Blue Force Gear Quote of the Day: Obama Regrets? He’s Had a Few . . .

“If you ask me where has been the one area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common sense gun safety laws.” President Obama in The Legacy of Barack Obama [via]

    Good riddance. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

    1. avatar Resident CT says:

      Reminds me of the HALO sequence on the Profit of Regret.
      “Dear humanity,
      We regret bein’ alien bastards, we regret comin’ to Earth, and we most definitely regret that the Corps. just blew up our raggedy-ass fleet!”

      1. avatar Mr Bad Example says:

        Well, I don’t care if it’s God’s own anti-son-of-a-bitch machine, or a giant hula hoop, we’re not gonna let ’em have it! What we WILL let ’em have is a belly full of lead, and a pool of their own blood to drown in!

        …AM I RIGHT, MARINES!?”

      Maybe soon to be Ex-prez. Obama can hook up with Ex-Massachusetts Governor. Deval Patrick and cry in each others Beer…Maybe team with Hillary “AOL” Clinton for a Cable TV show on the FOOD network…Call it : “Spirit Cooking with Hillary Clinton, and Friends !” Or maybe “Pizzagate!!!” Or a show on the Travel Channel…called “DNC tours of Epstein Island !!!”

  2. avatar Chip Bennett says:

    Obama haz a sad.

    Dear lame-duck President Obama: I guess you could say: WE WON.

    1. avatar Chadwick says:

      Indeed, himz is sad. The people voted against his gun grabbing granny, but he still thinks he knows best. This is the world’s smallest violin playing the saddest song for the whole marxist movement…

  3. avatar Tim says:

    He regrets not being *more* charismatic, magnanimous & humble.

    Which is 100% accurate, as he has never been any of those things.

  4. avatar Keystone says:

    “I couldn’t strip law abiding citizens of their second amendment rights good enough.”

    Couldn’t be happier that you failed in that endeavor. Now piss off, and enjoy watching your entire 8 year legacy go in the trash can.

  5. avatar jim says:

    He’s right, you know…we don’t have sufficient “common sense gun SAFETY laws.”

    Like one requiring grade school kids to be taught how to avoid getting hurt by a gun before they are taught sexed. Or the other one requiring high school kids to learn to handle and fire guns safely, before they are allowed to take drivers ed. Or the one prohibiting government entities from interfering with people’s right to own and carry weapons, to protect themselves and society itself. Er, maybe we already have one of those. Hard to keep track.

    He’s just wrong about his definition of gun safety.

  6. avatar Chris T from KY says:

    Obama reminds me of the black preachers who the white progressive Margaret Sanger used to help reduce the number of black children being born.
    Her organization Planned Parenthood was founded to control the black population birth numbers.
    Now Obama follows the desires of the white progressive gun controllers.

    But he will have armed security paid for by the government for the rest of his life. Thank god the NRA supplied guns and ammunition to the Deacons For Defense and Justice when black people knew they couldn’t depend of the government for protection in the 1950s and 60s.

  7. avatar Rick says:

    Uhhhhhh, who the fuck keeps asking him questions?

    1. avatar MLee says:

      Why, what he says is important. To who is difficult to imagine.

      1. avatar K Maiden says:

        But, but, but we are loosing our overseer and babysitter. Oh what will we do? Doomed we are. The snowflakes are melting. The safe spaces are on fire.
        Sarcasm of course. However, much truth to many.

  8. avatar Mike says:

    The delusional speech continues: “…no scandals during my administration.” “…no terrorist attacks during my administration.” REALLY??!? We’ve got plenty of safety laws, just negligent enforcement thereof.
    It appears that we could add to his many losses is his memory…

    1. avatar Bob Jones says:

      Barrack Obama is the worst man-made disaster to ever strike the USA.

  9. avatar Mike says:

    And don’t let the doorknob hit ya where the good Lord split ya!

  10. avatar Will says:

    Obama’s legacy is President Donald Trump.

    1. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

      Yep. The loudest most obnoxious critic of BO is now president elect. Let’s hope he’s decent enough to avoid that himself.

  11. avatar Ben says:

    Safety? There are around 500 gun related ‘accidental’ deaths per year. With what other product are there between 300 and 600 MILLION items possessed by the masses that result in such low numbers? The OTHER 33,000 or so deaths that are gun related are INTENTIONAL. I’m pretty sure that gun safety regulations won’t reduce intentional deaths any more than automobile safety makes automobiles less lethal when intentionally used to kill.

    We need CRIME LAWS to be ENFORCED. Period. Gun safety training? Great idea. But get accidental deaths down to zero, and you’d still have around 33,000 gun related intentional deaths…

    1. avatar Richard McGannon says:

      …which is now officially LESS than the number of deaths caused by Heroin overdoses.

  12. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

    ‘….it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we have sufficient common sense constitutional protection of the individual right to keep and bear arms.’

