Look alive bitches, president BO is going to throw back a few brewskies in order to diffuse the whole “Those cops are stupid” situation.
U.S. President Barack Obama played bartender-in-chief on Thursday at a “beer summit” of the main players in a racially charged case that he hoped would be a “positive lesson” in a national dialogue on race.
Obama, the first black U.S. president, said it was a “friendly, thoughtful” conversation over beer at the White House with prominent Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, who is black, and police Sergeant James Crowley, who is white.
Crowley arrested Gates, a well-known documentary filmmaker, for disorderly conduct on July 16 after a confrontation at the professor’s home, sparking a media frenzy as Gates, 58, accused the policeman of racial profiling. Crowley, who had taught courses against racial profiling, denied that. (via NYT)
In theory it sounds cool, but come on. You can’t wipe the tears and snot out of every cry baby’s face when you upset them.
The menu for the meeting round an outside table in the warm Washington afternoon featured each man’s preferred brew: Bud Light for Obama, Blue Moon for Crowley and Sam Adams Light for Gates. Vice President Joe Biden, also at the table, had a Buckler nonalcoholic beer.
Conclusion: Obama keeps it real with Bud Light, Crowley is a crybaby, Gates throws out the race card way too soon, and Biden needs to losen up.
