President Obama: ´Are
we really prepared to say
that we´re powerless in
the face of such carnage?´

Chicago Tribune, by Staff

NEWTOWN, Conn.— A mournful President Barack Obama said Sunday that the nation is failing to keep its children safe, pledging that change must come after an elementary-school massacre left 20 children dead. “What choice do we have?” Obama said. “Are we really prepared to say that we´re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?” In a vigil for the fallen, in a moment of grief that spread around the world, Obama conceded that none of his words would match the sorrow. But he declared to the community of Newtown: “You are not alone.”

Obama was doing a good job until he went politcal. It just wasn´t appropriate. He was there to console not to score political points.

Why does 0bama NEVER mention the carnage caused by a Muslim at Ft Hood? I guess that was not a tragedy. Oh well, I´m sure it´s just an oversight....

Obama calls the murder of 20 children a tragedy but blesses the killings of millions as a ´woman´s right to choose´.

He is a wicked man and intends to make this a wedge issue. The Democrats 2014 campaign to retake the House kicked off tonight in Newtown, CT.

As a parent/grandparent/greatgrandparent, I think we should start with the rap music/movies/video games, etc. that foster violence first!

We need to be able to defend ourselves.

I personally do not own a gun or want one, but I respect those who do and want to be able to protect themselves and their loved ones.

The disparity today that exists, that Obama has prospered through class and race warfare, helping/controlling some, and not caring about others.

We need God back in our schools and the 10 Commandments posted - Thou shalt not kill - would be good to see posted and to know that there is a God who created US and loves US, not for US to be told that we can take care of ourselves.

We have always placed our Faith/trust in God. Even our money confirms our inner knowledge.

Obama has caused more confusion/distrust in this country through his many ways of turning one against another.

Obama is more interested in his own personal well being - vacations/parties/golf courses, etc.

We need to "come together" for the betterment of everyone, knowing we are God´s creatures and He loves US.

Can we forget political correctness and just be civil and caring about our fellowman?

Pray together or the government will control every aspect of our lives. God is still our Savior!

We have become a third-world country overnight!

Answering President Obama - Are we really prepared to say that we´re powerless in the face of such carnage? We have been ever since he became president.

We need to live our Faith and not our Fear!God alone can/will free US from Obama´s self-rule!

He just can´t let go of class warfare! For him, what better way to cause rifts in the population but to call for a ban on guns and he does it through "suggestion". Why couldn´t he leave those people alone? They are suffering and all he does is put on a show. Why should we think he´s being honest and truly sorry! Don´t agree with #4. He is an evil man.

Have any of you listened to the vile stuff masquerading as rap music? Death, violence, name calling- words polite company.never uses.
The videos and games are bad... But 24/7 ear buds are in blocking any other messages. This goes beyond race and culture. It is the evidence of society´s demise.

Even as he lectures our nation, Barack Obama is still hiding behind Executive Privilege regarding his role in "Fast & Furious."

Why did Obama and Eric Holder put thousands of firearms into the hands of Mexico´s most violent drug cartels?

Because Obama and Holder wanted to attack our Second Amendment rights.

What did Obama and Holder achieve by arming these Mexican drug gangs?

They got over three hundred Mexican citizens murdered, as well as getting two American law enforcement officers killed as well....

Don´t lecture me on gun control, Barky, you damned fraud. You have the blood of HUNDREDS on your hands.

Word has it that he received a telegram from Tom Green for knocking him off the top of the list for "Worst Actor Ever".

You got it, Mr. President: we are indeed prepared to admit that we are powerless in the face of such carnage. And we think that symbolic, feel-good steps such as banning assault rifles are shallow, ineffective and a threat to our freedoms, since we do not for a moment believe that the banning of weapons will stop with assault rifles. We think the proposed remedy -more gun control- is far more dangerous in a different way to far more people than the disease, the use of firearms by criminals and lunatics to kill people. And we think that such emotion-driven legislation provides a false sense of security. Many of us who think this way neither own nor desire to own an "assault rifle." Many of us do not own a firearm at all. We just hate to see foolish reflex responses of emotion transformed into legislation that encroaches on our freedoms. We are prepared to accept a certain level of crime and lunatic mass killings as the price of liberty.

We are also realists. We know this game is lost. An electorate capable of putting a Barack Obama in the White House not once but twice will undoubtedly be led by its emotions and shallow thinking` to ban assault weapons. That will make them feel better - for a while, until something else happens that makes them want to ban other firearms too. They will most likely do that and keep doing it until at last they have voluntarily disarmed themselves entirely in the hope of staying safe and secure.

This statement provides another insight into the the thinking of 0bama. We´re a monolith of stupid, ignorant, uncivilized, and primitive citizens in need of a caring leader like him.

