The president flew to Connecticut to represent the nation in offering comfort to the town and survivors of the mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School killing 26.[Snip]"Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?” Obama answered No.
That address last night was pathetic. The fact that he had to give a 20 minute address during the football game was telling. He could have taken time during the 60 NEWS hour, but I guess he´s too important for that. He really didn´t say ANYTHING. We´re all adults. We know what happened and we are reacting to it in our own way. It appears that The President was, once again, going for the most impact for his Photo Op! Shame on him! Also, he needs to watch some video of Clinton crying. He was much better at tears on demand that Obama was the other day during his first news appearance.
Every time we hear the statements "These Tragedies Must End" or "This can never happen again" it is followed by some very poor laws. It´s often law that makes the problems worse instead of better. Or law that has unintended consequences that are worse than the original problem.
Thank the ACLU for fighting against some mental cases to be in institutions. They were all set free to fend for themselves or for families to take care of. Many families have suffered tragedy while taking care of a mentally disturbed relative. Many who are homeless now is because there is nowhere for them to go and be treated. From what I understand CT. rejected a bill last Feb. that would have taken some of these people into an outpatient type of treatment.
The tragedy in Connecticut is just a busy weekend in Chicago. The next time some liberal demands more gun control in response to one of these shootings, ask them why it is that you never see one of these deranged characters attempt a mass killing at a police station? The answer of course, is that there are a lot of people there who will shoot you if you tried it. So, is the answer to these shootings to further restrict the ability of law abiding citizens to protect themselves, and, in this case, the children in their care? Or is it to not only allow, but encourage, people to have the means to protect themselves and others from violent predators?
That fool of a president never ever speaks for me. Had he truly represented ME before those grieving families and friends, he´d have stayed home or at the very least bowed his head and bent his knees before the Lord to pray for ministering blessings of comfort. Obama NEVER speaks for me when he shows up like the ghouls in the media with their voyeurism. Teachers and administrators should be provided weapons training (like their precious diversity training) and allowed to conceal and carry. Problem solved.
The hot rhetoric of our times, from the most visiable of people,,"I won," "Revenge" "there will be blood in the streets," We know where your daughter plays soccer,( all in the news during the past two months)" box cutters at a rally in Lansing Michigan,and a hot dog venders cart ruined etc. and the gangster rap,violet movies,(just look at Christmas day opener, vidio games, "GD America!
He was not concerned about the other tragedies because he does not care about Christian deaths, and particularly American deaths. This time is different, however, as it comes at a good time for him to advocate gun control.
EXACTLY #5 and #27! While I´m not in any way minimizing what happened on Friday almost 50 million children have been murdered via abortion. So.....
"Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?"
I would say the answer is ´NO´.
Let´s put this in terms that 0bama can understand..... due to the left´s ´sacrament´ of abortion we now have millions upon millions of lost TAXPAYERS. We know how the left loves to tax. Goodness, if these children had been allowed to be born and to grow up many would be in the workplace paying into ´SS´, buying homes, autos, and other goods and services. Not to mention the voters who don´t exist either. (how many future progressives were lost). HHHHMMMMMMM??????
As everyone knows, California is the la-de-dah, laid-back land of liberalism that´s been Barack Obama´s political ATM for six years. Hollywood stars have loved him, fronted multi-multi-million-dollar fundraisers for him. The most populous state (home to 12 of every 100 Americans) has a Democrat governor again, two female Democrat senators and a Democrat super-majority in the state legislature that has yet to find a problem it didn´t want government making worse at great cost. In presidential politics California has been trending Democratic since 1992. [Snip] Now comes a stunning new poll revealing Obama’s California base has fallen out of love.
Never let a crisis -- or tragedy -- go to waste. So, here we are now with a weakened ObamaNation building an organizing event around the awfulness in Newtown, where a 22-year-old nut-job killed 20 innocent youngsters and six adult caretakers. No horrified parent or adult watching Connecticut a year ago needs reminding of what a national gut-kick that was. President Obama, of course, went to Newtown to utter another empty vow.
So, Barack Hussein Obama can tell where Americans are from just by looking at their faces. Imagine if he also knew their funny foreign names or detected defective English. How would Obama react if someone determined his birthplace by looking at that face of his? And what evil or good dreams lurk within that obviously wily Chicagoan´s mind. You didn´t see much about this Obama statement in the mainstream media last week. With the ObamaCare disaster all cleaned up, its website humming perfectly and the U.S. economy now roaring strongly, Obama lit out for West Coast fundraising.
According to the Obama White House, the first family consumed a Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, honey-baked ham, cornbread stuffing, oyster stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, greens, green bean casserole, dinner rolls and macaroni and cheese. Then, the family washed all that down with nine kinds of pies: huckleberry, pecan, sweet potato, peach, apple, pumpkin, banana cream, coconut cream and chocolate cream. For years now First Lady Michelle Obama has been pushing her program called "Let´s Move!" for more exercise and better foods. But Gallup reports Americans prefer “Let’s Eat!”
Hello, I’m Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. As we celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday, it’s important for us all to reflect on our many blessings. Family and friends immediately come to mind. But there are many Americans who will not be able to celebrate this holiday season at their home. Some are serving our nation overseas, thousands of miles away. And in their world, the creature comforts you and I take for granted -- things like running water and electricity -- are considered luxuries.
President Obama's weekly remarks: Hi, everybody. On behalf of all the Obamas — Michelle, Malia, Sasha, Bo, and the newest member of our family, Sunny — I want to wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. We’ll be spending today just like many of you — sitting down with family and friends to eat some good food, tell stories, watch a little football and. most importantly, count our blessings. And as Americans, we have so much to be thankful for.
The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they can not fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
