I watched Obama lay out his new gun control “actions” today. To any uninformed individual you would think that the directives are a perfectly normal reaction to a horrific tragedy that was Newtown. The ignorant masses will claim “this is our leader at his finest”. A tragedy happens, our dear leader comforts the victims, calmly reflects on a resolution, and then acts on his conclusions. What a great man.
What a bunch of crap. Obama has a blueprint that has placed him in positions of power and he uses it to perfection. That blueprint involves placing his opponents in lose/lose situations. Most rational common sense people understand that any new gun control measure will do little or nothing to stop a madman intent on killing. Yet Obama seizes on the opportunity of tragedy. Same thing he did with Gabby Giffords (remember the pep rally in Tuscon), same thing he did with Hurricane Sandy, and the BP oil spill to name a few “opportunities” for the purpose of pushing his agenda.
This demonizing is very effective and he follows the same routine, hold a press briefing about how terrible the situation is, measure up his opponent’s position, and then go on TV telling the American public his opponent hates old people, dogs, and children. If seniors lose their medicare, it is the republicans fault. If gun control measures are not passed by congress, it is the right-wing extremist who don’t care for the children. If we don’t pass these new environmental regulations, republicans don’t care about the environment, dogs could die. His penchant for blaming Republicans for whatever ills are currently facing the nation is very effective, no matter how transparent.
And when he is saddled with the blame, all we get is crickets. Benghazi? Fast & Furious? Solyndra? No press briefings now because his finger-pointing is in the mirror. Now you get late friday document dumps, a sick or injured Secretary of State, executive orders shielding an Attorney General. You don’t see him out in front with his fist in the air demanding answers with the urgency he showed on gun control. He cowers in the White House surrounded by attorneys directing him on how best to cover his ass. What a sad man. And what a sad excuse for a President.
