    Here's the text:

    You will note it is not attacking the Presidents' kids, but rather the President's liberal elite hypocrisy in assuming that he has the right to ensure that his children be protected but you shouldn't have the right to protect yours.

    ...aaaaand once again, the hyperventilating overreactors break Godwins Law and only end up making themselves look stupid. Do you have any idea how your side looks like a bunch of idiot ninnies right now?






    this is the anti-gun side, right now.
    Why is it suddenly liberal to want to protect the President from the harm of whoever seeks to harm him or his family? The populist message adopted by the NRA's recent advertising campaign is too radically liberal and democratic for me. At least within the Bush administration, we had populist conservatives that respected protecting the President of the United States and his family, and it was the liberals that were so utterly focused on the evils of the top. Don't tell me I need to start siding with the Democrats again. I just got done severing the cord.

    I have no doubt that you find it questionable.

    That you don't just exposes the partisan blinders you wear.

    Any politician that puts on such a dog and pony show should be questioned as to the authenticity of their claims. I'd put money down that all those kids parents are registered (D)'s...

    But don't get me wrong, it's the same BS the right pulls from time to time. Maybe one day you'll see the BS for the BS it is, even among the people you like and support.

    I don't know if someone wrote them for them, or coached them through it. It really doesn't matter though, the point is the president USED them for political purposes.

    the president represents them just as he represents those who have reached the age of emancipation
    the president shared the opinions of those school children with us
    why is that a problem?

    Honestly, because children know two things about how the world works: jack and ****. They need to sit down and STFU and let the adults talk... and the adults need to quit exploiting them this way.

    As I said, I expect the vast majority of these alleged letters were written at the direction of a parent, teacher, or someone else pushing their agenda.

    In any case WTF does a 8-10yo know that we need to hear... most of them don't know real life from Sims 2.

    If that were true, then it merely points to opposition being even more widespread than just children.
    Don't work out, work in.

    How many letters were there? A few dozen teachers pushing students to write could generate hundreds.


    Record guns sales and record new NRA sign-ups are more siginficant of how much opposition there is.
