You can't shame the shameless: Obama lashes out


The Washington Times headline says it all:  "Obama angrily denounces gun-rights groups as willful liars." Story here: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/apr/17/obama-denounces-gun-rights-groups-willful-liars/

Wait...What? Obama is the one blowing smoke here, not the NRA, GOA or XYZ. Obama has continuously spread the lie that as many as 40% of guns are transferred without background checks, has never substantively answered the allegation that universal background checks are a Trojan horse for a national gun registry, has ignored the widespread belief that his measures do nothing about our real problems, and he has relied on wife beater polling to substantiate the claim that the American people are behind him. He has not convinced the skeptical that the bills under discussion would solve the deep problems behind the massacres at Virginia Tech, Aurora, Tucson or Newtown.

You see, the problem is not American citizens, the sane and law abiding great mass of us, exercising a fundamental right and wanting to do so in whatever privacy we have left. It's the crazies, stupid.

Hubris on Obama's level is not healthy either for himself or the country. He should chill. He should listen to his opposition, rather than lecturing us like retarded children. He should listen to himself. But I don't suppose he'll do any of that. Democrats are all in favor of democracy--except when it doesn't go their way.

At least, this time, it isn't Bush's fault.
