President pushing bogus statistic says gun lobby ‘willfully lied’


Says the guy who kept repeating the 40% lie. RT @antderosa: “The gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill” – President Obama

Obama says pro-2A advocates “willfully lied.” WaPo awarded him “3 Pinocchios” for his repeated false claims on background check data.

President Obama gave the Senate a scolding in the Rose Garden this afternoon, declaring today’s defeat of the Manchin-Toomey background check amendment “a pretty shameful day for Washington.” He blamed “politics” for the failure of the legislation and, while standing alongside Gabby Giffords and tearful Newtown families, dismissed charges that he had used people as props for “emotional blackmail.”

With props or no props? MT @edhenrytv: Obama in Rose Garden at 530pm ET to blast Senate for failing to approve enhanced background checks

Obama is using human props at his Gun Vote presser.

Obama: some said families lobbying was emotional blackmail do we think those whose lives are shattered by gun violence donthaverttoweighin?

Earlier this month, President Obama said the gun control debate was not about politics. The president today said it is.

Obama, on some people saying he’s been using Newtown families as a prop in the gun debate: “Are they serious?”

Emily Miller of the Washington Times has made no secret of her status as a “bitter clinger,” and she challenged the president to enumerate the lies he thinks riled the tiny but “intense minority” of gun owners who opposed the legislation.

Obama blames “distortion of Senate rules” for all his gun-control legislation failing. Actually, that was regular order.

Obama claims “gun lobby and allies willfully lied about the bill.” Show me where anyone lied.

— Emily Miller (@EmilyMiller) April 17, 2013

He’s lying, of course RT‏@emilymiller Obama claims “gun lobby and allies willfully lied about the bill.” Show me where anyone lied. #nra

Well, there was that one widely circulated lie about 40 percent of gun sales not going through background checks. Is it not a lie if the White House prefaces it with FACT in all capital letters?

Obama asks us, who is gun-control bill failure a victory for? I’ll answer: the US constitution, freedom, common sense. 

— Emily Miller (@EmilyMiller) April 17, 2013

Obama says his gun-control bills could save “one life.” Actually, more guns leads to LESS crime. In every case.

“@toddstarnes: Obama: “The gun lobby and their allies willfully lied.” Um — yeah. Let’s talk about liars, Mr. President.” #truth

HAHA oh the irony of Obama saying they “willfully lied about the bill”

— Jim(@Jcsteel) April 17, 2013

Shall we make a list of all the times Obama has ‘willfully’ lied? Seriously… he use the Sandy Hook families. Infringed means something.

— Pamela (@pamelakarnbach) April 17, 2013

@whitehouse obama up there with his usual prop’s crying and talking about how the nra lied? really? the same guy who lied about benghazi?

— joe republic (@joerepublic1) April 17, 2013

Pretty rich listening to Obama whine about those who’ve lied about legislation. Nobody lied more than he did abt Obamacare.

— Liz Buddie (@lizbuddie) April 17, 2013

Kinda like Obama lied about Benghazi? “@ap: BREAKING: Obama says gun lobby and its allies ‘willfully lied’ about background check bill”

— Saige Dane (@SaigeDane) April 17, 2013

Does Obama REALLY want to play the who lied game? Sequester lies anyone??? That is just a START … he doesn’t want to go there!
