I wonder if he would attend a funeral for all of the living babies murdered by Gosnell.

I also hope they do not let him speak at the memorial.

He needs to stay in DC and use the millions that it will take to go there to pay the air traffic controllers.

He's coming for a Texas fundraiser, don't be fooled.

He wasn't coming to West until someone told him how bad the optics would be.

And if he didn’t go would you hammer him for not going?

There will be a lot of bitter, bible-clinging gun-clutchers there.

God Bless Texas.

He’ll probably have to bus his cheerleaders in. These memorials aren’t complete without his sycophants.

Perhaps if he handled these as a leader should he wouldnt be criticized so much.

So the sock-puppet's handlers gave him a freshly written speech to put on his teleprompter. Took them a while to tell the idiot what to say and how to say it.

Wonder how many "I's and Me's" they put in it . . . the Gettysburg address had NO "I's or Me's" in it.

But then Lincoln was not as special as Obambi is.

That is a fair question and I wish people would use their heads before making statements like many I see here. BHO has plenty of legitimate flaws and dangerous policies without going into the area of pure speculation that then tarnishes legitimate complaints.

I wouldn't want to be a part of another Obama photo-op. And I think the citizens of West would tell Obama to go back to his fundraiser.

Frankly, I think Perry should have told Obama to shove his "disaster declaration" where the sun doesn't shine. The benefits are minimal, and Texans can take care of our own.

Aid has been pouring into West since moments after the explosion, from all over Texas. The volume has reached the point that they had to say "enough, thank you!".

As amusing as that would be, I can promise you that the state-run media would find a way to make Obama look like a victim.

What would be better is if no one showed up -- except for a few people with cellphones to show the lack of crowds.

Good. I bet they’re going to have a hell of a time busing in attendees from Austin.

If his handlers determine there wont be enough of a crowd they will round up a bunch of outsiders from Dallas and bus them in. It will be his type of people, worshipers!

Let’s face it, if Obama said he was going to the bathroom, there’d be people on here saying that bathrooms are a communist, muslim plot, that they NEVER go to the bathroom, and that Obama is lying about ever going to the bathroom.

That would be a great idea. The locals will report it, and you can be sure it will go viral.

Seriously, the locals should schedule the memorial service with Obama at 3:00 PM, then quietly notify everyone it is at 1:00 PM. By the time he gets there, the place would be deserted.

I hope the locals just stay away from him! No photo ops for the won. I know I would not be seen anywhere near him. We know he does not care. I bet G.W. Bush has already been there hugging the victims and survivors.

I don’t care if he shows up.

But I think it will be really tacky if they let him speak.

I guess I predicted it. Drudge has him attending the memorial, “Followed by fundraisers for DNC, PLANNED PARENTHOOD...”

How generous of BO to do a fundraiser for the families of the victims of the Texas fire. Taking time out from his busy schedule to help these suffering Americans is truly noble.
