  1. Gun Control – Are our “babies” safe?

  2. At a GUN CONTROL press conference–It was 15 minutes, before a question about gun control was asked from the White House Press Corps. Utterly embarrassing!

  3. At News Conference, Reporters Skip Past Gun Control and Face Instant Criticism.

    3:34 p.m. | Updated The harshest judges of those in news media are often others in the news media, and, with the benefit of Twitter, that intrajournalistic watchdog role can be performed simultaneously with the journalism being criticized.

    Case in point was the White House news conference on Wednesday afternoon, when President Obama made a forceful announcement in response to the massacre of children last week in Newtown, Conn. He said he was directing Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. to lead an effort “to come up with a set of concrete proposals” about dealing with gun violence that he would submit to Congress no later than January.

    “We are going to need to work on making access to mental health care as easy as access to a gun,” Mr. Obama said. “We’re going to need to look more closely at a culture that all too often glorifies guns and violence.”

    His words, following five days of extensive news coverage and national debate, were intensely focused on gun violence. He addressed no other topics. Yet judging by the questions that followed his address, most of the members of the Washington press corps had other things on their minds.

    “I’d like to ask you about the other serious issue consuming this town right now, the fiscal cliff,” was the first question, from The Associated Press’s correspondent, Ben Feller.

    Mr. Obama answered. Then came the next question, again about the so-called “fiscal cliff”: “What is your next move?” Then: “You mentioned the $700,000, $800,000 — are you willing to move on income level?” And so on, for at least 15 minutes, before a question about gun violence was finally asked, by David Jackson of USA Today.

    Media watchers on Twitter — mainly other members of the media and some whose job it is to watch it, quickly seized on the questions as a sign that the Washington press corps was out of step with the national agenda.

    Pres. Obama has verbally smacked down Ed Henry, Chuck Todd, and now Jake Tapper. Who’s next? #PleaseProceed

  7. The President gives a MAJOR press conference on gun control and the WH press asks questions about the fiscal cliff. Just stunning!

  8. Ametia says:

    Let’s be crystral clear here, MSM. If there’s anyone who should be accused of BETRAYAL, it is YOU. Your slip-shod reporting, especially on Romney campaign was CRIMINAL at best.

  9. Ametia says:

    THE FRAT BOYS where an UTTER FAIL. *looking@tapper, henry, todd, and can’t recall the otherclown*

  10. The Press showed total disregard for the lives of the 20 children killed. They have shown the world money trumps kids killed. Bastards!

  11. President Obama gives a press conference on gun control after the horrific killing of 20 kids & the WHPC asks questions about the fiscal cliff. SHAME!

    • Ametia says:

      Jake Tapper asked the President where he’s been since all those shootings occured, as if to say, he’s responsible for these crazy white men running amok shooting our children. I LOATHE that IMBECILE.

  12. Ametia says:

    PBO to GOP: “At some point they’ve got to take me out of it” and focus on “doing something good for the country.”

  13. The White House Press Corps are useless clowns, an epic fail! Replace them. They’re not worth a damn!

  14. Ametia says:

    President Obama will submit gun control proposals to Congress by January

    President Obama says he will push for new laws to curb gun violence “without delay,” following last week’s horrific massacre in Newtown, Conn. Vice President Biden is heading a task force that will make recommendations for new laws by the end of next month.
    In an appearance at the White House, Obama said the eventual package of proposals will likely include some new restrictions on guns, particularly assault rifles, and high-capacity magazines. But he said it will also likely involve measures that touch on mental health initiatives.

  15. Ametia says:

    jake Tapper, you silly muthafucka. Asking the POTUS where he’s been

    I’ve been PRESIDING over the USA punk

  16. Ametia says:

    What about the NRA? They are mothers and fathers and will have to do some self-reflection.

    No one is encroaching on anyone’s second amendment rights. Put that in your peace pipe and smoke it, BITHCES.

  17. The White House Press Corps = EPIC FAIL!

  18. Ametia says:

    “I will NOT negotiate around the debt ceiling.”

  19. Ametia says:

    PULL BACK FROM THE PARTISAN WAR PAINT, AND WE CAN GET SOMETHING DONE.

  20. Ametia says:

    President Barack Obama said today that Vice President Joe Biden will lead an administration effort to develop recommendations no later than January for preventing another tragedy like last week’s school shooting in Connecticut that left 20 young children and six adults dead.

    The president said the vast majority of gun owners in America are responsible, but the more than 10,000 Americans killed every year by guns was “violence we cannot accept as routine.” “We won’t prevent them all, but that can’t be an excuse” not to try, the president added.

  21. Ametia says:

    IT’S ABOUT GUN SAFETY, BITCHES!

  22. Where are the questions on gun control? Good fking grief the media is soo stupid.

    • Ametia says:

      They’re water-carriers for GOP-NRA- Don’t care about gun safety or those children and teachers. Trayvon, Jordan. they could care less. Just a game to them.

  23. Ametia says:

    TAKE THE DEAL BOEHNER! Stop finding ways to say no. It’s hard for them to say yes to ME. At some point they weillhave to think about the people and take me out of it. Not about scoring points for them and think about what’s good for the COUNTRY.

    These jackals want POTUS to reveal his hand and not call out Boehner and Co. same old shell game. FOOLS

  24. Ametia says:

    Bring forth a balanced plan Boner, and we can get it DONE!

  25. I could smack the ish out this fool for asking a question about the fiscal cliff when the press conference is on gun control. Stupid mofo!

    • Ametia says:

      The media does not want to talk about gun control, even when PBO spoke of GUN SAFETY, 2nd Amendment rights,..etc. They are not concerned with any changes in the STATUS QUO.. Just stuck on STUPID.

  26. Ametia says:

    VP Joe’s been excused from the presser. We need compromise from the GOPPERS & IDEALOGUES.

  27. SMH at the idiot reporter who asked the question about fiscal cliff.

  28. Ametia says:

    Here come the dumb ass questions… Speaking of betraying voters? GTFOH

  29. President Obama: We cannot accept gun violence as routine

  30. Ametia says:

    Break it down, PBO about all the shootings and killings since last Friday’s massacre at Sandy Hook.

  31. President Obama: Ban assault weapons, high capacity gun clips, background checks for all purchases.

  32. Ametia says:

    I beleive in the Second Amendment and American’s rights to bear arms.

  33. President Obama: “This time words must lead to actions.”

  34. President Obama: “We need to work on making access to mental health care at least as easy as access to a gun.”

  35. Ametia says:

    We must look at a CULTURE that GLORIFIES GUNS.

  36. President Obama: “If there is even one thing we can do to prevent any of these events, we have a deep obligation – all of us to try.”

  37. Ametia says:

    POTUS & VPOTUS are at the podium

  38. Ametia says:

    My gawd; look at the row of JACKALS…
