Obama’s skeet-shooting hypocrisy.

Obama’s skeet-shooting hypocrisy.

The White House released a picture of President Obama skeet shooting; when will the young American President stop trying to be “all things to all people,” and start governing the nation?

A picture of President Obama, a novice shooting skeet that was designed to convey a message to those supporting gun ownership that he, the President of the United States, has interest in guns, and in shooting. The NRA scoffed at the picture, and experts immediately his stance as that of a novice.

Obama’s first term did not display staler performance, and was often the President giving up on important ideas in favor of expediency, not what a leader should do.

After four years of mediocraty, it may be time for the President to start to lead, establish priorities, and become the person that he can be.

Even though the gun issue should not interfere with the President’s two top priorities, security, and the economy, it can play a major role in helping establish a character forf the President.

This may be the time to shed off the Capitulator in Chief (C.i.C.) image, an dbecome a real, authentic Commander in Chief (C.i.C.), the nation would welcome such a transformation. To start with, President Obama may say:

“I respect the second amendment! As a person who studied the constitution, and with all due respect to the Supreme Court, I do not accept the SCOTUS broad view of the second amendment. I do cannot accept the second amendment to mean that each citizen has the right to own any arm.
people of these United States should have the right to bear arms, but to do so within boundaries that protect the many over the few.
I am not a gun lover even though, at ‘we the people’ largess I had the opportunity to do some skeet shooting while at Camp David. I found it to be a pleasant experience and I now understand why so many people like guns, and shooting. With that knowledge on hand I shall encourage legislation that would allow Americans to own weapons, but to have that right under reasonable rules to protect the entire populous.”

I do not expect the President to shed off his “political-skin,” but I would suggest that he should stop being hypocritical, call things as the see them, and start to lead. The gun issue may be a very good launching pad for a new Obama, the leader, not the hypocritical capitulator that he has been.
