Keith Koffler | Obama’s Execrable Use of Children to Sell His Gun Proposals





At many White House events, whoever the president is, there appear what we in the White House press corps call “the sob stories.”

These are the people who are supposedly adversely affected by the status quo, which the president hopes to change with his brilliant new initiative. Often the sob stories will speak, detailing how they incurred some profound tragedy from which only the president – with the cooperation of Congress – can rescue them.

The sob stories, whether they know it or not, are being manipulated to advance the president’s agenda. They may fully understand and support the president’s plans, or they may not. But they are being used as props for the benefit of the big guy.

That’s why rarely are the sob stories children. Because manipulating children for a politician’s gain is generally held to be a bad thing to do.

But not by this White House.

It is such a revolting juxtaposition of reality and lies as to create an immediate Cognitive Dissonance that should register on the Richter Scale.
