Just read this and had to post. Almost everything the president says in this quote is wrong. My comments bold in brackets:
“The House Republican majority is made up mostly of members who are in sharply gerrymandered districts [no more than Democrats] that are very safely Republican and may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion [the Constitution trumps public opinion], because what they’re really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican constituencies,” [yes, that is who they represent and how the system is supposed to work] the president said in an interview with The New Republic.
The president said he has a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that date back for generations. [Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting]
Wow, this is Propaganda 101, textbook stuff.
Since Obama is supposed to have been a Constitutional lawyer, he knows the Second Amendment is not about hunting. He and Biden have been hammering the “hunting” and “sporting” comments every time they talk about gun control in an attempt to make what they want more reasonable. Just like the left saying Republicans or conservatives are against “immigration,” when in reality it’s “illegal immigration.”
Also noticed how the president framed the issue upfront in this debate a few weeks ago, any “reasonable” person would agree to what he’s calling for. He calls them “commonsense” measures. So if you disagree, you must be “unreasonable” and have no sense. It’s like he has Jedi powers over the dolts on the left.
