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

Posted on 12/14/2012 1:10:50 PM PST by Nachum

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."

FSCKING BARF!

LOOK AT THE MAN’S BODY LANGUAGE! He’s not sorrowful, he’s angry and vengeful. There’s vengence in his eyes. He’s ramping up the anti-gun spin machine.

Hold on to your hats, folks. This is going to get real bad real quick.

I wish he felt the same way about those children that happen to be temporarily hidden under the skin of their mother.

As usual, these are crocodile tears.

to murder children and women and families around the world.

Obama could give a ___ about these dead children. Since when do Marxist ghouls care about anything but raw power. And if 0zero can use this to jam gun owners he will try his best

It’s because this will further his gun control agenda.

Yeah, I agree. He must have had to fake being sad that elementary school kids and teachers were slaughtered. I bet he laughed out loud when he heard the news. Hey, maybe he was crying because he was disappointed there were survivors?

He didn’t cry when those 16 yr olds were shot dead with guns he sold to Mexican drug cartels.

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.

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.

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.

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”.

Manipulative, deceit-filled bastard boy ... he had no qualms to allow just born infants be neglected to death when he was seeking higher power in IL. I’d say those little ones he help exterminate back then, opposing doctor care for just born infants who had survived abortion attempt, had ten more years ahead of them had he not help slaughter them! This bastard boy is evil right to his filthy soul.

He is actually a fairly talented actor. He should consider a career on the stage and in movies after he leaves the White House. I understand that a lot of successful actors have Narcissistic Personality Disorder, so this should be a perfect fit.

Effing Psychopomp.

Preying on the emotions of Americans.

Obama is an effing parasite.

Think about it thhuis way, the school and the Connecticut eductation system in a paroxysm of anti gun political correctness, failed to have armed teachers at the school
who were militia minded, and so the school failed to protect
the lives of the 27 individuals who were killed.

GET WITH IT, or bleat like sheep and die, Connecticut.
You have a president who would rather you be bleating sheep.It is his job to make sure you are.
