Even before he opens his mouth, we have to say that this is nothing more than a witch hunt and another attempt to attack and undo the Constitution (which he does routinely with all his EO’s IMO).

Ironic that he (supposedly the second time around, out of the view of the public) swore to uphold the Constitution and yet he has no reverence for it.

Calling for a ban on “assault weapons” is rather vague isn’t it? After all, just about every and anything used to kill someone is an assault weapon. . .therefore a gun for shooting, a knife for stabbing, hands for strangling, car for running over/hitting/leaving a child in when it’s hot outside, pillow for smothering, water for drowning, etc. . .should all be classified as “assault weapons”. . .are we going to ban all of those? The case can be made that just about anything can be used to kill someone. When a sick twisted mother put her child in a microwave did the govt call for a ban on microwaves. . .No! When around 2,000 children are murdered everyday by abortions, do we see the govt calling for a ban on abortions, No, this govt sanctions them.

What happened in CT is truly sorrowful but so are all the other ways in which people are killed on a daily basis and yet it’s not the fault of the gun, the knife, the hands, the car, the pillow, the water, the microwave but the fault of the human being who used those items as an assault weapon. . .hold the person accountable, not the implement, IMO.

Inanimate objects don’t kill people. Why is this so difficult for left wingers to fathom? This isn’t about gun control – it’s about ‘control’. Absolute power and control for Obama over his flock of mindless sheep.

Exactly. . .people kill people!!!

And speaking of sheeple. . .Time names BHO person of the year–yuck!!! The zombies out there must all be kvelling!

What are the odds one of the “journalists” will ask him about the latest victim of the Fast and Furious guns his administration illegally bought and sold to Mexican drug gangs? Of course that subject will never be broached because Preezy Revenge owns the press – lock, stock, and barrel.

Hi Kim,

I called Melissa yesterday but her phone rang and rang – voicemail did not pick up. I’ve said all I have to say about opening Christmas presents in front of a bunch of strangers in a public setting. I just can’t do it. Otherwise, I’m good for whatever else you all want to do – lunch, whatever. Just let me know.

Still waiting to hear from you about Victoria.

Love,
Mom

Keith, please delete.

DeniseVB December 19, 2012 at 12:22 pm

LOL girly, are you multitasking on a “smart phone” ? /s

Girly1 December 19, 2012 at 1:24 pm

LOL! If there was ever a time for a ‘delete’ button, this is it! I can’t believe I left this window OPEN! Tis the season to be jolly, but trying to keep up with 2 of my 4 daughters who are arriving and leaving on separate days before Christmas is frustrating, to say the least. It’s just my luck that Keith is probably at the press conference this a.m. and this post is going to be here for a while…I’ll just blame it on Obama, lol!

Otis Driftwood December 19, 2012 at 5:31 pm

you prob made Keith laugh during the Press Conference.. ;-)

Star December 20, 2012 at 10:52 am

No biggie, Girly.

Shofar December 19, 2012 at 1:15 pm

We are all such a family that we oft times forget where we are. The best part of family is that eventually they forgive.

Hope you get to do lunch soon and that Victoria is okay.
Have a great day mom.

Girly1 December 19, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Oh, Shofar, that’s so sweet! Thank you! This is a wonderful extended family here at WHD – wish we could all go to lunch together!

The Newtown massacre has succeeded in doing what Fast and Furious was meant to do for this administration.

CiscoKid December 19, 2012 at 12:12 pm

Roger that.

P. Diddy December 19, 2012 at 12:23 pm

It is no coincidence that the first question after ol’ Jug Ears statement on guns/AWB etc immediately derailed the conversation for the remainder of the “press conference” so far.
What an amazingly gullible nation we have turned into with manipulation by the politicians, press, and mainstream media.

Kelsey December 19, 2012 at 12:25 pm

I wondered why we were talking about taxes instead of guns. I guess that’s what I get for being late.

Kelsey December 19, 2012 at 12:23 pm

“They just don’t want to say yes to me”? Really? Wow. This goes beyond “unPresidential” to flat-out unprofessional.

Florida Girl December 19, 2012 at 12:28 pm

That is what I thought. They I,I,I,I president. He is such a narcissist. I really tried to listen. I wanted to hear what he has to say, but my blood pressure goes thru the roof and I end up screaming at the tv, the computer, etc. The whole, “I understand, but they need to do what I want after the events of the last week”. What??????? Can’t take him.

P. Diddy December 19, 2012 at 12:26 pm

I hope his efficacy on gun control is as effective as his laser like focus on jobs and unemployment.
This man has all the mental capacity of an arrested development precocious 7 year old with a stunning vocabulary. To include stammering, stuttering, and filler words.
