    Unfortunately his ego got in the way.
    Wrong, he was leaving the porch, and Gates continued to yell at him and call him a racist.

    Gates could have gone in his house and shut up. HE is the one that escalated it. A police officer simply responding to a call shouldn't have to listen to that ish.

    When Gates said, "You haven't heard the last of me", it could have been interpreted as a threat, too. All things considered, Gates should consider himself lucky.

    Obama should apologize, Gates should apologize, and Crowley should apologize. They all acted like great big dummies.

    Why should he shut up? He's in his own house!

    Are you one of those who have been psychologically beaten in submission by the police so that you believe that you should always keep your mouth shut so as not to be held in contempt of cop?

    "Poor choice of words"? Good one, Barack.

    So it didn't occur to him that "stupidly" was a poor choice of words for a situation involving a POLICE officer that he qualified by saying he didn't know all the details about?

    I think we got a big look into the soul of Obama. Apologizing is not his nature. Can you imagine Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton apologizing? And this situation has made it abundantly clear that Obama is nothing but another Jesse Jackson. He does not have all of our best interests at heart.

    He wasn't leaving the porch. He was in the man's house when he asked the man to take it outside.

    Oh cry me a river, obviously you don't what it means to be a cop. What was the threat? The only way one would interpret that as a threat is if they were stupid or corrupt and just looking to pile charges.

    All things considered, Gates should consider himself lucky.
    Why? Because the cops didn't arrest him for another trumped up charge or he didn't get his ass kicked for being a loud mouthed dick?

    So? That's not a crime. It's being a dick, but it's not a crime.

    Gates could have gone in his house and shut up.
    Sure, but he didn't have to. This is America, he can speak his mind, even if he sounds like a blubbering, race baiting, scumbag when he does it.

    HE is the one that escalated it. A police officer simply responding to a call shouldn't have to listen to that ish.
    They both did. The officer could have just kept walking, his job was done. But he chose to stay there and confront Gates tirade. There was no purpose in that.

    Both are guilty of poor judgment. Even Crowley's own department said as much.

    You're distracting from the basic issue here.

    The PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES took time in a press conference that was supposed to be about healthcare to call a Cambridge, MA, police officer stupid.

    Has a president ever gone after an individual citizen like that before?

    I wonder if he'd like to berate the dogcatcher in Tarrant County here, too.
