A Shameful Day for President Obama
Creators Syndicate ^ | April 19, 2013 | David Limbaugh

Posted on 04/18/2013 1:26:26 PM PDT by jazusamo

I wonder why President Obama feels he has the right to be outraged when legislators don't automatically roll over to his policy demands. I suspect that his moral indignation is more about personally losing than it is about policy issues themselves.

For indeed, President Obama was obviously furious when his gun control bill failed to muster sufficient votes to pass the Senate. Politico reported, "More than anything, it was an emotional blow to Obama, who was as irritated at the four members of his own party as he was at the 90 percent of Republicans who defeated the bill."

Politico revealed that an administration official said Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp's refusal to support the bill especially rankled Obama because she "refused to go along with the bill even after White House chief of staff Denis McDonough visited her office to make Obama's case on Tuesday."

Do you see clues to Obama's mindset here? How dare a member of a coequal branch of government, especially one in his own party, defy Obama's wishes and refuse to succumb to his fabled powers of persuasion?

Politico would have us believe that the impetus for Obama's emotional investment in the bill was that he was "shaken to the core by the massacre of 26 innocents at Sandy Hook Elementary School." He was allegedly so upset that he "broke his own informal 'Obama Rule' — of never leaning into an issue without a clear path to victory."

I'm not buying any of it. I don't believe that Obama was any more personally shaken by Sandy Hook than he was by the Gosnell abortion clinic infanticide atrocity. What I do know is that Obama is a leftist gun control zealot who seizes on crises as opportunities to advance unpopular policies.

Obama acted like a little boy throwing a tantrum holding his breath and stomping his feet, most unbecoming for a POTUS.

They fell for their own lie.

“Gun control is supported by 90% of Americans”.

Yeah when polled on just one issue.

But when polled on ALL issues, gun control is only 4%.

What’s at the top is what the DNC and the state media must keep of the news:

ITS THE ECONOMY STUPID.

He should pull a Louis XIV and just not meet with the Estates General at all.

And I just LOVED watching that affirmative action fraud lose his cool.

They did not even poll on the issue. They asked generically “would you be in favor of a background check if it would stop criminals and the mentally ill from buying a gun?” Hard to see how they ever got 10% to answer “no” to that.

Everything Obama has been given is because of his skin color.

So sad that Romney did not have the cojones to start needling him during the campaign in hopes of provoking such a meltdown.

That’s because he is a man child who hasn’t grown past the tempter throwing stage. He does this constantly so it’s nothing new. Unbecoming, most definitely, but that’s what the majority want.

He's p!ssed because he lied, he cried, he shamed the memory of dead children, he abused the parents of said dead children by parading them for effect, he abused the brain-damaged Gabby Giffords for effect...and he still lost BIG.

He made a complete fool of himself and, at some level, he knows it.

The Senators are listening to their constituents. But Obama is listening to his Communist puppet masters and he knows they aren't happy with this loss.

Obama is a media creation.

He has no pedigree, no intellect nor anything but a lazy Communist who will let Jarrett and Axelrod ruin the country for his sociopathic needs.

Obama is a fraud beyond anything we have ever known, a person who hates the US and is coddled by a press that shares the same sentiment.

He lost the gun battle, so now Biden threatens EO’s to restrict them more...we don’t live in the USA, we live in the USSA or N. Korea.

Yes, he did all that and is all too aware he made a fool of himself.

Dave Limbaugh: “I don’t believe that Obama was personally shaken by Sandy Hook” Me neither. Obama’s first reaction was I got the NRA now. It was all about marginalizing the NRA and making its support toxic in 2014.

About 10% of us are so conditioned to media driven pollsters that we won't give them the answer they want to hear no matter what. That's actually encouraging. Only 5% of Americans were initially supportive of the American Revolution.

And it looks like the economy is already tired again. I wish it were not so bit I’m afraid it is.

The economy is tired of not having a national vision and leadership. We have a loser for a leader and we have become losers with him. Moreover, he is throwing the game on purpose because he is playing for the other team.

I wonder when all this is going to become obvious to even the stupid class?

Obama is an actor who can play to any audience at any time as fits his purpose and those of his enablers. As is the situation with Hollywood and it’s actors and actresses these people are narcissists who have an audience/public in their hands. Obama and his mesmerized audience are part of Lincoln’s admonition about being fooled. He is a good talker though with his Mussolini chin up display.

Obama was outraged at not getting what he wanted: limits on the civil, unalienable rights of Americans.

He was NOT outraged at:

1. Fast n Furious.
2. Benghazi
3. Gosnell trial
4. Black Panthers at the polls
5. His minister and personal mentor blaming America for 9/11

...this list could go on for a while, but it let’s a person into the mind of the man.
