He should've stayed out of this one: http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0709/Obama_Cambridge_police_acted_stupidly.html Obama's good friend, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., was arrested this week by Cambridge, MA police. Gates is black. He cried, "racism." Obama decided to weigh in. He called the police actions "stupid," and launched a sermon about racial profiling. Note to Obama: When you have to start your response with, "I don’t know – not having been there and not seeing all the facts," perhaps that's all you should say. Stupid response. Of course, he'll get a pass by most. Most presidents would've been strung up for a gaffe like that.
