When you can't win, accuse the other side of being extremists and uncompromising. In his latest effort to blame House Republicans for everything, President Obama is whining about their lack of compromise when it comes to gun control.
President Obama is suggesting that House Republicans on the issue of gun control appear neither willing to work with him nor inclined to listen to the American public on the issue.
“The House Republican majority is made up mostly of members who are in sharply gerrymandered districts that are very safely Republican and may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they're really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican constituencies,” the president said in an interview with The New Republic.
Obama must be forgetting all of those Senate Democrats who think his gun control proposals are extreme and will do nothing to prevent another mass shooting.
