White House Upset By Reference To Obama Daughters

The White House is upset by the use of the Obama daughter's on a poster advocating healthy lunches in public schools. Politics Daily reports:
"One day after the posters went up, White House Associate Counsel Karen Dunn and Deputy Associate Counsel Ian Bassin called PCRM President Neal Barnard to request he pull the campaign, according to The Post."

Did this organization, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, cross some line in referring to the President's daughters in the ad? My initial reaction is that they did not. I may not be seeing all the issues surrounding the use of the use of the duaghter but they are part of the image of the President. It does seem appropriate to highlight the disparity of choices between the privileged and those not privileged.

I am wrong?
