Again HE took sides from the very begining!!! He even admitted on national television he did not know all of the facts AND he still took sides with Prof. Gates! Bil Cosby said he was SHOCKED by the presidents statements.

Everyone agrees that he shouldnt have said "stupidly" and taken sides. But there it was, done, he said it. So what should he have done next? If he'd gone on TV it would have made everything worse. I think the beer summit with just the three people involved was the best possible resolution.
