An emotional Obama: ´They had
their entire lives ahead of them´

NBC News, by Michale O´Brien

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/14/2012 3:58:17 PM

An emotional President Barack Obama led the nation in mourning the victims of an elementary school massacre on Friday, speaking from the White House following the shooting in Newtown, Conn. The president not only pledged to assist investigations into the shooting, but also became openly emotional upon reflecting upon the many school children killed or injured in today´s mass shooting. "The majority of those who died today were children -- beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10-years-old," he said, pausing to wipe away a tear.

Words from politicians are like slime from snakes.

obama, you need to stay away from these people and let them grieve without you inserting yourself into everything. Why must you always do this?

Decency would have dictated that this hideous opportunist keep quiet while the situation is still unfolding.

But instead: Never let a crisis go to waste.

I listened to this on the radio.
He sounded like he was reading minutiae from the pages of a company´s annual report.

Oh - and he also claims that ´now is not the time to gave a discussion about gun control´... but Carney had this to say:

"The president may be making some hard decisions in the coming days about our 2nd Amendment right, and that some Americans may not support his decision."

HIS decision? It isn´t HIS decision to make!

FTA: We´re going to have to come together to take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics...

He may have been emotional, but it was an incredibly inappropriate time to even mention politics. Of course nothing is surprising coming from 0bama.

The prevention was given thousands of years ago in one simple commandment:
"Thou shalt not kill."
Perhaps this little line could be brought back into our schools--maybe just before the line about how to put on a condom.

Yeah, the sociopathic whore in the White House breaks all land speed records racing to a podium if he can insert himself in history, whether he is falsely accusing a white policeman of racism for arresting a foul-mouthe, uncooperative black Harvard professor, ridiculously comparing Travyon Martin (a mixed martial arts devotee and urban thug) to what a son of his would look like, commemorating Rosa Parks by having a photo of *himself* in her bus, and now shedding a tear on camera before anything is really sorted out in Connecticut.

I loathe the Marxist Mulatto, the Leftist Puppet, the Alinsky Slave, the Affirmative Action Poster Child for White Guilt, with the heat of a gazillion exploding supernovas.

Wolf and some White House reporterette were just gushing over Obama - how he was so emotional, wiping away tears and they had never seen a prez get so emotional. I guess they have forgotten about George Bush who appeared to really be crying and really care. Obama´s little drama was totally fake.There were no tears, no catch in the voice - just a flat line speech which he read and a wipe of his eyes on cue. What a disgusting display!

Obama is coming after your 2nd Amendment Rights. He and his crew will use this sorrowful situation as a crowbar against our 2nd Amendment. Consider this - If someone, teacher, administrator or custodian in the Newtown. CT school had had their own firearm maybe the situation might be different this afternoon. Evil people will find a way to commit murder and mayhem. The poor innocents will have no clue as they perish.

June 14, 2008: That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.” -- Barack Obama in the Wall Street Journal by Staff.

In my school in NC a lock down means NO ONE, even if you know them, comes in while in lock down - too bad this was not the policy here. I refuse to let ANYONE in, even it´s my own son.

There has been no mention of the millions of babies the dimfecal leftist have tortured and murdered. The law abiding abortionist (murderers) no doubt do not use firearms since that would violate break local commie anti-gun and down with the Second Amendment ordinance laws.

I´m giving Obama a pass on this one. Had he stayed away and said nothing he would be blamed. He has young children, and I do think he was affected by this; how couldn´t you be.

As regards guns and gun laws, the criminals will find a way to get automatic weapons into this country and they will be bought and sold on the street.

Today on Drudge I read that in China someone had slashed 22 children.

#27, I think your points are right on. Those who fight and push to make sure our public school children are not allowed to honor their Christian faith in any way are also the first to say "Why did God allow this to happen?" They want to blame The Lord God for the evil perpetrated by people controlled by satan.

It´s not gun control, it´s control of the mentally ill that we need.
Every horrific incident like this has one common denominator.
The weapons always vary.
But, the shooters are always young men with a history of unstable and antisocial behavior.

There was a mass shooting of little children in Dunblane, Scotland in 1996. Sixteen children murdered.
In 1997, The Firearms Act was passed after a year of media-driven public petitions and guns were effectively banned in the U.K.

This is what Obama is after. Fast and Furious and the movie theater shooting were not enough...it had to be little children.
We are in danger of losing what remains (and it ain´t much these days) of our Bill of Rights.

I have been in tears all day over the deaths of these children. Though I know they are in the arms of Jesus, the parents are left in unimaginable grief, and there is little any of us can do for them right now except pray.

But bear in mind, while we pray...the evil that is in this administration is plotting.
They will use this monstrous tragedy...they will use it every way they can and we will all suffer the consequences.
Be vigilant.

