No Apology from a weak, spineless president

Obama's inability to acknowledge his thoughtless, racist remark regarding the arrest of prof. Gates is foreshadowed in his own writings in his book Dreams of My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance. In it he describes how you can get away with almost anything by by smiling and being polite to "whitey". A simple apology would to Officer Crowley would have been appropriate and gone a long way to building Obama's stature in office. As it is now, he's no more than a dark version of a southern racist slogging down a cheap beer and laughing about how he got away with something. What a shame.
