Pres Obama: Where's Your Speech For Baby 'Shot In The Face By Black Teens'



Valid point IMO. Once the president starts knighting for one particluar case, no matter how horrific, where does it end?

In fairness, the chances of these people walking and therefore inflaming racial tensions is in the neighborhood of twenty trillion to one against.

That doesn't fit his race baiting standards.

They aren't in anyway comparable. Zimmerman's verdict was huge national news and there was the possibility (slight imo) of civil unrest. There's no need for a President to be speak about that case.

Were the perps caught? Honestly, I had never heard of this story until two days ago and it happened in March.

I think that any Democratic President would have addressed the Zimmerman verdict, but for some reason Obama is a racist for doing so.

Yeah, they were caught. There was some controversy about that as well. I think that the mayor intervened or something. It was news here on tigerdroppings when it happened.

Caught and charged with first degree murder. One will be tried as a juvenile on account of being fourteen.

Because it fit the media narrative and was good for ratings and revenue.

And why would that be?

Which of the two stories do you find to be more horrific? more worthy of news coverage? For me it's the case of the 18 month old baby being shot in the face in cold blood.

. Easy answer is too easy. But it would be insensitive and racist to promote this story.

Whatever the reasons, one is a huge story and the other is not. Obama isn't to blame for that.

Whatever the reasons?!? You seriously don't know what the reasons are?

And Obama is not SOLELY to blame, but he sure as hell made matters worse by his comments. His comments were aimed at appeasing his base, not helping the nation.

The POTUS has no business commenting on either story. It is unethical, inappropriate, and irresponsible for him to do so. There's really no good reason why he should respond to GZ/TM or this story. It's a local matter and he has no business commenting on that.

What he should've done was shut the frick up and not give the GZ/TM story recognition and legitimacy from the President of the United States of America.

Instead, he chose to be petty and play divisive politics to appease the ignorant masses. Honestly, the last thing the DNC should be doing is alienating white people.

Why? They are becoming the minority and less economically mobile as other groups?

Any smart party knows to focus on that group at the exclusion of others will make them lose (and the proof is in the 2012 pudding)

I tend to agree with you on the reasons, but I think that it's complicated.

As far as Obama's comments, I don't really know what he said because I didn't watch. In general I have no problem with him speaking on such a polarizing issue if it helps the country move on.

You mean the case where dad wasn't at the scene and miraculously had gunshot residue on him? And maybe he was arrested about a month ago for a family violence charge too... nothing weird with this case at all.

My favorite is the race baiting photo crying how a grand jury didn't go for the death penalty in this case. You know since scotus deemed you can't execute minors, I'm shocked the simpletons dont know care law.

It only went into national news because Obama is just like Jesse and Al. A race-baiting, cultural racial war fare radical, racist, bigot. Obama sat in a church preaching HATE WHITEY (Was married in,had his daughters baptized in) for 20 years. Books have revealed that when Obama was up and coming he was trained by Jesse Jackson. I believe Obama is clearly a more radical version of those that taught him.

I heard plenty about it when it went down. It was probably the only thing discussed on the news radio show that I listen to on my commute home for two days straight, at least while I was tuning in.

Now, I'm hearing about it all over again from those complaining that nobody heard about it.
