The president argued that “the more left-leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word”
It isn't a dirty word, but their usage shows a complete misunderstanding of its definition. Compromise means they get something and we get something. What would we get in return? Expanded carry rights? Protection for hunting land? Congress stops screwing with Pittman-Robertson funds?

No. They're sticking a lump of coal in our stockings and telling us to be thankful it doesn't catch the house on fire. That's not compromise.

I'm sorry if the President feels hung up by elected representatives, and that he can't do enough via Executive Order, and...

Oh wait. I'm not sorry in the least.
