Obama's Teachable Moment

GIBBS: About an ongoing discussion racial issues in this country, I think because of who he is as president and because its obvious these issues are still very raw in our society, I think he believes that he can help bring these type of teachable moments to the forefront, allow our dialogue to take over and communicate better with each other and make society a little bit better because of it.
The tape of the 911 call was released. Something I'm sure President Obama was hoping wouldn't happen, and whose effect he wished to deflect through charm and beer diplomacy. But unless professor Gates apologizes and president Obama apologizes, the teachable moment is lost to them. And progress in race relations will be retarded, thanks to these two knee-jerkers.

Apparently Crowley, Gates, and the "post-racial" president Obama will have their beer at the White House, 6am Thursday. Maybe they can invite Whalen as well, given how her name's been slandered through the mud with charges of racism.

So what was the teachable moment, here? Anyone? I want to hear what you, the reader, learned from all this.

(Don't forget to calibrate your words carefully, now....)

I think the thing I learned here is that you can take the man out of Rev Wright's church but you can't take Rev Wright's church out of the man.

I learned that no good turn (investigating a possible break-in) goes unpunished when black elitists are involved. Re-education Camp Lite for Sgt. Crowley over beer will probably spoil Crowley's future appreciation for any brewski in the future...

Let's hope that NObama learned to keep his flytrap closed when he has no clue what went on. That might be a good start.
