"One of these men was accused of having an animus towards the other by the third man in the picture, a self-proclaimed friend of the second. Does this picture corroborate either of those assertions?" -Hotair
"...I thank God that I live in a country in which police officers put their lives at risk to protect us every day, and, more than ever, I’ve come to understand and appreciate their daily sacrifices on our behalf. I’m also grateful that we live in a country where freedom of speech is a sacrosanct value and I hope that one day we can get to know each other better, as we began to do at the White House this afternoon over beers with President Obama." -Henry Louis Gates Jr.
"...And thank God that we have a President who can rise above the fray, bridge age-old differences and transform events such as this into a moment in the evolution of our society’s attitudes about race and difference. President Obama is a man who understands tolerance and forgiveness, and our country is blessed to have such a leader."
Actually, our country is doomed. Only a racist intellectual from Harvard can say that a president who created a firestorm of racial backlash, by playing the race card, is tolerant and understands forgiveness, without ever asking for forgiveness!
I agree with Dick Morris. The Office of the Presidency is diminished. If Obama doesn't get health care reform and cap and trade, he will be a three year lame duck.
Good... and bad.
I love this country and wish the American people would have voted last November with eyes wide open, but they did not. Now we find ourselves in dangerous times with a lightweight pretender in the most powerful office in the land.
Obviously many people are pouring out the Kool-Aid. Hope has faded, the change was too much and in the wrong direction. Better late than never. Now it is time for the American people to sober up and change course.
The congressional recess is Waterloo. Will the people get the Democrats' attention? America, as we know it, is in the balance.
