I have decided to start a new series of posts entitled W.W.A.A.D. From time to time, NObama will do or say something that will inspire me to give my opposing view and I will explain what I would do differently, were I the POTUS. I think readers will find a marked difference in our styles. Talk about your "understatement"!!!
Well, it didn't take the lead dummycrat very long to inspire me. I no more than came up with this new format when I found this gem in today's (July 22nd)news:
However, Obama continued, "I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that [Gates case]. But I think it's fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That's just a fact."
Here's the link to the article.
My answer would have been more like this:
"Well, not having been there and not knowing exactly what went on, all I can say is that it seems as though things got a bit out of control. I have no way of knowing who is to blame for that. I am confident that the City of Cambridge and the State of Massachusetts are competent enough to sort the whole thing out and handle things accordingly, without me adding to the problem by interjecting national politics into the mix. Next question?"
This story does not appear to be going away. Follow this link for NObama's follow-up and see how much worse he managed to make the whole affair. Here's just a teaser few paragraphs of what he and his idiot Gibbs had to say.
"I have to say I am surprised by the controversy surrounding my statement, because I think it was a pretty straightforward commentary that you probably don't need to handcuff a guy, a middle-aged man who uses a cane, who's in his own home," Obama said.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said today that the president was not calling the Cambridge police officer stupid when he criticized his actions in the Gates incident.
On whether the president regrets the use of his words, Gibbs said: "No. He was not calling the officer stupid. The situation got out of hand."
NObama was "surprised"? Most anyone with a frigging BRAIN CELL would have expected some serious backlash. What an idiot! Gibbs, get your facts straight!! He most certainly DID call Sgt. James Crowley stupid!
God, when will these idiots get a frigging clue? Gibbs, as of right now your name has been changed. You are now "D.C. Bob". You are even more STUPID than Baghdad Bob ever thought of being!
As most of you probably know by now, the police in Cambribge and Massachusetts, as well as, I suspect, throughout the country, extremely pissed off at our not-so-beloved POTUS for being so unbelievably arrogant as to say ANYTHING AT ALL about this incident. The pompous asshole just can not seem to learn that sometimes it is best to keep one's piehole SHUT!! Some things are NOT a result of racism no matter WHO claims that to be the case. If the frigging asshole that tried to break into his own home and then got pissed off at the police for questioning him had been WHITE, do you really think the cops would have been fine with that? I think NOT!! No one has the right to get belligerent with authority for just doing their job. Here's a few more paragraphs of how people close to the scene are reacting to this story:
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – A black police officer who was at Henry Louis Gates Jr.'s home when the black Harvard scholar was arrested says he fully supports how his white fellow officer handled the situation.
Sgt. Leon Lashley says Gates was probably tired and surprised when Sgt. James Crowley demanded identification from him as officers investigated a report of a burglary. Lashley says Gates' reaction to Crowley was "a little bit stranger than it should have been."
Asked if Gates should have been arrested, Lashley said supported Crowley "100 percent."
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A multiracial group of police officers on Friday stood with the white officer who arrested a prominent black Harvard scholar and asked President Barack Obama and Gov. Deval Patrick to apologize for comments the union leaders called insulting.
Dennis O'Connor, president of the Cambridge Police Superior Officers Association, said Obama's remarks were "misdirected" and the Cambridge police "deeply resent the implication" that race was a factor in the arrest.
"President Obama said the actions of the CPD were stupid and linked the event to the history of racial profiling in America," O'Connor said. "The facts of the case suggested that the president used the right adjective but directed it to the wrong party."
The charge was dropped Tuesday, but Gates has demanded an apology, calling his arrest a case of racial profiling.
FUCK HIM!! There is NO WAY he deserves an apology and there is NO WAY I would have dropped the charges. What a crock of SHIT that was!!! Any apologies due in this mess are due from F###ing NObama!! Our police deserve much better than that!
