Preezy Obama and a bunch of others spent four and a half hours talking with each other about gun control yesterday and emerged from the talkathon deciding that… they wanted to talk more about gun control.
After a three-hour convening of law enforcement, civil rights leaders, and Black Lives Matter activists that stretched to nearly four-and-a-half hours, President Obama declared the meeting a model of reaching out and finding common ground.
So, the secret to finding common ground is to exclude anyone from a discussion who might disagree with you. [And don’t say, “But law enforcement was present, too.” There are plenty of left-wing law enforcement people who want to outlaw guns.] Certainly sounds like the way Obama operates.
Personally, I would rather be waterboarded than listen to Chicago Jesus prattle on and on and on and on and on and on for four hours about how bad guns and racist bitter clingers are. As awful as waterboarding is, it’s over in like two minutes.
I can barely stand an hour long meeting. The longer a meeting goes, the less is actually accomplished, in my experience. When I end meetings, my closer is usually, “OK, we’re done with that. Let’s get back to work.” But to left-wing bureaucrats and social parasites (activists), yammering at each other is supposed to be “work” I guess.
