ONCE AGAIN, President Obama attempts to usurp Congress, and, as if he's a king, decides that he'll just speak whatever he wants into existence and completely bypass our laws and our democracy. In this case, Monarch Obama has decided that he'll speak more gun control laws into existence. Today King Obama held a press conference and shed crocodile tears in his shameless display of fake compassion for shooting victims while he supports planned parenthood and their abortion inustry and baby body parts market. I wasn't alive during the presidency of Andrew Johnson (Johnson was impeached). I do remember the Carter years. Carter has been widely considered and is arguably the worst president in modern history... That is, until King Obama stepped up to actually make Jimmy Carter look not so bad.
