ABC’s Jake Tapper Tests Obama’s Patience: Mr. President, Where Have You Been on Gun Control?

Obama’s answer, said while shooting laser-darts from his eyes into Tapper’s head, was basically “I’ve been too busy being president to focus on the stuff I’m now focusing on… uh… as president.”

You’ll probably laugh at Obama’s “I haven’t been on vacation” remark. He’s probably just a little defensive — not to mention stressed — because the deadline is fast approaching for him to leave for vacation:

The question the Press Corpse should be asking is why the Obama administration hasn’t even been enforcing the gun laws on the books and yet they’re talking about making new gun laws. Consider me highly skeptical of the effectiveness of whatever “solutions” Sheriff Biden’s gun safety committee come up with.

Update: You know what the fiscal cliff debate needs? Some serious exploitation of the murders of over two dozen little kids and women:

Obama: They understand that they’re not going to get 100 percent of what they want. And for some reason, that message has not yet taken up on Capitol Hill. And when you think about what we’ve gone through over the last couple of months — a devastating hurricane, and now one of the worst tragedies in our memory, the country deserves folks to be willing to compromise on behalf of the greater good and not tangle themselves up in a whole bunch of ideological positions that don’t make much sense.
