Gawd. Obama continues to make the Rookie of the Year race close. This gem is in response to critics of his Administration’s decision to try the 9/11 masterminds in NYC.
“(What) I think we have to break is this fearful notion that somehow our justice system can’t handle these guys,” Obama said in an interview with NBC News.
Asked if he understood why some people were offended by trying the men in U.S. courts, he replied: “I don’t think it will be offensive at all when he’s convicted and when the death penalty is applied to him.”
So, the President, trying to showcase the US Judicial system, declares that the defendants are guilty and, AND, he has passed judgment too!
Not that I don’t agree. Of course I think they are guilty and should die for their crimes. But I am not the President of the United States.
I just wish that Obama would remember that he IS a little more often.
