Barack Obama responds to the Supreme Court's rejection of the DC gun ban:
I have said consistently that I believe the second amendment is an individual right. And that was the essential decision that the Supreme Court came down on.
Problem is that Obama is as anti-firearm a politican who has hit the national stage since Al Gore spontaneously combusted in 2000: "Barack Obama Voted Four Times To Allow Criminal Charges Against Homeowners Who Defend Their Person and Home With a Gun"
The Washington Post's Howard Kurtz ("Pretzel Logic") plunges Obama's clogged rhetoric clean as a whistle.
Here's how the Illinois senator handled the issue with the Chicago Tribune just last November:
"The campaign of Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said that he... believes the D.C. handgun law is constitutional.' "
Kind of a flat statement.
And here's what ABC reported yesterday: " 'That statement was obviously an inartful attempt to explain the Senator's consistent position,' Obama spokesman Bill Burton tells ABC News."
For and against public financing of campaigns? Check.
For and against FISA? Check.
For and against a "divided Jerusalem"? Check.
Red State asks: "May I suggest that Senator Obama start putting a 'Freshest if used by' date on all his speeches?"
And Hot Air's Ed Morrissey observes:
"Barack Obama has been spinning like a top, and watching his positions on, well, just about everything is like watching table-tennis matches on TiVo triple fast forward. FISA, public financing, and NAFTA have all been reversed in the last couple of weeks, and Obama's not through yet . . .
"Suddenly, with the general election looming, Obama discovers that his campaign's statement was inartful. This seems rather puzzling, because before he ran for public office, Barack Obama was supposed to be a Constitutional law expert... the Constitution is what he supposedly studied at Columbia and Harvard."
We might as well have had a Clinton win the Democratic primary. Obama will say anything (and I mean eh-nee-thing) to win. And that's precisely why he will lose the general election.
This Chicago politician can't be trusted as far as you can throw a bogus presidential seal.
