President Obama Speaks About Newtown Shooting

"I know there's not a parent in America who doesn't feel the overwhelming grief that I do," said President Obama.

 

President Obama made a call to action, saying, "We're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics."

At this moment, we don't need the President to come to us as a parent, but as the President...The killing of innocent people at the hands of gun-toting madmen need to be addressed and a solution to handling the control of guns found.

Some of us have the good taste to realize this is NOT the time and place to lobby our political agendas. Apparently neither "LJ" nor the present occupant of the Oval Office have such taste.

LJ, the problem is that people are disarmed in schools. The police cannot get there fast enough. People have to be able to defend themselves and they do not have that right now.

Please, this is a time to grieve and pray to God for healing. It is not a time to attack and accuse your neighbors of evil

But please, please, please , LJ and others, take a beak from partisan politics and think about your negative comments at such a time as this. Good grief, America! Stop being so egocentric and individualistic -- start acting as a unified country. It is unity which made you great -- not this negative, divisive, fault-finding bickering!

Repeat after me... everything this man says or does is politically-motivated.
