    The "right-wing"????

    Umm....Massachusetts is generally left wing, and they are not pleased with Dear Leader's sudden case of foot-in-mouth:

    Obama stirs racial passions in Harvard case | Reuters
    But many in Massachusetts said he crossed a line by passing judgment on police while acknowledging he did not have all the facts. Online polls in Massachusetts show strong support for the white arresting officer. A police union and his department's chief also came out strongly in his defense.
    Dear Leader knew he didn't have all the facts, he said he didn't have all the facts, but with little more information than a white police officer arrested his black buddy, Dear Leader was able to pronounce on national TV that the Boston PD "acted stupidly."

    That little remark will likely cost Dear Leader dearly in his polling numbers--and once his poll numbers get below 50%, he's done for (that's the vulnerability in governing based on personality and ability to read from a teleprompter--once you are moved off script you're toast).

    He did huh? Well, glory be. Maybe there's some hope for Limbaugh after all.

Not only did he grow up with black kids, some of whom are friends to this day, but he is also the officer who attempted to save the life of a Cambridge University basketball player who collapsed on the court, and later died. Are his actions that of a racist? Hell no. What we witnessed with this story was an act of race baiting by the college professor. Morale of this story? Black people can be racists too.

    They both owe each other an apology. The cop owes Gates an apology for the bad arrest. Gates owes the cop an apology for calling him a racist.

    President Obama should have just been quiet. Had he not said anything I don't think this would have gone anywhere. Jerks meet on the street every day and live up to their monikers. This was just another day.

    Until the President decided to get involved.

    Why is he publicly taking sides anyway?
