For an hour I struggled to get my hands around this one and come up with a title that would explain, comment and perhaps entice. There is no way for my feeble brain to grasp the utter cluelessness of the Obama administration.
The mere fact that the President's press secretary and official spokesman, conundrumly named Josh Earnest, has actually spoken the words below is beyond comprehension.
(from the Washington Times)
President Obama’s spokesman said Thursday that the record number of Americans seeking to buy guns in recent weeks is “a tragedy” that the White House is at a loss to explain.
“The more that we see this kind of violence on our streets, the more people go out and buy guns,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “That is both ironic and tragic.”
The FBI conducted 185,345 firearms background checks on Black Friday, the most ever during a single day. The record number of gun sales came two weeks after the Islamic State’s terrorist attacks in Paris, but before the terrorist massacre in San Bernardino, California.
Asked why he thinks so many Americans are buying guns, Mr. Earnest replied, “I don’t know, I really don’t.”
The President and nearly every elected, or soon to be elected, liberal politician in the country is banging the drum for confiscation of guns from everyone save the monied elite and their storm trooper bodyguards.
Bloodthirsty Islamist psychopaths are freely roaming the streets murdering innocent men women and children while the President and his liberal ilk are singing kumbaya with jihadis and helping the Ayatollah to build nukes.
Despite the record numbers of guns being sold, the crime rate in the United States continues to drop. The White House promulgates the notion that these gun purchases will only fuel the “epidemic of gun violence,” but there is no evidence to support their claim. Zero. In fact, it seems the more guns are purchased the more the crime rate drops.
There is no gun violence epidemic, and there never has been (except of course in Chicago and Washington D.C. where guns have been effectively illegal for decades).
I used to say there are only two choices to explain the blather coming from Obama and the Obamaphiles; they are either stupid incompetent boobs, or they are bald-faced liars.
A third option is obviously worth considering - these loons are bat-shit crazy
Here are bat-shit crazy definitions provided by the Oxford English Dictionalry, along with the earliest citation for each:
