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.
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.
