    Exploitation of children is common by Socialists:

    Looking at the Fidel Castrato photo... gave me an idea that could make someone a millionaire. Start producing Obama ears... a little like Mickey Mouse but much, much bigger. So large that you are imbalanced. Of course... the left ear (wing) would be much larger to achieve the right effect of being imbalanced.

    Would be the next Halloween hit. Couple it with a dunce hat with propeller and a copy of the Commi Manifesto and you'd be on your way to being an impersonator of our Little Marxist.

    Of course... on the pack you'd have to add... for the benefit of Obamatrons... Kool-Aid and Children not included.

    It was propaganda plain and simple. A disgusting and honest display of government's tactic with the people the past fee decades. Get them to respond emotionally so that they do not think about what they are doing.

    When watching yesterday, I was torn between counting the number of times that Biden nodded his head in agreement, or the number of times the word children was used.

    Years ago President Clinton was giving a speech... State of the Union, I think... and he made the comment (paraphrasing) that, "...and I am proud to announce that not one single nuclear warhead is pointed at an American child." (Then, he got that smug smirk on his face while everybody cheered. )



    I thought, "Am I, an adult, not worthy of safety and security?"
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    It was a blatant appeal to emotion. Everyone does it, because it works.

    Agreed. Who cares? Those kids will remember that forever. Let them have their 15 minutes. Sure, Pres Obama used them as props. So what? They got to hang out with the POTUS and be on TV. They "used" him too lol.

    The entire Obama presidency could be viewed as a rash appeal to emotion. If the electorate had used reason and careful thought to select a president, Obama would not hold the office today.

    A Liberal making an appeal to tradition? Hardly seems right.
