“One of the things I learned as president is you represent the entire country. If you want to be president, you have to work for everyone.”
Almost a week after the "not guilty" verdict was handed down in the George Zimmerman trial for the killing of Trayvon Martin, and the lawlessness that has ensued, Obama had the opportunity today to show he indeed represented "the entire country." He could have been the "racial healer" he was hyped to have been back in 2008.
He did not. Instead, being the narcissist he is, Obama made it about himself and the fact that he is half black. (CNN)
In unscheduled and unusually personal remarks, President Barack Obama tried Friday to explain why African-Americans were upset about last week's acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin while lowering expectations for federal charges in the case.
"Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago," Obama told White House reporters in a surprise appearance at the daily briefing.
His remarks, which lasted about 20 minutes, escalated a nationwide debate on the verdict that has prompted protests, including some that turned violent.
Never mind that whites and Hispanics have been brutally attacked, all in the name of revenge for Trayvon Martin. Never mind the thuggery, the blocking of traffic (including some who needed to go to the hospital). The President of the United States gave you all the middle-finger and said he's standing with the race agitators. The so-called "Reverends" Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackass, and the other angry, divisive voices who has used race as a weapon to divide Americans.
Is this whom Obama wants to be compared to? A troubled teenager who adopted the "gangsta" lifestyle, smoked dope, was suspected of burglary, and had been suspended from school?
Obama has always been quick to call for civility when he could attack the Tea Party (after Tucson) or Rush Limbaugh. To his base, he just gives them a wink and a nod while pretending to be above the fray.
To think, this SOB has made this case more personal than the killing of four Americans by al-Queda terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. He won't tell us what he was doing the night of 9/11/12, nor why he and his Regime looked this nation in the eyes and lied to us about a video being the cause of that attack.
America deserved better than what they got from Obama today. Obama does not "transcend race," instead, he shows he learned well from his mentor, the racist "Reverend" Wright in the 20 years he spent in the pews of that bigoted "church." With Al Sharpton out in the streets with his bullhorn over the next couple of months, the last thing America needed was the alleged leader of this nation, as well as his fellow racist in Eric Holder, fanning the flames of racial division. Because should there be any bloodshed from protests seeking revenge for Trayvon Martin, Obama, Holder, as well as the Race Hustlers like Sharpton and Jackson, will have blood on their hands.
