"This is Not About Politics" said Politician Barack Obama at His Latest Political Rally

"This is Not About Politics," said Barack Obama in a campaign style stump speech where he mentioned Congress no less than eighteen times. Four times, he repeated: "We have to tell Congress it’s time..." to do something or other. Once, he says, " I’m asking everyone listening today, find out where your member of Congress stands on this."

Does that sound like a non-political speech to you? A similar sentiment came from the Business Insider:

"The speech served as one of the most emotional and forceful on gun control, as he spoke with urgency at a rally that at times sounded more like a campaign stop."
-Brett LoGiurato

So, when the Bamboozler-in-Chief tells you that what he's talking about is "not about politics", you know that's all he's talking about.


This is not about politics. This is about doing the right thing for all the families who are here that have been torn apart by gun violence. (Applause.) It’s about them and all the families going forward, so we can prevent this from happening again. That’s what it’s about. It’s about the law enforcement officials putting their lives at risk. That’s what this is about. This is not about politics. (Applause.) This is not about politics.

The problem with this bit of shameless demagoguery, is that none of the "solutions" that are being put forth would have prevented the tragedy at Sandy Hook. If it's all about preventing another mass shooting like Sandy Hook, how come all we get are the same old tired gun control bromides that haven't worked before?

The Left is advancing a political position on guns and the Second Amendment. To use the terminology of the Left, they are 'dancing on the graves of murdered schoolchildren' to do it.

Repeat after me: "This is not about politics. This is not about politics. This is not about politics. Well, gosh! Look at that! It IS about politics!"

  1. If you read between the lines, he's saying, "I want to control you, so I will take your guns."

    1. Barry was in full demagogue mode for this speech.
