President Obama Calls Dec. 14th 2012 Sandy Hook School Shooting Worst Day of His Presidency

mtpBy Victor Trammell

President Obama called December 14, 2012 the absolute worst day of his presidency. On the fateful morning of that day, 26 people were killed in the second worst school shooting in American history. A lone gunman walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and moaned down teachers, faculty, and 20 children aged five to six years old.

In an interview Sunday with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” President Obama spoke of the tragedy in Newtown as the lowest point in his time as president and vowed to put his “full weight” behind new anti-gun laws aimed to prevent such tragedies. Obama also questioned the credibility of the National Rifle Association (NRA) for proposing the placement of armed guards in schools follwing the Sandy Hook massacre.

The president’s alternative to the problem will include rallying the American people to support his anti-gun agenda, which includes banning assault weapons and magazines that can hold high levels of bullets. He also said that promoting anti-gun legislation will be one of his main goals in 2013. “It is not enough for us to say, `This is too hard so we’re not going to try,’” Obama said in his Sunday interview.

“I think there are a vast majority of responsible gun owners out there who recognize that we can’t have a situation in which somebody with severe psychological problems is able to get the kind of high capacity weapons that this individual in Newtown obtained and gun down our kids. And, yes, it’s going to be hard,” the president added.

Criticizing the NRA’s proposed solution to gun violence Obama said:  “I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools. And I think the vast majority of the American people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem. The question then becomes whether we are actually shook up enough by what happened here that it does not just become another one of these routine episodes where it gets a lot of attention for a couple of weeks and then it drifts away. It certainly won’t feel like that to me. This is something that – you know, that was the worst day of my presidency. And it’s not something that I want to see repeated.”

  1. Once Again, only white folks are more important than anyone else with this president. Black people we elected the wrong brother for president, unfortunately. The 500 black killings in Chicago last year meant nothing to him I guess.

    • positivity speaks with common sense

      You guessed RIGHT! Obama actually thought that he could sit by and watch the children of black parents being killed because it didn’t/couldnt affect his daughters in their lilly white school, and Sandy proved him dead WRONG! The devil is a lie!

    • I didn’t vote for neither one of these pawns because both of these parties are the same…THEY HATE BLACK PEOPLE!

      O’Drama HATES his own people, just like Lincoln, WHO WAS ALSO, A MULATTO, who HATED Blacks just to please caucasoids during his presidency.

      I HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THIS MULATTO because when it comes to helping Black people, O’Drama is full of DRAMA!

      I hope you negroids wake up in 2013, and stop being so godda*mn submissive, weak, and scared to speak up to caucasoids! And, release yourselves from the bondage of xtianity.

      Ukuthula!

      • you are foolish not to vote. romney is a religious man who would have done RIGHT because of his religious convictions. he has no history of mistreating blacks. he would have done what is in the best interest of ALL OF AMERICA but your black rascism wouldn’t let you hear him.

        you are going to pay a HIGH price for believing that all of white america is your enemy.

        the only thing that white america is doing right now is sitting by and letting your black president, and foreign blacks/browns destroy black america. THEY ARE NOT STEPPING IN TO STOP THE CARNAGE, and who could blame them when black rascist greatest wish is to destroy them.

        the head of your justice dept is the foreign negro eric holder who wants to see his caribbean blacks rise at black america’s expense.

    • …Or the 400 murders in Detroit in 2012 along with 1,200 non-fatal shootings. (In a city with 1/6th of Chi-Town population)
      We. Are. In. Terrible. Shape.

      • Wow they genociding all of you. I shudder to think of how few of you will be left in 4 more years.

        • All of us. Katherine.Us.

          • No, Not Us!

            If you know whites like I do, you know that they set the TRAP, the pothole and then watch the average black fall into it. Now, How do you avoid falling into the trap???

            WORKING HARD

            You can survive this. Yes, you can.

