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.

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.
