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.

The Obamas are off to Hawaii in a few days....till sometime in January.
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.
Fake president...fake tears.
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
No tears for the hundred of Mexicans killed with his gun running operation Fast and Furious.
A partial birth abortion enthusiast doesnt give a shiite about murdered kids. How could he? He ran on wanting partial birth abortion for his kids!
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.
Most everyone I’ve ever seen have a truly heartfelt cry have reddened eyes. He did not. So I call b.s. those were fake!
“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.
So what’s he going to do about the family-busting and fatherlessness that causes rich, spoiled brats to perpetrate mass murders?
I don’t want a President who cries. I want one who kicks some ass!
Sort of like Clinton at the funeral.
Did he cry for the 53 million aborted children??
The award for worst perfomance in a crying scene goes to:
How much did he cry over the hundreds killed with Fast and Furious guns?
The old “gun conrol under the radar” mass-murder ploy.
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.
Fake tears from a Fake Pres__ent who is a fake human being.
Bovine scatology. The DemocRATS are ecstatic and celebrating tonight. They will finally have the poll numbers in the next couple of days needed to disarm Americans. Go ahead and celebrate ‘RATS! You’re not going to get my guns! This is America. If you don’t like the Bill of Rights, GET THE **** OUT!
It’s easy for the most heavily guarded man on earth to pretend to cry over unprotected children.
He couldn’t even pronounce the name of the city correctly. Bad, bad TOTUS.
He seemed genuinely upset which is pretty easy to understand...
Hell, I shed a tear when I first hear about it....such senseless loss... so young, so defenseless and so hard to comprehend
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.
Oh, please. He couldn’t wait to get in front of a microphone and plant the seeds for gun control. Sure enough, Eric Holder, who has no soul, comes out and inches the agenda further.
May the unrepentant 2nd Amendment traitors, especially the leftstream media anti-gun advocates and political leaders who took away the right of school administrators and teachers to defend their students, burn twice as long in hell as the piece of excrement that committed these murders.
No, he *laughs* at that, smiles and grins
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.
When he, his wife and children give up armed protection, as well as all the other elites, then they will have a legitimate right to talk on the issue.
>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.
DID he cry when he killed kids in Pakistan with HIS drones?
Yep...heard it..the shutters went crazy. Just what Obama wanted.
No voice cracking or lips quiverring . fake. not one tear. i dont believe he has any emotion but anger and hatred.
Whoop de doo for him. I’ve been crying since 2008.
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.
I’ve never seen a tear from BO the whole time he’s been in office. He didn’t shed a tear when the coffins came home from Benghazi. Too busy thinking about covering his and Hillary’s a#$es.
FOX keeps buying into the “visibly shaken” line. I turn the channel when they show him.
I was thinking more along the lines of his ‘body man’ (his new Reggie Love) carrying a small packet of pepper with him for a quick eye rub.
Probably swatting away another fly....the infested, rotten SOB.
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.
Hundreds dead in Chicago in 2012 because of gun violence...Not A Tear Shed...
I think he said Scripture.
