Obama has many great accomplishments.

Obama's greatest accomplishment is how he brough racial harmony to Cambridge, Mass. after the arrest of esteemed black Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates, by a racist cop.

Will this be Obama's legacy?

Yeah, but that's a pretty tenuous link to "crediting" Obama with racial harmony at Cambridge and calling it his "greatest accomplishment," isn't it?

Racist cop? Why do you idiots just throw out lies?

Obama, Mr. I dont have all the facts, but the police acted stupidly....on national television. Obama deserves nothing positive for saying what he did.

The federal government had no business whatsoever in getting involved or commenting on what was strickly a local matter. Obama should have kept his trap shut and stayed out of it. From local sources, Gates was a smart ass that assumed that his lofty status as a Harvard prof and prominent liberal gave him immunity from cooperating with a police officer performing the duties of his job.
