Photo: Obama pauses to remember Boston victims

(CNN) - In a White House photo, President Barack Obama observes a moment of silence for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. The moment took place exactly one week since the blasts, which killed three people and left scores injured.

    When is Obama going to release a picture of him remembering the 4 Americans that died at the hands of terrorists in Benghazi??? Never, because it didn't happen.

    When is Obama going to release pictures of his briefing on how the hunt for their killers is going??? Never, because it isn't happening.

    When is the LSM going to start doing their job and stop protecting Obama and Hillary Clinton??? Never, because they would never abandon their hand picked Messiah.

    I find it amazing that some people are so dedicated to bringing Mr. Obama down that they are conspiring to turn the FBI`s triumph in capturing/ killing these criminals into some sort of failure.

    How quiet could it have been with all the camera crew, lighting crew, and equipment there to record the moment?

    Who cares what this overheated under qualified. Socialist is doing. Resign Mr. Obama. You are destroying this. Country with failed polices you can't seem to. Stop. 17 trillion and counting in dept, more on food stamps , welfare, disability, than ever before, 7 to 8 percent. Unemployment, biggest tax hike in America's history over a program most of us don't want, shrinking middle class, fewer able to save, , on and on. The liberals are too blind to see but many are waking up. Hope and change. What a joke you are Mr go bow to another leader and apologize. Lame duck for dinner, anyone?

    A painful and somber moment for the president. Let's see how the Tea Baggers turn it into a negative.

    Everybody else didn't have a camera on them so touching yea right almost brought a tear to my eye.

    It's sad when you see a President of the United States with a camera on him every moment kind of makes you sick.

    I feel for the people who were killed and wounded in Boston but a camera nothing but politics as always with Obama the no leader in charge.

    I would have been more impressed if this had truly been a private moment without the WH photographer being there, but Obama never misses a photo op, does he?

    What contrived propaganda! Who took the pic, was you fawning press or his autobiographer that follows him around?

    My President has a golden heart, as young as he is, he has the quality of that of compassionate father.

    Time to reflect our actions and return to Gods way! Otherwise without his intervention it could have been catastrophic. I'm here to help not make your work harder than it is. Clean your government it's filthy and it stinks.

    If this was to be a silent moment – why invite the press ?

    Why invite the press? Because it simply makes people feel better. I am from Boston and I am still unnerved by the events of last week. And little things like this photo make me feel better.

    He was "chosen" ... Regardless of what you believe or what you say ... God will have his way.

    I am glad the President thinks it is important to pray for those who loose their lives to someone else. I wish he would now pray for the 3,000 that die everyday in America without any opportunity to defend themselves against the murder. When will America repent before God for our sins of killing the innocent. I pray it is before God hands down His wrath. Pray and ask God to show mercy on our country.
