    She is mourning yes, I'm not saying she's insincere, I am saying in her grief she is getting pimped.

    Oh, please. Using props to deliver his rhetoric is one of the extremely few things he does best.

    Gun Control: Prop up some parents of a tragedy. Don't worry. Just dangle a fat enough carrot in front of them, and they'll whore themselves out for anything.
    Health Care: Put some shills up there behind Obama. Make sure to put 'em in lab coats with stethoscopes around their necks. Doesn't matter if they're not doctors. The stupid masses will fall for it. Hell, they probably think those are real doctors on diet pill and hair loss commercials as well.
    Immigration Reform: Call up La Raza. Bring me some Mexicans.

    What? Whoring out grieving parents didn't work? Well bring me in some kids. People love kids. They're cheaper too.

    She is...and she may even be complicit. I dont think its fair to say she doesnt know she is being used. Its entirely probable that she has embraced this 'cause' as a way to make sense of her loss. Thats understandable. The reprehensible component comes when politicians who are tasked to lead a country do so by mindless emotional appeals.

    and if you allow yourself to be used in that manner than you deserve as much scorn as those who are pulling the strings. If you (generally speaking you, not you you)take up "the cause" attempt to deny me and mine the right because the loss of yours than you and I have a problem.

It seems that the loss of the adults (bread winners?) must be weighed against the loss of mere dependent children, but all seem to agree that distributing money is the answer, if crime victims are from the correct social classes. Didn't some (WTC only?) of the 9/11/2001 victim's families get about $1.7 million each directly from the gov't? Perhaps that should be used as the example (precedent?).
    That was just wrong.

    Every day people lose their spouse to violence. Should the taxpayers be obligated to make all of them millionaires?

    Private citizens, grief, and causes. Honestly...theres really nothing to attack there. You dont think someone like Cindy Sheehan is a tragic figure worthy of at least empathy?

    Politicians on the other hand...

    Mindless emotional pleading...what a great way to 'lead' a country.
    Then Flying them to Washington DC so they can lobby the Senators. Doesn't get any more blatant than that. But now People just need to call Obama out on that Abuse with the Children. It is clear in the DCFS definition of Child Abuse that Exploitation of Children for ones personal gain is indeed Child Abuse. So that needs to keep getting throw up into the Media.

    People need to be calling News stations and Newspapers complaining about his abuse of these Children. Making it a loud Ringing. See Obama does have those big azz ears on the side of that Head. But if he cant listen.....then his pathetic azz can surely read. So says the teleprompter.

    Nope, when you go in front of a camera and say "Look at me, look at my pain, do as I ask, please, please, please" you're not a private citizen grieving any longer.

    Cindy Sheehan is a different story, she was trying to end a War. Big difference than trying to prevent me from having the right to defend myself as I see fit or forcing me to be put on government watchlist.

    Of course not. This was done to protect the airlines (and their insurance companies) from taking the civil liability hit after 9/11. It should be noted that no public funds have been used (so far) for rewarding the Sandy Hook victim's families.

    ah... So the level of tolerance you have for a grieving parent extends only to the extent in which you agree or disagree with their 'cause'. I see. Can't help but wonder where that places you on the spectrum with grieving parents and explosive politicians.
