President Obama in a press conference
Regarding my remarks about the arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr:   As President of the United States, I choose my words carefully.   I do.

Yesterday, I said that the Cambridge Police acted "stupidly" in arresting somebody when there was already proof he was in his own home. It's not like I actually called the police "stupid" - that would have been un-Presidential.

I could have calibrated those words differently and said instead that the police acted "idiotically" or perhaps "moronically" or even "like a bunch of imbeciles". However, I felt "stupidly" really nailed it.

Look, I may not know all the facts in this case, but I know what I said.

Unfortunately, my careful choice of words gave some the impression that I was somehow maligning the Cambridge Police Department.  How stupid can people be?

Nope, this is not the official website of The White House. It's a parody of  No person, department, or agency of the U.S. Government approved, endorsed, or authorized this site. No animals were harmed while making this website (except maybe that one time when I was a little late feeding my dog his dinner).
