When Obama gave his "apology" last week he stepped in it with women. His apology was out of the total cad playbook;
"It's unfortunate you believed it when I said I cared for you (over 30 times)."
Obama promised women (over 30 times) if they liked your healthcare, they'd keep it. He also promised them (over 30 times) they could keep their doctors and their health care costs would go down. These promises have turned out to be lies. Lies he knew were lies when he said them. The deeper problem is that the lies were part of Obama's seduction of women. Using lies, he seduced women into believing the government will take care of them, beautifully. In 2012, Obama put his seduction online with the one website of his that actually works, his campaign website:
(CNN) Last week, President Obama's campaign launched a fictional storybook ad called, 'The Life of Julia.' The slide show narrative follows Julia, a cartoon character, from age 3 to age 67 and explains how Obama's policies, from Head Start to Obamacare to mandated contraception coverage to Medicare reform, would provide Julia with a better life than Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan could.
Julia is not your typical all-American girl, but an obviously independent, yuppie liberal woman. She goes to public school, graduates college, and becomes a Web designer. She is able to pursue her career because, at age 27, "her health insurance is required to cover birth control and preventive care, letting Julia focus on her work rather than worry about her health."
At age 31 she 'decides to have a child,' with no mention of a father or husband. Her son Zachary heads off to a Race to the Top funded public school, while Julia goes on to start her own Web business. She retires at age 67 with Social Security and Medicare supporting her financially and spends her later years volunteering in a community garden.
Julia's happily-ever-after tale is remarkably void of reality. Nowhere in her fictional life is it mentioned that Head Start has done little, if anything, to improve elementary education, that she will likely graduate with $25,000 in student loan debt, that she has a 50% chance of being unemployed or underemployed after college, that Medicare and Social Security are headed toward insolvency, and that her share of the national debt is $50,000 and growing.
"For Republicans, Julia's story might seem like a joke too good to be true, but they should take it very seriously. Because buried within 'The Life of Julia' is the ideological vision of modern liberalism -- to create a state that takes care of its people from cradle to grave. The story of Julia is a microcosm of Obama's vision for America and emblematic of his view of the government's role in an individual's life." -William Bennett
But now Obama's lies to women have threatened his plan to have the government take care of women from cradle to grave. Threatened. But will it disrupt the plan?
Anyone that grew up in the 1970s during the classic Chiffon margarine campaign learned you got disruption when you fooled Mother Nature. Well, at first blush, it looks as if women's nature may not be so different from Mother Nature's nature. From the Pew Poll yesterday:
"President Barack Obama's approval rating is at its lowest level since he entered the White House in 2009, with a majority saying for the first time in a Quinnipiac University poll that the president is not honest and trustworthy."
"Among women voters, one of Obama's biggest support groups, only 40 percent said they approved of his performance in the White House, versus 51 percent who said they did not."
"Any Democrat with an 11-point approval deficit among women is in trouble. And any elected official with an 8-point trust deficit is in serious trouble."
Unfortunately because we are dealing with women and not Mother Nature, Obama isn't in real trouble as he's not up for re-election. Hence the true cad has been revealed. He used women for as long as he needed them dumping them as quickly as a 200 lb sack of sand when he was done. Future Democrats running for election may be in trouble -the-old-misdirected-anger wheeze. This poltical reality might explain why Bill Clinton, the president who lied about having "sex with that woman" wagged his finger (figuratively-speaking) yesterday in Obama's general direction saying 'honor your commitment'.
But the reality is both men, if they understand one thing, they understand women. Especially the women they've stepped in it with. Like they've done for decades with own their wives, they'll apply the presents to bring the women back into line. The only difference being the presents : Mrs. Clinton gets political power and Mrs. Obama gets shopping trips and vacations. Women will merely get more of what they've got; more bluster about the Republican's supposed war on women, free birth control and abortion 24/7. For women, that may be enough.
Would it have been enough for Mother Nature?
