Mealy-Mouthed Obama Backtracks on Pre-POTUS Promise to Acknowledge the Armenian Genocide

When he was running for the top job back in '08, candidate Obama said this:
The facts are undeniable. ... [A]s President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide. ...  America deserves a leader who speaks truthfully about the Armenian Genocide and responds forcefully to all genocides. I intend to be that president.
He may have had the intent, but he seems to have had a spot of bother with the follow though. And today, on the 100th anniversary of the genocide, Obama is still refusing to utter the "g" word. But then, as Raymond Ibrahim writes, remaining silent while Muslims slaughter Christians is business as usual for this president:
But the president’s actions are consistent in other ways.  Put differently, it is no marvel that Obama denies the genocide of Armenian and other Christian minorities at the hands of Muslims from a century ago, when one considers that he denies the rampant Muslim persecution of Christians taking place today under – and often because of – his leadership.
