If They Bring a Knife * We Bring a Gun * PIOG

Mobster wisdom tells us never to bring a knife to a gun fight. But what does political wisdom say about bringing a gun to a knife fight?

That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

The comment drew some laughs and applause...

Is this Obama's tactics for the Town Hall meetings!? If a Republican said this or someone such as Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity...the left would be calling for someone's head...no doubt~

Don't believe EVERYTHING you read in a BLOG that is usually someones opinion and not all the facts are there. I bet it was taken WAY out of context like everything else the president has said.

This reminded me of that Robert DeNiro quote from "Casino".

"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he'll keep comin' back and back until one of you is dead."

This isn't surprising; they are calling people who come out to townhall meetings unamerican, unpatriotic, Nazis, brownshirts, etc.   Politicans are canceling townhall meetings because they are afraid of elderly ladies and veterans.

UMMM no some are cancleing because they have recived DEATH THREATS.  That and a kot of local newspapers are SHOWING what side they are on, example the paper here in my town was singing the praises of Rehberg whom is a repub and our only house of reps coming to the state and holding meetings and so forth yet NOTHING on the fact that BOTH our state sentors whom are dems are BOTH going to be in the state as well holding meetings. and the president is even gonna be in the state holding meetings yet no mention of that in the paper either. hmmmmmm.

Won't let me quote on this computer but yeah, I agree with you on this! People always got crap to say about the other political party but whenever their side does it, it is not so bad. I think this is just human nature though-everyone does it!

I support Ron Paul!

Now they are calling people that go to townhall meetings racists.  I thought this was about healthcare not race...

Did you view the video you posted?  She is not calling protesters Nazis she is referring to those who bring signs with nazi symbols on them and refer to Obama as Hitler...Funny (and sad) how some hear only what they want to hear...Go to http://www.factcheck.org to get the truth....
