The Obama Presser

I'm not enough of an expert on health care policy to accurately assess much of what the president said tonight, but I will say this: that Henry Louis Gates answer was gutsy as hell. Nine politicians out of ten would have dodged the question or changed the subject or something else. Instead, Obama forcefully defended his friend and even went so far as to say the cops, who arrested a man for trying to enter his own house, were acting "stupid."

I can already hear Hannity tomorrow: "He called all police officers stupid!"

He was not arrested for entering his own home, He was booked for disorderly conduct after “exhibiting loud and tumultuous behavior,” according to a police report.

Honestly, from what I've read, it seems like the woman who called was acting "stupid", the officer was put in a no win situation by responding to the call.
