Obama probably backed down for his and Biden’s political/personal gains more than anything else.
Remember when Obama walked back his harsher comments as a “teachable moment”, Biden and he still had another general election to win.
Fear of losing the endorsements of the police unions never materialized in 2012 campaign either.
Obama clearly knew blasting this one isolated officer’s misdeeds was violating Gates 1st amendment rights and grossly improper (as he was initially quoted condemning the officer).
Instead Joe and him have beers with the officer…
One thing we see on honesty with Biden (topic of this thread) is how anti-police he really is.
Data supports in overwhelming fashion most cops are good and do their jobs extremely well.
Yet, Biden these days along with many other of the elected officials on the left will not stand up for their residents against these non-peaceful people who commit heinous-illegal acts against the police-people in general.
Biden’s criticism of police made it easier for Trump in being endorsed by the vast majority of law enforcement unions across America this coming November.
I like how some people are still trying to gaslight us to try and rehabilitate Trumps “Nazis are good people” comments. We watched it live. I saw the horror on the faces of the Fox News hosts when he said it. I saw “His Generals” sinking into themselves as he said it. Everyone knew he had ****ed up. Stop trying to parse and explain it away, we all saw it live.
Yeah , for some reason they keep forgetting to mention that tidbit. That the event was organized specifically to unite white supremacy groups in an effort to bring awareness to the goal of a white America.
