Hillary Was Right: Obama’s Inexperience Sank Gun Deal
The Daily Beast ^ | April 19, 2013 | Stuart Stevens

Posted on 04/20/2013 5:24:47 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

She told us so? The debacle on background checks fully exposed the president’s flawed leadership, which his Democratic rival warned voters about back in 2008.

If you ever need a refresher course in just how disconnected Barack Obama is from America’s mainstream culture of guns, consider this scathing indictment:

“You know, Americans who believe in the Second Amendment believe it’s a matter of constitutional right ... I disagree with Senator Obama’s assertion that people in this country ‘cling to guns’ ... People of all walks of life hunt—and they enjoy doing so because it’s an important part of their life, not because they are bitter.”

Is that Wayne LaPierre unloading on the president? Nope. It’s Hillary Clinton back in 2008 after then-senator Barack Obama’s famous reference to small-town Americans “clinging to guns and religion.” And just in case anyone missed her larger point about Obama, she went on to call the remarks “elitist and divisive.”

Hillary wasn’t my candidate, but after the president’s multiple failures to pass gun legislation capped by his Rose Garden performance, all of Hillary World can be forgiven for exhaling a loud, cathartic “I told you so.”(continued)

He says that like it's a bad thing. And it's NOT ABOUT HUNTING, you leftist morons.

If Hillary wins the White House in 2016 I'm heading overseas somehow.

Hillary certainly looks like the winner right now.

But remember, back in Jan 2008, who would have bet money that a guy named Baraq Hussein would be inaugurated POTUS just a year later.

It was not his lack of experience, it was our abundance of experience. We beat him because we fought harder, smarter, and better. In short, we kicked a55. I wouldn’t go underestimating Obama at this point. That’s my 2 cents anyways.

People also don't remember that she lost to Obama because she didn't run an effective campaign, because she is not a good manager or leader. She is a celebrity, nothing more. When you really think about her, she has shown no evidence of being able to effective lead groups of people to accomplish anything.

What sank the “gun deal” was the America people and their support of the US Constitution..

I agree with your assessment of Hillary as a sub-par hack. Perhaps the most over-rated figure in modern political life.

However I also believe (based on comments of wise FReepers) that she was blackmailed over Arkancide by the Chicago political mob. And was thus prevented from using the vaunted Clinton private investigation team (Palladino & Sutherland) to dig up the scoop on Baraq.

Obama knows nothing about getting anything passed. His leadership skills are confined to inciting a mob.

I don’t think so, but what do I know.

I see Hillary taking out Biden and Cuomo early, and coasting to the nomination.

Then again I predicted the Tea Party would run a candidate against Romney in 40 states, but he was so lame he lost to Baraq in a straight up 2-way race...

I am surprised more people don’t see the obvious.... the MSM cheering of Hillary Clinton will only increase leading up to 2016 until they all but promise us that she is the progressive anti-Obama that “understands us.”

This has little to do with the gun issue and everything to do with rehabilitating the progressives best chance to win in 2016 - an election that will be challenging based on history. Many democrat strategists also predict major problems and a backlash over Obamacare in 2016.

Just my .02, but get used to the media loving on Hillary in just about every semi-critical article of Obama. Hillary is about to have a made for television make-over of epic proportions.

More crap -- she equated the 2nd Amendment with hunting. She's just another gun-grabbing limo lib demagogue.

Shut up, Hillary, you psychotic bag lady.

The constitution is what stopped it.

The right to bear arms is the right of American citizens.

We do not need tyrants like you and your ex boss at all.

You and your ilk are parasites.

To where? Head for a free state like Texas or Arizona, but you won't find a more gun-friendly country overseas.

Hillary Clinton would of rendered the same result. A small group of Dem Senators with reelection in a "gun State" will not have been swayed. In the end, the Democrat apparatus would have no problem with that vote anyway.

Its Hillary speaking, she goes with the wind, but she also changes it’s direction afterwards. I can’t trust anything I hear from the Clintons. Unless she has a complete cure for the economy, nothing will change. She is no Thatcher.

Hillary has F&&ked up everything she has touched her entire life.

At least in 2008 the US bet on a complete unknown. Hillary is a known quantity....all bad.....

I do believe that Hillary would have made a better president in 2008 than Obama has proven himself to be. That’s not saying much really, but, I think she would have pulled the nation out of debt better and not divided people along lines of race —like Obuma. I don’t think she will run in 2016—her day is done.

Say, 2nddivisionvet, you said you’d teach us fundraising noobs how to do what you’re suggesting if Sarah entered this last cycle. I don’t post here often but I gots a good memory, esp. when it comes to Sarah. I don’t know I could do $2 million, but I’d love to know how to raise even $200,000

Oh, how right you are about Hillary’s lack of leadership and management skills. Everything she’s ever touched has turned to sh!t, yet somehow there’s a myth out there that she has all this wonderful experience and success - including her recent SecState gig.

Good to know. Let’s not let them get away with it. Obamacare is Hilarycare is Clintoncare is Democratcare. It’s all one long continuum of bad ideas that never work as intended. The Clintons are liars, grifters and worse.

The name Clinton should be the butt of every joke for a generation.
