Obama 'Shocked, Outraged:' Doc-Slaying
swamppolitics ^ | May 31 | Staff

Posted on 05/31/2009 3:51:56 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

President Barack Obama voiced shock and outrage this evening over the slaying of a Wichita, Kan., abortion-provider, Dr. George Tiller.

Tiller, who remained one of the nation's few providers of late-term abortions despite decades of protests and attacks, had been several years shot before. This time, the shooting as he served as an usher at his church today was fatal.

"I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning,'' Obama said in a statement issued by the White House this evening.

Sibelius lost one of her biggest contributors. We’re talking about literal “blood money” here.

how long before the draconian executive orders, the national guard escorts at abortion sites, secret service for the “doctors,” — is there any limit to insanity? (it’s a rhetorical question).

Well zero better be shocked & outraged, because if he keeps going like he is, he is going to cause more of it to happen with his radical agenda. I don’t see murder being the answer to anything, but this WH is causing the sociopaths & the normal folk to do things they might not normally do.

Looking out for the people...my butt!

RIP Mr. Tiller.

Why is anyone “shocked” that an individual who terminated human lives for money is himself terminated ?

Why is a person who is responsible for possibly tens of thousands of deaths treated as a victim?

He reaped what he sewed. That`s it, that`s all.

And Obama is not shocked by the brutal slaying of children, women, police officers, border patrolmen, etc by African American and Hispanic thugs and gang members? Only be the slaying of a mentally ill doctor that performs partial birth abortions?

Obama, your moral compass is soooooo screwed up.

Why is there never an outcry for us to understand the motivations of the perp in a case like this? We always hear this call from the dummies in the press if the crime involves a child rapist or a murder from some perceived aggrieved racial class. But for this? We only get demagoguery and a demand for a rapid and swift execution ... and a call to end some freedom enjoyed by Americans not involved in any way in the crime.

I, for one, am tired of this. Arrest the perp. Try him and punish him. But spare us the hysterical exploitation of this crime by the communist left.

I’ve long wondered what it would take to get the normally unflappable and unemotional Obama angry and emotional. Now I know: the murder of a serial baby butcher.

The thought had definitely crossed my mind but I don't know enough yet. One thing is clear. The killer has seized at least two weeks of TV coverage and the democrats will use it to full effect.

Shrug. It was a 271st trimester abortion. The question should be, had Dr. Tiller survived the attack, would 0bama support his getting medical treatment?

Just a sneakin' suspicion at the convenience of the facts as we know them so far.

Tiller was getting to be a problem for the pro-aborts. He was an ugly face on an ugly practice, and was getting slowly put out of business by legal means. Bad attention was being focused on Tiller, and support for life was on the uptick.

Now the guy is gunned down in cold blood IN CHURCH. Instant martyr. Ugly face becomes victim face. Pro-lifers get associated with the bombers and other killers.

I thought that was curious as well. He's shocked at the slaying of an abortionist, but doesn't seem to mind abortion.

There's a disconnect there.

Aside from “killer Tiller” being an abortion doctor, he’s no different than any other citizen in the media.

Why, then, does Obama need to respond to this? Why is it important for him to mention it?

I’m telling you, he knew. They’re trying to keep something off the front pages. Watch and listen to him lie carefully.

Obambi already knows the motive. The FBI arrested the killer hours ago.

TILLER WAS SPAWNED FROM HELL & TO HELL HE SHALL RETURN! It is not my character to be cruel to anyone, dead or alive.
The man is evil, & God will have His folly with Tiller!

Is this another “crisis” that should not go to waste?
How convenient.

Seems strange how incidents pop up just in time to help the left.

I don't agree with what the Killer of Tiller the Baby Killer did but it reminds me of a quote used on a Twilight Zone episode, “you don't murder a murderer, you execute them.” Just a remembrance of Twilight Zone.

Was he playing golf when he issued that statement? He seems to know that this murder is related to the abortion issue, even though no evidence has been revealed linking the murder to Tiller’s abortion antics.
