Remember this from Wed. July 22, 2009:
..and a mere 3 hours later Barack Obama pulls the race card at his healthcare reform infomercial.
On 7.25.09, I wrote a piece called Rush Limbaugh Nails It! where I stated this:
Many of us have known for a very long time that nothing, and I mean NOTHING is done by accident with this administration. Y’all have realized by now that every single event surrounding this “residency” is planned, orchestrated, rehearsed, and every possible contingency is taken into account before the event is allowed to happen. You know this, right?
At least five times today I stated that the ‘the police acted stupidly’ comment made by Bambi on Wednesday night was so over the top that it had to be an actual planned event with the distinct possibility that it was a distract and deflect measure. That may not be the only reason, but it is the usual one with the Bambi think tank inside the WH. He knew exactly what he was going to say if he had to walk it back, and he gets an “F” for his apology. He never meant to apologize. Put this whole situation into perspective; how long did it take Barack Obama to make mention of the killing of Private William Long by the islamic jihadist?
The timeline of the Gates arrest, the surrounding fiasco with the resident pulling the race card, and the most likely reason Bambi created a media storm?
- Thursday, July 16th, 2009: Henry Gates arrested.
- Monday, July 20th, 2009: The first reports of the arrest hit the MSM news.
- Wednesday, July 22, 2009: Glenn Beck previews House of Represenatives’ Committee on Oversight and Government Reform’s report “Is ACORN Intentionally Structured As a Criminal Enterprise?”
- Wednesday, July 22, 2009: Barack Obama pulls the race card during his health care infomercial.
- Thursday, July 23, 2009: Acorn report is released to the public.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday: What is the MSM talking about? Henry Gates and the Cambridge police – NOT the Acorn Report. Is it possible the resident knew the exact details of the police report filed 6 days earlier?
Will ACORN be Obama’s Achilles Heel?
H/T to MsPlacedDem for saying just the right thing to make the pieces fall into place.
UPDATE: H/T Redstate:
Robert Gibbs on FNS
On today’s Fox News Sunday, presidential press secretary Robert Gibbs admitted President Obama had been prepared to answer questions about the Henry Louis Gates arrest at his press conference last week. Bret Baier, filling in for regular host Chris Wallace, asked Gibbs, “Before Wednesday’s news conference, did you prepare [the president] for a question about Henry Gates’s arrest in Cambridge?”
“Well, look,” said Gibbs, “Let’s just say it’s safe to say we went over a whole lot of topics that we thought might come up, and certainly this was a topic that was, has been in the news . . .” He then went on to try to un-ring the bell by repeating the line that the president “hadn’t calibrated his words well,” and blah, blah, blah, beer at the White House, blah, blah, blah.
So now we know that President Obama didn’t properly “calculate” his words about the Cambridge police “acting stupidly” even after being prepared for such a question in advance. Thus is revealed the president’s tone deafness in failing to anticipate the backlash such an answer might provoke.
