    Default Interesting In Arizona

    Obama, Holder, etc. had no time to come to Arizona when the governor was asking for their help with immigration and border issues. Obama couldn't spare time for a phone call much less visit the border as requested. (He did grant the governor 20 minutes when she came to Washington.) Now that the cameras are rolling and re-election campaign mode is starting, look who shows up with teleprompter on tow for some publicity. Pitiful...

    Seize the moment regards,

    That may be the most ridiculous partisan attack EVER on POTUS!

    Him going to Arizona was no different than Bush going to Ground Zero. That is what a president is supposed to do in time of tragedy on that scale. Give it a break.

    Oh, and he took a contingency of republican leaders with him, so were they just there to grab publicity also?

    I think this forum has more than sufficiently exhausted the topic of the Arizona tragedy and the overuse of political "buzz words". It's interesting that people here are very concerned about their breeding programs or the lines from which they get their dogs, that it would probably be a better use of your time to really look at your own "personal" breeding and the ideas and prejudices that you are unleashing on society. For the benefit of the country's future generations, I would sincerely hope that you have been neutered before any more damage is done.

    It's not a partisan attack. Merely pointing out the convenience of Obama and his cabinet making hay out of a painful situation. Where was he after Ft. Hood, the Gulf Coast and the Christmas bomber while he was vacationing in Hawaii. He's learning all be it slowly.

    A mass shooting by a paranoid schizophrenic, as tragic as it is, does not rise to the level of an attack on our country in multiple locations that resulted in 3,000 deaths at the time and many more in the wars since...

    I suppose you didn't notice Pelosi mugging for the camera's before the service as if she was at a campaign event?? Those politicians don't give a damn about the victims in AZ. They just want to get in front of the cameras and make us little people thinke they do.

    Isn't that special? Pretty good for your first POTUS post ever.

    I simply think it is pitiful for politicians - either side- to use tragic events to further their agenda with some quality camera time. Funny how thet never seemed to find the time before.

    I see it as a bi-partisan attempt to "lead" the nation out of the era of extremism that we have drifted into. Cudo's to Obama, and the Republican leaders at his side.
