President Obama is suggesting that House Republicans on the issue of gun control appear neither willing to work with him nor listen to the American public on the issue.
The House Republican majority is made up mostly of members who are in sharply gerrymandered districts that are very safely Republican and may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they're really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican constituencies, the president said in an interview with The New Republic.
Obama also said he can get 50 percent of public support for many of his upcoming initiatives, but I can't get enough votes out of the House of Representatives to actually get something passed.
I think there is still shock on the part of some in the party that I won re-election.

This one is! :)
So the Tyrant understands that the AMERICAN people don’t want the 2nd Amendment trampled on - and the House Republicans are doing what they were voted into office for...
Never compromise with tyrants.
Uh - he doesn’t get it. It’s not about the Republicans. It is the “American” people who do not want their constitutional rights trampled on. I can’t take much more of this POS.
No more gun laws.
And they are listening to the American public!
Well, he’s half right.
No flies on this guy.
Oh, wait ...
Republicans had BETTER be unwilling to compromise!
Are we the same American public he’s referring to that he didn’t listen to when we said “NO” to Obamacare?
How about he compromise. Contrary to what he believes, he’s not king or emperor
“unwilling to compromise”
Zero is finally on point with an issue. You’re dam right we aren’t, you PO(tU)S!
Yeah, and you were just the model of “compromise” your first two years when you tried to shove every piece of legislation down our throats without a single Republican vote, weren’t you?...
Maybe it has something to do with the Constitution?
Crap. That’s how he started with the debt ceiling and the fiscal cliff. Should we start a count-down until Boehner capitulates?
Too old. Was written by a bunch of slave-owning white guys in powdered wigs.
This is the way our government works. I expect that this was skipped in civics classes in Kenya and Indonesia, so our foreign president does not understand the concept. Send him home!
