Tucson Shooting– Unfortunate Repub Quote

This is a quote from the new Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, taken from the National Post: “Acts and threats of violence against our public officials have no place in our society.” Boehner said. “This is a sad day for our country.”

The sentiment might be on point, but the fact that he put in “against our public officials” is kind of sickening. Are public officials more of a person than a regular Joe the Plumber? Apparently everyday, run-of-the-mill acts of violents against anyone from  convenience store owners to protestors are okay. I guess this is the byproduct of a disturbed individual disagreeing with government policies and subsequently being granted easy access to Wal-Mart and perform target practice on — people. Ain’t that America…  give everyone guns and let God sort it out. Pretty pathetic philosophy for the greatest nation in the world.
