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.

Sad to say, but I think McClain has outlived his usefullness as a representative for Conservatives.

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's the way King Obozo, climb on top of a bunch of dead kids and spout your ideological BS

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.

If there were ever a more odious and despicable group of people than the "Newtown parents" who are reveling in the publicity garnered from the deaths of their children I can't think of who they would be. Zero is mighty low washing himself in the blood of children to push tyranny, but the parents rather than grieving for their kids are exploiting their deaths for a ride on air force 1, a vacation in Wash DC, and some publicity. The english language doesn't have a word bad enough to describe their behavior. Too bad the wack job didn't shoot the parents and spare the kids.

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.

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.

Democrats, leftists, Obama and ANYONE who supports them, a lot of US are literally in deep depression and near tears every day wondering why YOU are not in prison. You try to disarm those of us who are innocent by lying and vilifying us without cause and VIOLATE our constitution.

With every bad incident that occurs in this nation, the lying media follow the administration line and tell everyone that it is we conservatives (who are in tears) doing it when time after time it is shown that we have exercised self-discipline and are not involved.

And, we are supposed to be HAPPY with YOUR agenda? Are you nuts? And, if we begin to have domestic attacks by foreign entities, you're going to ask for OUR help? Who of us is going to help YOU when you try to disarm us and make us less safe?

When you find out who was involved in the Boston bombing, deport everyone who believes the same way they do. You probably won't believe me when I tell you, but I sure don't believe in killing innocent people to achieve an agenda. If that means I have to move to another country, so be it. You will find that I and those with me do not advocate that type of action. But if you can prove it, deport us. Or, deport whomever held the belief system of those involved. I dare you.

Yes, but Bengazi was a personal rejection. Someone had the effrontery to say no to the narcissist in chief. When you worship youself as a god, someone actually saying no doesn't sit well. In the now long forgotten debates when Romney didn't fall down and worship at his feet you could see that zero didn't like it at all.

I thought that it was funny how the sock-puppet was carrying on like a jackass without a script or teleprompter. I’ll bet his puppet handlers were a bit worried about what the idiot might say by mistake.

Good old Biden’s imitation of Walter, the ventriloquist dummy, was priceless.

May they all go swiftly to hell. Wish they’d worry more about why we need 1.6 gallons pressure cookers and try to get those registered immediately and out of houses NOW!. . . hell, they killed 3 people with the pressure cookers and not one person was shot by a bullet. How’d’dat’ happen?

I hear you, It’s stunning how the left wing media like MSLSD is still talking about guns and how those who voted against it are cowards.

We have what is supposed to be a news network ARF stating how certain reps are cowards and liars, and they’re not even covering TX, infact in their main headline they even ignored TX

I never watch the left wing crap but thought I’d give my oldest boy a lesson on how the left wing fanatics act and how they cover stories and how they ignore stories

And, if the NRA and congresscritters had any sense of public relations, they would have a day of “guns save lives” in every state with at least 20 “victims” whose lives were saved because they had a gun so they could tell their stories.

It’s not dead. Laws are never settled until the left gets what they want (see the sodomite agenda), then once they do, they berate the right for continuing to oppose “settled law” (ie abortion, obamacare). Their hypocrisy would be breathtaking from anyone other than them-from them, it’s Alinsky tactics as usual.

First, nothing in the bill would have prevented Lanza from committing his mass murder. Armed faculty might have done so - was there anything in that bill about letting qualified faculty members (say, those with concealed carry licenses) carry in school? Didn’t think so.

Second, they’re not my kids. Freedom is worth a few risks and I’ll do my best to protect my own kids. I don’t need any Federal Laws trying to “protect” them.

F*** these hyper partisan Left Wing dead children vultures who say “if we can save only one more life, then we MUST do this”.

Saving one more life wasn't any big deal when brave Americans were in combat for 30 lives in Benghazi, leaving 4 of them slaughtered without any help ever being sent to "save" their lives. Can anyone imagine the media frenzy to attack GWB if he said we must change our constitutional rights and laws if it means we can kill even "one more" terrorist?

They don't give a crap about “lives” being saved, its all painful propaganda at the expense of those grieving parents who are used as modern AstroTurf for their political issue of the day.

As time goes on these poor people will feel used and these political Left Wing Vultures will drop them like a bad habit to move onto their next group to exploit.

Meanwhile families of those who died in Benghazi are ignored and their killers are alive and well.

The truth about this phony basturd is becoming obvious ...the bloom is off the rose , he has no political skills if he doesn't have overwhelming odds with his party. His relevance is lessening with every passing moment and even democrats are tiring of his arrogance and bluster. Because of his political stupidity he hooked his wagon not to a rising star but falling meteorite....the big bang has just begun!!!

Exploiting Families Of Sandy Hook Victims Backfires

Posted 04/17/2013 06:28 PM ET

As Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said on Wednesday, “in some cases” the president has used Newtown victims and their families as props. While still grieving, they were flown on Air Force One to lobby Congress, with the president repeatedly insisting — yelling, in fact — that “this is not about politics!”

There is something repugnant about the parents of murdered children being exploited several months later. It’s especially distasteful when the victims’ parents are hardly unanimous on gun control. Note Mark Mattioli, who compellingly called for well-trained, on-site armed guards to protect schoolchildren as a more effective alternative to new gun laws.
