Wishful thinking: Imagining President Obama’s response to the #Gosnell verdict

Posted by: ST on July 19, 2013 at 7:53 pm

Our celebrity President finally weighed in today on the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman trial and – as usual – had to make it about himself:

President Obama publicly and personally addressed the Trayvon Martin case for the first time since George Zimmerman was acquitted nearly a week ago, relating his own experiences to the “pain” the black community is feeling and going on to question so-called “stand-your-ground” laws.

The president delivered extensive remarks during a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room. He suggested race may have played a strong role in the case, saying that if a “white male teen” were involved, “both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.”

He went far beyond his remarks a year ago in which he stirred controversy by saying if he had a son, he’d look like Martin.

“Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” Obama said.

Sigh. Ignoring the fact that the Zimmerman case had nothing to do with SYG laws, and the fact that Zimmerman utilized his weapon lawfully upon being attacked, let’s all fantasize for five seconds what it would have been like had the President bothered to comment on the Gosnell verdict as well.  Now, I KNOW he would NEVER display the kind of boldness and leadership needed to be able to make these remarks in the face of his pro-choice cult-like followers, but – again – this is a fantasy, not reality.  My imagined response from BO:

“I could have been any one of those babies 51 years ago.” And/or: “We need to revisit abortion laws to determine whether or not our clinics are safe enough for women.” **

I know. Too much to ask, right? Especially from the most pro-abortion President in our nation’s history.  Sigh …

Planned Parenthood and Obama

Further proof of an America in decline. : (

** Note: I know abortion wasn’t legal in Hawaii at the time of Obama’s birth but my point was philosophical, not literal. :)

    Tying this in with Phineas’ previous post, you’ll notice that while Obama can find the time to make a “surprise appearance” in the briefing room to yap about this case, he can’t spare a moment to comment about Benghazi.

    I figure it’s because either (1) he can’t figure out a way to interject himself into the Libya case and look good in any way to anyone, or (2) he’s only interested in firing up the mob to pressure DOJ to hurry up with more trumped-up charges. Or (3) all of the above.

  2. Today Obama did what he does best; fanning the flames of race hate. Stirring racial animosity and setting back race relations by decades. Congratulations, Mr President, this is your legacy

    George Zimmerman could be any of us tomorrow.

  4. His opening remarks were about the professional conduct of the Zimmerman trial and about a jury rendering a just verdict. He should have stopped there because the more he expatiated, the less sense he made. As usual.

    If Obhammud says something in the forest yet no one hears, is he still wrong?

  5. JoyO says:

    I blame the media and the folks from the DOJ that this trial has become such a “race ” issue. The media first claimed that Zimmerman was White–then, when his photo clearly showed he was Hispanic , the media made him into a White Hispanic. Subsequently, it edited the 911 call cutting out key things — like when the 911 guy had to ask Zimmerman if Martin was white, black, or Hispanic. The media never once mentioned that Zimmrman’s grandmother or grandfather was Black. Then the race baiters from the DOJ who seem to have arranged the initial protests by bringing in three Left activists.

    The irony here is that the Obama family is protected from gangster-wannabe Treyvons, by George Zimmermans. Barack should invite George to the White House for a beer; the “community organizer” and the neighborhood watch Captain have a lot in common!

  7. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Obhammud half white? Why does that side never come out? It is reminiscent of the demon in Regan (Linda Blair) in the ’73 film “The Exorcist”.

    Whenever he whines about racial injustice it sounds like Orestes complaining about Clytemnestra.

    Yep. Both punk thugs who viewed the world as totally unfair to them.

    And the only reason one of them still does is that the other one is dead because he was a punk thug.
