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.
