As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama to Lead the Nation in Moment of Silence

From the White House:

Tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. eastern standard time, I call on Americans to observe a moment of silence to honor the innocent victims of the senseless tragedy in Tucson, Arizona, including those still fighting for their lives.  It will be a time for us to come together as a nation in prayer or reflection, keeping the victims and their families closely at heart.”

The President will observe the moment of silence with White House staff on the South Lawn. The moment of silence will be pooled press.

Today, the President has signed a proclamation calling for flags to be flown at half-staff.

Also, the planned trip by the President to Schenectady, New York, on Tuesday, January 11, to the General Electric energy division is postponed.  The trip is expected to be rescheduled.

  1. I guess that means he isn’t watching football today being so stricken with grief. People, like BO, with NPD only fake emotions.

    I think most of the grief leftists are feeling is there inability to pin it on the right although they are giving it their best try.

  2. It’s a nice gesture–did they do it for the Virginia Tech thing–the Ft Hood? All the worplace sprees? The mother-in-law plus kids sprees? Is this because it’s a member of Congress and a judge? And they think they can link it to this state…paint this state as bad? See? We were right to sue–those Arizonans are nuts!
