Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Perhaps, but the teacher and few children killed in the second classroom could have escaped while the shooter was busy in the first.
Second, the shooter did not run out of ammo and only killed himself when confronted by police.
So cover in place would not have saved anybody if the police response had been slower.
As I said, the correct approach is not clear.
Remember that at Columbine, the police did not enter the building for hours, preferring containment. The lesson learned was that this approach was wrong.
... and evidently that lesson was learned and applied here. Kudos to the first responders!

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.
Watch any one of the three videos I posted. Either put up or shut up - as the saying goes.

Its a sad and sick thing to use the death of these children as a tool for a liberal agenda , but as it is ,the sick sad minds of liberals will not let a good tragedy go to waste.
I agree, an Ultra Pseudo Liberal Mother acting like conservative buying & allowing her mentally ill son have guns & besides show him how to use and knowing how the Ultra Pseudo Liberals mind thinks, the mother thought by giving her son guns it would help his mental illiness & make him better.

West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, an "A" rated member of the NRA, on Monday questioned the availability of assault weapons and suggested Friday's shooting in Newtown, Conn. has opened up the issue for debate.

Manchin said past debates about assault weapons have been shut down over a fear of destroying Second Amendment rights. But the senator said last Friday's shooting changed all that. "The massacre of so many innocent children has changed—has changed America. We've never seen this happen," Manchin said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Manchin issued criticism of assault weapons, saying, "I don't know anyone in the sporting or hunting arena that goes out with an assault rifle. I don't know anybody that needs 30 rounds in a clip to go hunting. I mean, these are things that need to be talked about."

Manchin, who received an endorsement from the NRA's Political Victory Fund for his 2012 re-election race, is one of the most prominent gun rights advocates in the Senate to speak about assault weapons in the wake of the shooting.

What? Did this guy forget what state he represents?

Flack!

Decorum for this occasion was breached. It wasn't about the president showing up and being applauded for it.
You are a sick woman to think so.

I'm so happy it troubles you.

For you to say the President's appearance at a memorial for 26 dead, including 20 6-7 year olds is somehow wrong only further proves what a sick, hateful person you are.

Did you say the same when Bush went to Ft. Hood?? Of course not, Bush was white!!

You think we miss the blatant racism in your constant insults to Obama.

It's no wonder you spend your life on Topix. Even your Husband realizes what a warped harpy you are.

And yet, you claim to be a Christian, but I've never seen anything from you that indicates you understand anything about Jesus Christ or Christianity.

What you are is a hate filled racist, one who has plied the trade onthis thread for four years.

Your track racord is nothing but hatred for all minorities in America, you sick fck.

And you disgustingly call your racism and hatred 'common sense'.

Ever read the Patriot Act, where Mr. Bush made it easy for ANY President to suspend any and all Civil Rights??
Y'know, the law that right wingers cheered??
Well, it can be used to take away your guns, doofus!!
And if you resist, you'll end up dead.
I figure that'll thin the herd of right wingers real fast!!

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.
No, I did not report it. Both had thought they were acting in a safe manner. In both cases, a lesson was learned.

Both could have been prevented by some training. That was my point.

Get help.
It was clear what I said. That it is right and good for any president to speak on behalf of the nation at a time like this.

Just not with the inappropriate accolades from the audience for doing so.

I was more disappointed. This is not the time to perpetrate hatred as I also made clear in nearly every post the past two days.

You can be the judge and jury too.
No. The United States Supreme Court has found abortion to be a legal procedure.

Again, take your ignorant religious beliefs and stuff 'em where the sun don't shine. Plenty of room in that gnormous azz of yours!!

You lost this issue years ago. All the beating your head against the wall has accomplished is to make you dumber than before, if that's even possible.

It's a growing baby with arms and legs and fingers moving about in the womb. It's not feces. Maybe that's where you get confused. Fetus and feces both start with an "f" and end in an "s".

Ignorance is one thing. Willful ignorance is something else.

Take your abortion stupidity and stuff it!!
Abortion is legal, a fetus is not a human being.
Life begins when the first breath is drawn outside the womb, idiot!!
Deal with it, you wingnut!!
It is a human being with its own unique, human DNA signature which makes it an entity in its own right. Its life came from a living sperm entering a living egg, therefore the chain of life is unbroken until it dies.

Being legal doesn't make murder right. Saddam thought it was "legal" to crop dust his own country's people because he was their sovereign leader and they were an "inconvenience" to him. Was that right?

Most babies are aborted because they are inconvenient.

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.
I'm with you on this, Carol has gone completely off the deep end. All that hate is gonna burn her up inside.

My guess is that he prefers the cliff to any compromise, like a spoiled child.
What says your sockpuppet, Demos/Tenzing?
I'll let the childish "sockpuppet" remark slide this time Nobamba.

They're gonna reach a deal. The GOP's gonna have to give on the top tax rates and Obama's gonna have to give on entitlements, probably raise the age for Medicare and/or SS eligibility. I doubt if means testing will come up what with the wealthy already being devastated by a 3% rate increase; the GOP would scream bloody murder.

I'm figuring she had at least one with hubby #1, who she never speaks of.

She must feel tremendous guilt over it, and is transferring that guilt onto others.
