Letter: Impeach him

A few days ago our president felt compelled again to speak about the death of Trayvon Martin. It didn’t surprise me, since he spoke about it shortly after this tragedy took place, saying: “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

Keep in mind, he didn’t have all the facts; all he knew was what was being reported by the news media, and we all know how fact-minded they are. It also didn’t surprise me that he showed up for this so-called unplanned news conference to push his anti-gun agenda.

The president said perhaps if things were the other way around and Trayvon Martin had killed George Zimmerman, he wonders if the jury would have made the same judgment. That is a racist statement. It is racist for a president to pass judgment only because this young man was black. Can’t help but wonder if it was the other way around, whether he would say anything about it at all. The president talked about what he went through as a young black male; what does that have to do with the outcome of Zimmerman’s trial? This president is an embarrassment to this country and should be impeached!

What a LOAD! You need therapy for Obama Derangement Syndrome. As John McCain said, good speech and yes, we should take a look at those stand your ground laws.
