Obama: 'If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon'
politico ^ | 3/23/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 03/23/2012 9:19:42 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

President Obama weighed in Friday on the shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, calling it a national tragedy - and saying that the young man reminded him of his own children.

"When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids," Obama said in Rose Garden remarks. "I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this. And that everybody pull together."

Obama has come under fire from some black leaders for failing to comment on a case that has become a major national story — and brought thousands of Americans into the streets for demonstrations calling for the arrest of Martin's shooter. One black leader even wondered why Obama called a Georgetown student who was attacked by Rush Limbaugh, but not Martin's family. Obama's comments Friday represent the first time the president has addressed the growing controversy.

I don't think Trayvon is looking too good right now. And things are only going to deteriorate.

"'If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon'"

Pardon me for rudely interrupting your shameless and condescending pandering, Obama, but I'm compelled to ask:

What in the F**K are you talking about? I don't even know what that means. Idiot.

My late father used to tell me (mostly when I’d done or said something REALLY stupid - which was pretty often) that he was not my father. He said a crow crapped me on a stump and the sun hatched me.

With that said, has anyone seen Sasha and Malia’s birth certificate? So, I’m guessing no paperwork for any son either! LOL

Plus, for him to have a son wouldn’t that mean he would need to impregnate the Wookie? Obama is not my president, can’t stand any politico from Chicago for that matter. But, even I wouldn’t wish for anyone to have sex with the Wookie. Ye Gods, the very thought of it sends chills down my spine!

If Obama had a son who looked like Trayvon, it means that Obama wouldn’t be the father.

Listed on Craig’s List:

Fifty-year old manure spreader. Not sure of brand. Said to have been produced in Kenya. Used for a few years in Indonesia before being smuggled into the US via Hawaii. Of questionable pedigree. Does not appear to have ever been worked very hard. Apparently it was pampered by various owners over the years. It doesn’t work very often, but when it does it can really spread the manure and sling it for amazing distances.  I am hoping to retire this manure spreader next November. But I really don’t want it hanging around getting in the way. I would prefer a foreign buyer that is willing to relocated this manure spreader out of the country. I would be willing to trade this manure spreader for a nicely framed copy of the United States Constitution

Here we go indeed. They believe they’ve found in Trayvon their 2012 campaign theme. Race put them over the top in 2008. For 2012, it will be race, and waving its bloody red shirt, with the MSM and Hollywood in full throat.

Interesting that the media keeps referring to the very brown shooter as “white/hispanic”.

Obama already has the black vote, so its curious that he is going after hispanics like this. I wonder if he has seen a picture of the shooter, or is just thinking “whitey.

Accused killer ‘spanish-speaking minority with many black family members and friends’...

George Zimmerman’s father: My son is not racist, did not confront Trayvon Martin

Zimmerman’s father, 64-year-old Robert Zimmerman of Lake Mary, delivered a one-page letter to the Sentinel on Thursday, saying that the depiction of his son in the media has been cruel and misleading.

George Zimmerman is Hispanic and grew up in a multiracial family, the statement says.

“He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever ...,” the letter says. “The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth.”

“At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin. When the true details of the event became public, and I hope that will be soon,” the letter said, “everyone should be outraged by the treatment of George Zimmerman in the media.”

In his letter, Robert Zimmerman wrote that what happened that night was “tragic … and very sad for all concerned. The Martin family, our family and the entire community have been forever changed.”

George Zimmerman has not talked publicly about what happened, his father said, because that’s the advice police gave him. Both Zimmerman families have moved out of their homes, at least temporarily, Robert Zimmerman said, because they’ve received death threats.

I don't think Trayvon is looking too good right now. And things are only going to deteriorate.

Are you saying they both look like a cadaver? I'll bet Trayvon's lips are still much fuller and less blue to this day.

is there a pattern here?
