A few years back everyone was saying that General David Petraeus was gonna swoop in and knock out Obama in the 2012 election and save the Republican party. Well it’s four years later and he’s doing an absurdly dumb thing that shows just what a pipe-dream that was!
Retired U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus, who has long resisted calls to run for political office, is teaming up with retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly to create a new group urging greater gun control.
The two announced on Friday that they were launching Veterans Coalition for Common Sense to encourage elected leaders to “do more to prevent gun tragedies.” The group will feature veterans from every branch of the military who are urging lawmakers to toughen gun laws, the organization said in a news release.
“As service members, each of us swore an oath to protect our Constitution and the homeland. Now we’re asking our leaders to do more to protect our rights and save lives,” said Kelly, the husband of former Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and co-founder of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a group that advocates for tougher gun laws.
Wow. I seriously can’t believe it.
Maybe the GOP establishment knew he was gonna be a good RINO moderate all along, and that’s why they were pressuring us to take him in.
OR, the more conspiratorial thinking is that Obama blackmailed into this with some info he garnered through his emails.
Either way, Petraeus turns out to be just another political disappointment…
