Oh noes, Republicans!! Bush used children as political props!!
Quote:Republicans are comparing President Obama to Hitler and Stalin and claiming that he used children as political props yesterday, while ignoring George W. Bush’s use of child political props to veto stem cell research in 2006.
<...>

Fox News was “disgusted” by Obama’s use of children as political props.
The problem is that none of these conservatives seemed to have a problem with children joining the president on stage when George W. Bush did it in 2006 to announce his veto of stem cell research.

Here is how the Pensito Review described Bush’s attempt to divert attention away from the real victims of his veto, “In a cynical attempt to focus the public’s attention away from the estimated 100 million mostly adult Americans suffering from diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s who could have benefited from the research, the president’s political operatives filled the room with a dozen or so “snowflake” children who were born from frozen embryos reclaimed from fertility clinics. The craven use of these children as political props became acutely ironic when Bush said of them, “These boys and girls are not spare parts.” Indeed, the children were not spare parts — they were red herrings.”

When Obama had children join him on stage, he was Hitler, Mao, and Stalin all rolled into one Kenyan package, but when Bush did the exact same thing for political cover in an attempt to justify an unpopular veto, he was “protecting innocent life.”

Bush was posing for a photo-op with children when the 9/11 attacks happened. Coincidence?

Yes, of course it's a coincidence. This is dumb.

Every politician uses children as "props." They also use women, police officers, fire fighters, veterans, old folks and everyone else you can think of as "props." They do what they have to do to get their agenda through. To have outrage because Obama had some children around him at a press conference only shows not just what hypocrites they are, but how they are blinded by hate - and how full of shit they are!
