Obama says won't campaign for any Democrat who doesn't back gun reforms

President Barack Obama said on Thursday that he will not campaign for Democrats who don't back gun reforms, part of his effort to make tougher gun laws a cause in the November 2016 presidential and congressional elections.

"I will not campaign for, vote for or support any candidate, even in my own party, who does not support common-sense gun reform," Obama wrote in an op-ed column in the New York Times.

"All of us need to demand leaders brave enough to stand up to the gun lobby’s lies," Obama wrote. "All of us need to demand that governors, mayors and our representatives in Congress do their part."

Awww.. I should have left a link.. you're right Hekate.. Hawaii!



Oh I like that one! Can I pass it on?

Excellent! One Two Punch for Democracy and Historically speaking! This>>>>>>>>>

"But now? “I’ve travelled the world after Barack Obama—it’s cool to be American again, baby,” he said with a laugh. “People don’t know how much that means to citizens like us, who are in a celebrity position, who represents the country through our culture and through our art.”

Yet we hear from posters on this very board that President Obama has brought us down in how people view the US.

They're so hysterical.. like anyone with any knowledge at all would believe their obvious agenda.

Such a well deserved honor for Rep John Lewis.. I love what President Obama's Sec of

Navy had to say about him..

"As the first of its class, the future USNS John Lewis will play a vital role in the mission of our Navy and Marine Corps while also forging a new path in fleet replenishment," Mabus said. "Naming this ship after John Lewis is a fitting tribute to a man who has, from his youth, been at the forefront of progressive social and human rights movements in the U.S., directly shaping both the past and future of our nation."


Thank you, Blue_Tires!

So glad Hillary is not afraid to take on the NRA.

Excellent quote from Hillary, she! Thank you for posting it here in Hill's Group~

“Just because it’s hard, that’s no excuse not to try”

“Yes, it will be hard, and it won’t happen overnight. It won’t happen during this Congress. It won’t happen during my presidency. But a lot of things don’t happen overnight. A woman’s right to vote didn’t happen overnight. The liberation of African Americans didn’t happen overnight. LGBT rights — that was decades’ worth of work. So just because it’s hard, that’s no excuse not to try.

And if you have any doubt as to why you should feel that “fierce urgency of now,” think about what happened three weeks ago. Zaevion Dobson was a sophomore at Fulton High School in Knoxville, Tennessee. He played football; beloved by his classmates and his teachers. His own mayor called him one of their city’s success stories. The week before Christmas, he headed to a friend’s house to play video games. He wasn’t in the wrong place at the wrong time. He hadn’t made a bad decision. He was exactly where any other kid would be. Your kid. My kids. And then gunmen started firing. And Zaevion — who was in high school, hadn’t even gotten started in life — dove on top of three girls to shield them from the bullets. And he was shot in the head. And the girls were spared. He gave his life to save theirs –- an act of heroism a lot bigger than anything we should ever expect from a 15-year-old. “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

We are not asked to do what Zaevion Dobson did. We’re not asked to have shoulders that big; a heart that strong; reactions that quick. I’m not asking people to have that same level of courage, or sacrifice, or love. But if we love our kids and care about their prospects, and if we love this country and care about its future, then we can find the courage to vote. We can find the courage to get mobilized and organized. We can find the courage to cut through all the noise and do what a sensible country would do.

That’s what we’re doing today. And tomorrow, we should do more. And we should do more the day after that. And if we do, we’ll leave behind a nation that’s stronger than the one we inherited and worthy of the sacrifice of a young man like Zaevion.”


"Thank you, President Obama, for taking a crucial step forward on gun violence. Our next president has to build on that progress—not rip it away." - Hillary Clinton

Thank you so much, Hillary~
