Obama's Beer Summit Begins

7/30/2009 7:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In an attempt to calm racial tensions, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden threw back beers with Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and the man who arrested him -- Police Sergeant James Crowley -- near the Oval Office today.

Obama's Beer Summit

A national debate on racial profiling occurred after Crowley arrested Gates for disorderly conduct during a burglary investigation at the professor's home.

But here's the important part -- the respective beers each man drank:

Obama
-- Bud Light
Biden -- Bucklers
Gates -- Sam Adams Light
Crowley -- Blue Moon

this is awful : the Police was doing his job and just because the guy knows Obama means he has special privileges. Now he can blame a white society........ I agrees this is wrong minded, nepotistic and immature solution. It makes the Police look like a victim when the guy obviously has a big grudge against authority and being told what to do by anyone. The see the Police as white. Which they are not.

they should have electred Hillary : this is all kinds of wrong : so now black people can shout down and harass Police.......or are privileges extended to this guy ? so everyone cannot be arrested ? THE POLICE ARE DOING THEIR JOB, AND OBAMA IS MAKING IT A PERSONAL/RACIST ISSUE, which it wasnt.

Yeah the cop was doing his job: arresting people for being in their own homes.

Do you idiots EVER think for yourselves? All the comments here parrot the vile hate spewers Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. (None of whom graduated from college). Are you people too lazy to even think up different words? Apparently.

I love our President and our country. America: love it or leave it!
