Obama: NRA Has an "Extremely Strong Grip" on Congress

Obama continues speaking American as a second language.

Oh, that's wrong, of course. Mr. Global Cosmopolitan Rara Avis only speaks one language.Which makes one wonder why he speaks it so poorly.

The problem isn't the actual statement -- that the NRA has a "grip" on Congress. It's that Obama seems to suggest this is somehow illegitimate or dishonest.

President Obama appeared on a podcast with comedian Mark Maron this weekend to talk about race and guns following the horrific shooting massacre at a Charleston, SC, church.

Obama lamented that he was unable to jackhammer some gun control legislation through Congress following the Sandy Hook shooting, saying "the grip of the NRA on Congress is extremely strong."


But the NRA isn't just some third party with control over Congress. The NRA represents millions of people who want to protect their right to keep and bear arms. The only reason the NRA has any influence is because the NRA has a very large membership of people who vote. Obama is just upset that Congress isn't disregarding the will of their constituents in favor of a progressive agenda much the way Obama has disregarded the Constitution and checks and balances to impose his progressive agenda on America.

Obama's real enemy is now, as it as always been, a powerful special interest lobbying group called The Majority of American Citizens.
