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.
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.
“President Obama can’t see how Congress could buck public opinion to vote against new gun laws, he said in an interview released Tuesday. “
Maybe because the “public opinion” is an entire media fabrication.
Hitler- Brown Shirts.
The Nazis used them, and then took Them out after they’d served their purpose.
They aren't for once... you clueless, ignorant moron!
The existing gun laws aren’t even being enforced. Chicago, with it’s high homicide by gun numbers, has a backlog of cases it’s not even bothering to investigate. Because most of them would affect the “catered-to constituency”. These goons know full well that more gun control legislation will only affect law-abiding citizens. Or in some cases, previously law-abiding citizens.
So when that gang of the catered-to kicks in the door of your home while you, your wife, and your children are sitting there watching teevee or having dinner-when, after hours of rape, assault, possibly torture (setting on fire, forcing you to swallow bleach, etc-all of which and more have actually happened in recent crimes), and bagging up your valuables, they decide to kill everyone, the only “one life will be saved” will be that of the criminals, because the unarmed innocent citizens never stood a chance.
> hat event in American History which freed “your people”!
Heh, it was HIS people, the African Moslems, that ran the slave trade.
[[If Im not mistaken, we overwhelmingly did NOT WANT OBAMBICARE . . . what was it? . . . 76% against it?]]
Fox news is ‘reporting’ as high as 90% of peopel want gun control/backgroudn checks- Fox news doesn’t even bother to correct thsoe false numbers being claiemd by their guests- so we don’t even have theo ne ‘conservaGTIVE ‘news station in oru corner any logner-
So, constitutionality didn’t enter into it. If we decide things by “majority rules” (even though that wasn’t even the case in Obamacare), what do we need him for?
wooops- sorry- I thoguht you said ‘gun control’ I see now you were talkign about peopel not wantign the dearl eader’s health care- sorry for ocnfusion
If you are a straight Conservative white male or female; no, you do NOT count. To the guillotines with you...
