Posted on 12/14/2012 2:51:28 PM PST by Tailgunner Joe
US President Barack Obama wept as he addressed the nation in the aftermath of the school shootings in Connecticut.
Mr Obama paused repeatedly as he struggled to keep his composure while speaking of the children who had been killed and the milestones in their lives they would never have - birthdays, graduations, weddings.
"Our hearts are broken today," he said, at times using a finger to wipe tears at the corners of his eyes.
Mr Obama said he had reacted to news of the elementary school shooting first as a parent.
He added that he and First Lady Michelle would do what any other parent in America would do - "hug our children a little tighter".
"There is not a parent in America who does not feel the same overwhelming grief I do," he said.
Mr Obama called for "meaningful action" regardless of politics.

Mr Obama paused repeatedly as he struggled to keep his composure
I struggled to keep my composure when he was elected...
He is a fraud. He has killed more kids with his votes than all school shooters combined. And all the victims of his legislation won’t have birthdays either. Why no tears for them?
Is he flying off to Las Vegas again?
I saw him motion like he was wiping away a tear but I never saw any tears. Also, I found it interesting that when he scratches his face while talking about an opponent he uses his middle finger but when pretending to wipe away a tear he uses his index finger. Wouldn’t he use the same finger each time?
His crying for the loss of these children is like Clinton crying at the funeral of Ron Brown.
Being defensless is not morally superior, those who advocate for others to be defenseless are evil, you know like Hitler, Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot, Mugabe.
fake tears. I have seen that photo and no tears. Sorry.
Someone on another thread has already pointed out that Zero wiped the outside corners of his eyes, and the tear ducts are on the inside corners. But we already knew he is a fake.
This was in a wealthy area; I don’t believe for a minute that Obama cares a whit about these wealthy white children.
AS the left prepares its assault on gun rights, we need to prepare an assault on public schools. They obviously can’t provide the safety necessary...
I’m sure they were fake tears. Sociopaths don’t feel the pain of others. They are only capable of inflicting it.
IMO Obama shows all the classic signs of narcissistic sociopathy.
The tears were intended to garner sympathy FOR him. Classic manipulative narcissistic behavior.
I would believe GWB’s tears. I would even believe Bill Clinton’s tears. But I don’t buy tears from Obama. Not for a second.
DOES HE CRY WHEN THOSE IN CHICAGO ARE KILLED?
Same people “crying” now have been crying about the Syrian gooberment “killing its own” citizens for weeks now. Hello, that is why we have a 2A so we don’t have to wait for a cynical bunch of Ivy League crackheads to send us weapons.
Crockodile tears from that hypocrite.
He thought the Ayers bombings were OK
“All that tax money they could have paid... All the debt they could have assumed... (sob)”
I could really give a poop how he's affected.
