Obama displays his trademark hypocrisy as he talks about banning Americans from owning firearms

Last month, during a TV interview, former First Lady Michelle Obama attacked the Second Amendment and declared that American citizens having “unfettered access to firearms” is “not a good thing.”

This month, it was her husband Barack Obama’s turn to attack the same constitutional right.

Obama suggested that the U.S. should follow in Australia’s footsteps to combat mass shootings.  “You know, in Australia, they had one mass shooting 50 years ago, and they said, ‘No, we’re not doing that anymore,'” Obama told CBS’s Nate Burleson.

“That is normally how you would expect society to respond when your children are at risk. We are unique among advanced, developed nations in tolerating, on a routine basis, gun violence in the form of shootings, mass shootings, suicides.”

Obama appears to be using the very ploy that he applied when as president he presided over any catastrophe.  Instead of accepting any blame and responsibility or issuing an apology, he would address the issue as if he were a bystander or a commentator. He would join the criticism of the failure, without calling it a failure and hence shirk all responsibility. He would often project an undercurrent of righteous anger and disappointment, perhaps muster some tears. It was a performance.

Obama knew his myriad media lapdogs would cover it as an act of sincerity and amidst all the slobbering, his actual failure owing to his misgovernance would never be addressed.

Obama did nothing about the gun issues during his 8 years as president, yet now he is pontificating.
