Obama: 'These children are our children'
politico44 ^ | 12/14/12 | Obama/politico44

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."

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?

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.

On the other hand, at some point it was decided we couldn't institutionalize the demonstrably mentally disturbed, that medicating them was the better option.

Who was responsible for that particular brainstorm, and what do you wanna bet this will be the last thing the media wants to discuss?

“.....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.

Exactly! There is no way in the world I would throw that in his face now, over this, if he hadn't chosen to politicize it while the bodies of children are still warm. That is what he did and it is the lowest vilest form of politics.

'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.

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.)

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.

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.

I can't believe anyone actually falls for his phony "emotion". He is simply an actor like every other sociopath. It probably said "pause, blink, wipe eyes" on his note card. He looked up and there was no indication that he had tears or other reddening like every other who person begins to cry. Hell, every time he did wipe during the speech was just under the lid where there was no tear, or what would have squeezed tears out from the lid like a woman trying not to mess up her mascara.

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.

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.
