We would say the same of any American chief executive. President Obama erred with his rush-to-judgment assessment that a Cambridge, Mass.police officer "acted stupidly" in arresting a citizen in that citizen's own home. Most of you are familiar with the conflicting versions of what happened. The president was right to express very real interest and concern, and most especially correct to acknowledge that he had yet to access all of the facts. He should have left it there until all the facts were in. Obviously there are people who believe the man who was arrested had "acted stupidly" in his response to the police officer. While criminal charges were dropped, hard feelings and resentment remain. And the lowest common denominators on both ends of the political spectrum have an excuse to go into the rabid jackal mode. The truth is that everyone should learn something from the incident. That would include the president.


This cat has a lot more, including Osamas 17 year reason to hate the Cambridge police.

What was the policeman supposed to learn? Don't bother someone who's busy breaking into a house?

I learned that there's a Harvard professor named Gates and I learned that I don't like him.
