Grief in the Oval Office: Picture

released - as surviving students
return to class for the first time
since massacre

Daily Mail [UK] & Associated Press, by Staff

This photograph, released by the White House on Thursday, reveals the terrible moment when President Barack Obama was told the shocking news about the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The President, who has described the day of the shootings as the ‘worst day of my presidency,’ is seen bowing his head and closing his eyes as John Brennan, his deputy national security adviser, informs him about the tragic events unfolding in Newtown, Connecticut. In the wake of the tragedy, the president has tasked his deputy Joe Biden with leading a task force

Comments:
It´s always about 0bama. He and his regime are reprehensible! This was so unnecessary. They´re winding up for his Executive Order on gun control.

Why would a photographer be there for the moment he is told? More ridiculous, self-serving BS for his moronic followers.

Interesting body language that conveys nothing about shock or horror. Based on what I´ve seen from him, I´ll guess he was thinking "Crisis? Opportunity".

The presidential photographer follows the president everywhere - which is why I`m wondering why we haven`t seen the photo of Obama smoking out behind the WH.

Just remember folks---EVERYTHING in this admin. is processed--everything is as planned.

Including all staged events passed off as ´current events´.

I am not insensitive whatsoever, but this ´event´ at Sandy Hook is not all as it seems, as far as a stand alone one-time event. There will be fingerprints assigned to this tragedy the trail of which leads back to DC....

As I commented earlier this week, Fast and Furious failed; so try, try, again.

Can we finally impeach boy in ´13?

Where is the photo of him ordering the military to stand down and let the terrorists kill all the Americans?

Where?
Where are the survivors?

FTA: "This photograph.....reveals the terrible moment when President Barack Obama was told the shocking news about the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School."

Now how do we really know that for sure? Because they told us? And I agree with #3´s assessment.

There was a picture taken of President GWB, at an elementary school, on 9/11/01 when he first was told about the terrorist attacks.

Obama has said the Sandy Hook shootings were the worst day of his presidency. There had to be a picture of him getting the news, even if he was sitting on the back of a sofa inside the WH.

The Mail is laying on thy sarcasm with the biggest palette knife known to the art world. We are to believe that Obama happened to be half-sitting on the back of a sofa when he was given the news. Is he supposed to have fallen back in shock?

I wonder how long it took to stage the photo.

YES, THIS IS A PHOTO OP. Sorry to be yelling. A caller today to the Todd Schnitt show worked in the White House for years, retired now in Tampa. Todd had his producer check the caller out and was sure he was telling the truth. Caller said the Oval is basically only used for photo ops, there is a private office behind one of the doors where the president works. And he said yes, this is a photo op.

Theory: Maybe Black Toddlers Are Suspended
From Preschool More Because of Racism
Atlantic Wire, by Philip Bump    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/21/2014 3:17:57 PM     Post Reply
In 2011, over 8,000 kids were suspended from preschool — preschool! — in America. More than half were black, despite comprising less than half of the student population. Sure, we can entertain a lot of theories why this is the case, but I am going to go with this one: America has a problem with racism. The odds are probably better than even that you will be annoyed by that. Which is fine. I accept that response. And there are a lot of possibilities that could explain how this bit of data is an aberration. As the Associated Press reports, the

FBI, IRS, and Rhode Island law enforcement officials entered the Rhode Island State House on Friday, apparently to collect evidence from the offices of Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox. A spokesperson for the Democrat´s office said to the AP that his staffers weren´t informed why they were asked to leave the premises by state police. Fox´s office and his attorney declined comment on the incident, while the U.S. Attorney´s office would only say that law enforcement officials were carrying out two search warrants at the State House.

The White House has reportedly begun testing smartphones from Samsung and LG, perhaps indicating that BlackBerry may soon lose one of its most high-profile customers. Testing is only in the early stages at this point, but the White House internal technology team and communications agency are testing Android devices from the two South Korean phone makers, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cites an unnamed source. The implementation of Samsung or LG phones is still months away, but this is the first indication that the White House is preparing to move away from using BlackBerry.

Nearly half of callers to California´s health insurance exchange in February and March couldn´t get through and abandoned their call, state figures show. Those service woes could worsen as more people try to beat the March 31 deadline to get Obamacare coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Also Thursday, the Covered California exchange reported progress on another front: low enrollment among the state´s large Latino population. At its monthly board meeting, the exchange said 32% of health plan enrollees in the first two weeks of March described themselves as Latino. That was up from 18% during the first three months

The U.S. metro area with the lowest unemployment rate is a shale oil boomtown. The one with the highest unemployment rate houses the world’s largest solar plant. Energy policy experts are pointing to that dichotomy as evidence that job creation potential in the energy industry lies primarily with fossil fuels, despite the administration’s insistence on creating a “clean energy economy.” According to data released on Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Midland, Texas, has a 2.9 percent unemployment rate, the lowest in the country. Midland sits above the Permian Basin Shale, a massive formation that constitutes a large chunk of Texas’

President Barack Obama warned yesterday at a private home in Miami that Democrats "get clobbered" in midterm elections. "[T]he problem is not that the American people disagree with us on the issues. The challenge is, is that our politics in Washington have become so toxic that people just lose faith and finally they just say, you know what, I’m not interested, I’m not going to bother, I’m not going to vote," Obama told donors. "And that’s especially true during the midterms. During presidential elections, young people vote, women are more likely to vote, blacks, Hispanics more likely to vote. And suddenly a

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics.

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at
