Barack Obama Quick to Cry Racism in Arrest of Henry Louis Gates Jr & Cambridge Police Sgt. James Crowley
There are two sides to a story, too bad Obama didn’t care.
The Obamamessiah who was supposed to bring peace & tranquility has now started a race issue. All because he did not care enough to wait for the facts. Who knew the change that people voted for was electing Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to the White House? One would think that The One would have the brains to wait for the details before crying racism. Maybe Obama was listening those 20 years while in the pews with reverend Wright?
Racism is based on ignorance. However, what would you call commenting on a story and calling it racism that you knew nothing about other than the fact that a black man was arrested that was your friend.
That would be called IGNORANT!
Thus was the case with President Barack Obama when he answered the final question of his Obamacare disastrous press conference the other night. The “not ready for prime time” President literally submarined his entire health care agenda by answering a question regarding the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr who was arrested in Cambridge, MA by Police Sgt. James Crowley.
It was bad enough that Obama attacked doctors during his Obamacare presser, but then, without any real knowledge of events of the arrest, called the Cambridge police stupid. So in one press conference on health care, Obama manages to bash both docs and cops. Once again we have Obama acting in a rush to judgment. Much like the rush that he wanted put on his health care reform. It is bad enough The One made the comment without knowing the facts, but he refuses to back off them. Was it not the Democrats that used to call GWB unbending in his ways?
Neither President Obama nor his press secretary would back off from the president’s statement Wednesday night that the Cambridge police department acted “stupidly” in arresting Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates.
The fact of the matter is no one knows what really happened and for a sitting President of the United States to make such in irresponsible comment … is just that, irresponsible. This is hardly the actions of what a President should do. However, when one has training wheels on, what else are we supposed to get in return?
The Gateway Pundit has other reactions to Obama’s comments
On a Boston radio program this morning, Bill Cosby suggested that President Obama spoke too soon on the controversial arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates.
“I’ve heard about five different reports [on the details of the arrest],” Cosby said on Boston’s WZLX. “If I’m the president of the United States, I don’t care how much pressure people want to put on it about race, I’m keeping my mouth shut.”
“I was shocked to hear the president making this kind of statement,” Cosby said referring to the president’s remarks during last night’s press conference
Sgt. James Crowley tells his side of the story. I wonder if Barack Obama cares to hear the other side? Probably not, seeing that he already popped off and would look like a complete idiot if he reversed himself.
Sgt. James Crowley said Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. was combative from the moment the officer arrived at his house last week to respond to a call about a possible burglary. As the confrontation escalated, Crowley said he warned Gates that he risked arrest.
“The second warning was with me holding a set of handcuffs in my hands — something I really didn’t want to do,” Crowley said in a radio interview. “The professor at any time could have resolved the issue by quieting down and/or going back inside his house.”
