Credit where it's due

“Well, the Second Amendment in this country is part of our Constitution, and the president of the United States is bound by our Constitution. So I believe in the Second Amendment. It does provide for Americans the right to bear arms for their protection, for their safety, for hunting, for a wide range of uses."  (emphasis ours)

President Barack Obama, March 3, 2011.

Good to know that that President agrees with the great majority of law-abiding Americans on this issue and not with fringe anti-gun groups such as the Brady Campaign and the Violence Policy Center, which ironically expended enormous amounts of effort and money to get him elected.

What must those organizations think of their golden boy now?  Probably in the same way that the rest of the core supporters (gays, anti-war activists, illegal-immigration advocates, those desiring single-payer health care, racial minorities, etc.) Dear Leader has so cavalierly thrown under the bus lo these last two years rate him, we'd venture to guess.

I think you'll be surprised at the caveats that he is willing to include. I don't hear him speaking in support of shall-issue CCW for Illinois.

I'm shocked, shocked to see that the President is a politician. :)

Actually, aside from your accurate predictions that he would not honor those many campaign promises to the Left... it has been comforting to me to see that he is a sane and rational politician. It's better than an ideologue.

Now America can finally get off the hero worship (not all Obama's fault) and get down to doing business. And of course, I agree with Charles Krauthammer that we should not forget in the next election cycle, if reelected, he will swing back to the Left. So for freedom's sake, though I am no fan of the Republicans... we need to make sure the Senate swings a bit more (like over 50%) to the Right.

I think I'll look at his Supreme Court nominees more than his words to figure out what he really thinks about this, gracious host!
