As Joe Biden looks on, looking like Walter by the way, Obama is visibly angry that he did not get his way in taking guns away. He said,
No one has said that these families do not have the right to weigh in on this issue. But millions of law abiding Americans also have the right. It is not the right of a few greiving families to take the rights away from millions more who have never done anything wrong. He wants to stand there and talk about lies and a pattern of spreading untruths? Are you serious, Obama? That is all you have done. You are the biggest liar to ever disgrace the Oval Office. You fund terrorism and YOU gave guns to the Mexican Drug Cartels in Fast and Furious. Where is YOUR background check? When you submit to a full one, so will I! I will pass it, you won't.“Families that know unspeakable grief summoned the courage to petition their elect leaders,” Obama said. “A few minutes ago, a minority in the U.S. Senate decided it wasn’t worth it. They blocked common sense gun reform even while these families looked on from the Senate gallery.”He said that while “a majority of senators voted yes to protecting more of our citizens with smarter background checks,” a minority of members were able to use a “distortion” of Senate rules to derail it. “Instead of supporting this compromise, the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill…[they] claimed it would create a ‘big brother’ gun registry,” Obama said. He said the “pattern of spreading untruths” about the legislation served a purpose: to enrage a vocal minority of gun owners." Obama said he has heard some refer to the Newtown families as “a prop” and “emotional blackmail” when they lobbied members of Congress“Are they serious? Do we really think that thousands of families whose lives have been shattered by gun violence do not have a right to weigh in on this issue?” Obama asked.
And how very hypocritical of you to stand there in indignation talking about the families being used as props as the families are right there beside you along with Gabbie Giffords, who before all of this, seemed perfectly fine wth guns. Hell, her own husband tried to buy an AR-15 just a few weeks ago.
She looks pretty comfortable with it to me. Maybe if she would have had one, Jared Laughner wouldn't have gotten a shot off. Nobody on the left likes that argument though. As they surround themselves with ARMED guards and scream about taking away the "common peoples" right to bear arms.
My position is this. Your plans for destroying this Great Nation are coming undone. Your once allies are beginning to turn their back on you. Even a rat knows to jump off of a sinking ship. The problem is, they are still rats. Everything is coming undone and people are waking up. Some have known since the beginning what you are all about, but the rest are know beginning to see and it means that you can't lie to us anymore. We smell the bullshit coming from you before it ever hits the ground.
