There was nothing “stupid” about Obama’s remark dealing with Professor Gates and Sgt. Crowley.
The more I read about it, the more I think the incident was not a slip of the tongue, but a well planned diversion.
Barack Obama needs a diversion or two.
First: Sarah Palin leaves office this weekend. If Barack Obama had not made his “stupid” remark, no one would be paying attention to Barack Obama. It would be all Sarah Palin all the time.
Second: By making his “stupid” remark, Barack Obama diverts attention from his failing health care debacle.
Bill Clinton could not have done better.
It’s all about Barack Obama – all Barack Obama all the time. NOTHING else must get in the way of the Barack Obama show.
