    And not just for them, either, but as the President said, the child on the corner on Chicago as well as the other 900 shooting victims inthe past month, and all those who have fallen before.

    Enough.

    Obama and Sandy Hook kids

      That jackass professor from FL who made a video about a conspiracy that Newtown never happened is using photos with that same little girl in the red dress saying she is one of the victims reported and that this picture was taken after the shootings.

      An old girlfriend shared it on facebook this morning asking wtf the video was all about.

      It's heinous. I'm curious about the source and event this picture is from.

      •  This was released by White House photographer (7+ / 0-)

        Pete Souza as part of a year-end retrospective.  The official caption reads:

        December 16, 2012

        "Two days after the shootings at Newtown, the President traveled to Connecticut to meet with the victims' families and give remarks at a prayer vigil. The President spent hours greeting family members. Difficult as that was for everyone, the one moment that helped sooth the pain was when he posed for a photo with the siblings and cousins of Emilie Parker, one of the 20 children who died that day in Newtown. I see both sadness and hope in this photograph, and I know after a lot of tears that day, it meant so much to the President that everyone was able to smile for a moment in this family photo. Thanks to the Parker family for allowing us to show this photograph publicly." (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

          And he stated the little girl in the red dress IS Emilie Parker and that the parents, in on the conspiracy, screwed up by letting her into the photograph.

          What a douche. He's saying she was never shot. He is also saying the federal government employed actors that do disaster drills to facilitate the hoax.
          This guy needs a muzzle.

              brother in law Karl who is a Fire Police member of the Sandy Hook Fire Dept is also Dr. Wayne Carver, the Chief States Medical Examiner.

              As a retired Newtown Cop who worked with Dr. Carver on several fatal accidents, homicides and suicides as a detective, I can tell you my brother in law who directs traffic at fire incidents is in no way close to being Dr. Carver, white goatee or not.

            in my flickr account, I saw a comment there from two weeks ago that read:

            False flag event. Why would photos be taken inside the band hall (apparently where the 'shootings' occured) with one of the alleged victims on obama's lap.
            The level of conspiracyt craziness around this president literally makes me sick.
