Barack Obama … A Teaching Moment, Who’s? 46% of Voters Say Obama handled Cambridge Police, Crowley, Gates Arrest Poorly


The “teachable moment” is don’t play the race card and call people racists when it does not exist. Stop using the race card as a weapon! Racism is born from ignorance, what do we call it when one uses racism was a weapon?

Barack Obama … the teaching moment is yours. This may be a hard fact to swallow but not all white police officers are out to get the black man. It is actually disturbing that a sitting President of the United States assumed the worst of law enforcement before having none of the facts.

How can the teaching moment be one of racial profiling when that did not even occur during the incident between professor Gates and police officer Crowley? How does one have a teaching moment based on a false premise, a lie if you will? We might as well have a teaching moment on domestic abuse while we are at it, because that didn’t happen either and it goes on every day.

Juan Williams, on Fox News Sunday, did the country an immense service by recounting what exactly occurred: “The president spoke without the facts. You can’t have a ‘teachable moment’ if it’s based on a lie.”

What is the teaching moment that President Barack Obama is talking about when it comes to having  Harvard professor Gates and police officer Crowley over to the White House for a beer? By the way, who’s teaching moment is it, Obama’s?

Is it any wonder that by a 46% to 26% that American voters think that Barack Obama handled the incident involving a white Cambridge, Massachusetts policeman and a black Harvard professor poorly. Barack Obama was elected in part and seen as a racial healer. Instead, he admittingly fanned the flames of racism and created a national race issue from an incident where none existed.

Maybe Barack Obama can learn to not rush to judgment? Maybe the Obamamessiah can learn to not play the race card where none exists? Maybe The One can learn to actually gather the facts of a situation for bad mouthing the police and realize that just because someone is his friend, does not make them right? Maybe Obama can learn that it was not the police who racially profiled, but it was he, Barack Obama, who had it in his heart and mind with no facts that a white cop had to have wronged a black man?

What should be most disturbing to all Americans is that President Obama knew this question was coming in advance. On today’s Fox News Sunday, presidential press secretary Robert Gibbs admitted President Obama had been prepared to answer questions about the Henry Louis Gates arrest at his press conference last week.  So how did Obama not calculate his words properly when he knew in advance what he would say, hmm?

So now we know that President Obama didn’t properly “calculate” his words about the Cambridge police “acting stupidly” even after being prepared for such a question in advance.  Thus is revealed the president’s tone deafness in failing to anticipate the backlash such an answer might provoke.

Pajama Media provides 5 reasons why “Gate-gate” matters. It is important to read through what on earth Obama was thinking or attempting to accomplish.

Heck, Obama and the Dems have never learned from the last teaching moment when the President made a joke regarding Special Olympic.

      I think this incident shows our prez’s true color coming out!!! He shows blatent racism and worse than usual because he doesn’t even recognize it as such.

    2. SUPER DAVE on July 27th, 2009 10:07 am

      just a little reversal of the subject. this is what happens to a white man in America at the hands of blacks.
      now why can’t we use this as an excuse ?

      This just reassured me what I feel about this man posing as our leader. His agenda is abuntantly clear now, he is nothing more than a racist setting out to further their black theology agenda. He is right in line with his beloved Rev. Wright and his long time friend Professor Gates.

      He is nothing more than a hate hawking orator like Rev. Sharpton only he has been more tactful in getting into a position of power.

      Professor Gates used this opportunity to post their agenda as summoned by AG Holder.
      Prepare to be burdened with more of this race baiting and the stupidity of the Whitehouse.

      I think “I won” showed his true colors much earlier, like back when he sat in Rev. Wright’s church for 20 years. I was not one bit surprised by O’s answer, but then I’ve been listening to him for some time.

      I Won uses every excuse he can to lecture Americans on racism and to claim racism in everything.

      I am thinking that the great experiment of a black man in the Whitehouse, fixing all our problems and bringing us together has already failed and this will be our last one of this variety.

      We have elected a guy that is versed and experienced
      at working Racism, Redistribution, Redress, and Radicalism.
      He’s just not so great at handling the problems and business
      of the Presidency of the United States of America.

      I’m planning to invest in the Race Card printing Companies.

      I would just like to comment on the use of the “teachable moment” descriptor. When I first came upon this reference it meant that the student was intellectually open and available for a transmission of information from a teacher.

      Now, or in President Obama’s use, it seems to me to mean when the teacher believes that an information transmission, from the teacher to the student, is necessary or appropriate.

      This may be a subtle difference to many, but, to me, it emphasizes that the teacher’s agenda and state of mind, not the student’s, is the controlling aspect. This, again, to me, is not a “teachable moment”; I would describe it as a “dictate-able moment”.

      “Nuance,” I guess.

      Mr. “I Won” is a racist. Nuff said.

    9. ANewGirl on July 27th, 2009 3:53 pm

      This is a repeat, but again—will somebody please call Ace Hardware?

      A really big tool is missing.

      = Our Commander in Chief …UGH

      It is so good to see how the whole United States of America is rushing to respond to the incident with the overreactive policeman regarding Professor Gates. Now, Lets see this same group rush to post comments when a black person is getting the hell beat out of them from a cop for being black! Lets see whites being pulled over by Muslim police, pulled from their cars and beaten! Would you call them terrorists cops too?

    11. Pat in Alabama on July 27th, 2009 10:47 pm

      Racist absolutely, but I’m not so sure the whole thing wasn’t set up to cause a national uproar while they tried to slip Obamacare past the unsuspecting public. Luckily it didn’t work.

      And the audacity to suggest they sit down and have a beer now that he’s gotten his insult in. He’ll probably invite Rodney King too. “Can’t we all just get along?” (now that the rioting is over)

      #10 Caveman…I see your brain has just not developed enough to be on this blog…come back in about a million years! Oh, and take the good professor and Sir Michael, dog fighting, Vick with you…the country will be better for it.
