The fact that he wasn't from Sandy Hook doesn't negate his testimony.  The fact that is was trite and stupid does.

Three Crooked Squirrels: The fact that he wasn't a Sandy Hook father doesn't negate what he said.  I have always thought that it was a bad idea to make policy based on the emotions of a victim of a crime.  Policy should come from reasoned thought and debate.  Just like I don't want the families of murder victims to control death penalty policy, neither do I want the families of Sandy Hook victims to dictate gun control policy, either for more gun control or less.

That said, the fact that his daughter was one mile away and was clearly personally affected, while not negating what he said, should be taken for what it is: emotion.  We should listen to these people for sure, but need to take it with a grain of salt.

And people in hell want ice water.

Personally, I don't blame this guy. I blame the "liberal media" for getting it wrong and/or exaggerating the connection to push their own agenda. TFA lists a few of these "liberal media" outlets in the second paragraph.

When did You Tube become the "media"? And when did incessantly posting a link to Facebook become the "media"?  The way I saw this was someone took the video from the hearings, posted it with their own slant, it went viral and bunch of "news" organization reported it.

Oh wait, I guess that is the media today.

Because telling the truth and playing by the rules is a surefire way for them to get their asses handed to them on a silver platter.

ALC59: Old story, the media said his kid went there he didn't, you people only read what you want
Obamas kids don't go there and yet he uses Sandy Hook for his own personal/political agenda, but no one else is allowed
Where did he find the black kid, all the pictures i've seen of sandy hook were of only white kids
just like the super bowl, had to throw Keys in the mix just for some color

I kinda feel sorry for Obama. Here he is trying to make the country a better place, and he has to contend with 30 years of deliberate republican herpaderp that has turned an entire generation into a mob of yowling, ugly, near-violent fatasses who worship stupidity and loathe science itself. Even the people of the 70's would facepalm at us in their polyester leisure suits and bell-bottom jeans.

plewis: The court of public opinion is much more important here than the truth, so in that case, this guy won one.  But he should be ashamed of himself.  HE DOES NOT KNOW REALLY WHAT HE WOULD FEEL IF HIS KID WERE INDISCRIMINATELY MOWED DOWN BY A WEAPON OF WAR.  He does not REALLY know how he would then feel about guns.  He's just a Douchebag who's kid was in no danger at all.  BUT to the derp heads, he's a tragic hero and that will not change in the light of the truth.  The public's attention has moved on and this guy served his purpose - not as a father, but as a tool for gun makers.

/why are we all so stupid?


You mean, ass opposed to people who directly experienced the loss of a child at Sandy Hook, like Barack Obama and Andrew Cuomo?

ParadisePornoTheater: Haven't really paid attention to this 'til now.  Are we sure he didn't fabricate his precious "Victoria", too?


Not only is he likely childless, but I'm pretty sure "he" isn't even a man.  Probably just some hysterical woman with prosthetic facial hair.  In fact, was anyone actually present during "his" testimony, or is it more likely that the whole thing is CGI, created in the mysterious underground lair of the NRA?

Going even further down the rabbit hole, how can we be sure that this a false-flag op planned by the Obama administration, in order to discredit the gun nuts?

Circusdog320: monoski: FlashHarry: why is it "conservatives" feel they constantly have to lie and cheat to win?

Libs just do phony charities and steal the money for themselves

So everybody does it...that's your rebuttal. Obviously you're ok with the lie and cheat part...got it!


How about this...

You are harder on Conservatives than Liberals, not just because they claim the mantle of righteousness and wear it a little too proudly, but because it is EARNED.

This whole line got started because someone made a false generalization about Conservatives as all being liars.  The vast majority of social and political Conservatives are not hypocrites.  However, when you catch one being a hypocrite, in the Liberal's mind, that's grounds for condemning them all.  Bullshiat.  It's something you do to make yourselves feel better about liking the smell of cooking red meat, finding almost childlike joy in shooting a firearm, or secretly wanting to rev up a really fast, gas guzzling sports car and blast down the freeway like a rocket.  It is Liberals who are by in large, hypocrites, not Conservatives.  It is Liberals who need to get the stick out of their ass, not Conservatives.

Riche: FlashHarry: why is it "conservatives" feel they constantly have to lie and cheat to win?

Because reality has a well-known liberal bias.

I think I may start referring to that fact as "Colbert's law."


===================

And I really do wish all the freaking sociopaths in power who keep trying to fark over the nation would quit calling themselves "conservatives."

Wanting to destroy public education and Social Security/Medicare while constantly seeking new ways to deny some people the chance to vote-- at least when they're not busy undermining any and all health and safety regulations is anything but "Conservative."  It's actually very "radical" if not borderline "Anarchist" in some ways.


Reality... Liberal bias
Colbert and/or Jon Stewart reference
Conservatives=sociopaths

So close, but you coulda fit a Somalia reference in there somewhere. But I'll still give you a thinkprogress/10

Not if there are 15 guys trying to rape her.