    Fixed that for him.

  13. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    “… the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common sense gun criminal, terrorist, and government jackbooted thug safety laws.” — President Obama

    There, fixed that for you Obama.

  14. avatar Anonymous says:

    There is nothing “safety” about their proposed laws. They had nothing to do with safety. Obamas opinion was shared by Clinton and she wasn’t elected. Maybe the dems should think about altering their party platform.

        Yep. Midterms approach and barry and the bitch are still trying to help the gop get a bigger lead.

  15. avatar tdiinva (now in wisconsin) says:

    You can thank Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and Paul Ryan for frustrating Obama.

    1. avatar Cliff H says:

      They managed to frustrate the hell out of the rest of us, why not include Obama?

      1. avatar tdiinva (now in wisconsin) says:

        If you actually understood the Constitution you would know that without 2/3 majority in both Houses of Congress all they could do is frustrate the President. Supporting and understanding the Constitution goes far beyond the Second Amendment.

        1. avatar Model 31 says:

          Yet somehow they manage delegate their responsibilities to the alphabet agencies, campaign as small gov conservatives and then hide behind Constitutional process by shrugging their shoulders and proclaiming they can’t win, while rubber-stamping whatever budget Obama gives them.

  16. avatar FedUp says:

    Well, I’m glad that Obama didn’t want to take our guns, no, wait, he just said he regretted failing to take our guns, maybe because he thought Hillary would be able to finish that job for him…

    Awe, buck up buckaroo, don’t look so sad, people will give you shit loads of money for just showing up for the rest of your life. Even if you didn’t want to leave you secret service guarded mansion your pension and health plan are still platinum. Your books, that you don’t even have to write yourself, will be best sellers. Your kids will get get to start at lower upper management in corner offices even if they just want to work part time and not do anything they don’t like. You can also let fawning fans come over to tell you how great you are anytime you want.

    1. avatar Mk10108 says:

      Worst yet is when a worthy black man seeks the office, the nation will pause, reflect on Obama’s stewardship and make a mark for another.

  18. avatar Capybara says:

    Dear Mr. President:

    You completely failed in your mission to transform America into a Socialist Paradise as you envisioned. You failed to disarm the American people. You reduced America’s image worldwide into a laughing stock and were repeatedly disrespected by leaders the world over. You ignored and insulted Israel repeatedly, your foreign policy set back America decades. Terrorism and Islamic extremism flourished under your watch, with your help. You instigated race wars between law enforcement and your own community. You are a traitor to your country and should be spending your remaining days rotting in prison instead of living a cozy, insulated existence, surrounded by leftist sycophants. May you burn in hell you arrogant, egotistical commie bastard.

    Smoke and Mirrors from an arrogant piss poor Representative of his culture, mostly shuck and Jive, Made Anti- American by his embittered family who thought the American Dream was lots of Government handouts then found out only Latin illegals were the pampered ones! Between this Butt head and his buddies the Clinton’s they have pretty much destroyed American culture,along with the Smoke and mirrors of gun control to avoid tough problems really effecting our country, health care that is virtually non existence and costs a whole lot more; modern clowns who should be laughed out of office except by a bought and paid for Media protecting them, (Clinton slush fund at work) Good F**king riddance!

  20. avatar NorincoJay says:

    We have more than enough gun owner control laws. Civil disarmament isn’t a policy it’s a mental illness. Gun rights is part of our culture and helps make Americans unique. If people truely want to save lives and reduce violence there are better ways than infringing on the rights of lawful citizens.

  21. avatar Mk10108 says:

    Infringement of the second amendment will continue and gun control will become a reality in democratic controlled states. From the criminalization of succession leading to our civil war, gun control is the last step in submission rob and subjugation of the federal government over the American citizen.

  22. Dear Mr. #NotMyPresident:

    As of this entry, you have 40 days remaining…… that is if if you’re not going to ‘nudge’ something and actually vacate, or attempt to overturn the election result.

    Why is my gut instinct – which has saved my life more than once – telling me that you and your merry band of Totalitarian wannabes are gonna try and ‘nudge’ something as to not vacate, or attempt to overturn the election result ?

    God help our nation if that actually occurs.

  26. avatar former water walker says:

    Yes and without the Hildebeast Bury Soetoro is officially the worst president ever. Undo undo undo…and I echo the sentiment of I hope Trump lives up to at least a bit of the hype.

  27. avatar onezero says:

    To quote Curly Bill from “Tombstone” , “Well… Bye”
    Wish I could type a southern accent.

      I love that scene and it was performed masterfully.
      But yes, as applied to Obama, absolutely!!

    2. avatar Button Gwinnett says:

      I just watched that yesterday. Obama would never say, as Wyatt did, “I want you to know it’s over.”

