They Say it So Well

Regarding Obama, Professor Henry Gates, and Sgt. Crowley: Bore Patch says it so very well.

Obama really annoyed every professional police officer in the country with his prejudiced (that is to say, pre-judged) assumption that the police were in the wrong. Barack Obama, President of the United States, stated going in that he didn’t have all the facts – but pre-judged the police anyway. Not wise, especially speaking as POTUS.

The President spoke about ‘profiling’ being a problem, and now every single time a black person gets pulled over for a traffic violation by a white cop, they’re going to claim it’s profiling.

If there’s one person on the planet who really should think things through before he opens his mouth, it’s Obama. What the President (any POTUS) says, has implications. It matters. It causes repercussions.

President Obama has just made the work of the police much more difficult and dangerous, and has done nothing to decrease racism at all.

UPDATE: Obama just gave a half-baked apology for his “choice of words” but refused to admit that he was wrong, otherwise. Obama is regretting his choice of words because he is taking heat for it, not because he thinks his position is wrong. His apology is entirely self-serving.

That’s like shooting someone, then apologizing by saying “I’m sorry I got caught”. It’s no apology at all. It’s impossible to fix this – to do that, he’d need a time machine.

    In my opinion Obama acted stupidly by opening his mouth. He never seems to amaze meon how truly nigardly he behaves.Obama needs to stand up and make a public apology not only to Mr. Gates, but to all of America. Not that he will, because it is also my opinion he dosn’t have enough hair on his butt to do it.
