The "Memorial"

Anyone have a problem with the way things went with at this thing? A little uncomfortable was it? Creepy? A little too much like a political rally? Cheering at a memorial for the families and victims of this horrible crime? That's just not right.

I thought Obama gave a good speech, but yes, I was a little taken aback at the "pep rally" tone of this memorial service.

I'm not sure where this comes from. I don't think Obama wanted it to happen that way. It's just disrespectful and shows no class. I don't think it's a coincidence that it was being done by the same people that tried to make political hay out of the murders, our friends on the left. This was no "Irish wake". It was a memorial for the victims attended by the President of the United States.

Okay, I did not see they were handing out t-shirts, until recently, that made me roll my eyes.

I am sure if a Republican president would have given a talk you would have thought it was awesome. It was fine...

The victims families were the ones cheering so who are we to say it is/was wrong. And I
