Maryland has the additional security of relying on taxing the incomes of voters who work for the federal government or for government contractors. Small government conservatives are a threat.
Initially Obama and his administration were acting purely in the perceived interests of the political future of the Democratic Party. They have done such extensive damage to that brand that Democrats are turning on them. They are now acting as complete rogues with nothing but self interest to guide them. There is no "Team Obama" anymore. The ship is going down and it's every man for himself.
Does it really matter what Kerry says about ISIS and Islam? As long as ISIS thinks they are doing the will of Allah, they will be a clear and present danger to anyone and everyone who is not a Muslim, or their kind of Muslim.
Doesn't the federal form 4473 already have specific criteria by which someone with a mental illness is not able to buy a firearm legally? How is this more restrictive?
Love the Joel Chandler Harris reference. Perhaps a better, if highly politically incorrect reference, would be to Br'er Rabbit and the Tar Baby. Just to be clear, we, the citizens are Br'er Rabbit.

Most people don't know that the "Peter Principle" had a useful component that is almost never implemented. We know that people are allowed to rise to a level of incompetence. The Peter Principle called for those people to be sent back to the job in which they were competent. Government at all levels has never followed this principle. No one is demoted. They are simply shunted aside or, worse, promoted.

"Isn't there anyone in Washington who's qualified to do anything right?" That would depend on what "right" means, wouldn't it? How is the transformation of America going?

It's a step in the right direction for a Democrat, but he isn't headed for the top yet. He hasn't raped or killed anyone (that we know of).
