Barack Obama promised transparency in his administration if he was elected. He lied. Obama also promised to give an accounting of every dollar spent out of his $787 billion stimulus bill. He lied about that too. But at least we now know what happened to $140 million of it: Obama's puppeteer, billionaire George Soros, the man who pulls Obama's strings, gave away $35 million of his own money in NY yesterday.
The feds ante'd up an additional $140 million to buy backpacks and school supplies for children on welfare. Naturally, when poor families in NY heard about the free cash, they came running. Thousands lined up at liquor stores and check cashing places to withdraw $200 per child in cash that magically appeared on their electronic benefit cards.
"It's free money!" said Alecia Rumph, 26, who waited in a Morris Park, Bronx, line 300 people deep for the cash to buy uniforms and book bags for her two kids. Source
While we know abuse will be rampant as welfare mothers spend the loot on liquor, weed and cigarettes, some vowed to spend the cash on their kids:
"Times are really tough right now. The situation is bad with money. So it's easy to want to use the money for other things," said Ana Barcos, 31, of Corona, Queens, where 200 people waited outside a check-cashing business.
"But if the money's supposed to be for my kids, then I will use it for my kids." Source
Another woman who took advantage of the gift to withdraw $800 for her 4 kids was a little more honest:
"I've been eyeing that flatscreen at Best Buy for months, with the $800 I received for my 4 kids now I can get it. Just in time for football season. GO JETS!!!!!!!!!!!!" Source
We already know that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton thinks she has bigger a bigger nut**** than her husband, former president Bill Clinton. Every chance she gets to put him down and degrade him, she takes it. I don't know why Bill continues to put up with her.
Yesterday, while participating in a question/answer session on foreign policy in the Congo, Clinton embarrassed Americans everywhere by rudely rebuffing an African student who simply asked her what her husband's thoughts were on foreign policy.
Clinton snapped: "My husband is not the Secretary of State, I am!" Clinton's response was replete with attitude and neck rolling that is typical of a vengeful, vindictive woman. Later, it was revealed that the translator meant to ask Clinton what Obama's thoughts were on foreign policy.
It's hard to imagine that Clinton would have reacted the same way had she been asked the same question about Obama.
The other day I posted a link where you could download the full House version of Barack Obama's proposed Universal Health Care Reform bill. After tracking the downloads I noted that only 17 of you downloaded the bill for review. Not 17% -- 17 downloads total!
That's a shame because it provides the bigots with more fuel to call us lazy and ignorant. The joke goes: if you want to hide something from black people, put it in a book.
So for the benefit of those of you who choose to go through life with blinders on, I will shine some light on sections of the bill that I feel will impact our community the most. Please remember that Obama himself has not read the bill, and has never read a bill before he signs it.
Chuck Norris (yes, that Chuck Norris) blogged about a section of the bill (Page 838) that he found particularly disturbing. The provision titled "home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children" would send "experts" into your home to "train" and educate you on child behavior and parenting skills.
While Norris has reason to be concerned about strangers evaluating his parenting skills, the program specifically targets the black community. After all, our community has the highest rate of poverty, out-of-wedlock childbirth and black-on-black crime that can be directly traced back to single-parent homes headed by black women.
On Page 840, the bill specifically targets "communities that are in high need of such services, especially communities with a high proportion of low-income families." That doesn't sound like Chuck Norris' neighborhood to me.
On the one hand, Socialized medicine sounds idealistic, but on the other hand, it's shaping up to be an Orwellian nightmare that could lead to population control of the black community.
Norris terms these services "discriminatory and even prejudicial stereotype and generalization that has no place in federal government, law or practice," and he wonders if the "education" will entail religious teachings as well.
Welcome to the New World Order kids! This is the Hope and Change you voted for.
A loyal reader and former government employee, who asked to remain anonymous, wrote in to say that while she believes all Americans should have insurance, she is opposed to government run health care. I don't blame her for feeling that way about the government. If you've seen the way the government runs public housing (broken toilets, broken windows, no ac/heat, etc.), then you already know how the government will run health care.
