Liberals Mock Bush's call for help in school shootings
The Sacramento Bee reported on the Conference on School Safety which was ordered and attended by the President in the wake of the three most recent school shootings in Colorado, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
Democrats, however, "mocked the event as a photo opportunity with little substance."
Excuse me? Would they say that to the face of Columbine survivor Craig Scott who was there and told the "wrenching story of the day his sister died. He was in the Colorado school in 1999 when two student gunmen went on a rampage, killing 13 people, including his sister Rachel. He told Bush that kindness and compassion can trump violence."?
Scott said, "Please take my words to heart today. They were bought at a high price."
Clearly the Dems failed to takes his words to heart! Instead, Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J. said, "It seems every week we learn of yet another school shooting, and all the president is willing to do is hold a summit."
The AP must have missed the substance as well, concluding the summit was motivated for political advantage:
"Four weeks before Election Day, the event gave Bush a chance to emphasize education, the issue at the center of his domestic agenda. The summit comes as Republicans in Congress have been eager to change the subject from a sex scandal involving former House pages."
Liberals...aren't they the 'bleeding hearts' ones? The "I feel your pain" crowd?
