Skip to comments.Obama: 'These children are our children'
Posted on 12/14/2012 12:41:54 PM PST by ColdOne
President Barack Obama, in a brief address to the nation, offered his condolences to those who lost loved ones in the elementary school shootings in Newtown, Conn., and said it is time to act to prevent similar tragedies.
"As a country we have been through this too many times," he said, ticking off recent shootings across the nation. "These neighborhoods are our neghborhoods, and these children are our children, and we're going to have to come together
to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics."

But they don’t all look like you.
I’m not in the mood for this... person.
He is coming after your guns. This is it that will get him cover.
But for my kids - armed Secret Service agents
Fetuses are our fetuses.
I must be confused....
Well, the First Manipulator has been heard from..."
I’m NEVER in the mood for “this person”.
It’s folks like him who are responsible for many of these mass shootings. He thinks he can disarm this country—which will never happen.
“They” (gun grabbers) just don’t get it.
All “gun free zones” are potential killing fields. When did we last here of a mass shooting at a place like the NRA convention, or a gun store, or any number of places where the shooter might think he would meet some resistance?
Another golden opportunity for the Driviler-in-Chief to campaign.
Yeah, just like he said Trayvon was “like his son” or whatever bullcrap. I don’t want to hear from him about this, as if it is somehow personal to him. Just like telling that Benghazi victim dad that they were going to seek justice for his son. His words are worthless.
I love how the all the news readers are so “concerned” about Obama because he was emotional. Just watched the Gov of CT handle the situation correctly. He maintained a professional but still sympathetic demeanor without breaking out in alligator tears. Just wait until tonight when half the media will be wringing their hands about the toll “all these shootings” are taking on the president.
He said he have to take meaningful steps to address this problem without regard to the politics of the situation.
If that is the case, then the solution is to arm absolutely everyone. The solution is to make the softest of all targets, schools, into impregnable fortresses.
In lieu of that, stop sending kids to schools where they are sitting ducks.
I am not going to give up my right to defend myself from psychopaths and terrorists because of the actions of psychopaths and terrorists.
If we give up our defenses, then we are defenseless, just as this school was.
This “working together” to prevent this is his code speak for gun control.
Who was responsible for that particular brainstorm, and what do you wanna bet this will be the last thing the media wants to discuss?
Any bets the shooter was “one of his”, too?
I’m with you. I can not stand to listen to him he could care less about any of the people just another crisis for him
An appeal to the mob.
0bamugabe demagogued it. I knew he would.
“.....and we’re going to have to come together to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.”
Will this be before or after Obama brings to justice ALL of those responsible for Fast & Furious and those who refused to rescue our men in Benghazi?
Or, do those murders not count?
I should have known, those crocodile tears! Just when I thought he had me w/ what I thought were his first genuine human feelings for anything other than his jerk himself and his degenerate politicking, he had to prove otherwise. Now we know why those sham crocodile tears. G T H obambam, you reek illegitimacy and charlatanism from head to toe.
Where are the crocodile tears for 300 dead Mexicans killed with 0bama’s Fast & Furious guns?
Anyone noticing all the shooters are young white males? I’d be interested to find how many of them had been subjected to psychological drugs... ritalin, paxil, etc.
Wow, you just touched a nerve there.
Where was the tearing up about our diplomatic staff in Libya?
Correct...if they’re gonna herd our kids into public schools they should be providing security, including armed guards, teachers, or officers.
Obama can crawl back under his communist rock...
'0bamugabe' is the perfect pejorative bastardization of his name here. He is going to do the same thing with gun control as he is with the 'fiscal cliff' BS. He will bully Congress to act swiftly and exactly as he dictates or he will demonize them with more demagoguery. We are about to see his true tin horn dictator tendencies really flower now that he's been re-elected.
All you who kept attacking Birthers...hope you are happy now.....
Chancellor Obama would like nothing better than to use this tragedy as an excuse to send the Obamastaffel door to door confiscating legal firearms.
Posters on here can ridicule him but I saw him make his statement and he had a hard time talking, would stop talking, then start again and he did have tears. As soon as he made the statement, he walked off. He was definitely affected by this and that is how we all felt.
The killer’s mother was a kindergarten teacher and that’s where he started firing so most of these kids are going to be 5 years old. He did kill his mother in that room.
Hussein may take this as another push to try to get rid of guns, but he was very disturbed about all these dead kids.
I was surprised that the reporter covering that speech (he was reading notes) that obama made, commented that: “the president of the US, did not say God bless America, I am surprised”.
Actually, I was shocked the guy said that on camera. (It was our local FOX network.)
... except the unborn in the womb. Barry has as much blood on his hands as mass murderers.
He already did use it to push for gun control. That’s what his speech was about. That is why he carefully listed several other shootings.
He’s a bonafide sociopath. By his very nature, he studies others emotions and mimics them. He’s a stone and I am sure his handlers told him he needed to go up there and show emotion.
Hitler was big on gun control too.
Liberals, however, are unable or unwilling to see the connection.
This . . . pure evil subhuman.
Jared Lee Loughner (Tucson,AZ) - 23 yo white male.
Adam Lanza (Newtown, CT) - 20 yo white male
James Eagan Holmes (Aurora, CO) - 24 yo white male.
Jacob Tyler Roberts (Oregon mall) - 22 yo white male
Eric David Harris (Colulumbine, CO) - 19 yo white male
Dylan Bennet Klebold (Columbine, CO) - 17 yo white male
Anyone detect a pattern here? It’s time to check these shooters’ medical histories for psychotropic drugs.
Rudy Toot Guiliani is on Cavuto doing the same thing. “Everything has to be on the table. Everyone has to put aside their usual biased preferences (or something like that.”
Of course there was the furious chatter of camera shutters, making that "emotional President Obama" photo. He knows the still frames will show him wiping his eyes, so real tears don't matter.
I was just waiting for the hidden call for the ban on AR platform rifles. We will have to put aside politics and get that done, of course.
Exactly..... he doesn’t even talk about those dead humans.
Law abiding gun owners are going to pay hell for this tragedy.
Arguably, I have all of the firearms I could ever need, but I have been putting off buying a shotgun. Perhaps I need to quickly get off the dime on that purchase. A Remington 870 12 ga Police Magnum seems like a good squirrel gun for my needs.
“This working together to prevent this is his code speak for gun control.”
My thoughts exactly. Between this and Aurora, he now has “ammunition” to try to enforce more strict gun control... Which does nothing to keep crooks and people who are nutters away from guns.
Look at prohibition. “Make it illegal!” They said. Well, that didn’t hold water either.
That’s my take on it also.
OK....I expect the President of the United States to make some sort of statement of condolence. But this is really over-the-top.
Exactly right. I have had long term dealings with a couple of sociopaths in my life and for some reason was able to detect their behavior right away (though I only learned the clinical terms for their behavior later). I've always been very good at reading eyes, faces and micro-expressions, so maybe that has something to do with it.
But, yes he is a clear-cut sociopath and as you can see here, fools people quite easily.
He’s set race relations back 100 years. He’s the reason why people are so angry about every little thing.
