Skip to comments.Obama briefed on Wisconsin shooting
Posted on 10/21/2012 2:55:15 PM PDT by ColdOne
Statement from White House press secretary Jay Carney:
"The President was informed of the tragic shooting in Wisconsin earlier today at 1:30pm EDT by his Advisor for Homeland Security, John Brennan.
At 2:30pm EDT, the President received a follow-up briefing from FBI Director Bob Mueller, his Chief of Staff, Jack Lew, and Advisor for Homeland Security John Brennan. The President was told there was an active shooter in Brookfield, Wisconsin. The President was informed that the shooting did not appear to be terrorism-related

I wonder which YouTube video is to blame?
Are they going to tell us how long he and Biden laughed after hearing about it?
Which video caused this to happen?
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.
Did you get the idea that they were reminding us that obama is THE president?
Either John Brennan has shot someone or another moron reporter has once again massacred the grammatically correct sentence.
Just like ben ghazi and then it’s off to the next fund raiser, campaign stop. yeeeee ha!
hmmmm? “How can I use this to get reelected” Obama thinks to himself.
Either John Brennan has shot someone or another moron reporter/editor has once again massacred the grammatically correct sentence.
Who needs Jay Carney? I got my briefing about the shooting right here on Free Republic.
Why? Is it a federal matter?
It was domestic violence Obama you moron and yes he was one of your bros. FUBO
... a milk factory too!
How did Rush Limbaugh and YouTube Tea Party videos make him do this...?
Shooter not a Tea Party leader: not optimal.
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?
Desperation is in the air
“So, hes briefed on a shooting, but instead of being briefed on a terrorist attack, he flies to Vegas. Makes sense.”
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?
Musta been a Republican carrying on the war on women.
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
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.
This incident underscores how an ‘act of terror’ is different than a ‘terrorist attack’.
That silly movie “Obama 2016” was responsible.(/S)
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?
Post of the day!! LOL!!
“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 watched the shooting in real time from the situation room.
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.
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?
Is Zer0 watching drone video?
(Shaking my head).....so what? This is a local LE issue. Big woo Brennan.
I agree. At best it's a State Issue.
0bama needs to tend to his Islamic Faith Brotherhood issues.
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."
And in two weeks he will let us know what happened!
He should stay far away from this one. This really is a local law enforcement issue.
and the winner is....Libloather!!!!
Obama briefed on shooting in Wisconsin, but he was not notified about the Benghazi ambassadors terrorist murders yet? Obamas lies are metastasizing ten fold every time his name is mentioned?
The debate is on foreign policy. Someone would have to stray a looong way from the subject to stray into a shooting in Wisconsin.
