    Why does Obama have to run down there? These people are grieving, their family members have just been murdered, and Obama and his motorcade has to run down there

    Well I really dont mind it, sure it's a political stunt, but it is a pretty serious issue. I hope he doesnt turn it political, because then I wont be so nice. Also I'd like to hear him say he'd feed the culprit (whoever it is, not trying to blame the guy in custody yet) to sharks with fricken laser beams on their heads.

    Oh, so it's a "photo op" instead of being presidential?

    I can just hear you wingnuts whining if he didn't go: "Where's Obama?"... "He doesn't care"... "He's un-American"...

    You know, I'm no fan of our President, but this is the right thing to do.

    If he uses this visit as a campaign tool, then you can criticize the man.

    You know I am FAR from an Obama supporter but I do believe he shoudl go there. They need to know the president is behind them in this tragedy

    It's what Presidents do and it means a lot to the families

    Of course, if he didn't go, we would get twice as many threads about how he doesn't give a shit about the victims

    I bet his Secret Service detail will be armed to the teeth.

    Exactly.

    Like they did about the BP oil spill and the wild fires.

    Just incredible.

    The guy can't catch a break.

    Well..with most of these folks..a couple of them do give him props from time to time.
