NRA: Obama an "Elitist Hypocrite," Children Attend School With Armed Guards

The National Rifle Association released a video Tuesday calling President Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for being skeptical of armed guards in schools when his daughters receive armed Secret Service protection every day.

"Are the president's kids more important than yours?" a narrator asks. "Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools? Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security."

    Does the Secret Service have to go to 7-round magazines in New York?

    No fan of the idea of (presumably paid) LEOs just hanging around schools with nothing to do, but I'll give the NRA a gold star for attacking Obama via his kids. If ever there were a time to get down in the trenches with the POS formerly known as Barry, it's when he's demagoguing atop a pile of dead children.

    But in his defense, BHO didn't personally approve the murders of this mound of kids. So he's got that much going for him.

    Right, not THIS particular mound.
