I’m sorry, I see no compassion in the man.

Can he (Obama) just simply hug the family, without making any attempt at politicking?

This guy does not feel normal human feelings, the shoutouts in his Ft. Hood address shown us that.

the last thing those families need is to be hugged by a communist.

I can’t imagine meeting with this jerk in the best of times. I hope these families are allowed whatever privacy they desire and not forced to be pawns in a shameless photo op.

Both Obama and Michelle attended some ceremony, I remember pictures of them bowing their heads in front of combat boots/combat rifles/helmets of slain soldiers.

“Val....VAL.....get a few shots of me with the
corps of this kid, we’ll get the wounded in a minute.
You got that pic of the Holms guy with the Culpepper
flag yet? Axlerod, get some ketsup to put on my shirt
and don’t forget the glycerin for my cheeks.”

Oh and someone get me a hot dog, I’m hungry.”

I wouldn’t doubt it, the guy doesn’t miss a trick.
Watch for a major speech on gun control coming soon.

some guy with a phony birth certificate, a phony social security card, a phony draft registration card, a person nobody knows and is a member of the communist party, is going to meet with the victims families?

This is like Hitler visiting the Bnai Brith. When the truth about this psycho kid and his motives, connections and inspiration are understood, this will be seen for what it is: audacious, preemptive damage control.

Well, Colorado IS a ‘Swing State’. I bet if this happened a couple of hundred miles to the west, north or east he wouldn’t bother, since those are fairly conservative states.

I hope some of those families have sense enough to say something like...’if my loved one was carrying, he/she might be alive right now”.

He wouldn’t be welcome at my house.

“Hurry up Mr President. There’s a 12-car pile-up on the I295 you have to get to in time for the evening news shows to get footage. It’s a good one: there’s 5 casualties!”

Go Team Obama! Go!

Seriously, go away...

Those People have been through enough, without bringing more stress on traffic, and already stressed Law enforement. Its very near the Colorado Springs Famlies still recovering from that disaster, and he wants to put more strain on the area with his stupid performance.

The gun grabbing Obama supporters are already flooding Twitter with their anti-gun rants and blaming lack of gun control on the shooting. Sickening! We need to supply them with facts.

That spectacle was the kick-off of b0z0’s campaign.

“some American Indian whack job rattling on!” I’d forgotten all about him. Now I’ll have to try to forget... again.

“”Did he visit the military victim’s families after the Ft Hood slayings ?””
“”That is what I am wondering.””

Isn’t that when GWB went there with no announcement or fanfare (drove himself as I remember) and then the announcement was made that obozo would be there and GWB and Laura Bush left???

I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m in the Eastern time zone and it’s only 9:56 pm here.....What’s going on with the time since FR came back online yesterday?

If they hadn’t caught the guy so quickly, BO could have been there for the arrest and claim he captured him and will personally see that he is brought to justice.
Just like he orchestrated the capture and demise of OBL.
My hero
My idol
MY IDLE HERO (excuse me while I get my barf bag).

This shooter will get the McVeigh (or Oswald - depending who is ‘handling’ him) treatment and will go to his gurney, leaving his last meal dessert behind, declaring he will eat it later.

Yes, an American murdering sac’o’$hit will be swiftly dispatched while that Mooslim shrink is still being held in hack(?), as the powers that be try to decide how a serious ‘worker place’ disaster’ should be handled.

"Tourist president" meme:

You'd think his media would just photoshop him into some videos of the victim's families so he wouldn't miss even one precious hour of findraising!

“Is he going to play some golf while he is there?”

He’ll probably go to fundraisers in Aspen, Vail and Telluride instead.
