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

8. This is the stupidest thing Ive ever heard of..WTF is a beer -summit??lol..If Obama thinks for a sec. that throwing a picnic table 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

THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!! How have we come to this as a country. What the BLEEP is Obama doing? This is not Presidential in anyway. He should not be wasting precious time on this issue.... they should be able to work whatever this crap is all about out. This whole thing gets under my skin. Gates is racest and the cop p.o'd him and he flipped. Big deal people. I grew up where you judged someone by their moral charecter

58. 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

Obama was stupid for opening his mouth before he got his facts straight. I hate stupid people. It cracks me up everytime when things don't go right for Blacks they have to bring race in to it. I had to crack up at Gates. Because when the 911 tapes were released there was nothing on it about race. What a dumb azz Gates was. Just shows that Gates is nothing but a F**king Lair. Obama didn't have has telepromter in front of him. Your ratings are going down stupid perz. Obama will only be a one term prez. This is what happens when you bring race into everything. OBAMA SUCKS BIG TIME............

Obama is "STUPIDLY" sitting there thinking he is smoothing over a huge mistake HE MADE...he let his own RACIST MINDSET out for all to hear and now he "thinks" he can fix it. Now that is STUPID because I am on to him and so are other people with reason and sense.

Thanx Mr President you are a man at least you can admit when you are wrong something we all need to take heed to whoever you are when you make a mistake unlike the last idiot we had as a President glad to see that you are willing to say you made a mistake and try to fix the problem how many of us can say the same.Keep up the good work you cant satisfy everyone but at least youre doing something in good faith unlike the last idiot that held office we as ppl will always have something to complain about because thats the flesh of being human but it takes a real man to be a man who can say the same those who are quick to judge are usually the ones that have all the skeletons in the closet(Rush Limbaugh) the pill headed Republican dumb azz!!!!!!!!!
