President “Thin Skin” Obama Gets Feathers Ruffled when ABC’s Jake Tapper Asks Question at Obama Gun Safety Question … “This Is Not the First Incident of Horrific Gun Violence of your 4 Years – Where’ve you been?” … Obama, “I don’t think I’ve been on vacation.”

 

LOST IN SMALLNESS: THE VACATIONER IN CHIEF: What Presidential leadership … Obama gets defensive when asked a tough question by the media regarding gun safety at his “gun safety” press conference in the wake of the Sandy Hill Elementary School shootings. Actually Mr. President, YOU HAVE BEEN ON VACATION!

ABC’s Jake Tapper held President Barack Obama’s feet to the fire and chastised him while asking the president where he has been in the past four years when it comes to gun violence.  As stated at the Daily Caller, suddenly Obama has a newfound concern over gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hill Elementary School shooting that left 26 dead, including 20 children between the ages of 6 and 7 years old.

“It seems to a lot of observers that you made the political calculation in 2008 in your first term and 2012 not to talk about gun violence,” Tapper said during the noon White House press conference. “You had your position on renewing the ban on semi-automatic rifles that then-Sen. Biden put into place, but you didn’t do much about it. This is not the first incident of horrific gun violence of your four years. Where have you been?”

Obama thin skinned and defense answer: “Well, here’s where I’ve been, Jake. I’ve been President of the United States dealing with the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, an auto industry on the verge of collapse, two wars. I don’t think I’ve been on vacation.”

Hmm, strange choice of words. Obama makes this vacation reference as he is about to take a 20 day vacation in Hawaii.  Not been on vacation eh, Mr. President? In your first term as president Obama has played over 100 round of golf. Not been on vacation, you mean like the non-vacations that you have not been on listed below?

I guess Barack Obama must have thought it no big deal after the mass shootings in Tuscan, AZ, Mass Shooting at Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, the James Holmes ‘Dark Night Rising’ Movie Massacre and the Oregon mall shooting.  Doesn’t it make you wonder how the 2012 or even the 2008 presidential elections would have turned out if the MSM had always asked Barack Obama tough questions and held him accountable?

      [...] got defense about a question regarding mass murder violence during his first term. Obama stated, “I don’t think I’ve been on vacation.” It appears that is exactly just where you have been. How can any president just head off on vacation [...]
