Bob Schieffer Likens Obama 'Taking on the Gun Lobby' to Hunt for Bin Laden
NewsBusters ^

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]:

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

***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.

Booby wasn't too far off with his Nazi comparison. He should have compared it to Hitler disarming the German people before he started exterminating the Jews and anyone else he wanted to kill. Barack hussein Obama mmm mmm mmm, barack hussein Obama mmm mmm mmm. Sounds like a gay version of a Hitler youth song.
