Appearing on ABC News’s “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. …

Yes, it’s Goldstein again; that ephemeral “faction” in the GOP. (Never mind repeating Tim Stanley’s lie from four months back.)

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]

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.

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.

The Usurper is right.

He did have 80 - 90% of the country agreeing with him.

It just wasn't ~this~ country.

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.

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.

0bama discussed Gun Control with 10 of his closest supporters. 8 or 9 of them agreed. Therefore the 80 to 90% claim of support.

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?

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.

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.

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...
