Obamas to attend Fort Hood memorial

(CNN) - President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will attend Wednesday's memorial service for the victims of last week's shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, a top White House official announced.

Obama vowed after the shootings that "We're going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened" at Fort Hood, where three soldiers were killed and 16 wounded Wednesday afternoon by a soldier who then took his own life. Investigators have identified the killer as Spc. Ivan Lopez, a 34-year-old Iraq war veteran with a history of depression and anxiety.

    Ban all the guns, boy, it is ridiculous, silly, stupid. This second amendment is bs, man made, we can cut it altogether.

    Rubio, ugh, voted nay on every bill in the senate this week. While a rooster can be trained to keep pecking at the same spot to get his kernels of corn, Floridians might be better to elect a chicken instead of a tea bagger who does not represent us.

    This is a caring and compassionate president. Of course, the right wing haters will call it a photo op, or vacation. They are so clever and original!
