So... our President demonstrates a "mind set" of superiority over people with developmental disabilities on Jay Leno's show last night. Fairly typical in today's intolerant society, where it's fine to say things about these folks with little or no repercussion.
I'd like to tell the Pres. that I know a man with a developmental disability who could mop up the bowling alley with him and his hurtful language. Unfortunately, this man's teeth are rotting, so he might have to take a short break during the process. But hey; the discussion's been started, so let's keep it going.
When he says "It was like the Special Olympics or something." regarding his 129 bowling score, is he disparaging Special Olympics? Of course not. He's saying that folks who participate in Special Olympics are less than the non-disabled population, and it's ok to use them as an example of such.
Is the President aware that people with developmental disabilities have some of the worst healthcare in the world? Including in the USA? Special Olympics Report. Perhaps the President should be apologizing to this community for the continued medical neglect they face.
