Will the Real Obama please stand up?
Remember back in July when Professor Gates of Harvard was arrested? That was on the afternoon of Thursday, July 16.
Less than a week later, on Wednesday, July 22, on a prime-time news conference, Obama said
… I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That’s just a fact.”
In other news, on Thursday, November 5, Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan went on a shooting spree and killed 13 people (including Francheska Velez and her unborn child) and wounding 38 others.
As of today, Tuesday, November 16, Obama’s latest statement is
… President Obama on Friday cautioned against jumping to conclusions on the motive of the suspect.
“We don’t know all the answers yet and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts,” Obama said in the Rose Garden of the White House.
