Skip to comments.US President Obama Cries Over School Shooting
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.

I say disarm 'rats.
“NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE.”
As was pointed out by another FReeper, Mr. Intellectual Giant was wiping imaginary tears from the outside of his eyes when tear ducts are located on the side closest to the nose.
I thought Obama would be happy, most of the victims where white...
It doesn’t look like a hotbed of Dems (except of course for all of the government workers milling about). This looks like an area where a lot of people are going to see their income taxes climb under Obama (and unlike Hollywood people, they can’t afford those increases while maintaining their standard of living).
If it was in one of CT’s food deserts I’d agree.
There is no other word...You're a Hypocrite!!
My prayers for all.
He probably pulled out a nose hair,,,, like Kelly did to Bud! That’ll bring a tear to your eye! Try it!
As Rahm said, a crisis give you the chance to do things you normaly wouldn’t be able to do.
It’s called manipulation.
There it is, right there. He wants to collect all guns.
Obama was crying because he couldn’t believe the opportunity he was given to enact gun control legislation. Let no crisis go waste.
Exactly. Cries on cue. That’s about as sincere as a socialist can get.
I will give him a bit of slack on this, but not much. Previously he described children as “burdens.” He is doing the correct thing today as president in a national tragedy, but it is also an issue he will exploit for more power.
Did y’all hear all the camera’s start clicking when he pretended to cry? The lefty media is going to have a field day with this!
Nope. Unless it was Whitey doing the killing.
Leftists are hypocrites. Every month in Chicago there are more young blacks killed than there were today in Newton.
Where’s the outrage? Where’s the call to ban guns? Ooops, that’s right. Guns are already banned in Bammie-ville.
what utter crap, never let a crisis go to waste and we’ll have idiots thinking obama cares about them as if they were his kids.
Zero is going to ban the AR-15, on line ammo, gun shows, and magazines. This will be his pretext for an emergency EO.
It is interesting, than even as he paused, his voice never cracked or even showed signs of sadness. Plus, no matter how hard I tried, I could not find the invisible tears that he was wiping off his eyes and face.
“he uses his middle finger”
Someone should write a book on the subject, `The Rhetoric of Zero’s Body Language’ ....
The way I see it, he doesn’t want to flip-off people that he’s not trying to subliminally insult; here he is trying to persuade them with synthetic sorrow.
He reminds me of the Walrus in `Alice in Wonderland,’ weeping copious tears over the oysters as he selects, shucks and swallows them.
Why would someone actually shoot the bird when he knows he’s being recorded? Because he can say, “That’s just me, an international man of mystery.”
He’s a slick fraud but if he tries to mau mau this horrible tragedy against the 2nd Amend, that ain’t gonna work.
Does he cry for those innocents that are discarded with abortions? Of course we well know how much he stands for those children who actually survive abortions.
Hussein doesn’t care one bit that 20 small children died. I don’t believe that. He wants gun control, always has, but he cared that 20 small children died.
People in Conn. are liberals, so they don’t care that 20 small children died. I don’t believe that - they care that those little children died.
