Feel The News, March 23, 2012

This week, we learned that Florida is a place where you can kill people and not be charged.

President Obama, addressed the ongoing investigation into the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. “I can only imagine what these parents are going through,” Obama said. “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”

Obama said it is “absolutely imperative” to investigate every aspect of the case. “All of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how something like this happened,” Obama added.

In other Obama news:

The Atlantic asks: Might President Obama be the most fiscally conservative president in modern history?

In Virginia, Obama’s favorables have come up while Romney’s have gone down.

Gay Marriage Watch:

Word is, Obama’s top political advisers have held serious discussions with leading Democrats about the upsides and downsides of coming out for gay marriage before the fall election.  And there are calls for gay marriage to be added as an official plank to the Democratic Party platform.

Republican Campaign Watch:

Oh sure, the Democrats were quick to jump on this week’s “Romney-is-an-etch-a-sketch” gaffe, but Rick Santorum also might have gone too far by saying it would be better to vote for Barack Obama than an Etch A Sketch candidate like Mitt Romney.  He’s now trying to walk it back.

Oh, and Santorum will win Louisiana’s primary on Saturday, but it won’t affect the final outcome.

  1. It’s like there are two Americas–the sane one with the sane president who does and says really sane things.

    And then, the Republicans.
