I was reading about Obama’s new gun grabbing task force when this last little tidbit, tucked away in the back of the article, leaped off the page at me.
“Obama said his task force’s proposals would make up part of his State of the Union address, and he expressed hope that the searing images from last week’s shooting in Connecticut would last in the public conscious and help advance his eventual proposals.
“I would hope that our memories aren’t so short that what we saw in Newtown isn’t lingering with us — that we don’t remain passionate about it, only a month later,” he said.” NBC “news”
Clearly he is suggesting that the media keep the images of those little victims in the public eye till he gets what he wants, gun control legislation. A tacit confession that he is using the dead kids to grab guns on behalf of people like billionaire Mayor for Life Michael Bloomberg.
“New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I), a leading advocate for gun-control legislation, said that he was “very encouraged” by Obama’s remarks and that the Biden task force must move quickly.” Washington Post
Yeah, he wants them to hurry up before the country falls to a third world status and people have to start working for 35 cents an hour like our brothers south of the border. Not a good thing to have a bunch of pissed off and armed slaves running around while you primp and preen in your $20,000 suits.
You can bet your bottom dollar that Bloomberg will be on that task force. Other leading gun grabbers are already lining up at the White House.
“On Tuesday, Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s senior adviser, met with gun-control advocates in the Roosevelt Room of the White House to reaffirm the president’s commitment to taking action on gun violence.” Washington Post
