MCCAIN: OBAMA'S TRAYVON COMMENTS 'VERY IMPRESSIVE'
Breitbart ^ | 21 Jul 2013 | BEN SHAPIRO

Posted on 07/21/2013 11:34:56 AM PDT by barmag25

On Sunday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) appeared on CNN’s State of the Union, where he called President Obama’s Friday comments on Trayvon Martin and race “very impressive.” He said, “I think we should continue to make progress,” but added that “we still have a long way to go,” even as he declined to “second guess” the verdict in the George Zimmerman case.

McCain stated that “we were probably too optimistic” about race relations in the aftermath of the election of the country’s first black president. “I think old prejudices die hard,” McCain said. ‘We have made significant progress, but I think recent events highlight the differences that remain.” McCain also said he believed that “Stand Your Ground” laws should be reconsidered in light of the Martin case, despite the fact that “Stand Your Ground” was never invoked by Zimmerman and he was acquitted on grounds of self-defense.

Progress? Maybe someday America will have a black president or a black AG of the DOJ???

Progress? Maybe someday blacks will stop accusing EVERYONE ELSE of being racists, and look into their own damn mirrors for ONCE?

I can’t put my finger on it, but damn if mclame doesn’t look to be giving us the finger a lot since his failed run.

What is it going to take for him to go away? You reckon Airheadzona will keep re-electing him?

McCain needs to be recalled by the people of Arizona. He has morphed in to a puppet once again. I will never forgive McCain or Kerry for what they did to the MIAs of Vietnam.

I voted for him why? I used to think it was because at least he was not Barack Obama. But now I see I was wrong about that too.

I am impressed by McCain’s thoughts that Obama speech was impressive.

It aint a good impression either.

just how far will McCain go to kiss Obama’s rectum?

I don’t believe there is a bridge that goes that far.
McCain is a clear and present danger to America.

The Vietnamese should have kept him at the Hanoi Hilton, anything after that busted the Peter’s Principal all to hell.

Thank the idiots in AZ for returning him over and over again.

I guess all you have to do is flash a military record and a photo of Reagan there and enough fools will vote for you however many times you run.

I have despised McCain for many many years and still don’t understand how he became the Republican nominee for President or even got reelected in Arizona after his failed presidential bid.
The stupidity of the voters astounds me.

Hey, hey. You are being very very very unkind to fools. They work hard at being fools. It just comes naturally to McIdiot. The day this guy disappears from the scene, the better off the Republic will be. Him and GrahamCracker both need to disappear and take about 250 RINOs with them.

McCain stated that “we were probably too optimistic” about race relations in the aftermath of the election of the country’s first black president. “I think old prejudices die hard,” McCain said.

I'll say everyone was too optimistic. That's not the public's fault though -- inciting racial tension is the only thing the first post-racial president finds important enough to actually exert himself for.

There’s no other way to describe him. . . .he’s just an old “fart” that has run out of gas. His insignificance is overwhelming. Since he has decided not to fight for our country and the principles of our founders. . .he has lost his way.

I'll take what M. Catherine Evans at American Thinker had to say about Obama's words over McCain's any day.

excerpt:

Since when is it a president's place to advise people in their personal moral and spiritual journey? For five years, he's been preaching to white people on how they should act. Yesterday, President Obama piped up once again on how the Trayvon Martin tragedy should move us all to be a little less racist. Predictably, he threw in Malia and Sasha as paragons of virtue for being "better than we were on these issues."

Coming from a communist father, a hippie, secular humanist, socialist mother who abandoned him, and raised by fellow travelling grandparents, a sexually perverted communist mentor "Uncle Frank" and a gay transvestite Indonesian nanny, there's no way he could get away with this laughable pedagogical moralizing without the contrived family he totes around.

From the Friday speech:

And so, you know, we have to be vigilant. And we have to work on these issues. And those of us in authority should be doing everything we can to encourage the better angels of our -- nature as opposed to using these episodes to heighten divisions.

But we should also have confidence that kids these days, I think, have more sense than we did back then and certainly more than our parents did or our grandparents did, and that along this long and difficult journey, you know, we're becoming a more perfect union, not a perfect union, but a more perfect union."

Obama Puts His Daddy Hat On, Again

According to McInsane, Trayvon had a duty to retreat and run from Zimmerman, but he didn’t.

Obama DID second guess the verdict. The jury believed Zimmerman (from the evidence) that he was attacked by Martin, who proceeded to punch him in his nose, knocking it crooked and bloodied, piled on top of him, banging the back of his head against the concrete pavement, attempted to wrest the gun away from Zimmerman. Obama takes every opportunity to stoke racial hatred and discord. - By the way, REMEMBER ANTONIO WEST! - Just another CREEPY BABY CRACKA, I suppose, by Trayvon’s definition. - The verdict in that case stank, too. -

If you consider a one-sided statement solely from the black perspective where the black community’s problems are blamed on white America impressive, then yes that was an impressive speech.

You're walking down the street. On one sidewalk is a black man walking behind you. On the other sidewalk is a white man walking behind you. Whether you are white or black, statistically, which race is five times more likely to be an attacker? You are a rational person.

When the crime statistics start reporting an insignificant difference, then we've made progress. Reducing black criminality to white levels should be the priority.
