And How Did That Play In Peoria, Mr. President?

Lame duck President Obama looked exceedingly lame at his Rose Garden lamentation. Maybe lamentation is the wrong word. It was more like a hissy fit. I don't think I have ever heard a man sound so damn bitchy. It was all the NRA's fault. Senators Pryor, Baucus, Heitkamp, and Begich didn't help matters any. In fact one might say the NRA couldn't have won without them but they escaped blame. I can't recall a previous president putting on such an exhibition. Also I don't recall another person being so"passionately angry", as the fawning press called it, and simultaneously dull. It was a exciting as watching a child pout. He really needs to hire a decent speech writer. A good wordsmith would clothe the President's thoughts with a bit civility. Put a shiny veneer over the rough lumber. As it is when the President bears his mind it's almost like an act of indecent exposure.
One supposes the President inwardly looked homeward to his adopted Illinois were the Democrats run things; to where Democrats in the lower house hold a 71 to 47 majority over the despicable Republicans. They would put the NRA in it place. A funny thing happened in the Illinois. Almost as the federal gun bill was going down in flames in the Senate the downstate Democrats revolted at restrictive gun legislation sending the proposed legislation to 31 to 76 painful death. Maybe the sequester had something to do with it.