I read your peice and for a change, I have to say I strongly agree with you. I wanted to share my experience of being under government care with you and hopefully if you're interested, then you share with your readers. Please leave out my name or give an alias.:)
After thinking long and hard and researching on this whole health care reform policy, I realized I don't want any government-run healthcare. Only thing O can do for me is regulate those sheisty insurance companies, get rid of this stupid pre-existing condition policy, remove stupid high ass deductibles for CTscans & other expensive tests, keep medicare/medicaid for older, disable & poor. It doesn't makes sense to have to pay $50 office visit for a simple annual pap smear exam under United Health Care.
Remember when Obama was running for president and he bashed the big drug companies for over charging Americans for drugs? Obama promised if he won the election he would let the federal government negotiate Medicare drug prices that would could cut big drug industry revenues by $10 billion to $30 billion [a day].
Well, the big drug companies have just announced a plan to spend $150 million on ads to support Obama's health care reform. Which means the big drug companies have Obama securely in their back pocket -- exactly where they want him. So if ObamaCare passes, we can expect to pay the same high prices (or more) for our drugs. So much for Hope and Change!
Here's what Obama said in 2008:
"We will break the stranglehold that a few big drug and insurance companies have on the health care market.... It's become clear that some of these companies are dramatically overcharging Americans for what they offer.... We're not going to get change unless we can overcome the resistance the drug companies, the insurance companies, the HMOs, those who are making a major profit from the system currently. Now I think all these industries have a role to play.... We want to listen to what they have to say. They should have a seat at the table, but they can't buy every chair."
The White House has created an official 'snitch line' and email address for snitches to inform them of critics (such as myself) who oppose the Obama administration's efforts to impose Socialism on America.
They call our freedom to express ourselves "spreading misinformation."
So if this blog is taken offline you'll know why. Is this the Hope and Change you voted for?
The White House strategy of turning supporters into snitches when they see "fishy" information about the health care debate may run afoul of the law, legal experts say.
"The White House is in bit of a conundrum because of this privacy statute that prohibits the White House from collecting data and storing it on people who disagree with it," Judge Andrew Napolitano, a FOX News analyst, said Friday.
The White House said it wanted to be made aware of "fishy" comments about its health care plan because it wants to set the record straight. But critics called White House move an Orwellian tactic designed to control the health care debate.
"This is a very troubling attempt to stifle the free speech of Americans who have the constitutional right to express their opinion and concerns about health care," said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice. He called on Obama to repudiate his blog.
"This move is an attempt to intimidate those who have legitimate concerns about the health care plan," Sekulow said. "And, worse, it turns the White House into some sort of self-appointed 'speech police.' This new White House reporting program strikes at the heart of the First Amendment and has no place in this important debate about health care." READ MORE...
On Wednesday I went to see my dentist (and noted author of children's books), Dr. Joe Lester in Conyers, Georgia to be evaluated for dental implants. While there, I also had two teeth extracted. It was while he was pulling my teeth that Dr. Lester (who is a huge Obama supporter) learned that I was the same Sandra Rose who owns the blog that he banned everyone in his office from reading.
Dr. Lester is for ObamaCare, and of course, I'm against it. Shout out to Lester Dental Group staffers KiKi, Kenyatta and Tanika, who bring their laptops to work daily so they can still read my blog despite the fact that Dr. Lester banned my blog!
Here's a poignant letter that Dr. Lester wrote about his son-in-law, Mike (pictured below with his wife), who was diagnosed with cancer. Dr. Lester doesn't think Obama received the letter, so I decided to post it in the hopes that someone in Washington reads this letter from a doctor who is working in the trenches with patients who don't have insurance.
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Dear Mr. President,
I hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. I know that you are a very busy man so I’ll make this brief. I’d like to encourage you to keep up the good fight for universal health care coverage for the average citizen of this country. I am a healthcare provider who often hears from his patients how difficult it is for them to afford healthcare. I am also part of a family who is struggling with inadequate health care coverage. Last month, I lost a dear aunt to a two-year fight against breast cancer at age 52, and now my 42-year-old son-in-law is fighting lung cancer that has metastasized to his brain. The bill for his brain surgery alone, at Emory Hospital here in Atlanta, was well over $100,000. Over the last two years, his medical bills have quickly approached a half-million dollars.
Former prison camp inmates Euna Lee, 36, and Laura Ling, 32, couldn't contain their emotions after touching down in California this morning. The women looked emaciated and frail as they descended the steps of a private jet and embraced their loved ones.
