Obama to Hand Mic to Newtown Victim's Mom for Weekly Radio Address [Exploitative Stunt]
WEEKLY STANDARD ^ | 4/12/13

Posted on 04/12/2013 12:02:39 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

This week's presidential radio address will be delivered by the mother of a victim of the Newtown massacre, the AP reports.

"The White House says the mother of a Newtown shooting victim will deliver the weekly presidential radio and Internet address," reports the AP.

"President Barack Obama typically gives the talk, focusing on a topic that's in the news or a policy the White House is pushing.

"This week, Obama has asked Francine Wheeler to deliver the address instead. Wheeler and her husband, David, lost their 6-year-old son Ben in the December schoolhouse shooting in Newtown, Conn."

-> What a disgusting exploitative stunt.

I so agree, Sad part also..

Some of these families want to be used as a prop to rid us from our right to own a firearm. They have no idea, the criminals would be left with the guns.

Hiding behind women and children for the ultimate item of a tyrant’s agenda.

Odumbo is a POS. What can we do when we have a low-life illegal alien for a p-resident?

When Barry went to Newtown to pick up these unregistered lobbyists to fly them back to his District of Corruption to harrass defenders of the Second Amendment, I never thought they’d be there for a week. We know who paid to fly them there but who is paying for their food and lodging while they assault the Second Amendment of our Bill of Rights? The taxpayers? Shouldn’t Barack the Kenyan be flying in some NRA members to lobby the Senators to defend the Bill of Rights? How about a little fairness here!

Obama never gave the mic to any of the Benghazi victim’s families..Obama is laughing behind these Newtown’s victims families backs..I feel for these families but they are being used and manipulated by Obama who doesn’t give a crap about them

Disgusting! But disarming the people is necessary to fully enslave them. And, as Marx taught, certain immoral things must be done if the Dictatorship of the Proletariat (and, in his wet dreamworld, perfect communism) is to be achieved.

You want to know who Obama did NOT bring on Air Force One with him..Matt Mattioli, the father of James Mattili, who was killed in Newtown, want to know why..because Matt doesn’t agree with Obama’s grabby gun agenda..he was on Fox News with Megyn Kelly and is totally against Obama’s “Gun control” agenda, because of this he wasn’t invited on the plane

Totally agree that this is a classless, low stunt. However, this is war, and the GOP needs to grow a pair and respond in kind — turn over the weekly response to a pro-2A Newton parent. (But please, vet the living daylights out of them first, because you know the media will go into full palace-guard mode against him or her).

Perhaps the Republicans should start using the term “human shield” ... to describe the exploitation of this woman.

Rush was discussing this earlier. One caller was “offended” because another caller accused them of being tools and UNREGISTERED LOBBYISTS. That’s exactly what they are. Useful idiots being used by the DemocRATS to push through more unpopular legislation. As far as I’m concerned, they lost their non-political labels when they climbed aboard Air Force One to become political hacks for the anti-Bill of Rights DemocRATS. They are now fair game in the political arena. JMO.

A great idea. I like it.

They try to manipulate emotions because they can’t win a reasoned arguement.

Emotion is all they have.

Either some of the parents of these victims are so vulnerable they can be manipulated or coerced so easily.

Or they must really happy their kid was murdered, because they seem to really like feeling like they are the president’s best friend and never passing up a chance to be in front of a camera.

Right out of the Alsinsky playbook, never let a tragedy go to waste.Obama and the RATS are shameless as all get out. To use the poor grieving, unfortunate parents of Newtown as political pawns is outrageous. There is nothing in this bill that would have saved their children.

Which media will report the number of abortions in Connecticut that were done the same day/week as the Newtown incident?
Rhetorical?

Anyone can go talk to Congress...just like anyone can give the State of the Union speech.
Sure. Right.

We should have Chicago crime victims read all the president’s teleprompter speeches. We could have a speech reader every 12 hours, 6 days a week.

The democrips have been exploiting the slaughter of alive unborn children for deacdes. Why would exploiting the parents of slain children be any different? The democrips are bloody ghouls ... perhaps we should rename little barry bastard boy to ‘ghoul-in-chief’?

The Surrender Party isn’t interested in responding. The kenyan and other Dems have brow beat them in the most vile terms over the last 12 years. Yet they have consistently refused to engage the Democraps. Fine. If they aren’t interested in fighting for our constitutional rights, I am not interested in voting for those beltway buffoons.
