Manchin’s 15 minutes of fame

Now that Joe Manchin has had his 15 minutes of fame, I suggest he introduce a bill expanding background checks for IEDS, pressure pots and possibly Xacto knives. Can this man be this naive or are his political ambitions and his desire to curry favor with the Obama crowd just clouding his judgment?

The good people of West Virginia sent him to Congress to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” and not to infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens who have done nothing wrong.

As far as the NRA telling lies, how about Obama’s lies regarding Benghazi, the Fort Hood terrorist massacre, Obamacare, the economy and countless other lies, big and small, he has told since assuming office?

We have enough two-faced politicians in D.C. now and we don’t need any more!
