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.

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

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.

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

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 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.

PALM CITY, Fla. – President Obama on Sunday displayed the freedom that comes with not having another election ahead of him, golfing with Tiger Woods in an enclave of privilege here along Florida’s blustery Atlantic coast. Since his reelection in November, Obama has been talking about the perils facing America’s middle class, highlighted in his State of the Union address last week. On Friday he visited a public high school in his hometown of Chicago, where he spoke in personal terms about the need to reduce gun violence and create jobs in the country’s troubled urban areas.

Obama summons congressional

President Obama summoned congressional leaders to a Friday summit at the White House in a last-ditch effort to protect taxpayers, unemployed workers and the fragile U.S. recovery from severe austerity measures set to hit in just four days. Also Thursday, House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) announced that he would call the House back into session this weekend. And in perhaps the most significant development, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for the first time was engaged directly in talks with the White House. He signaled an interest in cutting a deal.

With financial negotiations all but halted, President Obama was headed out of Washington on Friday evening for his annual winter vacation in Hawaii. Obama is likely to have a short trip this year; aides said he is scheduled to return Wednesday, a day after Christmas, to resume discussions with congressional leaders on how to avert the fiscal cliff. “Merry Christmas – because we didn’t get this done, I’ll see you next week,” Obama said after telling reporters he still had hope of striking a deal to prevent taxes from rising on the middle class next year.

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

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
