President of the U. S. insults Cambridge police

The President of the United States attacks a Cambridge cop trying to do his job, saying the Cambridge police “acted stupidly.”

This is beyond the pale. Especially since he prefaced his remarks with the fact that Harvard Professor Henry Gates is a friend and that made him prejudiced in his favor and then admitting he did not have all the facts. Yet he continued to comment on it on national tv in a prime time presidential press conference.

The leader of the free world meddling in a local matter that doesn’t even rise above a misdemeanor?  If ever a question cried out for a “no comment” reply, this was it.  One would expect better judgment from the most intelligent man in the world.

Harvard Scholar Disorderly Sgt. James Crowley, Cambridge cop.

See report and great video of a short interview of Sgt Crowley and some emails and comments from a Boston station.

Also go here for a link to the Imus interview with Michael Graham this morning on this subject.

This whole thing with the question on Gates and so forth, was it staged in order to divert attention from the horrible press conference that rambled on for an hour without answering any question??  If so, well, it worked.  Well, sort of.  CNN is waiting for the Town Hall in Ohio where he will speak yet again on what will reportedly be more scare tactics on the health care issue.
