Don't Worry Guys....John Boehner Is On The Case Pushing Back Against Obama And The Gun Grabbers

This is a man to lead the opposition to Barack Obama!

"House committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations," a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner said in response to Obama's announcement. "And if the Senate passes a bill, we will also take a look at that."

I don't know about you guys but I get a Chris Matthews like tingle up my leg! What a forceful defense of the Second Amendment and the values of Repubican and conservative voters across the country! This is the guy I want out there as the face of conservatism!

Marco Rubio did better.

In written statement, Rubio says he'll "oppose the President’s attempts to undermine Americans’ Constitutional right to bear arms.

“Guns are not the problem; criminals with evil in their hearts and mentally ill people prone to violence are." Sen. Marco Rubio, F-FL

Via @slublog, Rick Perry did even better.

"In fact, the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president."

Would you like to try again Mr. Speaker?

Added thought: I get that Boehner's process statement is DC coder for..."not going to happen". As I emailed some folks that's a reason Boehner should be out in front and making a big deal of it....it's a fight he will win and be on the right side of public opinion. That's not going to happen a lot in the next 4 years. He should be making it a bigger fight, not a smaller one. He can lead bi-partisan (cue the chorus of angels!) coalition to victory! Build up a little capital on the cheap he can use later.

Or you know, release a code word, process statement.

Either/or.
