7. Part of what he said was ...


Obama: "We're going to have to come together to prevent meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics."


There should be VIDEO all over the net of his full speech soon.

I recommend you watch the whole thing, it was very emotional.

2. His speech was wonderful.

I just realized all over again how thankful I am that he's going to be our President for the next four years.

14. His speech is one aspect of it

That does not make it "all about" him.

And if he said nothing, what would we hear from you? Praise for staying out of it and not politicizing it?

5. His statement was appropriate, IMO

He talked about the need to take action to prevent it happening again, regardless of the politics. That was the right response for now. I hope that after the dust settles from this he will push for stronger gun laws. I know he hasn't in the past, but I think something like this changes the national conversation, and maybe even his own personal views.

6. Not the greatest saying to use in your OP.

But yeah, his statement was spot on.

15. Now ...

Let's just wait to see how long it takes for a DU to bash President Obama for, either, not having dealt with this already, or now that he has spoken on it twice ... not solving it tomorrow?
