In an interview on Fox News, Sarah Palin said she thinks the presidents comments about Trayvon Martin were orchestrated, according to a report by Todd Starnes.
She called out President Obama saying he should not have jumped into the growing outrage over the shooting.
I think it was orchestrated, Palin said. Im going to get clobbered for even suggesting this, but it is what I believe.
The president addressed the shooting in the Rose Garden.
My main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. You know, if I had a son, hed look like Trayvon, Obama said. All of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves.
Obviously, this is a tragedy. I can only imagine what these parents are going through, Obama said. All of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how something like this has happened.
Palin said she was very, very surprised out of all the issues that are going on in our country today that the president would have taken a question about the Martin case.

Rick Scott responds to New Black Panther Party “bounty” on Trayvon Martin’s shooter
Another day, another twist in the Trayvon Martin case.
There’s now a potentially anti-white group called the “New Black Panther Party,” which is calling for the vigilante-style arrest of alleged vigilante-style shooter George Zimmerman. And, in response, Gov. Rick Scott has issued this written statement:
“We have taken steps to ensure that the investigation into the tragic death of Trayvon Martin is fair, measured and thorough. Justice is ill served when there is a rush to judgment. We are a nation of laws and we must let the legal system work. Talk of bounties and retribution has no place in this dialogue, and they compound tragedy with tragedy.”
Obama reads what is put in front of him, and does what he is told. Just like any good servant.
Hopefully no one will die because of this orchestration. If someone does, President DumbA$$ has lots of explaining to do.
She’s right. She knows this is just for votes.
The sooner the good people of the USA come to realize that the end game of POTUS Barack Hussein Obama is the destruction of the American economy, and.....more importantly, the destruction of the American nation!!! End of story, Period!!!! Ms. Palin is right on the money!!!
Instead of blaming it on race, blame it on the illegal drug industry.
“Shes right. She knows this is just for votes.”
Exactly. It is trying to get the base stirred up and go out and vote using the race card. Simple as that. He can’t run on his record.

In Trayvons case, (Parks & Crump) alerted the news media more quickly. They phoned the Rev. Al Sharpton almost instantly, and organized marches with local civil rights activists. They also started pressing for federal involvement and alleging a cover-up from the get-go.
In court, you have the jury, Crump says. Our job is to get the case to a jury. We need to fight first in the court of public opinion. The jury is the American people.
Someone Must Be Punished for Killing Trayvon Martin, Says Mom Sybrina Fulton

The now controversial killing of Trayvon garnered virtually no mainstream media attention in the days immediately after he was fatally shot, but that all changed when the teenagers parents decided to hire civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump and his law firm to get more answers on exactly how and why their son died.
They called me the same day they were notified that their son was dead, Crump told The Daily Beast. When I heard their unarmed teenage son was shot to death, I just knew thered be an arrest shortly. There wasnt an arrest 48 hours later, and then I knew wed have to take this outside of Sanford if we wanted justice.
Trayvons parents were told by the Sanford police that Zimmerman wasnt arrested in their sons death because the facts of the case did not dispute his claim of self-defense.
For Crump, taking the Trayvon Martin story outside of Sanford simply entailed dialing up a few well-placed friends such as the Rev. Al Sharpton. Crump worked closely with the civil rights leader in 2006 on another racially charged casethe controversial death of a 14-year-old, African-American inmate of a Florida boot camp.
I had to call people like Sharpton and a few other black civil rights leaders and the black media to tell them about this story, said Crump. I had to get them to understand what happened to this young man and what hadnt happened in his case so they could spread the word.
Historically, cases of murder and violence against blacks in the United States rarely have been given the same amount of attention as cases in which the victims of crime are whiteand often go unnoticed and unprosecuted.
Just days after hearing the details of Trayvons death, Sharpton arranged to have Crump and the teenagers parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, on his syndicated radio show and his popular MSNBC show, Politics Nation, to tell their story.
In the wake of non-stop media attention from the likes of Sharpton and CNNs Don Lemon concerning the Trayvon Martin case, black media blogs such as MediaTakeOut.com and Huffington Post Black Voices also began publishing accounts and editorials about the Florida casedaily. Almost instantly, readers of all races, ages, and backgrounds began tweeting and posting on Facebook their outrage over how the police have handled the case, and the lack of an arrest in the shooting. To date, almost 1 million people have signed a Change.Org petition to have Zimmerman arrested. In response to the widespread outrage, the Justice Department has opened an investigation into the shooting.

Obamas New Partner: Al Sharpton
President Obama looks to Rev. Al Sharpton for help in 2012 reelection bid

Try explaining that to the hysterical idiot Glenn Beck, Sarah.
....and he’d have gold teeth and post tweets laced with hateful racist and sexist comments.
The real question is: Would Obama have allowed his daughters to date Trayvon Martin?
I hope she was being sarcastic. Of course Obama is going to try and direct this country's attention away from his sorry record and try and make this election about race again.
So why hasn’t the Florida AG’s office issued arrest warrants for Spike Lee, the New Black Panthers, Roseanne Barr, etc.?
By my reading, they’ve violated a whole bunch of laws.
I don’t think so. Unless his “If I had a son...” remark was on TOTUS, then no. It was a slip up.
Just like his “police acted stupidly” remark from a few years back.
