6 trillion in debt and no budget.

Time for golf with Tiger. No time for a budget.

He is in no position to lecture anybody about anything.

What’s this? He’s stocked-up on Hollow-points to fight an armed public, but only now does not want them to be armed?

WTF is wrong with this guy? He reminds me of the little kid in school who gets his BIGGER friend to beat up another kid. If I saw another world leader giving a speech flanked by a bunch of teachers, the word ‘weak’ would immediately come to mind.

He assumes as do many that congress can do what they want once they get to DC regardless of what the people say about an issue.

It may get messy.

They shoudl be shaming hte left and makign hte claim that ‘the left doesn’t think you have a right to defend yourself, and this large group of peopel woudl liek you to know that if it hadn’t been for guns, they woudl not be alive today- the left wants to take that basic God given right to protect yourself awy fro myou’

Good point- We se just how effective the left’s mantra of ‘only police need guns- wait for them to arrive isntead of takign matters into your own hands- they will protect you’ worked in that case huh? NOONE SHOWED UP! 4 Americans died- and our govenrment wants us to give up our right to protect ourselves and rely on them for help? I don’t think so!

Typical technique of a third country dictator. Wonder what he will offer to buy more votes. Chicago a third world country’s city - no different than a chicago community agitator.

Why don’t pro 2nd amendment congressional Republicans give a similar press conference surrounded by people who have defended themselves and their families from predetors by having guns and being able to use them. Two can play this game.

Notice how the Sandy Hook supposed details appear all at once today?

You can bet those details have been manipulated for desired anti 2nd amendment purposes.

See how that works, Obozo is out flapping his lips to take away more liberty as he flanks himself with “moms”.

Shame is appropriate when you do something wrong, not when you do something right. Not passing guntrol is THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

In the long run, NOT passing gun control will save many, many lives, as well as our way of life.

It’s a shame Obama keeps taking vacations.

It’s a shame Obama keeps raising our national debt.

It’s a shame Obama doesn’t secure the borders.

It’s a shame America has Obama for a president.

To the question Sarah Palin posed in 2008,
What does a community organizer do?

Just what Obamais doing now and has done for the last 5+ years. Threaten, ridicule, obfuscate, deflect, etc, etc.

But they don't lead.

The House should just pass a bill making any crime involving a gun a federal crime with a minimum 20 year sentence. The Dems will never go for that because it would lock up a whole lot of their voter base. Then we would have a great illustration about who is “serious” about gun crime and who isn’t.

The second picture gives the impression that he’s recently enjoyed Reggie’s second amendment right.

The President says this is a moral issue, and he’s absolutely right.

My ability, my RIGHT, to defend myself, my family and our freedom IS a moral issue.

He might be mad at Reid. He obviously doesn’t care about the dead kids the way he uses them as a political football. Overall I think he is happy he has the issue as a distraction and club for 2014.
