From the “Give Me a Break” file, White House representatives and media in Washington are wringing their hands over an ad from the NRA that mentions the President’s daughters.
White House spokesman Jay Carney denounced the ad in a statement. “…to go so far as to make the safety of the president’s children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly.â€ť
Reading that, one might expect little Sasha’s and Malia’s faces to be featured prominently. One might predict ad hominem attacks on the children personally. One might brace themselves for the vicious attack on the First Daughters – for the hateful barrage ofÂ ill wishes and insults towards those poor children that are certain to be forthcoming.
Hmm…take a look and judge for yourself.
Protection for Obama’s kids and gun-free zones for ours….If anything is repugnant, it’s the belief that his children are entitled to safety and security while the less famous and wealthy children must take their chances in buildings that advertise their defenseless nature with signs proclaiming them gun-free zones.
The White House is probably hoping that people hear the statement and condemn the NRA and all the “gun nuts” and decide that the ad must be offensive without even seeing it.
Apparently when a logical rejoinder can’t be found, feigned indignant outrage and a statement Â that “a president’s children should not be used as pawns in a political fight” is the only response.
