Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) on Monday said President Barack Obama was "really magnificent" in his efforts to comfort the community of Newtown, Conn. in the wake of last week's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary.
"I thought the president was really magnificent. First, he spent a lot of time with the families that have lost loved ones and with the first responders and that was very important to them," Lieberman said on MSNBC. "He was just very comforting and very strengthening and he was himself very moved. Secondly, I thought his speech was powerful both in evoking our tradition of faith in times of crisis in America and comforting, but really most significant out of all, he had a real resolve last night that was deeply appreciated in that high school auditorium, which is that these tragedies must end."
