Barack Obama Reads This Blog

That’s right.  I know he does because just hours after I called for his apology regarding the ‘Special Olympics’ comment on Jay Leno, he did.  How do I know he read it here, you ask?  Well, because I can tell, that’s why.  Alright, so regardless of whether or not he read it here, B.O. did apologize for his remarks.  He called chairman of the Special Olympics, Tim Shriver,  to express his apologies and then went on to say some of the competitors were more than welcome to visit the White House for bowling or basketball.  Well that was nice B.O., and to think I doubted you.  Well now that I know you read this blog I have some more advice for you:  fire turbe-tax Geithner, fire Nancy Pelosi, fire all of congress, stop being a socialist, and quit spending all the money you can get your hands on.  Now get to work, that’s only the beginning!

What do you think about his apologies?  What other famous people do you think read this blog?  Leave your comments below or send us and e-mail at theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Poll of the Day: What Do You Think of Barack’s Special Olympics Comments?

For those that missed B.O.’s comments about the Special Olympics, the story can be found here.  What do you think about those comments?  As I said in my article, I think they were over-the-line and he should apologize rather than hide behind a White House Press Release.  Vote in today’s poll to see how your opinion compares to other readers of The Conservative Journal!
