Please vote. There’s 1 vote so far AND IT’S ME!! LOL. (Now there’s more – thank you thank you.)
UPDATE: Representative McCotter (R/Michigan) calls for an Obama apology – a real one. He agrees with me :).
The issue is really the power of the presidency coming against a citizen. We’re talking about Cambridge, Massachuetts, a liberal stronghold. I just learned Cambridge has a black woman as a mayor, and I knew that Massachuetts has a black governor, and the President of the United States is black. So I just don’t get it. You mostly hear statements like: “There is a history of racism in this county, especially in the deep South….” and I think we get a bad rap. Massachuetts definitely is not the “deep south” and yet and still there is this high profile racial incident. I haven’t heard of anything like that around here, but then nobody would have heard of this had the President not inappropriately injected himself in it.
Old saying: It’s not what you know but who you know. True. But the president should realize he’s not in Chicago. 🙂 A teachable moment. For him.
Lord, Here’s a little insight into the thinking of Professor Gates. Chip on shoulder. Or maybe boulder on shoulder.
Old saying: Get the plank out of your own eye so you can better see how to get the speck of dust out of another’s. Quote of One of considerable influence.
UPDATE: Video/audio of 911 call and dispatch released:
We still haven’t heard what Professor Gates had to say.
H/T: RBO. Thank you.
