Obama lost twice recently. He lost the gun control bill and before that he lost in the sequester fight. This is a man not used to losing. For some reason, he’s been a very blessed man at getting every thing he’s ever wanted despite having no discernible talent, other than public speaking, that I know of. He’s never had a real job or ran a business. His political career prior to presidenting consisted of voting “present”. He won Obmacare even though no one liked it. He won various budget and tax increases even though no one seemed to like it. And he beat republicans like they owe him money, a lot. But he kept winning.
But he lost recently. And substantially. And it shocked and angered him. You can tell by his tone and speeches that this bugs him a lot. Good.
Seems that telling gun folks we need to find common ground and have a dialogue while accusing them of aiding murder was a bit of an oversight.
But, he’ll keep bitterly clinging to his gun control.
