The White House and Media Showcase Children to Explain Obama’s Executive Orders

As was expected, President Obama used the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut to pay back anti-second-amendment lobbyists and activists today by signing 23 executive orders to curtail the second amendment.

This involves creating new positions which means we have to spend more money.  In addition, the president also supports a ban on assault weapons and mandatory background checks on all gun sales.

The Chicago Tribune calls it the "biggest U.S. gun-control push in decades."

Of course, the President showcased children today as reason enough to stomp all over the second amendment with passive aggressive arrogance.  Further, the Associated Press has rushed in to aid this shameless display of using a tragedy for political gain by releasing letters written to the president by children

One letter in particular came from a young girl named Julia.  As the article explains:

Julia, who lives in the District of Columbia and dotted the "I" in her name with a heart, wrote that she has four brothers and sisters and "I know I would not be able to bear the thought of losing any of them." She closed her letter by acknowledging that Obama can’t make all the changes people want by on his own.

"I know that laws have to be passed by Congress but I beg you to try very hard to make guns not allowed. Not just for me, but for the whole United States," Julia wrote, signing the letter with "my love and regrets."

From the stage, Obama responded: "Julia, I will try very hard."

Let’s be clear.  Everyone in America understands that Julia wants a safe country.  That’s what we all want.  But the current culture of corruption in Washington D.C. which remains controlled by special-interest groups like the anti-gun folks is responsible for the backdrop which would lead Julia to believe that guns are the problem.  What Julia probably doesn’t realize is that assault weapons bans have already been put in place in the city of Chicago.  Further, the same ban exists in Connecticut where the shooting occurred.

None of this blatant attempt to reward anti-gun groups while becoming a thorn in the side to decent taxpayers and law-abiding citizens will reduce the violence since the same policies already exist where these tragedies have taken place as well as cities like Chicago where gun violence and deaths continue to rise year after year.

They’re called "children" for a reason.

The same child could just as easily ask their parents for a large allowance every week and expect it without earning it.  This is why they’re called "children" and why adults are needed to explain reason.  They simply don’t understand that taking extreme measures which blatantly seek to undermine our Constitution only makes matters more complex and only accentuates the problems they they think they are trying to correct.

Today, instead of being the nation’s adult, the President along with his allies exercised the same crass judgment we’d expect out of children.  They only care about their agendas and to hell with liberty, fairness, and the U.S. Constitution.

    If/when another Newtown happens, does this administration again scapegoat the NRA or is it now accountable for further deaths on its watch?

  • daisy_mae

    BO is a user of people from the elderly, to our military, to our precious children.  A lesson I learned some time back that I try to hold tight to is that people are to be loved, things are to be used.  This unprincipled activity of his is going to come back at him.  I don’t know when or how but it will.

  • Gary

    If someone as good as Sarah Palin is not good enough for the GOP, then none of us are.  We’re like the battered wife who wanis to believe the jerk will change.  They just get worse and see no reason to change.  Time to leave this disaster and let them split the idiot vote with the Marxist-Leninists.  We began winning in ’08 til Senator NDAA lost the election for Sarah Palin.  And why would we want to associate with such corruption?  Reform is the last thing they want.

    Julia….Julia….where have I heard that name before????

    • Gary

      You must be thhiking of Julius Caesar’s beloved Aunt Julia. who married  rich Gaius Marius and saved the noble Julii clan from poverty.

  • colint

    You taxpayers paid for these children and their parents to be flown to DC from where ever and put up at a hotel, dined and entertained just so they could be in a photograph with Obama. I doubt if it cost more than $200,000 out of the Social Security trust fund. For the sake of the children Obama would like all over 65 to pass on as funds will be needed for for lifetime protection of BO, MO and his family.

    • socon

       Obama only cares for children after they’re born.

    One of Obama’s proposals:  Ordering tougher penalties for people who lie on background checks and requiring federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

    Right.  Why not give the feds a list of all the gun owners in the nation?  /sarc

    ……..and the children sang….."Barack Hussein Obama, hmmmm…..hmmm….hmmm"!

  • IndieDogg

    Republicans, are you out there? Somewhere? Figuring out how to give the Imperial President a debt ceiling deal only a bankruptcy court could love? Working on your next dive in the ring?

    Your chosen candidate to defeat this megalomaniac told us all Barack Obama "seemed like a nice guy." That was your strategy to defeat him? A nice guy in over his head?

    This man has one God, and that is himself. He has one Constitution and that is whatever is on his list for X-mas. He will say anything, do anything, wrap himself in the flag, surround himself with children, it doesn’t matter. Nothing is off limits because…. pay attention…. he has no moral bottom line. Anything is game so long as it serves his regal needs.

    Why? I mean why do supposed political "experts" in the feckless "opposition" continually underestimate this man’s ruthlessness and overestimate his character. He has no character.

    He is a conniving, scheming, ruthless operative of the worst kind. He has no moral compass. His compass points only toward himself.

    I want to scream like Mark Levin. The NRA is the only group that seems inclined to take this narcissist on, on his own terms. And a few brave souls who are drowned out by the sounds coming from Washington of smacking lips on the President’s backside.

    Barack Hussein Obama using children as props to push his gun control agenda reminds me of Adolph Hitler being surrounded by adoring children.

    I haven’t read all the threads here, but I plan to do so.  So I don’t know if anyone caught the symbolism I believe Obama was trying to portray at this Press Conference.  Listening to Obama read what small children had to say about his DEMANDS on the rest of America had me realize that this is how Obama sees the America that doesn’t agree with him.  He is such a megalomaniac that he believes that he was using children behind him to talk to children (those who believe in the 2nd Amendment) in front of him. He is telling the majority of Americans you are just too stupid to understand that I am always right. The entire Conference was like watching a juvenile getting even with the adults because he had the microphone.   What does the rest of the world think of this JERK!
