What happen in Florida was a tragedy and that is something every American can understand.

The emotions at play are understandable on all sides. But what we must remember is that our nation depends on a system of law in order to function.

So what Obama should have said was this:

I ask all Americans to remain patient while this matter is handled by the courts in Florida and that those who are so inclined pray that those investigating and adjudicating this matter be empowered to find justice. They will. And as Americans it is important that we accept that outcome whatever it may be.

He could have said something like that and appeared Presidential.

Instead, he gives us a bizarre discourse of "if I had a son he'd look like Treyvon" the rhetorical equivalent of splashing gasoline near glowing hot coals.

The death of anyone, particularly a young man, is tragic.

The sad part in all of this is the president has a bad habit of wading uninformed into local controversies.

The President only tends to wade in when the press is screaming about a perceived injustice to a black person (remember Professor Gates?).

Did Obama make one peep about that poor 13 year old white boy in Kansas City who was chased by two black youths, doused with gasoline and set on fire? They were screaming, "This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy."

The boy suffered from first degree burns on his face. He did not know the perpetrators.

Did Obama go on television and say anything? You bet he didn't. Why? Because it serves NO political purpose for him to do so. His goal is to divide the country - pit the haves against the have nots, reignite racial division, etc. It's the only way he stands at re-election - getting his base all riled up.

All we can say to the President for his silence on this more obvious racially motivated hate crime - Shame On You!

You are supposed to be President for ALL Americans.
