Bob Schieffer said today that Obama’s gun control speech was one of his best ever speeches, saying we absolutely must do something about these massacres like Newtown or we’re not the country that we once were. And in that vein, he also compared taking on what he called the ‘gun lobby’ (aka NRA) to defeating racism, Osama bin Laden, and the Nazis in WWII, saying surely these were more formidable tasks.
Levin roasted him for this, calling him a ‘Potemkin journalist’ and a clapping seal that just needs a ball to balance on his nose. But more substantively, Levin pointed out that we can’t even control murder in our prisons, let alone on the streets in our cities. Yet Scheiffer, being a full advocate for Obama just doesn’t care about these facts.
