Obama angrily denounces gun-rights groups as willful liars
The Washington Times ^ | 4/17/2013 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 04/17/2013 3:35:07 PM PDT by markomalley

President Obama angrily blamed the defeat Wednesday of his centerpiece gun-control proposal on lies spread by the National Rifle Association, calling it “a pretty shameful day for Washington.”

“The gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill,” Mr. Obama said in the White House rose garden about 90 minutes after the vote. “It came down to politics.”

As he spoke, Mr. Obama was surrounded by family members of victims of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. Also with him was former Rep. Gabby Giffords of Arizona, wounded in an assassination attempt.

Senators voted 54-46 late Wednesday to expand background checks of gun purchases, six votes shy of the 60 needed for passage of the amendment.

Apparently neither Giffords nor the Sandy Hook victims see the irony in being used as props for a bill that would not have saved them.

I’ve been saying all along that Mark Kirk is NOT a Republican, no matter what letter he has after his name. He sides with the Dims more than most Dims do!

I wonder who’s paying to hotel those folks from Newtown while they are in Wash DC being paraded around like puppies?

Think they’re bunking with Uncle Joe in his backyard cabin?

Was anyone watching The Five when Obama came on? I thing they expected Obama to comment on the Boston Marathon.

Greg Gutfeld listened to Obama’s opening words and said, “Oh, is that all this is!” Then they cut back to the program.

After the commercial break, he did say he could have handled that better. I disagree. It was perfect.

Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Susan Collins (Maine), Pat Toomey (Pa.), and Mark Kirk (Ill.), they ALL need to be PRIMARIED !
None of these TRAITORS are Republican, as far as I'm concerned.
They need to be drowned in advertisements, publicizing their vote!

It's only April 17th and you are asking that?

Think they’re bunking with Uncle Joe in his backyard cabin?

Nah, he'd charge them rent just like the Secret Service.

Maybe they stayed here:

It's pretty close to Capitol Hill.

I don’t think either one of them will be re-elected to their seat. McCain is definitely finished. I think Collins will not run again. Kirk will lose. And Toomey will be primaried.

We need to require background checks for candidates running for President of the United States.
We need to persecute people who forge fake birth certificates, especially when running for public officer.
We need background checks for voter rights, to get rid of ILLEGAL ALIENS voting, especially ones from Kenya.

Hopefully the NRA,flush with new revenue from recent new
memberships, will make an effective ad exposing this frauds
willfull misinformation, and carpetbomb the airwaves with
it.

The second amendment defends the first after all.

“The gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill,” Mr. Obama said in the White House rose garden ...

Where are your links to YouTube videos which substantiate your assertions about the gun lobby lying Mr. Obama? They should be going viral by now.

As a side note about videos which substantiate accusations of lying, even if Obama guard dog Fx News ignores Congress's Section 8, Article I-limited powers, Article V and the 10th Amendment when discussing Obama's constitutionally indefensible public policies, Fx does a good job of showing videos about Obama's blatant lies to citizens imo.

You're being awfully optimistic.

Well, I figure that by then there should be at least 350 million guns in civilian hands (and probably more like 375 million, if the pace of the last 4 years keeps up), and that the one being optimistic would be the one who wanted to see what the 2nd Amendment was really intended to do.

Pro-gun groups need to go on the offensive and ask every polidiot why they want to harm our children by making their adult defenders defenseless. Why do they want to make college women get raped by making them defenseless?

They should ask Obama directly what his goals are by trying to make the American people defenseless? What is his ultimate goal? Communism?

I am reminded of Representative Joe Wilson, Republican of South Carolina, interrupted of President Obama’s speech to Congress with a shout of “You lie!”

I am also reminded of all of the fascinating Social Security numbers and birth certificate information, along with school and other records that list him as not a US citizen.

Now, isn't the President's calling pro-gun-rights folks liars, a case of the pot calling the kettle black? Or is that a racist comment on my part?
