    Is using children to make an emotional appeal to the public "abuse of children" in your opinion?
    If so, then the media certainly is reporting his "abuse."

    and sure, it is making for better TV ratings and barrels of big time money, no doubt about that. The weeping mother talking about how we must pass gun control measures that have nothing to do with the causes of the Sandy Hook massacre no doubt helps pump up viewership as well.

    Why do it? Would a rational discussion of the causes of this disaster and the best way to respond to it increase viewership?

    Well according to DCFS exploitation of Children for ones Personal gain is an abuse. Which someone had posted up before. So they know what they have in the DCFS Booklet and their All their various forms with descriptive terminology. So it is like forms can be shown on Camera.....that there is President using Children and Tragedy and has brought it back up into the Media after the issue was being laid to rest. With more current events that were coming along.

    So the constant harping about it would have to force Obama to change tactics. Since then he could not play on the kids or that tragedy anymore. Which means no more tears and crying out for Emotional rescue.

    As is the MSmedia is reporting every gun shooting they can and trying to embellish upon all said events. Its way over the top......last night in Chicago these morons reported someone shot a dog. No Suspect......just a dog found dead that had been shot. Nothing else. No witnesses, no perp. Nothing. But lets report it as news anyways.....Right? Yeah.....and that's what they did.

    Be great if they saw someone shooting the dog and all that.

    The Other point is Obama isn't even having to have what he calls a fair and equal debate about it.....as it stands now. He talks and talks. But Don't have to listen. That needs to be changed in any way it can.

    No...but your sense of moral outrage apparently fluctuates based on your stance on 'the cause'.

    wow some cold hearted people in this thread! Some of you need to take a step back and take a look at yourselves, attacking the mother of a child shot down in his school is a disgrace.

    And what does abortion have to do with the Sandy Hook Massacre?

    When doctors start shooting fetuses with guns, come back and see me.

    Then she shouldnt be out there. If she wants to inject herself into the middle of a highly charged political issue, then she need to be prepared for the scrutiny that will follow. But that is the reason the left dragged her out there in the first place--so they could label any disagreement with her as just being hateful rhetoric from meanies on the right. Since the left cant win on facts and reason, they are trying emotion. But that is all leftism is anyway.

    I wouldn't call it scrutiny I would call it disdain on the border of hatred but I mean how dare this women who lost her child in a shooting massacre do something she see's as constructive with her grief. Its interesting though how yourself and many other posters like to make out that she is being dragged into the public eye. Any links or facts to back up the assumption that the Obama administration is forcing her into this?

    that's usually what happens when folks abuse the sympathy extended to them...especailly when they abuse it in the name of politics/public policy agenda.

    Im sorry she lost a child ... i'm not gonna remain silent while she , and the administration, use that to push a political agenda I oppose though.... not gonna happen, nor should it happen.

    Never let a good crisis go to waste. Way to milk these grief stricken people for all the political capital you can gain President Obama.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    you can disagree with her but you can still respect her as a person and a grieving mother which many people in this thread have neglected to do.
