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

You need to educate yourself sweetheart, you sound incredibly ignorant. 12 years of Bushs? You realize we had the God awful pervert Billy boy Clinton for 8 years don't you? The same clown that allowed Bin Laden to roam around free and plan and execute 9/11. The only hate we've experienced have been from the evil, cold-hearted, anti-American liberals like you that attacked our nation and President for the past 8 years. This is a taste of your own medicine hun. Don't feel too good, does it? And unlike you and your bashing of Bush, our bashing of Obama is actually justified. He's destroying the economy, he's killing jobs by the minute, he's ruined our auto industry and soon will destroy our healthcare, and a huge racist to boot. You people with your stupidity and ignorance are the enemy. Wake up!!

As time moves on, Mr. Obama is proving himself to be alot less palatible and messianic than his followers thought. IT was a stupid photo op of a stupid idea. NOBODY at that table wanted to be there other than Mr. Obama for the spotlight. As his tenure continues, I grow more and more disgusted with his vision of America.

"After he loses his reelection bid in 3 and a half years by a landslide, it will take this nation decades to ever decide to elect another black for President. "

I didn't vote for Mr. Obama, but not because he is black, half black whatever. I would vote in a heartbeat for a black man who had foresight, told the truth, didn't try to ram unnecessary things down our throats and governed with fairness. Being a resident of Hawaii myself, I was appalled at the "roll over and scratch my belly" attitude of my fellow Hawaiian citizens because he was born here, not the issues, not the platform, not the back story of his experience, no, only the popularity. They got what they wanted and now are reaping the unbenefit.

Kandi you need to educate yourself....did you not watch the election coverage at all??? You are really retarded and I'm sorry to call names but I have to tell you that these were the issuses that were VOTED ON HONEY! Jobs, healthcare, the auto industry...your boy Bush already had that messed up, we're just waiting on some action for it to get better...

I'm going to give him at least until January (one full year) before I begin to pass judgement, as I've said you can't fix something in 8 MONTHS that has been done over 8 YEARS

LOL!! Spin, deflect, spin, deflect, keep it up sweetheart!!! Every time Obama opened his mouth during the campaign he lied. He lied about not raising taxes on everyone, he lied about Gitmo, he lied about creating millions of new jobs, he lied about fixing the economy, he lied about not being a freakin' Socialist. All the "issues" you claim that were voted on have proven to be a huge failure and have gotten DRASTICALLY worse under his disgraced leadership. He said he could part the seas and walk on water for cryin' out loud!!!! Why should the chosen one, the SAVIOR, need a year to do anything? At the rate he's going in a year he would have completely bankrupted this country and put everybody out of work!!! Seriously hun, read some books and stop getting your "news" from MSNBC and Bill Maher. Use your brain for once. It might hurt at first but after time you'll enjoy it :)

It's weird how all of Obama's friends are fellow racist like he is. I guess racists tend to stick together.

MLK is turning over in his grave. Obama has single handedly set blacks back 100 years.

There's some serious questions if in fact he was born there. This is the most secretive administration the country has ever known. He's scared to release his birth certificate.

OBAMA IS PROVING THE REPUBLICANS RIGHT. HE JUST IS NOT PREPARED TO BE THE PRESIDENT. HE JUST DOESNT HAVE THE EXPERIENCE AND SADLY I THINK, EVEN HE, BOUGHT INTO HIS OWN "HOPE" CAMPAIGN.
YEAH HOPING IF ELECTED HE WOULD FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO. I SURE HOPE IN 3 1/2 YEARS SOMEONE GOOD REPUBLICAN, DEMOCRAT, GREEN PARTY -- JUST SOMEONE WHO CAN LEAD AND RUN THIS COUNTRY WILL BE VOTED IN,

LOL! Everything that you've just said had NOTHING to do with the fact that these issues you're blaming on Obama were the issues that were there BEFORE he was even in office. So why don't you take your own advice and use your brain, and stop watching Fox news, you obviously have NO idea what the issues are.

Stay in your lane go debate on the "lady gaga vs. katy perry" issues Kandi that sounds like more of your speed.

I agree with you cmania. What is this world coming to? Never mind the bud lite. Take care of our country. It was none of Obama Mama's business to get involved in this situation. He made a big thing out of this. It was not a racist incident at all. This professor is another nut. The poor cop was doing his job. The professor should have thanked him and kept his mouth shut after that. He was the one that made nasty comments! Obama got involved because the professor is African American.

I saw this on the back window of a car recently, pretty much sums it up.

You don't see Obama stickers on cars going to work!
