WASHINGTON, Jan 16 (Reuters) - The White House condemned as "repugnant and cowardly" an ad by the National Rifle Association that mentions President Barack Obama's children as receiving armed Secret Service protection.
The ad comes as Obama unveils sweeping efforts to reduce gun violence that are for the most part opposed by the NRA, the nation's leading gun rights group. The ad accused Obama of hypocrisy for having the Secret Service protect his children while opposing the NRA's call for more armed guards in schools.

“Most Americans agree that a president’s children should not be used as pawns in a political fight.”
Why not? He’s using ours.
>> Most Americans agree that a president’s children should not be used as pawns in a political fight.
LOL! But don’tca know, it’s OK if he uses a group of America’s children that way in his signing ceremony.
Who’s the coward, again?
TURN UP THE HEAT! The Liberals use underhanded and disgusting attacks against Conservatives ALL THE TIME. Turn the tables on them, and they complain we’re being “unfair.”
Liberalism is a mental disease.
He actually said this on the same day they released letters from little kids, and are going to use them as props for the announcements today?
Apparently, it isn’t tasteless to dance in the blood of children to forward a political agenda.
“...repugnant and cowardly...”
Not to mention ...niggardly with respect to defense spending.
Jay Carney lashing out like only a drama queen can.
The White House has been badly stung by this, it’s proof positive that the NRA ad is very effective.
Well you have to admit that if there is anyone that know about being repugnant and cowardly, it’s our president.
I just joined the NRA and so did my wife and we made a donation.this Ad drives home the hypocrisy of the left and is winning the public to the grotesque double standard of the left. The Children at Sandy Hook died because no one had a gun to kill the kook.
Obama unveils sweeping efforts to reduce gun violence.Like fast and furious ?.
Let them eat cake?
We can tell you right now that the truth is the truth, whether repugnant or not.
Well I can’t say what I think of this F in the white house or number one I’ll get put in time out by some censor here or else some damn gub mint thug will visit me. Suffice it to say this guy is lower than whale shit.
Just like this guy.
The nobles get armed protection, but not the serfs.
“Prole children are not human beings. But they make nice props.”
Jay Carney, minitrue, WH.
Sign the WH petitions for a Gun Free Zone around the WH, president, VP, etc.
Also.... suggest that all outspoken critics of gun ownership place signs in the lawn declaring:
“My Home is Proudly a Gun Free Zone”
But it’s okay for Dear Leader to hide behind children.
