In a year-end conversation with NPR News, President Obama told Morning Edition Host Steve Inskeep that low morale around race relations in the U.S. is exaggerated by the national conversation around recent violence and not an accurate reflection of the state of affairs around the country.

“Is he delusional or is he consciously lying in order to minimize the malign effects of his presidency?”

Why do they keep asking this question? Evil or stupid?

The correct answer is it does not matter. Either is unacceptable.

That said, of course, he is lying.

” consciously lying in order to minimize the malign effects of his presidency”

he’s been told what to say.,...is too fond of the money and the power to say NO... and had no real moral objections to lying anyway.

As he sees himself above all, he’d naturally feel that way.

That's only a first order estimate of the actual situation. The sun (and the rest of the universe) revolves around Obama so it appears at first glance to revolve around the earth.

Race relations have never been worse thanks to Obama. And Holder.

Wasn’t Holder supposed to be leaving? Why is he still “acting” AG?

It’s a contest between world leaders to see who can say the most asinine thing before someone finally calls them on it.

So far Barry is tied with GWB and his “Religion of Peace” crap.

As someone who remembers the '60s, racial relations are now, without a doubt, at least as toxic as they were during the riots caused by forced busing.

Obama can't even know what it was like back then, so it's an issue where he should probably just shut up.

JMHO

I wonder when even black America will call him on the balogna. Has all this pointless drama queening of his helped racial relations one bit? New problems have gotten ginned up out of thin air, and old ones are just ignored.

I know most of the stuff is baloney but as a pale face I wonder whether the next black person I meet is now buying the baloney. People are entitled to their opinions on current events but not their own facts. Trayvon and Brown were horrible hills to die on, if one wanted to better racial issues. They are cruel exploitation of black people by racist liberals from the party that has been racist since slave days.

If you've ever watched Watter's World on O'Reilly you'll discover there's no statement so asinine that today's average voters won't believe -- especially if it involves white "racism." Our schools, universities and the MSM have done their dirty work well.

As is the case of that 12 year old who was pointing a very real looking fake gun at strangers in Cleveland.

Last week, some protestors from Ferguson bussed to Cleveland and created some havoc with their protests. There's a police chief in Cleveland who thinks it's a peaceful protest when traffic is disrupted and people can't get to holiday activities. There are parts of the east side of Cleveland that never recovered from the busing riots back in the '60s and '70s.

Speaking anecdotally, most people I know have made it a point NOT to go into the city this holiday season. And it's hard to understand why the minority community isn't speaking up forcefully supporting how the kind of neighborhood policing that isn't being done when police are diverted to babysitting out of town, out of control agitators.

The reason I'm saying it's worse is that now people don't think the situation will end until something horrible happens and law authority loses all control.

I don’t watch TV but as an ex-journo, I know you speak the Gods own truth.
