      ....not some ignorant jackass.

      And it was a legitimate question to be asked.

      •  what was legitimate about it? (6+ / 0-)

        he hasn't been on the golf course, or in Hawaii

        everyone is getting ready for the holidays and he has been negotiating every single day, meeting with familieis in Newtown, very visible, what the eff do they want?

        was lazy and sitting around twiddling his thumbs instead of working. Huge dogwhistle there. Not surprised that people think that is ok here though.

        •  No need for deflection. (0+ / 0-)

          President Obama at least was forthright when he spoke, implying that he wished they could have done more, but had other priorities at the time.

            to comment on how offensive Jake's ? was. Doesn't mean the ? wasn't horribly offensive. There is a reason that he's being called out all over twitter for his ?.

            •  You are. (0+ / 0-)

              And the fact that plenty of people on twitter took offense, just as you did, proves nothing.

              If you asked President Obama what he regretted from his first term guns would be on that list. From his tone he seems intent on fixing that, and with some degree of urgency.

              •  There is a huge difference between asking if Obama (0+ / 0-)

                regrets not doing more on gun control and what Jake asked. Jake implied Obama was a lazy, do-nothing president who couldn't be bothered to do his job. This isn't the first time Jake has implied this.

                •  really, jake? (0+ / 0-)

                  that's how you talk to the President of the United States?  Like O said, time for a lot of reflection....lots of people let others down on this one, including the media. where was your push on gun control, jake?

    •  hey, Jake! (0+ / 0-)

      when did you ever talk like to Dumbya?

      four incidents since O has been president......well, Jake, the President does not submit legislation nor does the president have to be the one to come up with all the idea.

      How about Congress taking leadership on this? Sure there are a few that are but they should all be all over this.
