Sanford, Florida (CNN) -- President Barack Obama spoke out Friday for the first time on the growing national controversy over the shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Florida, saying Friday that the incident requires national "soul-searching."
"When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids," Obama said. "

Should harm come to some innocent person as a result of this President’s shameless pandering, he should be impeached!
his son would look like bernardine dorn
Obuggery doing his best to cause social agitation and sedition.
“requires national “soul-searching.” “
Yeah, like why is violence the first and only reaction of far too many black kids to any perceived slight or threat.
Zimmerman says Martin attacked him. Evidence and witness testimony supports him.
Oh, and what the flock is that lying, commie, POS African imposter doing injecting himself in what should be a local investigation if not trying to stir up racial animosity?
Obuggery doing his best to cause social agitation and sedition.
Wow. Remember how Clinton used to insert himself into every story? Because he was a pathological narcissist?
Well now here’s Obama.
Perhaps if he gave a cr*p about white people he’d insert himself into the story of that old married couple who were brutally assaulted, tortured and killed a few days back. By a black kid.
To paraphrase another Freeper: ‘If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon, except with big ears and an even bigger a$$’
Obama goes around with a stir stick just like Jesse Jackson. What an awful thing he is doing.
Does Obama or anyone else even know what Trayvon looked like at the time of his death? All I see are what seem to be 4 or 5 year old photos of him, most often in a football uniform.
I really wonder what the family and media are trying to cover up by not releasing any recent photos? I strongly suspect he no longer resembled, the clean cut, baby faced 12 or 13 year old we see in the photos.
And how do we get to `Soulsearching’?
Why, on the Soul Train of course you silly billies!
“When I think about Obama, I think about diarrhea”
Obama is a community organizer (i guess, there's no real proof of that either). Agitation is the only thing he knows.
BTW, I read that they Obama'tized the kid. Everything, every record about him is now sealed, just like Obama.
To dispel this, someone would have to come forward with video of the actual confrontation.
I am looking for Dear Leader’s statement on the white boy in the Kansas City area who was set on fire by some of his loving classmates.....just waiting....soon I am sure.../s
Well, that cinches it! I just heard that three of the four republican candidates (not Ron Paul) said something stupid regarding this matter; thereby bypassing the opportunity to avoid looking bufoonish.
From Susie Fluke to Trayvon. Jeez, who dreams this stuff up?
Barack’s son would look like Jeremiah Wright.
Yeah, that's real subtle, isn't it?
What Obama has essentially done is accused himself of being a "lookist," and of caring more about this incident because he perceives a racial kinship with the dead teenager.
It's time for conservative to Fluke the Prez on this.
We need conservative media to band together like they did against Fluke and take an example like the one you've mentioned, forcing the Prez to comment on the heinousness of the black perpetrator.
This would be a perfect opportunity IMO.
Trust me, I am repulsed...pissed...that there is no media driven national outrage when a terrorist in our uniform shoots up our soldiers on American soil; when groups of young blacks thugs in Tennessee rape and murder a young white couple, doing unthinkable acts on both; when groups of young black thugs beat a white American Vet in the streets; set people on fire; flashmob local stores; on and on and on. I want payback bad.
Yet I cannot play in their game. I will not give the halfrican the reasons to do what he needs to do to stay in office. Nope...ain't gonna happen. Time will come for payback.
note how Obama parced his words.
The boy would LOOK like obama.
iow Obama is building up his “blackness chips”
there is no comment about how the boy would ACT or BEHAVE.
Except with Clinton, it was just to make him part of the story, because he was a narcissist. With Obama its something much darker. The movement behind Obama needs chaos to proceed to their next phase. See post #4, I think he knows where this is going.
Shameful that he doesn’t know the difference between acting like a community organizer (Sharpton, et al) vs. acting like a President.
Shameful that Mr. Obama inspires racism, divides people, and he himself acts in a racially charged manner. To quote him, I’d say he’s ‘acting stupidly’.
If Obama had a soul to search what would it look like?
The family resemblance would extend to Bracak Sr., yes?
Quite frankly, he looks like my grandsons. I’m waiting to hear from the grand jury.
Wandering around a place he doesn't belong, looking for a score. Suspended from school. A 6 foot 2 inch football player beating on a citizen who is trying to keep his neighborhood safe.
Sounds right to me.
Sharpton and his minions are doing little different than the White lynchings where it was always assumed the Black man was guilty and should be punished quickly by hanging. In this case the white guy is being lynched at least in the press without knowing any facts.
Travy just got his Darwin award. That's ALL!
R.I.P Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome.
You are now in the loving arms of your namesakes, Jesus Christ.
If obama had a son... he would look and act like a chocolate Rip Taylor.
Without reading its context, but well aware of the zeitgeist, it seems that this miserable excuse for a chief executive has outdone even his own self in racist demagoguery with a remark like that.
He’s really stoking the fires of hate. Meanwhile, Farrakhan is trying to start something. This is unbelievable. How I wish every murdered child had the President being so vocal. And let’s not forget about all the murdered babies Obama is okay with having killed.
The Sandra Fluke fiasco was played by Hussein for all it was worth. Now that it’s stale, Trayvon Martin is up next on the list. They will get some mileage out of this, but to execute the plan they need to conceal that the shooter was hispanic, and give people the impression it was an old white guy. Based on the media coverage it seems to be working.
Standard operating procedure for the left. Decisions must be based on how people look, not what they do.
“And, if I had a wife, she’d look like Chewbacca. Oh, wait, I do have a wife. Never mind.”
her butt must be hungry cause it sure is eating those pants
Hey Barry, If you had a son that looked like Trayvon, I would suggest a good divorce lawyer!
It may be that Obama just realized that this could be an issue to fire up part of his base (like the birth control mandate was a few weeks ago)...or maybe the media was encouraged by the White House to make it a major story.
It's sad that someone died, but the people who are trying to exploit this story don't care about the 99.9% of cases they can't make hay of.
Clinton tried to blame the Oklahoma City bombing on talk radio, presumably hoping to force Rush off the air. Some Democrats are trying to get Rush silenced now because of his comment about Sandra Fluke...and some are trying to make him somehow guilty in the Martin killing. I don’t think he is in any danger of being forced off the air—he survived 1995.
