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

Video || Obama Immediately Politicizes the Shooting

President Obama marched directly to the podium of the White House briefing room Thursday and specifically turned the tragic shooting at an Oregon college into a political issue.

“This is something that should be politicized,” Obama said.

I wonder. Guns have always been available. And yet these shootings are occurring more than ever. What else is stoking it. Video games? Excessive attention to the issue?

The president of course didn’t mention that the shooting occurred in another gun-free zone, just like the one in July on a military base in Tennessee.

No guns allowed at the college where this happened. Unless you’re a murderer.

  1. I wonder if Barry will even mention this aspect of the shooting:

    “A gunman singled out Christians, telling them they would see God in “one second,” during a rampage at an Oregon college Thursday that left at least nine innocent people dead and several more wounded, survivors and authorities said.
    “[He started] asking people one by one what their religion was. ‘Are you a Christian?’ he would ask them, and if you’re a Christian stand up. And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you are going to see God in just about one second.’ And then he shot and killed them,” Stacy Boylen, whose daughter was wounded at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore., told CNN.”

    • Can you imagine if the gunman had asked the students if they were Muslim, what Obama’s reaction and narrative would be? But Christians, not a peep from this poor excuse of a man, much less a President. He should make a plaque for his office, “Never let a tragedy go to waste”

  2. Someone wrote on another website, that mass shootings have occurred more frequently since Obama has taken office.
    Could it have something to do with the breakdown of morals and the utter disregard for the sanctity of life that Barry so loves and hawks like a sideshow barker?
    Just sayin’

    • I learned last night on Hannity show.
      There was a retired Vet, there by the school. He heard the shots, ran to (help) with his gun, as he is has the right to bear. The School told him he could not enter the school property with the gun.

  3. We were learning through out the day about Russia. During the day, I thought maybe o would speak to the American people regarding the issue.
    Instead he gains his spotlight with this.

  4. From a local NBC affiliate in Chicago:

    “Last month, the New York Times reported Chicago saw the sixth highest murder rate increase so far this year when compared with other U.S. cities. The report indicated the city had 294 murders by the end of August, a 20 percent increase from 2014. According to Chicago police data, that number rose to 349 as of Sept. 20, up 21 percent from the year before.”

    This everyday, every weekend violence doesn’t bring MrObama to the podium to call out for stricter gun control because Chicago has already enacted those kinds of laws. No liberal member of the MSM is concerned about the carnage of Black people in the big cities ruled by Dem operatives.
    Yesterday, a deranged man shoots and kills White people and he can’t wait to voice his concern about people who own guns.

    • Yes, as well I am reminded that he didn’t not speak to even the parents of the young woman that was killed by the illegal.
      He is ignoring the victims of the people that have been injured or killed in the big cities.

      • My take is the msm all included have done a disjustice to us all.
        I don’t care what party, person is in office. I want to feel comfort that their is a bright future to our Country.

  5. Maybe, it’s just me……..President Obama did not seem saddened by this. In fact, he appeared to have a smile on his face. Perhaps, the smile was that this shooting stopped the nation from focusing on his inept performance at the UN and Syria.

    I don’t recall these type of events pre-cable news and the Internet. This type of coverage sickenly glorifies these tragedies. I wonder what type of antidepressant the killer was on.

  6. American culture has spent decades “othering” the Church, referring to God as a delusion, and tearing down the Cross and the Ten Commandments at the business end of a government gun.

    So I am shocked, shocked, to find that it was Christians who were singled out for execution.

    • He was fake fuming and my reaction was you are supposed to say something “comforting”–like I wept when I heard this–something–but no, it DESERVES to be politicized. Well, WE are sick of hearing that! Oregon HAD universal background checks, etc.

    • This guy may be the most inarticulate person in the entire Congress. Worse than that, his struggle with the English language often creates Norm Crosby or Leo Gorcey malapropisms which the D’s happily use as ammunition to show how stupid and evil the Republicans are. His current Clinton/Benghazi comments being the latest example.

      And here’s Norm Crosby, to make the point:

      • Norm Crosby was hilarious! Thanks Marcus.

        When McCarthy referred to Hillary as ‘untrustable’ – it was awkward. ‘Untrustworthy’? Yes.

        He also repeated his life altering story about the lottery/deli on at least 5 different shows. As if that qualifies him to be third in line for the presidency.

        There is a list somewhere of all the major issues wherein he refuses to take a stand. Leadership? My foot!

        • It’s like the R’s are just drawing straws or practicing primogeniture to find someone to replace Boehner. They looking for a Chauncey from “Being There”, at a time when we need a Braveheart to deal with the evil in the WH.

  7. We know that more gun laws do not mean less crime or fewer gun murders. But the issue is far more complex than simply passing or not passing gun laws, as noted in the sites below. Obama is blowing smoke to disarm law-abiding citizens, a life long goal. The criminals will always have their guns. He’s made no effort to disarm them. In fact, as in Fast and Furious, he goes out of his way to make sure they are armed. We do know that gun-free zones have an extremely high rate of gun murders. Obama doesn’t talk about that, does he?
