Jake Tapper grills Obama on why he didn’t push for gun legislation in last 3 years

Obama got real defensive today when asked by Jake Tapper “Where have you been?” on not doing anything on toughening gun laws over the last 3 years despite horrific violence occurring several times. Of course, we all know the answer since Obama is little more than a political entity, but just watch his face as he attempts to answer this probing question:

Massive kudos to Jake Tapper, but he better watch out or he might wake up to a dead fish beside him.

    Silly Jake, Zero was too busy overseeing the walking of guns across the border into Mexico to be bothered with gun control concerns.

    • Not4TheGimmeParty

      Let us not forget running guns in Libya too….the only gun control Obama wants is disarming citizens of the U.S. while he arms our enemies.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        A disarmed populace is a controlled and oppressed populace.

  • There is so much to criticize here……

    Jake, what about Benghazi? You wrote a book on our young military men; does this not bother you enough to pursue?

    Jake, why a question about limiting rights as a positive, shouldn’t our people be armed to protect themselves in situation here, that may be defensive, just like our military men have to defend themselves overseas.

    Tapper deserves no credit until he elects to stand for the American people over the State media.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Another thing I would have liked Tapper to ask Zero was how he viewed the Fort Hood shooting as well.

      • True- it feels like we are being trained to believe inaction is action.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Spot on… though I think he insinuated it. I’d like this to be right out in the open and frankly, Jake should have went for it. Obama is a petulent child and he would have wet himself right there and then. Darkness cannot tolerate the light or the truth.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          I think the guy in the Fort Hood shooting gets a pass because he’s a Muslim and after all, Zero gets a h*rd-on for Muslims.

          • All of y’all’s conversation reminded me of something Herman Cain posted on facebook earlier tonight:

            Today the Army decided to seek the death penalty in the case of SSG Bales who murdered civilians in Afghanistan.

            Three weeks ago the Army relieved the Military Judge from the Maj Nidal Hasan case and decided Hasan could keep his jihadist beard. You’ll recall Maj Hasan shot 43 American soldiers and Department of the Army civilians, killing 13 three years ago and yet we are still nowhere close to a trial.

            A Marine combat veteran sits in a Mexican jail on bogus charges and the State Department tells the parents they can do nothing…and the White House Press Secretary has never heard of it.

            This is the crazy, mixed-up world we live in. And America just voted for four more years.

            🙁 Dear leader has so much to answer for… only problem is, none of the lap dogs are ever going to ask nor are the spineless wonders in congress. This whole government makes me sick.

            • PatrickHenrysBody

              Just wait. After another four years of Zero, this country will be unrecognizable.

              • I know. 🙁

              • Orangeone

                We the People have the opportunity to stop that and revitalize our own country.

            • WordsFailMe

              “All of y’all’s …?”

              Does that include everbody and Uncle Bob?

              You are getting real Americanized there sweetheart! hehehe

              • It especially includes Uncle Bob!! 😀 Mornin’ Words! You couldn’t give me a better compliment there. ((()))s

                • WordsFailMe

                  Probably over the next ten years, you’ll begin to drop the prepositional introductory term, “of,” which is still slightly north of Mason-Dixon and simply use the more familiar form– “All y’all’s…”

                  YOU’RE LOOKING GREAT, DUCK!

                • LOL. Yeah, I’ve still got a little too much northern accent in my typing. If you heard me talk, then it would’a come out right.
                  I’m so glad to see you Words. 🙂 PS, since we’re on the topic, Merry Christmas!! One of my favorites lol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LY6faeqDht4

            • Sober_Thinking

              And Obama is going to cut (distribute) funds from the military to other places…

              He’s quite transparent now. And I’m stunned that EVERYONE doesn’t recognize treason when he wears it like a badge.

              He’s a monster.

              • Yes, it goes to show how so many people have no clue what a treasonous ba$tard looks like. He’s diabolical and people don’t have a clue. 🙁

                • Orangeone

                  If people are wise enough to follow history and Time’s Person of the Year, they will understand. What do Stalin, Hitler and Obama have in common? You got it, all Time’s Persons of the Year and all responsible for the murder of innocents.

                  Let’s look at some others: FDR (ignored the genocide in Nazi Germany), Jimmy Carter (Iran hostage crisis), Richard Nixon (Watergate), Bill Clinton (I never had sex with that woman).

                  It’s just another worthless fishwrapper.

            • Orangeone

              I saw that too sis, great post here to share with Scoopers!

          • Sober_Thinking

            That’s true… sickening.

  • Jack Tapper is one of the few actual journalist out there. Kudos!

  • Good question, Jake! Hit ‘im with another one! Or two! Or three! 🙂

    • Orangeone

      Jake, why no follow up on the “I’ve not been on vacation”. How many billions have been spent on their “date nights” and “vacations”, how many golf outings while people lost their jobs, homes and had to go on food stamps. Jake, I propose tinlizzie give you a journalism lesson!

