We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis.

How about the tide of 'bashing skulls on pavement' violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis?

Or is your agenda the most important thing?

F***ing punk.

That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.

Next week I presume he's going to tell us how to honor the Boston marathon bombers, then the 911 terrorists, and after that perhaps Fidel Castro or some other nefarious character. Cause if you're a Dem, apparently that's who you honor.

I really don’t know how his statement could have been improved (except maybe by Shutting TFU in the first place). I give him credit for making about the best statement he could have.

What you have wanted him to say, other than apologize for his initial ill-considered statement? I honestly think this is about the best we could have gotten from him.

The People’s Republik of Madistan is a MAGNET now for every type of thug, gang banger and miscreant you can imagine, which doesn’t make me want to develope friendships there!

The unvarnished truth is that Travon Martin got exactly what he deserved. He committed a sneak, unprovoked, atrocious assault which was interdicted only by the use of deadly force. If he had not been shot he might well have killed George Zimmerman. One more blow to the head, one more bash of the head against concrete, one more attempted suffocation might well have been the murder of George Zimmerman. If Travon Martin had succeeded in getting possession of Zimmerman's gun, it is very likely he would have used it because he had already threatened Zimmerman's life before he commenced to beat Zimmerman within an inch of his life.

There is no plausible evidence contrary to these conclusions.

The president asks:

We should ask ourselves...how we can prevent future tragedies like this

The answer Mr. Pres. is to encourage more lawful gun possession so that murder and assault on the public pathways of American might be reduced as was so well accomplished in the matter of state vs. George Zimmerman.

Here’s a link to HuffPo article. The comments are interesting. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/14/obama-george-zimmerman_n_3595631.html

“Why honor a young man who was killed while apparently trying to beat someone to death? He’d still be alive if he hadn’t been doing that. That’s what the evidence showed. The jury decided the case on the evidence.

“Is it sad that Martin died? Of course. But to “honor” him is, in effect, honoring his violent behavior.

“Perhaps holding him up as an example of what can happen when you pound someone into the ground might stem the tide of violence. Not necessarily “gun” violence.”

we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities.

I'm thinking about widening the circle of compassion by taking $20 million of taxpayer's money and blowing it on an extravagent vacation on Martha's Vineyard, following my $100 million vacation in Africa.

Can I get an "Amen"?!

This race-hustler is too late to the dance. Every time the guy opens his mouth and makes an off-the-cuff statement about a racially-charged event, he makes a complete @ss of himself.

Just go back to that idiotic "cops acted stupidly" comment about the Henry Louis Gates incident in Massachusetts a few years ago. If law schools didn't have affirmative-action policies, he'd probably be selling used cars somewhere in the Chicago area today.

But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. The jury found George Zimmerman 'not guilty' of murder.

It seems the WH left out that part in red. Purely unintentional, of course. It will probably be in the corrected version coming soon. [/s]

Why would anyone want to "honor" the guy who assaulted George Zimmerman? The implications of the jury verdict are absolutely clear in this case: By returning a "not guilty" verdict on all counts, they determined that Zimmerman had justifiably acted in self-defense after he was attacked by Martin.

They found Zimmerman “not guilty” on the manslaughter count, too. Basically, the jury determined that George Zimmerman had absolutely ZERO culpability in Martin’s death even though there was never any doubt that Zimmerman shot him to death.

"That's the way to honor Trayvon Martin."

Who, according to the JURY, Mr. President, spent his final moments attacking Zimmerman and who had a prior list of minor offenses.
