“He’s encouraging you to feel your way through this debate, not think”: Will Cain slams Democrats for using Children as political props

by Sara J.

Here’s a pro-tip from President Obama:
When your political argument is guaranteed to fail under an ounce of scrutiny, be sure to bring out the kids. Lots and lots of cute, smiling, innocent little children.

Why would anyone do something so distasteful as to use one of the most violent acts in our history as a tool to pass legislation that merely ties the hands of law abiding citizens? As we saw with Obamacare, and the new gun regulations that were passed yesterday, because not only does it work, it silences your opposition.

As usual, the president’s fan club (aka the mainstream media) has failed to see how repulsive his tactics are in abridging the Second Amendment rights of law abiding Americans while surrounding himself with innocent children. The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary could easily be described as one of the most traumatic and disturbing violent acts to take place in America since 9/11. And yesterday, the president used that emotion to silence his detractors and inflame that emotion while presenting 23 new gun restrictions yesterday to the American people.

“Normally, the only time you see politicians showcasing children is during the campaign,” Carol Costello said when opening a segment on this issues yesterday on CNN.

Think about that. The only time you normally see children “showcased” is during campaigns. Why is that? Because they’re used as a tool to get votes, make politicians more friendly and appealing, or avoid conflict.

After 9/11, President George W. Bush was lambasted my the media for simply releasing a photo of himself on Air Force One speaking the phone not long after the attacks took place. Where’s the media outrage over surrounding yourself with innocent kids behind the podium follow the Sandy Hook massacre?

The left finds it outrageous that Rush Limbaugh, Rick Perry, our own Glenn Beck have spoken out against the president’s decision to use this tragic incident to pass pre-existing legislation, yet they all seem to have an opinion on the N.R.A.’s latest ad highlighting the hypocrisy of the president. The new add highlights the security of the president’s children compared to the average American. The president and the White House responded to that ad by calling it “repugnant and cowardly,” but they seem to have no problem with using the imagery of America’s children to pass their own agenda.

TheBlaze’s Will Cain, joined by Democratic strategist Maria Cardona, discussed the controversy with Costello on CNN yesterday.

Will Cain correctly pointed out that President Obama is using these children to shield himself from debate and inject emotion on specific incidences into a discussion that should be centered on the Constitution and the rights of Americans. Well, Cardona did nothing short of prove Will’s point by delivering one of the most emotional, red-faced, overreactions since Chris Matthews’s near temper-tantrum following President Obama’s first debate against Romney.

    Who says the presidents kids are off limits? It is only fair that our children are as protected as they are. They are not any better than our children and this president is not above the law as well as any of those people in the government. They work for us,not the other way around. Yes there were 20 children murdered by that idiot in Newtown and yes that is very greivous but where was his outrage at Aurora? Oh that’s right ,he was campaigning then and couldn’t afford to state his views on gun control then. He might have lost votes. Now he can use little children as his agenda for gun control!! What a bunch of sick human beings. I’m truely sorry for the loss of all those parents children but don’t let this president exploit their deaths. God bless all of you and help you find peace in your time of sorrow. My prayers and thoughts are with you as I know the loss of a child is the worse thing a parent can experience.  I know this by experience my ownself. Grief is a horrible thing. Obamas agenda is not the right path to the prevention of this happening again. Again ,God bless and keep you all in your time of grief and sorrow…….

    ‘Tis the progressive way, to use ANY means possible to brainwash its followers. This is exactly what America is becoming. Take a look at ANY communist country and see how their poeple live. America is becoming one of them very quickly.

    Will Cain told the true definition of Democrats today.Hide behind children to press your
    agendas.JFK would not be a member of this lack of profile in courage party.Sean Hannity
    said it best years ago.The Democrats like to dish it out but they don’t like to take the punch.
    I don’t hate President Obama but hes certainly no JFK.I don’t care what the Kennedy family
    today says.When the government is doing all it can to tear down rights for the sole purpose
    of control.They got one hellva problem.Patriots don’t sit.

    I agree that his children are no better than my two granddaughters or grandsons.  It is ok, however,  if his children, actors, sports elite, etc. can  have body guards all with weapons I might add, but our kids are second rate citizens.  Don’t think so.  I was totally horrified at the killings at Newtown, but I don’t see that  the lawful gun carrying Americans who are legal to carry weapons be penalized. .  Seems as though all legal gun carrying Americans are being punished for one nuts action.

    If one wanted to take down a country what better way than to destroy from within.  Mr. President you are well on your way. Sham on you for using the children. Did anyone notice they made sure of the ethnic diversity there?  The NRA ad may be  disturbing to some, but it is correct.  Do not all of our children deserve the same treatment in our school system.  As for those of Sandy Hook i feel sick that this happened to you loved ones.  So many things went wrong that should have been in place that day. The parents of the shooter whom knew of their sons mental illiness and then purchased guns and took him to shoot at a gun range. They should be the ultimate ones quilty.  I am sorry his mother paid the ultimate price for her lack of sense of wrong and right. The school for not knowing of an employees problem in a (small town ) everybody knows everybody.   Now the government says the mental health issues take the bottom of his gun control lists. I quess we know his adgenda. That should have been first since it was the basis of this shooting in the first place. Mr. President you could not have caused more controversy and anarchey in this country than what you did. I only hope Congress sees this for what it is propoganda  No one should take the 2 nd admendment away and this is a full blown start to such.  Soon we will all have to be microchiped so big government can access our minds and knowdledge at will.  It is a sad day for America. Remember the day after 9-11 everyone was proud to be american and we believed somewhat in the government to defend our country. Well that is now gone. 
     I know in my heart that if all guns were banned by law some other country would sell them to people in black market just as drugs now . If we cannot control the drug trade how the blue blazed are you going to control this  and with what  our good looks. We cannot affor anymore spending on programs we know already will not work or have the answere to now. Violence  has been a sin of mankind for centuries. Do we ban all photos of past battles and ban tv for the media reports on world affairs. Now some may say i am to extreme and that may be so, however violence is even in the bible. Oh excuse me i forgot there is seperation of church and state… 
     Now there may be some good points of Mr. Obahama’s outline better traing for schools and law enforcement. Here i would like to know whom is paying for this most state are broke. I would like all guns sold to have gun locks on them . I have not attended a gun show but would like to see some progress there.  Why cannot there be a waiting period there also and have the gun delivered when the check is passed.

    You can not argue with, reason with, discuss with Democrats that has neither conscience nor compunction, nor circumspection. That’s the sad and destructive situation in the U.S. today which makes political compromise difficult to impossible.

    I recall Sadam Hussien using kids as props too. I find it ironic Obummer uses kids to push his anti-2nd ammendment agenda while piling more debt on their backs daily. Equally hippocritical is his aversion for securing schools while his kids have that benefit.

    Once again, we see a White House misdirection. It didn’t appear to me that the president’s children were the target of a political attack by the NRA’s ad. I saw the attack directed at the elitism of the powerful.

    Will was absolutely correct. Osama is constantly playing on the emotions of the weakest among us; thinking that’s the solution to getting his way. He’s a cry baby that has hissy fits whenever anyone questions his motives.
