Barack Obama: Trayvon Martin wasn't perfect
Orlando Sentinel ^ | 8//7/13 | Hal Boedeker

Posted on 08/07/2013 5:15:54 PM PDT by Nachum

President Barack Obama discussed Edward Snowden, the health care law, Hillary Clinton and Russia during a Tuesday visit to "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno." But Obama´s comments about the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin had special local interest. George Zimmerman was acquitted last month of murder in the teen´s death in Sanford. Some Americans have criticized Obama previously for commenting on the issue, but Leno said that the president had spoken eloquently and from the heart about Trayvon´s death. "I think all of us were troubled by what happened," Obama told Leno.

He may not be perfect but he’s sure a lot better now than he was in January, 2012.

The only thing that troubled me was the way they tried to hang Zimmerman.

Zimmerman did Florida a favor.

Obama....."We all know young African-American men disproportionately have involvement in criminal activities and violence for a lot of reasons,"

If he really cared about black youth...he would tell black women to get married first and then have kids...

Almost all of the issues in the black community can be traced back to the breakup of the family

So, what does he have to say about the four Americans who were killed at Benghazi? The a**hole is obsessed with Trayvon Martin.

Trayvon was a thug. White hoods are illegal— Black hoods should therefore be the same. This pot smoking thief was kicked out of school (which he and his fat girlfriend , Jeantel) badly needed and was living with his daddy’s MISTRESS lurking around gated communities looking for any opportunity. Zimmerman is a national hero.

Obama refers to Saint Skittles of Sanford in less than a perfect way, and the Miami media ignores!!

This means the Trayvon canonization isn't polling well for the clown. The "boost" it gives him in the urban community isn't as beneficial as the "decline" it gives him in the rest of the public.

Guess who goes under the bus next?!

"I think all of us were troubled by what happened," Obama told Leno.

The ONLY thing that troubled me regarding the death of Trayvon Martin was the politicizing of an obvious self-defense case that should never have resulted in charges, and that Obozo didn't keep his mouth shut from the start.

I’m only “troubled” by the Political Show Trial caused by Pharaoh Obama’s getting involved with a local issue simply because the Thug was Black and the Guy who was attacked wasn’t.

Kind of reminds me of Obama’s involvement with another Political Prosecution when he let FOUR Americans DIE for no apparent reason. Enter Susan Rice, the Liar’s designated Liar who ends up getting promoted for her efforts.

The rest as they say is history, except for the Video maker rotting in Jail while the Obama’s vacationed on the Taxpayer’s dime.

Obama-”I think all of us were troubled by what happened”

Why yes indeed Mr. President, “we” are all indeed “troubled” by the media and political circus that you and your supportive media cast and assorted political minions created and then used, to persecute and wrongfully prosecute an innocent man, under color of law.

I'm sure Obama gets a daily morning briefing from the NSA that attempts to measure just how “troubled” the vast majority of USA citizens are about just about everything.
The “chatter” levels have risen to dangerous levels, right?

Oh look over there!
There are dangerous terrorists in Yemen, Egypt, Libya, Florida, Syria, Iran, Texas,Russia, North Korea, China, Mexico, ...Thank goodness there are none in Washington DC !

Obama danced around the issue. He should be trying to explain that even if you think Trayvon did “not get justice”, that the letter of the law was followed.

He is straddling two mindsets.

Only Obama would think he has any business commenting on Trayvon’s worth as a person, now negative as well as positive comments. In effect he now is calling Trayvon a criminal.

It’s all inappropriate.

"...it doesn't mean Trayvon was a perfect kid, none of us were...when you're a teenager, especially a teenage boy, you're gonna mess up."

Drugs, booze, burglary, thugging, foul chip-on-shoulder attitude, misogyny, beating up strangers, MMA fighting, truancy, guns. Odd, but I don't remember that sort of "messing up" when I was a teenager.

Might it have something to do with Democrat destruction of the black family?

Nah. Surely not.

Slither back to your stinking Cook County hole, you despicable race-bating divisive SOB.

Obastard sure does like to bandy that "all of us" line around. "We all know Globull Warming is real." "Everybody agrees Obastardcare is swell." "All of us were troubled by what happened" to St. Skittles. To hear him tell it, nobody ever disagrees with this pr**k.

Yeah, Obastard, I'm troubled about it too, but not for the same reason as you, slick.

Indeed; and too late as well. They must have done polling; and the heartbeat of the 'collective Left' goes up; when whenever Zero mentions Trayvon. . .the hapless thug Obama could have been -instead of the pro; Obama is today.

“Conversation” means “I’ll lecture you about what you will think then ask you to contribute something.” “Ask” is in the same sense as “We’re going to ask the rich to pony up more taxes, under threat of jail if they refuse.”

Where I’m from, a conversation has two participants. Obastard is not, nor ever has been interested in a “conversation.” Neither is that outlaw AG of his.

Barry the Boob: "And so what I'm trying to do is just make sure that we have a conversation and that were all asking ourselves, Are there some things we can do to foster better understanding?"

Hey, Barry...I got yer "understanding" hangin' right heah, pal. It goes like this: If you don't attempt to murder the neighborhood watch captain, you probably won't get shot.

Exactly. You put it better than I could. It’s like ‘gun control.’ Their consuming interest in a conversation on the topic has very little to do with guns and an overarching interest in control.
Most of the country would like a conversation, I think, on the topic of Chicago gang violence and minorities and ‘stop-and-frisk’. This is a “conversation” that will never take place.
“Conversation.” It’s like the James Taylor song : “Love is just a word that’s heard when things are being said.” It’s just Barry doing what he does best: gassing.

Even obozo admits that young black men commit more crimes and are more violence-prone than other teens.

Why does he not understand that my RIGHT of self protection demands that I watch these people more carefully than I watch others.

If they don’t like being watched, clean up there behavior and wait a few years.

Now it doesn't mean Trayvon was a perfect kid, none of us were

Hey Barry, how many whites -- excuse me, you would call them Haoles -- did you attack and try to kill while you were a teenager in Hawaii? I ask only because you seem to consider Trayvon Martin's attempt to kill George Zimmerman to be only slightly troubling, as though it was a common childhood event. Perhaps to you, trying to kill Haoles was a common childhood event.

After you answer, please describe what you have done to protect George Zimmerman and his family from the Black Panthers. You remember them, you and Holder dropped default judgments against them for clear-cut voter intimidation. To show their Obama-love they shouted "You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker!" at prospective voters.

In July the Panthers put a $10,000 dead-or-alive bounty on George Zimmerman. Have you asked your Panther pals to now announce that they no longer wish to see Zimmerman die? The Panthers and their supporters may be racist hatemongers, but they're your racist hatemongers, they will listen to you.

Just kidding. If you wanted to rescind the "Kill Zimmerman" fatwa, you would have already done so. You won't give Zimmerman a chance to live a normal life. It's simple: the Panthers still want Zimmerman dead, and so do you, and so does Holder.

Will King Samir Shabazz stay in the Lincoln Bedroom after the White House party celebrating Zimmerman's murder?
