Did you catch the quick shot of Obama smiling and laughing before he realized the camera was on him? I hope DRUDGE has a picture of that on his site tomorrow morning.

This is such a hideous, insulting trainwreck.

The T-shirts are the most dignified thing in the room.

I saw the start and Obama had on his Mussolini face so I turned it off and came in to the computer. I am disgusted with them to the very Max.

Apparently some people got gunned down the other day, and this ia a memorial for the dead.

On the whole, I’d have to say the wild cheering and whooping was inappropriate.

What’s the deal with the benediction by an Indian Medicine Man? The federal judge was Jewish, I believe, and I’ll guess none of the other dead were Native American pagans.

my God, this is supposed to be a memorial service. There is cheering as if this is a pep rally before the big game.

There has been NO mention of the six people killed by this mass murderer. It’s only about the politics.

I so agree with you. It is a disgrace. All of the speakers are there to promote themselves. Hernadez (the hero/aide) patting himself on the back, cheers and whistling; it reminds me of a pep rally before a high school football game. This is a memorial service? The opening “blessing” was from a half native American who had to relate his life story as a part Mexican who’s made it to the big time.

This is awful beyond description. My heart breaks for those who lost family members. The whistling and cheering are so out of place. The governor mentions the name of a dead person and the crowd cheers. It’s like a Roman coliseum when the lions devoured a Christian.

This is what happens when you hold a memorial service in a stadium and not a church and when you speak in front of a crowd of immature young people who don’t know how to behave appropriately.

I live in Arizona, a red state that somehow elected Janet Napolitburo as Governor - TWICE.

Yes, considering that at least two of the deceased victims were Catholic. I'm reasonably sure that some of the others were Christian as well.

Is it just me or is the behaviour exibit at this “memorial Service” highly inappropriate.

Seems like only Jan and Eric understand the true meaning of Memorial Service.
