Obama vented his wrath at the Senate yesterday. He said his gun control measure went down in flames because of — you will not believe this — “politics.”
Yes, my friends, politics is alive and well inside the Washington Beltway. Will wonders never cease?
Obama had pulled out all the stops. He had assembled Newtown victims’ parents for a victory photo-op. Then the bill failed by 4 votes to get the necessary 60 required to prohibit filibusters.
I said this would happen on March 29. It has now happened.
John McCain had climbed on board the Obama Express bus. So had Pat Toomey. They now sit at the side of the road, out of gas.
Obama and Biden vowed that this was only round one. But Drudge’s headlines announced the truth.
If Obama could not get this through the Democrat-run Senate, he is not going to get it through the Republican-run House of Representatives.
Gridlock is grand.
