    The NRA advertisement was a brilliant, daring and effective challenge not only to the arrogant and overreaching president, but to the timorous Republicans and the media rabble.

    Brilliant and daring because the ad committed the taboo of actually mentioning that the president has children and they deserve and require armed protection. There were many among the easily terrified Republican class who squealed in dismay, although the children were neither named nor were they, wisely, pictured.

    But it was impossible to make a criticism of the ad that hit the mark clearly when Obama so tendentious lay assembled four little children as his personal shield. If he could make so exploitative a use, how could he then turn any criticism toward the NRA advertisement on the same grounds?

    This is the kind of gambit that should be seized by the GOP. After all, Obama gave the NRA the opportunity that the NRA wisely wielded. He warned that he was making cynical use of these children's and dared us to do anything about it. It's a mistake he will surely make again. All the GOP has to do is watch for the next opportunity and find the courage to use it.

    so, the GOP is bought and paid for by the NRA - whoever did not know it, knows it now.

    the ad was lowlife scum...

    and if you think the NRA is going to get anything but wingers approving of it, you're nuts...

    Well no..

    What it did was add to the long list of behaviors by conservatives and conservative organizations that have shown their racist and pitiful views.

    This is an historic first.

    And it goes along with all the other historic firsts.

    Good job boys.

    Not only are you folks digging your own graves, but you are positioning a boulder that will roll on top of it once you folks jump into it.
