...it would look like the baby Gosnell murdered.
If you don't understand the reference, I'm mocking Obama's statement about Trayvon Martin, the black Florida youth who was shot by George Zimmerman, a hispanic man who made a 911 call about a suspicious character while serving in his capacity as the neighborhood watch, moments before. Obama personally inserted himself into the news by saying that 'if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon.' Not only is this utterly irrelevant, but it's distasteful for the President to try to sway public opinion in favor of Trayvon being a victim by making him seem more sympathetic, when the facts of the case are still not yet fully known to the public, since the trial isn't set to begin until next month.
In a curious irony, Obama kept himself completely out of any media exposure with reference to the Kermit Gosnell trial, which arguably has much more relevance to the national interest. Why might he be so silent now, whereas before he had no qualms with making a murder accusation his personal business?
It could be that Gosnell, the now-convicted murderer, is black? It could be that the babies he aborted, and the babies he killed after they were already born, were likewise black? I believe Obama is racist. I think he decided to take Trayvon's side because he sympathized with him on the basis of skin color and some strange notion of fighting back against the "white oppressor," given that Zimmerman is a very "white-sounding" name. That George turned out to be a mixed man became a bit of an embarrassment for Obama, seeing as he thinks he's the savior of all hispanics as well. Obama's problem is that his identity-politics comes into conflict with his social agendas. He wants abortion to be fully free and legal at all costs, but he also wants to be seen as the guy all black people should vote for because he has their best interests at heart. So when a black murderer murders black babies in an abortion "clinic," that's embarrassing for Obama.
Even more embarrassing is the fact that Obama voted four times, while he was a senator, to make the stuff that Gosnell did LEGAL. That's the bottom line why I think the President has avoided making public comments about the trial. The fact is that according to his voting record, Obama doesn't think that Gosnell should have been accused of murder, much less convicted. If he were to speak against Gosnell, he'd be called out on his hypocrisy. And if he said what he really thinks, he'd alienate his voter base by revealing himself to be very, very anti-poor, anti-minority, and anti-woman.
Here is a hub link that gives source information to prove that Obama voted against making it illegal to kill a baby born after a botched abortion over four times: http://www.jillstanek.com/2008/02/links-to-barack-obamas-votes-on-illinois-born-alive-infant-protection-act/

[edit: further ironic is the fact that during the trial, Obama held a speech at a Planned Parenthood conference, ending with the cringe-worthy statement, "Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you."]
