If you needed further proof about just how much the President has cheapened the Presidency, consider his latest ad, which not only compares voting for him for the first time to losing virginity, but also ridicules those who might not want to lose their virginity to just any politician. This is the peer group peer pressure people across the political aisle have complained about in high schools for years.
But our President is adopting it as a last minute campaign strategy. If you need any further proof we live in a fallen world destined for hell fire, consider the number of people who have no problem with the President of the United States, via a campaign ad, ridiculing virgins and comparing sex to voting.
This is the man who once said children were a punishment. At least we know he's cool with abortion.
The reason Barack Obama is running this ad is because he is done trying to get independent voters. He's given up. Despite campaign rhetoric about fighting for evangelicals, he's given up there. He's given up on Catholic voters. He's given up on the South. He's given up on men who have daughters. He's given up on moms. He's given up on everyone expect his core base of singles, gays, and minorities, including college kids he is desperate to get back to the polls.
I don't see this ad helping him among remaining swing voters, including women, in Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Many of them still want a President who upholds the honor and dignity of the office without the pretension of trying to be the cool kid. On the bright side, he could have done nothing to better solidify those leaning toward Romney in the last two weeks of the campaign.
About the only honest bit of innuendo in the ad is that the people who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 have been screwed — economically. The problem for Barack Obama is that many of those people believe their vote for him was a one night stand that they'd prefer to forget. Additionally, we know now that Barack Obama, like that one night stand, probably won't call you back. Just ask the American Consulate in Benghazi.
