Good lord, man. What more can they do for this policy push that they arent doing already? Youve got major network news bureaus using the term assault magazines, for cripes sake. When youve had a horse pulling a cart for two months, its humane to pat him and tell him good job before hitching him up again.
Piers Morgan, Im sure, would appreciate some water and a sugar cube or two.
Vice President Joe Biden said Monday that those who claimed the Obama Administration was trying to take away guns from law-abiding citizens were spinning a bunch of malarkey.
I know thats a word youve never heard before, although its now in the dictionary, Biden said at a roundtable discussion with law enforcement officers in Philadelphia. Thats just simply not true. And to be very blunt with you, were counting on all of you, the legitimate news media, to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed.
Biden also pledged to bring the fight to rural areas, where instances of gun violence were less frequent than in cities and the tradition of gun ownership is strong. The vice president said he had read reports in a local newspaper that the administration had not done enough to reach out to rural voters.
Im coming, Im coming, Biden said.
Times really havent changed much, but the White House needs to maintain that fiction to have any hope of passing even the most modest new gun regulations through Congress...

Talking points issued, accompanied by a veiled threat.
Hey Joey! There is no “legitimate news media” anymore. You communists destroyed it. All of it.
At what point do they officially become the state run media?
I think we passed that point four years ago when they got tingles up their legs.
There goes Biden again.. Speaking highly of White House’ employees (mainstream media).
Maybe he hasn’t heard that Glenn Beck and Rush have been talking about Gun Control everyday, aren’t they the “legitimate Media”??
First, regulate and prohibit certain people from buying firearms.
Next, require background checks for purchases from FFL dealers.
Now expand the background check to be universal.
Then require registration of all firearms.
finally, confiscate firearms from all citizens.
Even if they don’t know anything (which is not an unlikely scenario) it’d still be fun. So it’s kind of a win-win proposition AFAIC.
Nah, Sound Bite Joe is more of a "ride em hard and put em away wet" kind of guy.
Right and I’ll wager they’d prefer it over their Idol’s Drone Strikes.