Lee and Ling were captured by the North Koreans at the N. Korean border back in March. The women were charged with entering the country illegally and other "hostile acts" against the government. They were convicted and sentenced to 12 years hard labor at a prison camp where prisoners routinely die of starvation. The ones who survive the grueling 12-hour work days subsist on a ration of corn and water daily.
Contrary to popular belief, the decision to free the journalists was already a done deal by the time former president Bill Clinton arrived in N. Korea on a private jet for a round of humiliating photo ops.
Hollywood film producer Stephen Bing, a close friend of Bill Clinton's, sent his private jet to fly the women back home. Lee and Ling hadn't seen their families in 4 months. Ling is the sister of CNN correspondent and former 'The View' host Lisa Ling, and Lee has a 4-year-old daughter.

Narcissist Barack Obama didn't bother to join in the joyous homecoming celebration.
Thanks to loyal reader Geoffrey for sending this article by Thomas Lifson of AmericanThinker.com. The image was published on the official White House blog following the pointless "beer summit" photo op last week at the White House. It depicts a narcissist so wrapped up in himself that he is totally oblivious to the needs of others around him.
Obama's revealing body language
By Thomas Lifson
This picture truly is worth at least a thousand words.
I am stunned that the official White House Blog published this picture and that it is in the public domain. The body language is most revealing.
Sergeant Crowley, the sole class act in this trio, helps the handicapped Professor Gates down the stairs, while Barack Obama, heedless of the infirmities of his friend and fellow victim of self-defined racial profiling, strides ahead on his own. So who is compassionate? And who is so self-involved and arrogant that he is oblivious?
In my own dealings with the wealthy and powerful, I have always found that the way to quickly capture the moral essence of a person is to watch how they treat those who are less powerful. Do they understand that the others are also human beings with feelings? Especially when they think nobody is looking.
In a surprising show of human decency and compassion, North Korea's madman Kim Jong-Il granted a special pardon to broadcast journalists Laura Ling, left, and Euna Lee. Ling is the sister of former 'View' host Lisa Ling.
The journalists were captured by the N. Koreans at the border between N. Korea and S. Korea back in March. They were convicted of espionage and sentenced to 12 years of hard labor in a brutal prison camp where starving prisoners are forced to subsist on a meal of corn and water daily.
The women were working as television reporters for former Vice President Al Gore's Current TV when they were captured. It was assumed that Gore would fly to N. Korea to negotiate their release. But Gore never commented publicly on the case.
Ling and Lee will fly back to the United States on former president Bill Clinton's private jet today. Clinton, who works as a special envoy to the White House, arrived in N. Korea yesterday.
His visit was not a factor in Jong-Il's decision to pardon the journalists. But you know Barack Obama will take credit for helping to win their release anyway.
Remember those Barack Obama 'Joker' posters I told you about earlier? Well, some enterprising anti-socialists have printed up t-shirts, ball caps, mugs, and bumper stickers with the image and made them available for sale online.
The White House isn't too happy about this, but fortunately we still live in a country where free enterprise and capitalism thrives without interference from the government (at least not yet).
I've already placed my order. Thanks to loyal reader Lizbeth for the link!
I wish I could take my vote back. If my got darn check is effected by this new healthcare mess I will not be voting for him again. I don’t understand if I’m already paying out the woo hoo for health care does it now have to be taxed. Liar!!! You said you wouldn’t tax the poor… I hope the whole plan falls thru.
Sandrarose.com, reforming Kool Aid drinkers one day at a time!
The nation's 44th president Barack Hussein Obama turned 48 today. Obama was born in either Kenya, Indonesia or Hawaii (no one knows for sure) on August 4, 1961. We here at Sandrarose.com would like to extend Happy Birthday wishes to the president.
Thanks to loyal reader Kendra for the motivational art!
No one knows who the artist is, but the Obama 'Joker' posters first originated in L.A. back in April during the hoopla over the stimulus bailout.
The posters (inspired by Heath Ledger's Joker character in 'The Dark Knight') are showing up in the most unlikeliest places. According to a local CBS affiliate, a different version of the poster was plastered on the outside of "The Big Chicken" over the weekend in Marietta, Georgia.
