WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama said Wednesday that police acted "stupidly" in the arrest of prominent black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. and that despite racial progress blacks and Hispanics are still singled out unfairly for arrest.
So Barack Obama clearly needs no further investigation into this incident. He has already decided that the police acted wrongly and that the Harvard professor was the victim of profiling.
This is the sort of sober, fact-driven careful consideration of facts we expected from Obama isn’t it?
Well, ironically enough, in my case, this is EXACTLY the sort of behavior I expected from Obama.
