Skip to comments.Paul Ryan: Obama's 'Julia' website 'creepy' and 'demeaning'
Posted on 05/04/2012 6:46:35 PM PDT by Innovative
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Friday that the Obama campaign's new website - which uses a fictionalized woman named Julia to illustrate how the president's policies help female voters - is "creepy" and "demeaning."
"It suggests that this woman can't go anywhere in life without Barack Obama's government-centered society. It's kind of demeaning to her," Ryan said during a constituent meeting in Wisconsin, the National Review reports. "She must have him and his big government to depend on to go anywhere in life. It doesn't say much about his faith in Julia."
Dubbed "The Life of Julia," the website follows a hypothetical character from age 3 to 67 and provides examples of when she might benefit from policies backed by the president - while suggesting that presumptive Republican candidate Mitt Romney would support policies that might have the opposite effect.

that’s because the government “levels the playing field” for all women. According to the helpless twits, things are “unfair” and everyone “has it in for them” and will never give them a “fair shake” because of the patriarchal nature of western civilization.
Oh, if she’d keep her panties up, she might be taken more seriously, but that is way too much to ask. Because as you have been informed by the geniuses in Hollywood, people have a right to an exciting sex life, whether they are married or not.
Eat your heart out, Sandra Fluke. Julia gets free birth control pills
Well, I didn’t create the title — but it’s actually web pages on Obama’s website. Check it out, you can go and find out how the government is handing out things to women at all ages — it’s full of lies.
Here is the link to the article from National Review with an excerpt:
“Every one of those slides, I could go after their manipulation of statistics, and disentangle and unpack each of those talking points,” said Ryan. “It’s just the narrative that they’re trying to tell, that for this woman to succeed, she has to have a really big government.”
“It really shows the philosophical premise they operate from, which is - I think Romney coined it well - it’s a ‘government-centered society.’ You have to have government at every stage of your life to be there for you, otherwise, you’re going to fail. It’s promoting a cradle-to-grave welfare society,” said Ryan.
No husband. One child at 31. Has her own business but still needs to have Medicare and Social Security for retirement. Yes that sounds like Zero’s Marxist utopia.
Michelle Malking Tweet:
“The Life of #julia: Entitlement, dependency, wealth redistribution. #thelifeofbrianterry: Public service, self-sufficiency, sacrifice.”
"I'll pay for your pills when you pay for my ammo"
the “I’m NOT Julia!” meme needs to go viral.
All in all it seems like it’s another piece of Obamasterful harakiri. It points up the ridiculous endpoint of the gummit society.
Because Obama done taxed all her profits away!!!
Goebbels would be proud.
Not sure where they would go with that--they don't want to offend their feminist base by having a sympathetic male character. They could do one about a male who games the system (government worker in a union, or someone with a fake disability, or a member of a protected class) but they don't want the general public to know more about that than they already do.
Maybe the RNC could use the Winston name to do something to counter the Julia one, but they probably aren't clever enough to do so.
The irony is that there are already millions of real-life Julias out there soaking up the national wealth.
Obama did not invent them, every president of both parties enabled them, or thought it not important enough to oppose profligate congresses. Obama just made sure that there are several times the number that existed prior to his election.
Wouldn't it be useful to determine how many Julias and Julios already exist? And I'm sure they all vote.
I'd like to see them all over the place because I think it would make people who aren't paying attention curious and force them to ask which would keep the conversation going.
The Liberal Messiah believes all single women think of the federal government as their husband and so He expects those women to vote for their provider. I hope single women see through His paternalistic, condescending, sexist attitude.
I am sure I am way behind the curve, but this is so ripe for mocking.
Like the 3 year old slide:
Under Obama Julia was born with $50,000 in debt and must start paying a fine if she doesn’t buy health insurance just for the privilege of breathing......
At 67: Under Obama Julia was diagnosed with cancer. Obama’s plans to make our health care like Europe’s means lower survival rates, but Julia is happy to help “bend the curve” and not waste precious resources trying to live. Since she aborted her children for free in her 20’s there is no one to visit her in the the Obama funded old person warehouse....
