ONTD Political

Stay classy, National Rifle Association. The gun-lobbying group released a video on Tuesday that calls President Obama an “elitist hypocrite” for using Secret Service protection for his daughters.

“Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” the video asks. “Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools?”

The NRA denied that the ad is about Malia and Sasha Obama, with spokesman Andrew Arulanandam saying that "misses the point entirely." Arulanadam said the ad is about "keeping our children safe," and about the president's skepticism about schools having armed security guards when he and his family have them.

The White House called the ad "repugnant and cowardly" and spokesman Jay Carney said that the president's children should not be used as "pawns in a political fight."

Source has the original video. (I don't know how to embed, sorry.)

I wish we had a "don't pee on my foot and tell me it's raining" tag, because that's exactly how I felt when I read the NRA's claims that this ad is not about the Obama girls. (Yeah, RIGHT *massive eye rol*)
