Unseemly haste …

The funerals are not finished.

Why did the President rush this country into a divisive debate about gun control before the victims of this tragedy were buried?

Why the unseemly haste?

Couldn’t he have given this country time to grieve before pushing us into another political fight? Would it be so hard to wait a few days?

Christmas is in four days.

Why didn’t he at least give us time to bury our dead and be together with our families at Christmas before forcing another battle on us?

    Why did the President rush this country into a divisive debate

    Why? Because it’s that’s what he does, because that’s who he is. Oh, and never let a good crisi go to waste.

      I was going to say exactly this, but you did first. Look at the man’s pattern over the last 4 years. Not likely to change.

    I have to say that I agree with Vox on this one. The only way he knows to lead is to divide and attempt to conquer. Most of us don’t want to deal with it right now, or ever really, in my mind its simply a cosmetic that does absolutely no good but, it is a chance for the government to get in our way again.

    I thought what President Obama said the day of the shooting was perfect. If he hadn’t done anything (like appoint Biden) until after the funerals and holidays, people would be critical that he waited.

    Because it just doesn’t stop.
    While the NRA was asserting this morning that more guns in schools is the only answer, this was happening:
    “Unseemly”? Try long overdue.

    Uh … so some good can come out of this tragedy? Or am I misunderstanding your question?

    We had Columbine, and nothing happened. We had that Batman movie thing, and nothing happened. If something good can come out of this, and we need to move while emotions are high, then let’s go for it.
