Thank You, Mr. President: Obama Pens Gun Law Op-Ed

By “Pintface” Pete Bogs/BogsBlog

Months after the deadly Tuscon shootings, President Obama has published an op-ed on our nation’s paltry, ineffectual gun laws in an Arizona newspaper. Better late than never – and with Obama eyeing reelection in 2012 and fearful of the NRA, I was honestly expecting never.

Read the piece, and note his use of terms like "common sense," "reasonable" and "sensible." Could it be he read my apocryphal SOTU address on gun violence and laws? I’m happy to have him or anyone plagiarize it.

Thank you, Mr. President. I may yet vote for you in 2012.

how are you old friend? Im looking forward to the speech Obama gives where he reminds all of the people that voted for him that he has essentially extended and expanded almost every aspect of W's admin. from shady banker cabinet members to patriot act to guantanamo and the never ending war. whatever happened to the moral high ground of false war. why arent you guys disgusted?

i dont even care anymore. its all bad now. since i moved to the country i chilled and just try and enjoy all i can before these errand boys crash and burn it.

hope you are well and happy.

Hi dog!

I am disgusted about the Patriot Act and the war, etc. But I have some "wedge" issues to deal with first (DADT, gun control). I am sitting back enjoying the hypocritical comments from the right about healthcare being "government overreach" and a "loss of individual" freedom from the same people who defended Bush's illegal surveillance program. It's not what they do, but WHO does it, apparently.

More later.
