'I love you back': President's gun control rally turns to lovefest

So, we’re not the only ones who found the crowd’s whistles, cheers and chants a little out of place at President Obama’s afternoon gun control rally in Connecticut.

“Connecticut, this is not about me,” said the president, perhaps as a reminder to the audience or even to himself. Even CBS News’ Mark Knoller couldn’t help but notice the “campaign-style cadence.”

There’s no denying that the president feeds off of an audience’s enthusiasm, and today’s speech was no exception, with journalists describing Obama not as the relatively safe “passionate” but rather outright “angry.”

There’s also no denying that Obama’s fans do love him.


Here’s a pretty solid recap for those who missed the live telecast.

  • neoface

    Liberals have lose their minds. No, Obama never means what he says, just a knee jerk reaction. LOL!!!!

  • CR

    If at first you don’t succeed, schedule a campaign rally and pander to low info voters by parading around grieving parents.

    Personally, I believe that the president should vow to resign in protest if he cannot get his gun ban passed!!

      So Joe Biden can be president?

      • CR

        I prefer stupid to evil.

        • $46661540

          I prefer the evil I know.

          Also, I’m reticent to give Biden a platform for reelection in 2016.

          • TEXANONLY

            Do you actually think the idiot biden could come up with this crap obama has. Wow come on now

        • V the K

          Which is why we (reluctantly) vote for Republicans.

          • angeleyez

            Narcissist Mae West enjoys his Cult of Personality adoration.

          • Richard Rhodes

            ok moron so republicans are stupid but not evil. You are both and a jackass on top of that. You know why this country is screwed up. It is because people like you even exist.

      • Rusty Shackleford

        Only when he’s done washing his camaro!

    • Richard Rhodes

      Oh let’s ban guns. Why don’t we just ban the whole constitution. After all the love of your life is so much smarter than the people who wrote it. You are a jackass. Why wasn’t he so vocal about this when the people were murdered at Fort Hood, or in the movie theater in Conneticut, or Gabby Giffords. You are about as stupid as stupid gets.

  • Elaine

    My only reaction, other than “gag” is stop campaigning already and do some work!

  • Peyton

    Where did he get the 90% statistic?

    • mike_in_kosovo

      Same place he gets all his statistics… his nether regions.

      • SpinMeNot

        Wait, shouldn’t that be Reggie Love’s nether regions?

        I know, I’m a bad person …

        • mike_in_kosovo


    • SpinMeNot

      Same place he gets all his stats, they made them up. I “missed” the speech, did he trot out the 90% of the illegal guns in Mexico are traced to the US? If so, he is referring to the fact that 90% of the guns the ATF is asked about that are recovered in Mexico have an original purchase that can be traced back to the US. Nobody seems to know how many guns that actually is … my guess is a very small number.

      Taking guns away from law abiding US citizens will not impact the flow of guns into Mexico one bit. And since when is our job to do anything for the Mexican government, I mean other than taking care of a good chunk of their population.

      Crap on a cracker … I thought I was starting to feel better …

      • Peyton

        Actually even worse than that. He said 90% of Americans support stronger background checks.

        • SpinMeNot

          ah, well that would be 90% of Americans — that would be people that voted for him, the rest of us are dangerous extremists.

      • Richard Rhodes

        Most of the guns in Mexico come from either Russia or China not here. Except of course the ones that Obama gives to the drug gangs. FAST and Furious remember. I am sure you do.

    • Bill Board

      He pulled it out of his a$$, like he does all of his bogus statistics.

      • SpinMeNot

        Which explains why most of his ideas stink?


    Well , I hate you Barry Barrack , what ever your name is.

    • Miss Clairee

      Get ready Hollyweird….Hookerworld……Harletwood……in just shy of 4 years you will have a new leading man to cast in all your disgraceful movies!

  • Chip

    Wonder if any of these sheeple are not on govt assistance of some sort…..

  • $45875941

    He’s the Jim Jones of the leftists.

    • SpinMeNot

      I never thought I would say this – at least Jim Jones told his followers what his end game was … as opposed to lying about it.

      I’ll take an honest, crazed communist over a dishonest statist/marxist (marxocrat) any day of the week. Its always better to know where you stand than wonder about it.

