Poor Guy: Obama “Shocked” He Couldn’t Get Gun Control Passed After Newtown Massacre
President Obama was reportedly shocked Americans still clung to their guns and their Constitutional rights after the Newtown tragedy. : Poor guy:
Remnick: “Well look at gun control. You had the ruthless slaughter of school children played out in front of the American public in Connecticut. If ever there was a moment emotionally and politically that serious gun control would take hold of Congress it was then. Eighty-three percent of the public was for at least some minimal gun control. The NRA was a mockery in a lot of quarters and who won? The NRA and the right.
“I think this sh.., I know this shocked Obama. He said along this trip that I followed him on that one moment in political history where he really misread what would happen was on gun control. It was a terrible failure. And I think really dispiriting.”
Consider that for a minute. : The president was dispirited because he couldn’t further erode our Constitutional right to bear arms.
I know that isn’t surprising, but it should still be infuriating.
