Just what we need…a President who butts his nose into police matters at the ‘local’ level, infers the worst --“racial profiling" -- presumably because the accused is of-a-certain-race & 1 of 3 arresting officers isn’t; makes a public statement besmirching the police department, stirring a racial firestorm that he struck all by himself…
Then it’s, ‘Oops. My words were ill-chosen…but we can see how racial issues are still very sensitive in America...’
Sure; when the President makes it so!
Just what we need in times like these. (His supporters call him cool-handed, steady & level-headed, remember? And they said Sarah Palin wasn’t ready for Prime Time…??)
His answer to the problem that he created? ‘Hey guys, come on over to the White House & let’s have a beer.’
Classy, Barak; real classy.
Just what I want of the American President: micro-managing law enforcement based on deluded perceptions of racism. (Those Reverend Wright tapes just keep on playin'...) Then we get – the whole world gets - this dignified image: regular beer guzzlin’ Joe, yucking it up with the fellas.
Not that I’m against having a beer with friends, mind you. But the President of the United States of America should be of a more dignified persuasion. The ‘office’ should carry authority & honor. A meeting with him should assume a higher caliber of social intercourse than poppin’ tops in the Oval Office.
I said from the beginning, this guy is a low-class, ill-refined, undignified, socially unsophisticated boob. He proves me right almost daily, friends.
If that makes me sound like a snob, I apologize to your sensibilities. I won’t, however, back away from my position.
The Office of the Presidency deserves better.
The American People deserve better.
I deserve better - than this.
