    I’m a little late, but catching up via my DVR. Not sure how much of this I can watch – depends on how the audience acts/reacts. Anderson the ambulance chaser might come in handy, because open-minded sane people will compare his “thought process” to the President’s, and see there’s no freakin’ comparison.

    Had to mute the town hall recording for a little bit, and – just seeing the President’s annoyed look at one point – think I’ll keep it muted. President Obama can handle this, but I’m not sure I can.

    Too bad George W Bush didn’t have a town hall on whether or not we should have gone into Iraq. He wouldn’t have had the guts.

      Not only fearless, He calmly and cogently pushes back on their “arguments” and once educates these frickin yahoos and drills down beyond their talking points to show that there’s no there there. They think that they just can stand up on national television ( like this gun range owner from from San Rafeal), spout a talking point’ like that’s winning point that ends the discussion. Thankful that the President says, nope sorry dude this ain’t the forum where you are just going to get up, spout nonsense and not get a response back OR get the last word in. It’s also a master class for any media person on just how you effectively push back on this nonsense.

    Anderson Cooper asking PBO if it is fair of him to call people’s fear of his taking their guns away a conspiracy? I loved his strong answer Yes, it is a conspiracy and his following answer.

    Random thoughts.

    More than 60 percent of the gun deaths in this country are suicides. Anderson Cooper’s older brother committed suicide, in his 20s, by jumping off a 14th-floor terrace. Apples and oranges, but the same result: somebody’s loved one, lost. Wouldn’t one think that Anderson Cooper might already be a proponent of getting guns off the streets, because of the result he and his family felt personally? Where’s the empathy in this country? Where’s the “I am my brother’s keeper” on the streets of America? Why doesn’t everyone stand up and be counted, especially those already affected by senseless killings and suicides – which, technically, could be said to be all of us, because it’s our country? Polls, schmolls. Let’s do this, America. Get behind our President.

    Time for Dr. Maddow and news about Il Douche’s town hall.

    • January 7, 2016 at 9:28 pm

      I agree NCLB…as soon as I heard the tone of the follow-up discussion, I immediately looked for the remote and began clicking. I often wonder what these people are responding to because they obviously weren’t listening to what was actually said.

      I wanted to slap the crap out of Anderson Cooper for POB. I could barely watch, but I feel that I just have to keep his back. Tired. We all are just emotionally drained, but WE WILL continue to keep our President in our goodness space and pray for wisdom daily.HZ
