"Most Americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a political fight. 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," White House spokesman Jay Carney said

But it’s OK for the White House to use others’ children as political pawns?

I can’t resist. With sarcasm, Has the President decided not to have the pawns (children) surround him today when he talks about his Executive Orders?

So Barkey can take away a citizen’s right to protect his children and it’s “repugnant and cowardly” to point out the hypocrisy involved?

Using children is repugnant? So I guess hussein will “de-enlist” the kids for his attempt to rule by fiat today? You know, the ones that “wrote” to him all on their own with no input from the parents. Wouldn’t it be better if these same parents explained the constitution to their kids and what this country was founded on? Oh wait. They don’t know either. Just give me free stuff. Lower my mortgage amount. Yeah, that’ll work. Cynical comments intentional.

Ouch. The ad really must have hit home!

It’s an excellent ad, by the way.

I guess obama won’t be using human child shields when he signs the EO’s because that would be repugnant and cowardly, right?

But it's not cowardly to completely support the willful, vicious slaughter of 3,300 unborn and newly born Americans each and every day. What a bunch of filthy, hypocritical morons.

The NAACPs’ and race baiters’ favourite word is repugnant. Obama is taking a page out of his NAACP lessons. Like racist, repugnant is one of the key vocabulary words used by the rhetoric spinners.

A person surrounded by armed guards 24/7 is in no position to call anyone “cowardly”.

FoxNews Bret Baier’s All Star panel, Charles Krauthammer, Juan Williams, and Steve Hayes, all called the NRA ad a mistake, vile and repugnant.

I guess they all believe that the elite should have armed protection for their children, but not for ours.

Krauthammer even went so far as to say, of course the President's children should be protected because of who the President is and out kids don't need that type of protection.

What about kids of policemen, judges, FBI, ATF, correctional officers, etc? Their children may be targets because of who their parents are. Don't they deserve armed protection too?

The NRA did not call for taking away the right of the President to protect his children, but to give our kids the same right and not to make them sitting ducks in a gun free zone.

According to Krauthammer then, I guess the kids at Sandy Hook didn’t count. It’s okay for these kids to be sitting ducks as long as they weren’t kids of the elite.
