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.

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.

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.

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 1,000 soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan who have been killed because you restrict them from defending themselves.

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)...

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Some advice for Democratic candidates from consultants: Don´t use the word "recovery" in your speeches. Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron is reportedly "upset" and "bitter" because he feels that readers -- not the reporter who wrote the story -- took his comments that implied those who opposed President Barack Obama´s policies now wear "neckties and starched shirts" instead of KKK hoods out of context. And the reporter who wrote the story is claiming Aaron should not have to apologize for something he never said because Aaron was talking about CEOs, American society, and corporate America and not referring to a political party. Last week, in a story that appeared the day before Aaron was honored

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

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'

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

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that 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.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
