The best campaign counter-attack video I HAVE EVER SEEN. Obama 2012
”So we’re going to call their BS when we see it and we need your help to call them on it too and set the record straight. So share this, tweet it, facebook it, I keep hearing about tumblr and whatever that is…please use that too. Thank you.”
-Stephanie Cutter / Deputy Campaign Manager at Obama for America.
And a Tumblr shout-out.
Using that Tumblr thing.
Obama is the coolest politician ever! I just wish he was ruling the UK! Fuq da queen
Why can’t we make Obama the Queen of Amurrica?
I really like how she keeps saying “In America!” instead of “in the U.S.”
It makes me both feel proud and somewhat arrogant.
Also, I am constantly reminded of Bandit Keith.
Also: you go, Obama Administration! Four for you, Obama Administration!
and none for Mitt Romney.
*salutes* yes ma’am, signal boosting as ordered.
because i really, really hate when people get away with straight-up lying in campaign ads.
Badvertising of the Day: Right-wing, anti-science think tank the Heartland Institute has unveiled a new billboard campaign in its hometown of Chicago that compares those who believe in global warming to the Unabomber, Charles Manson, and Osama bin Laden.
From the group’s website:
What these murderers and madmen have said differs very little from what spokespersons for the United Nations, journalists for the “mainstream” media, and liberal politicians say about global warming.
The people who still believe in man-made global warming are mostly on the radical fringe of society. This is why the most prominent advocates of global warming aren’t scientists. They are murderers, tyrants, and madmen.
Thankfully, spot-on analysis by The Daily Beast‘s Andrew Sullivan wins the day:
In some ways, this is an almost perfect illustration of what has happened to the “right.” A refusal to acknowledge scientific reality; and a brutalist style of public propaganda that focuses entirely on guilt by the most extreme association.
the far right has just gotten progressively more and more scary/irrational. it is incredibly frustrating to me that people can take the scientific facts and completely and totally disregard them
I AM A RESPONSIBLE GIRL
My kisses are worth more than a party or a movie.
My body is the temple of God - not a plaything.
The “first” NO may be difficult - after that it’s easy.
Virginity is still a virtue; lust is still a capital sin.
The way I dress, act and speak may be a temptation to my boyfriend. I will observe modesty for his and my own protection.
My parents have done so much for me I wish alsways to be a credit to them.
My boyfriend will be a husband and father some day. He must be a hero in the eyes of his wife and children. I will do nothing to prevent that on my visits with him.
I want to be a wife and mother. I will reserve my purity and affection for my husband and children.
If through my weakness, I should get pregnant, I will not take “the easy way out” by killing my unborn child.
I AM A RESPONSIBLE BOY
The parents of my girlfriend place their trust in me. I will not violate it.
I will respect my girlfriend as I expect other men to respect my sister.
I will respect womanhood because my mother is a woman; I will ask my girlfriend to do nothing that I would be ashamed of if my mother found out.
My girlfriend has given me the honor and pleasure of her company. It is wrong for me to expect more in payment for this visit with her.
My girlfriend will be a wife and mother some day. She must be an example to her children and the pride of her husband. I will help her to be as pure and decent as I want my wife to be.
Manhood means strength of character as well as body. Lack of self-control is a sign of weakness. I want my girlfriend to know I am manly.
God is everywhere, sees everything, knows everything. Darkness may hide from people, but I cannot hide me from God.
If through my lack of self-control, I should get a girl pregnant, I will not put pressure on her to kill our unborn child.
Ooo Ooo can I play?
I am a responsible woman
I lost my virginity when I was a teenager.
Knowing I was not ready to have a kid, I used contraception.
I have never been pregnant, unintentionally, or otherwise.
I have used condoms, hormonal birth control, and the morning after pill to prevent pregnancy, because I know that I am not prepared emotionally or financially for a child.
I know that sex is a shared experience between to people, to show love, or to have fun, or just because they’re bored.
Sex is not payment, or sinful, or a gift, or just the way we reproduce.
My husband wasn’t the first person I had sex with, nor I his, but we both know that a person’s worth, or dedication to a partner, isn’t based on their previous sexual experience.
I understand that some people find themselves pregnant when they know it’s not good for them, and I trust people to make the right decisions for themselves. It is not my place, or anyone else’s to decide for them.
Oh, let’s do it.
I am a responsible man.
My wife places her trust in me, I will not violate it. But her parents are not and never will be the focus of our relationship.
I will respect all women the same way- a waitress deserves the same courtesy that I would give my wife, my girlfriend, or my sister.
I will respect womanhood because women are people. But, again, my mother is not and never will be the focus of our relationship. My wife and I will make choices, together, whether they would be approved of by our parents or not.
My wife has given me her love and her trust. I will return that by not acting as if sex were re-payment for spending time with her.
My wife may be a mother some day. It’ll be our choice. She wasn’t a virgin when we met. Neither was I. It doesn’t make me love her any less, and it doesn’t make her any less fit to raise children.
Manhood means a lot of things. Anyone who thinks that showing any sign of weakness is “unmanly” is someone who has just demonstrated that I don’t give a shit about their opinion.
I will make the choices I have to make, and I will make those choices with my wife. Other people will make their own choices, and I will respect them for it.
