Anyone notice the rousing welcome Obama got at the U.S. Military Academy this morning? They cheered like corpse-men.

Is This A Party Thinking Of The Future?

Duck DynastyĎs Phil Robertson is going to keynote the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans tomorrow:

Robertson will talk to the annual confab in the evening of its opening day, the conference announced Tuesday. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) are among the people also scheduled to speak Thursday evening at the conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Yíall know I like the Duck Dynastists, and I think Phil Robertson got a raw deal when he was trashed earlier this year. Still, I wonder what the GOP is trying to accomplish by giving the Duck Commander the prime spot in its big event. Is putting a reality TV celebrity, one known for being extremely polarizing in the culture war, in that slot really the sign of a party thatís looking outside of its own navel? Again, I say that as somebody who is all for the Duck guys, but also as someone who doesnít understand why the Republican Party thinks it can grow itself by identifying itself so strongly with the South and white Southern culture.

Itís hard to get more iconic of the rural Bible Belt South than the Duck Commander. Hey, I live in the rural South, and Iím glad I do. But this is a big country.

He's doing the lying all by himself to cover up his incompetency as a president.
His outrage about every scandal and doing nothing about them - and reading about every one of them in the newspapers - is getting very old and tiring even to liberals who once defended him as blindly and loyally as you do on here.
lol! Which is why reich wing whiners offer... nothing... as an alternative.

Seems straightforward there....

Most legal scholars agree that gun control has nothing to do with the 2nd, it has everything to do with public health and public safety!
i agree. but there's the usual obstacle.

The NRA's Orwellian Games On Guns And The Mentally Ill

There's no defense quite like a good offense. But this one relies on a falsehood.

The National Rifle Association, under fire in many quarters for scuttling popular legislation to require near-universal background checks for gun purchases, is embarking on a new campaign to prove that it cares about preventing future shootings. The group is talking up the need to keep firearms away from mentally ill people -- a cause that it frequently invokes.

The gun lobby organization is putting out a print ad lamenting that mental health reform is "being held hostage" -- the three words are creatively splayed out to look like a hostage note -- by President Obama and Democrats. Reported this week by the Washington Examiner, the group intends to spend $55,000 on the ad campaign.

A compelling message -- from a strange messenger. It's not merely that a bill the NRA helped kill in April would have closed loopholes through which criminals and mentally ill people can currently buy guns without a background check. It's also that the NRA-backed substitute legislation, which also failed in the Senate, would have made it easier for people with a history of severe mental illness to buy firearms.

Specifically, the NRA supported a bill offered by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) that would have let people who have been involuntarily committed to psychiatric hospitals buy guns immediately after their commitment order expired.

Under the Grassley-Cruz bill, "[p]eople recently hospitalized and still recovering from a mental health crisis could go directly from the hospital to a gun store -- and legally buy a firearm," explained a trio of mental health law and policy experts in the D.C. newspaper The Hill. "Guns that were seized at the time of hospitalization would have to be returned."

The three professors -- Columbia University's Paul Appelbaum, University of Virginia's Richard Bonnie and Duke University's Jeffrey Swanson -- argued that this would be dangerous. "The expiration of an involuntary commitment order is often just the starting point in a person's ongoing recovery from an acute episode of a mental disorder," they wrote. "Indeed, attempts at suicide and other acts of violence following hospitalization are most likely to occur shortly after discharge, with the risk diminishing over time."

The NRA-backed Grassley-Cruz legislation would also have restored gun rights for people who "have been adjudicated mentally incompetent" to enter into contracts. And although its supporters say it enhanced resources and incentives to improve mental health reporting, it would ultimately have cut funding for the background check system by about $105 million.

"The NRA is at the point of shamelessness where they hand legislative language to Senators and say they can help get more mentally ill people into the system, when Grassley-Cruz would in fact do precisely the opposite," said Mark Glaze, the executive director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group led by Michael Bloomberg. "[T]he NRA has spent a generation making sure anyone can buy any gun and carry it anywhere -- including felons and the seriously mentally ill."

Hmmm. What we have here is 61% of Democrats saying that either Bush was definitely not "in on" 9/11 or they don't have enough information to make a decision one way or the other. Seems about right

Certainly proves that the majority of Democrats are smarter than the 55% of Republicans who believe Obama wasn't born in the United States.
