NRA Ad Slams Obama as "Elitist Hypocrite"

by at . Comments

In advance of President Obama's gun control plan, The National Rifle Association preemptively released a new video labeling him an "elitist hypocrite." 

Obama, the ad says, enjoys Secret Service protection of his two daughters at school, yet is "skeptical" about installing armed guards in all schools.

The 35-second video is as harsh as any political campaign ad and illustrates how emotionally charged and personal the debate over gun control is.

The White House quickly blasted the NRA ad using Obama’s daughters to criticize the president on gun control as both “repugnant and cowardly."

As the president's children, Malia and Sasha Obama are entitled to Secret Service protection, and they receive it. But should every child in the U.S. then?

Obama never officially said he opposes more armed security guards at school, which the NRA recommended in the wake of the Newtown massacre.

But the President, who outlined significant reforms today, did say he's skeptical of the idea and added that such a step is not sufficient in curbing danger.

White House spokesman Jay Carney released a statement responding to the ad shortly before Obama outlined his new gun proposals this morning.

“Most Americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a political fight,” Carney said in a statement emailed to reporters.

He added that the group stooped too low, and “to go so far as to make the safety of the president's children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly.”

Gun control: Time for additional, stronger laws?

Yes- that's the scary part- THIS IS HIS BEST! The NRA is not the problem. The rich people are not the problem. Tea Party "Stroke" with conservatives is not the problem. The problem is Obama does not want to tackle the real problems. He want a higher debt ceiling, he wants to spend, he wants to keep the entitled satisfied. Until he can learn how to negotiate a way to put people to work and come to terms with the fact that "WE THE PEOPLE" will NEVER accept that spending your way out of debt as a solution then we will fight from now on! You Liberals need to Address the real problem! Crime rate leads to more demand for guns- so does lack of trust in Government. More Jobs= Less Crime, more entitlements leads to more pissed off tax payers.

True Americans are sick to shit of this President. He will sell out anyone and that includes his own party. He does not want to do anything but parade his arrogant ass around trying to tell citizens how to live. He will not Negotiate, only dictate. He doesn't know the constitution nor does he think it applies to him. He has earned no respect. Gun laws, immigration and energy- none of this means anything. Jobs-EMPLOYMENT is the only way to ease the pain. Obama is a failure followed by fools. We will not be apart of it and we will not bend.

"Jobs-EMPLOYMENT"................................................
Bush Sr. (with Republicans & Big Business) put in NAFTA but didn't finish it. Clinton signed it ... could have squashed it. Ross Perot in '92 warned of the flushing sound of jobs south. During Bush Jr 2 terms over 60,000 plants were closed. Not one Mexican plant (making American goods) was closed. Rich "job creators" like Meg Whitman billionaire (HP CEO who cut 28,000 jobs to offshore) continue to offshore every chance they can. .....................................................................
Tea party Republicans blocked a Democratic tax proposal designed to make it more difficult for companies to move jobs out of the country and easier to bring jobs to the U.S. . . . . . .. . . . . . . . .www dot bloomberg dot com/news/2012-07-19/senate-republicans-block-democrats-anti-outsourcing-plan.html

The Constitution does not sanction high-capacity semi-automatic assualt weapons.
Only the whackadoodle tea baggers from the Planet of Tea Bag "are sick to shit of this President".

Since you like to reference text- Please read the following:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed Did you pay attention to the last four words? Obviously not, the second amendment's intent is the right of the people to protect themselves from any harm and especially from tyrany. One last question for you...Do you believe in the Constitution? In my opinion you don't and would wipe your butt with it.
