Skip to comments.Obama: 'Unimaginable' Congress would 'defy' Americans on guns
Posted on 04/16/2013 8:13:02 AM PDT by To-Whose-Benefit?
President Obama can't see how Congress could buck public opinion to vote against new gun laws, he said in an interview released Tuesday.
The notion that Congress would defy the overwhelming instinct of the American people after what we saw happen in Newtown I think is unimaginable, he told "Today" show host Savannah Guthrie in an interview conducted before Monday's explosions at the Boston Marathon.
The Senate is expected to vote on gun legislation later this week, though it's not yet clear whether there will be enough votes for it to pass. Obama has been calling lawmakers to try to convince them to vote in favor of tougher gun laws, The Associated Press reported late Monday.
In the budget released last week, Obama said he offered Republicans a realistic compromise."
It does not give Republicans everything they want. Frankly, it doesn't reflect everything that I would like to see, he said. What it does is it puts forward some of the ideas that Republicans had suggested around entitlement reform that I think are reasonable policy.
Ah, right on schedule, the t*rd speaks.
I’m an American, Obama, and I don’t want congress to take any action at all.
Do I not count or something?
He’s a genius in his own mind.
Narcissists generally do NOT do well when they are voted against. Interested to see what he tries after the gun bills fail.
Then they need to man up and declare the 2nd amendment null and void.
I dare them.
Yes, it would be... so Congress should leave the laws as is.
If I’m not mistaken, we overwhelmingly did NOT WANT OBAMBICARE . . . what was it? . . . 76% against it?
So why did we get THAT shoved down our throats?
And where in the hell did this sock-puppet hear that Americans overwhelmingly wanted gun control? Are his handlers feeding him stupid things to say?
Surrounding yourself with mindless sycophants does have it’s downside.
What’s ‘Unimaginable’ is that after we had Obama in action for 4 years, our own party threw the election so we could get stuck with Obama for another 4 years.
I dare ya.
If Congress were responsive to the "overwhelming instinct of the American people" it would be hastily repealing gun laws.
Unfathomable the One would claim consensus and ownership of this issue.
The ‘overwhelming instinct’ of Americans knows WHY the government was to registers everyone’s guns; To confiscate them.
In other words, He finds it objectionable that Congress seems unwilling to go along with his Treasonous Acts.
Oh, really, ZerO? You sure were glad they did it when they passed Obamacare, weren't you?
well, Mr. President, first of all, Congress better vote against the people if what the people want is unconstitutional... secondly, there is not an overwhelming sentiment for gun control... thirdly, you didn’t have this attitude of Congress going against the will of the people when you pushed Obamacare... you simply do not know what it is to be an American... you do not get it...
He seems to be pretty upset at the founders who put some circuit breakers in place to keep fools like this from getting their way 100% of the time.
You have to also keep in mind that confiscation isn’t the “holy grail” for them.
It’s what they can/want to do AFTER confiscation that we should be rubbing their nose in.
Are you a white male?
These checks etc. affect only the good guys.
NYS: So the bad guy shows up at an event and checks his magazines....yup...capacity 30 - all set to go.
And a cop approaches him. The cop had just checked his hardware...yup...only 7 bullets.
The bad guy starts running...turning and shooting behind him at the cop. The cop says "time out"....I have to reload.
Even were he telling the truth about Americans and support for gun comtrol, he’s a big fat liar, because he had no problem shoving Obamacare down our throats when a majority of Americans repeatedly opposed it.
And enforcing EXISTING immigration laws...not shoving amnesty down our throats.
So much for Representation.
Hadn’t even read yours yet and thought the same thing!
Obama only hears what he wants to hear.
And he surrounded himself with all Yes-men and women.
We are not HIS PEOPLE, so we don’t count.
So, how much is “he doesn’t get it”,
and how much is “he has another agenda”.
The son of a bi7ch is friggin delusional.
‘Obama is still optimistic that the Senate GOP will see reason with your help making phone calls and letters pleading with them. He needs YOUR help to make sure the Sandy Hook Moms are the last ones to cry on (camera-on cue), at least until something else goes wrong’
This isn’t about law and order, good guys or bad.
This is about control. Control over you and us. They use law and children as props but this is about Marxism/Communism. They want it as it gives them money and power.
And it’s unimagineable that YOU would ‘defy’ The American People on Obamacare.
But you did...
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Traitor Roberts proclaimed that our representatives were following the will of the people.
He's not going to become a capitalist roader or a deviationist any time soon ~
All eyes are off Congress and on Boston! Watch out!
Obama wants his own WACO and Ruby Ridge.
If he continues in this direction he will ignite a second civil war, or maybe we are already in one and it hasn’t sunk in yet. He has defied the American people at every turn. He’s just angry we haven’t bowed to his will.
Hey Obozo! What about the Civil War, buddy?? You know, that event in American History which freed "your people"!!!
Secret liberal decoder ring translation: Obama: ‘Unimaginable’ Congress would ‘defy’ Americans on guns = Unimaginable that reason and respect for the constitution would defy the emotional blackmail scam I been running to disarm innocent law abiding white people whose property my hoodie mau maus want to confiscate. Ya know like in South Africa?
Obama is the worst sort of liar. He puts words in other people’s mouths that they would never have said.
This is the case with most leftists. They just find it "unimaginable" that people won't recognize their superiority and just obey and comply.
I stand corrected.
Obama lies about the support for gun control. He lies about a lot of other stuff also.
Click on the link below to see surveys on the desire for gun control. Pew, ABC Washington Post, and Gallop. None of these are conservative and quite frankly lean left.
Guess who’s on tV, the king himself. We, we, we, I, we.
Exactly why we are NOT a Democracy, but a Constitutional Republic.
But I’m sure how the Amendment progress works just slipped the mind of the ‘Constitutional scholar’
Way to go O; showing again why you’re the socialist turd.
Once again, the Current Occupant of the White Hut is reading America wrong.
Whether The Won knows it or not, there is a vast area called “flyover country”, AKA as the “red states”, where the whole Bill of Rights is taken quite seriously, particularly the 1st, the 2nd, the 4th, and the 10th.
The territory once known as “the United States of America” is NOT 100% in favor of whatever it is that has been rammed down our throats over the past 4+ years.
And now, in an international snub of unparalleled gall, nobody representing the Current Regime is being sent to attend the funeral of Lady Thatcher of England. That is not merely rude, it is of unthinkably callous and boorish behavior. And this announcement was made BEFORE the Boston terrorist bombing.
“President Obama can’t see how Congress could buck public opinion to vote against new gun laws,”
pResident O’Commie, maybe you were doing too many drugs while you slid through college and got that fake law license you had to surrender (why, we still don’t know) but OPINIONs majority or minority are not Constitutional Laws.
Why is it so hard for these mental defective affirmative actions POS to understand what a Constitution is, why it was created, and why it should only be modified by an Amendment process NOT Opinion.
I could only wish this POS would read this but we all know the ruling elite just ignore us.
I would beg to differ; EVERYONE on the left get it! Every dictator gets it. So what if only criminals have guns. Criminals are not a threat to totalitarian rule and actually drive the public to demand totalitarian rule, that is once the public is disarmed and helpless.
