Obama should apologize, Gates should apologize, and Crowley should apologize. They all acted like great big dummies.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
"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.

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?All things considered, Gates should consider himself lucky.

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.Gates could have gone in his house and shut up.
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.HE is the one that escalated it. A police officer simply responding to a call shouldn't have to listen to that ish.
Both are guilty of poor judgment. Even Crowley's own department said as much.
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.
