Obama’s Inartful Statement

What the heck is an “inartful statement?”

ABC News’ Teddy Davis and Alexa Ainsworth Report: With the Supreme Court poised to rule on Washington, D.C.’s, gun ban, the Obama campaign is disavowing what it calls an “inartful” statement to the Chicago Tribune last year in which an unnamed aide characterized Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., as believing that the DC ban was constitutional.

“That statement was obviously an inartful attempt to explain the Senator’s consistent position,” Obama spokesman Bill Burton tells ABC News.

The only thing consistent about Senator Barack Obama’s position on the Second Amendment is that he is against protecting the rights of law abiding citizens:

But the campaign of Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said that he ‘…believes that we can recognize and respect the rights of law-abiding gun owners and the right of local communities to enact common sense laws to combat violence and save lives. Obama believes the D.C. handgun law is constitutional.’

Well, thank goodness the majority of the Supreme Court of the United States has a better understanding of the Constitution than Democrats nominee for President. Senator Obama’s stance on this issue is a frightening reminder of why he should not get our vote in November.
