Obama Opens Mouth & Inserts Foot; Has Vendetta With Sgt. Crowley

So it seems President Obama has a grudge against Sgt. James Crowley of the Cambridge Police Department.

He defended his remarks last night claiming that Sgt. Crowley "acted stupidly" in arresting Professor Gates last week. In an interview with Terry Moran of ABC News, Obama stated:

I have to say I am surprised by the controversy surrounding my statement because I think it was a pretty straight forward 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.

I think that I have extraordinary respect for the difficulties of the job that police officers do. And my suspicion is that words were exchanged between the police officer and Mr. Gates and that everybody should have just settled down and cooler heads should have prevailed. That's my suspicion.

It doesn't make sense to arrest a guy in his own home if he's not causing a serious disturbance.

How does Obama know Gates wasn't causing a serious disturbance? Remember this is the guy who said he didn't have all the facts on the case but was willing to state the Cambridge Police were "acting stupidly."

Well, let President Obama continue to defend his remarks. Let President Obama continue his personal vendetta with Sgt. Crowley and the Cambridge Police Department. Because if he insists on going down that road he is going to lose a lot of people who jumped on his bandwagon last November. Law abiding people don't like police being unjustly criticized much less being characterized as stupid.
