    He loves that 90% quote.

    90% of Mexico's gun violence is America's fault. Obama Falsely Says Most Guns In Mexico's Drug War Came From U.S. - Investors.com
    90% of deficit is Bush's fault. Obama claim that Bush is 90% responsible for current deficit gets 100% of Pinocchios at WaPo Hot Air
    90% of Americans don't have to worry about Obamacare. Obama?s claim that 90 percent of Americans ?don?t have to worry? about ?Obamacare? - The Washington Post

    As POTUS, you'd think he would be capable of a little more creativity with his lies. It is terrifying that such a simpleton can rule our nation.

    Gallup never polled me. Or anybody I know, for that matter. What's really important is not what percent of who answered what, but how many people were actually polled, what region(s) were the responders from, what age groups, etc. A lot more goes into understanding the public than just "80% of republicans this" and "90% of democrats that".

    If 90% of the citizens were on board with everthing connected with what the POTUS does ,his approval rating wouldn't be in the basement.

    Maybe 90% did answer yes to a poll, but I'd say that's because most people don't realize what "universal backgrounds checks" actually mean.

    90% of Americans want nothing to do with Syria but he seems all too willing to ignore that statistic.

    Remember the one about 40% of guns used in crimes came from gun shows?

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    87% of statistics are made up on the spot.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
