I think it's hilarious that this thread was started on the premise that the President was lying and most people seemed to claim "Pics or it didn't
Then, once a picture of the President shooting was released, all of a sudden the conversation changed to "Oh he must be posing for that shot, or
he's only done it once or twice"
This is no different than when Birthers claimed Obama wasn't born in this country and were so adamant about it that Obama's team finally released
his Birth Certificate in long-form. What ensued after that you ask? The same, but but but, that the right is using now because...oh gosh...his Birth
Certificate doesn't look exactly like mine and so he must be an Illegal Alien and the Birth Certificate, a fraud.
There's no convincing any of you is there?
PS: I don't know why some of you are so worked up about the Gun-Control measures being pushed through Congress either.... 1) Obama is entitled to
his opinion that ARs are Bad and so are hi-cap magazines, and 2) The only likely thing to actually pass through Congress is the Universal Background
checks that over 85% of Americans agree with. If I owned an AR or Hi-cap Mags, I wouldn't be too worried....
Personally, I could care less about Obama's claims or his real hobbies.
But this thread has been following the facts. And the facts are, that a picture can be fabricated, just as easily as a story or news piece, if it was
needed to continue or to prop up, the President's own statement. If he was having a "Biden" moment, and stuck his foot in it, then there would have
to be a choice made, by his PR people. Run with it, or spin it, to minimize the damage.
But, if it was all orchestrated, then that would be a different application of the "evidence".
I think we are all just doing what we do, here on ATS, which is get to the bottom of the TRUTH, as best we can.
If one is of the opinion, that Obama and his handlers, are engaged in a campaign of deception and trickery, then they are going to try to uncover that
ruse, for what it is. Those who trust and believe in their "savior" will try to downplay the derision from those who point to glaring
inconsistencies with the "story".
And, as for any ban, Obama and his fellow lovers of control, have wanted to further restrict guns, among other things, for a long time. He would take
anything that he could get by Congress. Even semi-autos and high capacity magazines. Gladly! But, he has been advised, that we aren't rolling over
and taking it, yet again, this time around. So, he and his, have been doing a little D.C. two-step, and back peddling a bit, over the "assault
weapons, and hi-caps.
But they have to get something passed, to further restrict our rights and the Constitution, otherwise, they've wasted a perfectly good tragedy, and
might inflame their backers! So, universal background checks and some token mental health legislation, is what they will settle for.
In my opinion, it's the latter, that should receive the lion's share of our tax dollars and focus. But it seems that there are certain powers in
place, that still have an agenda to promote, so.....
