    Yes mr. president, We learned a lot from this.
    LOL, you got a snot-nosed black, liberal Ivy League professor and a white cop.

    Did anybody think this was gonna be a picnic at the beach?

    I still cant believe the cop went to this thing after being called stupid by the President. Of course the President took the back seat, b/c he couldnt afford saying another stupid ass thing again. And Lord knows, he comes down on the side of Gates more then 99% of the time.

    What a joke. Nothing Presidential about this entire thing. Just makes him look like a laughing stock even more. A beer summit?.....lol. Not even Joe Biden could make up such a comic relief event. Its equivalent to the Mike Dukakis in a tank bit back in the 80's. Only, even more embarassing.

    You're screwed. You may want to get arrested and make a big stink about it. Then you'll be entitled to at least a free beer. You could pass along stories to your son about the time you took a beer piss and let some beer farts out at the WH.

    The photo op with Gates and Crowley in suits and Dear Leader and the Mouth that Roared in shirtsleeves said everything that needed to be said about this "teachable moment"--namely that it was straight out of central casting.

    Biden missed out on a perfect oppurtunity to trip and fall over a hedge grove. That would have taken the attention off of Obama in this whole thing for a day or two.

    He could have pulled a Hot Shots! line and blamed it on the crabs, they work in pairs.

    Re: Obama more bartender than mediator at beer summit

    I though it was completely transparent that Obama had a Bud Lite.

    I mean seriously, no one at his station in life would actually drink that, it was obviously a media ploy.

    And a really stupid one, I don't think anyone should have to apologize for decent taste. Although, Fox News did give him **** for wanting dijon .

    What he should have done was had some Chicago micro, that way he could give a shout out to his home towns local beer scene.

    Alternatively he could have served Boston beer (Harpoons probably) because both the guys live there.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Re: Obama more bartender than mediator at beer summit

    I think Obama should have been a mediator had Gates and Crowley been at odds. In other words, if Gates and Crowley were still fighting about the issue, then Obama should have stepped in. I didn't see any fighting, and based on Crowley's words, the two men each have their own perspective of situation and they are moving on.

    Can someone tell me what Obama needed to mediate?

    Its actually possible that he really likes it. I have seen a lot of rich people who could afford anything they want prefer cheap booze. Still, it does piss me off when politicians try and connect with the people by "drinking what they drink". Fact is, a lot of poor people drink what they drink because they can't afford better. God knows that I never drank Popov by choice, and if I made president I would never drink it again.

    You're kidding, right?
