Were those real tears, or Hollywood tears?

    I received a post from a cyber friend, and he told me that a group of fellow employees at work were having a heated debate over Obama weeping during the presser on his Executive Order to upgrade gun control rules. The difference of opinion is that some say Obama got more than donations while on fund raisers in Hollywood. The ugly talk is that his tears were a well acted out show.

    I would like to think he was genuine, in fact his emotion gave me a different view of the man. I don't agree with his leadership style, but he demonstrated real compassion that I didn't think was possible coming from him.

    So what say you! Was it all for real, or for the cameras?

    Many can summon tears on command and make it appear believable.

    Some advice: Avoid Lifetime movies.

    Crisis actors are good at crying on demand.

    If his tears were real he was crying because he couldn't just snap his fingers and have all our guns confiscated. Not because he has any empathy for the victims whose blood he always dances in to move the anti gun agenda moving forward.

    How about a tear or two for the millions of aborted lives?

    He must have rubbed essence of onion on that finger, which turned his eyes to watering tears!

    Now that was hitting the nail on the head. That was a walk off homer in the bottom of the 16th inning! Way to go!

    A little Vick's Vapo-Rub under the eyes produces the desired effect.
