That said, as President of the United States you are expected to show some dignity and class in respect to the office and to the American people. Me making an off-color joke while sharing a beer with my drinkin' buddies is a lot different then Obama making an offensive joke on national T.V.
Can you imagine of Bush had said such a thing? He would be crucified in an instant! What about if he made a racial joke, after all...who hasn't cracked a racial joke right?
