‘WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?’: ABC’S JAKE TAPPER CALLS OUT OBAMA IN TESTY EXCHANGE

ABC News’ Jake Tapper confronted President Barack Obama about not doing more earlier in his administration to combat gun violence following last week’s horrific elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

“This is not the first issue, the first incident of horrific gun violence of your four years,” Tapper said Wednesday after Obama announced a new task force to bring him “real reforms” to reduce gun violence. “Where have you been?”

“Here’s where I’ve been Jake,” Obama said. “I’ve been president of the United States dealing with the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, an auto industry on the verge of collapse, two wars, I don’t think I’ve been on vacation. I think all of us have to do some reflection on how we prioritize what we do here in Washington.”

lol...more vacations in his first 4 years than any other President. More fundraisers than the last 5 Presidents combined...and above and beyond that? An utter failure.

"I don't think I've been on vacation" Who does he think he's kidding? He has taken more vacations in his first term than ANY other president, not to mention the trips (taxpayer funded) trips for his wife & her friends, and their daughter. Pretty much ALL he has done has been on vacation!!

The arrogance of our man-child liar in chief is breathtakingly unbelievable. He obviously thinks that everybody in this country is as stupid and ignorant as the sheep who voted for him.
