Why would the President of the United States wade into the Gates-Crowley issue? Here we have a professional policeman trying to do his job and an arrogant academic getting arrested for his own belligerence and disorderly conduct. Then we have a “beer summit” to cover up the President’s need to apologize to all the policemen in the country who he insulted at a news conference in the White House. Now who really “acted stupidly”? Is this where George Washington would have gone?
“I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” –George Washington
