THE POSITION OF THE PRESIDENT AND ALL CABINET MEMBERS + MEMBERS OF CONGRESS OF BOTH PARTIES REPRESENT THE WORST OF TWO FACES HYPOCRITES IN THEIR STAND ON THIS AD. LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT MY GRANDKIDS ARE WORTH MILLIONS MORE THAN THE OBAMA GIRLS EVER WERE OR EVER COULD BE. IF SUGGESTED TO THE PRESIDENT THAT ALL ARMED GUARDS - SECRET SERVICE OR OTHERWISE BE ELIMINATED UNTIL WE PUT ARMED GUARDS IN THE SCHOOLS. SAYING ARMED GUARDS ARE NECESSARY TO PROTECT THE POLITICAL OFFICIALS OF AMERICA AND THAT ARMED GUARDS ARE NOT NECESSARY FOR MY AND EVERYONE ELSES KIDS AND GRANDKIDS IS HYPOCRITICAL. IT'S ALSO B.S. AND THE PRESIDENT KNOWS IT AND SO DOES ALL AMERICA AND SO DOES THE N. J. GOVENOR.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is apparently up in arms because the National Rifle Association released an ad asking simple yet important question: If President Obama’s kids are protected by professional armed guards -- why can’t yours be, too?

I agree with the governor on a number of substantive points, but here are two things to consider:

1. The NRA -- at no point during their advertisement -- explicitly attacked Sasha and Malia Obama by name. Yes, they imply that the “president’s children” -- because of who they are -- have certain...
