Glenn and Helen interview Bill Haslam

Glenn and Helen sat down to interview Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam. You can see the interview here.

They ask him about his membership in Mayors Against Guns. He says it was probably a mistake to have joined. And that when it started, Bloomberg wasn’t in charge. He does not favor any more gun controls. He even bought his son a shotgun for Christmas.

Now, I’m pretty sure this has been a Bloomberg operation from the beginning. Haslam makes it sound as though there was a petition passed around at a mayoral meeting and a bunch of people signed it, including him. And since then, the focus of the group has changed. After all, what politician isn’t against illegal guns? Little did they know, they meant illegal guns in NYC, which is most of them.

I think Haslam laid out his case pretty well. He thought he signed up for one thing and it turned into another and he’s not real happy about it. He once again distances himself from Bloomberg. I still think he should withdraw from the group since his opponents have already distorted his record based on membership in the group and will likely continue to do so.

And they might mention someone you know. And that that someone was defending Haslam, for once.

    What does he think “Mayors Against GUNS” means exactly?

    It doesn’t say illegal Guns. It says Guns.

    Cry me a river. When you get called to the carpet for being anti-gun, because you actively joined an anti-gun group that’s name clearly says they are anti-gun, claiming ignorance shows you expect voters to be stupid.

    “The group was organized in April (2006) by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and includes 109 cities in 44 states”

    Bloomberg’s been one of the ones in charge since the beginning. Haslam obviously thinks John Q. Public is stupid.

    Is Haslam’s favorite movie “Say anything”?

    You mean MAIG was not started in New York from a grant by the Joyce Foundation… could have sworn it was.

    I must have been mistaken.

    Is he really so stupid that he thinks he can run that BS past everyone and have them believe he didn’t know what Bloomberg and Menino really were pushing?

    I guess you do deserve the politicians you elect.
    Good luck with that.

    Would have more credibility if his son’s gift was a Homeland Security Rifle instead of a shotgun.
