Thin Skin

665.) We all know how thin skinned President Obama is. He is doesn’t handle critisim very well. When met with a tough question he either chooses to belittle the person who asked it, behind their back of course, or to change the subject, ignore what the question was about, and go off on an tangent.  Well we had a great example of the thin skinned President Obama when he gave a press conference calling for more gun control.

President Obama announced a special task force to look into “real reforms” to reduce gun control. A reporter from that radical right wing news organization ABC, a man by the name of Jake Tapper asked President Obama “This is not the first issue, the first incident of horrific gun violence of your four years.Where have you been?” 

President Obama responded in traditional form, he dodged it and then went back to bragging about his failed record. “Here’s where I’ve been Jake. I’ve been president of the United States dealing with the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, an auto industry on the verge of collapse, two wars, I don’t think I’ve been on vacation. I think all of us have to do some reflection on how we prioritize what we do here in Washington.”

This brings up a good point, why has he not called for gun control measures after other mass shootings? Five of the top 12 worst shootings.Why didn’t he call for real reforms after Congress Woman Giffords was shot? Why didn’t he call for real reforms after the Binghamton Immigration Center Shooting. Why didn’t he call for real reforms after the shooting in Geneva County in 2009 that left 10 people dead. Why didn’t he call for real reforms after the Portland Mall Shooting? What about the shooting in the Sikh Temple that left six dead?

There have been many shootings in his 1,425 days in office that President Obama could have used as a starting point to work on “real reforms” to end gun violence. The problem with using them as a starting point to work on “real reforms” is that all of those past attacks took place during his five year presidential campaign.  In the attacks listed above 56 people died, their deaths were not worthy of discussing real reforms, because they could hurt President Obama politically.   He remained all but silent during his first term about gun control, the question is why? The reason is that there are many people out there who own guns, who understand that guns are important to the safety of American Citizens, and that do not want the government to take more from them then they already have. Bascially President Obama didn’t feel that the death of 56 people was worth losing a political race.  However, now that he has been re-elected he is free to exploit any tragedy, regaurdless of how it makes him look to the public. As I said, President Obama is a radical left wing progressive, he has kept the majority of his radical views well hidden in the first four years of his term, but now that he is not up for re-election he is free to be as radical as he wants.

So sense President Obama won’t answer Mr. Tapper’s question, I will. President Obama did nothing after any of the mass shootings in his first term because it was not convenient for him. His job was more important than doing something to stem gun violence. I truely beleive he did not ban guns for much the same reason he didn’t raise taxes. He knows that both of these actions would only do harm to the nation, and as such hurt his chances of being re-elected. He did nothing after the previous attacks because he knew that gun control would not help, and he  is only pushing for it now because he doesn’t think the people should have the right to defend themselves. Why else would he have ignored the violence before?

  1. You say “He is doesn’t handle critisim very well. When met with a tough question he either chooses to belittle the person who asked it, behind their back of course, or to change the subject, ignore what the question was about, and go off on an tangent.”Then to support this assertion give an example of him doing none of those things.Whatever dude.  I don’t get why you feel the need to hate the president, but my experience tells me there’s some pain or void in you that that hatred fills that has nothing to do with the president.  If you can look inside yourself and try to understand where that need to hate someone else (presumably to feel better about yourself) comes from and try to heal that hurt, that would be a good thing.

  2. You are right, he did nothing. Taking away our second Amendment rights is not the way to handle crisis, a good way to start more. This is just him tying the hands of the American people, one step at a time.

  3. I’m glad we have you on our side when it comes to gun control.

  4. @Celestial_Teapot – There are some people who want to take away the rights altogether. I am sure that you have seen the articles. It is the same with those who are pushing towards severe limitations, when you make something so impossible to qualify it is in essence taking it away. I agree some regulation should be in place, but to take away the rights we have been given as citizens is wrong. 

  5. @PrincessVictoria_2004 – ” I am sure that you have seen the articles. It is the same with those who are pushing towards severe limitations, when you make something so impossible to qualify it is in essence taking it away.”Can you give specific examples?

  6. @PrincessVictoria_2004 – I am fairly well read up on the issue, and as far as I’m aware, you’re incorrect. I understand there have been studies and analysis I’ve msised. The reply was your opportunity to relay the basis for your claims. But from how this dialouge has proceeded it’s clear to me that you’re probably full of shit– making claims you were unable to or too stupid to back up yourself.

  7. @Celestial_Teapot – If you are so read up on it, why would you find offense? If you truly have read the articles on yahoo, I shouldnt have to do the research for you. Doesnt make sense to me to claim that I am full of shit, I just dont have time to respond to your questions only to have you try and argue the issue. I really dont care what you think.

  8. @PrincessVictoria_2004 – There is a large number of bullshit site or accurate newsreportings that you may have misundersthood. *I* don’t know exactly what *you* had in mind when you typed your comment.
