This iReport is part of an assignment:
Obama's late-night gaffe
Obama and the Special Olympics, the Disabled
Video I took last night in response to Obama's thoughtless comment on his bowling skills and the Special Olympics.
I am a USAF veteran and disabled. The disability, as you might guess, is a real sore point with me. To have a healthy person, with mind and body intact equate himself to me, someone like me, or someone worse than me, especially when that person is the President of the United States, is nothing short of insulting, regardless of whether or not it was intended to be.
Race relations? We need to have a conversation with the White House that is much more basic than race relations.
