Obama plays politics with tragedies

The murder of innocent young children and adults in Newtown is a gory reminder of man’s inhumanity to man. It deserves our deepest sympathy and our prayers for the families devastated by this inhuman act of terror.

Obama was swift to insert himself, emphasizing how the victims were robbed of their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Yet this is the same guy who approves late-term murder — I mean abortion.

Obama prostituted the tragedy by immediately engaging in politics, making veiled insinuations that gun owners and the NRA had a possible cause-and-effect responsibility for this monstrous crime.

He sees this as a golden opportunity to begin dismantling the Second Amendment as the first step toward deploying his own private security force. Of course the media applauded their “darling” for his swift determination.

However, did Obama act with swift determination to resolve the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Allen? No, Obama wasn’t interested in justice whatsoever. He stonewalled the entire matter.

Did Obama act with such swift determination to prosecute Nidal Malik Hasan, who murdered 13 soldiers and wounded 32 more at Fort Hood? No, after years of coddling him, justice will probably never be served, especially with Obama in the White House.

Did Obama act with such swift determination when Ambassador Charles Steven, Sean Smith, Alan Doherty and Tyrone Woods were murdered by Islamic terrorists at Benghazi? No, Obama was too busy partying at the time and is now lying through his teeth along with his cohorts, attempting to cover up his “patriotism” with resignations and upset stomachs.

Like Emperor Nero, Obama determines justice not on humanity but on what puts the most feathers in his nest.

Not all vultures in Washington live in zoos.
