Helene Cooper Defends Obama Accusing Cambridge Police of Acting ‘Stupidly’ (NewsBusters)

During a panel discussion on Meet the Press, New York Times reporter Helene Cooper rehashed President Obama’s infamous scolding of the Cambridge police and said that Obama accusing them of acting “stupidly” “made sense to me.”  In response to Chuck Todd noting that Obama aides say the president talks about gun control more than race relations because guns are “believe it or not, less polarizing” Cooper insisted that she doesn't “necessarily think that Obama has problems talking about race. I think that he has been jumped on a lot whenever he has in the past.”
