US President Obama Cries Over School Shooting
sky.com ^ | December 14, 2012

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’m going to step out on a limb here.

Everything this man does or says, is suspect and fits a mold.

If he did have tears, they were tears of joy!

Never let a crisis or a tragedy, go to waste.

how about a leader being strong, not crying if he was and I dybt he was.
How about a leader projecting a strong view and not crying.

I swear this man and his circle will stoop to anything to get teir way.

How many sheep now will lap this up and make it about obama, and how he cares about others,

off to puke

"Mr Obama paused repeatedly as he struggled to keep his composure"

Or perhaps all that "pausing" was him biting his tongue so fiercely it made him "cry".....aka, tear up.

What an evil poser that b@st@rd is.

“Re watch the video. He used used his middle finger when he used the word America.”

He’s used the middle finger when he talks about opponents, America, and conservative issues. I first noticed it when he was either campaining in 2008, or after he was elected then. Many times he smiles after he does it.

I thought that perhaps he just uses the middle finger all the time, but watch.... he doesn’t. He uses it only at particular times.

I’ll believe it when I see the tears. “Struggling” to keep you composure is easy. A purely political animal like Obozo simply isn’t believable to me.

Yet no tears shed or public statement concerning hundreds of dead Mexican nationals by full auto firearms sent purposefully to Mexico without NICS checks, without tracking them, to create a dead pool and crack down on the 2nd Amendment in this country.

These next 4 years WILL BE ALL ABOUT GUNS.

Zero is going to ban the AR-15, on line ammo, gun shows, and magazines. This will be his pretext for an emergency EO.

If he tries that, he won't get away with it. And the rifle was reported to be found in the trunk of the shooter's car. Apparently he did not use it.

Be assured that this performance took a LOT of quick, last-minute coaching. And no, I’m not being cruel or insensitive.

As another poster mentioned, this Murderer-in-Chief has overseen the destruction of tens of thousands of little ones through his abominable and unforgivable championing of the holocaust of abortion.

>Obama called for “meaningful action”

BS. The POS that killed his mother and others had issues that were not dealt with properly. I suspect he had made many threats and everyone went on pacifying him instead of locking him up or knocking sense into him.

Those that have had to deal face to face with these kinds of killers and were able to stop them in the act rather than when they were threatening truly understand.

There are ways to stop these scum before they act out but gun control ain’t one of them.

I agree. There appeared to be set moments when he flicked or wiped at the outside of his eye without there being any tears being wiped away. He also stared straight down at the podium when he was seeming to gather himself. Then he launched from that emotional show right into vowing to take the action needed to stop future incidents, regardless of the politics. (Implied but unstated: crack down with more gun control.)

These FEMA camps that are supposed to be built around the U.S., put all mentally ill people there. No amount of medical treatments or psychiatric help is going to change them. Society doesn’t need them running around. Their minds are not right to begin with and then they see all the garbage on tv and video games which enhances their mental illness.

He also cried when he was reelected. Tears were shooting out both sides of his face. Axelrod must have had riot control police on hand with tear gas canisters at the ready when the magic moment came.

Beginning at about 3:40 of the video of Obama's speech, he says:

In the words of Spitzer-
HEAL THE BROKEN HEARTED and BIND UP THEIR WOUNDS.

Who is Spitzer? Because that quote is about Jesus, and it is in the words of Psalms 147 and Isaiah 61.
