Last week President Obama said something very stupid at the end of his health care press conference.  He took a question regarding his friend, Professor Gates of Harvard, and the situation with police.  He said that he didn't know anything about the situation, but that the police probably acted stupidly.  Saying you don't know anything about a particular situation automatically negates any input you have on a particular thing.  It was surprisingly Biden-esque.

But this week, he's called the professor, and the police officers involved to the White House to hash it out.  That's pretty cool.  Barack Obama reminds me of a TV dad from the 80s or early 90s, in which he realizes he did something stupid, but thinks of a clever way to resolve the situation, except there's no cheesy music playing in the background...yet.
