So now, the story seems to be coming out and, guess what, the more we find out, the more we see that Gates deserved to be arrested. Don't take my word for it, though, take the word of the black police officer who was there. (Link here.) He's 100% certain that the arrest should have been made.
But enough of that. Obama (for certain) wants to move on and has done everything but apologize (and that failure is telling).
Obama said today that he's hoping this matter becomes a "teachable moment."
I agree. But guess what, Mr. President, you shouldn't be teaching the class . . . you should be enrolled as a student.
What does Obama need to be taught? Lots of things, but here are a couple of biggies:
1) Nobody, certainly not the President of the United States, should be commenting on issues like this one before gathering the facts; and
2) Sometimes (not always but at least sometimes) black people, even elite black people, who are arrested actually deserve it.
