WASHINGTON --A visibly infuriated President Barack Obama surrounded himself with tear-stained parents of Connecticut school shooting victims Wednesday after the Senate voted down a measure designed to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and declared it a "pretty shameful day for Washington."
He said a minority of senators decided "it wasn't worth it" to protect the nation's children.
The Senate, which is controlled by the president's own party, handed him a stinging first defeat for his second term by voting down a bipartisan compromise to expand background checks for gun buyers.

Doesn't matter. To those who voted for him he can do no wrong. A worse president than dismal Jimmy, and the fools STILL re-elected him. He's playing to his base of morons, moochers, bedwetters, government worshipers, tax-suckers, and other miscellaneous human debris.
We can and have been doing it just fine ourselves, we don’t need your kind of “help”, baraq.
I don’t think this issue is dead. Note Dingy voted no. Had he voted yes to bring it to the floor and had it been defeated it could not again be brought up this session. Barky virtually guaranteed he will push for another vote in his diatrob yesterday. So, we won the first battle, hopefully we continue and win the second one with a majority vote.
Ahhhhhh! The Narcissist in Chief has his little panties in a wad. He didn’t get his way! “How dare those disrespectful Senators make me look like a fool!”
If we had an objective, non-partisan media this narcissist idiot would have been run out of town and country long ago. But it looks like there may be a glimmer of hope as some Democrats with a conscience (I know that is a stretch) are beginning to see wonder boy’s true identity.
Suck a lemon 0bama!
What he just witnessed was congress looking into the past and seeing the fate of politicians who voted for the Clintoon ban. He's right, it doesn't make sense... and the rogue variable that is derailing the equation is his 90% lie. Too bad there are a bunch of people among us whoa re too damn stupid to spot the real problem. After all, "it's for the children" you know.
We know that an armed America protects far more kids than an unarmed America ever would...We know that...Osama Obama knows that...Talk about a liar in chief...
The same can be said for many of the Conservatives in DC.
It's funny how the Liberals have NO compunction or difficulty in shedding relics of Liberalism... (maybe that is because Liberalism is ITSELF a relic) I don't know, but they turn their backs on conventional politics and conventional politicians instantaneously when and if it becomes expedient for them.
Why do Conservatives have this hide bound attachment to weak, vulnerable and vacillating politicians, JUST because they were ONCE representative of Conservatives.... way back when we only had to run against Liberals who at LEAST made a pretense of loving this country?? Why don't Conservatives step into the 21’st century and admit that their base is NO LONGER dowdy old-school Conservatives.
These two ought to switch parties. They're effectively Democrats anyway.
I agree, his supporters (athletic as he is a real dick?) will never veer off their adolation. What I was trying to address is how those in Congress view him. If they did not know before they were serving under a Capt Qwig type character, they surely know it now. By showing his fangs yesterday he proved to them he is a viper capable of biting anyone who does not agree with him on every issue. We will see if this had any affect when the immigration bill comes up for vote later. If they vote with their constituants views and legal precedent, they will vote against the IWON. If that happens, he is toast and may just explode into a 22nd amendment tantrum.
When did McLame EVER have nay use to conservatives? If he did it was so long in the past that everyone has long forgotten it.
They don’t really give a crap about guns. They are upset because this shows their other agendas like sex with children has no chance.
That would be a 'mountain' of dead kids .... those killed by the shooter and those killed by abortionists. Obama has approved of both by ignoring gang/youth violence, condoning (by doing nothing) F&F, and approving of the killing of babies .... mustn't "punish" girls/women with babies if they made a 'mistake'. Guns, bombs, etc. don't [on their own] kill kids, but EVIL does and right now, the national face of EVIL is Obama.
No, the Senators decided that the garbage being proposed wouldn’t have prevented Sandy Hook, Denver Theater, or Arizona parking lot shootings. So then there must have been another reason to try to pass these laws.
Obama: Senators decided protecting kids 'wasn't worth it'Democrats don't want to protect children, they want to have anal sex with them. Destroying the US Constitution beginning with the 2nd Amendment was supposed to eventually lead them there.
That is what their sad faces are really about.