Unbelievably demeaning. We’ve lost our understanding of freedom and responsibility.
How sad that this horrible stuff even has the potential to generate votes.
Under the 0bama/Emmanuel complete lives system, ‘Julia’ will be dead the day after her 40th birthday.
Julia is Winstons lover and the only other person who Winston can be sure hates the Party and wishes to rebel against it as he does. Whereas Winston is restless, fatalistic, and concerned about large-scale social issues, Julia is sensual, pragmatic, and generally content to live in the moment and make the best of her life. Winston longs to join the Brotherhood and read Emmanuel Goldsteins abstract manifesto; Julia is more concerned with enjoying sex and making practical plans to avoid getting caught by the Party. Winston essentially sees their affair as temporary; his fatalistic attitude makes him unable to imagine his relationship with Julia lasting very long. Julia, on the other hand, is well adapted to her chosen forms of small-scale rebellion. She claims to have had affairs with various Party members, and has no intention of terminating her pleasure seeking, or of being caught (her involvement with Winston is what leads to her capture). Julia is a striking contrast to Winston: apart from their mutual sexual desire and hatred of the Party, most of their traits are dissimilar, if not contradictory.”
Hussein's old girlfriend?
As a woman, I’m offended by the notion that a woman’s place is living out her life “UNDER” anyone.
Under Obama? Under Romney?
Here’s the real Julia”
Thanks for the info.
Naming her “Julia” sounds like it could have been an “inside joke” within the PR firm—probably slipped by their editors.
The “joke” would be that the PR firm itself prostitutes itself to any client it can get—even a political campaign that consists of little more than a tangle of lies.
I've always suspected that Obama wanted to be President-for-Life like his heroes Hugo Chavez and Robert Mugabe, but this is the first time he has let the mask slip. Of course the chances of him living to 110 or so (as the slide show assumes) are not likely.
Or, maybe the daughter of Karl Marx? Her middle name was "Julia".
Jenny Julia Eleanor "Tussy" Marx was an influential Communist organizer in the 19th Century (until she commited suicide at age 43).
Why not agrees to out put down to clear the space for the young folks.
the website follows a hypothetical character from age 3 to 67
Missing those pesky endpoints. Will "Julia" survive a failed abortion? "Julia and the 0-Care Death Panel".
Maybe Julia is named for Julia, the promiscuous daughter of the emperor Augustus.
Or Winston Smith's mistress in 1984.
Let me be first to say:
“Emmanuel Goldstein’s fault”.
But she doesn't have to marry a man and have kids to be "fulfilled" ..... she can lead a life of government-supported fun, and have fun clothes (from Ross's Dress for Less), and travel, and friends (girls of course), and kittens, and no yard to mow, and free minutes on her Obamaphone having kicky, fun conversations with her friends (girls, of course), and help with the rent, and Obama gasoline for her fun little Obama car .... all on the government nickel, helped out of course by whatever she can make answering phones for the next 50 years. (It'll be 50, dear -- sorry, that's the new retirement math. Sorry, again.)
"Julia" in the movie of the same name. Jane Fonda, Vanessa "Communist" Redgrave. Lillian Communist Hellman's memoir of her girlfriend who died working for the Reds as a spy. How brave, noble, selfless, pretty, lesbihot, ..... and all.
Don't forget the original postcolonial dictator, Communist-supported Osagyefo (bossman) Kwame Nkrumah. I'm happy to report that he died in a people's revolution, his KGB and East German Stasi thugs alongside him -- good riddance.
Then there were Idi Amin Dada, racial hero for humiliating white people in public "spectacles", fond of killing his "enemies" ..... and Jomo Kenyatta of Mau-Mau fame.
And don't forget Raila Odinga, Bammy's got a really special soft spot for Raila, My Brother. He may even have helped Raila with homely chores, like washing the blood of innocent people off his shoes.
Even Mary Jo Kopechnie, had she lived, would have enjoyed the comfort of big government in her old age.
Oh, don't be such a cynic.
Her 67th, at least.
