Have you seen Obama’s Life of Julia ad? If not, click on the image and watch it.
You have to be an idiot I think to find it credible but, given Obama’s history, perhaps he’s just playing to his base.
Ben Shapiro picks it apart a bit for those who are… well… slow:
When Julia is 3 years old – presumably in the year 2015 – Julia is enrolled in Head Start thanks to “steps President Obama has taken.” When she’s 17, in the year 2029, her high school is part of the Race to the Top program, “implemented by President Obama.” When she’s 18, she and her family qualify for “President Obama’s American Opportunity Tax Credit.” When she’s 25, in the year 2037, she’s able to pay off her federal student loans “since President Obama capped income-based federal student loan payments.” When she’s 42 – this is the year 2044, and President Obama is at this point 83 years old, and well into his ninth term – she gets a small business loan thanks to “President Obama’s tax cuts for small businesses.” The slideshow concludes “President Obama is standing up for women throughout their lives.”
And apparently, for their entire lives.
Now, to be fair, it’s possible that Obama’s campaign is just assuming that none of his policies will ever be changed. Which is silly. Or, more likely, they just overlooked this small problem.
In any case, it’s just another footnote to one of the worst campaign initiatives in recent memory.
It’s only the worst campaign initiative in recent memory if it fails to convince.
But Obama has already shown an ability to fool the gullible and easily led.
What’s to say these same people won’t be fooled again?
If history is any gauge…
