Obama And The Kids -- Standing On the Bodies Of Dead Ones, Hiding Behind Live Ones

After four years of doing nothing on gun control, Barack Obama took the first convenient post-election opportunity to make limiting the Second Amendment freedoms of America a priority. That this meant trampling the bodies of recently dead children in order to use them as the platform upon which he would stand in order to promote an anti-gun agenda doesn't matter to him -- after all, there are now no political repercussions to such shamelessness..

And in order to suppress dissent and prevent hard questions from anyone in the media who might be inclined to ask them when he announces his executive orders and legislative wish-list on guns, the President has decided to make sure that he is surrounded not just with armed Secret Service agents, but also with an impenetrable shield of little kids.

"Tomorrow the president and vice president will hold an event, here at the White House, to unveil a package with concrete proposals to reduce gun violence and prevent future tragedies like the one in Newtown, Connecticut," announced spokesman Jay Carney. "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."

Any reporter who dares to ask a challenging question will no doubt be met with "Why don't you explain to these children why you think letting killers have weapons of mass murder is more important than their being allowed to grow up free from gun violence" or some similar piously fraudulent answer. And any challenging give and take will be unable to happen with a bunch of little kids surrounding the President.

Moreover, you and I all know that the disingenuousness of surrounding Obama with a bunch of kids "who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy, expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety." They most likely didn't write that -- or at least not of their own accord. Either parents or an activist teacher did so -- or prompted them to do so -- and then mailed those letters off in an effort to astroturf the issue. Such letters are akin to the one I wrote to President Lyndon Johnson supporting the troops fighting in Vietnam when I was four years old and my father was deployed in the war zone. -- I was not particularly versed int he details of the conflict nor clear on why there were people protesting against the war, I just loved my daddy and wanted the President to know that.