  • Sober_Thinking

    And after Obama’s unpresidential, temper tantrum – and that’s what it might as well have been – he didn’t even answer the question.

    Obama is a spoiled brat… and why shouldn’t he be? Lemmings, morons and moochers pulled out the chair to the big boy table once again for him. Obama is a punk and is incapable of showing any compassion or leadership whatsoever. He is a complete waste of skin. Epic fail.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    Okay, this may be off-topic a little. I don’t know. However, lefty gun grabbers harp about the looks and the feel of certain weapons, which they think classify weapons as being “assault weapons” or “weapons of mass destruction”. How a weapon looks does not an assault weapon make. Decreasing the capacity of magazines/clips will not decrease gun crime. In the hands of an expert shooter, several magazines can be emptied and inserted in a matter of seconds, no matter what the capacity. A lever-action rifle (like in the Western movies) can be loaded and fired in a matter of seconds as well. Criminals by definition BREAK THE LAW, that is why they are called criminals. Gun control laws, as well as other laws will simply be ignored by criminals. This is something lefty gun control advocates fail to acknowledge or don’t want to acknowledge because facts nullify their arguments. Also, in order to own a fully automatic weapon, one must pass checks by the FBI and BATFE, as well as register with both law enforcement agencies. You then have to pay money for a firearms license, which is nothing compared to the cost of a fully automatic weapon, which can be $10K plus per weapon. Anyway, the link to the video:


  • So let’s see…his excuses were:
    1. He’s been President of the United States
    2. Worst economy since the Great Depression
    3. Auto Industry on the verge of collapse
    4. Two wars
    5. Umm…I don’t think I’ve been on vacation (boy, that was a real HOOT when he said that one…)

    So now tell me which excuse didn’t effect Bush as well, given that after 9/11 Bush had the WORST TERRORIST ATTACK IN HISTORY (which was brought upon our entire economic sector and crippled our economy) and subsequently began fighting two wars (the same wars Obama blames for HIS inaction), and the auto industry was STILL on the verge of collapse (although doing better than before Obozo got a hold of it and started crunching out Chevy Volts…).

    So now, tell me Obama…how are you in any way better than us Republicans, since we managed all your excuses and more?!?

    • Forever the victim- I screamed at my PC monitor once I heard the record player repeat the same thing I’ve heard the last 4 years.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      The Excuse-Maker-in-Chief’s reruns are getting quite boring and tiresome. If he isn’t outright blaming somebody for his f-ups, he attempts to shift the blame to somebody else. Pathetic. I can’t wait for another four years of this foolishness.

      • Orangeone

        But pathetically no follow up from Tapper on any of them. No inquiry about why ObamaCare was put ahead of the economy, etc.

        • Wisewoman2

          That’s because the chicken *ss walked away emphasizing that that was the last question. A real grown up would have stayed for at least one more question to attempt to show that that particular question did not piss him off. Not this petulant child.

    • toongoon

      Hear, hear Brian!

    • I was expecting the room to explode into snickers after the vacation bit.

      • Orangeone

        Not from that lapdog media. If it had been working Americans, yes.

    • WordsFailMe

      This lazy, lying sack of s was born to be a politician.

    • NYGino

      He’s “better” because the Criminally Negligent media says he is.

  • PVG

    Keep our children safe? Oh, IF they survive their first 9 months you mean………CHARLATAN!

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Exactly. In his eyes, safety is only applicable if the child is out of the womb and breathing for a couple of years. Zero is a member of the movement that espouses eugenics, population control, etc. etc. When he came before the American people and spoke of kids who wouldn’t get to play in ball games, graduate high school, marry, and have kids of their own, it made my stomach turn. Especially the having kids of their own part. Merely a show for the adoring media and mind-numbed Obama followers.

      • Excellent comments, and Patrick Henry is my Favorite Founder. Welcome to The Right Scoop.

      • Wisewoman2

        The *sshole is so far out there that he is not even aware of the fact that the aborted babies will not have those opportunities either. I truly detest the man.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          Quite right. Of course, a lot selectively escapes Zero’s attention.

  • “It’s not like I’ve been on vacation” AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!
    What a pathetic loser!!!!

  • PFFV

    I have never held such disdain for any man or ideology as I do for Obama and his Socialist Mentality that Government is The Solution to all Mankind’s Problems!

    Our Politicians are NOT – Preserving – Protecting – or Defending the United States Constitution as they Swore an Oath to Do!

    The Republicans (90% or so) are the same as Democrat’s, with a few exceptions to Tea Party Politicians.

    If we don’t cut spending dramatically and very soon (Obama will never do this) the U.S. Dollar will collapse and I predict it will happen before the next Presidential Election.

