Yesterday, at the very same time the President was displaying his dog and pony show using children as political props, his administration was criticizing the National Rifle Association for pointing out the obvious hypocrisy of the President's children being protected by armed guards while he opposes the same for the common people's children. It was truly a spectacular display of the dishonesty by the Left, who have created a crisis out of the Sandy Hook massacre for the purpose of restricting the freedoms of law-abiding citizens. The facts don't support massive new Federal gun regulations. Gun violence has actually decreased dramatically in the U.S. over the last two decades, but the Left never lets the truth stand in the way of imposing their will on a free people.
It seems more than a little bit ironic that the President and his party are more concerned with taking guns out of the hands of law-abiding American citizens, than they are with Lybian terrorists transporting arms over the border to Mali. This west African nation was a democratic Muslim country, but is now being turned into a training facility for Al Queda and other terrorist groups. Some experts say that this formerly peaceful nation could become a launching site for terrorist strikes on par with the one that killed 3000 innocent Americans on September 11, 2001. But this administration has a history of arming bad guys, as they did with the Fast and Furious program which lead to the deaths of hundreds of innocent Mexicans and two U.S. border agents. The President's gang is also responsible for the arming of the Lybian terrorists who killed Ambassador Stevens and three other brave Americans in Benghazi.
Besides the obvious indecency the President showed using children as props who supposedly wrote him letters begging for gun control after the Sandy Hook massacre, there was a real hypocrisy in his statements. In particular, I found the President's statement about how we are judged as a society by how well we protect our children, especially distasteful. This statement is ironic coming from a man who supported infanticide when he was in the Illinois legislature and even now has no problem with the murder of 3000 children a day in this country by means of abortion. But let one evil man kill 20 children in a school, and the President is all the sudden concerned with the safety of our children and is willing to restrict the God-given right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. If the President was really concerned about our children, he wouldn't be mortgaging their future to pay for his out-of-control spending.
So I ask. What is the crisis? Is it a gun violence problem that has no substantive facts to support it. Or is the real crisis the looming debt bomb created by the unsustainable spending by this administration? Or is it a nuclear-armed Iran that the President has all but ignored? Or is the longest sustained period of high unemployment in our nation's history the real crisis? Or is the crisis the rising cost and lower availability of health care caused by the President's massive boondoggle health care plan? Or could the real crisis be the record number of people living in poverty as a result of this President's policies? The real crisis is that we have a President who sees no political benefit to solving the aforementioned real problems and sees the Constitution of this great country as the only crisis.
