Are they going to tell us how long he and Biden laughed after hearing about it?

So, he’s briefed on a shooting, but instead of being briefed on a terrorist attack, he flies to Vegas. Makes sense.

Did he issue a pardon for the shooter since he was Amish?

Like why the hell is the president even hearing about this? This a local law-enforcement issue, not some “workplace violence” “man-made disaster” leading to a “not optimal” “bump in the road” lose of life at some federal base.

Mitt’s insistence of explicitly “putting Obama on the record” in the last debate had to have been some part of his strategy for tomorrow’s debate. Just what how that will entrap Obama remains to be seen.

Why is it a Federal matter?

Because it could be used as a campaign (debate) matter?

I don’t believe the WH has released a specific timeline like this for what the kenyan was doing on 9/11.

Let’s not get spun up about this. He has more important issues to deal with. Like giving parental advice to Jay-Z and Beyonce. And offering us encouraging words on the Mariah Carey feud with what’s her name.

All is well. Rome isn’t burning.

This sounds like a local issue. Has He been briefed on the highway shootings here in Michigan?

Found this a few minutes ago and posted it here on FR.

Wisconsin police searching for Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, who shot seven peopole at Azana Salon & Spa

http://theoriginalgreenwichdiva.com/wisconsin-police-searching-for-radcliffe-franklin-haughton-who-shot-seven-peopole-at-azana-salon-spa/39779/

More detailed than other articles I saw.

Makes me wonder if this is an “Honor Killing”? /barf term

They are really stretching this to make it seem that the Prez is fully informed of everything at all times....which everyone knows is pure poppycock after the disaster at our Libyan embassy.

Joe Biden bumped his head today jumping over a piece of string......the president was informed by the FBI,CIA,Homeland,IRS,Hillary,Bubba,Janet Reno,NYT,Bo,and a few friends in Iran.He’s waiting for Bob Schieffer to call in for instructions for tomorrow.

Well, they need to remind us because all of the radio ads disparaging Mitt Romney end with, "I'm Barack Obama, Candidate running for President and I approve this message". He's only a candidate running against the President.

This incident underscores how an ‘act of terror’ is different than a ‘terrorist attack’.

Is this a joke? Obama could have cared less about Benghazi. This, so far, is not the job of a President, so why was he briefed?

Is a President always briefed about crime in different states if it is not considered terrorism?

“They are really stretching this to make it seem that the Prez is fully informed of everything at all times....which everyone knows is pure poppycock after the disaster at our Libyan embassy.”

This is correct - prez The Won could care less. This is a domestic violence act by an xhusband (I think)that just was issued a worthless restraining order. His x wife worked at this spa where the shootings were done. 7 shot and wounded at this point, no deaths, thank God. This guy ought to look at Chicago murders.

This faux prez went to bed while the State Dept. was watching in REAL TIME to the Benghazi murders. That was total murder as no one was sent to help these 4 Americans. This is the ultimate “voting present” by this faux prez. I hope and pray that Romney nails his XXXXXXX to the floor in this debate.

Obama’s credo - Never let a crisis go to waste! Wonder how much he will milk this in a must-win state like Wisconsin. Prepare for him to use this to try to shift the focus from Libya, as only Obama can.

Why?

How is this anything other than a random act of a psychopath?

Unless Obama will try to use this tragic event to push for gun control?

The President instructed the FBI to ensure that the state and local officials had the full support of the Federal government.

The Pres__ent then went on to ask "Why can't I just eat my waffle?" Taking a bite of waffle, the Pres__ent then reiterated with a wink this time, "Just let me eat my waffle."

Actually, if Obama had a brother, he might look like the shooter.

He should stay far away from this one. This really is a local law enforcement issue.

Why does Obama have to know about domestic crime? This is for the State to deal with. Since when does a President stick his nose in State crime? This is so bizarre to me.

The debate is on foreign policy. Someone would have to stray a looong way from the subject to stray into a shooting in Wisconsin.
