    obama's temper tantrum

    Talk about a sore loser! Watch this video and decide for yourself does this guy look like a sober, mature president, a leader we can count on or does he look like a spoiled little boy you see in the grocery store throwing a fit because mommy refused to buy him something he really really wanted. This is our president?

    90% of the people did not support the legislation as he said they did. 90% have supported closing the gun show loophole in a generic flavorless sense but this legislation did more than that. Second, it was a poorly very staged event with a handful of people for him to hug. I am sure he was mad, but that is in no small smart due to his own WH's misdoings. It would have been a far more effective moment had he fielded questions from the press, answered tough questions, and had a little bit less a photo-oppy for the Obama library exhibit moment.

    I'm totally in the "spoiled child" column. It was hillarious to watch. I truly thought I was watching one of my fiance's five year old nephews when they don't get what they want. I was just waiting for him to break out into a screaming/crying fit and start pounding his hands on the podium while he stomped his feet about how unfair it was that he didn't get what he wants.

    He's always come off as being a bit more on the egotistical and contemptuous side. Incidents like this simply make it more obvious to the casual observer.

    The 2012 presidental debates were another great example. It was really pretty disgusting to watch him scowl through all of them like he was about to start hurling insults at any moment in an enraged tantrum.

    President Obama is an excellent public speaker, but only when he speaks on his terms. He doesn't seem to handle challenge or defeat very well. The civil facade quickly crumbles away to reveal the thoroughly unlikable narcissistic elitist underneath.

    Re: obama's temper tantrum

    What was never addressed is how the recent mass shooters would ever have gotten on the NICS "no gun" list. Making a "secret" list of all known dangerous, violent and/or just plain crazy folks allowed to walk freely among us and then trusting all to use expensive FFL dealers to "assist" us in recording all gun sales/transfers will never significantly reduce the ability of "bad follks" to get guns to use when committing crimes. Why was not "one dime" included for additional federal gun law enforcemnt included in this bill? Of the over 72,000 known felony gun buying attempts committed in 2010 only 13 were convicted due to "lack of resources"; yet we are said to need to increase the number of felony gun sale denials to be ignored? If a criminal or insane person expresses a desire to obtain a gun yet faces no penalty for that felony gun buying attempt, just what message does that send to them?

    No. I am in the "mishandled the situation" column i.e. the "other" option that was not given.
