You know, out here where the unimportant people live.
Obama's kids have 18 armed guards at their school.
Rahm Emanuel likewise.
Yet these are the people decrying the "violence" of people who carry guns in their own circles.
Here's the script from the ad:
Are the president’s kids more important than yours? Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he’s just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security."Here's the ad:>
Krauthammer and his compatriots (and others on FNC) claimed the ad was bizarre and inappropriate because you shouldn't go after the president's kids. They aren't fair game, so to speak, so you shouldn't even mention them in an ad, even though the President is comfortable hauling them out for photo ops about oil spills and guns.
Krauthammer and all the liberal media who've ganged up on the NRA are completely missing the point.
It's really not about denying security to the POTUS's children. Of course reasonable citizens support that.
It's about our ability to have the same security opportunities for OUR children.
Monstrous, the contributors claimed of the NRA ad (not unlike Rupert Murdoch's exclamation that someone has to do something about guns in America).
But they did not address the issue. Obama pulls his kids into any argument he wants, then claims that his kids are never to be discussed. He sends his daughter to Mexico at the cost of millions of dollars with lots of (very needed) security. Then the White House demands any pictures of the daughter on vacation be pulled from the internet.
Funny how that works.
And FNC's commentators don't seem to get the fact that people can seriously be angry that there is an elite class in this country that sets the goodies aside for themselves, spending vast sums as we spiral into financial oblivion and has a different set of rules for themselves than they do for us.
Like Al Gore, they profit from the misery of others, seeking to ingratiate themselves to remain in the elite class while abandoning the people who pay for everything.
No, we're back to go. Back to the beginning of the Tea Party.
And FNC needs to be called out for their offenses, just like everyone else.
