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

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."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.
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).
