Well, why not? His close buddy Al Sharpton is helping orchestrate the media hysteria, so why not send in another clown?
The White House has weighed sending President Obama to Ferguson, Mo. and has not ruled out a visit in upcoming weeks, according to sources familiar with the internal decision making.
For now, the White House believes a trip by Obama to Ferguson would do more harm than good by diverting resources on the ground at a pivotal time for law enforcement.
Surely they can arrange something important, say, a fundraiser, so Obama won’t be completely disinterested. Missouri Democrats, meanwhile, want no part of this failure visiting.
Two Missouri Democrats on Tuesday said it would be a bad idea for President Obama to visit Ferguson, Mo.
They said the last thing authorities in the St. Louis suburb need right now is to deal with the security surrounding a presidential visit, something they also said would also place unrealistic expectations on Obama.
“So, I don’t think the president needs to come to Ferguson,” Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program.
“It adds another distortion. We don’t need that now. And we don’t need any more people coming into Ferguson to help the poor people out during this time of trouble,” Cleaver said. “What we need is a sense of calm and anything other than that is going to be dangerous.”
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) went further calling a presidential visit a “bad idea” because of the increased burden it would put on police.
They don’t need that dreaded Obama Magic Touch.
