    Mother of Sandy Hook Victim Delivers White House Weekly Address.....[W322]

    Here is Obama once again making sure this Gun Control issue will remain a fight. Devious on top of it too. Those on Standing for the Second need to get out and start speaking. It cannot be just the NRA or those with them. People need to get on the media as of 3 months ago. I mean really speaking out. Holding events and attacking Obama and the left for attempting to break the 2nd and get around the Constitution. Seems the Anti gunners are attempting to put the Pro Gun Advocates on the defensive.....in defending our Right. This can no longer be tolerated. Time to go on the offensive.

    This means going after Obama for exploiting children and tragedy. Contacting media and Radio and always putting that out there for Obama and the Left to hear, and to keep on hearing. This means attacking them on their attempt to break the Constitution and the 2nd. This means going after those Republicans that are playing defense and looking to compromise the Rights of the people. It also means going after the likes of Bloomberg and other Democrats that are playing that Fence game. The media personalities need to be put in check about playing on all reports of shootings. As they have gone over the edge with it. It can only be countered if people stand up for their Rights and get out there talking. Going after all I said here. We cannot allow people to impose their Rights over ours. Especially when they are the minority.

    In a message traditionally reserved for the president, Francine Wheeler, whose 6-year-old son Ben was among the 20 students and six educators killed at Sandy Hook Elementary last year, delivered the White House’s weekly address today, urging the country to come together to support measures that proponents say will alleviate gun violence.



    “As you’ve probably noticed, I’m not the president. I’m just a citizen. And as a citizen, I’m here at the White House today because I want to make a difference,” Wheeler said. ”I’ve heard people say that the tidal wave of anguish our country felt on 12/14 has receded. But not for us. To us, it feels as if it happened just yesterday.

    “And in the four months since we lost our loved ones, thousands of other Americans have died at the end of a gun. Thousands of other families across the United States are also drowning in our grief. Please help us do something before our tragedy becomes your tragedy.

    After President Obama delivered a speech on gun violence in Connecticut Monday, the Wheelers were among the 11 families who traveled with the president on Air Force One to lobby members of Congress in Washington.

    The Senate voted Thursday in favor of considering a comprehensive gun package, which includes a new bipartisan background check deal brokered by Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.

    The president tweeted out a message Friday urging Americans to listen to the Newtown mother’s message.

    “Francine Wheeler, a Newtown mom, will take my place in tomorrow’s Weekly Address. It’s a message everyone should hear: #NowIsTheTime. -bo,” the president tweeted from the White House account. The signature “-bo” indicates the tweet was written and sent from the president himself.

    Wheeler is the first civilian to deliver the White House’s weekly address

    I don't know who is worse - her for being a prostitute for Obama, or Obama for prostituting her.

    Like Goshin said, she gets one vote, just like the rest of us.

    Let her enjoy here 15 minutes of fame, but her message is still bull****.

    Here is the Video.....can't believe Obama would use a Victim to give the Nation's Weekly Address. The Republicans responded with someone and all they talked about was Obama's Budget. There was no response to anything being said about Guns or protecting the 2nd. There was no Response to Obama's Emotional pleas, nothing being said about him using these people. Another First for Obama to.....the First President to Put a Civilian up there so they can go for the sympathy vote.

    Well it is hard for Obama to talk about budget matters, the wonders of Obamacare implementation delays or jobs so he sets the stage for diversion to "emergency" issues. The $800 million gun control bill is absolutely needed, never mind that it simply expands federal control (unconstitutionally?) to require that all "legal" private gun sales now go through federal gun nannies (for new fees, of course) and provides some additional (unspecified?) federal aid to local schools.

    Adding more federal power, control and spending is important, just ask Obama. Not that any connection between this newest gun control bill and preventing the Sandy Hook school shooting can be shown, but it does expand the federal gov't - so it must be good for us, as a nation. If you intend to add federal funding for local schools then it makes perfect sense to attach that to "gun control"; or am I getting that backwards?

    Please help by passing universal background checks. If only background checks had been in place in Connecticut, this horrible tragedy would have been prevented.

    Mindless emotional pleading...what a great way to 'lead' a country.

    Really, really poor taste on Obama's part, but I guess we've come to expect that from him.
