It would be nice if Barack Obama could find it in his heart to display as much outrage over the torture and murder of our ambassador in Benghazi, or the death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent (not to mention hundreds of Mexicans) as a result of Operation Fast and Furious, or even the stomach-turning brutality of the sociopathic abortionist Kermit Gosnell, as he does over the United States Senate’s refusal to pass legislation he favors. But that would be expecting too much. The community organizer in chief doesn’t lose any sleep over dead children, dead border guards, or dead ambassadors. The only thing that gets his knickers in a twist is people who have the gall to stand in the way of his latest power grab.
You can watch video of Barry’s little temper tantrum here, if you think you can stand it. If nothing else, it’s amusing to see Joe Biden look as if he’s about to burst into tears.
Peter Wehner comments:
What Mr. Obama has been attempting to do throughout this gun control debate is to build his case based on a false premise, which is that the laws he’s proposing would have stopped the mass killing in Newtown. The families of the Newtown massacre are being used by the president in an effort to frame the issue this way: If you’re with Obama, you’re on the side of saving innocent children from mass killings– and if you’re against Obama, you have the blood of the children of Newtown on your hands. But it actually does matter if what Obama is proposing would have made any difference when it came to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. And the fact that it would not have is what makes Obama’s gambit so shameful and disturbing. … Mr. Obama’s effort at emotional blackmail has failed, and in bitterly lashing out at those who called him out on his demagoguery, he went some distance toward confirming that he is, in fact, a demagogue.

Once again, it’s not about guns, it’s about control. It always is with these people. Anyone who thinks Barack Obama gives a rat’s rear end about children is several bullets short of a full clip.
