The headline in the Hill:
Obama: Mass shootings are 'something we should politicize'On Thursday, President Obama tried to turn into a political circus a shooting rampage in Oregon -- the tenth such school shooting since Columbine 16 years ago.
He failed just as he failed on Sandy Hook because the public is sickened by the political opportunism of this ghoul. There is no human tragedy he will not seek to capitalize. He swoops in before any facts are known, to push for laws.
From the Hill:
President Obama on Thursday made an impassioned case that gun violence is “something we should politicize” following a mass shooting at a community college in Oregon.
A visibly angry Obama blasted Congress for being unwilling to change the nations gun laws in response to a wave of mass shootings that have cast a cloud over his presidency.
“This is a political choice that we make, to allow this to happen every few months in America,” Obama said. “We collectively are answerable to those families who lose their loved ones because of our inaction.”
Obama chided opponents of gun control legislation, including those who argue the country needs “more guns” to prevent mass shootings. And he urged proponents of stricter gun laws to vote for political candidates who share their views.
“Each time this happens I’m going to bring this up,” Obama said. “Each time this happens I am going to say we can actually do something about it.”
At least 10 people were killed and seven wounded when a gunman opened fire Thursday morning at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore., according to law enforcement officials. Police said the alleged shooter, a 20-year-old male, was killed.No comfort for the families of the victims. No solace. Nothing but blind rage and political opportunism.
This is better than Romney?
Such is liberalism in the 21st century. Abortion has numbed them from their humanity.
