The two-faced hypocrisy of this man is stunning.
President Obama warned Republicans on Monday against failing to raise the debt ceiling, saying the move would withhold money from American troops and Social Security recipients.
‘They will not collect ransom in exchange for not crashing the American economy,’ Obama said of House Republicans, many of whom have vowed to delay raising the debt ceiling until Obama commits to steep spending cuts.
During his press conference today, President Obama signaled that gun organizations such as the National Rifle Association were “ginning up fear” to sell more guns.
“I think that we’ve seen for some time now that those who oppose any common sense gun control or gun safety measures have a pretty effective way of ginning up fear on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government is about to take all your guns away,” Obama asserted, without directly mentioning the National Rifle Association. “There’s probably an economic element to that — it obviously is good for business.”
All the does is gin up fear. All day, every day, every election cycle. A non-stop climate of fear. And he’s got the balls to accuse the NRA of ginning up fear himself. Unreal. Meanwhile, fo a guy allegedly concerned about the debt ceiling, who does he continue to break the law by refusing to submit a budget?
