MILLER: Gun polling shifts, still way off target

- The Washington Times

Despite President Obama’s best efforts to exploit the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School for his political agenda, the public is starting to see through his maneuver. Polls show that the support for Mr. Obama’s gun-control wishlist is falling. Even so, the polls continue to be skewed in a way that gives the false impression of a higher approval than really exists.

MILLER: Stand with guns

- The Washington Times

“Stand with Rand” was so positive for the public discourse, that we now need to “Stand with Guns.” Three Republican senators told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that they will filibuster bringing his gun-control bills to the floor in early April. While procedurally they can’t announce in advance, an old-fashioned filibuster about the facts of gun-control laws would be a great educational tool for a wide audience.

On on the Fox Business Network, Senior Editor of Opinion Emily Miller was part the political A-team panel on "Lou Dobbs Tonight" on Feb. 15. Mr. Dobbs asked about The Washington Times story on Mayor Mike Bloomberg's irresponsible gun-control ads, the Supreme Court hearing gay marriage cases and other topics.

Ad entitled "Responsible" produced by Mayor Mike Bloomberg's organization Mayors Against Illegal Guns. The ad is running in 13 states to pressure U.S. senators to vote for gun-control legislation.

MILLER: Mayor Bloomberg’s irresponsible gun attack ads

- The Washington Times

Mike Bloomberg is spending $12 million on attack ads designed to force U.S. senators to vote for national gun control laws that will supposedly save lives. However, the New York mayor’s commercials running in 13 states over the next two weeks may cause injury and death by showcase irresponsible handling of a firearm.

MILLER: 10 worst things about Senate Democrats’ budget

- The Washington Times

Senate Democrats had four years to consider spending and taxing policies that would help our bad economy. Apparently, they ignored their lawful responsibility since 2009 only so that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid could avoid exposing that his party has no ideas to avoid our nation going bankrupt.

MILLER: Ragtime Cowboy Joe Biden

- The Washington Times

The vice president of the United States shouldn't dispense advice that would put anyone taking it behind bars. In his role as President Obama's top lobbyist for gun control, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has been shooting from both hip and lip, promoting the shotgun as the alternative to the sporting rifle.

MILLER: The sequestration farce

- The Washington Times

Politicians know the game is up once "Saturday Night Live" mocks them and their policies. President Obama found himself in that unenviable position this weekend. He had mustered all his effort to dispatch Cabinet secretaries to stand before every available camera in sight to recite tales of the mayhem and horror that would follow in the wake of a minuscule across-the-board reduction in federal spending.

MILLER: Maryland fails the troops

- The Washington Times

Aperverse side effect of Maryland's gun-control hysteria is that certain proposed legislation could leave American soldiers disarmed. The General Assembly should slow down and think about what it's doing.

MILLER: Guns on the Hill

- The Washington Times

Democrats on Capitol Hill are sprinting to give President Obama a quick victory in his gun-control crusade. Sloth won't cut it. Energized senators have sped from bad idea to full committee vote in less than two months. That sounds like sloth in the world where the rest of us live, but in the Senate, that's warp speed.

MILLER: Gun grabbers kill jobs

- The Washington Times

Gun-control laws don't reduce crime, but they do reduce employment. Some governors don't care and are pushing for more pointless statutes that put their citizens' jobs on the line. Smarter governors sense the opportunity to poach a few manufacturers from their colleagues.

MILLER: The NRA was right

- The Washington Times

It may not stick, but the Obama administration might be getting a late education in the value of guns. When President Obama first exploited the tragedy at Newtown for more gun control, Wayne LaPierre, the CEO of the National Rifle Association, suggested putting armed guards in the schools.

MILLER: Obama's real gun-control aim

- The Washington Times

Chicago is a dangerous town, but gun control hasn't made it better. The city forbids the law-abiding from having guns, leaving the bad guys to rule the streets. The result is one of the highest murder rates in the country.

MILLER: The balanced budget dream

- The Washington Times

Under a law that just took effect, Barack Obama will be the first president required to send Congress a budget that balances at some point in the future. Since that point isn't likely to be in anyone's lifetime, Republicans once again are looking to a constitutional amendment to impose restraint.

MILLER: The State of the Union gun grab

- The Washington Times

President Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday was carefully staged to promote his gun-grabbing second-term agenda. Arrangements were made so TV cameras would pan to the faces of victims of gun violence in the House galleries.

MILLER: Speaker Pelosi redux

- The Washington Times

Expect President Obama to use his primetime State of the Union address Tuesday to blame the GOP for all the nation's ills in the hopes of convincing voters to oust them in 2014. He knows the most extreme of the liberal items on his agenda can't get through the legislative process unless Rep. Nancy Pelosi retakes the speaker's gavel.

MILLER: Obama's insatiable appetite for taxes

- The Washington Times

President Obama has a way to delay the across-the-board $85 billion sequestration scheduled for March 1. His not-so-surprising proposal is to raise taxes so he can spend more. Fortunately, the GOP is not going along with this tired, old plan.

MILLER: Hollywood's anti-gun show comes to D.C.

- The Washington Times

Nothing adds pizazz to a tired policy issue in Washington like flying in celebrities for a news conference. Gun-control advocates have been losing legislative steam since the Newtown, Conn., tragedy, so they called on the glitterati to brighten their case before the Capitol hallways on Wednesday.