Very true, #34. Think of the weirdo rambling on YouTube and the "Joker" guy with the orange dye in his hair. Both have been diagnosed as psychotic/schizophrenic. That´s a common thread in any mass killing.

Society needs to rethink caring for and managing the behavior of the dangerously mentally ill. There is no place in society for them, and if those who don´t kill others die because of their vulnerability. Institutionalization is a humane solution for these people.

And still, his speech was full of "I" statements and how it effected him.

This tragedy is made worse (if possible) by the transparent glee on the left at finally having a way to institute gun control, ´for the children´.

He "cares" only to the extent he can exploit this to a political advantage; no more, no less.

Remember, he didn´t care enough about Ambassador Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, or Glen Doherty, to send them aid while they were still alive and were under siege.

Do you think he expends any emotional energy for persons in Connecticut that he doesn´t know, whether children or not? Obama has emotions only for his narcissistic self, no one else. In this regard he is mentally ill.

How very sad for the families of these victims. The random events where these things happen seems tragic, but cannot be avoided completely, no matter what is done. But that won´t stop the do-gooders from trying, mostly out of emotion, but many out of a desire for control, like Obama and his Leftist associates. Better to subjugate an entire nation in an effort to stop random shootings; 1984´s condition of super government control will be hastened by the reaction to this. China does this to an extent (no guns allowed), yet there remains mass killings with other instruments. And their population is essentially living within a mental and geographic prison, which begs the question of whether that´s preferable to death. Live free or die, a once proud statement, and one still on a license plate back east, is becoming hollow to the core with half the population of this nation. They have no sense of history or perspective. This is a very sad story, time for grief, not for instant solutions dripping with emotion.

We don´t need to be reminded by President Obama that these dear children and their families belong to the larger American family. We have lived though horrible tragedies before and we know how to respond to them. We have pulled through previous shocking disasters with calm, determination, charity, and action and we did this without President Obama´s instructions. We mourn these precious children and we grieve with their suffering families without reservation and without regard to political persuasion. President Obama should stand back and let the American people quietly respond to this latest situation appropriately, just as they have always done.

When a person is seriously grieving, the tears come from the inner part of the eye, not the outer part which obama was wiping away. That type of tear is a "Hollywood" tear, manufactured for sympathy.

Obama amazes me. His eyes looked dry and don´t most people cry from their inner eye?
After watching him for the past week or two waltzing around with a big smile on his face and partying and golfing as our country headed for disaster, at least he mustered an effort to appear to be sad during this awful time.

Thank you #9, beautifully said, but no matter what, please don´t let that supernova heat consume you. For example, today I am trying very hard to find some comfort in the fact that certain states are fighting against everything this anti-American pox is inflicting on our nation. As long as our best and bravest are struggling overseas, I feel we can´t completely give up.

As for those in CT, I will pray for the departed and for those left behind, that they receive the support they need to carry on in this life.

This is one big crisis, full of short term emotion, that the Obama crew is not going to allow to pass without them attempting to push through Congress, or administratively ordering a lot of new gun control measures.

Gun control backfired politically on the Democrats the last time they tried it and that could easily happen again. What they should be doing is enhancing the background check process to keep mentally defective people from purchasing firearms. That might not have helped in the Connecticut mass shooting, because it appears that his mother may have been what amounts to a firearms straw purchaser for the perpetrator by purchasing and registering guns in her name for him and it looks like that irresponsible action cost her her life.

I thought I couldn´t feel any sicker after hearing about the horror of today.

Then the Narcissist-in-Chief gets up and does the Crocodile Rock while trying to make it all about HIM.

As so many of you have rightly said: Where are his tears for the babies and mothers murdered by legal abortion??? So far from weeping for those deaths, he wants us to be forced to PAY the hit men to murder them.

So did the over 1,000 soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan who have been killed because you restrict them from defending themselves.

This man is cold and without a soul. He has had over five years to prove this and nothing he does will make me believe differently. Were it not for revenge, he would have no emotion. Prove me wrong , please.

#55, I think Boehner is truly tenderhearted and that his tears are real - and inconvenient for him since he´s ridiculed so much about it. Not at all sure about the prez´s though, and it´s indeed unbelievable how the media has been carrying on about them - and never a word about how wooden and unfeeling he always seems. He´s just their little prezzie & don´t you dare say a word against him.

Love is truly blind. (sigh)...

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) of then White House Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel. “Requiring the Census director to report directly to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a

Just in time for tax deadline day, a new Gallup poll finds that a majority of Americans -- 52 percent -- say they pay too much federal income tax, while 42 percent say they amount they pay is "about right." Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago. While a slim majority of Americans say their federal tax burden is too high, roughly the

Huge developments in the last week – like IRS official Lois Lerner receiving a criminal referral from the House Ways and Means Committee and e-mails proving she fed tax information on a targeted group to the staff of Rep.

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes?

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