    God Help our Nation Full of Mindless Drones to Snap Out of Their State of Idiocy!

    The Clock is Ticking…..

    • Orangeone

      Hitler was the solution too. How well did that work out for 12 million people?

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        That was his “final solution”.

        • Orangeone

          That’s what frightens me. The similarities between Hitler and Obama are terrifying.

          • PatrickHenrysBody

            Where do you think Hitler got his sterilization ideas from?


            Zero and the whole “progressive” movement daily sing the praises of Margaret Sanger. Zero concerned about the safety of children above and beyond our Second Amendment rights? Bah!

            • Orangeone

              Absolutely Yikes!

  • Obama: We have GOT to keep our children safe! Except the…uh…ones we leave on a table to die after the botched abortions, of course.

  • ryanomaniac

    If he says “The greatest recession since the Great Depression” I’m gonna lose it. How many times can a person use this as an excuse for EVERYTHING! What does that have to do with guns? My gosh, think of something else would ya?

    • WordsFailMe

      The next four years is going to be full of the funniest, little moron lines we’ve ever heard. Can’t wait for the news every day.

      • PatrickHenrysBody


  • Rocco11

    Keep a close eye on Jacob, he’ll be looking to make amends rapidly or he’ll end up in the Mark Halperin re-education camp.

  • WordsFailMe

    I don’t know Jake, I am afraid that your bold questioning may have awakened the sleeping thumb-sucker.

  • colliemum

    “Massive kudos to Jake Tapper, but he better watch out or he might wake up to a dead fish beside him.” – or he may not wake up at all.
    Did you see the POS’s cold, evil eyes? Not a glimmer of empathy, just hate in them. That is the true POS – not the fake-teary one the corrupt meejah are celebrating.

    I pray every day that he be delivered up to God’s Judgment.

    • WordsFailMe


  • Yes, God forbid anybody asks Obama a REAL question at one of these political events. They ceased to be “press conferences” as soon as he was elected back in 2008. Now they are mostly worship sessions for the mainstream media. So good for Tapper for asking a real question. Now I only wish somebody would ask him a real question about Libya. Also asking for a real question on Fast and Furious would be asking way too much, I know.

  • chatterbox365

    Jake Tapper should start packing heat.

    This is just another ploy for the inept Administration to distract people from the real problem…our imploding economy.

    • Orangeone

      Likely does. But of course anywhere near Barky Boy is a gun-free zone and we know what they make result in….

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Hey, obozo, if you can’t stand the heat in the Oval Office………………….

    • Orangeone

      If I may offer a finishing touch….I hear they are looking to expand rhetoric in Kenya

  • bongobear

    Seems to me he’s failed miserably on all of his “makin’ sure” issues. The only thing he seemed to be interested in “makin’ sure” of the last 3 1/2 years was his re-election.

  • Sandra123456

    Barry can’t handle more than 5 or 6 things in 4 years doncha know?

    He had to get health care in place to handle bullet wounds before he could do anything about gun control. See you have to understand the liberal thought process…


    …how many ROUNDS of GOLF ?”


    …JOE WHO ?”

    Did he basically say that it’s Bush’s fault?

  • stevenbiot

    I wonder if “Daddy to all American children” cares about saddling the youth with a mountain of debt?

  • StrangernFiction

    Tapper is the crumb, and we are the peasants.

  • Maybe I’m wrong, but I think Jake has a simmering anger and it slipped out with that question. Once O started ‘reminding’ Jake of ‘where’ he’d been, Jake was nodding his head like a bobble who remembered where his breadcrumb stories came from. I just hope that there are other journalists out there that are po’d by the lies, cover-ups, and dishonesty, that will start to ask the hard questions. Where are those newspapers that backed Romney? I keep waiting on them to start a grassroots effort to investigate everything O is doing.

    • Orangeone

      Those newspapers went back underground….

  • joyfulgiver

    running guns…now this…Chinese Government calls for Americans to be disarmed. Personally, I’m disgusted with the photo opportunities the admin has taken with this horrific tragedy. They should be ashamed of themselves! The media needs to get the heck out of there and allow those suffering (the entire community) to mourn their losses.


    • PatrickHenrysBody

      The Chinese can go to hell as far as I’m concerned. They own part of our debt. Now they are so arrogant that they feel it’s their prerogative to tell us what to do while they are bolstering their military for coming aggression. Of course, they are experts at gun control because if their citizenry were armed, that would mean a falling from power for their thug bosses and the last thing they want to do is empower their own people. It pains me that we have association with those totalitarian a-holes.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Is it a coincidence that Jake Tapper today has a new employer or do you suppose this change had been in the works prior to him grilling Oloser…..”Where have you been on gun control for the last four years?”

  • “I don’t think I’ve been on vacation” is he flippen kidding.. wow all he did the last four years is spending billions on vacations!!!!!!!!!!!!
