We Haven’t Had a Background Check on Obama

By Joe Kovacz, World Net Daily

PALM BEACH, Fla. – President Obama’s newly announced gun-control initiatives  are intended as “revenge” against many Americans, as he’s pushing them “to  snap,” claims top-rated radio host Rush Limbaugh.

“I think he wants people to snap. I think Obama is challenging everybody’s  sanity,” Limbaugh said on his show Wednesday afternoon. “Obama [is] literally  pushing people to snap, attacking the very sanity of the country.”

Obama  announced a sweeping set of directives he intends will cut down on  Americans’ access to guns, setting the stage for a constitutional battle with  states where lawmakers already are openly defying the latest power grab by the  White House.

His plan would demand federal access to the details every time an uncle sells  a .22 to a nephew, would ban some weapons outright through a limit on ammunition  capacity, would waive medical privacy laws in some cases so individuals can be  reported, and others.

Coming on the heels of a recent birth-control mandate, Limbaugh noted, “All  of this is so in our face. Everything that people hold dear is under assault.  Deliberately making people upset. This is not what presidents do.”

Speculating why Obama is taking this action, Limbaugh said, “Maybe this is  about revenge. Obama used that word when he was on the campaign trail prior to  the election. He told his supporters in Ohio to go vote and get their revenge.  Revenge against who? Well, obviously the people that disagree with Obama. But  who are those people? He clearly knows who they are, and I think the root of  this … can be found in the comment that Obama made when he thought he was off  the records at a fundraiser in San Francisco when he talked about the ‘bitter  clingers.’”

In 2008, Obama made the “bitter  clingers” comment, referring to small-town Pennsylvanians upset over a  number of issues, saying “It’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling  to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or  anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their  frustrations.”

“These are people that the liberals all know,” Limbaugh said. “These are ‘the  not very bright people’ that want life to never change. They don’t want any  progress. They want to remain cloistered in their archaic, antique past and when  things don’t go right, when there’s too much change, when there’s too much  progress or progressivism. Like when there’s civil-rights laws, they don’t like  it. When there’s gay rights and gay marriage. They don’t like it. When there’s  all kinds of cultural rot on TV, they don’t like it. … That’s who Obama wants  revenge on. Maybe he has an active dislike for the people he calls the bitter  clingers. That birth-control mandate was revenge on the bitter clingers.”

Limbaugh also came up with an absurd way to help put an end to abortion in  America.

“You want to know how to stop abortion? Require that each one be carried out  with a gun,” he said.

Among Obama’s 23 executive orders presented today several are aimed at  upgrading the system of background checks for gun purchases.

Limbaugh noted, “If we’re going to have universal background checks on  virtually everybody who buys a gun, you think maybe it’s time to require a  background check on anybody wanting to be president? I would submit to you we  still have not had a background check on Barack Obama.

“We are soon to be starting the second term of Obama’s regime, year number  five without a background check. And by that, I mean the media have never vetted  Obama. Low-information voters have no idea who he is. A majority of people who  vote don’t really know anything about Barack Obama. Background checks,  anybody?”

And regarding Obama’s push to drive citizens to snap, Limbaugh said, “You  just be cool and calm. Everything’s going to be fine. I’ll tell you when it’s  not.”
