    •  oh I think he will go down in history as great (0+ / 0-)

      in light of what he has had to do to get anything done. like having one arm and one leg behind his back.

      not offering any of this as an excuse but I have heard O himself say his is not perfect.

      there was an assault weapon ban in place. no political will to renew in '04 and man people have died because of that. ban renewed, those children would be alive.

      I keep reading people saying "only 2% of deaths due to gun violence is from assault weapons" as if 2% is acceptable. the irony of that statement focuses on the fact that 98% of gun deaths are from handguns which reinforces handguns as a huge problem that something needs to be done about.

      mittens=edsel. no matter how much money is spent to promote it, if the product sucks, no one will buy it.
