President Calls Chardon Principal

Two days after a student walked into Chardon High School and started shooting at his fellow classmates, President Obama called CHS Principal Andy Fetchik on Wednesday afternoon to express his condolences. Three teenagers have died as a result of the incident and two others were injured. CNN's justice team has the latest details on the story.

Here’s a readout of the president’s call with Principal Fetchik from a White House official:

Earlier today, President Obama called Andy Fetchik, Principal of Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio, to express his condolences following the shooting that took place Monday morning.  The President told Principal Fetchik that he was heartbroken by the shooting and asked how the Principal and the school community were holding up during these difficult days.  The President told Principal Fetchik that he and the First Lady are keeping the entire Chardon High School community in their thoughts and prayers.

      In addition to being crooks, liars, and traitors, Obama and Holder should both be convicted as accomplices to MASS MURDER ... for the slaughter of over 200 innocent Mexicans, as a result of their reckless Fast and Furious policy ... in which they provided the murder weapons to the ruthless drug cartels

        Based on your criteria Bush/Cheney should be executed for the mass killings in Iraq.

    We have a President that uses common sense as well as the intelligence to run the country. I know this must be very puzzling and hard to understand for the republicans in senate and congress.
