Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton Tweeted the helicopters people heard over Danbury today were an advance team setting up for a possible presidential visit early next week. "We don´t know when at this point," Boughton said. The helicopters visited Danbury Municipal Airport and other locations in the city. The mayor didn´t know if the helicopters visited Newtown yet. "Those helicopters you hear are the Presidential advance team. No details on what day the President is coming," was one of the mayor's Tweets. Airport Administrator Paul Estefan declined to say anything at all about the

I was wondering how long it would take for Zero´s photo op. Can´t he let them mourn in peace?

Very poor taste. Better for Obama to attend a memorial in Washington.
Besides, my guess is that the town is populated by one percenters.

That is the last thing those people need. They need space, family and time to start the healing process, which in this case will be most difficult. For him to go and turn this into the theater of the absurd will only make this worse.

Enough of this whole spectacle! Yes, it is a tragedy for those involved. But terrible things happen every day. On a scale of national importance, it is nowhere near as important as the deaths in Benghazi, which got virtually zero attention from the media.

Disgusting, repulsive, hideous, repugnant, vile...sickening.

One insane person commits a terrible, evil crime. With all due respect, this is NOT a national tragedy. Stop the exploitation, please. We the People are not responsible for this. The only people this involves and to which it is a TRUE tragedy are the ones who lost loved ones and/or friends and the family of the shooter. If one doesn´t know those involved or the victims, it is sick to enmesh oneself and act as if one personally lost someone. Empathy, certainly, but enmeshment, no. We have got to stop this "all in" mentality.

This one shooter is not indicative of the people of Connecticut nor the United States. We are not responsible for him and what he did, period. He was ill. It is very upsetting to see how easily some of my countrymen can be manipulated. And yes, with all this said, I wish those involved some grace and peace, if that is even possible in this horrific situation.

in Chicago EVERY week of the year. Exactly what purpose does it serve the victim´s families to have him visit? With Obama, it´s all for show and for politics.

The Media, the media,the emotionally guilty media. Fox has been the worst. Friday, I thought Meghan was very good in her reporting, but 24/7 has been very wearing on all viewers who have lost loved ones recently.

Is the media now espousing religion,prayer?

Why must the Producers of the Cables all feel compelled to intrude upon the grief of a small town whose citizens are suffering so?

At first , I was going to say that not even Obama would be so craven and insensitive as to intrude on the unspeakable grief of the families for political gain.
But, then I came to my senses.
Only Obama would be so craven and insensitive that he would dance on little coffins for political gain.
Maybe he doesn´t know that the election is over ?
He doesn´t have to campaign 24 /7.
Or is this his filthy way of trying to pressure Boehner ?
BTW- I broke down and watched Barry yesterday.
He did not cry or emote-in fact, he was bloodless.
He rubbed his eye and
the media described that as crying.

This goes beyond cruel. These families haven´t had a chance to comprehend what´s happened. I´m sure most of the parents are still expecting to see their child come tumbling down the stairs. Then a tidal wave of grief. He´s turning what should be a solemn moment into a spectacle. This is pure evil.

It´s hard to find that perfect backdrop like a historic New England church or a statue of Abraham Lincoln when you are playing the role of a saint. Maybe Hollywood can help with special effects and make up. They have been so supportive in the past. Lights, back lit halos, artificial tears. They can do it all.

Obamas to attend Fort Hood
memorial on 2-day Texas trip
Dallas Morning News, by Todd J. Gillman    Original Article
Posted By: grayjay- 4/6/2014 2:46:45 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — President and Mrs. Obama will visit Fort Hood on Wednesday for a memorial service after the most recent deadly shooting spree, the White House said Sunday. Army Spc. Ivan Lopez killed three soldiers and wounded 16 others before taking his own life on Wednesday, the second mass shooting at Fort Hood in the last five years. Obama also attended the memorial in November 2009 after a spree by Maj. Nidal Hasan. The Army psychiatrist killed 13, and has since been sentenced to death by a court martial. After visiting Fort Hood, Obama headlines fundraisers later Wednesday in Houston for the Democrats’

The White House systematically delayed enacting a series of rules on the environment, worker safety and health care to prevent them from becoming points of contention before the 2012 election, according to documents and interviews with current and former administration officials. Some agency officials were instructed to hold off submitting proposals to the White House for up to a year to ensure that they would not be issued before voters went to the polls, the current and former officials said.

NEW YORK- Michelle Obama and her daughters caught Broadway´s "The Trip to Bountiful" after spending part of the day watching tennis at the U.S. Open. The first lady and her girls slipped into their seats at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre just as the first act was starting Saturday night and received a huge ovation when they took their seats for the second act. The trio went back stage after the show and met the crew and cast, including Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr. Tyson stars in the Horton Foote revival as a widow who wants to revisit her old home in Bountiful

The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place. President Obama’s economic advisers and outside experts say the nation’s much-celebrated housing rebound is leaving too many people behind, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records weakened by the recession.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
