Biden turns 'Nixonian' on gun control

'If I understand this correctly, if you're on the White House side you are legitimate'

A Grammy-winning singer-songwriter who has been frustrated in his effort to buy time on Washington-area radio stations to air his pro-Second Amendment message says Vice President Joe Biden is getting free help from media to promote the president’s gun-restriction campaign.

Barack Obama has been using the Newtown, Conn., massacre to campaign for a ban on certain types of guns and weapons accessories. He also wants to establish a national registry for guns and gun owners.

“Steve Vaus, creator of the Buck Howdy character, was watching the president’s efforts to build momentum for gun restrictions when a song came to him.

The tune about the attempted confiscation of a gun during the Texas Revolution is called “Come and Take It.”

But Vaus has been repeatedly turned down in his attempt to purchase airtime for the song, which was condensed from a longer version.

Vaus today told WND he sees irony in Biden’s statements at a press conference on “gun safety” in Philadelphia.

“To be very blunt with you, we’re counting on all of you, the legitimate news media, to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed,” Biden said, according to the Washington Examiner.

He said there are those who would “misrepresent” the White House’s “plans for gun control.”

“The social media that exists out there, the tragedies that have occurred, the Supreme Court decision affirming that it’s an individual right to bear arms – all give a lie to the argument that what we’re trying to do is somehow unconstitutional, or somehow goes after the legitimate right to own and bear arms and to hunt and protect yourselves,” Biden said.

Biden isn’t smart enough to be Nixonian. He’s not even Agnewian.

Biden CAN walk and chew gum...provided he takes one step, stops, chews, takes another step, stops, chews,takes another step and so on. Of course if anything distracts him so that he loses the sequence he will bite his lip. There can never be a movie that features Biden unless he plays himself. No modern actor is good enough to play that stupid, not even Robert Duvall. Some believe that Biden is even dumber than Pelosi, though not quite as crazy.
