Appearing on ABC Newss This Week With George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, President Barack Obama said he had 80 to 90 percent of the country agreeing with him in favor of gun control, but the he could not get gun-control legislation enacted because of a faction of the Republican Party.
Obama made the observation about the supermajority of Americans he believes favor gun control when Stephanopoulos asked him why the issues he had chosen to focus on at the beginning of his second term seem to have stalled.

Yeah, those damn wascally Wepubwicans — the people DEMAND to have their rights stolen and those guys are such rigid ideologues that they insist on the people keeping their rights against their will.
At least that what the Dumbascraps ask you to believe. No wonder all the Hollywierdos are Democrats, they’re all in the suspension-of-disbelief business. [facepalm]
Anyone have a link to that poll? LOL
Dems and pubs ousted the 2 idiot state senators in CO.
Obama, your advisors are not giving you the full story. They tell you what you want to hear.
Wake up, idiot.
Really? Can Obama explain the Colorado recall for us? Obama can’t even get the Democrats on board and yet he still blames the GOP. Obama is a weasel.
Clown Prince President nobama always just makes-up sh**. What a fraud.
He wants to pretend that one small section like tighter controls on those with mental illness buying guns applies to complete disarmament of the entire population. The problem is that implementing that section would require the shattering of any pretense of doctor/patient confidentiality or secrecy of medical records which I don’t think most people would be willing to agree to when presented openly.
It was some very general question about universal background checks as opposed to the bill on the floor, which was probably dishonestly selected (those surveyed), then dishonestly counted, and then dishonestly quoted. Or maybe they just asked all hundred guys The Won’s slept with, and 80-90 of them were in favor.
They get this garbage from talking to their fishbowl pals and friends in the media and then they thinks it's true.
Hey 80-90% of the people [living in the White Hut} support this. Malia’s on the fence.
More made up numbers and lies.
Don't really want to know where he pulled that little factoid out of.
It’s very simple. Hussein is a Muslim and prefers the American people have no guns. Done.
1) Obama tells lies.
2) The media repeats them.
3) Idiots believe the media.
He is a Muslim. They lie as a way of life.
I picked that one appart a looooong time ago.
Heck I haven't posted the info since last May.
Little bammy must have forgotten that everybody figured out the lie...
90% - 80%
“How does that half breed illegal alien in the white hut come up with such outlandish bullshit?”
Helps to have good speech writers.
If his purple lips are moving, he’s telling a lie.
You would think that BO would stop it with all the Republican bashing once he realized how badly he needed their support with his Syria debacle. He may need their support again. He loves to fight his fellow Americans because he isn’t afraid of them. Won’t stand up to Putin, cause he’s too afraid.
to lie is very easy when the voting majority are idiots.
Or to put it another way, their story is that the same guys who get laughed out of the Rent-A-Spine store, who won't stand up for anything, ever, are suddenly standing on principle WITHOUT having their feet held to the fire by their constituents, even though it will incur the wrath of the moneyed political class AND the media, all to save something their constituents don't even care about. Yeah, right.
to lie is very easy when the voting majority are idiots.
If you spoke like the way Obama speaks, that’s over 1000 percent that want it.
80-90% want gun control?
I guess he’s back on the crack, like most progressives
This guy went to college and still can’t do math?
80-90% of the people in the 57 states all agree...
The Liar-in-Chief lies again.
These days, it’s only news if he tells the truth; THAT could make headlines.
0bama discussed Gun Control with 10 of his closest supporters. 8 or 9 of them agreed. Therefore the 80 to 90% claim of support.
If that is true, it reveals just how inept and pathetic the Clown’s “leadership” qualities are!
This is great insight into our President's state of mind and view of his "world."
Maybe if you consider all "57" states, and a selected subset of the population to get to your 80-90%. Maybe he means that 80-90% of the people know that guns can be dangerous if misused. Maybe he only considered blue states. Who knows?
With comments like that Obummer has proved he has spent way too much time in the Choom Room!
There you go again mister soetero.
You got proof he went to college? I’d like to see that.;)
I don’t think people thought it through when they said mental health checks should be part of granting gun licenses. It can’t go anywhere good if the government gets to decide who’s too crazy to own a gun.

What a lying sack o crap!
Emily miller points out in her book “Emily Gets Her Gun” that these polls were paid for by Bloomberg. Doug Schoen is one who conducted them.
Must be nice to pay for polls to get your desired outcome. Effing scumbags.
And yet you failed miserably to get anything done. Either your number is BS (it is) or you're the worst leader in history (you are).
“Hussein is a Muslim and prefers the American people have no guns. Done.”
Nailed it! It’s in the Koran: weapons may be possessed ONLY BY MUSLIMS!
(Tell that to this “infidel”)
He can’t not lie. It’s a condition of his kind.
Is that 1000% of all 57 states though? Or 1000% of blue states and 80 to 90% of red states. So that’s 10008090% of the country.
What percentage are those of us in that faction of the GOP?
Math is hard...
Thats why hes known far and wide as the Dear Liar . Although his official title should be: His excellency and exulted Dear Liar the illegitimate, ruler of all (PBUH)
He's no different than a republican or a democrat politician. They lie as a way of life.
