OBAMA CALLING SENATORS
The Hill ^ | Amie Parnes

Posted on 04/09/2013 1:24:33 PM PDT by JohnPDuncan

President Obama has been calling Republican and Democratic senators on Tuesday to discuss the gun-control vote, a White House official said.

Obama is expected to reach out to between half a dozen to a dozen senators in all, the official said.

The White House would not provide the call list, so it's unclear whether Obama is reaching out to Republican senators who have promised to filibuster gun-control legislation.

As part of the lobbying effort, Obama is telling senators that gun-control legislation "deserves a vote," the official said. The president is expected to reiterate his message in recent days that Congress has an obligation to the victims of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., to consider new restrictions on guns.

He's getting desperate. Keep up the pressure. He might not have the votes to break the filibuster. No one seems to know yet.

This 5 minute video ties Obama to Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground, and their plan to "eliminate" 25 million "bitter clingers" who just won't accept progressive "reeducation."

Jim, can you sticky something on the sidebar asking readers to contact their senators? We have 1 day to work on them. No one knows if he has the votes yet. The New York Times says “its close”.

I didn't realize until listening to Hannity today that obama, the president of all the US, the all-wise and all caring messiah and protector of the children, .... snubbed the family of a little 6 yr old boy killed at Sandy Hook because the father supports the NRA call to put guards in schools

the family was not invited to join Barry in his personal airborne political pimpwagon formerly known as Air Force One. Oh I lost a child and I know how tender is the skin of that family right now and their grief compounded immeasurably at at being shunned by the PRESIDENT OF THE US for his own selfish petulant reasons. Imagine.

Oh but Barky is all about lecturing the GOP to “keep politics out of it”

One of those senators should tell Obama that a student at Loan Star College in Cyrus, Texas just went on a rampage and slashed 12 students, some of them quite badly.

One student said something like "if only we had had a gun."

Guess assault and scary-looking knives should be outlawed.

Article in on Yahoo News and I think CNN. I don't know how to post articles correctly so this is best I can do.

Everything animate and inanimate “deserves a vote” according to this guy. He picked up that charming phrase and is abusing it to death as he walks around Congress anytime he feels like it. “The suckers deserve a nice little vote and then I do whatever I want.”

Rand said this on Hannity. I will post the interview when I get it.

He said there were 40 prosecutions last year from failed background checks. Out of 14,000.

The GOP need to keep Benghazi in their pocket.

Don’t forget it’s a good opportunity to pull Clinton’s name through the mud before 2016. We dont want to play that card yet. I’d say in a years time the GOP should start hammering it through Issa with subpoena’s, investigations, survivor testimony. We need to link Clinton to the mess and ruin her ahead of 2016. We need to expose her plan to arm terrorists in Syria through the CIA annex.

[Paul] said there were 40 prosecutions last year from failed background checks. Out of 14,000.

John Lott, the pro-gun scholar, has often cited this statistic.

The reason there are so few prosecutions is the prevalence of "false positives" -- background checks submitted with mistakes in them or that were misread. Something over 90% of them pass muster if they're re-submitted with complete and correct data.

Feinstein and Boxer - California sucks politically speaking. On top of those two, we have Pelosi. California has been in the control of the DemoncRATS for 30+ years, and now they have complete legislative control with respect to state offices. GOP held offices are few and far between.
