    Obama plans to surround himself with children during gun control announcement

    Obama has hit a new low of cheesedickery.

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced this afternoon that President Obama will unveil a “concrete package” of gun control proposals including assault weapons bans, high capacity ammunition magazine bans, and closing loopholes on background checks.

    “They will be joined by children around the country expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents,” Carney confirmed.Source
    I personally think using children to illicit an emotional response from the US in order to make the announcement go over smoother is a pretty despicable tactic. I'm reminded of:



    What say you?

    The tactic is transparent, and cheezy... reflecting the character we have in the White House. He's no uniter, he's Marxist who would fit better, far better with the Communists in the Greek parliament.

    But hey... when ignoramuses of Parasite Nation elect a Marxist, regular Americans have to do everything in their power to send Republicans in Congress a clear message... slow down or stop our Supreme Leader or your ass is grass.

    If Republicans are not willing to defend The Constitution of the United States of America, and with it America, then what good are you? You're simply an extension of Parasite Nation. We do not need Republicans to "get along", we need them grow a form a firewall against Parasite Nation and their Marxist leader.

    it's pathetic, he is just trying to fuel the emotions of those governed by them anyway.

    He is doing everything he can to milk this crisis. I find it disgusting but not suprising.

    Obama surrounds himself by kids while removing our rights.

    Unless you were appointed or getting a medal, you should not be standing on the stage with the President.

    I hope a few of the kids are up there yawning or doing stupid things that kids do. Props are annoying.

    Re: Obama surrounds himself by kids while removing our rights.

    Talk about exploiting the children.

    From the so called story:

    "They will be joined by children around the country expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents," Carney confirmed.
    What was actually said:

    "They will be joined by children from around the country who wrote the President letters in the wake of that tragedy expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents," Carney confirmed.
    Why don't you all come right out and say that you hate those children and the President alike ?

    The truth shall set you free.

    Re: Obama surrounds himself by kids while removing our rights.

    Kids don't know **** about life, the Constitution or guns. The only reason he got letters from them is because their liberal teachers gave them an assignment in English class.

    Obama is a despicable human being for taking advantage of these children to further his liberal agenda.

    He should be ashamed of himself...but he isn't.

    Do you have any idea how many people, including children write the president? He doesn't bring any of the others on TV with him. He's bringing them up there as an emotional ploy to smooth over his upcoming very unpopular executive orders.

    We don't look to children for our answers on constitutionality, or really even answers on anything. I'd put the chances of them writing the president over gun control without provocation from a teacher or parent at about zero.

    I wonder if before he signs it he'll turn to the children and loudly proclaim "I'll protect you from those bad evil men with guns!"
