School shooting: The Chief tells it like it is!

Well finally we have a Commander-in-Chief, as well as a Chief Executive in the White House! In the midst of all the insanity, sorrow, and the mourning that begins tomorrow for those who lost their children in California, there is FINALLY a voice of reason resounding out of the White House across the American plain.

G.W. Bush responded to the news of the school shooting today with a powerful yet compassionate statement. To me, the best sentence in the speech went something like this:

"When parents start teaching their kids right from wrong, these shootings will stop."

BRAVO MR. PRESIDENT!

His short speech centered around personal responsibility and family values as the two factors that will end this epidemic. It is about time! Now the anxious wait for the democrat demagoguery has begun! I believe Bush has the intestinal fortitude to jack slap them with the truth! Let's all hope so! I will also be looking forward to the new Attorney General's response.

Amen to what President Bush said.

As to the evil-doers... shoot 'em all and let God sort them out! Enough is enough.

Re: School shooting: The Chief tells it like it is!

He also said it was a "disgraceful act of cowardice." It's great to have someone in office that talks straight. It reminds me of Reagan. The thing that stinks about these whacks shooting their classmates is that the government might over react and take away everyone’s guns. I think this happened in Australia.

Re: School shooting: The Chief tells it like it is!

No kidding Shootist! I am more and more proud I voted for him every day. It took quite a while to find someone who actually covered even a small part of his speech! I wonder why? I finally found his actual wording in print:

"When America teaches our children right from wrong and teaches values that respect life in our country, we'll be better off."

I was watching from across the room in the coffee shop on campus just before coming home this afternoon - so there was a lot of interference in there. But if I remember correctly, he stated something similar to this twice in the interview. I think the one above was in response to a question that went something like: "What can you do as president to stop the violence?"

Not a single mention about gun legislation and control, not a word about how we need more laws and social programs, not a word about how we need to increase funding to education. Not even a "My administration is taking steps to . . ." Just a simple declaration of it being "act of cowardice" and a workable solution everyone can take part in!

Bravo!!!
It's about time to put the blame were it is due.
I've got to check the news and see this.

We finally have the right man for the job in Washington! Imagine--we were just a few dimpled chads away from more gun laws.

Respecting others has something to do with it also. There's not enought of it going around. Seems to be getting worse, here lately.