      And you’re right. You can’t spell what Curly Bill said.

      1. avatar MLee says:

        @Button Gwinnett
        Nope, it can’t be written. It has to be seen and heard to attain that proper dismissive disdain inflection most hold for Obama.

  28. avatar Joe R. says:

    He regrets not first raiding his $ for his prez library in Kenya.


    He’s got a lot more leeway now, after the election.

  29. avatar Joe R. says:

    SAY “THANK YOU” Jimmy Carter, you still suck a_ _, but you share the title of worst president ever with Ohole. Clinton = # 2.

    “the one area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied”

    Stymied? Wasn’t he that little kid in the “Our Gang” and “Little Rascals” comedies?

    …he has regrets?

    Well, big boo-frickity-hoo!

  32. avatar Roymond says:

    His biggest regret should be that he never had the backbone to provide any kind of leadership. He began as a community organizer who expected others to rally around and get things done, and he ended the same way, never having learned that Congress just doesn’t work that way.

  33. avatar tjlarson2k says:

    Yes, we’re not push-overs and would rather fight than roll over and die when attacked.

    I guess that didn’t fit your liberal agenda? So sorry.

  35. avatar BierceAmbrose says:

    Officials in republican governments sometimes forget their devil’s bargain: they may grasp power they do not have themselves, as long as they do not too much oppress the people.

    Many officials never realized this is the bargain they stuck, until it is rescinded. Some not even then.

  36. avatar Badwolf says:

    Common sense. You keep using those words. I don’t think it means what you think it means.

  37. avatar Cisco KId says:

    Don’t gloat or be so smug or ignorant if you do not think that Trump is not going to eventually support some kind of semi-auto ban because your in for a rude surprise. He is from New York and his idea of the Second Amendment is much different than the far rights. Trump was a Democrat for years and he only ran on the Republican Ticket because he could not get on the Democratic ticket. The majority of Congressmen and Senators knew this from the very beginning and this is why the Republicans did everything they could to prevent him from becoming President. I will forecast that in many ways he is and will be more of a Democrat than Hillary ever would have been as she had always been a Centrist and a Wall Street Prostitute.

    I did not agree with Obama’s gun ban agenda but here is what he did do and I post this for the unwashed.

    IF OBAMA HAD LISTENED TO THE REPUBLICANS TODAY GENERAL MOTORS AND CHRYSLER WOULD BE GONE, (The Cheap Ass Republican’s said “let them go under”) THE GREAT RECESSION WOULD STILL BE WITH US, (The Republicans said “Let all the banks fail”) 20 MILLION AMERICANS WOULD STILL BE WITHOUT HEALTH CARE (The Republicans are prostitutes of the Insurance and Drug Companies”) AND 175,000 TROOPS WOULD STILL BE IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN (The Republican War Mongers learned nothing from the Middle East Quagmire and actually caused terrorism against the U.S.). NOW YOU KNOW WHY EDUCATED PEOPE ARE TERRIFIED OF TRUMP AND THE REPUBLICANS.

    HOW OBAMA CHANGED AMERICA (click on the below link) Be warned! If you do you just may become educated.

  38. avatar Cisco KId says:

    And by the way it was the Prostitute Republicans that made Obama care more expensive by deliberately refusing to let him include the “Public Health Option” which would have put the corrupt rip off Insurance companies in competition with the government health option which would have prevented them from raising rates as high as they have been currently doing. Lets face facts History has proven National Health Care has worked for people in Europe and Canada as far back as 1896 under Bismarck in Germany and France in 1949. Is just that the Right Wing penny pinchers would rather save a penny today by not paying a few pennies out of their check every week as they do with Social Security so that in the short and long run they go bankrupt when they need health care because of a serious illness.

    In Germany they interviewed German people about the great controversy over National Health care and they were aghast. They said “How in the world can a country as rich as the United States condemn their people to bankruptcy because they will not give them “paid for health care”, its inhuman and uncivilized”. My response: “We have got too many stingy ignorant Hill Jacks who do know what it is like to live in a civilized nation”.

    1. And by the way it was the Prostitute Republicans that made Obama care more expensive by deliberately refusing to let him include the “Public Health Option” which would have put the corrupt rip off Insurance companies in competition with the government health option which would have prevented them from raising rates as high as they have been currently doing.

      Democrats were the majority in the House and Senate at the time. Republicans were in no poisition to stop Obama.

      1. avatar cisco kid says:

        Your response was totally misleading. There was not one I repeat not one Republican that voted for the original Obama Care bill proving the corrupt bastards were 100 per cent for the crooked Insurance Companies and crooked drug companies. Such behavior is not tolerated in the other industrialized countries of the world.

  39. “If you ask me where has been the one area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common sense gun safety laws.” President Obama in The Legacy o

    I suspect Shaneen Allen and Radley Balko would disagree with him.
