Just Thinking Out Loud: So which is it?

Some three years ago, Barack Obama made headlines by referencing "bitter" people who "cling to guns…" as a means of expressing their frustration with the changing world – a position frequently held by the Left to exhibit the supposed backwardness of their challengers on the opposite side of the aisle.

Just yesterday, amid the 4th of July – which was also his daughter Malia's 13th birthday – President Obama stated that he's not worried about his daughters growing up as teenagers because "…I understand teenage-hood is complicated.  I should also point out that I have men with guns that surround them, often."

It would be easy to make too much of his statement and/or take it out of context altogether.  But the Left's stance on weapons of any kind has always been clear.  So if nothing else, this demonstrates just another difference between candidate Obama and President Obama.  And yet, strangely enough, we still don't know what he thinks about much of anything.