Naturally, the left wing liberal milquetoast lapdog media are howling in protest over the Obama 'Joker' posters, but they'll soon roll over and play dead again.
Democratic House Representative Lloyd Doggett of Austin, Texas was besieged by constituents outside a grocery store over the weekend. Doggett, who plans to vote for Obama's Universal Health Care Reform, tried to talk with the people who helped put him in office, but he was shouted down by chants of "Just say no!"
As Doggett got into his car to leave, the car crowd surrounded the vehicle and wouldn't allow his driver to get out of the parking lot. All the while the crowd chanted "Just say no!"
Similar events are occurring with frequency outside the offices of Democrats in other cities. Americans are fed up with the Obama administration's attempts to force Socialism down their throats.
One woman held up a sign that read "NO GOVT. COUNSELOR IN MY HOME!" -- alluding to the provision in the health care reform bill that calls for a government counselor to visit patients over 50-years-old and counsel them on "end of life" options (euthanasia) as an alternative to expensive surgery or treatments that could prolong their lives.
It's helpful to note that Democrats like Doggett and their families will not have to give up their insurance coverage to join ObamaCare as Americans will be forced to do.
Barack Obama is rapidly becoming the most hated president in recent history as posters of his likeness covered in clown makeup are popping up all over Los Angeles.
Obama's 'Cash 4 Clunkers' rebate program aims to take your clunker off your hands in exchange for $3,500 - $4,500 cash towards a newer more gas-efficient auto -- as long as your clunker doesn't get 18 miles to the gallon. But here's the twist, the engines in these so-called 'clunkers' must be destroyed on the lot, by the dealer, before the government will pay the dealers.
So what's occurring all around the country is that perfectly good cars that were driven to school, to the grocery store and to doctor's appointments yesterday are being destroyed today.
Here's a video documenting the destruction of a late model Volvo's perfectly good engine. The dealer drains the oil and antifreeze from the Volvo, then a sodium silicate solution is poured into the engine. As the engine is revved, the solution solidifies into glass and the engine seizes up and blows.
As you watch this video, hopefully you're not one of those moms who could use a perfectly good running car to take your kids to school, or to a doctor's appointment. And I hope you don't run a charitable organization that could have used that Volvo as a donation or a tax write off.
If you're thinking this is a great incentive to get junk cars off the road, remember that, as with all government programs, this one also has the potential for abuse.
I hear that used car dealerships which normally sell cars for under $4,500 are now busy destroying the engines on those cars and turning the paperwork in to the government for reimbursement. Don't believe me? Try buying a used car for under $4,500 anywhere in the city.
Just an example of more wastefulness courtesy of the Obama administration that we will end up paying for in the long run.
As MM points out, the Obama administration's ambitious 'Cash for Clunkers' federal rebate program failed after only 3 days.
It wasn't just the fact that the program ran out of money to buy back junk cars in exchange for gas efficient ones in only 3 days -- it's worse than that. The truth is, the Obama administration doesn't have a clue what they're doing.
The cash ran out because there was a woeful lack of planning, budgeting and strategizing on the part of the administration. Once again we get excuses from the White House as to why their bills or programs just don't work:
The Obama administration is attempting to use the fact that the program was popular with consumers as evidence that it was a “success,” but that only serves as evidence of government incompetence. Unfortunately for Obama & Company, many people are aware that sometimes “too successful” is far more expensive than “didn’t work at all.” READ MORE...
So add the 'Cash for Clunkers' program to the growing heap of failures for the Obama administration. And then try to imagine what ObamaCare will be like if it passes.
A car dealer responds to this post after the break...Read more »
Last night I spent the better part of an hour scouring blogs and news gathering websites for images of Barack Hussein Obama consuming beer at the so-called "beer summit" yesterday. Needless to say, I couldn't find any. Oh, there were plenty of pics of Obama leaning back in his lawn chair (supposedly after a hard day's work) nursing a mug of Bud Light sitting on the table in front of him. But no pics of him actually downing a cold one.
That's odd... Was Sergeant James Crowley the only one captured on film hoisting a mug of suds to his lips during the "beer summit"? Was that the intended outcome -- to get images of the cop drinking beer, but not the president, the vice president Joe Biden, or the race baiting Harvard professor Henry Louis "Skip" Gates, Jr. whose loose lips sparked a firestorm of race debates in this country?
