The Photo That Defines the Obama Presidency

If there is one photo that can define a presidency, it is this one. A split-screen TV screenshot. Obama is pontificating on one side while the Ferguson riots are on the other.

Several media outlets noted that Obama tried to "calm" the situation, yet his words seemed half-hearted as he continued to suggest the police were at fault, just as he has always faulted the police since he was elected.

Earlier, he had told the Ferguson protesters to "stay the course." He has no real problem with the protests. His hatred is reserved for the police. What needs to change in the future? According to Obama, the police, not violence against police.

Obama's election was supposed to dispel racial issues yet now we see that he presides over them and refuses to use his influence to stop racial violence in its tracks.
