• GOP Rep To Obama: Invite Darren Wilson To The White House And Thank Him For Doing His Job

    It’s a challenge that Obama isn’t likely to take, but it’s still a good idea.

    One day after a grand jury decided not to indict officer Darren Wilson for the August 9th shooting death of Michael Brown, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) challenged Obama to invite officer Wilson to the White House.

    “I think it would be very helpful if President Obama went and met with the police officer, or invited him to the White House and said, ‘you’ve gone through four months of smear and slander, and the least we can do is tell you that it’s unfortunate that it happened and thank you for doing your job,’ ” King said Tuesday.

    King excoriated those smearing officer Wilson as a racist cop without knowing all the facts.

    “I thought it was terrible how, over the last four months, a narrative was put out there by our national leaders and many in the media presuming that the police officer was guilty,” King said.

    Obama urged protesters Monday night to protest in a nonviolent manner, just as violent rioters burned cars and buildings to the ground.

    “I wish he had said one good word about the police, one good word about Officer Wilson, who has gone through all this,” King said of Obama’s remarks.

    Obama spoke again on Tuesday at an immigration amnesty rally. Obama promised to work with anyone who wants to help pursue positive reforms. So Obama’s dogged interest in Ferguson is one reason why King’s idea is solid. Add that in 2009 Obama invited Cambridge, Massachusetts police officer James Crowley to the White House for a “Beer Summit” after the controversial arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates.

    King also had harsh words for Al Sharpton, who has been a racial arsonist from day one.

    King submits that Al Sharpton should not be a “moral arbiter” and said “let’s start looking for the good people on both sides.”
