I am so happy for Gabrielle Giffords and her family that her recovery is going well, and that she can attend Friday’s shuttle launch!
That said, too bad Obama will be there too, because don’t think for a moment that Obama hasn’t already schemed out the political gain he can get by appearing there Friday. With her.
Just look at how Obama previously and consistently leveraged the Tucson tragedy for his own political (read: personal) gain. Let’s call the following VILE NEWS from the “Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste” front...
First, there was these despicable reactions to the shooting -- all orchestrated by the Democrat Media Complex:
“They need to deftly pin this [Tucson shooting] on the tea partiers. Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.” ~a Democrat operative speaking on how Obama must parlay Jared Loughner’s evil into something tangibly good for Obama!
“Democrats plotted to blame Tea Party for slaughter. Of course, Politico buried it in their story.” ~Jim Hoft
Next, (of course) was the evil Left’s obligatory spin:
“The Tuscon shooting is Obama’s Oklahoma City moment!”
“…the instantaneous reaction of the hard Left, President Obama’s base, was to politicize the Tucson atrocity as a natural, an inevitable, result of conservative ideology, enthusiasm for immigration-law enforcement and gun ownership by law-abiding Americans, and dissent from Obama’s policies...” ~Andrew McCarthy
Then, there was even more despicable news:
“Unbelievable: Democrat Group Using Gifford’s Shooting For Fundraiser!” ~Warner Todd Huston
And finally, there was what occurred at the memorial service, as reported by Judi McCleod:
University of Arizona brass did not originate the “Together We Thrive” T-shirt. They merely recycled it for Obama—and recycled it in time for what should have been a dignified Memorial for the dead. If you were a mourner who took home a “Together We Thrive” T-shirt have a look at the bottom of your shirt. “Rocking America and Rocking the Vote” is a common theme of the DNC, and it’s right there on your Memorial T-shirt memento. Welcome to the era of Obama, where cheering and standing ovations, for the first time in history, became part of the Requiem for the Dead.
Like I said, don’t think for a moment that Obama hasn’t already schemed out the political gain he can get by appearing there -- the “man” is truly disgusting.
