It has become obvious why Obama travels with his teleprompter. If he goes "off script" he shows what he really thinks. (Remember the "spread the wealth comment to Joe the Plumber?)
Here's what was said on Jay Leno:
Watch the video here.
Leno: “I imagine the bowling alley has been just burned and closed down.”
Obama: “No, no, I have been practicing... I bowled a 129.”
Leno: “That’s very good, Mr President.”
Obama: “It’s like - it was like the Special Olympics, or something.”
What would have happened if Bush had said something like this?
As someone who works with children with special needs, I know these special children have more class than Obama will ever have.
