Skip to comments.Bob Schieffer Likens Obama 'Taking on the Gun Lobby' to Hunt for Bin Laden
Posted on 01/16/2013 11:40:16 AM PST by chessplayer
Bob Schieffer somehow topped Chris Matthews during CBS News's special coverage of President Obama's gun control press conference on Wednesday, as he became the worst caricature of a foaming-at-the-mouth cheerleader for the chief executive. Schieffer lauded "one of the best speeches I've ever heard him [Obama] deliver", and compared Obama's new gun control agenda to Lyndon Johnson's push for civil rights legislation in the 1960s.
The CBS veteran even went so far to liken the President's cause to the ten-year hunt for 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden and the difficult endeavor of winning World War II [audio available here; video below the jump]:
CBS’s Bob Schieffer Likens Obama Taking on NRA to ‘Defeating the Nazis’... http://drudge.tw/13E67vK
Where's Mullah Omar?
Schieffer, just shut the bleep UP, you dried up old skeleton!
Quite a few rich queers coming out of the closet to get hysterical against our Constitution.
Little Bobby is still one of those who is convinced that Obama killed Osama huh? LOL! What a fool.
I’ll be Schieffer has tingly legs too.
Wow. I’m finally convinced. Bob Schieffer is a good, well-meaning, broad-minded man. He is NOT a racist like the average American! Here’s to you, Bob, you horse’s ass!
I liken Bob Schieffer to a mud fence.
Therefore, as much as my soul laments against the harsh truth before me, I make this declaration to my enemies who press me into this battle, that none shall be able to afterwards say I did not know, you did not warn me;
I do not care WHY you took that job with the government, or WHY you continue to hold it. I only know that YOU have become Judas and sold yourself to an oppressive state - your government office buildings and vehicles are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.
I do not care WHY, as a journalist, you choose to spin and corrupt the news, rather than report the plain truth and let the people judge for themselves. I only know that YOU have violated the public trust in the most vile and seditious manner, and thus your homes, offices, studios, vehicles, and any other place you may find yourself are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.
I do not care WHY you signed that union card. I only know that YOU pay dues to a communist organization which conducts treasonous works against my Republic daily and so your union hall and your work-sites are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.
I do not care that YOU only voted for the TRAITOR because you are elderly/disabled or otherwise dependent upon government largess. Are YOU so ignorant and/or disinterested that you could not see through their propaganda, to the fact that your sustenance was assured either way? What have YOU gained now that the public housing areas you live in, and the public facilities you depend on are part of the battlefield? Though I am a soldier, I can afford you LITTLE protection, for YOU have placed yourselves on the battlefield.
I know that all of these places and all of these people are PART of the battlefield ,not just because I am a soldier, and have experienced a few battlefields in my day; but also because our President DECLARES that even our own homes are on the battlefield, whether we wish them to be or not, and I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO BELIEVE HIM; its not just that the NDAA passed a battlefield is not defined by law; its the profound build-up of martial power and resources across my once-great nation which tells me a battle is being prepared here. Over two billion rounds of ammunition procured by DHS and its sub-agencies in the past 18 months, plus machine guns in the tens of thousands, armored vehicles, combat aircraft, drones, and other implements of war being staged throughout our nation, our home how do YOU explain that EXCEPT as the preparation for battle?
I WILL FIGHT not because I desire it, but because I CANNOT JUSTIFY ANY OTHER COURSE OF ACTION when the enemy attacks, you MUST fight you MUST kill or you will die.
I smell YOU, my enemy; I can feel the ambush YOU have laid for me and my true countrymen, all about like a sticky spiders web, yet WE will not back down, and though YOU will kill some of us, you will not get us ALL before we have FINISHED with you.
I stand here, ready, on the eve of battle, and I ask God WHY I have been brought to the threshold of this battlefield, about to be thrust in, when I thought my soldiering days were through; and I am reminded that there is by His decree, a Time to Kill, as well as a Time to Die who am I to question WHY ?
Saddle up, boys, its time to ride out and meet them.
For those who are willing, simply comment with the words I will stand, that the enemies of Liberty may know what they face, and perhaps relent - it is our duty first to serve peace, even if to do so we must make war.
The phrase ‘gun lobby’ apparently provides them with some sort of false comfort.
What they seem afraid to admit is that the ‘gun lobby’ is hundreds of millions of pesky citizens.
Shouldn’t he have used
Wiley Coyote in his pursuit of the Road Runner?
More in the childish, cartoon mind of these idiots.
Schieffer is still alive?
Didn’t he once interview Andrew Jackson?
The Kenyan can do no wrong!
Bob, please keep going there. You replaced Rather, but your replacemnet won’t be too far behind.
Attacking the NRA is not going after Criminals or even Gun manfacturers.
We are your neighbors, your doctors, lawyers, plumbers, teachers...
I am the NRA
Wipe your chin, Bob. It’s unseemly.
He’s an insult to Texas and everyday Americans, just like Dan Rather.
Totally out of touch.
And there goes another elitist asshole who lives in a gated community and travels with armed security guards while denying the right of self-defense to the smelly masses he disdains even while depending upon their viewership for his inflated income.
Angry "old media"(fake, but accurate)dinosaur going senile?
(we report, you decide)
Really Bob? One of the best speeches Evuh ??
Well I found this whole event laughable for the paucity and vacuousness of it all
I’m laughing at your demigod and I’d like that 15 minutes of my life back.
If it was so good you woulda thought he’d take questions at the end.
Nope! All that could be heard was a gianttthud at the end
And they let this guy moderate not one but 2 debates during the primary and the general election in 2012, and I remember the same liberal hack back in 2008 pooh poohingh Obama while slamming Republicans.
Well, somebody had to take Andy Rooney’s place............
***compared Obama’s new gun control agenda to Lyndon Johnson’s push for civil rights legislation in the 1960s. ***
Johnson’s gun control law...
“Today we begin to disarm the criminal and the careless and the insane. All of our people who are deeply concerned in this country about law and order should hail this day.
- Lyndon Johnson when he signed the 1968 GCA into law.
Well, the communists *did* beat the Nazis in all fairness. Perhaps he meant to compare what Obama did to the communists winning the Cold War.
Oh good God......Someone tell this IDIOT to get OVER himself. What a drooling ass-licker.
