Not so smug

Chuck Schumer has a really annoying smugness whenever he gets the best of his opposition.  He’s not sounding that way over H.R. 822.

From the Watertown Daily Times:

“… The bill passed the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, 272-154, but its future in the Democratic-controlled Senate is in doubt. Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., has pledged to do what he can to stop the bill in the chamber, according to a report in the New York Daily News …”

From the Daily News:

“… Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) has vowed to work to stop its passage in the Senate …”

From the Post-Standard:

“… “It seems perverse that the first gun-related measure that this Congress plans to take up since the Tucson shooting is one that seeks to dismantle states’ ability to protect their own citizens,” Schumer said. “It’s like a bad dream.” …”

He didn’t sound this way last time around.  He was a lot more confident and full of himself.  Schumer lost a lot of support after the ’10 elections and both he and the the antis know it.  Nobody was asking Obama to veto the measure last year.

As of now Harry Reid has not commented on the bill nor has the Whitehouse, adding to the anti’s hysteria.
