For at least four years, we’ve been told that Barack Hussein Obama (Praise be his name) is going to “pivot” back to the economy, and we’re hearing some more of the same drivel in the lead up to tonight’s State of the Union speech. Don’t count on it. I’m expecting the Inaugural address on steroids, something along the lines of FDR’s “Four Freedoms” speech, or as the Washington Times calls it “a conservative’s nightmare come true.”
The number one item on the list for this bunch, who despise the Constitution’s brilliant system of separation of powers and limited government, is doing something about that annoying 2nd Amendment. So, tonight we’ll see several mascots, intended to help the Obamabot avoid letting the Sandy Hook crisis go to waste. From Politico:
The White House and Democratic lawmakers have invited more than 30 shooting victims or their surviving family members and friends to attend Obama’s speech, including several people tied to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), severely wounded in a Jan. 2011 shooting, will be there. And first lady Michelle Obama will be accompanied by the parents of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old Chicago teenager shot to death last month, shortly after she took part in the inaugural parade.
Politico also reports in this story that
[t]he Democrats will also hold a press conference Tuesday with Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the organization, backed by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg that is pouring tens of millions of dollars into the political struggle over gun control.
Also Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), a close Obama ally, chaired a subcommittee hearing in the Judiciary Committee on reducing gun violence while “respecting the Second Amendment,” focusing on current gun trafficking laws and proposals to strengthen them.
Now we can all relax, knowing that Dick “Eddie Haskell” Durbin is protecting the 2nd Amendment.
Meanwhile, the Left is becoming even more unhinged than usual over the decision by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) to bring Ted Nugent to this pointless campaign speech. How dare he do that! Doesn’t he understand that this event is along the lines of the sort of pageants that are telecast on North Korean TV, designed to showcase the brilliant eloquence of the Dear Reader and make us grateful for his benevolence toward us, his subjects?
