    Political beliefs play into it insofar as Presidents have agendas and those agendas are driven by their beliefs as to whats right and wrong with the country.

    If I'm president and I think enforcing federal civil rights laws is more important than enforcing federal firearms laws and I only have enough people/money to do one or the other it's pretty obvious what I'm gonna do end the money on.

    Do you believe that everything a politician says is true?

    No, ofcourse not, but you seem pretty selective in what you choose to believe or not believe coming out of a politicians mouth...For instance this gaff of Obama's that I pointed out to you. See, you will go down this road because after days, and post after post of you supporters arguing that he didn't change the law, he himself changed the law...Then you are forced to look foolish and talk about how politicians lie...How convenient for you...Excpet, that it is out loud laughable....

    Yes, using facts to decide if something is true or not is "pretty selective"
