Obama’s Zimmerman Problem

April 14, 2012
Patrick J. Buchanan

God save me from my friends; I can take care of my enemies.

That thought must be coursing through the mind of President Obama right now as his White House rigs for silent running in the murder trial of George Zimmerman.

Obama foolishly inserted himself into this volatile case weeks ago, and injected the issue of race. Expressing empathy with the family of Trayvon Martin, Obama flashed a signal of racial solidarity:

“If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.”

Obama also implied that he shares the liberal perspective that America is a country where black kids must walk in daily fear of white racist vigilantes.

“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.”

Translation: The death of Trayvon tells us something is wrong with America.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Most time Pat is a favorite writer for his stand up courage but this time he pathetically fumble for reasons to attack Obama and please “the gang”. But I will say what our incisive Pat surely has noted, as many of us did, that there was a familiar sound to George Zimmerman defense given so eloquently by his brother, or half brother, the usual “you don’t understand how he suffers”, Netanyahu should give him a medal.
    The issue is, and most rational American will see, that there was special treatment given to Zimmerman action and that such action would
    never have been attempted had the kid been white or prominent family.
    Also keep in mind all

    Mrs. Martin was only saying “we want an an arrest I want to know what happen to my son you are not going to through his body in the morgue and save the son of a Judge and more prominent family. That is the issue Pat and you know it. For you to ignore this special treatment granted Zimmerman after some obvious and questionable “call” from higher up. We the people want to know why preferential treatment. This kid was black but “preferential treatment” is based on from above for George not because the victim was black, that of course made it
    easier, what is the key here is the STATUS of the victim compared with the attacker. WE see that all the time.
