Obama's veil of secrecy is pierced
Topic - Jon Carson
President Obama's presidential campaign's newest incarnation, a nonprofit intended to mobilize volunteers and use their donations to prop up his bully pulpit, raised a paltry $4.8 million, constrained by its reversal under criticism of its intention to collect money from corporations.
The talk is a call to arms — and a cultural indicator that Republicans and conservatives should note. Democrats are borrowing a page from the tea party playbook, using dramatic language and historic reference. But this message is not from heartland folk. It is a contrivance from the most loyal of President Obama's loyalists.
It did not take long for agenda to muscle in on a historical moment.
The White House has responded to last year's rash of secession petitions, and no, President Obama has not agreed to allow any of the states to secede.
"We can pass legislation that helps prevent future gun violence — we just can't back down now,"
"As President Obama said, these events are too common. We all stand numb, trying to wrap our minds around another tragedy that breaks our hearts," OFA's executive director Jon Carson wrote. "Yet, even though 9 in ten Americans have said they support common-sense measures that would prevent gun violence, Congress has failed to act."
