The first paragraph of Jennifer Steinhauer’s “news analysis” at the New York Times reads:
“President Obama, his face set with rage, stood in the Rose Garden surrounded by the families of Newtown and former Representative Gabrielle Giffords and asked how a measure to expand background checks for gun buyers—one supported by an overwhelming majority of Americans and a bipartisan majority of the Senate—had slipped away.”
They may support strengthening background checks, but a recent Gallup Poll shows only 4% of Americans think gun control is the most important problem facing the nation.
Where have we seen this kind of ugly face-making before? In the pouts of our sons and daughters when they failed to get their way.
And his chiding of Congress? His hissing was as good as any cat’s.
See the pictures of Obama pouting today? That's his lame duckface.— David Burge (@iowahawkblog) April 17, 2013
