My bad. I should have said his 'stupid' statement. I'm referring, of course, to his primetime remark about the 'stupid' arrest of Harvard Professor Gates at his home.
The president took the podium at the daily press briefing to say that he had spoken to Sgt. Crowley, the officer who arrested Professor Gates. He went on to say that Crowley and Gates are both decent men, but that blacks are sensitive about such things, and maybe they could all sit down for a beer, blah blah blah.
Bet he wishes he had kept his mouth shut about this one.
