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.

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.

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

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

She may not look anywhere near her 76 years but Jane Fonda says she is well aware of her age. The Hollywood legend – who has made her career in an industry which isn´t exactly kind to aging actresses - admits she has been brought to tears on more than one occasion recently as she comes to terms with her own mortality. In a thoughtful blog post entitled ´Crying´, which has since been removed, Jane wrote: ´[I´ve been thinking], how come my tears are so close to the surface? And I’ve come to feel it has to do with age

“It’s Time”. That’s the message seen for the past few weeks on the 12 Years A Slave billboard as you drive on to the 20th Century Fox lot. And since the film earned nine Oscar nominations it has frequently been the slogan of choice for the Fox Searchlight contender in newspaper and television ads. A highly emotional close-up of star Chiwetel Ejiofor as the man forced into slavery and just two words to accompany it: “It’s Time”. (Snip) It’s Time for a serious film about slavery to win Best Picture?

A tale of two Marylands: Western Maryland and the rest of the state. Fed up with high taxes and gun control, some people want to break away and go it alone. Mary Bubala explains why they’re trying to form their own state. There’s a storm brewing over the beautiful mountains and valleys of Western Maryland. More and more people in those five counties say Governor Martin O’Malley is out of touch and they want to break away from the rest of the state. “I can’t imagine Maryland without Western Maryland,” said Governor Martin O’Malley.

Two hungry fan bases and the wealth of the New York metropolitan area had some guessing that Super Bowl XLVIII would turn out to be the most expensive ticket in Super Bowl history. However, judging from the reaction of the resale ticket market in the past 24 hours, it could turn out to be one of the least expensive. On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league´s official resale site. That´s $409 cheaper than it was

A former California Little League baseball coach has filed a civil summons against a 14-year-old player and his parents for allegedly injuring him during a post-game celebration last year. Former Lakeside Little League coach Alan Beck told Fox40.com the incident occurred last spring, when the teen threw his helmet up in victory after scoring a winning run, allegedly striking and tearing Beck´s Achilles tendon. The lawsuit seeks $500,000 for pain and suffering and more than $100,000 for lost wages and medical bills. Beck told Fox40.com he only wanted his attorney to pursue $20,000

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K
