Buried back ten years you can get an idea of where Barack Obama stands on Gun Control from this note at Jawa.
What else do we know about Obama? Well he likes to use the words “Social Justice” almost as much as Green candidates do, he’s got a solidly liberal voting record in the Senate, and he speaks authoritatively about sweeping, general concepts that few will disagree with, but which are all sound and fury signifying nothing. Peggy Noonan points out that if you just read the transcript, it’s typical political boilerplate without content.
So is Barack just a cult of personality, or is there more to him? I suspect there’s more, but it’s stuff he doesn’t want us to know. Stuff like this, like the upcoming Rezko trial, and other things that will likely come to light if he does become the candidate. The free pass days are over now that he is the front runner for the Democratic nomination.
One other note, also from Jawa – Barack is likely to stumble more often now that he’s in the limelight, as demonstrated by his slip here, where he uses faux-journo Scott Beauchamp as a source.
