Obama Should Listen to Bill Cosby: Keep Mouth Shut!

By John W. Lillpop

Recent events suggest that if there is a "Waterloo" moment for President Obama, it will be a direct result of his inexperience and unwise behavior.

Indeed, the president seems quite capable of "destroying my presidency" on his own, without help from Senator DeMint, other Republicans, or Blue Dog Democrats.

The latest evidence of that is the political firestorm caused by Obama's foolish comment about police stupidity in the arrest of Professor Gates. That unnecessary remark leads one to question not only Obama's constitutional eligibility to be president, but his qualifications in terms of judgment as well.

Is this fellow up to be being president of the United States? is a question being asked by people who were blinded by Obamamania just a few months ago.

Obama's faux pas has elicited strong words from people whom would normally be considered pro-Obama, such as celebrity Bill Cosby.

As reported as Csmonitor.com, in part:


"On a Boston radio program this morning, Bill Cosby suggested that President Obama spoke too soon on the controversial arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates.

“I’ve heard about five different reports [on the details of the arrest],” Cosby said on Boston’s WZLX. “If I’m the president of the United States, I don’t care how much pressure people want to put on it about race, I’m keeping my mouth shut.”

“I was shocked to hear the president making this kind of statement,” Cosby said."

Later in the day, Cosby backtracked somewhat by giving the president some leeway. Still, Cosby's words reveal just how out of touch President Obama is.

Bottom line: President Obama Should Heed Bill Cosby's Advise and Keep Mouth Shut!
