This is unacceptable.
Have we not learned anything from the attempted assassination of Gabrielle Giffords?
We all know that the reason Giffords was shot was that the Tea Party defends the Second Amendment and Sarah Palin produced a map of targeted House seats with actual targets on it. Such incivility spurred on the deranged assassin, who otherwise would have been serving tea to little old ladies at the diner.
And now, it appears, Obama during his speech in Kansas today is going to call for everyone to get “a fair shot!” OMG! What are they all going to be shooting at?? Take cover!
From the White House pool report of an Air Force One briefing today by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney:
Looking ahead to the Obama (speech) he again used the terms “fair shake” and “fair shot” to describe the president’s goals for the middle class. “Everyone gets a fair shake and a fair shot,” he said. Of the wealthy – the top target of TR’s speech – Carney said, “Too few do too well.”
I can’t believe this is happening. Targets? Shots? Shaking people to death?
Let’s get the outrage machine cranking!
