Decorum for this occasion was breached. It wasn't about the president showing up and being applauded for it.
Sure, Carol.

Your model is for the President to fly over the scens, ala Bush and New Orleans.

How'd that remote way of dealing with a tragedy work for him??

Obama showed compassion and caring. The people of Newtown got the message, even if it flew right over your drug addled head.

He handled it perfectly.

Your anger is proof of this.

Deal with it, you hateful loser!!

The first responders received the same level of applause. Didn't they show that part on Fox?
Was Obama a first responder? Or was he about to deliver the most somber speech any president could deliver?

The applause wasn't simply polite and respectful. The applause sounded more like a political rally.

Extremely inappropriate.

Yes it was, and so much for all your talk about becoming kinder and less mean. You are a sick in the head woman so consumed with hatred of the President that it permeates from every pore of your body. Get help.
You even turn a most touching memorial service that the President came to, and comforted the families of the victims, a healing event into something ugly, ugly like the hatred that consumes you, you're no different than the Westboro freaks.

No, what is extremely inappropriate is you and you sick hatred of the President, even at a memorial service.

Make sure you watch the whole thing before your verdict.
Funny coming from the Republican Party describing the 47% and "the takers".
The party of Senate rape candidates.

Republican presidents have done nothing on the abortion issue- Ford, GHW Bush, GW Bush and Ron Reagan. Seems a pattern, all talk and no action.

You can be the judge and jury too.
You must have had quite a few abortions if you're that obsessed about it; forgive yourself.

It is not an accident when someone fires a gun without knowledge of where he is shooting.

Romney polled a poor 47%
Republicans are at odds with the voters on guns, right to vote and issues on rape brought up by lovely Republican Senate candidates.
Republican can raise taxes on 98% of Americans if they wish.
Taxes will increase for all Americans on January 1.

Republicans want to reduce taxes for all Americans on January 1.

The rest of your crap is irrelevant.

Obviously, it shook your world.

You're still talking about it!!

I notice you didn't take me up on my offer. Of course, if even the police can't find you trailer, how could I??

ROFLMAO!!

Don't like to we awakened from sleep, eh??

You live in a fantasy world,thinking your guns can keep you safe.

You've watched too many Chuck Norris movies!!

Glad I could prove you and the oysterman to be such cowards!!

All those guns, yet you're afraid of someone from CT!! Is it because we're so wealthy, and you desert rats so poor??

I thought so!!

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

If you were being raped what would you rather have:
1) a firearm
2) a tampon
3) birth control
4) a ham and cheese sandwich
5) a joint
6)a fast-working laxative.

I will not watch your sick anti abortion bullshyt. You are punishing yourself for your own abortions; admit, finally fer krissakes and set yourself free.
This is not about you and your sick obsession. The President went to comfort the families, it was lovely and healing.
And what did you take from it? Ugliness, and that ugliness comes from inside you. It's you Carol, it's you. You can cite your bible verses and go to church all you want and pretend to be holier than thou, but you are the most hate consumed person on here.
Maybe you need to get re-dunked or something.

So you are willing to jeopardize the public by failing to report criminal activity by your neighbors?

They won't learn a damn thing from you letting them off the hook.

If some neighbor shot into my house, I would turn them in without a second thought, no matter how well I knew them.

Funny how the two people here who beat the crap out of you on a daily basis, you decide must be the same person!! LOL

Hi Dave,
Did you report this to the police? Firing into an occupied dwelling is a crime, a second degree felony, punishable by up to 5 years. Your wife or son could have been killed. This is extremely disturbing.
My bedroom window was shot at by a bb gun by the neighbor; they're students, and went I went over there they begged and pleaded with me not to call police and payed for the new window. I agreed, but said if I ever hear a bb gun again, I will not give you a warning, I'll call 911. That roommate they had has since moved. This is serious. Don't let it slide.

The US Constitution and the Bill of Rights are perfect documents. The problem is, they were NEVER enforced to the letter from day one, and every subsequent "amendment" (excepting the 22nd) has subsequently weakened the document....
Yeah, banning slavery and extending the vote to women clearly "weakened" them.

I have no doubt that if she ever left her house that she'd be one of those nuts standing outside of abortion clinics with pictures of dead fetuses.
Sick in the head obsessed. A memorial service for the families of the massacred children and she turns into an abortion issue!
How bloody effed up in the head do you have to be to think like that? Kerrrisst.

Yes, but there are three positions in the abortion debate, not two.
There are those who are pro-abortion, not just pro-choice.
The only people who might be "pro-abortion" are eugenics dinosaurs and the only ones I've seen are on the right.
