Just in time for Democrats to begin pushing gun control as hard as humanly possible, President Obama has released photos of himself being sad about the tragedy in Sandy Hook.
It’s a typical bully tactic for this administration – by connecting grief over Sandy Hook to a legislative agenda item Dems have long sought, Obama and company continue to imply that those who disagree are emotionless about the murder of children in Newtown, Connecticut. It’s a vile tactic. But it’s the usual at this point.
President Obama released the photo above today. Why not in the aftermath of Sandy Hook, before Democrats in Congress started their gun control cramdown? Because that wouldn’t have served his political purpose. The left will stand on the bodies of the children murdered in Newtown to press forward gun control. And they will imply that everyone who opposes them somehow lacks humanity.
