    Short answer is no. I doubt there is anyone within this administration that could write a worthy speech or if Trump could stay on script.

    We saw how they reacted to Kaepernick kneeling in protest. Their instinct is to ignore the issue, punish anyone with the courage to speak to it, and utilize it politically to stoke their base.

    Along with the silent majority they are the problem.

    Enacting policy that you campaigned on and people elected you on is not dividing the country. If that is true than Obama also divided the country. That is simply the nature of politics. The ACA was a huge divider of the country.

    The inept governor of Minnesota believed all the "models" and expected 2-1/2 million dead so he kneejerk reacted and bought with taxpayer money, a 71,000 sq ft refrigerated warehouse to store all the dead bodies in spite of the fact the funeral directors in MN said they would never have a capacity problem.
    It sounds like a great place to house the looters running rampant in the city.

    NOT before or during the Ferguson Riots.But After while back in
    Chicago.Plus after the Midterms in November it was reported but
    scantily that Obama secretly met { with Pal Al Sharpton } with Ferguson
    Protestors in order to deliever a covert message { Obama's signature trademark}
    PRIOR to any civil unrest.The New York Times was in on the subterfuge.

    A press conference is scheduled. My guess is the content will be the opposite of what’s required.

    Although, the teleprompters are setup...

    He should absolutely not.

    MAGA isn't going so hot, we don't need more of it.

    United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

    We've never been more divided as a nation since the 1860s. Not sure what MAGA even means.

    Tonight, speaking from the White House Briefing Room, President Obama spoke to the American people about the announcement of the grand jury's decision in the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. The President joined Michael Brown’s parents in calling on anyone who protests to do so peacefully.

    In his remarks, the President offered a path forward for our country, noting that the situation in Ferguson speaks to broader challenges we still face as a nation including the mistrust between law enforcement and communities of color. The President asked the nation to heed a grieving father’s words tonight and called on the country to seize this moment tomorrow as an opportunity for change.

    But looks like the correct decision.
    As the repeal and replace was hot air.

    Trump just took control. He made the Democratic governors and mayors look weak and pathetic.

    Now he needs to kick ass.

    trump has already cut and run from his duties as potus. He is completely unfit for the job he holds. Hiding out in a bunker tweeting insults and threats is all that coward is capable of.

    The only thing Dirty Donald can address is a golf ball and more often than not it is misdirected.

    The left has been tearing us away from the Constitution and our traditional values for 50+ years. That’s the source of our divide.

    What's to say? The murderer of George is being charged.

    There is still rioting, looting, and killing.

    I hope those looters feel safe. Because at some point, it'll come back to haunt them.

    Richmond, VA is a prime example. Looters destroyed downtown...but then returned home to looted houses lol...and guess who they called to ask for help?

    The election in November will be “Trump vs. the party of riots”.

    In what way specifically.
    I see more people, more groups have more equal rights that we all should have had. I see that as making every one closer to the constitution.
    If by traditional values, you mean leave it to Beaver of the 1950s. For most every group of people in the country, that is better for them.

    But I have no idea what you mean the left has been tearing away from the Constitution and our, who is our?, traditional values.

    I could give many examples, but it basically comes down to the effort to move us away from small government and capitalism and toward a massive federal bureaucracy and socialism. Big Brother on steroids.

    Our President gave a nice,eloquent address.And proved his mettle
    by going directly to that Church { St.John's } that was defiled.
    He walked straight away to it as a crowd of Press and secret service
    agents followed.
    I see where Washington Post Hack/Flak { Eugene Robinson }
    wasted no time this morning on - Morning Joe - calling out Trump's
    church visit after his important Protest Address with a vile attack.
    Accusing him of How dare he make a photo op.
    At least we know these Scum like Robinson are never gonna let
    their Hate on Trump guard down for a lonely second.
    Robinson a regular Obama praising toadie contributor on
    - Morning Joe -. Got a Pulitzer for his laughing gas articles praising
    Obama in 2008.I don't think he wrote One sentence even casually
    questioning Obama's 2008 Presidential platform or statements.
    The very definition of a Flak.
    The New York Times received a Pulitzer for 2 of it's reporters with
    Mueller Special Counsel articles.Which used a pack of lies to
    back up their content.They should be forced to Give Back those
    Pulitzers.
