Obama arrives in Newtown, White House hypes speech authorship

President Obama will speak in Newtown, Conn. at 7pm Eastern.

Apparently, it’s very important for you to know that he was the primary author of his own speech.

    I don’t get it!! 18 kids are dead, and you find time to made snide remarks at the president?/ What’s missing here?

  • Wag_a_muffin

    “Uuuuh,” Obama was the primary writer of this speech, too.

  • Ricci Logan

    but im sure he consulted with valerie and the teleprompter as well

  • Jack Deth

    Who the hell cares that Obama “wrote” his own speech!

    What does he want? A Gold Star or similar Emoticon for his supposed “Feelings”?!!!
    One can almost smell the blow back and backfire in the air this “trip” will create.

    Definitely one time when he should have stayed in DC and scheduled this for a much later date!

      Get a life people and stop always trying to find a way to criticize our President he did a great thing going down to Newton and speaking on behalf of our country that is his title dumb f’s …USA Voice and A FACE and I actually think is a quite refreshing look considering what I have had to look at since 1972…God bless all of the people of Newton as well as our world…

        Still a free country will bash him all we want!! Don’t like it? Don’t care!! Lol

        Looks like we have a brand new troll with ONE comment to her name!

        I don’t remember the people of Newtown, Connecticut inviting Obama and his media entourage to upset their lives and their time of grief so the narcissist, sociopath with delusions of grandeur could create a tasteless photo-op.

        Though I do remember all kinds of liberal New Yorkers, politicians and talking heads screaming for consolation for several days to President Bush before his brief Bullhorn Speech after September 11, 2001.

        PS: If you are so upset. You are cordially invited to leave here at any time.

        I thought looks, like skin color, didn’t matter. You racist!!!

  • Steve_J

    He is probably as responsible for this speech as he was for the Nobel Peace Prize.

  • Joe W.

    What the hell does he think this is?? The Gettysburg Address?? Lincoln, he ain’t.

  • LightSabre

    Does anyone really believe anything the White House issues? Everything ever issued since Obama has been Pres. has all been for re-election/effect.

    Way back when, when a politician gave a speech, they were the assumed writer of it.

    Nowadays, when a politician gives a speech, it’s assumed that they didn’t write it.

    I`ll bet the Presidential seal is on the podium.

    • syvyn11

      It is. Give that man a cigar.

      Remember, at times like this, it’s all about THE O. Not the victims, not the families, not the survivors. It’s all about Obama.

    • TexSizzle

      No. It’s on the lectern. He’s on the podium.

  • Peyton

    Well if he says anything ridiculous. It’s his fault.

  • stuckinIL4now

    Why is he even there? A presidential visit is the last thing this town needs right now. He just has absolutely no business being there. If this happened in a red state like Texas, I wonder if he’d dare go.

  • Andrew Young

    Does he think the memorial is about him? How many times will there be “Uhmm or I” in the speech?

  • scubaski00

    What’s the matter was bill ayers busy and unable to write it for him??? Lol!!

    My heart goes out to the victims and survivors but I cannot for one iota watch Barry talk whether he wrote the speech or not!

    Hey Barry there’s no need to impress us with your eloquence. You won now get to work!!

    • Joseph Phillips

      Exactly. I couldn’t watch it either. I just hope this didn’t cut into his vacation time.

  • my preciousss!!

    good gawd, not a chicago ebonics speech?

  • nc

    Who’s going to tell BHO that the Newton prayers were not addressed to him?

    Bless his heart.

  • Joseph Phillips

    It’s news that he allegedly wrote his own speech? I thought Barry was so smart, so wise, so above-the-fray that he authored everything he utters. It’s news that some people think that’s news.

  • ClarkFL

    I guess it takes a speechwriter to help him appear to have a heart. Would any of you need a speechwriter to sound human? All I would need is their names.

    Every time I see the deep, heartfelt response to these sorts
    of tragedies I’m hopeful that the heart of this nation has not grown completely
    cold and dark. Yet I’m always left
    unable to reconcile that on the day we as a nation mourn the 20 precious children
    that were murdered at school, we turn a blind eye to the 3,651 that were
    murdered by their own parents that same day.
    Abortion in our country kills 3,651 children a day in our country
    through means more violent and horrific than we can even bear to know. I wonder what the 3,651 children had to say
    to Jesus that same day, and what their hearts must have felt to discover that
    their parents committed the act. I pray
    that our nation begin to truly love its children, not only in words only, but
    truly in deeds. If our president wants
    to protect our children he should start with the 3,651.
