Women, IF IT WERE UP TO A ROMNEY PRESIDENCY, You Couldn’t Afford To Get Pregnant, But You Should!

If the latest Crossroad ad is a rebutal to the Obama camp’s The Life Of Julia, NEWS FLASH!!! MAJOR FAIL! This ad doesn’t not speak to the WOMEN MAJORITY

Mitt Romney’s policies would prevent you from ACCESS to abortions, contraception, fair pay, student loans, defunding Planned Parenthood, and affordable healthcare. HE’S ON THE WRONG SIDE OF ALL THE ISSUES that are IMPORTANT to women. This ad appeals to the fears of OLDER WHITE WOMEN voters, not those same women Sarah Palin yodeled on and on about as HOCKEY MOMS, only now Crossroads is changing the game and the color of the ball. IT’S a DECEPTIVE ad….SURPRISE!

Rising health care, inability to retire, kids coming back home, is not something my young adult daughters are looking at as the pressing issue. They are planning their future, which includes how many children they’re going to have (CONTRACEPTION), a well-paying JOB. How can you work if you’re sick and can’t afford healthcare, get pregnant and can’t affford the baby, because you didn’t have ACCESS to contraceptives?  Can’t go to an abortion clinic, because GOP legistlation is attempting to ROLLBACK Roe v Wade, and the extreme rightwingnuts are CONTINUING VIOLENT attack and bombing  abortion clinics.  Anti-abortion extremists TERRORIZE doctors in Georgia.

This isn’t an ad addressed to mom, it’s an ad addressed to any older American parent on the verge of retirement. The ad just stuck on the basketball court, and a mom’s face.

Here’s my ad rebuttal for this foolishness

I have two daughters, both college-educated and married now. Let’s set the stage: Both had worries about paying their student loans when Republicans are now doubling the interest rate because they want to gut preventative care. My daughters would fret over being without health insurance because their ability to remain on my or their dad’s insurance has expired. And now both of my daughters are trying to figure out how to live on minimum wage and no time off, because they need something to pay for their trip to the gynecologist for their yearly exams, since REPUBLICANS defunded Planned Parenthood.

Cutting taxes, and debt and creating jobs, that’s what we need? Seriously, folks.

    Hope: The Sequel

    For Obama & Co., this time around it’s all about fear.

    But if the Obama 2012 strategy in this regard is all about the amplification of 2008, in terms of message it will represent a striking deviation. Though the Obamans certainly hit John McCain hard four years ago—running more negative ads than any campaign in history—what they intend to do to Romney is more savage. They will pummel him for being a vulture-vampire capitalist at Bain Capital. They will pound him for being a miserable failure as the governor of Massachusetts. They will mash him for being a water-carrier for Paul Ryan’s Social Darwinist fiscal program. They will maul him for being a combination of Jerry Falwell, Joe Arpaio, and John Galt on a range of issues that strike deep chords with the Obama coalition. “We’re gonna say, ‘Let’s be clear what he would do as president,’ ” Plouffe explains. “Potentially abortion will be criminalized. Women will be denied contraceptive services. He’s far right on immigration. He supports efforts to amend the Constitution to ban gay marriage.

    The Obama effort at disqualifying Romney will go beyond painting him as excessively conservative, however. It will aim to cast him as an avatar of revanchism. “He’s the fifties, he is retro, he is backward, and we are forward—that’s the basic construct,” says a top Obama strategist. “If you’re a woman, you’re Hispanic, you’re young, or you’ve gotten left out, you look at Romney and say, ‘This fucking guy is gonna take us back to the way it always was, and guess what? I’ve never been part of that.’
