Obama could also say: “Thirty years ago I could have been Lemaricus Davidson, Letalvis Cobbins, or George Thomas.”

The above are the names of the three black males involved in the January 2007 torture-murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Being from the suburbs of Pittsburgh I would say you were very wise to lock your car door. I once got lost driving in an all black neighborhood and it was a very frightening experience. The hatred blacks have towards whites is palpable. You couldn’t pay me to go into that crime infested city unless I was very well armed.

This comment was a GIGANTIC mistake.

For any President, let alone the petulant Obama, to align himself with a court case — especially AFTER a jury has decided it — not only demeans the presidency, it reinforces the idea that this is a single-issue guy, and that issue is race. Not smart “optics”.

It won't make a bit of difference. They knew he was a communist agitator communiteh organizer when he was running for president. Look at what happened in his native country of Kenya after his cuz Raila Odinga lost in 2007.

"And there are very few African American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me, at least before I was a senator."

The Horror!

It just seems like black America has this all encompassing blame the victim mentality when it comes to crime and white people. The Zimmerman case is an anomoly. Its FAR more dangerous for a white man to walk down the street in a black neighborhood than for a black to walk down the street in a white neighborhood, and everyone knows it.

Even the black community knows it...and when you confront them with the statistics, or God forbid, react by locking your doors, gripping your purse or GASP, watching them in the store, they dont want to talk about the things THEIR culture does to cause that reaction. Instead they want to talk about how YOU are a racist for defending yourself, how the system is broke because more of them get arrested, how prejudice you are for knowing the statistics, etc. ANYTHING but address why blacks commit so much crime.

Hell, we even had some broad on MSNBC saying that the problem with the justice system is not enough blacks on juries because of “Felony Disenfranchisement”....which for those of you who never heard of that because she just made it up, means that too many blacks have felony convictions and cant be on juries...so the solution of course is to put them on anyway, not for blacks to stop committing felonies.

Its a scam. All the bullcrap doesnt cover up that all this is just a black president covering up for blacks...which is ok for all minorities just not whites.

Was Obama beating up “crackers” 35 years ago?

If not then any comparison is silly.

“You honestly think he is worried about Republicans getting to the bottom of any of his scandals? What color is the sky in your world?”

It is my opinion that Obama, as a pathological narcissist, is more worried about his personal legacy than he is worried about Republicans at this point. If the majority of the country understands how bad these scandals really are (IRS, Benghazi, NSA, etc.,), and how bad his policies really are (Obamacare, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, trying to force homosexuality on Africa, etc.) he is concerned his legacy will be tarnished and he will be remembered as the bad president he is.

So, what does he do? He tries to divert the country away from his scandals and his failed policies by using the “race” card granted to him by an out of control alcoholic Kenyan that knocked up an under-aged American hippie before drinking himself into a stupor and killing himself in a single car accident.

The media (of all types) lap it all up because racial issues drive an increase in ratings. Every minute the cable networks (think FOX) and print media (think WSJ, IBD, etc.) take covering the death of a black thug is one less minute they have available to cover Obama’s scandals and his failed policies. Finally, the color of the sky in my world is a dark blueish grey as it is raining.

About thirty-five years ago, Obama was a snot-nose rich kid in the most elite private school in Hawaii — Punahou. How stupid does he think we are? He’s scrubbed his birth info, but his high school info still exists.
