Barry S. can't speak for himself???

I think a defimation of character case is in order...

"Spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters that Obama felt that when it was clear that scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. was not a burglary suspect last week, "at that point, cooler heads on all sides should have prevailed."

At a Wednesday news conference, Obama had said that Cambridge police "acted stupidly" by citing Gates on a resisting arrest charge, which was quickly dropped.

Watch: Obama's full response to Gates' arrest

He had not faulted the actions of Gates, who he said is a friend.

"Let me be clear, he was not calling the officer stupid," Gibbs told reporters as Obama landed in Cleveland for two health care events Thursday.

He said Obama felt that "at a certain point the situation got far out of hand" at Gates' home last week.

A neighbor had reported a possible burglary when Gates and his driver were seen trying to force open his front door, which was jammed.

By the time police arrived, Gates was inside and showed proof of his residency. But he did not obey Sgt. James Crowley's order to step outside, and after words were exchanged, he was arrested.

Obama answered a question about the Gates incident at his Wednesday news conference, although he noted he did not know all the details.

Gibbs said the president did not regret his Wednesday remarks, but wanted to clarify that he was not calling the arresting officer stupid. "

WTF? Obama was perfectly clear. A friend of his got arrested and the cops got it wrong.

"my understanding is Professor Gates showed his ID to show this is is house and at that point he gets arrested for disorderly conduct"

"I don't know, not having been there, not seeing all the facts what role race played in that"

"number 3 there is a long history in this country of african americans and latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately"

In other words I don't know what the **** I'm talking about, but I just can't stop blabbing because I like to hear myself blab. Also I don't have the facts but lets see if I can create another crisis by telling everyone cops are stupid and racist.

I hope that answered your question.

Obama should have left it alone. He should of simply stated I don't know the facts and can't comment on that. Period. I find it very interesting that the media is now re reporting the story as the man showed his ID when asked. Thats completely false.

I've noticed now that the door was no longer locked, but instead "jammed"

And he got arrested for being an azzhat about the whole deal.

My jaw hit the floor when I heard O say that last night. As well as many other times in his speech.

I caught him say "I am the President" at least twice which I didn't like his tone on that. We know you're the President, do you actually think this whole group would be sitting in front of you listening to this socialist garbage if you weren't?

WELL, I guess since tensions are SO HIGH on this issue and Barry S. has chosen to indulge the press WE will get to see him do some "Communtiy Organizing"... Oh wait, he already took sides and called the LEO stupid... Hmmm, not a good start...

It was all pretty simple to me. Obama is a racist. Plain and simple.
That is my take on it. If it would have been a white guy and a black cop, you think it would have ever made the news?

Why did POTUS even make a statement on the matter? Race. No other reason. :|err

1. He showed a college ID....I don't know about you but none of my college ID's had my address on them.

2. College or school ID is not a legal ID.

3. All citizens are REQUIRED to present legal ID when asked by law enforcment.

Exactly what ANY president should have done, (and, interestingly, every one prior to this guy).

The Narcissist Obama has to get in front of a camera to show off his position (that of President), and recieve the adulation that his psyche craves so much, while spouting off on things he has very few (or no) facts about.

I love it every time O gets in front of the camera. He looks like more and more like an asshat every time. I hope his handlers keep him front and center!

Thanks guys for your reassurance.

After bantering this topic with Thumbs and Chillin, AND after Barry S. took the professors side, I was beginning to doubt myself......

NOT!!! :D

Again we see how he goes way off the reservation with his true thoughts when it isn't preplanned and displayed on the Teleprompter. Biden gets all the ink about babbling but O is the one who has no control of what he says.

Actually his comments about the Gates situation were to me the only thing he said that was from the heart w/o lying and how he truly felt.

Take note America. And I guarantee his ratings among Police Unions definitely dropped. Every day he loses a little more credibility and a few more supporters..... Say "Oh shitt!!!!" Johnny Boy. :)hand

Exactly.

This week alone He slammed cops, blew his big press conference, could not answer specifics about his health care bill.
Even Letterman mocked Him with a clip made from his Press Conference.
NOW, I just saw on Fox a clip from him answering a reporter yesterday regarding his judgment of the police:

"I don't understand the controversy about my statement. It was straight forward. A middle aged Man with a cane doesn't need handcuffed."

WOW, now he knows better than cops about arrest procedures!!
He is refusing to amend his statement. This guys ego and PURE narcissism is really something to behold.
Cambridge PD statement says: "We are deeply hurt by this."

Bye Bye PD union support..

I wouldnt discount the LEO union support, they have a symbiotic relationship... The Union Boss's get greased and Barry gets votes, the democratic senators and congress get votes...

The Union workers (this officer inclusive) and taxpayers get THE SHAFT...

"number 3 there is a long history in this country of african americans and latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately"


Must have something to do with a disproportionate percentage of them making up our prison population.

If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck.

O should stick to reading the prompter and STFU about something he knows nothing about.

Yeah pretty funny how they overlook the statistics about blacks and latinos committing more crimes per capita than whites. That wouldn't have anything to do with the proportions of arrests, conviction, and incarcirations would it. Just big bad whitey at work.:)sphss

I heard it was jammed due to a prior break in attempt. I think people need to look at this area of Cambridge. It is ridden with daytime break-ins like most college communities where burglars can expect nobody to be home during class hours. Break-ins are normal and this was taken as such.

it was in my opinion; a well executed diversion plan to move the focus
of the health care BS bill out of the minds of the sheeple and media.

what better way to rally the black community support back to obama,
than to accuse a white policeman of racial profiling.

notice everything on tv today is about this , not health care:|err
