President Obama Recently Shed Crocodile Tears for Gun Control, but What About ……?
President Obama pulled a Speaker Boehner the other day. He was tearing up, over gun control. The tears were flowing. He was emotional. He feels the need for gun control. Where were the tears for Ambassador Stevens when he and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi? The President was AWOL on that one. Where were the tears when Major Nidal Hasan Murdered 13 and wounded 30 at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009? That was simply a case of workplace violence. Where were the tears when James Foley was beheaded by ISIS on August 19, 2014? President Obama rushed out of a press conference to play golf on Martha’s Vineyard. Where were the tears for the victims of the botched ATF gun-walking Operation Fast and Furious? Yes, where were the tears for the murdered border patrol officer, Brian Terry? Just the sounds of silence; the Justice Department stonewalled the documents. Where were the tears earlier today on the failed assassination attempt in the name of Islam on Philadelphia Police Officer Jesse Hartnett? The White House knew nothing about it. Where were the tears for the 27 deaths and hundreds left homeless last week by the Mississippi River floods? The President has a history of avoiding natural disasters unless he can use it for votes in a reelection campaign (Hurricane Sandy). Where are the tears for the innocent victims of the violence in Chicago? He never mentions the black on black violence. Where are his tears for the victims of the knife attacks in Israel? The same passivity as with the Iranian students who protested the stolen Presidential election in Iran in 2009. Where are the tears for the tens of thousands of coal miners losing their jobs and the companies going bankrupt in his ongoing War on Coal? That’s incidental collateral damage.
