WSJ/NBC Poll Shows Support for NRA
Wall Street Journal, by Alicia Mundy

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/18/2013 5:46:29 AM

In the midst of a ferocious battle with the president over gun control in America, the National Rifle Association continues to have more supporters than detractors, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. According to the poll, the NRA enjoys 41% positive approval rating, with a 34% negative rating. That compares with 41% positive and 29% negative in January 2011. The NRA has been in the spotlight after the December massacre of 20 children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Conn. NRA executive Wayne LaPierre proposed putting armed guard in schools —

Classic Sun Tzu. Try to build the illusion that your forces are stronger than they really are while attempting to convince the enemy forces that they are weaker than they are so they will not fight. The lies from the White House are so flagrant as to be ridiculous.

But it only works if the enemy has a choice. This is a must-win battle for the NRA and for real Americans.

Obama and the media got more than they bargained for with the NRA. They hit back hard and wiped the smirk off their faces. I wish our limp wrist Republican pols could learn something from it.

Never let a crisis go to waste.

Pass some new laws. Don´t stop to think or explain how these laws would have stopped the most recent tragedy that you are exploiting. Don´t think or explain that the items you want to ban ("assault" rifles), are used in only a relative handful of crimes each year. That´s not the point.

The point is to exploit the emotional shock and go on to the next teir of restrictions. Of course that won´t work, which will leave the door open for the next round of restrictions when the next big tragedy occurs.

I´m beginning to see a pattern here.....

Again... don´t believe any of the polls issued by the MSM. People vote with their feet and wallets. I signed up again with the NRA yesterday. I consider that a patriotic political donation.

Obama can issue all of the Executive Orders he wants, but who will pay any attention to them, and for that matter, who will enforce them. As far as the so called Justice Department goes, when Holder turns himself in for authorizing wholesale murder in Mexico, I might just start believing in our legal system once again.

Be afraid. Be VERY afraid. The uptick in the negative rating might indicate that the socialist in chiefs propaganda campaign, aided and abetted by the complicit media, is gaining traction. There are millions of stupid people in this country. Surely, not all 0bama´s votes came from the long-dead, the illegals, or those being bused from poll to poll by the SEIU and ACORN ballot-box stuffers.

Make no mistake, it was the NRA that stopped Obama from making the speech and the EO´s that he wanted to make during that pathetic press conference. He was going to use the word ´confiscate´ but had to back away from it.

What if he had used it? I should have been the trigger for articles of inpeachment. Would it have been? Would our pathetically weak Republican Party have arisin to the occasion? I don´t not trust that they would. Only three out of the 535 have said that they would. No checks and balances in any of the three branches of government. We are living in very dangerous times.

I have never belonged to the NRA, but I think the time has come. They saved us for a little while, but Obama will be back again for more of our freedoms next week. He won´t quit until he succeeds. He must be stopped, yet no one in Congress or the Judiciary will do it. Thank you NRA for doing what our Congress Critters should have done. The Constitution should be a bipartisian endeavor. We are in a period of history when it isn´t.

I stil have that pistol within reach most of the time. Obama is a gutless, treasonous coward. He is a bully that hides behind the Secret Service. He should be impeached on grounds of high crimes against the American people and the Constitution. I tell you that I am so fed up that I am ready to pick up my rifle and march on Washington.

I just wish the NRA would understand that every time they endorse a democrat, regardless of the personal views of the democrat regarding the second amendment, it is only empowering the NRA´s enemy. All too often, it appears that the occasional democrat support for the right of freedom loving Americans to have the means to defend themselves from criminals and tyranny, is politically motivated, politically expedient, and temporary.

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching.