  2. “Moaned down?” I wish this site would proofread sometimes.

    Not to take anything away from Sandy Hook because it is awful but I can think of many other tragedies during Obama’s reign that are just as low. I hate it when people take out their issues on the defenseless. I also hate it when Obama postures with “throwing around his weight” when he has not done so for four years. I wish he would be different— or at least the same as every other President that really wanted something bad enough to go to bat.

    I am tired of Obama hanging his head and bending over instead of taking a stance and ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Frankly, gun control is the wrong time and place to start with this nation’s financial crisis and unemployment. He should have been forcing the Republicans to either submit on the cliff or totally alienate their audiences by voting against meaningful measures instead the of nonsense deal coming out of the Senate.

    This situation is enough to cause psychological problems in people who normally might not want assault wespons… or to spend time training with the Doomsday Preppers.

  3. Maybe when the black community takes a stand,somebody else will. Sandy Hook people came out in droves after their tragedy. We only yell when white people kill us, when its black on black nobody says anything. When our young kids get caught in the crossfire nobody holds the guilty parties accountable. Yet we are outraged when other people don’t stick their necks out!! These are our communities, let’s stick our neck out FIRST

    • positivity speaks with common sense

      Latrice I just read in the news the other day that a old black man in Chicago, was arrested after he shot a black teenager breaking into his home.

      You can do the job, we pay taxes for police to do, and get arrested to, if you’re foolish enough to do so.

  4. Where were all these negative complaints against the President of the United States when (they were white) about the slaying of Blacks in New York, Chicago, Detroit (Murder Capital)etc. What do you want him to do…negotiate with the Black drug pushers to try to get them to stop. That job belongs to the police in your community to protect you from these criminals…that’s what you pay them to do. It is not the job of the President. Who by the way came to the defense of the President when he said the police where just plain wrong when they arrested the professor in his own home. Where was the outcry.

    Be fair people, if someone walked into a predominately Black school and killed 20 children ages 6,7,8., rest assure the President of the United States (regardless of who occupies the office)will have something to say about the situation.

    Those kids were not “drug dealers protecting their territory”.

    • You stupid.

      Anyone who CONTRIBUTES TO THE DELINQUENCY OF A MINOR IS THE CRIMINAL – NOT THE CHILD. If you dont believe that try having s*x with an underage girl.

      IN CASE YOU’RE TOO DUMB TO KNOW, OBAMA HAS THE POWER TO SHUT DOWN THE DRUG LORDS JUST LIKE RONALD REAGEN DID IN THE 1970 AND 1980. The president has the power to DECLARE WAR ON A COUNTRY, or ON DRUG DEALERS. He is the head of the military powers:
      CIA
      FBI
      HOMELAND SECURITY
      ARMY
      NAVY
      COAST GUARD

      The local police ANSWER TO THE FEDERAL AGENCIES. They know everything that is going on, and the citizens know what is going on if they watch the national geographic channel’s Drug Inc program.

      SO YOU BELIEVE THAT TEENAGE BOYS ARE SMARTER THAN ALL THESE INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES, AND OUR ARMED FORCES???? U CRAZY AND DUMB

  5. @ Art – “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” – Gun violence doesn’t discriminate! Your position is without merit under the guise of a democratic society – addressing stricter gun control policies, which gets more attention (press for the cause)through certain populations in the US. I am not complaining about the POTUS but merely making an observation!

  6. Once again black folks defend this president to the end. Over 500 hundred murders in Chicago and he won’t address the issue. The man is a joke and so are the black folks that voted for him just because he’s black. The man is going to extend FISA, wall street members continue to avoid jail, indefinite detention for Americans. How many children has he killed with his drone campaign. He continues the war on drugs which helps fuel the violence. But black folks will ignore all this.

    • You a lie. Black people are angry now, and going to become a lot more angry when he allows or secretly supports their welfare checks getting cut off.

