Barack Hussein Obama can't seem to get over the Trayvon Martin case. First, it was his statement that his son would look (and act ?) like Trayvon. Now, he says that "Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago". One wonders what next pearl of wisdom will escape the lips of POTUS: "I did the same thing Trayvon Martin did 35 years ago, but got away with it"?
Even half-wit presidents like Slick Willie and Dubya had the presence of mind not to interject so obnoxiously into a criminal case which was adjudicated by a jury of their peers. For someone who supposedly went to Harvard Law School, our current president demonstrates a remarkably poor understanding of how American courts work.
Obama would do well to remember the words of his friend Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson before he makes any more idiotic and incendiary comments about the Trayvon Martin case:
There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved...
