The WHITE HOUSE issued a WRITTEN statement. Where is my surprised face.
Barack Obama shoves his face in front of cameras at every opportunity, but on this, his staff sends out a press release. ::snort:: The people most likely to riot are the same people least likely to pay any attention to a written statement.
They are also the people most likely to do whatever Obama tells them to do. If he cared about calming the waters, he’d make the rounds of the media outlets they DO pay attention to and make repeated, personal, and very firm calls for them all to calm down. But he doesn’t, so he won’t.
This meaningless statement is only out there so, when they do riot, he’ll be able to pull his sad face and wipe his faux tears and say, “I said from the beginning that we should respect the rule of law.” And his sycophantic toadies will believe or pretend to believe he actually did NOT want riots.
But I believe in my heart of hearts that he does want them and he’s going to get them even if he has to send his own people into these communities to incite them. Oh wait. He already did that … and taxpayers financed it.
