The Spin Doctors Are Spinning Fast

With the continuing revelations that 'Fast and Furious' wasn't just a BATFE foul-up, involving even more higher ups in the DOJ and that the same thing seems to have been going on in Florida, the 'O' administration is doing everything they can to wag the dog.
"As you know, the President directed the Attorney General to form working groups with key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve Americans' safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Thursday.

"That process is well underway at the Department of Justice with stakeholders on all sides working through these complex issues. And we expect to have some more specific announcements in the near future."

Carney didn't say how soon those announcements would come, nor what they might entail.

Let's take bets on how desperate they're going to get in their attempts to keep even a few of the groups they've thrown under the bus the last three years.

That they can manage that kind of spinning speaks well of their semi-circular canals, but rather less well of their intellectual honesty.

"common-sense measures" - ridiculously dysfunctional gun control schemes

"improve Americans' safety and security" - reduce our safety and security by unconstitutionally infringing our Second Amendment rights

"while fully respecting Second Amendment rights" - while ignoring Second Amendment rights

Why doesn't Obama's spokesliar just preface his remarks by saying that he means the opposite of everything he says? Because there's no such thing as an honest spokesliar, so he'd be out of a job, that's why.
The Marxist propensity for standing the truth on its head is very active with the Obama administration.

Obama's administration got caught so now the law abiding gun owners are going to pay. More infringement no matter the the 2nd Amendment says "shall not be infringed".

Also, they're probably very worried about the polls that indicate "You're out at the next election", so want to try to shove things through now.

Isn't "common-sense" the same means absolutely nothing but whatever we want it to mean propaganda espoused by the Brady Bunch and the Joyce Foundation and its minions?

I wonder who Obama is working for?

They would have done better to find something other than "gun control" to wag, both because of the congruency with Gunwalker, and because you know some dumbass is going to use the "Americans are giving guns to Mexico" line as a reason to enact more laws... They are just too heavily programmed.
