    Exclamation Don’t Believe Obama!

    On the Second Amendment,

    Don’t Believe Obama!


    The presidential primary season is finally over, and it is now time for gun owners to take a careful look at just where apparent nominee Barack Obama stands on issues related to the Second Amendment. During the primaries, Obama tried to hide behind vague statements of support for “sportsmen” or unfounded claims of general support for the right to keep and bear arms.

    Doublespeak (sometimes double talk) is language constructed to disguise or distort its actual meaning, often resulting in a communication bypass. Doublespeak may take the form of bald euphemisms (e.g., "downsizing" for layoffs) or deliberate ambiguity. Doublespeak is a disparaging label for any euphemistic term perceived to be uttered in bad faith.[1]

    He is a master of the above.

    I like Obama!

    He's an excellent example why firearms owners should vote and educate friends, family and acquaintances on the issues. We need to stop this guy from getting elected.

    Thanks for the info, Festus. If you've noticed, ever since they lost the House and Senate in the midterm elections of 1994 (no doubt in large part because of the AWB), gun control is an issue that Democrats have shied away from, and for the most part, it has worked. Without making any overt references to it in 06, they took back the house, and came within one state (Ohio) of taking back the White House in 04. They'll gladly cast votes for more gun control, but will do everything they can not to let anyone know about it.

    He was born in Hawaii. Also, remember that the Constitution only allows "natural born citizens" to be President. So there. ;)
