President Obama embarks on his second term in the White House next week with a majority of the nation giving him a good performance review, albeit barely.

Goin' For 2 (Terms)

Fifty-one percent of Americans surveyed January 11-15 approve of how Obama is handling his job, according to CBS News, while 41 percent disapprove.

Fittingly, Obama received 51 percent of the vote in the 2012 presidential election, while Republican challenger Mitt Romney garnered (yes) 47 percent.

Chris Christie has become the first Republican to call out the NRA for its tactics against Barack Obama and those fighting for stricter gun control laws.

Earlier this week, an NRA ad hit the Internet that referred to Obama as an "elitist hypocrite" because his children attend a tightly-secured school.

"To talk about the president’s children, or any public officer’s children, who have - not by their own choice, but by requirement - to have protection, and to use that somehow to try to make a political point is reprehensible," Christie said.

"The president doesn’t have a choice, and his children don’t have a choice, of whether they’re going to be protected or not. It’s awful to bring public figures' children into the political debate. They don’t deserve to be there."

NRA President David Keene said he is aggressively preparing for "battle" with the White House and Congress over President Obama's gun control plan.

He also defended the new NRA ad calling Obama an "elitist hypocrite."

Keene criticized Obama's announcement Wednesday, surrounded by four children from around the U.S., for "using kids to advance an ideological agenda."

He expressed confidence that few measures would ultimately pass.

In advance of President Obama's gun control plan, The National Rifle Association preemptively released a new video labeling him an "elitist hypocrite." 

Obama, the ad says, enjoys Secret Service protection of his two daughters at school, yet is "skeptical" about installing armed guards in all schools.

The 35-second video is as harsh as any political campaign ad and illustrates how emotionally charged and personal the debate over gun control is.

The White House quickly blasted the NRA ad using Obama’s daughters to criticize the president on gun control as both “repugnant and cowardly."

Invoking the painful memory of the Newtown, Conn., massacre, President Barack Obama called today for the most sweeping gun control overhaul in years.

The Sandy Hook conspiracy theorists and gun lobbyists across the U.S. will not be pleased, but Obama said he'll "put everything I’ve got into this."

Among the actions he called on Congress to pass:

  • Background checks for every would-be buyer
  • Bans on military-style rifles, or assault weapons
  • Bans on ammunition clips that hold more than 10 bullets

Some of his proposals are sure to run headlong into fierce opposition from Republicans and some Democrats in Congress, not to mention the powerful NRA.

White House party crasher, former reality star and perennial fame whore Tareq Salahi is running for Governor of Virginia as an "independent Republican."

Michaele Salahi and Tareq Salahi

Salahi said back in April that he planned to run for governor and seek the Republican nomination, but decided yesterday to run apart from the GOP ticket.

State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II was the only person to file as a GOP candidate for governor, and he was deemed the nominee Monday.

He is expected to face veteran campaign strategist Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, with the former Mr. Michaele Salahi running as a third party candidate.

The Obama Administration issued a response to an online petition asking the White House to commission an intergalactic Death Star a la Star Wars.

Sadly, it rejected the request.

  • Obama Death Star!
  • P O T U S

Guess The Force was not strong enough with this petition.

Claiming it would cost an estimated $850,000,000,000,000,000 and that "the administration does not support blowing up planets," Obama nixed the idea.

The White House was forced to offer an official response, since the petition garnered the requisite 25,000 signatures on the WeThePeople petitioning system.

Phil Gingrey, a Republican Congressman from Georgia, has brought back up the topic of "legitimate rape."

The term was broached by Todd Akin - a losing candidate for Congress in Missouri who drew MAJOR fire last year for saying a woman's body "shuts down" in the face of this type of act - and Gingrey tried to defend the point yesterday at a Chamber of Commerce breakfast.

Phil Gingrey Pic

“What he meant by legitimate rape was just look, someone can say I was raped: a scared-to-death 15-year-old that becomes impregnated by her boyfriend and then has to tell her parents, that’s pretty tough and might on some occasion say, ‘Hey, I was raped.’

Continued Gingrey, who has served as an OB-GYN:

James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response, a Tennessee company that trains people in weapon and tactical skills, is not too happy at the moment.

Why? He claims in a video (below) that he's about ready to "start killing people" if President Barack Obama tries to pass further gun control policies:

In a frenetic address to the camera, Yeager calls on other gun rights advocates to "load your damn mags" and "get ready to fight" against gun control.

In the wake of V.P. Joe Biden indicating that Obama was exploring using executive orders to address gun policy, Yeager predicts a "civil war" is nigh.

A media professor at Florida Atlantic University won't apologize for questioning the Sandy Hook school massacre, but denies he is fostering a conspiracy theory.

James Tracy wrote on his personal blog that believes the events that unfolded in the Newtown, Conn., elementary school did not happen as we think - if at all.

“While it sounds outrageous, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place," he writes, suggesting Newtown didn't happen as reported.

He suggests there were multiple shooters and that the number of dead is incorrect, and that the government may have brought in actors to add drama.