We are not powerless. There is so much to be done. But they only have one answer.

I am so UNconfident in the republicans these day - plus the news that a conservative supreme court justice wants to step down this year -- we certainly could lose more liberty, more rapidly, than even in the last 4 years.

Foul and vile. He should never have even gone to that town, bringing the chaos of a presidential visit to the already overwhelmed populace. And then to use a vigil of remembrance for politics -- as if anyone thought he wouldn´t do that, but still -- he is the lowest of the low. Despicable is not a strong enough word.

What a pig.

We are not powerless to face this problem. We are afraid of the political correct crowd. The easy way is to blame the gun. The hard way is to confront mental illness and keep guns out of THEIR hands. If it means locking them up for the safety of all, then we must do it. Obama will try to come up with some liberal claptrap to solve the problem. He is afraid to face the real problem.

I have such disdain for this man, there is nothing he could say or do with the exception of I resign, that would impress me.

Everybody needs to pack up and leave Newtown and let these people grieve. To interview the families and small children for tiny details is too much.

When the next tragedy strikes, they will be in the rear view mirror.

As usual the Blamer-In-Chief has to give gravitas to his photo op jaunt to Newtown. He made some crack about our no longer tolerating this sort of thing, as though we had been tolerating it all along and needed him to set us on the right path.

American parents have kept their children safe for a long, long time. Most of us don´t believe in destroying them in the womb, either. We know what he thinks about that. And about the ones who inconveniently survive late term abortions.

So shut up. Your speech was not comforting. It was insulting. And hypocritical coming from one such as you.

A Delaware building where convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell performed abortions is being turned into a emergency food and support center for low-income families. Lutheran Community Services purchased the building in Wilmington, formerly known as Atlantic Women’s Medical Services, to serve as its new headquarters -- giving the once notorious facility a chance to transform itself into a force of good. "It´s going to be a place of hope and life," Jean Warren, the group´s executive director, told FoxNews.com.

Every other major studio besides Universal had already closed their Texas distribution offices, instead dividing those duties between executives working in Los Angeles and New York.

Shootings on the Northwest, Near North and South sides left at least 10 people hurt since Saturday night, according to authorities. Authorities initially said a 19-year-old man fired on by police during a chase on the South Side suffered a graze wound to the elbow, which would have brought the total number of people shot to at least 11. About 7 a.m. this morning police said they determined the man´s injury was not a gunshot wound.

Six hundred workers are processing government pension papers in an underground bunker entirely by hand in a staggering example of state inefficiency that is costing taxpayers millions. Staff at what has been dubbed the ‘Crazy Cave’ take up to 61 days just to deal with one single case because of the archaic process that is the same speed as 37 years ago.

Elle Magazine published a story titled ´Meet the 10 Most Powerful Women in D.C.´ this month, but the piece only includes one right-leaning woman. It´s not clear why a fashion magazine believes it is qualified to determine who are the "powerful woman" in politics, since I sure don´t look for fashion advice from political publications. Alas, one thing we know for certain is that media has an ironclad sense of self importance. Senator Susan Collins is the lone GOPer who made the cut, according to Elle.

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger. Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

Quoting unnamed administration officials, CNN host Jake Tapper revealed that the White House is “concerned” that Russia could invade South and East Ukraine “possibly as soon as this weekend.” He said that, in spite of Russia’s assurances that the large numbers of troops and military equipment amassed along the Ukrainian border are there merely for training exercises, the White House believes that Moscow could be planning a broader incursion into Ukraine. “There is now real apprehension that Vladimir Putin could push even further into Ukraine, perhaps as soon as this weekend,” Tapper said. He quoted anonymous administration officials who are “concerned”

One of four gubernatorial candidates introduced to California Republicans recently is a registered sex offender who spent more than a decade in state prison, convicted of crimes including voluntary manslaughter and assault with intent to commit rape. (Snip) Champ, a little-known political neophyte from the Fresno County community of Tollhouse, did not directly mention his criminal past during his speech but said, "In my life, I´ve been held accountable because of my stupidity. I do not want anyone else to be enslaved because of their lack of knowledge." Champ´s rap sheet is lengthy. Court records show that in 1992,

Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are pressing the Department of Justice for more information about contact government lawyers reportedly made with Lois Lerner, the former IRS employee at the center of the scandal over the IRS’s targeting of tea party groups for special scrutiny. The fresh push from committee chairman Darrell Issa of California and committee member Jim Jordan of Ohio is a signal the GOP will continue to pursue possible contempt charges against Ms. Lerner after she invoked the fifth amendment right against self-incrimination on two occasions when called before the committee. “For over eight
