On the day he held a campaign lovefest using the parents of dead Newtown children as human props, the president amazingly has the balls to accuse those who support the Second Amendment of using so-called political stunts in order to stave off the anti-gun onslaught. One thing this tool doesn’t lack is shame.
The White House lashed out Monday at Republican lawmakers threatening to filibuster gun control legislation in the Senate, accusing them of trying to pull “political stunts” and “hide” behind procedural maneuvers — as support for the filibuster continued to grow.
President Obama criticized the proposed filibuster during a campaign-style event at the University of Hartford in Connecticut about 45 miles from the elementary school where 20 first-graders were shot and killed in December.
“Some back in Washington are already floating the idea that they might use political stunts,” said Obama, who was introduced by Nicole Hockley, whose son, Dylan, was one of the victims. “They’re not just saying they’ll vote ‘no’ on ideas that almost all Americans support. They’re saying they won’t allow any votes on them at all.”
Many in the crowd responded by chanting: “We want a vote.”
The irony escapes him. Meanwhile, not every Newtown parent allows themselves to be used as proprs for Obama’s political stunts.
