Yes and its offense
Yes and I don't care
No its right wing media hype
No and if it were true it'd be ok with me.

But Obama had no problem sending three members of the White House staff to the funeral of someone who was caught on tape committing a felony, a strong arm robbery.
Chuck Hagel, members of the Obama Executive Cabinet are not part of the White House staff.
Nobody expected Obama to attend Generals Green's funeral or did anyone expect Obama to send members of the White House staff in his place representing him. Those who were present at Gen. Green's funeral were expected to have attended. Not sure if Gen. Austin attended or not, he was third in the chain of command.
And for Snopes, they have just about as much credibility as Wikipedia.
SNOPES IS RUN BY A MAN AND A WOMAN WITH NO BACKGROUND IN INVESTIGATION USING GOOGLE.
>" Snopes.com has been considered the 'tell-all final word' on any comment, claim and email. Once negative article by them and people point and say, "See, I told you it wasn't true!" But what is Snopes? What are their methods and training that gives them the authority to decide what is true and what is not? For several years people have tried to find out who exactly was behind the website Snopes.com. Only recently did they get to the bottom of it. Are you ready for this? It is run by a husband and wife team - that's right, no big office of investigators scouring public records in Washington, no researchers studying historical stacks in libraries, no team of lawyers reaching a consensus on current caselaw. No, Snopes.com is just a mom-and-pop operation that was started by two people who have absolutely no formal background or experience in investigative research.
David and Barbara Mikkelson pictured above; are from San Fernando Valley of California. They started their website 'Snopes' about 13 years ago. After a few years it began gaining popularity as people believed it to be unbiased and neutral. But over the past couple of years people started asking questions when 'Snopes' was proven wrong in a number of their conclusions. There were also criticisms the Mikkelsons were not really investigating and getting to the 'true' bottom of various issues, but rather asserting their beliefs in controversial issues..."<

You dislike it when "white" people call a thug a thug? Ask me if I care. And thug is not a racist term - only you make it a racist term. There are thugs of all races its a characteristic of one that imposes anti social and criminal actions upon others. Not a "black, Mexican, or white" thing at all - you can cry racism all you want that is what radical leftist like you hiding behind "moderate" tags do all day around here.
"What difference" "does it make?"
I want to know if the White House sent three representatives from the White House expecially for the funeral or where they already there with Holder.
If they were already there it would have been seen as rude, at least, to not go to the funeral.
I would think that after 6 years in office Obama would have learned to stay out of local matters and only worry about matters of national consequence, but he hasn't.
This President definitely has a blind spot where race is concerned.

Yesterday I actually e-mailed Snopes telling them they got it wrong. They actually contacted me in less than an hour standing by their claim that Chuck Hagel is part of the Obama White House staff.
Neither of the Mikkelsons have any knowledge how the military change of command works and who are staff and who are not. All of their research is done on the internet, usaully by googling. Basically they have no knowledge how to research.
For example you have an Army infantry division commanded by a Maj. General who has a staff. An Executive Officer, and Adjutant and a administrative officer S-1 , intelligence officer S-2, operation officer S-3, supply officer S-4, training officer and a communication officer. That's the Generals staff. Lets call the Maj. General Maj. Gen. Obama.
Next down the chain of command is the Regimental commander of a regiment who's commanded by a Colonel who happens to have his own staff comparable to the division commanders staff. That regimental commander is not a member of the Maj. Generals staff. Lets call the regimental commander Col. Chuck Hagel.
Snopes got snoped. They got it wrong, there were no members of the Obama White House staff present at General Green's funeral but there were three members of the Obama White House staff present at Brown's funeral.
Valleri Jarrett and Susan Rice are members of the White House staff, not Chuck Hagel.
