Beer Summit Reactions from Detroit Bars

Friday, July 31, 2009

President Obama, Sgt. James Crowley and Henry Louis Gates Jr. met for a long anticipated beer last night outside the Oval Office. The Takeaway covered reactions to this from bar-goers in Boston and now talks with Detroit News Reporter Charlie LeDuff about what people said in the bars in Detroit.

"We've got a professor with an over-inflated opinion of himself, a cop who's a bigot, a president who shouldn't have put his foot in it, and in the end we're in the same place we were yesterday."

I haven't heard anything on what they actually talked about over their beers. How can you decide whether it has meaning without knowing what they all said?

I don't like this whole idea of a "takeaway", a one liner that some how sums it all up.
