In the case of our President’s most recent bald-faced lie simple misinterpretation, however, I feel compelled to correct, to guide, to set the record straight. By most accounts, this President is one heck of a smart man. And by his own account, this gun control issue is of monumental importance to him and to the nation.
The progressive genius is being defeated at every turn by sounder logic, more citizen momentum, greater passion, plain fact, American pride, and intractable legal decisions (even on his home turf). How can one of history’s most popular and impacting Presidents be so consistently humbled by such a plainly obvious divide? He either has a debilitating political blind spot that manifests as dishonesty or he lacks the intelligence to understand why his gun control efforts have failed so completely and thoroughly.
Which is it? Is our President patently dishonest or is he simply ill-informed about this, one of his fundamental platform issues? My opinion? He’s a very smart man.
