Skip to comments.Obama: Penn State abuse cause for 'soul-searching'
Posted on 11/12/2011 7:44:10 AM PST by ETL
CORONADO, Calif. (AP) - President Barack Obama says the Penn State sex-abuse scandal should lead to "soul-searching" by all Americans, not just Penn State.
"Obviously what happened was heartbreaking, especially for the victims, the young people who got affected by these alleged assaults," he told Westwood One Radio in an interview Friday night, in his first public comments on the scandal.
"And I think it's a good time for the entire country to do some soul-searching - not just Penn State. People care about sports, it's important to us, but our No. 1 priority has to be protecting our kids. And every institution has to examine how they operate, and every individual has to take responsibility for making sure that our kids are protected."

Has anyone contacted Kevin Jennings, or Lady "Born that way" Gag-gag, or Larry Sinclair for comment?
(Was the little boy being raped up the *ss born that way, or was he recruited and groomed?)
And...did Sandusky use a condom?
And...where are all the anti-Catholic queers?
NO cheers, unfortunately.
Obama has done a great job destroying our country and constitution. Now he feels qualified to lecture the rest of us about morality.
Jimmy Carter all over again.
The only malaise we have is waking up each morning and having to be reminded that you’re still president.
...once again the useless one steps to center stage to say nothing while playing king and stealing billions.
He just can’t resist rubbing crap in our faces, can he...

EDITORIAL: At the president's pleasure
'Safe school czar' encouraged child sex with an older man
September 28, 2009
A teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an "older man." At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is President Obama's "safe school czar". It's getting hard to keep track of all of this president's problematic appointments. Clearly, the process for vetting White House employees has broken down.
In this one case in which Mr. Jennings had a real chance to protect a young boy from a sexual predator, he not only failed to do what the law required but actually encouraged the relationship.
According to Mr. Jennings' own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the "older man" in a "bus station bathroom" and was taken to the older man's home that night. When some details about the case became public, Mr. Jennings threatened to sue another teacher who called his failure to report the statutory rape "unethical." Mr. Jennings' defenders asserted that there was no evidence that he was aware the student had sex with the older man.
However, the new audiotape contradicts this claim. In 2000, Mr. Jennings gave a talk to the Iowa chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, an advocacy group that promotes homosexuality in schools. On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated."
Mr. Jennings' denials about these events reveal a lack of remorse. He has not admitted that he made mistakes in this case, and he now refuses to answer any questions about the scandal. Don't forget, this is a presidential appointee we're talking about. Mr. Obama should make clear what his standards are for public servants serving at the pleasure of the president. Encouraging and covering up man-boy sexual activity are serious offenses. The White House should force Mr. Jennings to come clean.
The tired old “we are all to blame” horse excrement.
Nice photos...gee, ain’t he clever...
I will so enjoy giving him the exact same reaction in the voting booth next November.
As a matter of fact, I already do whenever I see or hear him now.
Otherwise known as a typical liberal reaction to events caused by one of their “protected victim classes” - in this case, a homo pedophile freak - just doing what comes naturally to them.
They truly are defective...
Why is it this SOB Obama got cought red handed making a live microphone anti jewish/Israel statement and the MSM is not reporting this 24/7 headline news?But he makes one lousy fake statement about this issue and it is a big deal?
“Not just Penn State”. Really? No Obama, you cannot spread this out to all Americans. This was focused deliberate evil and maybe Obama knew about it too. Maybe all predators were aware. Maybe Bawney was aware. maybe it was an inside secret.
Sick. Sick Sick
We can search our souls and meditate upon our navels after the dead lowlife bodies have been dragged away...
Does this mean Graham Spanier is out of the running for Sec. of Education?
Love the grammar from the smartest man in the world.
