Mannie Sherberg
If so many of the people taking part in the protests weren't black, and so many media outlets weren't so obsessed with political correctness, somebody might just blurt out the truth -- which is that these protesters are really lynch mobs. The demand for action BEFORE the authorities have concluded their investigation has always been characterisitic of lynch mobs -- and of publicity-seeking demagogues. The idea of Al Sharpton, of all people, intervening as a moral arbiter is an affront to decency and common sense. For Obama to stick his nose into a case still under investigation is an affront to the Constitution.

I couldn't agree more, Mannie. It's mind-boggling that the President would want to stir up what is already a racial hornet's nest. He could have maintained a shred of the dignity of the office, simply by letting his Attorney General wade into it as his surrogate. But he couldn't resist being The One. It's so appalling.

In 2010, there were over 14,000 murders in the United States ( http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/uscrime.htm ). So why is this (so-far, alleged) murder different? It is useful for obama, that's why. As far as OBAMA is concerned, none of this is actually about Trayvon Martin or George Zimmerman. This is maniuplation of the "news media." Obama needs a distraction from his recent trampling of the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. obama needs a distraction from the Keystone pipeline. obama needs a distraction from the current price of gasoline. obama needs a distraction about the unemployment rate. obama needs a distraction about HIS deficits. obama's use of this Martin/Zimmerman matter is to rally his voting base. See the pictures in the above article. *THAT* IS A PRIMARY PART OF HIS VOTING BASE. Now, is it even possible for Zimmerman to get a fair jury for his trial any more, now that the President has PERSONALLY weighed in? Perhaps not. And if this therefore becomes a mistrial, that also suits obama's purposes just fine. It will keep his base foaming at the mouth.

For anybody with an I.Q. only moderately higher than that of a soap dish, it was easy--absolutely simple--to see *beforehand* that obama would use "the race card" in such a way as this. (Unfortunately, at last count, about 53% of all Americans lack this I.Q. that's only moderately higher than that of a soap dish, but that's another topic...)
