    Obama made a mistake by using the term stupid in his characterization of the Cambridge police.
    He admitted he over reacted. He correctly characterized professor Gates and officer Crowley as over reacting.

    He is attempting to bring himself, professor Gates and officer Crowley together to show we all can move past this situation together.

    That is how we need to work solutions to our societal problems. We have way too much divisive politics in today's world. The other side will not give the other side a chance.

    Too many people on this site spend too much time name calling and blaming rather than looking for mutual solutions.

    Your attitude is the problem with today's political atmosphere. Obama pulled back from his "stupid" statement and called the police officer. He has tried to get all three men together to make peace.

    Officer Crowley refuses to admit he did anything wrong, even though he did over react.

    Professor Gates refuses to admit he did anything wrong, even though he did over react.

    Obama has shown more character than Gates or Crowley.

    Sorry that is not good enough for you. I am guessing no matter what Obama does it will not be good enough for you.
