If you have somehow been able to avoid this whole “Julia” topic, allow me to spoil your ignorance.
Just this past week, President Obama rolled out an online campaign called “Julia“, which gave a cartoon portrayal of a Liberal’s vision for life for one imaginary woman.
The website and slide show are available HERE. You may want to drink something first. Personally, I felt a little ill seeing how this administration wanted women to live their life, being tethered to the Federal Government their entire existences.
There have been quite a few take-downs of this since it hit, with Twitter almost catching fire from the sarcastic, but very funny, critiques of such a life. One of my favorites thus far:
re #Julia. The Left believes in cradle to the grave assistance, it's just sometimes really tricky making it to the cradle.

Heritage Foundation put out a complete mock version which has been received well. Although in my opinion, it’s not extremely entertaining.
Heritage’s version is HERE.
Visit Iowahawk’s page, and check out his wonderfully acerbic take on this.
You’ll get the gist of the other takes, and you’ll definitely laugh more with Iowahawk’s satire than with the other two, combined.
On second thought, you might laugh AT President Obama’s original version, but really …it’s just kinda sad.
Brilliant and Thank You. I choked on my coffee when I read Dennis Miller.
It IS sad, and what’s even sadder are the nearly 50% of American Kool-Aid drinkers who actually believe this is the way things should be.
Winning minds and hearts, Buckeye. One person at a time.
Gotta believe there are still more people in our country who want to support THEMSELVES, rather than have Big Daddy send them their WIC vouchers every week (along with a hundred other federal subsidies).
Absolutely, I’m with you and I do have confidence that is the case. The task, as I said the other day, will be to prevent the Dems from stealing this election. Like him or not (and I think many folks are warming up to the idea of voting for him now that his nomination appears inevtiable), Romney seems to have a pretty buttoned-down campaign organization. I hope planning includes troops on the ground to document shenanigans at “hot spot” polling places (e.g., cemeteries in Chicagoland–90% of dead voters vote Democrat–or the Philadelphia precinct patrolled by armed members of the New Black Panther party in 2008).
Romney’s are GREAT. He is statistically tied in 12 battleground states that Obama won last time and Romney is poised better than McCain. Also, There is something to hold Obama to this time besides ethereal promises.
As far as “warming up,” I really don’t see that as an issue. The Republican base may be a little tepid about Romney, the person, but they are white hot about Romney, Obama’s opposition.
No question about that last part, JW. What we need is a nice chunk of those “independents” in the squishy middle to see the light.
We will get them when the gas prices go up and the economy keeps going down. Eventually people will see that when Obama spins a “declining unemployment rate” what he fails to mention is that the ratio of people quitting the job search to people who are getting jobs is 2 or 3:1. Anyone remember “Carter’s Malaise”?
Just wrote about that last part on Saturday, John. Obama is setting all KINDS of records right now.
…..just not GOOD ones.
Just what you said is one of the things I am excited about. You write about it. I write about it. Buckeye writes about it. He can’t hide like he did in 08.
Where’s the “Like” button?
Should be at the bottom of the article. It has a star next to it….
If you click on the article title itself, you will get the article in your window, and not the entire blog.
At the bottom, you should see the “Like” button.
Figures there would have to be one somewhere. Facebook makes you lazy. OK, it can make ME lazy.
And, just to be clear, I “Like” both the original post AND the comments.
Just glad to have ya in the mix, Buckeye…..
I hope I’m not the only one who finds “Julia” a bit of a hottie……
Man, that truly scares me.
The Dennis Miller quote was great!
Twitter had a BUNCH of funny ones, DD, but Miller just nails it!
