34. You know what? I'm sick of these "causes" being laid at the White House steps. Do you know how....

many young minority men & women sit behind bars, because they don't have the high celebrity profile of a Don Seigelman, or Bradley Manning, or Julian Assange. Why is it Pres. Obama's job to make a "national case" for Seigelman, when so many Black and Latino are rotting away in prisons, nationwide? You can dance around this issue all you want, but at the end of the day, Pres. Obama would be doing the same as Ford and Bush. As I've stated, I'm hopeful that Seigelman will be pardoned, but timing is everything IMHO.

I know the president's constant critics could care less about "political risks", but his "supporters" want him reelected. With the election mere months away, I want him to concentrate on getting retaking the WH. Perhaps, in his second term, he can afford to be even more controversial. But your unsubstantiated swipe at the president's "aversion" to political risks is unwarranted, and hyperbolic, and unworthy of further debate.
