Obama using kids as PR props
As a PR stunt, it’s hard to beat. Primary school kids used as props in the signing of executive actions. With a stroke of his pen, the president would make gun violence go away. A real magic marker!
The kids, no doubt, were awed by the camera-popping event. Ironic, isn’t it? The man giving them high-fives racked up a multi-trillion-dollar debt they will inherit.
As president, Obama should lead by example to discourage the culture of violence. Yet, he’s the 2008 campaigner who said, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” His 2010 campaign speeches were liberally laced with the word “revenge.” Citizens who disagreed with him were “enemies,” a term former presidents reserved for foreigners who plotted our country’s downfall.
