Are President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius purposely seeking to politicize the Trayvon Martin tragedy by injecting racial politics into the growing debate about the future of Obamacare?
Andy McCarthy, the former U.S. prosecutor who prosecuted the 1993 World Trade Center bombers and has since become one of National Review Online’s best read columnists, has no doubt that is what is happening. Here’s how he puts it in an NRO post that is generating a lot of heat by seeking to shed light on a tough issue:
“The attorney general of the United States is engaged in a shocking extrajudicial publicity campaign. Eric Holder is prosecuting George Zimmerman in the court of public opinion because he knows he wouldn’t have a prayer of convicting him in a court of law. Worse, in doing so, Holder is quite deliberately stoking resentment and tension — under the guise of leading a ‘national conversation’ about race,” McCarthy writes.
