    Obama says regrets remark in racially charged case


    Obama says regrets remark in racially charged case


    Obama made his comments after talking on the telephone to Sgt. James Crowley, the Cambridge, Massachusetts, police officer who made the arrest, and discussing inviting Crowley and Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates to the White House for a beer.

    "Because this has been ratcheting up and I obviously helped to contribute ratcheting it up, I wanted to make clear in my choice of words I think I unfortunately gave an impression that I was maligning the Cambridge Police Department or Sgt. Crowley specifically," Obama said. "And I could have calibrated those words differently."


    while not a full apology, the writing is on the wall. The O-man, knows he effed up and is now in full damage control mode. Do you think this is enough, or should it be a clear apology?

    What Obama messed with was telling the truth. He slipped and told America what he actually thought instead of what would have been politically safe. It's just another insight as to who the man really is.

    A white house beer is a pretty cheap price to pay if this all goes away.
    Thank you

    You think he could have 'calibrated' this apology differently too.

    Why don't he just talk to 'the people' like they were commoners instead of Hahvard law students.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Not enough for me. When you call someone stupid and want to walk it back, you don't say "I need to calibrate my words differently", you say "I'm sorry."

    I thought there was a lot of stupidity from both parties involved in the arrest.

    If Obama's statement is acceptable to the police he offended then I feel it's sufficient.
