This is what happens when you take the teleprompter away from the teleprompter President. I don’t watch Leno, I never have, and certain have no incentive to watch the slobbering tonight with Hussein Obama and Jay Leno (who incidently made makes about Sully) the day of that airplane water landing in New York. ABC news (already making excuses for the remark) mentions the following:
Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute taping, the president talked about how he’s gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley, even bowling a 129.
“That’s very good, Mr. President,” Leno said sarcastically.
It’s “like the Special Olympics or something,” the president said.
