Power Line - A Strategy, Not A Gaffe

It's hard to tell, sometimes, whether Gibbs's incoherence is deliberate. Often, I think it is; perhaps that's the case here. The "issue" that President Obama "has been concerned about" and that "communities and law enforcement work together" on is apparently racial profiling. The conversation that Obama intends to have with Gates and Crowley over a beer could get a little tense if Gates (and Obama?) think they are working on the issue of racial profiling, while Crowley thinks they are working on the issue of privileged people with connections in high places acting abusively toward police officers who are trying to do their jobs.
