OBAMA'S ANGER -- SENATE VOTE AGAINST BACKGROUND CHECKS "SHAMEFUL"
NOTE TO PRESIDENT OBAMA
Mr. President, the Senate vote against background
checks today was not "shameful" as you assert. However, your performance and
that of your colleagues are utterly shameful.
Background checks per se are not wrong. What is wrong is the approach
you and your supporters take to solving problems. It is high time, already years
late, that you, who claim to be leaders and intelligent people, stop
designing prejudicial "solutions" (that aren't) and then attempt to fit the
solution to the problem. And worse, you spend time and taxpayer funds advertising
and touring the country to deceptively convince voters that you are taking care
of the problem -- and them.
Surely what you do is not analytical problem
solving. Worse is your flagrant disregard for propriety and your disrespect for
all Americans when you incite your acolytes, most of whom know only what you
tell them, truthful or not, to demonstrate for you. You use them to abuse all of
us. That Mr. Obama, is despicable and in no way does it demonstrate leadership.
"Communirty Organizer, maybe, but in no way presidential. But sir, that's your
skill set. Sad, but true!
