Democracy Has Prevailed.

The President, Yesterday

The video:

You can read the text of President Obama's speech here.

This part is getting a lot of attention:

And when he said this:
...and from first-graders in Newtown. First-graders. And from every family who never imagined that their loved one would be taken from our lives by a bullet from a gun.

Every time I think about those kids it gets me mad. And by the way, it happens on the streets of Chicago every day. (Applause.)

So all of us need to demand a Congress brave enough to stand up to the gun lobby’s lies.
He was crying.

So of course, this is what our friends in teh crazie crowd did - they mocked him, a father, for crying while talking about the slaughter of first graders at the hands of a nut with a gun.

If that's what you do, if that's who you mock and why, then you're just an awful person.

We need a Congress brave enough to stand up to the NRA.

"We need a Congress brave enough to stand up to the NRA."
Because PA may get a second Democrat Senator because Tommey stood to the NRA.
Unless the Democrats put up someone who is pro-gun control.

Toomey has an "A" rating from the NRA, so I'm not sure how he's "standing up" to them.

Some days, I like that guy.

Any NRA ratings for Tommey after Toomey-Manchin?

Ol' Froth said...

My guess is that's what cost him an A+ rating. Far as I can tell, he still has that "A" rating.

Ol' Froth: Hopefully by this time next year Toomey will be leaving the Senate.

We can only vote!
