For the liberal establishment, “political courage” means a politician spitting in the face of his conservative constituents.
Yeah, I've noticed that too.
More on Obama and the Democrats in the debate about the Second Amendment.
There are people who really believe President Barack Obama is some sort of cunning political grand-master, plotting out the checkmate ten moves ahead of his plodding opponents. Nonsense. He’s actually President Peter Principle, failing ever upward thanks to the disarray of his opponents....He made the big announcement of his 23 executive orders and his gun-grabbing legislative wish list in a ceremony so packed with kids that it’s surprising the Wiggles didn’t show up to sing along. ...“Political courage” is easy when you've run your last campaign or when you’re writing editorials for the New York Times. It can be downright dangerous to your career when you’re facing the voters in Arkansas and have to explain why you decided that because some Yankee psycho shot up a school they need to disarm themselves to please that guy in the White House and the gang at the New York Times.
