Obama’s Mistake

This is a great read from Charles Cook on Obama’s gun control executive order.

This is a man, remember, who is supposed to be admirably dispassionate; a man who is supposed to understand how the game is played; a man who is supposed to reflexively refuse to be taken in by the emotion of the moment.

Go read the whole thing.
