The thing that pi$ses me off is the moron is putting all his energy into a knee jerk reaction and is doing absolutely jack shyte about the impending debt ceiling.<quoted text>
I'm not talking about flawed idiots as I agree they run rampant in both parties, I'm talking about the IDEALISMS of your party. THAT is what's flawed.
There was an assault weapons and high round magazine ban from 1994 to 2004. Do you know what? It had ZERO effect on gun violence. ZERO. Chicago had a hand gun ban until very recently and still saw an average of five hundred murders from shootings a year.
Strict gun laws and gun bans have been PROVEN ineffective. Yet whenever there's a shooting, you people shout "we need more gun control!" A knee jerk reaction, feel good legislation, that does absolutely NOTHING! NOTHING!
Please tell me where the sense is in that?
And does our president really think the American people are gonna lay down and allow our rights to be trampled? Does he?
No leadership on the issue ... no negotiating on the issue ... no compromise on the issue. Let's sit around a d' around and talk about feel good gun legislation and do nothing about the impending debt ceiling. Really smart man, he is, isn't he? He really has his priorities straight, doesn't he?
I hope the Republicans call his bluff and push forward a bill that only authorizes enough borrowing to pay for a limited number of programs and include in any such bill the specific programs that the money is to be spent on. For example, they can authorize additional debt to pay ONLY for SS and Medicare and certain programs of their choosing and direct that any such lending be used only for these programs. If Obama doesn't want to negotiate over spending cuts, they can force the spending cuts. Obama's only alternative in such an instance would be to hold EVERYONE HOSTAGE and not sign the bill and make everyone suffer.
The guy is the biggest fraud ever perpetuated on the American public and his recent spiel about how it was his naivety that caused him to refuse to vote for the debt ceiling when he was senator is only further proof of this.
His spiel is merely a smoke screen to cover for the fact that he was doing nothing more than political grandstanding when he voted against increasing the ceiling as a Senator, in the hopes that folks would think he was serious about debt and fiscal matters such as to pave the way to his presidency.
Fool me once, shame on you ... fool me twice, I'm the fool. At least he only fooled me once...
