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

up and inviting a white officer and a racist professor to drink beer with him so it can be on national tv to make him look like a problem solver,hes mistaken.He doesnt even drink beer,and neither does the nutty proffessor.I cant wait for election time so i can throw my 2 cents in the ballot to remove this parasitic,racist,excuse of a dictator(i mean president) out of office.

I Have To Say . . .    

What the heck is Obama doing getting involved in this ? Talk about reverse discrimination - do you think anyone would be having a beer with the President if it had been a policeman of color and a caucasian blue collar ? Hey, wait, that happens every day....

Ning Ning...every time Obama makes an ass out of himself and accidentally proves how inept he is, does not mean you have to point out a damn thing about Bush....when Bush is the subject, go for it....but get over pointing to him every time Obama screws up....and you will have lots of practice because Obama isn't done screwing up yet
