‘It Ain’t True’

Posted on | December 31, 2012 | 18 Comments

“I believe in the Second Amendment. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away . . . So if you want to find an excuse not to vote for me, don’t use that one because it just ain’t true. It ain’t true.”
Barack Obama, September 9, 2008

“I’ve been very clear that, you know, an assault rifle ban, you know, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, that there are a set of issues that I have historically supported and . . . will continue to support.”
Barack Obama, Dec. 30, 2012

    One is tempted to call it duplicity, but it’s really about multiplicity, isn’t it?

    @smitty_one_each I recall these assault weapons being banned under a republican Pres before. I don’t get the anti-Obama paranoia now.

    […] have noted, all of Mr. Obama’s promises have an expiration date. That promise appears to have expired this past […]

    This is the crux of the problem. We have a pathological narcissistic megalomaniac for president. He doesn’t just bend the truth, he is lawless and is predisposed to lying. He gives the allusion of integrity (to his supporters and the media) but there is no integrity. We have the equivalent of a dictator who has absolutely no adherence to the truth in any frame of reference. Unfortunately, even the right wing media is incapable of pinning him down, so it goes on. Even Daryl Issa thinks it’s a game he can win if he just asks the right question but the whole game is rigged and rotted. If we had a Fred Thompson, to dig and persist, BHO might see the end of his term sooner rather than later, then again Fred (good on Nixon) lost his desire to finish the work on Billy Jeff at some point along the way.

    The press is covering for Obama by not reporting or covering his hypocrisy, lies and policy failures.

    In criminal law sometimes an omission, or failure to act, constitutes a “guilty act” and places the defendant in breach of that duty. The media is in breach of its Constitutionally Protected duty to report the objective truth which often serves as a check on the government and helps protect the Constitutional Rights of all Americans.

    The press seems to think the “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…” portion of the First Amendment is more important than “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall
    not be infringed” portion of the Second Amendment.

    Maybe we need a law requiring “Objective Truth” from the media. After all, if the right to an abortion can be established through a Constitutional “Right to Privacy” then there is surely a “Right to Objective Truth” from the media.

    Forbidding the sale of something is a far cry from actually taking it away from someone who already owns it.
