Another Obama apology

Another Obama Apology
In a speech with Afghan president Hamid Karzai at the White House this afternoon, President Obama said the U.S. has fallen "short of the ideal" in Afghanistan {video}. "So, you know, I think that, have we achieved everything that some might have imagined us achieving in the best of scenarios? Probably not. You know, there's a human enterprise, and you know, you fall short of the ideal," said Obama. "Oh isn't that nice," Sean said sarcastically. "If this is his feeling then everybody should come home tomorrow. Bring 'em home. If you're not in it to win it, if you're not willing to fight for something and you're just willing to settle there is no point. You need the full commitment to it. If we're just going to toe the line and put people's lives at risk for basically nothing then we should bring them home. That's why you don't give a finish date for a conflict or a war," said Sean.

Armed Security At Schools?
Jason Childs, founder of the Center for Progress in Alabama and state legislator Craig Ford (D-AL) joined Sean in the show's second hour to discuss a very important topic, especially since the tragedy in Newtown - school safety. Childs and Ford are typically left on every issue, but surprisingly they are against the proposed gun legislation floating around Washington. Both men believe we need to keep our 2nd amendment rights and think we should fight to have armed security at schools to protect our children. "We believe that police resource officers should be at every school," Childs explained. "In the 90's this was a common practice but has been declining over the last few years. The gunman would not have killed as many children had armed officers been at the school. We need to push for this policy in Alabama. Whatever the cost it will be worth the peace of mind." Ford proposed to fund resource officers drawn from active or retired law enforcement ranks. "They are typically armed with firearms or Tasers, and trained not only in how to use those weapons, but also in how to protect them from being taken by an attacker," he said. Ford said most schools are safe, but having resource officers is added protection and &"sends a message to our children that they are valuable and worth protecting." Childs urged Sean's Alabama audience to call their legislators in Montgomery (334-242-4753) and tell them to support the Center for Progress in Alabama Safe Schools Initiative.

Gun Advocates Detail 'Unproductive' Meeting With White House
The president and his newly formed gun task force continue to plug away at taking away your guns. Yesterday, Vice President Biden with his presidential task force, met with gun rights groups at the White House. Biden is aiming to have a list of recommendations on President Obama's desk by Tuesday. The NRA put out this statement, "We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment. While claiming that no policy proposals would be pre-judged, this task force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearm owners, honest taxpaying hard working Americans." Sean was joined by two people who are in that closed door meeting at the White House yesterday, the president of the Independent Firearms Association, Richard Feldman and the executive director of the Firearms Import Export Roundtable, Johanna Reeves.
