Not that the Michael Brown shooting isn’t a terrible thing, but the attention given both from the media and the president to this story versus the atrocities in Syria, Iraq and the Ukraine is totally disproportionate to the effect on human lives.
I guess this “at home” crisis plays more into the political advantage of the president because it diverts attention from his foreign policy failures. Hope you are enjoying Hyannis Port, Mr. President. Is Rome burning while Nero fiddles?
