That’s right.  New tone!

After muttering about gun control in the last presser of his first term, President Obama disgustingly said that the GOP negotiations are “holding a gun to the head of the American people.”

Crosshairs, anyone?

Where is the leftist outrage at such violent rhetoric? It’s totally fine, of course, since it was aimed at Republicans.

Twitter users are disgusted.

And, hmm.

    I was watching Dana Bash on CNN before Obama’s speech. She was talking about the Republicans and said ” For a lack of a better word. Holding a gun to the head of the American people”.
    Apparently there was no other metaphor at her disposal.
    Not one single one.

      She was probably reading the script he had for the “press conference” that was sent out from the White House this morning.

      I long ago got past the point of expressing “astonishment” that Big Media coincidentally focuses on the same stories and uses the same terminology that appear in that day’s DNC talking points memo.

      It’s a lot simpler when you just accept that Big Media is the PR wing of the DNC.

        I have taken to referring to the MSM as Fifth Columnists. That name is really more descriptive than ‘propagandists’ .

    Nothing that Mr. Obama does surprises me anymore. I mean, I may be a 19 year-old college student that just recently joined the NRA, but I’m fairly certain that asking someone not to dig themselves deeper into a hole isn’t “holding a gun to their head”. I mean, really, how stupid does someone have to be to equate not spending money they don’t have to taking a hostage? One is common sense, the other is criminal.

      You need to learn a few things, James. (1) Never expect a lib to argue/ debate rationally. (2) Never expect a lib to refrain from name calling or hyperbole when they can’t win an argument. (3) Never, ever expect a lib to have or even recognize common sense. But, since you already can say that nothing O says can surprise you anymore, you’re off to a really good start.

      James Little, you are more like a President and Obama is less than a 19 year old college student.

        As nice as it would be to know that my fellow Americans consider a small-town Oklahoma boy worthy to be president, I’d have to decline the office. I have enough idiots in my life without going to Washington.

    God forgive me but I absolutely HATE that man.

    • Shawn Smith

      Well you must be a racist. There’s no other possible reason to disagree with Obama. Everything he does is so obviously perfect (even if it’s the same actions we were calling tyrannical 5 years ago), that the only reason to disagree with him is racist hatred.

    • Michelle

      Same here, Joe. I’d never in my life hated anyone, and then along came this man. I don’t like hating, but I find it impossible to not feel that way about this man.

        Same with me…I just cannot stand to see that man on TV, hear his voice, or even think that I’m going to have to deal with him for 4 more years on some level. I’m trying to change my ‘hate’ to ‘disgust’, just to make it a bit more palatable.

        • Michelle

          The sight of him and the sound of his voice angers me so much that I don’t watch his speeches. I read the transcripts so I stayed informed on what he’s said, but I don’t have to see or hear him.

    Spewing hate for the American people. That is our president. Hurtful, dishonest, cowardly.

      What do you mean, “lately”?

      • Jack Deth

        I think he’s beginning to feel his universal adoration and Mojo slipping away.

        Make him testy. Apt to run his mouth before his brain is engaged.

          That’s exactly what I’ve been thinking. Ever since the night of the election results. He didn’t like it being so close and I believe he was actually shocked and hurt. Waiting for him to explode on air. Can’t wait.

    What if the gun’s magazine clip held less than 10 bullets? Would it be OK then?

    Didn’t the Democrats sit on four annual budgets and load that gun already?

    Obama = unfriendly, unkind, bitter, unsympathetic, malicious, vicious, rancorous, venomous, poisonous, virulent; antagonistic,aggressive, confrontational, belligerent, truculent, vitriolic; bellicose, pugnacious, warlike.
    and as David Limbaugh put it. Hostile

  • lainer51

    will the “mouth” Ed Schultz get all red in the face about that “phrase” like he did when S. Palin put marks on a map that HE said looked like crosshairs? Of course not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • J.N. Ashby

    What’s with this violent rhetoric, Obama? What if some Democrat kid shoots a house member as “revenge” for “holding a gun to your head?”

  • dabbobean

    Did Obama yell Allahu Akbar after he said that or before?

    with Harry Ried from the senate, suddenly in a scandal with a utah businessman, maybe he will hold himself to a BUDGET>……..and the republicans can jointly legislate with the dems, instead of the rep being the only grownups in the room why are we paying the senate dems?
