This is a political event to paint Zero and his fan club as mainstream

I simply cannot take this anymore. I had to walk into the office and logon to FR. The kids were great. Gov Brewer was good. The feds on display now just make me want to hurl.

This is the most crazy surreal “memorial service” I’ve ever seen.

Thank you, Jan Brewer, for at least acknowledging ALL of the victims.

*sigh*

Since when is Tucson a small college town? It’s metro population is over one million. It’s the 32nd largest city in the country.

Why did janet nap get more applause then Governor Brewer?

Why has nothing been mentioned about the 14 people found with their heads chopped off in Acapulco last week?

I have to say for the life of me, I don’t understand the tone of this event. I don’t believe the speeches have been inapropriate, but the college town cheering for the speakers is so out of place. Polite applause should be the decorum, people died just days ago.

This is more campaign rally then memorial. Soon someone will yell “Yes we can.”

FOX said there would not be a traditional pastor or minister at this memorial. Very odd indeed.

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.

I can only hope that a lot of mainstream Americans are taking a good look at this farce.

I would hope that the families of the dead walk out.

Never seen a memorial service like this before. Looks more like a political rally.

Reminds me somewhat of the gathering the Dems held for Paul Wellstone back in 2002.

Sad and pathetic.

Other than Obama apologizing for destroying America and tendering his resignation, there's really nothing that worthless piece of shit could possibly say that I'd want to hear.

No thanks, I'll pass on watching the jerk.

Obama is going to turn this so-called Memorial service for a Congress woman who didn’t die, into a Wellstone Memorial style campaign rally for immigration reform.

The federal judge was Jewish, I believe,

He was Catholic, had just attended Mass before visiting Cong. Giffords. Giffords is Jewish.

I agree. The memorial speeches are well done and obviously a celebration of the lives of those lost. But the response by the audience is so inappropriate in my opinion. I do not understand.

Mo is turning on the water works.

But that is good that Giffords has opened her eyes.
To bad they had to keep it a secret to be used as a prop here.

When I saw Holder speaking I knew this was going to be political. Then there was a lot of applause and cheering. Very unseemly. When 0bama got introduced followed by lot of cheers I thought it this a rally or a memorial?? What a spectacle.

Obama says something about he and some members of Congress went into Gabby’s room and she opened her eyes for the first time.

It’s a miracle!

Government heals!

And the crowd roars!

The crowd behavior is totaly inappropriate. If this was supposed to be Obama’s moment to regain touch with the people, the crowd is destroying it.

Not every line is an applause line. Even DUer’s are surprised at this odd show, blaming “college students” not knowing how to behave. I wonder what’s really behind it...

Well, the Fort Hood memorial was held in front of soldiers, right, not in front of a bunch of hippie college students? Thus the difference in decorum.
