You know, that's how the Apostle Paul said that he heaped burning coals on his enemies heads.

Of all the Biblical Characters, he most reminds me of Oscar the Grouch.

How about you demonstrate that Obama is doing so.
I feel sorry for the kid for the hate backlash he is going to get just because Obama made the invitation...

I wonder if Obama would have come down on the right side of this or said anything at all about it if the kid hadn't been Muslim. Of course one could probably make the argument that the kid wouldn't have gotten into trouble if he hadn't been Muslim.
possibly not; what the president is trying to show here is that America is not prejudiced

I could feel sorry for him for several reasons too.

But there is something really distasteful about Obama picking an choosing which victims of small misfortunes he's going to bring to the Whitehouse.

So many far more dramatic candidates don't even get a public nod.

The real story is that teachers, staff, and LEO are apparently unable to tell the difference between a clock and a bomb.
scary

I wonder what one would feel about the murdered police officers' kids who were not invited by Obama to come over.

Yep he can send three members of his administration to a thugs funeral, but a woman who is murdered by one of his illegal immigrants doesn't even get a nod.

obama is truly a POS!

Call me a racist.

I'm not afraid of young black men anymore that any other person but until I know the facts, I will respect the possibilities of the "device".

Perhaps the community that does not want a negative stigma attached to their children should do more, as adults, to eliminate the stigma.

As to the visit to the White House. I seem to recall a young boy at lunch with a lethal Pop Tart. Though later exonerated, he did not receive an invitation to see the President.

Jus' sayin.

But this has become a story about nationwide “Islamophobia” and “white privilege”——or about those crazy-racist-redneck-gun-obsessed Texans——and it’s not about either. It’s about a few people in positions of authority who overreacted to the possibility of a weapon. Which, as it happens, is a too-frequent occurrence all over the country, regardless of the color of your skin.

In Maryland, there was the seven-year-old Maryland boy who bit a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun (suspended),

the five-year-old with a bright red cap gun (suspended),

the three six-year-old boys suspended for making “finger guns” during a game of cops and robbers (suspended),

and the eleven-year-old who said the word “gun” on a school bus (suspended).

There was an eight-year-old finger-gun wielder in Florida (suspended), and a ten-year-old sharpshooter in Ohio (suspended).

There was the 12-year-old keychain-gunslinger in Rhode Island (suspended).

There were the two Virginia seventh-graders who were playing with airsoft guns at one of the student’s homes (suspended).

There was the five-year-old Pennsylvania girl who took aim at classmates with a Hello Kitty “bubble gun.” Suspended (for making – and I quote – “terroristic threats”).

There was the 16-year-old South Carolina student who wrote, in response to a prompt, “I killed my neighbor’s pet dinosaur. I bought the gun to take care of the business.” Suspended.

And there was the 14-year-old West Virginia student who wore a NRA t-shirt to school. Suspended and arrested.

None of these cases involved accusations of “Islamophobia,” and none were in Texas. Stupidity is equal-opportunity.

Yep... I agree. When I first read the original story, my blood boiled. I was like, "You've got to be kidding, I'll bet the idiots wouldn't even recognize a REAL bomb." I didn't even know the kid's religion.

But Obama hasn't even commented on any of those other cases. This one is special to him because it was a Muslim kid. If this had been a white kid, this would have played out like all the above cases did.

Also, this clock he made. Nothing special. No serious not the least bit special. He took the innards out of a real clock and mounted them in a pencil case. Saying he "made a clock" is rather inaccurate. He moved a clock to his pencil case from it's case would be more accurate.

I think Obama invited him for NOTHING MORE than to piss off his political adversaries...He knows what it'll look like, and he'll enjoy the reaction...

The worst thing needed in a presidency is someone who likes to stick thumbs in the eyes of people childishly, and the Left love him for it...
