No, it’s not what you think, but it is an Obama video that uses sex to try to get young women, more specifically brainless, young women, to vote for Barack Obama. (View the ad in the video beneath this post)
The new ad entitled “Your First Time” features Lena Dunham, a rising star among Hollywood’s liberalatzi, who compares a young woman’s decision to have sex for the first time, with a young woman’s first time voting. Afterall, it’s a very natural comparison, right?
The ad is perhaps the most desperate attempt yet to try to make sure that Barack Obama’s base turns out to vote for him in the same historic numbers that they did in 2008. For Barack Obama’s campaign that apparently means he must target a demographic that is not usually sought after… stupid people.
That is the only logical conclusion which one can draw from this latest commercial approved by the President and his campaign. In it, writer/actress Lena Dunham starts out by very suggestively saying “You’re first time shouldn’t be with just anybody”. Then she discusses the qualities a girl wants in the first guy she sleeps with. In this case she says you want a guy “who cares about whether you get healthcare, specifically birth control”. At one point Dunham even states; “You don’t want to do it with a guy who say’s ‘oh hey, I’m at the Library studying”, when really he’s not out there signing the Lilly Ledbetter Act.”
While the ad is not the x-rated porn flick intentionally suggested by the title of this post, it remains to be as inappropriate as any attempt to sincerely describe this new Obama ad as a sex tape. But with an election that is suppose to be about the future of our nation and the issues important to its future, does anyone really believe that it is appropriate for any serious political candidate to be actively comparing a young girls decision to have sex for the first time, to her first time deciding who to vote for? It is bad enough that our President runs around talking about Big Bird, binders and bayonets, instead of balanced budgets, block grants, and explaining Benghazi, but do we really need his campaign interjecting sexual intercourse in to the political intercourse?
The ad tries to be creative in a way that is similar to the eclectic HBO series that the actress in the ad writes and stars in. The series is called “Girls”.
One critic described the show as…
“a television program about the children of wealthy famous people and shitty music and Facebook and how hard it is to know who you are and Thought Catalog and sexually transmitted diseases and the exhaustion of ceaselessly dramatizing your own life while posing as someone who understands the fundamental emptiness and narcissism of that very self-dramatization.”
In other words, it’s a ridiculously stupid show about ridiculously stupid characters who put more thought into what they want to wear to bed than who want to go to bed with.
Yet here we have the Obama-Biden campaign using the person who writes and stars in this sleazy piece of pop-culture crap, trying to get young women to pick our President the same way they would if they were picking a partner to sleep with. Afterall, that’s how I decided who I wanted to vote for the first time I was able to cast my ballot for President back in 1988. It’s well known that back then I really wanted to sleep with George Herbert Walker Bush, so he got my vote. And in 1996, I was dyeing to go to bed with Bob Dole. Isn’t that the determining factor behind all of our votes?
Throughout this election, Barack Obama and his campaign have been doing everything they can to get women to vote for him. They have tried to paint Mitt Romney as a woman hating, slave driver, who will enact Sharia Law, wrap women up in burkas and cut their tongues out. They have tried to claim Romney discriminates against women, wants them to receive less pay than their male counterparts, and that he practically wants to rip their uterues out and ban the practice of abortion from sea to shining shining sea. What they don’t tell you is that while this White House pays its female staff 14% less than women, the Lilly Ledbetter law they brag about had nothing to do with equal pay for women but everything to do with giving women more time to accuse their employer of not giving them equal pay for equal work. What they don’t tell you is that all Lilly Ledbetter is, is a boondoggle for trial lawyers who can now make tons of money through the litigation of cases that exceeded their statute of limitations.
What they don’t tell you is that over the last four years, women have actually been victims of President Obama’s policies, not beneficiaries of his failed policies. Under President Obama women are suffering more than men when it comes to our continued stagnant economy.As recently pointed out by Paul Ryan, the poverty rate among women is at a seventeen year high and over five million women have recently been forced out of the workforce because of job killing policies.
What you don’t hear the Obama campaign telling you is the truth about the fact that fewer women are working today than there were when he took office. You don’t hear them telling the truth about how even if Mitt Romney did want to outlaw abortion in the law under all circumstances, he couldn’t because the most he could actually do is make it possible for the states to decide if they will or will not allow abortions to be conducted within the confines of their own borders.
But while you don’t hear such truths, you do hear the President’s campaign telling young girls to think with their private parts instead of their smarts.
In many ways the Obama approach to getting women to vote for him is down right insulting. In addition to making it seem as though women are helpless victims who require the government to prop them up, he is also making women out to be a gender that thinks about nothing else other than sex. Hence the new ad equating a first time decision to vote to a first time having sex.
Fortunately, most women are not quite as dumb as the President and his liberal compatriots would like to think. Oh sure, there are the dumb as nails Debbie Wasserman Schultz-like dim wits and Nancy Pelosi-like nincompoops out there in Liberal Lala land. But most women have more self-respect, integrity, and brains than those two liberal hacks. Most women would rather support themselves than have the government limit their opportunities and future by forcing them to become dependent on a behemoth government bureaucracy that is ethically and economically bankrupt. Which is why most women have begun to stop supporting Barack Obama. They see through the President’s shallow pitches to them and even more than that, they are beginning to be offended by the very shallow characterization of them that is created by the ignorant messages his campaign is sending through their attempts to win women over. And that’s a good thing because it’s nice to know that unlike Lena Dunham, most women will not have the need for condoms when they step in the voting on Election Day.
