Pretty good analysis of the impotent attempt to pass new gun laws at the Federal level. Why they are useless - having no real effect - political incompetence and why the American people just didn't jump on the bandwagon despite the surface appeal of background checks.
This President has appeal, an unmistakable charisma. He has support in many areas, and his party is still strong in Congress. But he fails, he fails repeatedly and the reason he fails is because he is not a true statesman. Looking good and playing to emotional subjects, playing sympathy games using people like the kids and families of Newtown is showmanship, not statecraft. It looks great on the tube, but it won't sell Senators and State Reps and that is something he just doesn't know how to do.
