Obama to Doe-Eyed Followers: Lie For Me

Stop me if you're heard this one before.

In Elko, Obama tried to anticipate his critics and called on the crowd of about 1,500 to sharpen their elbows, too.

"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face," he said.

"And if they tell you that, 'Well, we're not sure where he stands on guns.' I want you to say, 'He believes in the Second Amendment.' If they tell you, 'Well, he's going to raise your taxes,' you say, 'No, he's not, he's going lower them.' You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case."

I'm still waiting to hear about all the hard work he did in Illinois challenging the powers that be, while trying to restore the Second Amendment rights of his fellow Chicagoans. For such a self-professed champion of American's gun rights, you'd think there'd be some evidence that at he at least tried to do something about such an egregious violation of the people's Constitutional rights.

Yeah, right.

Anyone who believes that barack Obama supports the people's right to keep and bear arms, or that anyone with a job will see their tax burden and cost of living go down with Obama in the White House is an utter fool.

And, not the simple, garden variety, Kool-Aid-drinking fools. Those people can actually be reasoned with to some degree. We're talking purple sheets and Nike running shoes.
