Red Eye Guests Discuss “Hosurance” Ad Campaign
For those of you a little behind the curve , a Colorado (where else ) progressive group placed ads for Obamacare throughout the state using a theme designed to convince the twenty-something crowd to sign up and get free birth control . The ads are tacky to say the least and there is something very unseemly about advocating promiscuity in order to sell a government program .
Watch the video and decide for yourself , Greg , Stacey and the rest of the Red Eye cast have fun with ridiculing the ridiculous . Sandra Fluke must be beaming with joy . No word on whether she was the brains behind the ads but they certainly have a Flukish “scent” about them .
National Dance for Obama GOTV effort draws only 12 dancers in NYC
” Today was National Dance for Obama Day, in which flash mobs were organized as part of a get out the vote effort in numerous cities.
The weekend before Election Day, we’re turning up the heat and encouraging people to get out and vote with flash mobs across the country. “
Obama’s minions continue to give it their all . As that dozen or so dancers hoofed it for ‘ The One ” , America’s favorite Fluke … Sandra that is , was doing what she could to single-handedly save the lady parts of America and the voting parts attached to them .
We have to admit that 40 attendees is a four hundred percent increase over Ms Fluke’s appearance last month in Nevada .
Then we have the massive ” Million
Puppet Muppet March ” which came up somewhat short of their stated goal in their noble effort to save Big Bird from the hatchet .
Even the star-power of Stevie Wonder failed to pack the house for the hapless Barack .
And last but certainly not least we have the man himself entertaining a crowd of 2-3000 when 4 Looong years ago he was pontificating on high before throngs that numbered in the 50-80,000 strong range .
Meanwhile …. Down the Road Apiece … Mitt and Ann spoke to a few admirers of their own …
… Draws Crowd Of 10 People
” Sandra Fluke spoke Saturday in front of about 10 people at the Sak ‘N Save in north Reno. Her speech was part of an attempt by Democrats to get Nevadans to the polls for early voting. “
“Horror show: Wednesday night at the DNC”
“Wednesday was a wonderful political day for Republicans. Let’s recap. The day started off with the flap over platform language. That in
turn led to the spectacle of Democratic delegates booing the vote to put back Jerusalem and God back into the platform. It was even in the eyes of the most Obama-
sympathetic media a horrid disruption, signaling both incompetence and hostility to things that many if not most Americans hold dear. The news got worse as Politico reported that the
president had signed off on the platform sans God and Jerusalem. The Romney camp could hardly believe the avalanche of atrocious
press . (Democratic National Committee chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s
insistence that there had been no controversy brought CNN’s Anderson Cooper to declare
she was operating in an “alternate universe.”)
It was a remarkable, actual newsmaking episode, something we rarely get at conventions. Moreover, it was the worst blunder
in a scripted TV event in recent memory. “
” Democrats walking into “war on women” trap of their own making “
” Do Democrats still plan to feature a “war on women” theme at their convention? If they do, I
argue in my column today for The Fiscal Times , they may well find themselves hoist with their own petard, after a week of watching
accomplished Republican women speaking from the dais in Tampa. Not only does the emphasis
entirely miss the issues about which voters care most in this electoral cycle, the entire argument
diminishes women to, well, to exactly what Code Pink reduced them in protests at the GOP
The message from the Obama campaign and Democrats in general seems to be that women are somehow incapable of finding
birth control on their own unless some paternal entity dispenses it to them, despite all evidence to the contrary. They’re so incapable of this task that employers and schools have to hand it for them, no matter how much income they
derive nor how much tuition they manage to pay otherwise. This has already backfired during Team Obama’s “Life of Julia” campaign, which offered a creepy, solitary vision of a woman’s life approaching that of the song “Eleanor Rigby.” Former CNN news anchor Campbell Brown wrote in The New York Times that “Julia” was “a silly and embarrassing caricature based on the assumption that women look to government at every meaningful phase of
their lives for help.” “
“Obama’s Iftar Dinner”
” Obama’s politically correct spin on Islam grows more and more buffoonish. At the very moment he accuses Christians of waging a “war
on women,” he casts Islam as a benevolent religion to which the Sandra Flukes could take refuge.
He used his remarks at this year’s Iftar dinner to praise Islam as a female-friendly religion. “Indeed, you know that the Koran teaches, ‘Be it man or woman, each of you is equal to the other,’” he said. For Obama, it is the Bible, not the Koran, that reeks of dangerous patriarchy. Obama has mocked the Book of Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and St. Paul’s letters, but he would never dare question a passage in the Koran, which he regards as a holy and blameless book in no need of politically correct revision.”
Reviving the War on Women?
” Sandra Fluke, the free- contraception activist whose claim to fame was getting insulted by Rush Limbaugh, is hitting the campaign trail with President
Obama in Colorado today. But she
started the day off with an anti-Romney column in the Huffington Post (via Daily Caller ):
The morning of noted contraception activist Sandra
Fluke’s campaign appearance
with President Barack Obama
in Denver, the newly minted
lawyer explained she is “standing with Obama” in an effort to protect women’s health care. “
We haven’t really dealt with #Julia yet but this list of Top Ten tweets regarding the Obama campaign’s latest attempt to fill the government gravy train with the women’s vote looks to have backfired much like the Ann Romney , Seamus the Dog and Sandra Fluke attempts have . Why not join the party . Surely we want to celebrate the left’s condescension to women in recognizing that without government women wouldn’t be able to survive and thrive . Would someone please tell me how this culture of dependency so ingrained in the left jibes with the goals of the feminists of the women’s liberation movement who so fervently support the Left ? The ultimate irony , no ?
Has “A woman needs an man like a fish needs a bicycle ” become ” A woman needs government like a fish needs water ” ? WTF ?
