Quote of the day: Sen. McConnell should stop saying things

Know that I will be doing everything in my power as Senate Republican leader, fighting tooth and nail, to protect your Second Amendment rights, so that law-abiding citizens such as yourself can properly and adequately protect yourself, your family, and your country.

-Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), in a taped call to Kentucky gun owners, regarding President Obama’s gun-control proposals.

Remember, however, that this is the same Kentucky senator who also created a bit of a stir when he said this in October of 2010:

The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.

Earlier today, Barack Obama was sworn in for his second term as president in a small ceremony at the White House. Tomorrow, to add insult to injury, he will actually be sworn in a second time, as part of a liberal conspiracy to really just rub McConnell’s face in it. Scores of conservative Congressmen are reported as having thrown up their hands in exasperation upon hearing McConnell’s taped quote above, as now Obama’s gun proposals are almost guaranteed to pass.
