How ridiculous, but the picture is worth a thousand words, etc., and encapsulates the story. This was orchestrated just like any other, but unlike lying to a bunch of soldiers under a 'mission accomplished' banner with his crotch in a sling, Obama decided to use this image toward peace and harmony (oops, did someone just say 'socialist'??) They also staggered the men's skin color around a round table, too, so they weren't 'segregated' on sides. Maybe they didn't want to invite the woman 911 caller because she would have thrown off the visual balance and invoked scary Latina Sotomayor!
    No, actually I heard that analysis on Countdown & Hardball. Zing!

    You don't have to be Lou Dobbs to see the obvious. The beer summit was first and foremost a PHOTO OP, so visually having a balance of two white men and two black men looked better. But if you think that's wrong then how do you explain Biden being there?

    I just read the cop and teh professor (sounds like a funny sitcom) hit it off at the beer summit and are going to a Red Sox game together. Interesting times. Maybe something good will come out of all this nonsense.
