I am here to apologize for President Obama. He has been busy staring out the window with the blinds open thinking of how to send more Gitmo detainees back to the Taliban. He is truly sorry for your loss.

To ALL of our elected Senators and Representatives:
Please go stand by the window with the mini blinds in your office or the chambers... we'd like to drive by to wave "hi" to you.

the safety of window blinds has been a problem for several years before president obama took office. Why haven't other administrations dealt with the problem?? i guess they were relying on the blind industry to police itself. sound familiar???(think banking) the obama safety commission chairman has at least recognized the problem after only 8 months in office. why wasn't it recognized in the years before obama's election??

I know this family and saftey cords were all tied up and the crib was not right in front of the window. Almost all parents I know with children have beds by windows. What size house do u leave in? She is a great mom and did more for child safty in her home more then anyone I know. Did u know she picked those out because it said child safe,Great for Kids room.. People should really think before barking..This is a child gone and tons more. 2 every month. They recall toys all the time. Please people grow up and just get the word out there. Take All Blinds out of childrens room. Learn from this not bash a poor mother.
