Skip to comments.White House slams NRA ad using Obama daughters to criticize new gun laws
Posted on 01/16/2013 3:50:33 PM PST by tobyhill
The White House on Wednesday blasted a web ad released by the National Rifle Association using President Barack Obamas daughters to criticize the president on gun control as repugnant and cowardly."
The NRA released the ad Tuesday, a day before Obama announced a package of proposals aimed at curbing gun violence in the wake of a mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., last month.
In strikingly personal terms, the ad calls Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for allowing Secret Service protection for daughters even as he calls for tighter gun laws.
"Why is [Obama] skeptical about putting armed security in schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school?" the ad asks.
As the president's children, Malia and Sasha Obama are entitled to Secret Service protection. Obama has never said he opposes more armed security guards at school, which the NRA recommended in the wake of the Newtown massacre. But the president has said such a step is not sufficient in curbing gun danger.

Hussein is a putz.
Can dish it out, but can’t take it.
That boy needs to step down off that pile of children’s bodies he’s been dancing on for the past month.
Who was the commie bastard using children as pawns today while he attacked the Second Amendment? Oh yeah Adolph Obama.
NRA could have softened this a bit by including the (no doubt) dozens of other government folk who have children protected by armed security.
Still, NRA made their point.
What both of you said...he’s been desecrating the memory of murdered children with his grandstanding. At least the comparisons are just that and nothing more. The hypocrisy is neck deep with that one.
Whipped dog yelps the loudest.
If your drawing flack, you must be over the target.
Parents who think that the lives of their children do not deserve the same degree of protection as what Obama’s children receive should not be parents.
I have no way to verify this, but I read elsewhere that the White House “Spokeskid” sends his kids to Sidwell Friends as well as does The Kenyan. The White House Mouthpiece position must pay well. Sidwell annually is as expensive as an Ivy League college. sd
Yeah, just heard a bunch of hand wringers on FOX piss and moan on the NRA about this too.
TOUGH CRAP. The left abused the memory of the Sandy Hook kids ever since the shooting. Sidwell kids have had armed protection for a LONG TIME. So pointing out the P U N K S hypocrisy is LONG OVERDUE.com
You mean, Idi Obama.
I wish NRA would have used moms ,kids, daughters who successfully prevented their own deaths with a gun.(God knows no republicans in office would ever put together such a live video)
Like the 911 woman in GA who shot the turd in the face 5 times.
Victim impact statements are effective.
I like that saying. Thanks.
Obummer can use other people’s kids as political props, but nobody can use his in a political ad.
The 1st Amendment is to be used at Obama’s discretion and his media pressitute pretorian guard only as THEY see fit.
To H E L L with softening reality.
Ain’t heard that in a month of Sundays.
Truth is an acid that really burns raw nerves.
If the NRA ad can save one kids life it is worth it. That is what barry has been saying all week about his nonsense
Hahaha! Looks like the NRA hit a nerve. Good!
