Skip to comments.My Take: Obama's Newtown remarks show presidents as pastors in chief

Presidents wear a lot of hats. They serve as commanders in chief. They nominate Supreme Court justices. They veto congressional legislation. Increasingly, they are also coming to serve as our pastors in chief.
In his remarks Sunday night at an interfaith service at in Newtown, Connecticut, President Barack Obama vowed to use whatever power he has to prevent more mass shootings, and he all but promised to push for stricter gun control laws in the next U.S. Congress. But policy was not top of mind yesterday for either the president or a grieving nation.
It wasn't a speech. It was a sermon. And it is worthy of the talents of our current pastor in chief.

Where, oh where, is the BARF ALERT for this piece?????
And, anyone who thinks the leftist POS who squats in our White House is talking anything but politics in exploiting this crime is delusional at best, deranged at worst.
I need to remember to squint as I am scrolling through the comments, that might help.
Have a good day!
Every national speech Obama gives (Arizona, Oregon, Colorado, etc.) has served only to encourage the nut-jobs out there, who see the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES on a national stage talking about massacre, and they too will become famous.
This event, and Obama’s shameless publicity stunts, are the catalyst for copy-cat massacres. He and his handlers know. Bank on it.
Obama, the perfect father, the perfect american is an angel of light...as in Lucifer.
