Obama White House Politicizes Mother’s Day


( – In this election year, even Mother’s Day presented a political opportunity for the Obama White House.

On Sunday, the White House Web site posted two Mother’s Day e-cards — “to help you show some appreciation for the mom in your life.”

The cards target two voting blocs that President Obama is actively wooing — women and the military.
One card touts the Democrats’ Affordable Care Act. “Being a mom isn’t a pre-existing condition. It’s a joy!” the card says. It also states that beginning in 2014, “it will be illegal to deny coverage to anyone with a pre-existing condition, or charge women more than men for health insurance.”

The second card mentions Joining Forces, a military-support project that First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, wife of the vice president, are promoting.
