President Barack Obama gave a surprise speech this afternoon about the George Zimmerman case. The president accepted the not-guilty verdict and said that when he was a young black man he could have met the same fate as Trayvon Martin. Many conservative Twitter users disapproved.
Stop beating around the bush #Obama - just say it already "Get out there and riot - do not let this die!" He'll be milking this forever.— Maddy Ferguson (@maddystl) July 19, 2013
Isn't it just, "we need to do some soul searching and conclude that the policies, worldview, and aims of me and my friends are right?"— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) July 19, 2013

Barack Obama and Eric Holder just want to run a Klan with a tan. You got a problem with that?— Bob Owens (@bob_owens) July 19, 2013
If you ever had any doubts, Obama is the first Racist in Chief

I like living in a country where a black president elected twice complains about racism.— John Nolte (@NolteNC) July 19, 2013
So now Obama claims he could have been Trayvon 35 years ago. Well, we know they were both potheads— JWF (@JammieWF) July 19, 2013
Plus, Fox’s Todd Starnes posted the following on Facebook:
President Obama is now our Race-Baiter in Chief. His remarks today on the Trayvon Martin tragedy are beyond reprehensible.
“Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” he said. He actually said the outcome might have been different if Trayvon had been white.
Folks – we have reached a very dangerous point in this nation when the president of the united states begins to question the judicial system.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