Maybe Obama's handlers didn't want to see any more images like this one. Maybe they reminded O that it isn't cool or presidential to be photographed in public sipping brew. Not when teenagers are still drinking and driving and killing themselves at alarming rates. Best to do all his swigging behind closed doors like George Bush did.
Barack Obama will go down in history as the least popular president to ever occupy the White House. Today Obama sat down for a beer with his pal, race baiter Henry Louis "Skip" Gates and the white officer who arrested Gates two weeks ago. Is this what you voted him in office for? To promote alcoholism?
Everyone I spoke with said they would have refused Obama's invitation to sit down for a beer after referring to them as stupid. One friend told me that Obama's photo ops are more important to him than promoting abstinence and responsibility.
Remember John Holdren, the Harvard professor appointed by Barack Obama to be his "science adviser"? I told you earlier about his book Ecoscience that advocates population control and forced abortions. Well, it turns out Holdren has even more radical views on life than I originally thought.
In 1973, Holdren wrote another book called “Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions” in which he says newborn babies, if given the right "social experiences" after birth, "will ultimately develop into a human being." I had to stop typing long enough to laugh out loud! THIS is the guy that Obama wants advising him on science when he doesn't even know when human life begins?
Are all Harvard professors kooky like Holdren and Skip Gates? Unlike Skip Gates, Holdren is now in control of this country's science policies!
The more I read about this nut job Holdren, the more he begins to sound like Hitler, who also didn't think a segment of society was human and set about solving his "social problems" by building concentration camps.
A Boston cop might lose his job after he vented his frustration toward Harvard professor Henry Louis "Skip" Gates, Jr, in an email.
Gates created a national firestorm of controversy when he was arrested after hurling racist accusations at a white police officer who was investigating a possible break-in at Gates's Harvard-owned residence in Boston.
Both Gates and Sergeant James Crowley have threatened to file lawsuits against each other.
A Boston police officer was placed on administrative leave after he allegedly used a racial slur when referring to Henry Louis Gates Jr.
In a mass e-mail, Officer Justin Barrett, 36, called Gates a "jungle monkey," according to Elaine Driscoll, a spokeswoman for the Boston Police Department.
Gates, a black Harvard scholar, was arrested at his home earlier this month on a disorderly conduct charge after he tried to budge open the door of his Cambridge home.
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis found out about the e-mail on Tuesday and immediately stripped Barrett of his gun and badge, Driscoll said. The e-mail was sent anonymously to his Barrett's fellow guard members and the Boston Globe.
Once again, Barack Hussein Obama's personal physician has spoken out against Obama's faulty Universal health Care Reform.
Dr. David Scheiner, 70, Chicago-based physician who treated Obama for more than 20 years, said Obama's vision is bound to failure.
"I look at his program and I can't see how it's going to work," Scheiner told the Huffington Post. "He has no cost control. There would be no effective cost control in his program. The [Congressional Budget Office] said it's going be incredibly expensive ... and the thing that I really am worried about is, if it is the failure that I think it would be, then health reform will be set back a long, long time."
Scheiner told HuffPo he prefers a more progressive approach to health care reform (such as expanding Medicare/Medicaid to cover more Americans). "His pragmatism is what is overwhelming him," said Scheiner.
Barack Hussein Obama was dissed majorly by the Russians during his trip to Russia a couple of weeks ago. It seems the Russians aren't as impressed with Obama as he is, and they demonstrated their displeasure by refusing to shake his hand.
But did we hear a peep about this presidential snub in the pro-Obama left wing news media? I didn't. But thanks to the magic of video, the snub is preserved in posterity forever.
If a network talk show host can be described as an unabashed attention whore, that would be Glenn Beck. Beck stuck his foot in his mouth when he referred to Barack Hussein Obama as a racist on Fox and Friends yesterday. His outburst makes no sense when you consider that Obama is half white and probably hates his black side more than he does the white one.
Beck will probably have to answer to Fox network brass for putting them in the uncomfortable position of having to distance themselves from his remarks. But don't expect Beck to be fired or even reprimanded any time soon. Beck has attracted millions of viewers to his show on Fox News since he made the jump from CNN in January. By the way, pro-Obama CNN sits at the bottom of the network news rankings.
