Obama: Gun control filibuster 'not right'
POLITICO ^ | REID J. EPSTEIN

Posted on 04/08/2013 4:15:14 PM PDT by JohnPDuncan

President Obama will tell Senate Republicans it’s “not right” to filibuster his gun control agenda, according to excerpts of his the prepared remarks he will make Monday in Connecticut.

“Some back in Washington are already floating the idea that they might use political stunts to prevent votes on any of these reforms,” Obama will say, according to the remarks. “They’re not just saying they’ll vote ‘no’ on ideas that almost all Americans support. They’re saying they won’t allow any votes on them at all. They’re saying your opinion doesn’t matter. And that’s not right.”

Obama’s speech centering on the Capitol Hill machinations represents how much of the gun control debate has slipped away from him. He’s gone from making an impassioned case for a sweeping agenda to bemoaning Republicans’ ability to block even the smallest reform.

Obama's not happy. He doesn't have the votes to break the filibuster.

He's screaming and yelling. He's whipping up the crowd into a partisan frenzy demanding a vote on the 2nd Amendment. He's trying every trick in the book. He's even flying in relatives of the dead Newtown kids to exploit their grief.

Our answer? No. The 2nd Amendment is NOT up for a vote.

Sorry for Mr. President.

Stand with Rand and the 13 other senators (so far) who are on the record.

Contact your senators now!

I'm pumped. Keep fighting. We can WIN!!

I doubt if Obama has the votes to get to 60 to ‘end the debate’.

He hasn’t even got 60 votes to START the debate.

That’s why he’s yelling and screaming.

Keep up the pressure folks. He’s not happy!

CBS was on the tv at the gym tonight. They were “all gun control, all the time”. I have no respect for main stream media, but even I couldn’t believe how much time they spent on it and the bias that they showed. It almost appeared that they had orders from...somebody.

If Universal Background Checks were done at the time of the founding of this nation, the Founding Fathers would have been hung with that information.

That's a great point! Nobody had the cajones to stand up and try to fillibuster that law...I'm glad that some at last are standing up to this tin pot dictator.

Mr. Obama, people have a right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. No amount of infringement can break this right. You can try all you want, but, in the end, it will still be there.

Why do you use every oppurtunity to try to undo the Bill of Rights?

You are beginning to be perceived as one who wants to undo the Constitution. Is that what you want?

When are we going to ban cars - when is all this carnage going to end? Each year close to 40,000 people are killed by auto accidents. What is omuslim going to do about that? How can we stand by and let this happen?

You can forget about that. In 2012 the Democrats finally perfected their stealing of elections. 2014 and if obama allows an election in 2016, the results will be a repeat of 2012.

Flying 8 Sandy Hookers back to Washington to lobby Congress to infringe upon our Second Amendment rights is “NOT RIGHT” either, Barry.

Zero is only doing what he promised in his two last campaigns - TRANSFORMING AMERICA. And he had absolutely no plans of doing that the way the founders set out in the Constitution.

agreed. It is almost as if the media, FB troublemakers, Reddit homosexuals, and all other media forms get a fax from Moonbat Central detailing that days talking points, who to to attack, and who or what to sympathize with..

Um Obama?

How about you stop worrying about armed Americans, and start worrying about armed Koreans for a change?

And Armed Iranians. Armed Cubans. Armed Venezuelans. For that matter, armed Chinese, and even armed Russians.

For crying out loud.

Stop it. Now.

Yeah, back about 2003 when it came to Bush’s judicial nominations it was “extended debate” and preventing all these Democratic ‘Mr. Smiths’ from blowing-off would be using a nuclear bomb, but now that it involves the Bill of Rights, it’s just a “political stunt.”

The Dems and their MSM: chickaboom, don’t you just love ‘em?
