An emotional Obama: 'They had their entire lives ahead of them'
NBC ^ | 12/14/12 | Michael O'Brien

An emotional President Barack Obama led the nation in mourning the victims of an elementary school massacre on Friday, speaking from the White House following the shooting in Newtown, Conn.

The president not only pledged to assist investigations into the shooting, but also became openly emotional upon reflecting upon the many school children killed or injured in today's mass shooting.

"The majority of those who died today were children -- beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10-years-old," he said, pausing to wipe away a tear. "They had their entire lives ahead of them -- birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own."

Lets train the teacher to use and respect firearms so they can protect our children. Things like this do not happen at police stations where everyone has a weapon.

Hussein: (on the phone) Bill, quick, how did you get those tears to suddenly appear at Ron Brown's funeral.

Bill Clinton: Ah man, that was easy. Ah just yanked a nose hair out right before the camera got to me.

Hussein should sign up for his Screen Actors Guide union card.

Didn't he play the snooty dentist in that Sinbad flick "Houseguest"?

Ditto.

The Looking Spoon - Any possibilities here for putting Obama’s quote under an appropriate picture. (Maybe a fetus)

The “Fraud in Chief” is going to have to do better than that performance.

Maybe some of his leftist actor friends can give him some acting lessons. That farcical display sure didn’t cut it.

This from the champion of infanticide.

Perhaps he can call the mourning mothers and fathers and tell them that at least they are no longer being punished with a child.

... not much of a life Barry, paying for your callous spending spree. The children are with God and free from tyranny and debt.

Bathouse Barry Benghazi seems to love dead babies ... Guess what, Barry: The 3700 babies killed by abortion EVERY DAY in these United States also "had their entire lives ahead of them -- birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own."

Yet you support killing them, Barry! You claim that's a 'fundamental right'.

The bloody hypocrisy of the left never ceases to appall and disgust.

In the words of Rahm Emanuel; never let a tragedy go to waste.......here comes the biggest effort to circumvent the 2nd amendment. Too bad......the school didn’t have armed security.

How much of the national debt would each of them have “inherited” by the time they started having an income?

Who knows how much ‘bams will run up our debt before the whole thing crashes.

Regarding the headline quote.....he continued, “not unlike the unborn children I support aborting”.

“My Fast and Furious program didn’t work, so now I’ll have to politicize this tragedy, performed by a mentally ill person, for my gun control agenda”.
