Happy Fatherís Day: President Obama and his daughter play with toy guns
Daily Caller ^ | June 16, 2013 | Robby Soave

Posted on 06/17/2013 8:01:44 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

Wishing Americans a happy Father’s Day, the White House tweeted a picture of President Obama and one of his daughters playing with toy water pistols.

The Tweet comes at a time when several schools around the country—fearful that such toys make kids more prone to violent behavior—have launched trade-in programs that encourage children to exchange their harmless toy guns for chances to win prizes, like books and bicycles.

One such trade-in took place last weekend at Strobridge Elementary in California. Principal Chris Hill, who organized the event, explained that toy guns desensitize kids toward gun violence.

This is only a test, have this image printed on a t-shirt and send your little one to school wearing it.

How many liberals' heads will have a conniption fit trying to figure out if it is acceptable or not?

Can we suspend the President for this? Seems only fair.

Meanwhile kids are being suspended and/or expelled for pastry gun, NRA T-shirt (possible 1 year jail sentence) and merely playing cops and robbers.

“How many liberals’ heads will have a conniption fit trying to figure out if it is acceptable or not?”

They’ll simply say it’s “obviously been photoshopped”.

Interesting how they tweeted a picture from 2011. What, they don’t have any newer pictures of Obama being a great dad for Father’s Day?

I thought at least one of the years, Mr. Obama spent the day with his golf buddies rather than Michelle and the kids.

Why do they Tweet an old pic? Did he even spend time with his supposed family? A real father would not spend so much playing golf on weekends when he could be spending time with his family.

This is a Photoshop opportunity: Put an NRA Tee-Shirt on the POTUS, then put him in jail for a year like the school kid. Will Barry’s girls be kicked out of Sidwell Friends School for playing with toy guns?

The gun looks like a Bolt Pistol from Warhammer 40,000. Very fitting for a high-ranking Commissar.

Thanks for the ping. So, the photo is from father's day 2011, but the White House decides to tweet it two years later? It's so obviously intended to be a poke in the eye of conservatives. How pathetic!

He’s being insensitive to all the victims of gun violence.
His actions in using a gun—toy or not—and arming his child, show a lack of compassion for others.
After the weekend in Chicago and what happened in NYC, well, he’s a racist.
He just doesn’t ‘get it.’

Bailiff—whack his Reggie/Larry lovin’ pee-pee!

Barry's not holding a 'toy water pistol' in that photo. Nope, not even close. That's his;

Colt-Kimber-Wesson model Z, .67 Cal fully-auto Assault Handgun in gunmetal gray with the Std Presidential Orange 20 Round Magazine and matching Sound Suppressor.
The POTUS uses that gun when he goes on his monthly Tiger Hunts in India and Siberia. "The president is a life long Big Game hunter and likes going Mano-a-mano against the biggest cat in the world". (Jay Carney).

Yes it does! Barry’s magazine is the very deadly 32 Fluid Ounce, extended profile, hi capacity H2O weapon loading device! (They are banned in all of hussein’s 57 states due to their pure nastiness of course!)
