Barack Obama, The Coward Using Our Children

I thought the “NRA Attack Ad” (as the media calls it) made a great point. But USAToday recently reported on the White House response made an even better point: showing us what kind of self-worshiping elitists the populace of the United States is forced to fight against.

The NRA TV advertisement presented the fact that Obama didn’t think much of setting up armed guards at the nation’s schools. Yet he and those like him had tax-payer funded armed protection for themselves and for their children. The NRA’s point was that, while Obama demanded everyone “pay their ‘fair share.’” He wasn’t willing to support a “fair share” of security for the nation’s children. He was satisfied with special privileges for his own. I thought the ad was brilliant, because it not only covered the NRA’s proposal for armed guards in our schools (which I’m on the fence about) but also, without mentioning it, raised the issue that, by taking guns, the government is taking away what security they can afford.

“The White House attacked the National Rifle Association on Wednesday for an ad that mentioned President Obama’s daughters… ‘Most Americans agree that a president’s children should not be used as pawns in a political fight,’ said White House spokesman Jay Carney. The Obama spokesman added: ‘But to go so far as to make the safety of the president’s children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly.’”

Excuse me? Who traveled to Sandy Hook to get photo ops with the sibling children of the victims? Who made his major announcement surrounded by a group of children? Who read letters purportedly authored by children? Whose Vice President introduced him with a litany about the children of Sandy Hook? Who has been trying to disarm Americans in the name of “the children”?

Why aren’t our children “off limits,” Mr. President?

Of course, the accusation is nonsense. The NRA ad doesn’t say that the President or his children should be left without any security. It doesn’t demand that all his guards be disarmed. It never makes “the safety of the president’s children the subject of an attack ad.” Rather, it asks that we be allowed to keep our children safe. It asks the president to show some concern for other people’s children to allow schools and parents to protect them.

The irony of Carney’s words is so amazing. The NRA claims that Obama doesn’t care about our children but only for his own, and the White House responds by saying that Obama’s use of other people’s children doesn’t matter, but that only what is said about his own children really counts. The NRA claims Obama protects his own children, but not other peoples’ children, and the White House responds that only Obama’s children should be protected from being mentioned, but other people’s children can be used in a White House campaign.

Obama is demonstrating exactly what the NRA claims. He is an elitist hypocrite. That is all.

In my opinion, based on Carney’s remarks the NRA would be justified in ending their ad with a voice over from the President: “I’m Barack Obama, and I approve this message.

    There are way too many hypocritical cowards in the halls of politics and they need to be ousted immediately, and I’m saying traitorous kinds that need to be imprisoned. There are way too many things rotten in this administration and things are going to change…

  • ronc

    Oooookaaaaay…If we the Whitehouse is against using children as “pawns” then why did Obama surround himself with them as he signed the gun control executive orders? Typical hypocracy by the left.

  • Chann Charlie

    Impeach Obama and all of the Democrats in government, now, or just dray them behind vehicles until they see it our way.

  • Chann Charlie

    or just drag them behind vehicles.

    Carney is nothing but an a– kissing liberturd who is scared sh–less for his job. If obumass were to stop suddenly, Carney would have his nose up obumasses butt so far it would take a crew of engineers to get it out. The veru idea that obumass used those children for his EO signing is what is cowardly and repugnant. I would really be very interested in seeing those “letters the children wrote”. How many of them were actually written by the children and how many were written by parents (who naturally back obumass) and how many were written by the speechwriters in the WH. Looking at the wording, spelling and phrasology should tell us a lot.

    Thanks to the NRA, they really nailed this one and the liberal loons are mad. See they can only dish it out but they can’t take it. Remember you disagree with Obama, and where has our republic gone?

  • bhudda

    The shock of the whole thing . The concern for the gun owners in southern New York wasn’t even mentioned . I should say the non-gun owners children . After all Obama’s liberal press endangered a lot of children be irresponcibly releaseing the addresses of the gun owners so the crook knows where to go safley or a pedifile .

  • Buck

    There is no form of slime on earth lower than our muslim communist fraudulent president , a b–t–d born SOB raised on pure communist doctrine and the put in office by the CIA under the control of the New World Order . IMPEACHMENT NOW !!!

  • Don39

    This cowardice is part of the liberal psychological profile! And has been part of the profile of many tyrants throughout history. The immaturity of liberalism and rigid dominance has been the hallmark of most liberal and iron-fisted regimes. The Obamanation is no different! He must be stopped at any cost!

  • EClark

    Look back over time and see how many misterious second men were involved in shootings in this country. From JFK to Newtown.

    • Mudpuppy

      Yes, mysterious. One wonders if it’s just someone’s deranged fantasy. There is often conflicting evidence, or no evidence of a second (or third) shooter. Maybe there was, maybe there wasn’t.

    What, pray tell, does Mrs. Carney’s delicate little boy know about what “most Americans” think?

  • Ron G

    How about a background check on the president!

  • mpdmd

    Have no fear, Barack is a media darling and with 49 percent of folks on food stamps his position is well insulated. His slaves will continue to support him for without handouts the dreaded four letter word WORK looms . How may the bums keep spreading and breeding if work interfered? Barack has bought the souls of most of the folks living in the USA. As long as they feed at the government boob work remains a four letter word and they can spend time spreading, breeding( if with opposite sexes)) and drugging. MassaO loves his slaves and is happy enough they are brain dead and cannot recognize his plan to destroy our once great nation. He is a SOCIALIST. But as long as no one knows what that entails thanks to the dumbing down of our schools he and his ilk are safe.

    cut and paste this if you want to see what this President is really capable of. Remember when he was asked about Benghazi and he said the results were less than Optimal? With the Sandy Hoax shooting, he has gotten the optimal results he wanted.
    I have lost a child, and this so called father is not how you look or act the day after you lose a child.
    Please download and forward this film, because it will probably disappear from view before long, just like the footage of tanks firebombing the buildings in Waco, which I watched as it was happening, just like Fast and Furious, which has killed more people than Sandy Hoax, and just like Benghazi, when the prez sat in his chair and watched men die and then all he thought of was how it would affect him.
    Presidents have been lying to us since Kennedy was shot.

  • Patriot

    They keep talking “impeach” but no one does anything. The House of Representatives is where impeachment has to begin and we know Boehner hasn’t got the nerve to do it.
    We needed to get rid of Boehner too………..
    Most of our politicians are useless. Especially Obama and his thugs.

  • Patriot

    I have been a member of the NRA for a long time and will continue to be. I also belong to a few other groups like it. They are the only ones looking out for the second amendment and the only real defense we have against obysmal and his thugs.

  • Britt

    He’s not going to take guns off of the protection of his children and allow them in public. Then why should I even began to think about doing that to mine. I will make sure mine are safe at all times. Any parent that doesn’t put their child first has a large problem.

  • Battalion of Americans

    Does that go for W, too? His daughters are protected, just like Obama’s. Whay hypocrites you all are. Shadow_58, sounds like the Shadow doesn’t know diddly squat this time. You should be remanded into custody, for incarceration at Gitmo.

    • Mudpuppy

      This isn’t about Bush. He is no longer president (in case you missed the last two presidential elections). Obama (unfortunately) is. This is about Obama and his lap-dog Carney. No hypocrisy here. Should we go back to all past living presidents when discussing the current one? That’s ridiculous.
