OT-M. Obama on the subject...
      #783272 - 04/17/12 02:31 PM

First lady Michelle Obama weighed in on the Travyon Martin case in an interview with NPR broadcast on Thursday.

"My heart goes out to the parents, because we all as parents understand the tragedy of that kind of loss, and I think that's really the thing that most people connect to," Obama said. "And it's important for us not to lose sight of the fact that this is a family that's grieving and there's been a tremendous loss. And we all have to rally around that piece of it."

Obama also said that the incident was part of the ongoing American conversation on race, a "complicated" conversation that can't only happen when there's a high profile incident.

"Talking is good. Conversations have to be forever. You know, they can't come in spits and starts when there's an incident. I think we all need, as a country, to continue to talk about these issues, to understand our communities and the challenges that we face, which are different and unique depending upon where you live," Obama said.

"It's all about, you know, continuing to get to know ourselves in a very diverse and complicated country that is America. It is a wonderful place to live. But because it is so diverse, our challenges are complex. So there isn't, you know, a one-shot solution to this. It is complicated. It takes time. It takes openness. It takes compassion. It takes patience. And it takes a lot of work. So we should all be ready to roll up our sleeves and keep doing that work," Obama said.

~~~Never has SO much said SO little, "This is sad, we should do stuff, that stuff should be good, and we should keep doing good stuff..."

Thank goodness he said nothing. Remember the whole Harvard professor incident?

Actually, he DID, he said, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon..." So, essentially, coming down on the side of the drug dealing suspected thug wannabe.

So why PICK a side until it goes to trial? You would think the DUMBASS would have learned from the Harvard thing, NOPE, he OPENS his mouth and DOES NOT THINK before he speaks.

How about, "I feel sorry for both of these individuals..."

But PLEASE, KEEP pretending that he wasn't coming down on a side. Yeah, if HE had a son, he would look like TRAYVON, or, well, like Zimmerman if the child took after Obama's MOM, or if he screwed Jennifer Lopez.

">>>>>>>> Is Zimmerman DEAD ?"

Do you think killing another human being, especially in self defense, is a piece of cake? Do you think Zimmerman isn't having nightmares? He lost his job, he has had to go into hiding, the vigilantes have placed a PRICE on his head, he is stalked and harrassed. No piece of cake for HIM either.

Oh yeah, YOU have already decided he is GUILTY, so thats OKAY, right?

">>>>>>>>> Ya mean expressing sympathy to the parents of a dead child and calling for a thorough investigation is TAKING SIDES ?"

Yes, because there IS an ongoing investigation. Of course, if he knew what he was doing, he would understand the power of his words and learn to keep his mouth shut.

Yes, because there IS an ongoing investigation. Of course, if he knew what he was doing, he would understand the power of his words and learn to keep his mouth shut.

>>>>>>>>>> Why don't you try the same ?
I'm sure him asking for a thorough investigation tainted the jury pool .

Well, why would he panic? Oh yeah, TRAYVON WAS SLAMMING HIS HEAD ON THE GROUND.

">>>>>>>>>>> Maybe he shouldn't play supercop and tail " suspicious " strangers who " might be on drugs " ."

Sure, if we ONLY stopped questioning people who are walking BEHIND houses in the rain at night in a gated community where they DON'T live (only staying) I am sure all the break in would STOP.

">>>>>>>>>> Why don't you try the same ?

Yeah, of course, NO mention of the Black Panthers THREAT and NO mention of calming things down UNTIL there is an investigation and its completed, NAH, show sympathy to the, AT THE TIME, criminal who was attacking a person and got killed (and at the time, THAT was the oficial designation).

>>>>>>>>> Maybe ole Georgie should stop playin and join the force , that way his activities are sanctioned and he wouldn't look like a dickless fool who if he's to be believed got his ass kicked by a kid . No wonder he carries , can't fight .

>>>>>>>>>> It wouldn'tmatter what he said , you'd find fault .

BTW , as of now , Zimmerman is the CRIMINAL .

Actually, per OUR justice system, Zimmerman is COMPLETELY INNOCENT.
