GOP strategist George Fletcher was quoted
saying that Obama got
“really close to
losing the image he has as a post-racial president. For
a few days, the question for a lot of people became,
`Wait a minute. Is he the president of the United
States? Or is he just the
president of minorities?`”
Of course, as long as Henry Louis Gates keeps his mouth
a sure thing—there may be little more mileage the
GOP can get out of this particular story.
But, fortunately for the Republicans, Obama has
provided plenty of other fodder—for example the

Justice Department spokeswoman
Tracy Schmaler continues to give absolutely no
defense or justification for the decision beyond stating
that after a
"thorough review of the allegations and the evidence",
it was decided to dismiss the complaint.
For good measure she added:
"We are committed to vigorous enforcement of the laws
protecting anyone exercising his or her right to vote“.
