Soothing the liberal conscience

After President Obama got finished attacking the First Amendment, he’s now on to the Second.

As Mitt Romney predicted during his presidential campaign against this president, Obama might have more “flexibility” in a second term when it comes to deals with Russian dictators, but he will have less need for it when it comes to dealing with people in his own country who don’t happen to share his views. Romney predicted, correctly, that, while Obama was accountable to the people, he would not go after people’s legal guns. But once he’s a lame duck — what a surprise — he attacks our Second Amendment rights.

If he could find a way to strip away the Third Amendment, I’m sure he would. But that would involve supporting our military, which he’s too busy cutting.

Not one of the president’s 23 proposals would have prevented the Newtown shooting, and just like welfare, just like redistributing wealth, just like every other liberal initiative, they do nothing to fix the problem. Their only purpose is to soothe the liberal conscience, to let them think that they are actually contributing something.
