The kids on the stage was the perfect way to remind everyone that it was the killing of 20 kids that inspired this swift response for gun safety measures. And these are the same people who either have no suggestions or solutions to the obvious problems that this nation has with guns. Funny thing is there were people (mainly on the right) who criticized President Obama’s change in policies, strategies and tactics back in 2009 when it came to the hunt for Osama bin Laden. They said that it would make this country less safe and it would find Bin Laden…
4 years later, there hasn’t been a single successful terrorist attack on American soil on Obama’s watch, and Osama bin Laden sleeps with the fishes.
So proven by the landslide mandated election, We the People will go with Obama over the skeptics… he’s a proven winner.
Bullshit again, you moron. Nobama didn't change shit, he USED Bush's policies. You keep saying that, but no proof of the changes. You're as much a pathetic liar as he is..

Examples of Mr. Obama, now in his fourth year as president, adopting Bush-era measures:

Special operations forces. One of the first steps taken by President Bush after Sept. 11 was to revive, fund and expand special operations forces as the dog that would hunt down and kill terrorists.

President Bush also made U.S. Special Operations a war-independent command, just like U.S. Central Command, meaning it could plan and execute its own battle plans.

The U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the Army's Delta Force and Navy’s SEAL Team 6 mostly had focused on hostage rescue. After Sept. 11, they started receiving the manpower and intelligence to become manhunters. Their biggest successes: Saddam Hussein; al Qaeda’s top Iraq terrorist, Abu Musab Zarqawi; and Osama bin Laden.

Special Ops/Intelligence. The Bush administration fused commandos with the nation’s intelligence agencies — the CIA, the National Security Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency — into task forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
President Bush also transferred a highly secretive military intelligence unit, which specialized in technical surveillance and intercepts, to the Joint Special Operations Command so that commandos and intelligence experts could work together directly.

Predator strikes. The Bush administration established Predator drone bases in Pakistan to strike at al Qaeda and Taliban extremists in that country’s frontier badlands, where U.S. ground troops cannot go.

These are why there have been no more attacks on USA soil...except for Fort Hood because of politically correct dems didn't want to offend that muslim.

Now, you phoney sorry excuse for an American........show us what changes were made!!

Stop with the false love for our kids. Over fifty million abortions. 45% of our children in single families. Up to 80% in the ghettos. Relationships between men and women strained because of extreme feminism. About 16% of Americans havw some psyche issue. With the uplifting of females, males have been put on the back burner and we have ten million felons. Gay marriage parents are now promoted as traditional parents are pushed further back. America is dropping like a rock in most issues involving quality of life. We used to be number one in near everything even with the flaws you dislike. This will not last. No nation has lasted with what you call equality. Equality based on emasculating and calling white males evil for eternity. The Asian people are licking their chops. Their turn is coming. So enjoy the short time of selfish utopia you fools are bringing. And what is gauling, is that you should know it. You proclaim yourselves so smart.

Little kids are the ones who were killed in the Sandy Hook shooting. It's always young people being killed - in the theater shooting, in the school and college shootings. I'm not a Dem, but fair is fair. The Five yet again made the case for why it is the worst show on TV. They nag and nag on ANY made up thing, make anything into a negative bad thing, and they have NO creditials. I do not get how a negative show were five folks with no credentials nag and b!tch for an hour a day stays on the air.
In light of published reports of his position on abortion, this was brave or stupid. I just hope that grandma keeps the girls out of the Hollywood scene.

SHOCK: It was reported today that none of the wounds on the teachers or children in Connecticut were from the AR-15 Bushmaster. All wounds were from the pistols. The AR-15 was in the car. Obama knew this, and yet once again Obama lied and used children to attack the second amendment.........just like Hitler

The fact is, Adam Lanza used a handgun to take his own life, but he relied on the Bushmaster AR-15 to kill most of the victims. He did use that gun. You don’t have to believe me. Believe Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance:

The primary weapon used in the attack was a “Bushmaster AR-15 assault-type weapon,” said Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance.

Let’s keep to the facts, not the grainy videos on YouTube purporting to show what is not true.
