White House calls NRA ad
that makes reference to Obama´s
daughters ´repugnant and cowardly´

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:tocsin, 1/16/2013 4:26:01 PM

Washington - The White House says a National Rifle Association video that makes reference to President Barack Obama´s daughters is "repugnant and cowardly." Obama spokesman Jay Carney says most Americans agree that a president´s children should not be used as "pawns in a political fight." Carney was referring to an online video from the pro-gun lobby that calls Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for having armed Secret Service agents protect his daughters at school while voicing skepticism about installing armed guards in all schools. The NRA released the video ahead of Obama's

I must be stupid.

The White House claims that "a president´s children should not be used a pawn´s in a political fight."

but...

it is ok for the President today to trot out someone else´s kids to be a photo op as pawn´s in a political fight?

Got it. Our king´s kids are more important than the people´s kids.

Jay
It may be news to you in the Whitehouse who have been wearing blinders, but you and your boss are hypocrites for using someopne elses children as campaign props to sell an unconstitutional program.
These kids are the ones who will have to live their lives in a controlled, managed society in lieu of the freedom we have enjoyed in the past.

The NRA was perfectly justified in making reference to B.O.´s two kids, Mahalia and Sacagawea (or whatever the hell their names are). The other points were well taken also. Job well done, NRA.

Once again the WH tries to change the subject without answering the original item. Guess what 0bama you´re beginning your exit from the political stage cuz the vast majority of Americans are or are finally beginning to see what a smug, lying manipulator you truly are. My God you and your administration know no shame whether its the woman 0bama was comforting after Hurricane Sandy for the photo op during the election and now children surrounding you on stage - seems to me you guys will do anything and I do mean anything. You people make me sick and outraged at the same time....

The irony is even more strange. Should a lunatic show up at BO´s kids´ school, the Secret Service protection and those provided to other kids from the political elite would be armed to take out someone before they even entered the classroom.

My question is why are his kids and those at that school more important than any of the children in any of the other schools in the US?

Oh, wait...I know why...because "I won."

The point of the NRA ad. was not the President´s daughters, but that the President appears satisfied with his kids have heavily armed protectors while at that high end private school, while the President and the liberal Democrats apparently don´t give much credence to armed resource or security officers being stationed in just regular old public schools where the average family´s kids attend school.

There is absolutely no doubt that the very high level publicity given to the Sandy Hook murders by an obvious mentally ill individual have spawned a number of copy cat multiple murders and that in the short term the public schools are at risk from dangerous mentally ill persons going on their own personal suicide missions, coming up with ideas that to get the utmost attention, committing murders at schools before they take their own lives is the way for them to go. Right now armed resource or security officers in public schools is the only way to combat that threat.

Haven´t seen the ad and don´t really care.

But any explicit mention of his family is probably a losing tactic, the MSM will attack the NRA for it.

Even so, it is true. Didn´t the SS accompany Chelsea while she went to Stanford? Maybe they still do.

Politicians are not like the rest of us. They have armed guards.

The Budget Sequester Is a Success
Wall Street Journal, by Stephen Moore    Original Article
Posted By: tocsin- 8/12/2013 5:10:02 AM     Post Reply
The biggest underreported story out of Washington this year is that the federal budget is shrinking and much more than anyone in either party expected. Consider the numbers: According to the Congressional Budget Office, annual outlays peaked at $3.598 trillion in fiscal 2011. After President Obama´s first two years in office, many in Washington expected that number to hit $4 trillion by 2014. Instead, spending fell to $3.537 trillion in fiscal 2012, and is on pace to fall below $3.45 trillion by the end of this fiscal year (Sept. 30). The $150 billion budget decline of 4%

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon moved Tuesday to ease the pain of mandatory, unpaid furloughs that civilian employees have had to bear for a month because of budgetary pressures, cutting the number of days off from 11 to six. Defense officials said the Pentagon found sufficient savings in the final months of the current fiscal year to lessen the burden on those who have had to take a day off a week without pay since early July. As a result, the final furlough day for most workers will be next week.

It has been a busy few weeks for the Securities and Exchange Commission. In May, the SEC charged two cities—Harrisburg, Pa., and South Miami, Fla.—with securities fraud for allegedly deceiving investors in their municipal bonds. This follows similar fraud charges against states, New Jersey in 2010 and Illinois in March, after SEC investigators uncovered what they called "material omissions" and "false statements" in bond documents related to those state´s pension funds. With Harrisburg, however, the SEC has gone further and charged the city government with "securities fraud

Lois Lerner, the IRS official in charge of tax-exempt groups, took her too-clever-by-half act to Congress yesterday and may have waived her right to claim her Fifth Amendment privilege in the process. Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, she couldn’t resist citing a little history, bragging on her public service, instructing the committee as to the purpose of the Fifth Amendment, and proclaiming her innocence of everything the committee might be interested in — all before asserting her Fifth Amendment privilege. Chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) was a bit taken aback.

Earlier this year, the Government launched the clasp for those who had taken part in the air offensive during the Second World War, but stopped short of awarding a medal, as campaigners had been calling for. But figures suggest that barely half of those eligible for the lesser award have so far applied, with veterans snubbing the “pathetic” award. (snip)only a clasp, rather than a medal, as “cheese-paringly” mean, adding: “What did those men do except lay down their lives for their duty? My father would have been raging – I know that to be sure.”

A jury in Pennsylvania has convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell of three counts of murder, one count of involuntary manslaughter, and several counts of performing illegal late-term abortions at his facility in West Philadelphia. Gosnell is eligible for the death sentence, an end that would be as close to justice as earthly powers can mete out in this episode. The English language does not contain a word sufficient for describing the crimes of Kermit Gosnell; “murder” will do, but only for legal purposes. Gosnell’s human abattoir is the logical endpoint of our morally fraudulent national approach to abortion,

The expanding Internal Revenue Service scandal could hardly be any more Drudgeriffic. Well, maybe if in addition to singling out groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, the agency had purchased a few billions rounds of hollow-point ammo. Maybe then. But even as is, the scandal is looking pretty bad and getting worse. The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that the IRS also “scrutinized conservative groups for raising political concerns over government spending, debt and taxes or even for advocating making America a better place to live.” We’ll see where this eventually goes.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
