If President Barack Obama follows through on his threat to visit Roseburg, Oregon later this week the House must pass a resolution of censure before he gets off Air Force One.
Call the president’s planned trip to the site of the Umpqua Community College shootings last week the straw that broke the camel’s back, if you will. But his announcement Monday evening that he was going to Roseburg, after prominent individuals including the publisher of the local newspaper had made it clear he was not welcome there as a result of his statements following the shootings, display a crass disregard for the wishes of the American people which must be met with some official response.
Obama didn’t even wait until the bodies were cold in Roseburg, or worse, for all of the next of kin to be notified, before launching into what originally appeared to be the usual noisy harangue about gun control. That was to be expected; after all, the president has well-earned his repute as the worst of the gun-grabbing ghouls of the Left, greedily feeding as he does on every tragic mass shooting to fuel his animus for the Second Amendment.
