Does he weep for the children he kills?

Barack Obama brushed away what appeared to be tears during his speech in Newtown CT in the aftermath of the massacre. The Washington Post slobbered all over itself slobbering over Obama:

President Obama, so often cool and unemotional, struggled to maintain his composure Friday as he addressed a nation reeling from a mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.

“The majority of those who died today were children — beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old,” Obama said partway into a four-minute statement.

Then he paused, tilting his head down and looking at his notes, for 12 long seconds. He wiped a tear from his left eye.

One imagines that is as it should be, but little attention is given to the deaths of children in theaters of war- the children who die in drone strikes. Obama's drone strikes. Robert Greenwald wrote about that at the Huffington Post:

During my recent trip to Pakistan as part of our upcoming documentary film, Drones Exposed, I was struck most by the stories told to me by children who had experienced a U.S. drone strike firsthand. The impact of America’s drone war in the likes of Pakistan and Yemen will linger on, especially for the loved ones of the 178 children killed in those countries by U.S. drone strikes.

War Costs’ latest video (with accompanying report) brings attention to the children who have died as a result of drone strikes. The video names some of the children who perished in these strikes, and points out the obfuscation tactics of American officials who will not own up to the significant amount of civilian casualties that have occurred due to this legally- and morally-dubious policy.

In addition to the video, War Costs offers this report detailing the effects of drone strikes on children. The findings come mainly from the diligent investigative reporting of TBIJ and the groundbreaking reports on the impact of drone strikes by Stanford and New York University researchers (Living Under Drones: Death, Injury and Trauma to Civilians from US Drone Practices in Pakistan) and researchers at Columbia University (The Civilian Impact of Drones: Unexamined Costs, Unanswered Questions).

In an effort to compel answers about why these innocent civilians have died without acknowledgement or explanation from the U.S. government, War Costs is calling on the U.S. House of Representatives to debate and pass Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s bill that calls for more transparency regarding U.S. drone strike policy.

Indeed.

According to the Bureau for Investigative Journalism, 176 children in Pakistan, 24-35 children in Yemen and 1-3 children in Somalia have been killed in drone strikes.

It seems that even speaking of it ends a military career:

He is a ghoul who uses the broken bodies of children to advance his liberal agenda.

He is wiping a fake tear away while demonstrating fake sadness. If every White child in the U.S, were murdered he would not be in the least unhappy. That is the type of Satanic being we elected to the Pesidency of the United States.

We shall forever bear the scar and shame as the ones who did it.

The stench of politicization just continues to pour forth from Washington, and especially this reprobate. He will politicize ANYONE AND ANYTHING to support his anti-American agenda.

So, what is new, right ??

If I had voted for him, I would feel guilt. But I refuse to accept guilt for his election. Let those who did vote or refuse to vote consider their own shame and guilt. It is just beginning.

Tears come from the tear duct inside the eye, not furthest from the opposite side like Zero was pretending to wipe.

Why can’t the sock puppet speak from the heart without a prepared piece of paper or teleprompter? Because the liberal fascist usurping fraud fills his days with sodomite sex and drug use. He’s not running anything, answers no questions, appears in a daze, and has no leadership ability.

Reminds me of the movie THE UNTOUCHABLES. When Capone is watching the Opera PAGLIACHI, at the saddest moment he is crying, he gets word a rival is dead. He continues to cry with a smile on his face.

Clinton caused the deaths of a larger number of innocent children in Waco in 1993, in order to get an embarrassing news story out of the news. The media dutifully accepted Janet Reno's meaningless acknowledgement of responsibility and devoted their attention to demonizing the leader of the cult.

Of the 300 Mexicans killed because of the guns Obama gave to the Mexican drug cartels, how many were innocent children?

Of course there is something particularly horrible about what Adam Lanza did, killing young children for no reason at close range. Clinton's victims and Obama's victims (by drone strikes if not from Fast and Furious) were killed at a distance...but were just as dead as a result.

He supports the butchering of 3300
innocent babies each and every day.

He has voted for throwing live
born children in dumpsters.

Unless Obama repents and I see little chance of that happening, it would be better that a millstone be tied around his neck and he be tossed in deep water than that he would harm one of those little ones..

Those little tiny ones are exactly the ones Obama has voted to both wound and kill.

Looking at Obama wiping away a non-existent tear makes me want to tell him just what a phoney he is.

When person tears up the eyelashes will always have moisture in them. Those of Obama look drier than the Sahara.
