Quantcast

Obama to attend memorial for Colorado shooting victims. He didn't do that for the Ft. Hood victims. Think that's because it's election year, or because it doesn't bother him as much when the killer is a Muslim, or both?

    Obama NEVER passes up the opportunity for a good photo op to continue to mesmerize his followers. He hasn't been back to Dover AFB to meet the war dead since he had his first photo op that had his followers fainting in they're homes and streets.

    This will just be another opportunity to preach and lecture to the American people. Obama is about as inspiring as a bout of diarrhea on a hot summer day.

    BTW, why hasn't Major Hassan gone to trial yet?

    All but one of the Ft. Hood fatalities were soldiers, and that one was still an army employee. It was a horrible tragedy, but the victims were those willing to die to serve their country. The Aurora theater shooting victims, on the other hand, were civilians operating in a civilian capacity. The Ft. Hood victims and their families must have, by nature, been better equipped to deal with the death of their loved ones. While both are tragedies, this one is more senseless and directed towards more unprepared victims who reasonably need more condolences.

    And its an election year, but that doesn't exactly make it a sham, considering all politicians, by nature, would do this.

    Think about it, this is a stupid question. He is only going to Aurora for the attention and news coverage he will get; after all it's an election year. As for Fort Hood he could not go because the shooter was one of his brothers.

    He attended the memorial after the Giffords shooting. I think it's great he is going to Aurora. No idea about the Ft. Hood shooting. Scheduling conflict or maybe another head of state was in DC.

    So he was not going out of this way

    Obama plans to fly west a day before a previously scheduled three-day campaign swing that will take him to Reno, San Francisco, Portland, Ore., Seattle and New Orleans. The president intends to continue on that trip after the Aurora visit, spending Sunday night in San Francisco, according the White House.

    I think it is both election year politics in which he is siezing a tragedy to make sympathic gestures as president and receive points. But also, it is an oppurtunity to use this event to further his own gun control agenda. What is more effective than taking a tragic shooting to get people motivated about gun control. Obama never lets a crisis go to waste.
