President Obama, Fatigued, Almost Defeatist, in Fifteenth Address to Nation After Mass Shooting

President Obama looked weary. Maybe it was the 2:00 AM phone call alerting him that 50 club patrons had just been killed at an Orlando, Florida night club.  Or, maybe it was an accumulated fatigue from eight years in the most stressful office in the world.

More likely, it was simply burnout from this being the fifteenth time, during his administration, he'd given an address to the nation after a mass shooting.  

He used these words in his talk to the country:

The shooter was apparently armed with a handgun and a powerful assault rifle. This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or in a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub. And we have to decide if that’s the kind of country we want to be. 

Then, sort of wistfully, he admitted:  

And to actively do nothing is a decision as well.

President Obama knows he's lost to the gun lobby, to the hayseeds who need automatic weapons to dove hunt, to those who think access to bullets designed to mangle human flesh, is guaranteed by the Constitution,  crazies and religious zealots like Omar Mateen.

  1. Nobody needs an automatic weapon to dove hunt. It is to protect you from a corrupt government. You think the constitution is going to enforce it self. Listen to Hitlers speech on gun control and then listen to Hillary's speech, identical.

  5. Obama looks weary because he probably just came out of a bath house in Chicago after being serviced by another man. Every does know Obama is a homosexual.
