Deadly Cognitive Dissonance

Obama demonstrates it in spades when it comes to mass shootings.

Regarding the Newtown shooting:

Obama said the violence on that December morning amounted to the "worst day" of his presidency.

Try having the worst day every single day for the last eleven years.  Perhaps this might bother you a little.

"I will tell you, I have been in Washington for a while now. Most things don't surprise me. The fact that 20 six year olds were gunned down in the most violent fashion possible and this town couldn't do anything about it was stunning to me," he said.

Doesn’t this surprise you?

Regarding more recent shootings:

"Why aren't we doing something about this?"

Too bad you did something to cause this.

"The country has to do some soul searching about this," he said. "This is becoming norm."

Search your soul here….

…he shot down arguments that mental health was more to blame for mass killings than access to guns.

"The United States does not have a monopoly on crazy people. It's not the only country that has psychosis," he said. "And yet we kill each other in these mass shootings at rates that are exponentially higher than any place else. Well, what's the difference? The difference is that these guys can stack up a bunch of ammunition in their houses and that's sort of par for the course."

The monopoly on crazy people can be found here, or here, or here.  It is a national psychosis.
