So now Fox has fallen to the pits of attacking President Obama by making use of a lemonade stand. In their program ‘Fox and Friends’ the show went to the ultimate extent to rebuke President Obama’s earlier statement in which he said that a business needed infrastructure investment to succeed. "If you've got a business, you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen," he said.
Republican candidate Mitt Romney took the line out of context, and used it to attack the president for being anti-business. Fox and Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade turned to four-year-old Eliza and seven-year-old Clara Sutton, two little girls who run a lemonade stand to ask if they had government help when they founded the stand.
Kilmeade goes to every possible extent to prove his loyalty for the Republicans by asking the little girls, "Who helped you start this business?" later he asked, "Clara, how do you feel about the President saying that you needed help to start this business? And just speak from, speak from within." Clara responded that it is rude because of the hard work they had invested in building their business.
Even though Fox and Republicans might have achieved their purpose to an extent for attacking President Obama, all they should do is to stop using children for politically motivated objectives.
