For much of the Monday, the president sought to balance the roles of comforter and commander in chief as he shuttled between work on foreign affairs and comments on the shootings.
White House officials said Obama and his staff were going about administration business even as the shooting cast a pall around the building, leaving officials speaking in hushed tones and the president disclosing that his own reflections were those of a president “and also a father.”
So will our far left president be able to control his tongue and put the victims ahead of his political agenda?
Hey, maybe Obama will visit the border while he’s down there, huh?
