    Remember When.....

    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.

    • Elk......... I'm with you in your disgust for the level of public conversation about guns.

      I'm just halfway through the new book on Karl Rove---"Boss Rove". If you have a chance, read it. If you do, as a fellow Ohioan you'll understand when I say I'm ashamed I never understood just what had been perpetrated here in Ohio when the 2004 presidential vote was being contested. I was still working and didn't have the time I do now to read about political goings-on. Rove is my definition of a sociopath. But our mass-communication culture seems to be becoming a breeding ground for sociopathic behavior. Yesterday, when I saw the NRA ad on TV that used President Obama's children to "leverage" their message about our gun rights, I thought about Karl Rove's conscienceless approach to politics and political messaging in the media.

      Sure, politics is props. Innocent kids were killed in Connecticut, and so we can't use living kids to dramatizes the point that children are precious? And when President Obama tries to lead with a message that emphasizes the shameful sadness of gun violence, the NRA uses the president's daughters as props for their political message. Everyone has taken lessons from Karl Rove, it seems. Read the Rove book and you will understand the frame of mind that undermines our civility and respect for human values as we address each other. I understand what Obama said in Pennsylvania a few years ago about us as a people hiding behind our guns and our Bibles. I've got my 60-year old semi-auto .22 in the basement, and "Boss Rove" is my Bible right now.

    • Elk, the big load of grease and cigar stink Limpbone called President Obamas children on stage "human shields". Yet it was the educators, the adults at Sandy Hook Elementary who were the "human shields" as they tried to shield those 20 CHILDREN from that ASSAULT WEAPON called the BUSHMASTER as it riddled their 6 and 7 year old bodies with multiple bullets. I'd have to say that the NRA's use of President Obamas children in the propaganda commercial was an attempt to make the "targets" and the NRA should be prosecuted.
