Does the nation still have a hangover from the "beer summit"?
If I was Obama, I would have held the "summit" inside White House behind "closed doors". If I was truly serious about the event from a racial perspective, I wouldn't have wanted the meeting between myself, Gates and Crowley to have been tainted by making it a media spectacle. The event looked so "fake". Why was Joe Biden there? Was Joe that thirsty for a brew? I've read stories saying that Biden was invited to add "racial equilibrium" to the meeting. In a way I suppose that made sense. Obama and Gates are two black guys with radical hang ups on the issue of race that were sitting across from what they saw as a white "pig" police officer. I guess Biden was the neutral ice breaker at the event. I wonder did Joe tell Sgt. Crowley how "clean and articulate" Obama was for an African American? Until the next racial knee jerk event occurs, I can honestly say I'm glad this is over!!!!
