In response to yesterday's shooting at Fort Hood, President Obama had the following to say regarding public suspicions:
"We don't know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts."
Barack Obama sure has come a long way since July when he had the following to say regarding the arrest of his friend, Harvard Professor Henry Gates:
"I don’t know – not having been there and not seeing all the facts – what role race played in that, but I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two that he Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home."
Well done, Mr. President!
