Obama Creates A Lasting Peace? Crowley And Gates Spotted Together

Call it the Beer Summit 2.0.  Could it be that Obama is capable of creating a lasting peace with a couple of beers?  I am not too surprised by this; remember that photo of Crowley helping Gates down the stairs as Obama marched on towards the cameras?

Maybe, Obama plans to use a beer summit to get Al Queda and the Taliban to chill out in Afghanistan?


Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates and Cambridge police Sergeant James Crowley were spotted at a pub in Cambridge Wednesday night. 
The owner of "River Gods" told WBZ the two sat in a booth together and talked for about an hour. 
Over the summer, Crowley arrested Gates for disorderly conduct while responding to reports of a possible break-in at Gates' home. Gates accused the officer of racial profiling.
The incident led to a nation-wide debate over racial profiling and race relations, when President Barack Obama commented on the situation - coming to Gates' defense. All three men later sat at a table outside the White House in what became known as the 'beer summit.'

Remember as the 'beer summit' happened, there was discussion of possible future meetings.

Who knows, might be one of the very few things Obama gets right, no matter how wrong he was in the process of getting there.

Wow, Obama's feet are HUGE.

That is right, they did say they would have another beer together. Truth be told, I thought that might have been meaningless like when folks in LA say "let's do lunch".

ROTFLMAO! I never noticed that before.

Priceless! That one picture says it all!

BHO headed for the mics and cameras, to declare his concern for the downtrodden, while the Irish cop assists the older gentleman (who had publicly accused him of racism) down the stairs.
