Ok, Loretta, now be a good little girl…
Now that I issued these meaningless executive orders on gun control, I need you to do something for me.
I need you to grovel before Congress and ask for money so we can implement this executive order.
That, in a nutshell, is what Obama is asking his “girl”, Attorney General Loretta Lynch to do for him:
Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Wednesday defended President Obama’s recent executive actions on gun control and called on Congress to fund the staff necessary to uphold the law.
Lynch argued Obama’s proposals clarify and enhance existing laws rather than create new ones. She also responded to Republican criticism that the actions would do little to stop those who obtained guns in recent high-profile killings, such as the San Bernardino shooting (the guns used were obtained legally through a friend) and at Sandy Hook Elementary (where the shooter took the guns from his mom).
The attorney general told lawmakers the White House proposals are incremental steps to make it harder for criminals to get guns but that they stop far short of infringing on the constitutional rights of gun owners.
“I have complete confidence that the common sense steps announced by the president are lawful,” Lynch said in a Senate Appropriations hearing on funding for the gun measures.. “They are consistent with the Constitution as interpreted by the Supreme Court and the laws passed by Congress.”
Doesn’t this show how weak Obama is on the gun control issue?
He knows if he proposes gun control legislation it will go no where.
So he sends his new AG to Congress to beg for money after he issues a do-nothing executive order.
It’s all “let’s stop these mass shootings” theater.
