Oof: Head of Fraternal Order of Police says Obama ‘discussing tactics from Martha’s Vineyard is not helpful’

President Obama had some brief remarks today about the situation in Iraq as well as in Ferguson, Missouri. On the latter issue, Obama said Ferguson police should not be bullying journalists who are trying to do their jobs and should be more “open and transparent” (James Rosen and Lois Lerner’s emails unavailable for comment).

The executive director of the Fraternal Order of Police didn’t appreciate Obama’s guidance on the matter:

“I would contend that discussing police tactics from Martha’s Vineyard is not helpful to ultimately calming the situation,” director Jim Pasco said in an interview with The Hill.

“I think what he has to do as president and as a constitutional lawyer is remember that there is a process in the United States and the process is being followed, for good or for ill, by the police and by the county and by the city and by the prosecutors’ office,” Pasco added.

Pasco harkened back to 2009, when Obama criticized a Massachusetts police officer for arresting Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, when he was attempting to break into his own home. Obama said the officer had “acted stupidly.”

“That is one where the president spoke precipitously without all the facts,” Pasco said, adding that the current situation “is a much larger and more tragic incident.”

Ouch! No invitation to “POTUS Dance Party II” for that guy.

And if you bet that after President Obama finished his statement he could get to the golf course in under seven minutes, go to the cashier’s window and collect your winnings:
