Obama: ´Our hearts are broken´ for
families of Connecticut shooting victims

Fox News, by Staff *

Original Article

Posted By:PChristopher, 12/15/2012 12:37:33 AM

An emotional President Obama, wiping away tears and choking up as he spoke, said Friday that "our hearts are broken" for the families of the victims in the deadly mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school. The president, hinting at possible legislation, pledged "meaningful action" to prevent more killings in the future. The president addressed the tragedy during remarks at the White House Friday afternoon, as details continued to emerge.

Comments:
* The Associated Press Contributed to the Report

What a phony. I´ll bet he doesn´t remember the name of the Libyan Ambassador he helped murder by failing to render proper assistance.

He´s crying for joy because now he has an excuse to start his anti-gun agenda.

There is little room in Abu Bin Bama´s heart for anyone but Abu Bin Bama.

He performed very well reading his notes. I didn´t feel it was from the heart but then I don´t expect much from him.

What a phoney is right! Just because he kept putting his finger up to his eye, I sure didn´t see any tears. Reading his script, pausing for several seconds and touching his eye didn´t cut it for me. No emotion whatsoever!

They are thrilled that this happened. And, what´s scary is they should be. All they care about is scoring their political points and this is an easily manipulated event to aid them. They don´t care about those kids. They don´t care about anyone but themselves. They want control and power and they want to make us powerless.

Another mass shooting in a "gun free zone". Go figure.

It´s really sick but they will not let this tragedy go to waste. It has started quickly this time. Milking it for all it´s worth.

Scum.

I imagine Mr. Obama is feeling sadness, just like any parent.

He was reading a script. The great orator of our time can´t go on without a script.

Indeed he and his political allies will make hay of this.

Here´s some harsh reality... more kids were killed today by drunk drivers. More babies were aborted today. Bet on it. Where´s the outrage?

(My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims in Newton. I can´t imagine the grief they are feeling. May God somehow give them comfort.)

In order for his heart to be broken, it would first require that he have a heart.

If he is so upset, why is he dancing on the not-yet-dug graves of these children?

from the standard bearer for the murder of over a million babies in the womb every year, and even after delivery. not a tear for those innocent babies from him.

but he couldn´t let go the opportunity to highlight this tragedy, knowing his foot soldiers would be railing against guns in his wake. it is all about the agenda.

Maybe it was just me but Obama looked very weird at this presentation.You can´t help but to be cynical about everything Obama does so you have to wonder if this was a stunt to push for more gun laws.

Exploiting these babies deaths while there´s still mass grieving isn´t above the liberal´s pale.It´s just another notch in their war on the Constitution.

To make things even worse,there´s probably lawyers waiting to pounce on this.

How many Mexican citizens are dead because Barack Obama insisted on selling firearms to Mexico´s most violent drug cartels?

How many Mexican children are dead owing to Obama´s actions?

Does Obama feel "heartbroken" over the 300+ lives lost in Mexico because of his "Operation Fast & Furious"?

And now, the same man who forced American gun dealers to sell weapons to the Mexican drug cartels....

....is going to spend the next six months lecturing us on the dangers of gun violence.

What a fraud you are, Wise King Barky.

What a contemptible hypocrite.

Fake emotion, fake (and invisible) tears, fake sympathy. This utterly dishonest man has been craftily bringing hurt to millions of families across the once fruited plains, and doing it on purpose. He does not deserve the chance to even pretend to console these bereaved families in Connecticut.

Such an impressive show of firepower and manpower - well after all the little bodies had fallen and the smoke had cleared. Everyone just call 911. When every precious second counts, the police are so many minutes away.

600 small children on site everyday and not one responsible adult. Not one responsible adult with basic firearms training and a secured, accessible weapon. Even one locked in a safe or briefcase would have made all the difference in those first precious seconds.

This should have gone down as the internet cafe situation did last July. In Florida.

Zero weapon tolerance on school property means even a plastic knife in lunch bag gets a kid in trouble.

I reminded everyone guns dont kill, people kill people. A gun is the tool used- I also reminded my criends that a concealed weapon permit would have stopped such a big scale shooting. Also, many schools have lockdown procedures. I am a bit surprised a lockdown wasnt called.

From what I read, the principal is the one who buzzed him in, because she recognized him. Then she was the first one he shot (or one of them).

Apparently it was his mother who had the guns. If she bought them, there´s no way any mental illness issue would have been recognized during the gun purchase. Wait for this fact to be jumped on for broader control.

I also read that the older brother hadn´t seen his younger brother since 2010.

I watched Obamas speech. I felt nothing as he talked. He can´t speak from his heart without reading it, and his voice held no warmth.

I am going to agree with obama on this one, it is time for meaningful action on this. No more nonsense with partisan politics and misdirection. We start calling it what it is...senseless mass murder. Get right to the root of the problem, the desensitizing of the public to murder by violent hollywood films, vicious video games and hateful rap music. Ban all of these films, games and rap music. Sieze all profits from these merchants of death, just as we sieze the assets of drug dealers. Drag people who revel in this evil into a court of law and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law, for example, jamie fox who bragged about "killing all the white people in the movie".

For that matter, let´s not even wait for politicians to get up to speed. We need to start a class action suit, just like those used so effectively against the tobbacco industry, to strip every last penny from movie producer, actors, video games companies , rappers and all of these blood soaked vermin. The legal precedance has been set, I know of three scientists who can provide any kind of evidence neccesary, (Hanson, Mann and Jones). It is high time to hold the cultural cult of death accountable...and more importantly hold obama to his word to stop these mass murders, no matter how much it hurts the hollywood cabal that supported him.

Nice to see that Billy Jeff taught Zero the Ron Brown tear-faking shtick.

Zero´s act was completely phony, devoid of any true emotion. Isn´t this the same Zero who voted for an infanticide law in Illinois? Where´s his bleeding heart for those children? Where´s his bleeding heart for all the children Planned Parenthood slaughters every day? As #10 said, where´s his bleeding heart for all of the people killed from Fast and Furious?

I grieve for the victims of this tragedy, but just when I think my level of disgust with this low class, lowlife hypocrite who is infesting the WH can´t get any higher, Zero comes through with another despicable performance.

Fox is unwatchable anymore. Their coverage of this issue was no different than msnbc. They played along with Obama who we know is just looking for another wedge issue that will return Nancy Pelosi to the speakership. Obama intends to blame this on Republicans even though all off these crazy shooters have been unemployed left wing nuts.

There were NO tears! Look again. He had no watery eyes and there were no tears. He simply put a finger up to his eye and sort of pretended to wipe. Even Fox was fooled. This is a cold-hearted man and if there were tears, I´ll eat my hat. To make sure you got it, O put his finger up again and wiped fake tears. This was so fake! Prayers for the poor children and their parents and prayers for a nation that has an anti-Christ for a president. Yeah, I know that´s extreme, but many, many folks are scared.

This tragedy has been heart wrenching and it is just the beginning. As more facts emerge, it will be devasting to hear what it was like in the last moments of these precious children´s lives. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims who are under the weight of such a heavy burden and loss. I pray that God will bring comfort and peace to what is going to be unimaginable grief.

I also hope that those who would try and score political points from this tragedy would suffer swift condemnation for their cold blooded use of this loss of life to advance their agenda. Honor the victims and their families and let this community grieve.

Obama is the last person who should be speaking publicly about this wanton violence. He is out 24X7 encouraging people to be angry, delight in being a victim, and he has even recently used the word "revenge". No President has ever even occasionally swayed into the lane of hate and envy that obama charges down daily at full speed.

Obama shares the blame for this tragedy.

Worst President ever, nobody else close.

Have to strongly disagree with #19 ""I am going to agree with obama on this one, ""

obama may not be the root cause (mental illness is the root cause). But opportunistic politicians like obama greatly contribute to this problem. obama has advanced in power only by a "divide and conquer" strategy. He tells his 51% they are victims, does it every day. Their failures are not their fault, somebody else did it to them. obama is inciting rage. The fact that some mentally ill people quite a bit further than raising taxes on the wealthy is irrelevant. obama is responsible for inciting rage.

Please count up how many times this has happened since obama first showed up, 2008. Just had the shooting in the movie theater. The congresswoman in AZ. Shooting in the Army base TX. Others I have forgotten. More than one a year. And it is out of control since the DEMS took power 1992, Clinton years. Post Office shooting, Amish school girls, etc.

The Dems must take a lot of the blame. Constantly telling everybody to be angry. Government inspired violence. Never heard Ronald Reagan telling anybody to ever be angry.

This must mean allowing concealed handgun carry on any school campus, right? If anyone confronted by this psychopath had a concealed pistol, a lot of the dead kids would be alive, right now.

Our government is broken.

Just like in Benghazi, people in charge of innocent lives should be armed to the teeth in today´s world to deal with crazies like this. The shooter could have just as easily dumped gallons of gasoline at each exit of the school and started a fire, probably with more fatalities, but the libs will blame the whole thing on the guns.

denying children under the age of 15 health care, denying the handicapped, and the elderly healthcare, encouraging and paying for abortions is the same as killing innocent people. the difference is that a gun is not used.

obama wiped away tears because he really "cares." He cares because he´s a far left democrat. All he has to do is say he cares for his gullible, useful idiots to respond in unison about how much he cares. Of course any sensible person knows the tears were fake, part of another staged campaign event. Further on the cynical side, did he wipe away any tears on 9/11 2001? Doubtful. I won´t go so far to say he was secretly thrilled when his kindred spirit palistinians danced in the streets in celebration of the murders of 3000 Americans. It´s just that there is no chance he was angry about the terrorist assault as millions of real Americans still are. After all, terrorism, according to zip, is secondary to their poverty.

The names of the six-member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order, records show. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, who had previously ordered the jurors´ identifying information be kept confidential, granted access to the names in a ruling March 21. Zimmerman´s defense asked the judge in June to keep the names secret until six months after the verdict. (Snip) Attempts to reach the jurors by phone and in-person Thursday were unsuccessful.

OH NO! Obama may have to cut third vacation

President Barack Obama, his wife and the first daughters may have to cut their latest vacation short because of Russia’s meddling in Ukraine. The Obama family’s current plan for the weekend is to escape the cold, snowy doldrums of Washington, D.C. for some rest and relaxation in sunny Key Largo, Fla., reports the Daily Mail. However, despite Obama’s earnest invocations of international law, pro-Russian forces and the Russian government are making swift military and political moves in Ukraine’s Crimea region. Consequently, the Key Largo holiday could be in peril. “It is possible the president may return to the White House

Cop-killer case sinks
Obama Justice nominee

Senators blocked President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division Wednesday in a bipartisan filibuster, with opponents saying his history defending a convicted cop-killer in the Supreme Court made him a poor choice. The defeat of Debo P. Adegbile, who as an attorney for the NAACP backed appeals by former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, is a major blow to Mr. Obama. Democrats changed the rules last year to overcome filibusters with just 50 votes, but Majority Leader Harry Reid couldn’t even muster all of his own troops Wednesday.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
