Obama - First a big stick, now a gun?

First Obama threatened Congress with a big stick if they opposed his nanny-state universal healthcare initiative, now he's threatening to one-up GOP weaponry. Yes, I know it's just a metaphor, but it's ironic coming from Barack guns are bad m'kay Obama.

At a Philly fundraiser on Friday Obama commented,
"If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."

Wait! Didn't Obama have this to say about CCW earlier this year? Does it only apply to us citizens and not to "The Messiah?" Of course Obama is spouting the same tired doomsday bullshit that we've heard for 30 years regarding CCW.

"I am not in favor of concealed weapons," Obama said. "I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could (get shot during) altercations."

So he's against CCW, but plans to "bring a gun" in order to threaten the GOP? Maybe someone should tell him he can't carry in his home state of Illinois or in Philly. Does he have a FOID card? Maybe he's just planning to snatch a pistol off one of his armed bodyguards?

EDIT - It's probably worthwhile to mention that this is the same Barack Obama who has promised a "new kind of politics" free of the usual dirty personal attacks etc. etc. The comments he's been making of late sure sound like politics as usual to me.

its amazing how people that are incapable of being peaceful and non aggressive... are the first ones to advocate banning guns... i guess they dont trust themselves with one, so no one should have one...
