James Crowley, "Skip" Gates...

...President McDreamy and a case of beer... I can see it now...

"Yo mama so fat, she authorized a $700 billion bailout of Dairy Queen."

A short time earlier from the Oval Office, Obama had done what his aides had been doing for days: lowering expectations.

“I noticed this has been called the ‘Beer Summit.’ It’s a clever term, but this is not a summit, guys,” Obama told reporters. “This is three folks having a drink at the end of the day, and hopefully giving people an opportunity to listen to each other. And that’s really all it is. This is not a university seminar.”


There’s been a political cost for Obama for the episode, stealing attention from his agenda and drawing negative public reviews on how he handled the matter.

At the time of the incident, Gates demanded an apology from Crowley and called him a “rogue policeman.” Obama said the Cambridge policed “acted stupidly” in arresting Gates when he had shown proof he was in his home. Crowley said that, while he supported the president, Obama was “way off base wading into a local issue without knowing all the facts.”
