President Obama and the First Lady were at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling a little earlier today helping deliver toys for the annual Toys-For-Tots campaign run by the U.S. Marine Corps.

Mark Knoller has photos of the event:

The “big elf.” That’s funny. But then…

Knoller continued with a second tweet on the president’s conundrum:

This is a charity program that looks to provide a little holiday cheer to the less fortunate, not a social engineering exercise.

In a perfect world, there is no issue giving a little girl a toy took kit if that gift fits her personality, but what if it doesn’t? Imagine if your son wanted the tool kit but received a Barbie doll instead from the Marines just because Pres. Obama decided that’s what he should get for Christmas.

This isn’t a perfect world and the president or members of the MSM should not use children at Christmas to further their agenda.