      Remember THE PRESIDENT HAS THE POWER TO VETO ANY BILL THAT THE REPUBLICANS TRY TO PASS.

      • Well, you will need to find a job. Welfare is a stopgap, not a lifestyle. And its you’re a liar, not you a lie.

      • Isn’t it about time we work to get off welfare?

        The only reason most get welfare is they were born in America! They often have done nothing to earn it.
        People like you Katherine, talk about their welfare checks, It’s my money! Some changes need to be made!

        People living off welfare most of their life is just wrong! Food stamps, a check in the mail, subsidized housing and more. I may not be in the 1% I am however still paying and my taxes keep going up to pay for among other things, welfare! Obama is spending like it’s someone else’s money! The Debt and Deficit will reach a certain level the 1st thing to go will be welfare! I’m sorry the Democratic’s should be working with the Republicans to get this under control before drastic actions have to be taken and we all live to regret not controlling this mess. If you don’t know what I’m speaking of, The budget year began in Sept. of 2012, it January and the government is out of $$ already, so now they have to borrow enough to carry us through August 2013, TRILLIONS! Oh never mine, you won’t understand, and I’m sure you think everything will be OK because it always has been OK! It’s not going to be OK and the President is not helpful, not telling the truth to you.

  7. Love him, but if he thinks Sandy Hook is the worst day of his presidency, then he ain’t seen nothing yet. Just wait until the negotiations for the Country’s budget begin. Talk about a royal pain in the rear, he’ll soon have one.

    • So while he has no sympathy for the black masses who are being murdered, you want us to feel sorry for him because he has secret service, a mansion, and a million dollar job, and that his job is a little difficul??? LOL LOL u crazy

      None of these bugets will affect his salary and he has proved he doesn’t give a d**n about you and we’re supposed to feel sorry for him??? u crazy

      While black women and children starve when their welfare check is cut off, we’re supposed to feel sorry for him??? He doesn’t give a sh8t about chicago’s children dieing by bullet, and we’re supposed to believe he is sincere with his little PRETEND budget cut stress???u crazy

      Tax cuts only affect working people. Black people aint working much. u crazy

    • He loves you too Wanda.

  8. @ positivity. I live in chicago, so I know these horror stories up close and personal. You know what should have happened with this situation? This older gentleman should have been able to go to this kid’s parents and all h**l should have broke loose. If that failed the community as a whole should have went to this kids home and demanded some action. He should never have been put in a situation like this. We don’t protect our elderly or our kids. We can get mad and yell injustice all day long about who cares and who don’t. The POTUS does not live in these communities. When he is not in office we will still be there. Whoever is in office, we will still be there. So let’s stand together and shine a spotlight on things that are not right in our neighborhoods. There are more of us doing the right thing than the wrong thing. So let us not be intimidated. Let’s put an end to the massacre of our children and our young black men!!!!

  9. And for the record, I am not defending the POTUS. I am not defending anybody. I am begging, BEGGING for us to do something. I want an organization to be formed, consisting of all members from all these communities. When something happens we should ALL descend on that neighborhood and on the police stations to demand action, justice and a halt to the madness. I don’t have all the answers nor do I pretend to have them. But I believe in my heart the solution starts with us.

    • Very good. DESCEND ON THE POLICE STATION AND THE MAYOR. They will lock you up with the criminal if you take justice in your own hands.

      WHITE COMMUNITIES HAVE DIRECT EMAILING SYSTEMS TO THE POLICE DEPT, AND ANONYMOUSLY EMAIL IN SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY, AND THEY HAVE CITIZEN MONITORS WHO REPORT SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY, AND THEY KNOW THAT THEIR POLICE WILL PROTECT THEM.

