I Guess It All Depends...

...on one's definition of "feeling".

"For Obama, who is less known and is from Chicago, a city guy and an African American, the feeling is that he is anti-gun[.]"

~ Jim Kessler, vice president for policy at Third Way

Yeah, just so long as your definition of "feeling", in this instance, includes the phrase "well-documented, indisputable fact".

In Obama's eyes, a nationwide handgun ban is a "reasonable" regulation.

But, a law requiring parental consent for underage girls seeking an abortion is a blatant and unacceptable abrogation of one's Constitutionally-protected rights.

Sandy Froman:

The campaign that has brought Obama this far is premised on the idea that he is some sort of post-partisan, transcendent figure who could bring America together and bridge the divide between the Red States and the Blue States.

But in the past couple weeks America has been getting glimpses of a Barack Obama that is nothing like this manufactured image. Between his spiritual leader’s anti-American tirades and his off-the-cuff comments, Obama is looking less like a unifying figure and more like an ultra-left political activist.

Great uniter, my pale, white, Scotch-Irish-Canadian-American ass. Though, for the record, I will be awarding partial credit to anyone attempting to compare Barack Obama to John F. Kennedy.

They are half right, after all.
