    How many people here would be upset if the police came up to your door demanding ID?
    You mean after I was done breaking down my own front door and could reasonably expect and hope that some neighbor would see that and call the cops if it was a burglar?

    I wouldn't have been upset at all.

    Yes, since that's what would have happened to any white guy in the same situation doing the same dumb ****.

    So you're saying that The Messiah is allowed to use his high public office to do favors for his personal friends.

    I didn't Jesus was getting involved, but if you are talking about President Obama, he isn't "doing any favors", he was simply asked his opinion.

    Unless said burglars are counting on you thinking this, and thus decide to use the front door....

    Keep drinkin' that Kool-aid, bud.

    The President of the United States just did a major official favor for a personal friend. He slandered the cops.

    And if he had not supported his friend, you guys would be saying he threw him under a bus.

    The modis operandi of the right-wing is all too predictable, ...and lame.

    Actually, if he had not slandered the police in support of his friend, I wouldn't have even given it a thought.

    You mean like he did his white grandmother?

    Yeah, your Messiah is good for tricks like that.

    The correct response to the question was: "That's something for the parties involved to resolve."

    Why would Gates' need Dear Leader's support? Disturbing the peace is a misdemeanor--little more than a traffic ticket when all is said and done.

    All Dear Leader needed to say was something like "I don't have all the facts and so I don't wish to comment on it--I know Gates personally, and it would be wrong for me to speculate at this time."

    Not every situation calls for an opinion.

    Certainly. An investigation into the facts would be warranted, if there are charges of misconduct. I don't always accept the LE version of events, cops are human too.

    If there was police misconduct, which I doubt but if there was, then let the chips fall where they may and such disciplinary measures as are appropriate. I'd say the same whether it was a white subject or black or hispanic or Sumatran.
