With the economy having been brought to its knees by the liberal application of his unsound policies, gasping for breath and wheezing out a feeble “enough” you would think Mr. Obama would have enough things to worry about which would keep him very, very busy.

Apparently this man cannot help himself. He has to meddle in everything. His latest adventure in unconventional presidential behavior is to play judge and jury at the Presidential podium, throwing down the race card in the process.

Reflecting on events leading to the arrest of Harvard’s Henry Louis Gates Jr. at his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, last week, Mr. Obama commented that a white police officer had acted “stupidly” in arresting him. The president didn’t take back his words, but he allowed that he understood the sergeant who made the arrest is an “outstanding police officer.”

Ignoring the fact that anyone in America can be arrested in their own home by any police officer who views their behavior as being disorderly, Mr. Obama said, “I have to say I am surprised by the controversy surrounding my statement,” Obama said in an interview with ABC News, “because I think it was a pretty straightforward comment that you probably don’t need to handcuff a guy, a middle-aged man who uses a cane, who’s in his own home.”

So, with the weight of America’s economy falling around him, what business does this president have making sideline judgments about the work of a police officer?

Here’s some advice Mr. Obama, just tend to the responsibilities of the office you hold for the time being and let the professional police officer do his job. While taking a look at things of late, I’d say you have enough things around you already to which you should be paying attention. Your behavior on this matter is very un-presidential.
