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’

Comments:
It is amazing how quickly Obama can organize some fundraisers to tack on to his "official" trips. No sense wasting a memorial service!

Mark my words ... Obama will just use his attendance at this event as yet another attempt to nullify the Second Amendment.

Just as Ft. Hood is a gun free zone, so too will Ohputter call for the nation to be a gun free zone. After all I heard Juan Williams discussing this and the facts that many of the recent mass killings using guns all had the same characteristics. They were done by people with verifiable serious mental health issues. They were done using "legal" guns, and they were all done in so called gun free zones, where the perps knew that there would be no one anywhere close that could stop them from doing maximum damage. So after his anti gun speech and blaming Republicans and posing for some photo ops with victims and their families in the hospital, it will be full on motorcade to the golf course, followed by fine dining and a concert by Snoop Lion till the wee hours of the morning. Then next day off to another fund raiser and another round of golf.

Not like he was going to go out of his way to go to Fort Hood.

From USA Today.....

"It´s a terrible tragedy what happened at Fort Hood," senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said during an appearance on CBS´ Face the Nation. "The president and first lady send their thoughts and prayers out to the victims and families and everyone on the base, and they´re going to actually travel down on Wednesday to the memorial ceremony."

The Obamas were already scheduled to begin a two-day trip to Texas on Wednesday to take part in Democratic campaign fundraisers in Houston. On Thursday, they are both scheduled to travel to the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum in Austin, where the president is to deliver remarks at a civil rights summit to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act.

His speech will be all about him. If I were going to listen to it, which I am not, I would do it with shots of vodka. One shot every time he says "I" or "Me." I would most certainly be drunk in about 5 minutes and would not suffer the rest of his tele-prompted nonsense.

My bet he will use this as a campaign speech promoting Ocare, min wage hikes global warming illegal immigration abortion and creating jobs in this booming economy as well as gun control and blaming Republicans for all the misery he is responsible for.

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
