George Zimmerman’s defense team released a statement Friday shortly after President Obama’s remarks in a press conference.

Zimmerman's lawyers should cut Obama a little slack on his speech today.

It's obvious that he had been smoking dope and was so stoned he couldn't even read the teleprompter.

Obama is a real piece of work. Here’s the real truth: Last year the Presidents election team needed a case (such as Zimmerman vs Martin) to stir up the emotions and divide us all along racial lines. This firmed-up his support amongst minorities....and divided up the nation.

Once the elction was safely won, he really had no use for this silly make-believe racial case. Nevertheless, the masses he fired up now want blood. In a strange way, he now has the trouble of bringing the mob back from the cliff. He knows there is no civil rights case and that there is nothing further he or Holder can do to continue the persecution of a man defending himself against a deadly attack....so, he throws a little red-meat out today in hopes their appetite is finally satisfied

Note: A Hispanic man killed Trayvon which an all female jury said was self defense. How does this have anything to do with white men?

Another note: No one is keeping black men down, with the clear exception of other black men. Pretending Trayvon Martin was this angelic boy and completely ignoring the blatent fact he attacked Zimmerman is just one of the many ways the black community keeps black people down...by allowing excuses to take the place of individual responsibility. Black people are being played for fools by a democratic party more interested in permanent status as a put-upon under-classmen then in actually helping them.

I would say bring it on. How about a civil lawsuit against a known racist Barack Obama, who in his own words wrote “White people, that’s just how they’ll do ya”, for defamation and incitement?

“Before you judge George Zimmerman or disparage the verdict of the citizen jury, understand the facts in full,” the statement reads.

The left doesn't need facts, because they have science.* __________ *The liberal definition of "science" is: Any assertion made by a liberal, regardless of whether or not it is consistent with observable reality.

My contribution to the race conversation is this: If a black man killed a white boy under similar circumstances, he would go free, and none of this vitriol from the rabid left, and race-baiting Obama pimps (media) would be going on.

There’s a pattern here, after 4 1/2 years of ackjassery. We’ve got the pResident making puerile statements, here about Trayvon™, and then you have someone playing the part of the “responsible adult.”

“Where are the nation’s conservative political leaders?”

I hope they’re waiting for the blinding flames to subside before making their comments.

I hope the Tea Party types will emerge as the leaders. Is “establishment conservative leader” a self-contradictory term?
