When you act stupidly ...

Obama's "They acted stupidly" has cost him some support and votes:

[CNN's DON] LEMON: And the president?

KING: It's unfortunate. I supported him. I voted for him. I will not again. I agree that I think it's admirable that he would speak on behalf of his friend, but he should have refused himself. He should have stepped back and he should have said, I support my friend, but I don't have all the facts. I won't weigh in yet.

And as for Barack Obama's invocation of the whole incident being a "teachable moment," I wonder if this 1996 Gates speech could be considered such. "Watermelon Fellowship?" Oh, and nice hand slap with Cornel West after dissing Clarence Thomas. Classy. And did he say -- GASP! -- the "N" word??

Elsewhere, this is what, despite his invocations of race, DE Libertarian's Steve Newton is really concerned about in this whole matter. And it's certainly a worthy concern.
