Obama: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”

Written By: Bob - Mar• 23•12

Do you think so, Mr. President?

President Obama spoke out for the first time on Friday about the fatal shooting of an unarmed 17-year-old African-American boy in Florida named Trayvon Martin, calling it a “tragedy.”

“I can only imagine what these parents are going through,” Mr. Obama said from the White House Rose Garden, “and when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids, and 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 pulls together, federal, state and local, to figure out how this tragedy happened.”

Mr. Obama said he is glad the Justice Department is investigating the shooting and that Florida Gov. Rick Scott formed a task force in response to the incident as well. The president suggested he was sympathetic to suspicion that the shooting may have been racially motivated.

“You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Mr. Obama said.

What, you don’t think your son might look like one of these guys?

Sure, they’re representative of just some of the 300 dead Mexicans and two federal agents your Administration helped murder with the Operation Fast and Furious gun-running plot, and they’re not the “right” kind of minority for you to care what happens to them. But you know what?

They were somebody’s sons, too. And your Administration contributed to their murders by putting thousands of weapons in cartel hands, to push for gun control and defend your infamous “90-percent lie.”

    Ear Leader’s son would look like Trayvon only if one of his boyfriends could get pregnant…or if the SCOAMF could.

    Where was President Obama when the 12 year white boy who had gasoline poured on him by 2 older black kids? And, it turns out the white 12 year old was attending a school where he was a miniority and where the TEACHERS were acting overtly racist, thereby encouraging racist thoughts and feelings.

    THAT was a racial incident and had it been of reverse colors it would probably have warrented a DOJ investigation and a comment by President Obama.

    He’s not the “post-racial President” we were promised…. he’s the PC racial grevience President that does not care about healing the country and ending any racial divides, but in the perpetual anger mongering of only blacks against only whites.

    Me? I’m a “judge a person by their actions” kind of guy. But, I’m white, Christian, straight, and conservative – so that automatically classifies me as some racist for even commenting (unless I agree with Pres. Obama)

    I’ll cut Zimmerman some slack that I spared from that freak that killed 19 innocent Afghans.

    I do not have to hit your archives to know you posted some BS about how a “good soldier just snapped”, you foul demonic eternal neocon.

    If Obama had a son whether or not he looked like Trayvon, Zimmerman would have been shot down by multiple Secret Service agents … assuming Zimmerman actually tried to stop the motorcade.

    Breaking: Witness: Martin attacked Zimmerman

    Money quote: “But one man’s testimony could be key for the police.

    “The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: ‘help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911,” he said.

    Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.”
