Remember When Bush Used Children as Political Props in Stem Cell Research Veto?
Jason Easley, Jan. 17th, 2013
Republicans are comparing President Obama to Hitler and Stalin and claiming that he used children as political props yesterday, while ignoring George W. Bush’s use of child political props to veto stem cell research in 2006.
An editorial from Investors Business Daily raged, “Instead of providing them the same armed security his children get, the president exploits children as stage props to repeal a Second Amendment they haven’t been, and likely never will be, taught about.”
Fox News was “disgusted” by Obama’s use of children as political props:
The problem is that none of these conservatives seemed to have a problem with children joining the president on stage when George W. Bush did it in 2006 to announce his veto of stem cell research.