      • Guest

        Very true.

    • wwbdinct

      Exactly, exactly, exactly!

  • Chip

    He says GOP senators’ possible filibuster of any gun control legislation will be a stunt yet, says nothing when Pelosi shoved Obamacare down out throats without even reading it….

    • nc

      Oh snap!

    • Frustrated Teacher

      Yep…and using the families of dead kids to push ahead with your Unconstitutional gun grabs isn’t a stunt? Irony is lost on the left!

      • Richard Rhodes

        This is how dictators come to power and murder thousands of people all threw history. They take away their defense so they can kill anyone who is not on their side. Only problem is they have to kill almost everyone after they start. Just ask anyone from Liberia what Taylor did to them.

  • Bill Board

    It reminds me of the old Adolf Hitler “love-fest” footage on the History Channel. Those ignorant followers also chanted.

    • SpinMeNot

      Seen the new MSNBC “Bend Over”, I mean “Lean Forward” spot — they are not your children, but rather they are the children of the community.

      I got news for the first 100 they send after my grand kids … and it isn’t good news.

    • tony30088

      And Hitler surrounded himself with children as well. BTW, what’s up with the DoD classifying Catholics as terrorists? Will Catholics be wearing yellow crosses soon so they can be identified on sight?

      • Bill Board

        The DOD is not only classifying Catholics as terrorists but they classify Veterans as potential terrorist as well.

        • tony30088

          Just because you fall behind in what’s going on does not mean it’s not.
          Google it before you spout out BS like a libertard.

          • Bill Board

            WHAT? Try making sense.

          • tony30088

            Washington Times ‘Defense Department classifies Catholics, evangelicals as extremists’ Google it dumb azz libertard.

            @tony30088:disqus, please try reading @disqus_HJepCGkzLM:disqus’s post again.

          • tony30088

            Oops. My bad @bullboard, sorry. Thanks for showing me my error @cgerdash.

          • Bill Board

            If you read my post(s), you would know I am the farthest thing from a “libtard”.

  • ceemack

    I’m surprised the crowd didn’t break out into a rendition of “Tomorrow Belongs To Me.”

    He makes me sick to my stomach.

    @banditDerenzio I love President Obama. I’ve never regretted voting for him but we owe him so much more.

    Aren’t you precious. I owe the dirt bag nothing. I especially don’t owe the putz my guns.

    • Silenttype78

      Yup….what a brainless twit that gal is.
      You know? Heres what I’m thinking- he owes US…a lot more.
      I owe him nothing. Presidents work for the people.

      • nc

        “You tell him.” “No, YOU tell him.” “No, YOU tell him.” “No, YOU tell him.” “No, YOU tell him…”

    • Adi

      You owe the national debt on your back and the back of your children. Sorry to break the spell, but you owe Him a lot.

    blah blah blah, vote with emotions not facts…. typical liberal BS

  • gracepmc


  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    An uneducated and sickening bunch.

  • rivers

    Obama will call his opponents evil, ignore grieving Newtown parents who disagree with him and use grieving parents who do agree with him. He will demagogue and say shame on you – but I still think he will lose this one. I just watched Lisa Ling’s documentary on North Korea: sorry, Obama, we’re just not there yet.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Duncan/100004899912352 John Duncan

    10 Afghan kids killed by NATO (i.e American warplanes), why no tears for them Mr. President? Is it because they’re brown and have weird sounding names?

    The hypocrisy is unbearable.

  • http://twitter.com/R_U_Srs Seriously?

    “We owe him so much more.” Really?? REALLY?

    He’s A president. That’s all he is. President. What the hell does she think we owe him?

  • conservative2012

    It’s just creepy the way some people just adore and worship him.

    • David

      Amazing is it not? Adoration and worship of a person who has accomplished nothing of note.

  • Marvin Nelson

    I just lost my breakfast and lunch. What a load of bovine scat. These libtards absolutely scare the hell out of me-can they really be that stupid? Sheeple!!

  • David

    I love my children. I love my grandchildren. I love my close friend and friends. I have never loved a president. The morons who love a person they don’t know are very, very sick.
