Obama meets with families of shooting victims



After offering condolences to relatives of last week's shooting victims in Oregon, President Obama said Friday the nation should "come together" and figure out how to prevent mass killings in the future.

"I've obviously got very strong feelings about this," Obama said during brief remarks after meeting with family members at a high school in Roseburg, Ore.

Obama, who last week called for more gun control and said he planned to politicize the issue in the week of this latest shooting, kept his remarks short, saying, "we're going to have to come together as a country, but today is about the families."



So does this mean he will be getting on a plane next and going to visit the doctor's without borders hospital that got bombed?

Doctors Without Borders Are Now Doctors in Anguish


About 2 a.m. on Oct. 3, Afghanistan time, medical staff and patients at the Medecins Sans Frontieres hospital in Kunduz heard the sounds of bombing, louder and closer than they'd heard before. By the time it was over, at least 12 medical workers and seven patients were dead and the hospital was in flames.

"Nine patients are still unaccounted for, and we have not been able to reach 24 of our 461 staff members," says Jason Cone, executive director of MSF, also known as Doctors Without Borders. "It's possible that some of them are dead." Unable to continue its work, MSF withdrew from the hospital in Kunduz as the fighting continued.


And shouldn't he be flying all the American embassy flags at half mast for this atrocity? Mr. Hypocrite in OFFICE?

First , why was it a hospital? These should have been clearly tagged as such. Second , they kept up the attack for 30 minutes after they were notified it was a hospital ? I am a good ol USA citizen but this is a direct violation of Geneva Convention.

"I've obviously got very strong feelings about this," Obama said during brief remarks after meeting with family members at a high school in Roseburg, Ore.
Obama actually said,

"The reporting is routine, my response here at this podium is routine, the conversation in the aftermath of it — we've become numb to this," Obama said from the briefing room at the White House. "What's also routine is that somebody somewhere will say, 'Obama politicized this issue.' Well, this is something we should politicize. It is relevant to our common life together".
It needs deep discussion man. The NRA needs to be in there talking too...the right to bear arms meme is not selective as per the American constitution, however arms and delivery have moved on..Nuclear, LASER, all sorts of stuff?

Remember it's only OK for him and the government to be "Good at killing people".

Ruthless people in power, folks!

RIP little ones

Can we not agree that his comments were appropriate? He said politics can wait, this is about the families.

Well good on Obama, going down there to see the families. Whatever he does though, he'll be damned if he does, damned if he doesn't when it comes to a segment of the population.

What about the many Afghan lives lost and the Pakistani lives lost? How about whenever somebody dies somewhere in the world and it's connected to the United States, Obama has to react and fly the flags half mask? I mean I'm sure these unrealistic standards you're applying to this president (that you don't like regardless of what he does) are the same standards you'll be applying to others and congress, right?

The answer is no. Make any excuse.

(CNN)A week after a gunman killed nine people and himself at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, President Barack Obama met with survivors and grieving families behind closed doors on Friday


www.cnn.com...

Behind closed doors.

Don't tread on me Flags, Gun free zones. Protests.

Yeah people.

Obama is still pushing his political agenda.



"There are gonna be moments as we go forward where we're gonna have to come together and figure out how do we stop things like this from happening," Obama said


Translation.

Get on your knees and take what's left of your constitutional RIGHTS.

That awkward moment when Obama calls for more gun control right after bombing a hospital.

I know, right? There is so much hypocrisy surrounding gun control, it is okay to go kill innocent people in the Middle East and at the same time call for gun control here. The guy is a tool.

do you ever get tired of carrying water for your hero Obama?

yes he should have had them fly half mast, just like he should have done for the Marines killed earlier in the year

The families didnt want him there, period and he should have respected that

We do not need gun control, we need to exercise self control, guns do not shoot themselves and bombs do not hurl themselves.

I wish one of the family members would say " Excuse me, this is a private conversation between A. My Family and B. The People who CARE and we have no room for ASS Hats so why don't you just C. yourself OUT!" And then slam the door in his hypocritical face!!
