Shame on you, Barack Obama. You do come out after each horrible event and try to rally the country to your dream of reducing the political influence of those who choose to own guns.
You called tonight to politicize this event, saying it is something that SHOULD be politicized.
Last weekend there were 50 shootings in Chicago – but not a word from you. The week before there were another 50 shootings in Chicago, and again, no outrage as our young people are cut down by violent thugs.
But when the country’s attention is turned to what is truly a horrible event, you rush to the microphone to call attention to your pet cause, ignoring the fact that it is NOT the biggest item on the minds of Americans. Shame on you.
Call for unity, fine! Call for prayers, certainly. But Call your Congressman??? Calling attention away from the grief and horror that we share witnessing this event is a shameless, disrespectful and despicable act.
There’s plenty of time for politics. You shameless politician, you attention whore – you stepped over the line by dragging these innocent victims, bodies still warm, some in surgery, into your obsessive political battle.
Go play golf and let us be.
