Surely he’s been told who the murderer is and what the motivation was. Otherwise, he wouldn’t step out on this limb.

Late term abortions are acts of violence.

He knows who he is. Tiller was protected by the governor of KS for all these years. Maybe Tiller took one for Obama’s gun grab.

I was thinking the same thing. Plus, it's unusual not to release the suspects name before apprehension, let alone after. They wanted to get their ducks in a row for Barry.

Disturbing that he can use stronger words to condemn this than he does when talking about N. Korea. Or any dictator who hates the United States for that matter.

While I don't approve of killing abortion doctors (I'll let God judge them)...

I noticed that Obama left out the millions of babies that are killed each year... isn't that an "heinous acts of violence" too?

Agreed. I want to find out the motive first. I don’t think this guy’s murder is going to help the Pro-Life cause in any way.

However, having said that, I am not all broken up that he has gone to Hell where he belongs.

cut the sh(t, is this real?

When was the last time a president addressed America about a single crime of any kind that wasn't some kind of obvious national disaster?

Can these characters really be this typecast, the lines so freaking lame?

What you mean to ask, I gather, is: "who knew what, when" and that seems to be the right question.

Yes, he’s been told - not that he actually cares...

Me, I have mixed feelings - and ashamed of it. He was a despicable human being...but I did not and do not wish him harm. I can understand others outrage - but killing is just wrong. He would have had his comeuppance in the long run...

Um... Dear Mr. ignorant, inexperienced, immature, commie, lowlife, whitey-hating, pseudo-Christian, crypto-Muzzie, ghetto-thug, Kenyan usurper:

Just how is partial-birth-abortion NOT an act of violence.

Idiot.

Tiller is a murderer. He deserves no sympathy.

America has had stolen from it its right to vote up or down on the subject of abortion. Therefore, there will be those who believe they are doing God’s business when it comes to killing abortion mill murderers.

It is really no different than during slavery. Some led insurrections and committed murder in the name of abolition. Many now consider them heroes.

I do not believe that the murderer of Tiller is necessarily a pro-life radical. It could be a family member, a relative of one of Tiller’s victims, or a murderer motivated by something other than the “life” issue.

However, I do believe that the disposition of Tiller was for God’s vengeance and not for man’s. I disagree with friends on this, but I value their opinion, because they’ve correctly pointed out that Tiller was a murderer.

People like Obama don’t think that an unborn baby is really a baby. They don’t think it’s a human being in the first place. So he feels no grief at all for the killing of unborn babies. So he doesn’t consider abortion as a heinous act of violence.

I was thinking the same thing. Usually, liberals want to know why "they hate us so much" and how they the USA can bend over so they like us more.

Obama has been President for over 4 months now. There have been thousands of murders in that time. This is the first mention he has made of any of them.

He's selective in his outrage, so you know there are some heavy duty political and legal consequences coming...

They all are. NOW is already out there with it's howling about "domestic terrorism."

I wouldn't call it a conscious conspiracy, at least not now, in terms of a full playbook including the causal act itself. But as for incitment and everything that follows, it feels like it's been written by consultants.

It would really be ironic if the guy was shooting at someone else and got Tiller by mistake.

I can't help suspecting the same thing. This is perfect for Janet BullDyke-atano’s right wing domestic terrorist hit list.

Now (most assuredly) “many” in the public mainstream will be “demanding” that “something be done” about all those right wingers out there.

It's coming, FRiends.

I find that choice of wording very telling too. The President doesn’t bat a eye at the “heinous acts of violence” ie. 1 and one-half million abortions done in the USA every year. The only way these acts of violence can be resolved is to make abortion illegal.
