New Ad – Obama The Bad Online Date

September 27, 2014

Americans for Shared Prosperity has created a new ad which is clearly targeted at women who are disappointed with Obama.

A young woman speaks of the great guy she met in 2008 and stood by in 2012 who has turned out to be the opposite of everything he promised.

It’s a pretty clever idea and Liberals hate it so it must be effective.

Eliana Dockterman of Time Magazine writes:

Some have slammed the spot for seemingly comparing Obama to an abusive partner. The woman says her relationship with “Barack” was on the rocks in 2008 but she “stuck with him because he promised he’d be better. He’s great at promises.” Critics say the ad’s language echoes too closely that of the recent #WhyIStayed movement in which domestic abuse victims explained why they remained with their abuser. Many listed false promises of change among the reasons for staying.

Anna Brand of MSNBC says Republicans are playing the ‘bad boyfriend’ card.

It seems the left doesn’t like it when the “War on Women” is turned towards them.

I believe this is what Glenn Reynolds refers to as punching back twice as hard.
