You're not a rock star, Mr. Obama

Enough already, Mr. Obama. Any one of us could have been Trayvon-but we aren't. Playing the race card just doesn't cut it. Mr. Zimmerman was tried by a jury of his peers, and there wasn't evidence to convict him of any crime. It seems to me that you have a lot more things on your plate to start and/or finish rather getting involved in yet another area that is none of your business.

Instead of pontificating about things that should be done, offering no actual solutions, you should sit down behind that big desk in the Oval Office and actually get something done that is your job, such as defining your wonderful health care laws, which even you are at a loss to explain -- and if they are so great, why can't all of our elected officials pay for their own health care -- that would save us taxpayers a bundle of money, cutting taxes, making less laws telling us what we have to do "for our own good," repealing unfunded mandates and acting with some type of decorum to bring some dignity back to the office of the presidency.

You are not a rock star -- you are a president -- start acting like one and do something to help the people of this great country, but then again you are a lame duck.
