“Half of what I say is meaningless, but I say it just to reach you, Julia.” The Beatles
That song was written about a combination of John Lennon’s mother and his budding relationship with Yoko Ono. This week, with the advent of a mythical “Julia,” the Obama campaign has given that line new meaning. So much of what the campaign says is meaningless, but it is said just to fool voters. And sadly, this sort of propaganda works on an alarming number of Americans. (Sandra Fluke, anyone?)
When not appealing to people based on race, sexual orientation or through class warfare, Democrats return to their default divisive issues – genitals. Fake ones in this case, but genitals nonetheless.
The Obama campaign created a woman named “Julia,” who can be described only as an eye-less albino woman who, as she ages, wears only a skirt between the ages of 25 and 67, then goes back to pants, and seems to think her right side is her “good side” since it’s the only one she ever shows.
In addition to that, and a seeming love of pastels, Julia is a parasite on society and the antithesis of what modern feminists are supposed to be.
As a child, Julia is shuttled off to a Head Start program at age 3 that even the government says is a waste of money and makes no difference in the future academic success of children. The site touts President Obama’s commitment to Head Start, which makes sense because it’s a big government failure.
Next we see Julia at age 17, ready to take the SAT and apply to college. It’s not because she’s smart or because of her hard work, it’s because President Obama Race to the Top program dumped more cash into the coffers of teachers unions.
There’s nothing about any work put in by Julia to accomplish what she has, just information on how Mitt Romney wants to cut funding to public schools to give tax breaks to millionaires – Democrats’ default position on everything.
There’s also no mention of how the United States spends more money on education than any other country, yet our test scores for important core curricula keep falling. Or the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program so poor students in the nation’s capitol can escape some of the most expensive and least-performing schools in the country. That’s probably because President Obama has tried to end the program every year he’s been in the White House as a nod to his union patrons – even as he sends his children to one of the most exclusive private schools in the country.
