MoDo:

President Obama has watched the blood-dimmed tide drowning the ceremony of innocence, as Yeats wrote, and he has learned how to emotionally connect with Americans in searing moments, as he did from the White House late Friday night after the second bombing suspect was apprehended in Boston.

Unfortunately, he still has not learned how to govern.

How is it that the president won the argument on gun safety with the public and lost the vote in the Senate? It’s because he doesn’t know how to work the system. And it’s clear now that he doesn’t want to learn, or to even hire some clever people who can tell him how to do it or do it for him.

It’s unbelievable that with 90 percent of Americans on his side, he could get only 54 votes in the Senate. It was a glaring example of his weakness in using leverage to get what he wants. No one on Capitol Hill is scared of him.

Even House Republicans who had no intention of voting for the gun bill marveled privately that the president could not muster 60 votes in a Senate that his party controls.

President Obama thinks he can use emotion to bring pressure on Congress. But that’s not how adults with power respond to things. He chooses not to get down in the weeds and pretend he values the stroking and other little things that matter to lawmakers.

After the Newtown massacre, he and his aides hashed it out and decided he would look cold and unsympathetic if he didn’t push for some new regulations. To thunderous applause at the State of the Union, the president said, “The families of Newtown deserve a vote.” Then, as usual, he took his foot off the gas, lost momentum and confided his pessimism to journalists.


So much wrong, where do I start?

Barack Obama could not connect with people if he had a zillion miles of fiber optic cable and we all had high speed USB ports on the backs of our heads. He’s a barely adequate speech reader under the best of circumstances and a stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable failure without a teleprompter. In order to connect emotionally with other people you need empathy but Obama cares about no one but himself.

When did Obama win “the argument on gun safety with the public”? He took a vague position on gun control that some people already agreed with but many others do not. Is there any evidence that anything Obama said or did budged public opinion even one percent?

Where did MoDo come up with that 90% statistic? Her ass or Obama’s? I’m sure that you could present people with some vague generality like “crazy people shouldn’t own guns” and get a really high level of support for that position. But that’s not the same as getting 90% support for a particular piece of legislation.

I will have to concede that Modo is right about one thing – Obama still hasn’t learned to govern. I guess even a retarded squirrel finds a nut sometimes.

As usual, I want to close this post about something MoDo wrote by pointing out that she is well paid to publish mindless drivel. I guess she is a role model for some young women because Meghan McCain seems to be following in her footsteps.

Meanwhile, my new favorite show premieres tonight on CMT:

    Most people I know are standing up for their constitutional right to self defense. Whether or not they including me have ever had a gun or used a gun believe in the right to own a gun. The saddest thing about this whole gun control thing is that the lack of trust in today’s US government is so prevalent that a background check bill was not trusted.

      My feeling is that all the post-9/11 laws and drones make citizens trust their government less. I also have faith that most people are repulsed when politicians use murdered children for political gain.

    MYIQ would love to hear your opinion on this. should he or should he not testify?

    • myiq2xu says:

      They need to put somebody up there to refute or explain the evidence presented by the prosecutor and juries like to hear the defendant deny the charges. But if he testifies the prosecution gets to cross-examine him.

      At this point it can’t hurt. They can only hang him once.

        Maybe the PP CEO can be a character witness.
        http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/04/21/Planned-ParentHood-Kept-Silent-About-Gosnell-Butchery/

        This week, Planned Parenthood Southeast Pennsylvania president and CEO Dayle Steinberg, speaking at a fundraiser, no less, admitted that she knew what was going on at Gosnell’s butcher shop. She and her organization did not report it to state health officials or anyone else who could have stepped in.
        So what was the abortion organization’s response? Try this: Steinberg said they left it up to the traumatized women themselves to report the horror: “We would always encourage them to report it to the Department of Health,” she said.

    USA faces terrorists, explosions, baby-flushing abortionists, negative job growth, but Obama prioritizes gun control & immigration.

    • nerdle says:

      Whatever little support the gun control issue had, I think has been seriously diminished in light of the Boston bombing and the actions of the terrorists. If anything, it makes people want a gun.

    • elliesmom says:

      If Obama made terrorism, “safe, legal, and rare” standards for abortion, and putting American back to work his priorities and then failed, a lot of people who think he’s wonderful might reassess that, but if he fails at passing tepid gun controls laws and doesn’t get what he wants for immigration reform, a lot of people think that’s a good thing, and most of the rest of the people don’t give a damn.

    During the SFGiants pregame they had some Little Leaguers asking the pros for advice. One kid asked “My dad is a Dodger fan. What can I do about it?”

    LOL from Sooper Mexican

  9. DeniseVB says:

    90% support keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and mentally unbalanced, that includes my weapon owning husband and the rest of the NRA. If Obama has to lie about his agenda, then there’s something wrong with his agenda. Right? That’s what MoDo should have addressed.

  10. piper says:

    I read somewhere (not going to look for link) that the 90% came from a Joe Scarborough poll with democrats oversampled.

  11. yttik says:

    90% of Americans believe that gun control means using both hands.

    I’m back. So did anything happy this week? What did I miss?

    OMG, Guntucky. I’m totally watching that.

    (((Applause))) Thank you for that – a nice chuckle on a Sunday night.
