A while back, the satire site The Onion produced this story about Obama’s re-election efforts playing on sympathy for his children: Obama begs voters not to make his daughters switch schools

Sure enough, Team Obama must have seen that and thought “hey, that’s a good idea!” Because now we’re seeing the President’s daughters more and more:


Why willingly drag your kids into what’s sure to be a nasty, ugly mess? It’s called desperation:

A new Internet ad by the president’s reelection campaign features a portrait of the first family asking supporters to “help the Obamas stand up for working Americans.” The appeal, a departure from the typical Obama messaging, provides an early glimpse of the role the president’s wife and daughters are likely to play in his campaign.

In the months to come, political strategists expect to see the first family used as a political asset.

“The value of the family is enormous,” said Democratic pollster Celinda Lake. “The more you know this family and the more you think of Barack Obama in these terms, the harder it is to vilify him.”

During his presidency, Obama’s children have rarely been featured in such an overtly political way. He has been pointed about leaving family members, especially his children, out of politics. But with the first lady enjoying high popularity, his family may become an important factor this year.

Well heck, if they think they have to bring in FLOTUS and the girls because they’re a lot more popular than you-know-who, I can help the Obama campaign make the above ad even more effective:


You’re welcome.

    Obama isn't standing up for working Americans, he's standing on them and grinding them under his heel.

    Nice work on the photo edit. There's not enough room in one picture for Barack's ego and Michelle's ass anyway.

    So are the new ads going to feature vacation photos from Aspen, Hawaii, spain, Africa, etc?

    He'll whore is own daughters if it served his purpose. The guy is without morals or character. Nothing good about him. I cannot say it enough, I despise him and it's getting painful waiting to cast my vote against him.

    Voters were inquisitive last time and without the usual vetting, which Joe and Jane voter relies on the press to do, didn’t know what to expect. That’s not going to happen again. This time the smart voters are angry and you can bet there won’t be any hanging chads.

    Maybe TheLiberalMerde will show up again to remind us of what morons we are.

    You don't need to doctor an Obama family photo to get one without Barack in it… just take a picture of them on a ski vacation.

  7. backwoodsconsr on February 21st, 2012 6:35 pm

    Obama can't balance well enough to ski. He keeps falling off to the left.

    And what "perfection" the Obamas and BHO in particular are ! TLM strikes me as our version of MM`s ILoveMyGranny`sPanties !

  9. SignPainterGuy on February 21st, 2012 9:51 pm

    YES, Thanks for the blue-out, Doug ! 25% less disgusting !

    Bringing the kids into the campaign after saying he wouldn`t and others shouldn`t proves he`s a liar and extremely desperate !

    I agree with Misscheryl, I`d give up the next 8 months to be able to vote tomorrow and kick the Obamas marxist butts out of OUR house !

    Remember his moto is (paraphrasing): just as long as they don't get punished with a baby.

    Right, post-Coronation Teh Wun made clear His children were not be dragged into the fray. The Civility Police's first act under the Office Of Transition!

    Unless of course Moochelle needed them for the day to lube her multi-billion dollar Lunch/Boodle program greasing SEIU votes along the way..? Think how reviled they'll become post-ouster.

    The GOP winner needs to name each and every piece of corrective legislation, "The Obama Economic Policy Expungement Act of 2013". The Obama Social Justice Eradication Act of…

  12. SignPainterGuy on February 21st, 2012 11:23 pm

    Oh, buddy, you`re talkin` my language ! How `bout we just make it simple and start with the "Everything Obama Did Expungement Act" !?

  13. patti on February 21st, 2012 11:42 pm

    If voters make the mistake a second time to "Help the Obamas stand up for working Americans," they can rest assured that the Obamas will remain sitting for four more years, and there will be even fewer "working Americans" for them to not stand up for.

    Therefore, let's hope the Obamas keep right on sitting, but do it somewhere besides the White House; maybe then all Americans can finally move forward by standing up for themselves.

    Hey Obama is serious. He needs to stand up for those few working Americans left…they are the ones footing all the bills for the freeloaders and moochies out there.

  15. Truesoldier__ on February 22nd, 2012 12:14 am

    And it could be a one page bill. It states that all legislation passed into law from innaguration day 2009 until innaguration day 2013 is herefore expunged from the record and shall never be spoke of within the halls of Congress again.

  16. SignPainterGuy on February 22nd, 2012 12:36 am

    No argument, but I would prefer that after EVERYTHING he`s done is expunged, the story of it would be told on the nightly news, papers, interwebs, billboards, radio, fliers, bus posters ……. so Americans will never forget his and the marxist`s crap !
