You know what it comes down to, Barry-0? People don’t trust you. Simple as that. Oh … certainly you do have your supporters. It’s not that NOBODY trusts you .... just most productive Americans above the median IQ. The moochers, leaches and parasites still trust you … they trust you to keep forking over the government checks. When the checks stop coming … when they find that a change of regimes in Washington will necessitate their actually becoming marginally productive again … their fealty to their long-gone here, the great and powerful 0bama, will fade to resentment and scorn.
Your gun control ploy failed, didn’t it? And didn’t you look like the petulant little boy at that presser yesterday afternoon. Even one of your greatest protectors, The Washington Post, said that there was not one portion of this bill; not one clause; not one section; that would have prevented the shootings in Newtown. No matter. Most people don’t read the Washington Post, and whoever wrote that blasphemy was going to be ignored by the rest of the media sycophants who hang on their Dear Ruler’s every word. You are, after all, sort of a God, right? That’s what Newsweek said! (By the way, Newsweek is toast now. Their sort-of God couldn’t save them? For shame, Barry!)
But the question wasn’t really whether or not your gun control measures would work, was it? The point was that you wanted to take an incremental step toward your ultimate goal, right? You remember, don’t you? You told a fellow professor at that Chicago law school that you didn’t believe that people should be allowed to own guns. His name was John Lott. Even if you’ve conveniently forgotten that moment, Professor Lott hasn’t. Pesky things, those memories. Anyway … you knew that the troublesome Second Amendment was going to be problematic, so take anything you can get, right?
Yesterday you called the opponents of your gun control measures “liars.” Lies? What lies? You mean like that lie you’ve been telling for years about the “gun show loophole?” There really wasn’t any such loophole, was there? The same laws applied to selling a gun at a gun show that applied anywhere else. People soon figured that out, knew that you had been lying to them, and the distrust grew.
Then people started wondering about the timing of your push for gun control. There was a shooting in Aurora, Colorado last year. Remember? Some nut case walked into a movie theater dressed as the Joker and started shooting. Ahhh! But that was last July! You were campaigning for re-election, so other than making a visit to Colorado, you were pretty quiet about gun control, weren’t you? And there was that lunatic who shot Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in early 2011. Again, that was in your first term. Re-election was not assured by any measure, so again you had to forego the massive push for gun control.
But then came Newtown, Connecticut. You had already secured a second term, so the coast was clear! In fact, you had been waiting for an incident just like this, right? Start the gun control campaign! Go after the bitter clingers and grind them into the complacent, frightened, unarmed Americans. All part of your “fundamental transformation of the United States of America,” right Barry?
