Joshua Dubois: What The President (Barack Obama) Secretly Did at Sandy Hook Elem. School...

https://voxpopulisphere.com/2015/12/11/10733/?share=email&nb=1

We haven’t had a leader, a decent human being, a grown man in The White House since the day Barack Obama’s term was over.

I got this far in:


Person after person received an engulfing hug from our commander in chief. He’d say, “Tell me about your son. . . . Tell me about your daughter,” and then hold pictures of the lost beloved as their parents described favorite foods, television shows, and the sound of their laughter.

I am grateful to have lived through his presidency. To have gone from such grace as this to the vulgarity we have now is obscene.

33. We went from CLASS to crass.

The gop treated President Obama very poorly, disrespectfully. They treat the orange fatass in office now as though he is a real human being. He has NO redeeming human qualities. He is a very fat, empty shell.

2. I've heard this before

it sickens me what the right tried to do to Pres. Obama. They created a monster that people I know truly believed he was doing everything he could to ruin this country and prop up his huge ego (funny cause they now love DJT). Even if you didnt agree w/ Obama's policies, how was it that they created this madman hell-bent on destroying our country. Even if you didnt like his policies, he had to seem like a good guy.

DJT has multiple affairs w/ porn stars, playboy bunnies and possibly hookers while he is newly married, has well over a dozen women come forward against him, and by God, the Lord has placed him here by divine right to save this land. I just dont get it.

7. DJT is a piece of shit because he has no regard for others.

Bill Clinton was a womanizer. So was JFK and many others. However, most of them understood that they had a supreme duty to fulfill to the American people, and did their best to respect the office and the people they served. They were flawed, like all humans are.

DJT is a treasonous pig with no sense of responsibility for anyone but his own ass. A bad person indeed who likes to hurt people and that will do whatever it takes to take advantage of any situation. The man had no humility or sense of public service... and 40% of America loves the bastard.

11. It is called the prosperity Bible

Certain religious groups + churches teach this. The more money you make, the more God has blessed you. It doesn't matter if you are a serial killer to these sects. If God has blessed you with great wealth you are allowed to do anything you want because you are blessed by God. You literally can do no wrong. These leaders will bring in babies for you to rape and murder, as you are blessed by God, it is your divine right to do this, you carry the word of God you are held to no moral code. Or they give you a "mulligan"

23. Foxxx is run by monsters, who hire monsters to deflect from the fact they are monsters.

Funny how Foxxx and their shit dear leader and NRA run from first amendment rights, while coldly screaming about the second.

" International comparisons help highlight how exceptional the United States is: In a nation where the right to bear arms is cherished by much of the population, gun homicides are a significant public health concern. For men 15 to 29, they are the third-leading cause of death, after accidents and suicides. In other high-income countries, gun homicides are unusual events. The Paris attacks in November 2015 killed 130 people, which is nearly as many as die from gun homicides in all of France in a typical year. But even if France had a mass shooting as deadly as the Paris attacks every month, its annual rate of gun homicide death would be lower than that in the United States.hil

31. I think guns are the problem---what did Obama do about them?

It's been almost 19 years since Columbine and NOTHING has been done about guns by any president since that time.

Not one damned thing.

5. from your link, Lilly...thank you

Person after person received an engulfing hug from our commander in chief. He’d say, “Tell me about your son. . . . Tell me about your daughter,” and then hold pictures of the lost beloved as their parents described favorite foods, television shows, and the sound of their laughter. For the younger siblings of those who had passed away—many of them two, three, or four years old, too young to understand it all—the president would grab them and toss them, laughing, up into the air, and then hand them a box of White House M&M’s, which were always kept close at hand. In each room, I saw his eyes water, but he did not break.

10. Don't think there was ever a question . . .

at how deeply President Obama was affected by Sandy Hook, how moved and later how angry when he spoke to the issue of the Congress's failure on the question of gun control. I'd read that Obama himself said that day was one of the hardest days of his presidency. But he handled the day and aftermath with dignity and grace and love.

What a difference to the Trumpster giving a thumbs up at the hospital, and then blaming the FBI for negligence.

The Donald was illegitimate from Day 1.

It's impossible to picture Trump doing anything close. I miss the Obamas so much, for many reasons. But foremost is because they have hearts. They're as beautiful inside as they are outside.

14. Do you remember...

Do you remember that on that day, President Obama was supposed to come out at a certain time to make a speech after meeting with the families? But he did not come out at the designated time that he was supposed to because he was still grieving with the families. He needed more time with them...the allotted time was not enough. Such a treasure he is!!

38. The man was as close to a saint as any human being gets. When I think of what he went through and

how he was able to retain his compassion and humanity I only admire him all the more. I can't believe we have gone from one of the best to the absolute worst in such a short period of time. It's just tragic. We have lost our soul.
