The president & co. managed to do many offensive things yesterday. It was a red letter day.
First, Obama said in Mexico, “And we also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States. (Applause.) I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms, and as President I swore an oath to uphold that right and I always will. But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do. (Applause.) So we’ll keep increasing the pressure on gun traffickers who bring illegal guns into Mexico. We’ll keep putting these criminals where they belong — behind bars.”
Obama never misses an opportunity to apologize for Americans’ rights in another country. Mr. O, what about that little thing called Fast and Furious your administration did that ended up in the deaths of 300 Mexicans and two Americans? Sorry Libs, it wasn’t a Bush thing it was an Obama thing.
Michelle Obama continued the anti gun thing with her own tirade. The Hill reported:
First lady Michelle Obama said that students at a high school just five miles from her family’s Chicago home told her that “every day they wake up and wonder whether they’re going to make it out of school alive.”
In an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning” that will air this weekend, the first lady said that when she met students after delivering a speech last month on gun violence, she was struck by the extent to which fear dominated the children’s everyday lives.
“I mean, every single kid worries about their own death, or the death of someone, every single day,” Obama said.
The first lady traveled to her hometown to advocate for new gun controls ahead of the Senate’s vote last month on a bill that would expand background checks on gun purchases. The vote fell five senators short of the 60 needed.
Nothing like pure emotionalism and fear. They’re staples in the Democrat repertoire.
From the no good deed goes unpunished in Obama’s world department, the brave Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA to capture Osama Bin Laden is still rotting in jail. Two year’s after the terrorist’s death Dr. Shakil Afridi has been denied access to any legal help or to his family. He started a hunger strike April 25 and is still on it.
Can anyone even imagine such a thing occurring under President Bush?
Oh, and about that jobs number the liberal media is so excited about. From the Reagan coalition comes this info:
But here is what they aren’t telling you. There is a line in the jobs report that describes the “Aggregate Weekly Hours” and we have learned that the net hours worked by each worker dropped. That effectively comes out to be 500,000 net jobs lost if measured in total hours worked.
Here is what I think happened. To get from under having to abide by Obamacare, employers slashed hours and then were forced to hire more workers to make up the slack.
Because there is still a net loss of hours worked, the economy continues to get sicker.
That probably is more in line with what the everyday American is experiencing.
