    Up 54, down 46. Harry Reid votes no. What's he up to? Vote currently in progress on Grassly/Cruz ammendment.

    Harry Reid had two reasons for voting no. First of all, his constituents tend to be pro-gun. However as a point of parliamentary procedure, he needed to vote on the winning side so that he can move to bring it up again.

    the second reason was his reason for voting no, without his no vote they couldnt bring it back up again...

    I wonder who will introduce the bill on controlling pressure cookers? Will there be a universal registry? Will there be size limitations?

    once again this administration marches former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and puts her front and center when the Pres goes on national TV to admonish the Senators that voted against the legislation..I dont know if I am more disgusted with the admin for using and exploiting her or her husband for allowing her to be used like a stage prop for their anti gun debate...its the James Brady scenario all over again..and then they release a statement saying she is furious over the bill not passing, puhleeze...dont insult our intelligence by using someone to try and guilt the public because you didnt get your way on legislation

    Bon, I know you aren't surprised that Obama would stoop so low? Being "presidential" has never been a concern of his from what I can see. He loses a round in the debate, then calls the other side liars. This is an American president? We have sunk to new lows in such a short time.

    and then for a change of pace I watch CNN because they have better coverage of the explosion in TX....and lo and behold they run the press conference where this time he is shown hugging the family members from Newton Conn while they again are used to further a political agenda....

    Shameful...and the media plays along and shows what they want to the American public...its like lets bludgeon them with this and maybe we can drum up added support...See ya at the polls in 2014...

    This guy is just not up to the job.

    No one has ever said NO to him in his life.
    He was clearly angry.
    But why?
    On behalf of all the children that would be saved?
    Or because HE didn't get HIS way????????
