Remember when the emperor-to-be said *this*...?
He showed his true colors, his true thoughts about the opposition. But NOW he's saying something totally different for the cameras: 'I'm shocked, shocked, at all this hateful rhetoric coming from the Republicans! Our political system has no place for this kind of incitement!'
I think most rational people would be amazed at how anyone could say "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun!" and then just 8 years later claim to be shocked when someone from the other side uses roughly the same language. But then, he's a marxist Democrat, so consistency isn't to be expected.
