Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Night and Day, Obama’s Second Amendment edition

Barry O last year, while courting the moonbats needed for the Dem nomination:

“. . . the campaign of Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said that he ‘…believes that we can recognize and respect the rights of law-abiding gun owners and the right of local communities to enact common sense laws to combat violence and save lives. Obama believes the D.C. handgun law is constitutional.’”

The Obamaliar today, right before the predictable outcome of the Supreme Court – DC gun ban – Second Amendment case:

With the Supreme Court poised to rule on Washington, D.C.’s, gun ban, the Obama campaign is disavowing what it calls an “inartful” statement to the Chicago Tribune last year in which an unnamed aide characterized Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., as believing that the DC ban was constitutional.

“That statement was obviously an inartful attempt to explain the Senator’s consistent position,” Obama spokesman Bill Burton tells ABC News.

If, by “consistent”, you mean “Changing my mind, or at least my rhetoric, within an seven-month window”, then yeah…”consistent”!

Notes Ed Morrissey:

Suddenly, with the general election looming, Obama discovers that his campaign’s statement was inartful.  This seems rather puzzling, because before he ran for public office, Barack Obama was supposed to be a Constitutional law expert.  One might expect the “inartful” excuse on wetlands reclamation or some other esoteric matter of public policy, but the Constitution is what he supposedly studied at Columbia and Harvard.  One has to wonder whether Obama has any competence even in his own chosen field to have seven months go by before realizing that he got the Constitutional question wrong.

Wait, wait, lemme guess: “This is not the Constitution I knew”, right?

  4. Yes, it was merely an inartful expression of Obama’s consistent position. What he meant to say was “I don’t want any of you bitter, bible-thumping rubes to have the means at hand to overthrow my oppressive regime, once a majority of you are sufficiently dumb enough to elect me.”
    Much more clear…
