And it's not local sovereignty or financial discipline that results in better schools for Julia's new son, "Zachary." Nope. It's Obama's "investments" in education and "programs like Race to the Top." (Is there nothing Race to the Top can't do?)
"Under President Obama," the campaign web feature then crows, "Julia starts her own web business. She qualifies for a Small Business Administration loan, giving her the money she needs to invest in her business. President Obama's tax cuts for small businesses like Julia's help her to get started. She's able to hire employees, creating new jobs in her town and helping to grow the local economy."
In the real world, according to Dun and Bradstreet, the SBA supported fewer than 62,000 small business loans: a measly 0.2 percent of the nation's 27.5 million small businesses. The vast majority of entrepreneurs get their start without the SBA's "help" and want only one thing: for Obama and his wealth-confiscators to leave them the heck alone.
As soon as Obama publicized "The Life of Julia" on the web, conservative activists swarmed Twitter to provide real-world counter-narratives. "I'm no Julia," one wrote. "As a small-business owner I'm being taxed to death. I need the (government) to get out of my way and let me make money." Another young conservative female tweeted: "As a woman business owner I'm offended that POTUS thinks I need him to survive and thrive." Conservative writer Kemberlee Kaye added: "What the Julia example really shows is the Democrat ideal. Complete and total reliance on the government."
My story? I've founded three web ventures over the past eight years without a penny of taxpayer money or government venture socialism. We free-market-centered small-business women can "grow the local economy" and raise our children and improve our schools just fine without the meddling, patriarchal hand of President Obama taking credit for our every last success.
After hyperventilating for months about the Republican "war on women," Democratic new-media gurus inadvertently have exposed the real Barack Obama: a chauvinistic control freak who would tether every last woman and child to his ever-expanding, budget-busting Nanny State.
Mamas, for the sake of your family's freedom and our republic's survival, don't let your babies grow up to be "Julia."
