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.
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!
What about the 750,000 kids aborted each year in the U.S. who have "their whole lives ahead of them"? The president has no tears to shed for them. Maybe if abortionists used guns instead of scalpels...?
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.
As we´ve said time and again, it´s not the guns that kill people, it´s the people that kill people. You can make all the laws you want, but stupid people will continue to do stupid things. What are they gonna do - lock everyone up?!
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.

#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.
What #2 said. IMO, basic human decency just doesn´t apply to obama. BTW, "news-sources", please spare me the phony tears from the false prophet obama. If I NEVER hear one more "talking head" remind us that obama "as a father"... it will be too soon..
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.
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.
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.
Alligator tears from the wart hog. Where is his empathy and sympathy for the millions of babies not allowed to be born or those who survived after having scissors poked in the back of their little heads and were put aside to die in agony. Hypocrite.
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.
Woe to you, Pharisee, whitewashed tomb full of dead men´s bones!
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.
Christmas miracle or sickly sweet PR stunt? Either way, it´s unlikely these WestJet passengers care after they had their wildest holiday wishes granted during a flight across Canada. Travelers pitching up at Toronto Pearson and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airports for flights to Calgary were surprised when a virtual Santa Claus asked what they wanted for Christmas. A promo video sees a variety of passengers telling Father Christmas their dream gift.With their wishes made, the footage shows them merrily taking their place on the aircrafts.
Sen. Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, is under investigation for child pornography. The Republican Senator from Tennessee revealed Wednesday that law enforcement officers are searching Loskarn´s private residence. “I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned,” the Senator said. Alexander, 73, made the announcement on Wednesday, indicating he "was just informed by the United States Senate legal counsel’s office" of the search. The staffer has been placed on administrative leave without pay.
RENO, Nevada- A couple and four young children missing in frigid weather since they went on an outing to play in the snow on Sunday were found alive in a remote mountain range in Nevada on Tuesday huddled in their overturned vehicle, a sheriff´s dispatch supervisor said. The couple had taken their two children and the woman´s niece and nephew, who range in age from 3 to 10, to an abandoned mining camp in the Seven Troughs range of northwestern Nevada, Pershing County dispatch supervisor Sheila Reitz said. The six were found in good condition and were treated for exposure
The troubled son of a church pastor who is a spiritual advisor to Barack Obama has died in an apparent suicide. Father-of-three Isaac Hunter, 36, had been battling problems since resigning from a Florida megachurch he founded after admitting to an affair with a staff member last year. A judge also granted his wife a domestic-violence petition after claiming his erratic behavior and alcohol abuse had left her ´fearing for my life and the lives of our three children.´ According to court documents, Hunter had written an undated suicide note saying: ´I have become what I never wished to be,
A federal judge said General Motors Co is not required to pay $450 million to cover medical benefits for retirees, in a defeat for the United Auto Workers union. In a 36-page decision, U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn in Detroit said on Tuesday that the current GM did not assume any obligation for the payment, which the automaker had contracted to make two years before its June 2009 bankruptcy filing. The payment had been part of a June 2007 contract between the old GM, its former Delphi Corp affiliate and the UAW. It was not, however, included in a different
MOSCOW— A Russian Cabinet member says Moscow has reserved the right to use nuclear weapons in response to a conventional strike. Wednesday´s comments by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin carried by Russian news agencies reflected Moscow´s concern with prospective U.S. weapons. Weapons that have been developed in the U.S. under the so-called "prompt global strike" program would be capable of striking targets anywhere in the world in as little as an hour with deadly precision. Russia, which has lagged far behind in developing such weapons, has described them as destabilizing. Without naming the U.S., Rogozin said that those who "experiment
Pleasantly surprised and a bit shocked, I enjoyed religious Christmas carols playing in the elevator of a major hotel. Progressive bullies are relentless in their quest to repeal the celebration of Jesus´s birthday, Christmas, declared a federal holiday in 1870 by President Ulysses S. Grant. Illustrating the effectiveness of the progressives´ intimidation, anonymously, signs are being stealthily posted in public areas: "It´s OK to say Merry Christmas." The progressives´ assault on Christmas leads me to MSNBC-TV host Martin Bashir´s degrading and disgusting punishment suggested for Sarah Palin (i.e., that someone defecate in her mouth). While watching the deplorable MSNBC segment,
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
