RNC Valentines Day Cards Slam President Obama, Prominent Democrats

  @ashleyportero on

Love is not in the air between Republican and Democratic leaders in Capitol Hill, a fact the Republican National Committee was unafraid to advertise this Valentine's Day.  

During an appearance on Fox and Friends on Tuesday, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus emphasized the cards, which mock a variety of well-known liberal lawmakers, should not be interpreted as an insult to their political foes.

They're hilarious and it's meant in good fun, but I think we make a few political points as well, of course, said Priebus said.

The  cards, available on the RNC Web site, include a picture of a prominent Democrat followed by a supposedly lighthearted but obviously personal jab.

I have a short list of Valentines this year. reads a card poking fun at Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, who is illustrated with part of his face cut off in a reference to his short stature.

A card featuring Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, a vocal critic of the GOP, states Happy Tuesday, that's as sweet as I get while another depicting the embattled former Rep. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., shows him grimacing, followed by the caption, If anyone asks, I didn't send you this Valentine.

Democratic heavyweights such as Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Attorney General Eric Holder, and of course President Obama himself are also the butt of the RNC's Valentine's Day gag.
