The One Question Someone Should Ask Barack Obama


The next time the President comes down from Olympus to receive the sacrifices and prayers of the American press corps, they should ask him just one question. This one:

Mr. President, you had a majority of the House of Representatives and United States Senate for two years when Republicans could not block or obstruct you. Why didn’t you pursue gun control legislation then instead of the Affordable Care Act or work with the Democratic majorities concurrently on both gun control and health care proposals?

That question really should be asked if the President now, seven years in with Republicans in control of both Houses of Congress, when if the President really was concerned about gun control (not to mention immigration) he could have gotten his way from January 2009 to January 2011.

Instead he did nothing and now blames everyone else.
