Barack Obama emerged from his cocoon of luxury and privilege on Martha’s Vineyard just long enough to confirm that, like most domestic and foreign crises he has either ignored or completely muffed over the past six years, the mess in Ferguson, Missouri is another matter that is “beyond his pay grade.”
Unfortunately, rather than simply ignoring the looting, Molotov Cocktails, death threats, and protestor shootings at police, Obama decided to rely on his world-class instincts for making any problem worse by orders of magnitude.
Which is why the One has decided to send Eric Holder, he of Fast and Furious fame, and a proud bearer of the Contempt of Congress honor, to the front lines in the war being waged on the streets against the citizens of Ferguson.
As reported at the reference:
President Barack Obama is sending Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson, Missouri, to meet with federal law enforcement authorities investigating the police shooting of an unarmed teenager.
Holder recently authorized a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old who was fatally shot on Aug. 9. Brown was black; the officer who shot him was white.
Obama spoke from the White House on Monday after independent autopsy results determined that Brown was shot at least six times, including twice in the head.”
Obama’s decision to involve his controversial AG in the dicey issue has puzzled pundits and keen observers of the Ferguson situation.
Why would he send the flame-throwing Holder into a fray that calls for diplomacy, intelligence, and nerves of steel?
Experts believe that Holder may be authorized to make a peace offering to the New Black Panthers party, a group that Holder has patronized and bent over backwards for in the past.
Regardless of the underlying motive, Holder is sure to further inflame the situation and, in the process, make the war in Gaza seem tame by comparison!