I'm a regular visitor to your website and usually I don't agree with what you write.. .especially about Beyonce:-)
But, lately I have opened my eyes to what's really going on with the Obama administration. Yes, I have stopped drinking the kool aid:-). I remember last year I couldn't wait to vote for him and did everything I could to get him in the office. I volunteered many weekends for his cause because I did believe he was the change we needed.
Well, here I am today wondering why people easily forget that the same rule that applied in the past still exist today just with a black face on it.
He's not to blame but people really need to see who is behind the curtain pulling his strings. I am no longer voting for either party because it really don't matter.
Oh by the way, I am originally from Kenya but a citizen of the U.S... so please let your readers know that I'm not an old white lady upset because he is black.
I was on the side of Gates, but after reading your blog and both articles it is clear to me that Gates is an opportunist to put it lightly. I have no doubt that he escalated the situation with the officer in order to make a point and get some attention.
He'll probably turn this into a money making opportunity in the form of a book or some racial profiling documentary.
Anyway thanks again for putting a different perspective out there.
Yesterday, loyal reader pointhimout left this comment under one of my Obama posts:
My understanding is the underlying purpose of this obamacare is population control.
She's right, and that means she's doing her research (unlike you Kool Aide drinkers). It's right there in the 1,000 page House version of the Health Care Reform bill. Obamacare bureaucrats will make sound medical decisions for all Americans -- not medical personnel, but government bureaucrats.
Someone once said: The true measure of a man can be found by who they associate themselves with.
John Holdren, Barack Obama's "Science Czar" co-wrote a book about 30 years ago advocating forced abortions and mass sterilizations as a form of population control. The book is called Ecoscience and you can find it on Amazon.com. This guy Holdren is one of the bureaucrats who will make medical decisions for us if ObamaCare passes.
Contained within the book Ecoscience are numerous radical references to population control:
Forcibly and unknowingly sterilizing the entire population by adding infertility drugs to the nation’s water and food supply.
Forcibly removing babies from "undesirables" and putting them up for adoption
Legalizing “compulsory abortions,” ie forced abortions carried out against the will of the pregnant women, as is already common place in Communist China
Permanently sterilizing people who the authorities deem have already had too many children or who have contributed to “general social deterioration”. (that would be YOU hoodrats)
And here's a direct quote form the book:
“Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”
Once the blogs got hold of Holdren's book, the White House immediately released a statement from Holdren denying that he still embraces those ideals.
Do you believe Holdren and the White House denials? These are the facts: Holdren co-wrote the book Ecoscience. He studied the practice of Eugenics (improving the population through controlled breeding). You can find Ecoscienceon Amazon.com.
Do you really believe that Holdren no longer embraces those population control ideals because he now works for the Obama administration?
Please take the time to read the health care reform bill for yourself before Obama rams it through Congress.
Yesterday, Cambridge police released the tapes of the 911 call that set up the confrontation between a Harvard professor and a cop that made national headlines.
Contrary to media reports, the caller did not mention the race of the two men that a neighbor thought she saw breaking into professor Henry Louis "Skip" Gates' Harvard-owned house on July 16. She also didn't mention the word "backpacks" during the call.
Most of you probably never would have heard about this local matter if Barack Obama had not decided to make a racial issue out of it without knowing any of the facts.
The police reports posted on SmokingGun.com clearly shows a belligerent, pompous Skip Gates verbally abusing Sgt. James Crowley for doing his job. "Do You know who I am?" Gates shouted when Crowley asked to see his ID to prove he resided at that address.
When Sgt. Crowley informed Gates that he was investigating a possible break-in at that address, Gates asked, "Why, because I'm a black man in America?" Gates also demanded to know if Sgt. Crowley knew who he was messing with. Witnesses would later say it was almost as if Gates wanted to be arrested.
Gates heaped verbal abuse on Sgt. Crowley, calling him a racist for doing his job. Gates even hurled an insult at Sgt. Crowley's mother as he followed the officer outside and onto the porch. If anyone was exhibiting racist behavior it was Gates.
Obama didn't know any of these facts before sticking his foot in his mouth by referring to the Cambridge police as "acting stupidly."
Maybe Gates prefers that police not investigate any more calls of possible break-ins at at his home.
