Oh Wait, Maybe There WASN'T Overwhelming Support For That Gun Bill....

Stop acting surprised, media clowns. The alleged 90% support Obama kept parroting about was for 'some sort of background check reform', NOT specifically for this bureaucratic and counter-productive clusterfuck. 47% angry or disappointed lines up nicely with the general proportion of Americans who think we need more gun control, and it turns out the politicians who oppose it saw through Obama's tear-baiting and realized that number hadn't changed. You lose, Mr. President; and you kind of suck at politics if you really expected this to work.
