    It will take some of the attention from jobs, taxes, gas prices, etc. that obama would prefer not to debate.

    The president and his advisors will still remember the mess he created for himself by immediately condemning the "Skip" Gates incident, when Obama instantly castigated the police for what turned out to be a valid investigative entry into Gates' dwelling. Gates himself, I am sure, was inwardly seething about being forced to share beers with the officer who confronted him in his house during that "incident". Notice the president's rather reserved advocacy for "justice" in that news conference.

    A followup comment about all the thinking that Obama will reserve his "real" agenda until his second term: Since Ike, presidents have been LESS effective in their SECOND term than in their FIRST; being locked out of running for another term really cuts political clout. Presidents approaching the end of a first term are pre-occupied with simply getting reelected; long-range political strategy becomes an afterthought compared with the "indignity" of being a president who could not win a second term.

    Nah. O will have to give full and factual report on Fast-and-Furious to get any credibility on any gun-related conversation, adult conversation.

    But Credibility in Obama is like CherryBlossom in Antartica. CherryBlossom doesn't take root in Antartica, neither will Credibility in Obama.

    Let's be honest here.

    Obama WILL win a second term.

    The Rep.'s have two of the WORST candidates in Histroy (seriously? The "I'm a Morman" billboards make me sick)
    PLUS, they've bashed one another right out of the election.

    Obama is in again, donate to the NRA to protect our second amendment, and other than that, Obama has NOT hurt us one bit in the great state of Texas.

    By the way, before you respond, BRING FACTS to the table. Not some bull**** email spam you received at your bible study.

    I offer a coincidence that makes real life look weird:

    I just got an NRA e-mail solicitation. One of the items it offers: a concealed-carry dark grey hooded sweatshirt, priced at $60-$65. If you think I am making this up, I can forward the e-mail. An NRA hoodie; something for EVERYONE to yell at.

    POSTSCRIPT: No forwarded email is necessary. Go to www.nrastore.com, and click on the "sweatshirt" category in the left column. All their hoodies will be there.

    The more facts coming out, the quieter the self-holy-one becomes.

    One interest fact is that Zimmer is 50% Jewish and 50% Latino, not a drop of white blood. So I think a "few" Latinos are p.o.'d , at a minimum. Add to that an assault on the Catholics that has 78million members in the US (not all can vote) and I get the impression that the holy-one thinks arrogantly that even with self-destruct activity, he can still win.

    Those of us who CAN think, will need to carry the baton for those who CAN'T think for themselves. Vote and vote well. That, we can all agree.

    Additional reports make the situation even MORE complex. Our Mr. Zimmerman is reported to have BOTH BIOLOGICAL parents of Hispanic derivation. Zimmerman's Jewish father adopted him after marrying the mother, and the son took the father's surname.

    Based simply on Zimmerman's photos, this situation looks entirely plausible. The advocates of Martin's cause seem to be taking some heavy shots in the last few days.

    The first time around I had a month long “battle” with someone that though the anointed one could walk on water. I posted post after post of his blatant racist and socialistic writings and friends, speeches and voting record. He insisted I was wrong and insisted on voting for the Obomination. About three months into his term I received a PM apology. Seems I was right and the guy said his eyes were finally open. A little late, but hopefully he won’t be voting for the messiah this time round.

    This case has the potential to backfire on the O more than healthcare. Many people are already getting the feeling that this case is screwed up by the media and the black pols are looking less serious by the minute. Further this has the potential to piss of lots of hispanic or latinos (whatever) with the behavior of the O administraiton and various race hustlers condeming Zimmer (who is what 1/4 white) as a racist...

    Spice it up with the New Black Panther Party offering bounties to kidnap people (federal felony to induce someone to commit kidnapping) and Sheldon "Spike" Lee giving out some other Latino family's address (similar name as shooter) and encouraging people to go to the house, and you have a formula for bad things to happen.

    This could easily peel off Latino/Hispanic voters in a tough election year (60+% of the American people do not approve of the O's leadership in a recent poll).

    Elian Gonzales shifted the 2000 election to Bush.

    Sometimes ENOUGH people in a vital place remember a name long after 2 months have elapsed. An Hispanic with the improbable name of Zimmerman may have the same effect in the 2012 election.

    I have no doubts Obama is anti gun rights. However, I don't know if he will see pursuing an anti gun agenda, as in the interest of his reelection. And if reelected will Obama see the passing of anti gun agenda as something that will promote his "legacy."

    What I do feel at least pretty sure of is that Obama, if he decides to pursue an anti gun agenda, will be careful who is uses as a "poster boy" for gun control. It could well turn out that Martin was no choir boy and that evidence indicates Martin was the aggressor. If this happens and there are subsequent "social disturbances," I really don't believe Obama would want to be seen as having provided an excuse for riots by his use of Martin as a "poster boy/victim."

    I can you see Al, Jesse, et al saying after an acquital of Zimmerman that even Obama said Zimmerman was guilty. Where is the justice in America? Lets riot and attack the "man." If this happened Obama's legacy would be seen by many as giving aid and comfort to rioters.
