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.

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.

I'd agree in return for not using our kids as pawns either.

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.

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.

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.

Cowardice???? Here's cowardice, as practiced by tyrants past and present - use the innocence of children to conceal the evil of a dead soul. Of course, compared to J.V. Dzhugashvili, Soetero is a very weak sister.

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”

Is this ad running anywhere besides an obscure outdoor channel with a couple thousand subscribers who all own guns anyway?

In other words, the repugnant and cowardly people in the White House are upset about an NRA ad.
