Among liberals' hysterical vitriol over guns last week in the aftermath of the Newtown, Conn., school mass-shooting, none was more vapid than that from CNN's Piers Morgan. While “hosting” Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, Mr. Morgan called his guest “an unbelievably stupid man” who is “dangerous” and concluded his interview/rant by saying, “You shame your country.” Ah, that's just what this debate needs — cool, collected reasoning. ... And who's capitalizing on this national tragedy? Why, Obama for America. The Daily Caller reports the campaign sent out an email from senior adviser David Axelrod promoting a video of the president's speech to Newtown families. A link in the email to the video connected viewers to the campaign website, with two buttons for financial donations. This, from the same crew that preaches sensitivity. ... In the latest chapter of President Obama's “success” story — the $49.5 billion GM bailout — the administration last week announced it will sell 200 million shares of stock back to GM. At the current price, taxpayers would lose more than $13 billion, The Detroit News reports. And that's an optimistic projection. Only in America can taxpayers take a multibillion-dollar hit, which this president sells as his shining accomplishment.
