Our snake oil salesman President is fanning racial flames right at the time he is commandeering a takeover of 1/6 of the US economy. It seems like the perfect distraction for his brainless followers and the media who serve him. The fact that Obama knows this "scholar" makes me think, 'how in the world could this story rise to prominence?' oh yeah, hmmm. The fact that Gates is apparently brilliant leads me to think maybe he knew exactly what he was doing?