      In Chicago I saw old negroes -
      blaming victim teenage children
      saying stupid stuff like they dont like each other
      avoiding the foreign stores and streets where they know drug trading is going on, and really believing that if they sit by and allow their neighors to be killed, that the murder/mayhem wouldn’t end up on their door step

      If you want to have a safe community, YOU HAVE TO PROTECT EACH OTHER, AND CARE ABOUT EVERYONE’S CHILD.

      AND YOU MUST KNOW WHO THE ENEMY IS.

      You also must understand that the 3rd world blacks/browns WANT WHAT YOU HAVE, AND ARE DELIBERATELY shooting up your neighborhood to run you out of it, so that they can take it over for their new homeland.

      You might not think that your home is worth much, but people who have lived in caves know you are living in a mansion.

      • You do know the enemy look like you and I, to protect our communities one would have at the least rat out a brother or take a few out at the worse!

  10. 6 more weeks before we forget all about gun control in America. 500 dead black kids in Chicago, or 20 dead white kid in Sandy Hook, a few bucks to the right people and we’ll be back to talking about Basketball Wives, and Kanye and Kim, We are a gullible race of people.

  11. The worst day should’ve been when his hometown-Chicago-reached 500 homicides.

  12. What if the violence on Blacks in Chicago is not the result of Black-on-Black? What if some of law enforcement, the Klan and/or some other racist organization are using the hype to execute Blacks? Most of the murders are unsolved.

    Where are the guns coming from? What happens to the guns once they are confiscated by law enforcement? here in Ky. deputies were arrested for stealing guns from evidence and selling them in the community. Hmmm!

    • You dumb azz chicagoans love your crack so d**n much that you refuse to acknowledge that you are having the same drug wars that Miami had with the cocaine cowboys in the 70′s and 80′s. Watch Scarface if you want the d**n answers it is a TRUE story. Stop blaming black victim teenage children you d**n fool. They dont make guns. They dont have thousands of dollars to spend on automatic weapons, and they sure the h**l aint free, unless you take the crack, cocaine, and heroin that the south americans, caribeeans, and africans give you to protect their drugs and sell them.

      If you love drugs more than life, then keep dieing bish, and keep proving it.

      You are right about negro leaders knowing exactly and quite possibly profiting from the continuous of your childrens’ murders. They know about the drug trade, and they know how to stop it, but they keep victimizing focusing on each other.

      Ronald Reagen sent the armed forces down to Miami and now that city is wonderful again.

  13. Conshus,
    As the sayng goes, “just because you sound paranoid does not mean the accusations you make are not true.” You probably wil benefit by conversing wih real people at some point soon with your evidence. Just sayng…..;

  14. Either we are gonna stop being afraid of our own shadow and DO SOMETHING or we need to shut the h**l up. I don’t care WHO we have to face. I don’t care WHAT we have to face, let’s stand the h**l up. ‘A man who stands for nothing, will fall for anything’

    • Stop talking like a fool. The enemy would love to take you down with the criminal. you pay taxes and lots of it for police protection

  15. We should be writing our thoughts to the white House 1600 Pensylvania Ave, Washington, DC. He should respond to the annoyance the black community feels smh. I’ve awaited his second term hoping he’ll address problems that are uniquely ours. There’s still time. sigh..we shall see.

  16. Sandy hook would be the worst day of my presidency too. And any shooting anywhere would also contribute to a terrible day. RIP, Sandy Hook victims.

  17. I feel very sorry for what happened at Sandy hook, but lets be real. It is not a gun problem here, but a cultural problem. This is what need to be faced, and get out of the denial syndrome.

    Every day infant deaths are reported because of delayed detection in any cessation of movement or respiratory issues. As a solution this pertinent issue, Baby Sense V has been created which is capable of detecting even the slightest change in the infant’s position. This monitor doesn’t have any side-effects or the difficulty of using. It can be kept under the bedding of the baby and even the micro-movement that happens when the infant is sleeping is recorded. The early trigger on issues has aided in saving many infants ever since it has been administered in some of the hospitals. It is easy to use and has proved to be very helpful.”
