Shameless Exploitation: Obama Asks Newtown Mother to Deliver Weekly Address

Posted by on Apr 12, 2013 at 12:57 pm

This is really getting creepy. The world has sympathy for the parents of the children killed at Newtown. But enough is enough. When you become Democrat operatives that sympathy can dry up pretty quickly.

President Obama has asked the mother of a six-year-old killed in last December’s massacre in Newtown, Conn., to stand in for him in addressing the nation this weekend.

Francine Wheeler, whose son, Ben, was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School, will deliver the president’s weekly address that is aired on television and radio, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters on Friday.

“Nobody has a more important and powerful perspective on the issue than the families who have lost loved ones,” Carney said. Of the president, Carney added, “He believes their voices and resolve have been critical with the progress we’ve seen in the Senate.”

The GOP should reply with Ashley Baldwin.

    What bothers me so much about this is that these parents don’t seem to understand that they’re being exploited, even if they feel that gun control is the answer. Even in their grief, they have no shame or conscience.
