Skip to comments.Obama: "If I Had A Son, He'd Look Like Trayvon"
Posted on 03/23/2012 2:07:30 PM PDT by pabianice
During the announcement of his nominee for president of the World Bank, President Obama was asked about the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida...
"Obviously, this is a tragedy," he said. "I can only imagine what these parents are going through. 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 exactly how this tragedy happened. I'm glad that not only is the Justice Department looking into it. I understand now that the governor of the state of Florida has formed a task force to investigate what's taking place. I think all of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how does something like this happen. And that means that we examine the laws and the context for what happened as well as the specifics of the incident. But my main message is to the parents of Trayvon Martin. If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon, and I think they are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves and that we're going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened."

Good stuff. You missed the “there once..
There once was a commie named Barry
His train of thought is, most scary
His followers are suckers
They are, mother ....
This election will be very scary...
This will be the only thing Obama talks about for the next several months....I fully expect the family of the murdered boy to be at the DNC Convention.
Even better, but I expect the AAMF (American Association for Mother*******) might take exception!
Why? Aren’t both Trayvon’s parents black?
Or a call to the British families that lost their sons recently. They were vacationing in FL and walked out of a restaurant after eating with one of their mothers. They went to a couple of bars and apparently were loaded and mistakenly walked into a “rundown” neighborhood where 2 freakin’ thugs jumped them and demanded money, made them pull their pants down and opened fire on them hitting them multiple times.
Where is the call to those families??
Six foot three, 200 pounds? Really?
While Geraldo blames the tragic death of Trayvon Martin on his mode of dress, I believe there is another element that the MSM will studiously ignore.
Barack Obama has done more to divide this nation along racial lines than anything I can remember. African Americans for Obama, Hispanics for Obama, Martians for Obama, etc., etc... are just part of it. This guys efforts to take us the rest of the way to communism have angered many of those who may already harbor latent or outright racist tendencies.
While Obamas anti-American behavior has little to do with his race, there are unbalanced folks out here who DO read race into that behavior. Once they cross that threshold, their warped minds can justify nearly any act, up to and including the killing of an unarmed black boy walking through his neighborhood. I fear there is more and worse to come.
Barack, some of Trayvon Martins blood and the blood of future black and white victims of your racism is on YOUR hands.
Obama has not brought the nation together he has divided it.
Can’t wait to hear from the Hispanic community on this.
Obama, whose-mom-doesn’t-look-like-Trayvons, was quick to call Sandra Fluke, who ,if had a daughter would look like Nancy Pelosi.
When will America’s first post racial president call Trayvon’s mom who doenst look like Camron Diaz?
Obama acted stupidly...again.
The kid might even look like Al Sharpton, you never know!
The kid might take after Michelle!
Ah, so that’s why he didn’t weigh in on the white kid that got set on fire by a couple of black teenagers. I get it now!
As we both know, the technique is called “Divide and Conquer.”
And there will be MORE blood thanks to Obama and a lot of good people — black and white — will pay for his madness.
Re: If I Had A Son, He’d Look Like Trayvon”
What an insult to an innocent victim
OBAMA, if you had a mother, would she look like Nancy Strait??
White 85 year old partially blind Nancy Strait was robbed, tortured, raped and beaten to death just the other day in Oklahoma by a gang of feral blacks.
Her 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten, his jaw broken, shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.
While the Zimmerman white on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by African Americans in Oklahoma just the other day?
WHY NO MENTION ON THE MSM??
WHY DOES IT TAKE THE BRITS TO BRING THIS NEWS TO US??
Theres a lot more here than a home invasion and robbery.
WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??
90 year old husbands jaw broken and shot in face with BB gun?
85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??
Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage
Where is the outrage?
Obama, your “son” was swallowed a long time ago.
Late night Corona ROTFLOL!
