I wonder when the President will take the parents of the Ambassador, and those former SEALS massacred at Benghazi for a ride on AF1? No taxpayer paid rides for them.
So you don't object to wasted taxpayer funds, just wasting them on people you don't like?

Your feeble attempts to blame Obama for Benghazi haven't panned out, have they? Is it just because no one believes he's the one responsible? Don't MOST people know that TERRORISTS killed those Americans?

I think so.

We are told, every day by That One that "we are in the worst recession since the Great Depression," yet the frauds in the White House party like it's 1982, with those of us still having jobs paying the catering bill.

Covered WHAT up, you idiot? We KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, and your side hasn't YET proved that Mr. Obama is in any way guilty of ANYTHING. Why do you keep blaming him while giving terrorists a pass, huh?

Does that give you the right to take our rights and freedoms granted in the constitution........I don't think so.

You should read the papers, Rice lied about the cause of the riots, Hillary said who gives a shit what happened. On Obama's watch, and under his direction and approval.

Do you have an actual job, you know, beyond MediaMatters Troll?

It's three o'clock in the morning, the phone rings, Obama sent it to voice mail. Inaction is the same as no action. Those men could have been saved had Obama or Hillary taken actions.

Lie. Liberalism is about nothing BUT freedom. Freedom and "no rules" are two very, very different things, and reasonable gun safety laws giving people the freedom to live on safer streets don't violate the constitution at all.

Stop spouting your freedom nonsense - freedom is believing we can have common sense gun safety laws, freedom is believing we don
t have some crazy gunning down innocent folks on the street of our freedom-loving country, our schools, our malls and our parking lots.

Btw, some of the paranoid rhetoric from some of your gun gnutters should give us a whole lot of food for thought and gives us some ideas of why our gun culture and gun violence is so laughable - and shocking.

You guys keep talking about losing our freedoms but it is pure propaganda and paranoia. Check the black helicopters.

If you feel inclined to purchase a weapon, do it! Do not listen to these people. If it makes you feel safe and secure then the 2nd amendment works. You see the craziness everyday. Most of it caused by UNREGULATED progressive policies. These morons find it easier to let all suffer , then to attack the real problems, most they caused. The former richest nation in the world near the top in practically every important field of success, afirst world giant, now has permanent third world areas that are growing. What is worse, we are becoming a second world nation of government tyranny. We let idiots that can't take care of themselves or are marginal at it rule the roost.

Obama Will Become First President To Spend $4 Trillion In One Year…

The OMB’s historical tables also reveal that the White House does not expect this administration to ever run an annual deficit as low as $458.5 billion, which was the deficit the government ran in fiscal 2008, the last fiscal year completed before Obama took office

http://redflagnews.com/headlines/omb-obama-wi...

The fraud that is Barak is so black he can't even shoot hoops! What an embarassment.

As for Moochelle, she isn't the smart, intelligent woman the media makes her out to be. She's 50 and her stated idol is space cadet Beyonce who is 20 years her junior. This is who the liberal voters think can become president after Barack?

The couple use the weakest link in America to further their personal agendas, children and unborn children who either can't get born, who are born and carry their lavish credit card spending debt on their shoulders the day they are born, and who starved for 7 hours being trucked in like cattle to Moochelle's publicity tour in Chicago. They were told not to bring food and did not get served any food for 7 hours because she didn't want signs of food at HER ANTI-OBESITY event. Of course, Bison Breath Moochelle snacked on ribs before, during and after the even. I can't see her going without food for 2 hours no less 7 hours. She is a dumb broad and people ought to wake up to this too. The media keep calling her smart and intelligent. There is only proof she's a dumb broad like Beyonce, her idol, who turned into a Linda Blair at the NFL. Moochelle has a bad influence on people. She represents badly.

1. ",,,,,your gun gnutters should give us a whole lot of food for thought...."

- What good is "food for thought" when you've got nothing to eat it?

2. ".....have common sense gun safety...."

- Please drop the rhetorical weasel words; "common sense......" is simply Orwellian for "What I want"

3. ".....losing our freedoms but it is pure propaganda and paranoia...." is the most blatant declaration that you've never been to a totalitarian country, know nothing about how they come in to place and have NEVER opened a History Book

- Name ONE totalitarian country that doesn't have your version of "common sense gun 'safety' Laws"

4. EVERY act you mentioned is ALREADY illegal:

-"some crazy"...... is ALREADY prohibited from firearm possession

- "gunning down innocent folks"...... is ALREADY prohibited

- "paranoid rhetoric...." is precisely the same rhetoric used by our Founding Fathers

- The "gun gnutters" to whom you refer are well educated enough to know the reality of this widely known Quote:

MARTIN NIEMÖLLER, a German U-boat captain and later pacifist pastor, who was thrown into a concentration camp by the Nazis, coined the famous lament:“When the Nazis came to take the Communists, I was silent. After all, I was no Communist. When they took the Jews, I was silent. I am no Jew. When they arrested the Social Democrats, I was silent. I was no Social Democrat. When they came to take me, there was no one left to protest.”&#8232;

The dependence of "Feel Good", weasel words/terms:(gun SAFETY"), "common sense"by folks who have proven a desire to eliminate ALL private gun ownership exemplifies the vapidity of their "Logic".

It's ALREADY against the law to murder etc

AND

The most people massacred, per incident were were not victims of a "scary gun" but from a simple easily obtainable gasoline bomb:
(NYC Night Club 1980s

So, just be honest and say that you hate/ fear firearms and want them banned.

----After all:

"Who needs 'Weasel Words' if your Logic is sound & cause is Just?"

The President says this gun control business is not about him, but it is. He does not make a move that is not calculated to make himself look good as President. He has some good ideas, but he spend all his time on issues that he knows the Republicans wil not support him on. He could be a great President, but he is his own worst enemy.
