Cradle-to-Grave Obamaism Slideshow: “The Life of Julia”
The regime campaign effort, the reelection effort has this slideshow. They’ve put up a website with a slideshow that covers an imaginary American named “Julia” from age three up until age 67. All the benefits, all the wonderful things that will happen to Julia in her life if Obama is reelected! What it is (whether it’s intended or not) is a perfect illustration of liberal cradle-to-grave care for every citizen with the government making every decision, making everything possible, and leaving nothing to chance. And, of course, a life of utopian paradise.
Now, we can’t show you the actual slideshow (on radio), the artist renderings for each panel as Julia goes from age three to 67. But I can share with you the text. For example: “Take a look at how President Obama’s policies help one woman over her lifetime — and how Mitt Romney would change her story.” That’s the headline. Age three. “Under President Obama: Julia is enrolled in a Head Start program to help get her ready for school. Because of steps President Obama has taken to improve programs like this one, Julia joins thousands of students across the country who will start kindergarten ready to learn and succeed.
“Under Mitt Romney: The Romney/Ryan budget could cut programs like Head Start by 20%, meaning the program would offer 200,000 fewer slots per year.” Now, there are responses to this. Julie at age three is bummed. Her share of the national debt just went up $16,345 under Obama! Age 17. “Under President Obama: Julia takes the SAT and is on track to start her college applications. Her high school is part of the Race to the Top program, implemented by President Obama. Their new college- and career-ready standards mean Julia can take the classes she needs to do well.
