i·de·o·logue - Smug and self satisfied in their certitudes, Ideologue’s opinions are merely a loose collection of intellectual conceits, and he is genuinely astonished, bewildered and and indignant that his views are not universally embraced as the Truth. He regards the opposing point of view as a form of cognitive dissonance whose only cure is relentless propagandizing and browbeating.
….” I think the vast majority of the American people are skeptical that [armed guards in schools] somehow is going to solve our problem,”….
Yet, No, he’s not an “ideologue”…. or so he says. President Obama continues to make claims that are out of touch with the Majority Of Americans….. Even recent polling shows that what he just said is congnitively and intellectually false. 64% of Americans totally disagree with President Obama.
(Reuters) – President Barack Obama said in an interview broadcast on Sunday he hopes to get new U.S. gun control measures passed during the first year of his second term and is skeptical of a proposal by the National Rifle Association (NRA) gun lobby to put armed guards in schools.
Obama assigned Vice President Joe Biden to lead a task force to come up with proposals on guns at the beginning of 2013 after the massacre of 20 children and six adults by a gunman at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, this month.
“I’d like to get it done in the first year. I will put forward a very specific proposal based on the recommendations that Joe Biden’s task force is putting together as we speak. And so this is not something that I will be putting off,” Obama told NBC’s “Meet the Press” in an interview taped on Saturday.
“I am not going to prejudge the recommendations that are given to me. I am skeptical that the only answer is putting more guns in schools. And I think the vast majority of the American people are skeptical that that somehow is going to solve our problem,” he said. (more)
No, actually Mr. President, it is YOU that is out-of-touch.
