Obama and Bloomberg Don't Know Much About Weapons They're Trying to Ban

Telling the assembled crowd at the fundraiser in San Francisco that California's Attorney General Kamala Harris was "by far the best-looking attorney general in the country," Obama went on to lie misspeak about the gun used at Sandy Hook Elementary School. He knew full well the long gun that was used is a semi-automatic, but went on to stress that it was a full-auto machine gun because he's losing the debate and semi-automatic weapons aren't as scary as full-autos and had to sex up the scare factor. NYC Mayor Bloomberg got in on the act during another interview unrelated to Obama's SF stunt. Bloomy went so far as to make the “bzzzjaaazzzztshazeet” machine gun sound that kids make when playing Army or Cops 'N' Robbers. He didn't do it right, so he obviously never played those games.

Via Jake Tapper and Hot Air:

Obama said,
“Now, over the next couple of months, we’ve got a couple of issues: gun control. (Applause.) I just came from Denver, where the issue of gun violence is something that has haunted families for way too long, and it is possible for us to create common-sense gun safety measures that respect the traditions of gun ownership in this country and hunters and sportsmen, but also make sure that we don’t have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon — by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly.”

Michelle Obama Calls Herself a Single Mom While Barack Obama Hits on CA Attorney General

Michelle Obama described herself as a "busy single mother" during an interview with CBS affiliate WCAX. She quickly corrected herself by saying she's a "working mom" without explaining exactly what her job is.

However, Michelle may have had a good reason to think of herself as a single mom. While speaking at a fundraiser in Atherton, California, Barack Obama was hitting on California Attorneys General Kamala Harris,
“You have to be careful to, first of all, say she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law, and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake. She also happens to be by far the best-looking attorney general in the country — Kamala Harris is here."
Was Obama being sexist, wolfish, and boorish? Or is he just a cad? Whatever, he needs to pay more attention to his hormonal problem that pops up from time to time. Obama got himself in deep doo-doo back in 2008 when he addressed a reporter as "sweetie" which was demeaning and condescending, but he also said in a debate that Hillary Clinton was "likeable enough". Many people of all sexes and all political stripes heard that as arrogant and smug.

Maybe the rumors about separate vacations are more true than not. Maybe it's not all kumbaya in the White House residence.

CO Democrat Says Once Fired, Hi-Cap Mags Can't Be Used Again

Democratic U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette is a leading sponsor of federal bans on high-capacity ammunition magazines in the 112th and 113th Congresses. During a gun control debate Tuesday sponsored by the Denver Post, DeGette was asked how banning high capacity magazines - those holding 15 or more rounds - would reduce gun violence, the Honorable Congresswoman from Denver explained,
“I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.”

The audience was all atwitter with giggles. State Sen. Kevin Lundberg (R-CO) even sent a Tweet to DeGette, “Just so you know, magazines are reloadable.” National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told the Post, "Two words - pretty stupid," and that the member needed help.

The Colorado GOP spokesman Owen Loftus responded on Wednesday,
“It’s extremely alarming that Rep. DeGette is running federal legislation to ban magazine clips, when she doesn’t even know what a magazine clip is. Rep. DeGette’s comments show that Democrats are more concerned with appeasing their radical base, than standing up for responsible, law abiding citizens.”
At the end there, I thought she going to complain about those blow-in advertising cards that always fall out of magazines when you pick them up. Of course, the recording was cut off, so she might have - I don't know. This just points up the problem with voting while Democrat.

Organic Food Label Trick

Volunteers who thought certain types of yogurt and cookies were organic estimated them to have significantly fewer calories and people willing to pay up to 23 per cent more for themPutting an organic label on ordinary foods tricks people into believing they are healthier and have better taste, say New York scientists.

I don't know about that. I was shopping yesterday and the guy in front of me bought organic labelled food. He was gaunt, pale, and wearing shorts over longjohns.
