Given we only cover the gun fight, I haven’t spoken too much about Obama’s scandal woes, with the IRS harassing political enemies, Benghazi, and now this AP/DOJ scandal. But that’s not to say there’s no gun rights connection at all. The weaker this Administration is, the safer our gun rights are going to be. An embattled Obama Administration is not going to have the political clout to twist arms in order to flip votes. It will have less time, energy, and political capital to spend pushing any gun control agenda. So let us hope this Administration remains embroiled in scandal. It can only help our gun rights.

You have to remember this is about CONTROL, not guns. When obamacare is fully in effect IRS will have access to your medical records and history(HIPPA). They will have access to your spending habits thru your bank and debit card. It will be a simple matter to merge those records with your voter registration and determine if you are a “good” (socialist) guy or a BAD (conservative) guy or just a sheep (non-voter). Already people that were outed as contributors to Tea Party groups have been harrassed and audited by IRS. How will it be when the IRS can control what, IF ANY, health care you receive. I think we are a long way down the road to a totalitarian regime and the “media” has been blowing smoke to cover our view out the windows.
Exactly- with the scandal very few republicans will want to look like they are helping Obama now.
And fast and furious and letting terrorists roam free despite warnings from Russia and SA. Don’t forget them. Obama is going to be nice and busy.
With the way things are going for Obama right now, there might even be articles of impeachment drafted against him in the US House of Representatives sometime this summer. We can at least hope so.
Let us not forget that the turning point for Obama’s fortunes was his across the board defeat on gun control and thanks to whom? Well it wasn’t the Republican leadership in Washington but instead the millions of gun owners who mobilized to protect their Second Amendment rights.
My pessimistic assessment is that all these scandals are going to be like Bill Clinton’s scandals — when fundamentally the masses didn’t care, so nothing happened. I can remember being ecstatic at Clinton getting caught dead to rights by Monica Lewinsky’s “DNA” stained dress, and crushed when it all came to nothing. But I learned from that. In the current example, the people who already hate Obama are thinking they have hit a goldmine of political ammo, but the people who always sorta-kinda liked him don’t see what the problems are. Only the left turning against their own man and talking the masses that follow them into turning too, would make a difference. I don’t see that happening.
I think an analogy is Fast and Furious. We thought it was a big deal, but no one else did, so nothing came of it. Stop the man on the street and ask him, and I’d be very surprised if one in five would even know what Fast and Furious was. I’m betting that even six months from now, most people won’t be able to tell you what the current scandals were all about.
It’s hardly a scientific sample, but I’ve been eavesdropping on what people are talking about “on the street,” and the scandals ain’t it. Don’t get your hopes up.
Anyone else getting sick of the eeyores?
You mean as in “eeee — Been Down This Road Too Many Times bef — ore?”
Dang, what’s that old saying, something about “Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different outcomes?
But buck up, I’m sure there’s somebody somewhere who’ll accept your check in return for telling you to expect a different outcome.
Well I’d rather this administration stopped doing scandalous things, but if they’re going to keep doing them I certainly want them to get caught. Some accountability would be a nice change of pace as well.
This sort of thing won’t stop on it’s own though, it’s inherent in the current system. It is too big and too powerful: corruption and abuse follows as a matter of course.
I would like to think we can salvage things before it simply collapses under it’s own weight, but I’m not optimistic.
