According to the latest polls more than 58% of the people are opposed to gun control. BTW - Obama is real big on "who won the election" except when it comes to pointing out that the House was elected too, and the GOP won the House by a much wider margin than the Democrats won the WH.

The president of the United States will release a binder full of new gun-control executive orders on Wednesday. Instead of standing alone, bearing full responsibility for the imperial actions he is about to take, President Obama will surround himself with an audience of kids who wrote to him after the Newtown, Conn., school massacre. This is the most cynical in Beltway theatrical staging -- a feckless attempt to invoke "For the Children" immunity by hiding behind them.

What has happened to the deliberative process in this country? Public debate in Washington has deteriorated into Sesame Street sing-a-longs. We are already inundated...
