    And I hope I'm wrong and you're right.

    But once again I don't think that excuses the president for passing the buck to the people and claiming that he can't do anything.

    I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

      you fault him for calling for public pressure after we've had 3 days of calls for public pressure on him over a bill never written, a deal never made.  

      Apparently it 's more socially significant to oppose the President than it is to support him in a cause we seem to be in agreement on.  

      Democrats have a big tent and no ability to work toward common goals, Republicans can move mountains with nothing but angry old white guys?   Great way to move the country left, or something.

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      •  So... what, the president doesn't listen? (0+ / 0-)

        At least to his base?

        He completely ignored the public pressure and went with his own decision. The reason it failed was because the Republicans were too stupid to see a gimme when it's staring them in the face.

        Now, he wants us to pressure him MORE, even though there have been non-stop calls for gun control from his base for years?

        It's an excuse to be "Reasonable" with psychopaths.

        •  You missed the part about who to pressure. (0+ / 0-)

          Presidents sign bills into law, or not, they don't write them or vote on them in Congress.  The pressure needs to be on a Congress terrified of the NRA.  They need to be aware of   of inaction from US, fuck the NRA.

          Or punish him for whatthefuckever and maybe a hospital nursery will be the next target.  Temper tantrums on the Left usually result in bad shit for the Left.  I wonder if we'll ever get that.
