It's just like going all the way back to the Cambridge incident, where [Obama] sputtered off that the officers acted 'stupidly.' After the 'beer summit,' you know, he made comments that were appropriate, but it's usually the first comment after the Dallas situation, rather than immediately recognizing it as a domestic terrorist act, regardless of whether or not it was a known terrorist group... but, in contrast to that, on the Sterling situation in Baton Rouge, and on the incident in Minnesota, he had no caution that we wait for a thorough and complete investigation.
