Michelle Obama's Letter To Newtown: 'Holding You In Our Hearts'
The Hartford Courant ^ | 12/21/2012 | Michelle Obama

Posted on 12/21/2012 7:24:43 PM PST by Daffynition

December 20, 2012

Over the past week, we as Americans have been united in our grief as Newtown has laid to rest so many beautiful, innocent children, along with the heroic educators who worked every day to help them achieve their dreams.

As a mother of two young daughters, my heart aches for you and your families. Like so many Americans, I wish there were something — anything — I could do or say to ease your anguish.

But I know that I cannot begin to imagine the depths of your grief. I know that for many of you, the pain you are enduring right now seems unbearable; and many of you may be asking yourselves, how can we go on — as families and as a community?

But I also know that we have already begun to see the answer to that question in the countless acts of courage, kindness and love here in Newtown and across America.

Over the past week, I have been awed and inspired by Newtown's heroes: the first responders who risked their lives at a moment's notice; the educators whose devotion to their students shone brightest in one of our nation's darkest hours; the children who comforted each other despite their fear; the families coming together to support each other as they grieve.

And I am so proud of the outpouring of love and support that has come from every corner of America:

First Lady Michelle Obama, Washington, D.C.

The left has gone so overboard I can honestly say I don’t care what happened at Sandy Hook.

For the past week, the Hartford Courant newspaper, which is normally very *thin* [Mon-Fri] has had pages and pages of news from Newtown; a few days ago, the tone of the paper was changed to express that the people of Newtown want to return to normalcy. Yet the Courant continues the line that the *assault weapon* used in the killings needs to be banned; they continue in every article to use the term *semi-automatic* with *assault rifle* interchangeably. Jon Lender, I'm surprised at you for putting your good name on this article

Of course. The two stories, flawed by witnesses too numerous to dispatch, had to mesh, and the perfect response from the first lady. Ain’t totalitarianism great? Rock on!

My first question to Moochelle is "why didn't the hospital that was paying you $350K/yr as a "community outreach coordinator" (or some such title) replace you after you moved to DC?"

Actually,that would be my second question.My first would be "why did you only develop a love for this country when it appeared that your meal ticket was gonna become President?"

I’m sorry to hear you say that. This was a tragedy that could have been prevented. Yet the left will not recognize that. Their laws and policies will not allow a teacher to be armed and trained to meet pure evil head on.

This is to suck support from the low information public so the master plan gets implemented: gutting the 2nd Amendment to bring safety. I can see right through her tactic.

As far as "Holding you in our hearts," this is the only thing they will think about:

A HC reporter, Susan Dunne, a bleeding heart Progressive, had the nerve to report how some businesses [florist, restaurants] in Newtown were flourishing while *they toil with love and heavy hearts*...with the new-found traffic in the town.

A local news outlet was showing video of the One waiting in the audience to go onstage to speak. I swear it looked as if he was asleep. Heh. I’m sure he was meditating.

“Holding you in our hands to be used as a good crisis would dictate” is more like it. Whenever this scum-bagette moochelle puts her hands on something, it is for the sole purpose of pushing the socialist agenda....this “husband and wife” duo are only interested in themselves and their socialist agenda. Whenever they pull out the prop known as a finger to wipe away their faux tears, they're exploiting someone or something for THEIR own good....they could give a damn about anyone else or anything else. And if I hear anyone from Fox News, or any other news source remark on how genuine oboma was in shedding almost tears for the children in Newtown, I will puke first and then tell them to knock off the boo-hoo talk...that it is all for show, as a means to a socialist end. oboma feels for no one...if he didn't have to marry a woman, as part of the bargain he made with his wife-to-be moochelle and Valerie Jarrett, who was also in on this coupling of these two people, if he didn't have to have children, as was demanded by moochelle as part of the marriage bargain, he would not have had any. obozo is a party boy, who likes drugs and MEN. The only one he ever loved were any one of his boyfriends, and maybe his father, which was/is a love-hate situation to be sure. Where moochelle was/is concerned, he has to put a paper bag over her head to “do the deed.” If he has to, he fakes it...wonder who gets him his drugs, and who is taking care his “male” needs these days???

Moo’s heart goes out to the 20 murdered 5-10 year olds, but aborting (murdering) 50,000 babies per day is okay.

Nor do they care enough about “the children” YOUR CHILDREN! that they would require all schools to be matched in security and security systems like they have in all government buildings to protect thier sorry a##es AND that they change THIER LAW they supported requiring the states thru the school system to house and nurture the mentally ill child and young adult in a normal environment with YOUR CHILD so the ill can really feel isolated from reality. I say to “holding you in our hearts” HOLD THIS!

We also need to go back to institutionalizing the serious mental illness cases. No more “home care”.
