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.

Sorry.

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.

I can see an Executive Order regarding guns.

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´.

Condolences to the many families whose lives have been destroyed by a sick individual.

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 300 Mexicans killed by the weapons you sold to the drug cartels. So did the American rancher and American border guard. So did the 4 men killed in Benghazi. So did the over 1,000 soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan who have been killed because you restrict them from defending themselves.

Lemme see- so far, I found two articles about this ´show of emotion´. The first didn´t contain a video and the second( NBC) for some reason wouldn´t let go to full screen to get a closer look at those ´tears´.
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)...

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Obama: Russia doesn´t
want war with US

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016. Mr. Perry, who began serving as governor in December 2000 and who leaves office in January 2015

9/11 Victim Families: Obama
Administration Sabotaging Trials

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

What Do They Show?

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed. The email below documents a call from the Department of Justice about whether non-profits that “lied” about doing political activity

MSNBC Panel Hits ´Offensive´
Republican ´Extremism,´ GOP

On the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, far left host Al Sharpton berated what he viewed as "extreme" and "intolerant radical views" of Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Mississippi and North Carolina as he highlighted comments that he considered "offensive." Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates. Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC: AL SHARPTON:

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

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

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
