Another Good Sign from Congress

Reid doesn’t seem too crazy about the idea of gun control, and is signaling so publicly. I think it’s good to get a little breathing room, but it’s not time to stand down yet. Not by a long shot. This still hasn’t even really started yet.

    With Pew’s study showing that only 15% of pro-gun supporters have ever contacted a lawmaker about the issue before, I’d say it’s definitely far from over. It’s way too easy for the media to make up the ground and become the sounding board for the anti-gun voices and try to drown us out.

    Care to bet that Presidente Zero will push this issue?

      Yeah; he’s not a cultural Baby Boomer—although I suppose gun control has forever been a Progressive cause—and unless he can see a way it’ll hurt his enemies, he won’t outside of whatever he thinks he can get away with via Executive action.

      So, per Reid, it depends on the House not going wobbly. Which is entirely under Team Boehner’s control (the House is something of a de jure dictatorship, at least in terms of what gets brought up for floor votes, allowed amendments, etc.).

      I’m moving from DEFCON 1 to 2 or 3.

    Any time they seem to be backing down, they’re getting ready to launch. Remember the election. Obama was tired, the stadiums had no one there comparitively, his grey hair was showing. He looked tired.

    And boom. He’s still around, looking energized.

    I think they use the arab technique of calling a truce so they can regroup and press the attack again. (Hudna?)

    Don’t let up for one second. We may lose NY, but I’ll be damned if I’m going without a fight.

      Actually, I wonder if his polling was as off as we think Romney’s was, and his win was a bit of a surprise to his team. Not too big of one, I’m sure they knew it was close and their data was marginal.

    Reid is relaxing because he knows DUUUUH WON will take the heat off of him by the use of executive order.

    He was on the local Vegas news tonight and it wasn’t all that comforting. Lots of weasel words, he also talked about how great the one is, pushing through obocare despite multiple times it was practically dead.

  6. Jeff Grey says:

    He just got caught up in what might be a really nasty bribery/influence peddling case. He has other things on his mind right now.

    • Harold says:

      The allegations sounded extremely sketchy to me, it could all be the guy who claimed to have an in with him. Reid knows the truth, if it’s the latter he’s not going to be sweating it.
