Fake outrage from a fake president.

None of these measures would've stopped Loughner or Lanza from committing their crimes.

Parading victims around in an effort to usurp our 2nd amendment is about as low as it gets.

"I honestly did not know! I may have know years ago, but have since forgotten!"

Really? In this post of yours from 6 days ago I clearly state "I'd appreciate a warning that the link goes to Glenn Beck's The Blaze. The last thing I want to do is give that partisan hack any ad revenue." Which you responded to me with, "@markust: When I hover my pointer over the "clicky" sign? It clearly shows where the link goes."

What?!
A politician was grandstanding?
Why, that's never happened before.

"But it's still optional: it's about "why" he said, not "verbatim" what..."

But how do you even know what he said and in what context when the longest quote is only three words?

I honestly did not know! I may have know years ago, but have since forgotten!

I kept wondering why I'd link something (from The Blaze) and you'd stat complaining about Glen Beck. But you seem to toss his name around like a "fire and brimstone preacher" talking about Satan, so I just figured it was random name-calling...

And that's the truth!

And it's not a report on "the words the PotUS said" but their MEANING! He warns against political stunts... DURING a political stunt! Why is -that- important?
No the original news item isn't linked, I didn't notice that. Usually it is. (Usually, I check for that, missed it this time)

But it's still optional: it's about "why" he said, not "verbatim" what...

"I count 11? 12 words quoted in total."

Man, you are the king of twisting things around. Only one of the quotes in your post is three words long. The rest of the quotes are two or one word long. And there are no links to the source. Yet you just take the parts filled in by the author as what the President said because why? Maybe because he is saying what you want to hear.

@markust: I count 11? 12 words quoted in total... depends if you count the "the" eh? (Clinton joke there). That's at least TWICE as many as the MSM will quote a Repub... accurately anyhow...

It's a report ON the event, not ABOUT the event! An opinion piece on what it means, rather than a travelogue (or transcript) of what was said...

We've had this discussion before...

The Blaze is Glen Beck? Well blow my lips off! Shows how "loyal" I am!

"Other "left wing sites" get posted or linked ALL the time! I haven't read Beck in... 3 years?"

What are you talking about? You have posted at least three articles from Glenn Beck's The Blaze. This current link you have is no winner to truth either. The longest quote they have from the president is three words. The others are one and two words then the rest of the sentences are filled in by the person who wrote the article. Talk about the blind leading the blind.

These pols make me puke--especially the Anointed One. No respect for the constitution, no respect for individual rights, no respect for 300 years of tradition and values in America. NOTHING that comes out of their mouths can be trusted. Can not negotiate with such people

Hooray! The 'Clicky-Clicky' it 'Worky-Worky'!

@markust: I voted 4 (I've read the article, eh?)
AT LEAST 3 others voted 1 BEFORE the article was up.

Now, it's entirely possible they voted "1" because the link wasn't working yet, that happens!

But the fact that several "IAB Liberal Brigade" (My "polite" version of what I call them...) COMMENTED NEGATIVELY ON THE ARTICLE before it was up? Just how am I 'SUPPOSED' to take that?

Other "left wing sites" get posted or linked ALL the time! I haven't read Beck in... 3 years? 4? He got really boring.

@sparki1980: It's just easier for @FancyLad and @The_Mods to re-use the same picture as an avatar than to hunt out, get permission for new ones every time.
Plus it alerts the reader to: Another post about THIS topic right away...

Obama has never done anything except political stunts. Not sure he knows anything else.

Liberals are always using victims as props and coffins as soapboxes to push their anti-constitutional gun control agenda.

"The "IAB Liberal Brigade" gives low scores and makes hate-filled comments... on something they haven't even LOOKED AT yet!"

Quit trying to be a victim. Your political posts never get past 2 because even the titles are dripping in partisan BS. You get your "facts" and "news" from Breitbart and Glenn Beck, how is anyone supposed to trust a word you post? Notice that even the most wacked out liberals on here don't post articles from Olbermann or Maddow or whoever the leader of that side is now? I wouldn't waste my time going to partisan liberal sites yet you somehow think your partisan conservative blogs are trustworthy. Sorry but if you get your "news" from untrustworthy sites you yourself are going to be untrustworthy and get low ratings.

Random picture of Obama at podium is boring. Am I to come to this site when I am bored, or when I want to be bored?

Yeah. I think the accidental broken linky has brought out the truth.

Thanks @auburnjunky! And thanks for using the word "linky" too So I'm not the only one!

It's not so much "broken" as it hasn't started working yet. Sometimes these things take a few minutes, eh?

But when the IAB-LB starts spouting off BEFORE the linky is up? That really tells you something...

...right @normalfreak2? Which PARTICULAR part of the article did you find to be "misinformation" eh? Eh?

@Zeegrr60: The word "Boston" does not appear in this article... wtf are you tripping on, dude?

In fact the 'Clicky' doesn't work for me... yet. So I again wonder WTF are you talking about?

I went and re-read the article, just to be sure. Do TRY to remain on topic... k-thx-boi

Boston didn't have "Anything" else so they blew up a race. I've heard a lot of crap in my life,but that was the crappiest.

Two Obama posts in a row?

It's not MY fault! Uwaaa!

Anyhow, I found this article SHORT and intelligent.
I hope both sides of the issue will agree: emotional blackmail is an ugly thing... but to say "no more political stunts" during a political stunt? That takes a special kind of stupid...
