Yes, it was completely normal and appropriate.
Yeah, it was ok, but I'd prefer that children were not involved like that.
No, it was total emotional exploitation.
I cannot decide.
Whacked out liberal politicians are the only father figures that liberal children have.
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
Back on the topic of over the top rhetoric, one anti-gun dude said that pro gun folks were all murderers. You'd agree that's pretty extreme, right?
I sincerely hope you're right.Banning sale and manufacture is not taking any one's guns.
I don't think so.
It's not fair or right to use children that way.
But beyond that, I don't know why the hell politicians think this makes them look better.
I want someone who is fit for the most powerful office in the world. Someone with ethics, but a stony disposition and decision-making process.
Showing me what a sweet daddy you are does not fit the bill. Sorry.
I don't want someone who comes off (or wants to come off) as "daddy" -- or "mommy," for that matter. Those people should stay home and play house. I want a commander in chief.

I've come to expect the "dog and pony show" that has become American politics anymore. They've been doing it for quite awhile with the catch phrases, photo ops and handlers. They're as much actors as real heads of state. I don't like that they do these things but it doesn't shock me that much. People want these leaders to be all goody goody, PC, smiling BS artists. Give them someone real with all the warts and moles and they would faint. Though this stuff using the kids letters did go a bit far in the phony bologna arena.
