As you all know, I am a big supporter of President Obama and think the world of him and most of his policies. I have also not visited or posted on this Political Forum for over a month due to the plummeting level of discourse here. However, I felt a need to weigh in on the injustice done by President Obama last night. Very simply, if: 1) You admit that you are personally biased towards a friend of yours involved in a dispute 2) You admit you do not know the particulars of the dispute 3) You are the leader of a country where this issue is an extremely sensitive subject Then, you do NOT weigh in with an opinion on the dispute. You simply SHUT THE HELL up about it until you have incontrovertable facts. What Barack Obama did last night regarding the Professor Gates case is a disastrous injustice to both Sgt Crowley and to any and all minorities who in the future may have LEGITIMATE complaints against prejudicial police treatment. I still support Barack Obama and pray for his success, but he fell several pegs in my personal estimation last night.
