According to a report on MSNBC — and really, who’s more in tune with the gun-grabbing zeitgeist than the number three-ranked cable news network? — Barack Obama will hold a news conference at 11:30a eastern tomorrow to announce his much-anticipated executive orders designed to further curb Americans’ Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Setting expectations as low as humanly possible, White House spokesnoid Josh Earnest told assembled members of the press . . .
“We’re not under the illusion that these actions will prevent every incident of gun violence, but they will (succeed) if they even prevent one.”
And you’ll probably want to swallow your coffee before this one:
“‘Obama’s’ not taking these steps out of politics. He’s taking these steps because he believes we can save some lives.”
If, for some reason, you believe that, remember that a previous president once noted that the nine most frightening words in the English language are, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
