President Obama:" If I had a son he'd look like Trayvon"

President Obama appeared in the Rose Garden today to announce his choice for the World Bank, Dr. Jim Young Kim.  Generally, the press will attempt to question or get a reaction from the the President by shouting questions during these short statements or brief announcements to the media.  And the President, as all Presidents in the past during these announcements, just walks off ignoring the media"s shouts.  Today, he unexpectedly stopped to answer a question concerning the tragic shooting death of 17 year old Trayvon Martin.  Personalizing his response, he stated "if I had a son he'd look like Trayvon".  Obama also stated " this tragic incident needs a thorough investigation".
