Mitt already apologized for those comments and said they were wrong. Gosh I am sick of Obama...what happened to the 'nice guy' full of 'hope' I voted for? UGH.
New Low for Obama – Obama Campaign Exploits Woman With Down Syndrome to Attack Romney
The Obama campaign web site features a “letter of the week” from a 25-year-old woman, who writes, “I am one of the 47% of Americans who fall under Mitt Romney’s definition of ‘entitled’ and ‘unable to take responsibility for my life.’ I have Down syndrome.”
Daily Caller columnist Matt Lewis noticed the letter and took the Obama camp to task.
This is horrible for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is that Mitt Romney’s 47 percent comments had nothing to do with this. It’s also hypocritical, inasmuch as it is Obama – not Romney — who has been insensitive regarding special needs children.
As the Telegraph noted in ’09,
Asked by Mr Leno, who hosts the show, if he had been practicing bowling in his Washington office, Mr Obama joked that his highest score was the extremely low total of 129. “That’s very good, Mr President,” Mr Leno interjected in a sarcastic tone. Mr Obama then countered that the score was “like the Special Olympics or something”. (Emphasis mine.)
(And let’s not even get into all the attacks on Trig Palin coming from Obama’s friends on the left.)
Look, I get it. Campaigns are tough, but this is a below-the-belt accusation coming from the Obama campaign. I will anxiously wait to see if the mainstream media calls this a gaffe — or insists that Team Obama take down this letter.
Come on. This post is just bitterness. Romney should not have been so stupid as to make comment. It was NOT just clumsy speech it was WRONG. 47% are NOT dependent on government and Romney foolishly said they were using stats that referred to (YES!) people with down syndrome. I'm sorry, but quite lionizing the man and realize he was foolish and elitist in his comments toward the "lowly" 47% and he's not the humble man you guys make him out to be.
Not to mention the liberals are the ones who told Sarah Palin she should have aborted her son who has Downs and they push abortion as a "remedy" to less than perfect children...they are disgusting hypocrites who don't value any life but their own.
"This post is just bitterness". Bull! If a conservative had pulled this Crap instead of Obama, you'd be all over it! Your response is typical of leftist hypocrisy, Bigotry, and Intolerance! And as for your post, take your lies and STFU Bigot!
