The NRA launched a TV ad calling President Obama 'an elitist hypocrite' for being critical of putting armed guards in public schools while his daughters' school has them. Over the line?

HE IS THE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD! Of course his daughters are more important than ours. Have some respect.

It is ridiculous to think that gun control would solve any problem related to gun violence. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Guns just happen to be a convenient method for these lunatics.

Obama is not the hypocrite. What's hypocritical is only protecting the richest and the poorest (inner city) schools. I heard about drugs and guns being discovered at my old high school and it's very middle class. These days weapons and drugs are everywhere it seems. :(

Being called a hypocrite, is not inflammatory, incompetent, lacking in honesty, racist, those are just a few that are used about him. He should be happy to hear a mild term such as hypocrite, he probably hears worse from his wife.

He might have studied law at Harvard, but he must have voted present for the ethics classes. MrO has been a disappointment from the start. He promised to unite, then instead of inviting the minority party to dinner, he purposely called them names and locked them out of the discussions.

His wife called Americans obnoxious people when they first took office. That wasn't over the line? Freedom of speech is not just for the the Barack family.

Don't forget, he's a Harvard, constitutional law professor.

...and what is it you do?

Afterword, I'll decide who I should trust to make these types of difficult decisions.

You are correct calbama it's beautiful and thanks to the Democratically control of this beauty 850 billion in unfunded pension liabilities your surrender now would be most fitting, and yes send all your money to Sacramento before you surrender....... :)

Surrender to what authorities? The NRA? Why? Because I have a different opinion then you do? Sorry you don't agree with me but don't you think surrendering to the "authorities" is slightly extreme?

His job requires security based on the laws of the land! His family is included in the security. Why after all these years is the security of the first family being challenged??

Obama signed the extension that grants him SS protection past the 10 years that he had when he was elected. Clearly, he understands that armed protection works. Why is it good enough for him, but not for me? Jackass.

Not really. The guy is an elitist hypocrite. Look at how much taxpayer money we're spending on his inauguration, then compare it to Calvin Coolidge's swearing in. The man clearly thinks his shit don't stink.

Morganbaby: let's stop this question many people are asking, instead how about "why do YOU think your child are NOT as important as his?" Send ur kids to a school with security if your want. The school he chose had security all ready in place, security was not his placement.

NRA must not be that bad they get thousands of new members everyday. Good for them, I might join myself. I do contribute to them annually, why because I believe in our Constitution and this is one Amendment that people want gone. So p$&@ off if you don't like it. I don't have an alarm I have a Colt.

Wow the people that think Obamas kids are better than other kids, well if you think the NRA was over the line, try telling YOUR children that the presidents kids are more important than them. Tell you child when they are old enough, I hope your son/daughter slaps you when they get older.

It would be as disruptive and Kennedy's assassination. Within a few hours, the executive branch will start moving again. Don't forget we have 2 other branches of government and countless agencies. Just because there is a pause in one doesn't meant the government machine stops rolling

Incorrect. He could remove himself or with a majority vote of his cabinet or a majority vote of congress.

Don't assume where I get my info from. As a Soldier I swore to uphold the constitution and know it quite well, inside and out and frequently re-read it

However, that was a random act of violence which is unlikely. High risk targets are attacked by people with a plan.

Armynco you're an idiot. Read the 25th amendment and stop getting your "facts" from tv. The president does not get "removed automatically", he'd have to remove himself.

He could 'refuse' SS protection, but it would only be symbolic as they would protect him and his family anyway as they are required by law. The larger point is Obama agrees with providing schools with armed guards if they want them. Thanks for your input NRA, see, the president listens! :)

Yes, over the line! 1. Fact, he did not place the security at his kids school, That was the schools option. Which he will assist any school that wants this. 2.presidents have had security for their families since 1901, if you judge one, judge them all.
NRA, stop stretch truth for a scare tactic.
