    If the president of the United States asked me to come to the White House I would go without question.

    Why because he is the President of the United States, that's not a reason. Like I said Mr. Obama is the person who has caused this mess along with Prof. Gates it is up to both of them to seek the Officer out and make the Apology in person.

    If I ever got a call from the Mr. Obama's Personal Sec. about me come to meet him I would tell the Sec. in no certain words that I would not be come to meet him and if he doesn't like it then tough **** get over it and apologies like a real Man does.

    I think ALL sides overreacted and this includes this police officer. Let them work it out and move on.

    Free, tasty food, autographs I could sell on ebay, and once Obama has some alcohol in his blood, I'd ask for an apology and an engraved iPod like Queen Elizabeth got.

    An investigation by their Department Standards Division found that the officer acted exactly according to policy.

    I would not give them the "good press" of having me up "for a beer" without apologies from both.
    Personally, I'd go on the air and trash them both and tell Obama to stick his apology in his ass.

    But I'm spiteful and angry.

    Brother James, I highly doubt that the secret service would let you anywhere near the Whitehouse.

    Just sayin'.....

    If I were the cop I would go to the white house, shake hands, and be friends in the interest of what is a rather small matter when boiled down to it's basic components. And don't even get me started about the melodramatic race war, put a sock in it cry babys
