This afternoon, the Obama campaign released its latest ad from a celebrity. This one was from Lena Dunham, 26-year-old creator of HBO’s raunchy series Girls. It’s an astoundingly tasteless ad comparing voting for the first time to losing your virginity. Really. And Dunham recommends that if you’re going to have sex – er, vote – for the first time, you should really do it with President Barack Obama.
Comments: I heard about the ad on Mark Levin this evening. It's disgusting and demeaning, a new low in campaign ads. Ick!
This comes on the heels of that hokey "vote as if your female body parts depend on it" garbage? WHO is it that has a war with women? I'd say it is the Obama administration..evidently all they see are women as sex objects..they are so focused on it..birth control, free condoms, abortions. The White House is being run by people with 16 year old mentalities. I hope women wise up. I hope his daughters see the ad at school on a friend's cell phone.
Is this the person of character you want leading our nation?
While there are those who will think its clever and hip, most of us will find this pathetic and disgusting!!
They are desperate and willing to do ANYTHING to keep that sorry rear in power. The more this degrading ad gets exposed to the older generation, the more they will try to do the decent thing and get rid of this tyrant!
Re: "A guy who cares about whether you get health insurance, and specifically whether you get birth control. The consequences are huge."
Explains why HHS' Sebelius mandates abortifacients and condoms. Once BO secures reelection, add free penicillin and no cost abortions without co-pays or parental consent. Boys will be men and girls will be ho's in BO's sexual paradise.
The reason you haven't heard anything from NOW or any other feminist organization is clear. As long as the politician is "their politician" he can do anything and get away with it including rape (as we all know).
Found all I needed to know in the first two sentences:
"Dunham was born in New York City. Her father, Carroll Dunham, is a painter of "overtly sexualised pop art", and her mother, Laurie Simmons, is a photographer and designer who creates "disquieting domestic tableaux" with dolls.
I watched her show because I'd heard the hype that it was good. Not! It was about twenty something women in NY who were extremely unappealing in every way. Essentially, it was an opportunity for Lena Dunham to get naked as much as possible, (once was more than enough...yikes!).
This is one of those shows that people claim to like because it's supposedly deep in a funny way. Not deep, not funny, not good. I watched one episode and it made me sad. That was a half hour I'd never get back.
Nice tattoo! She has Sandra Fluke disease. Both of them shouldn't be worrying about the government giving them free birth control pills. They should be demanding the government give them free aphrodisiacs so that they can sprinkle it on men. It's their only hope.
Never heard of Lesa Dunbar, and am wondering exactly why I'm supposed to give a damn what she thinks about ANYTHING. BTW, this really seems somewhat insulting to any woman with a functioning brain and intellect and sense of grounding, doesn't it?
Prediction.......MSM will defend this ad as it emphasizes the modern liberated female unencumbered by ethics and morals and allowed to fully explore and appreciate their freedoms........unlike Romney /s
No health insurance? Really? These young women (or should I, so I can be really 'hip', use Eva Langoria's ''T'' word instead?)aren't aware that you can get health insurance anytime 1. if you'd try standing upright and get a job, 2. if you purchase your own coverage, although that means you might have to forego buying the latest iPad, iPhone, mani-pedi, blue/purple hairdo, ugly tattoo, or 6'' heel 'chase-me-boink-me' sequined platform stilettos.
Meanwhile actual young women are much more worried about their first jobs than their first time. There is nothing sexy about living on instant noodles, part time jobs flipping burgers, and wondering when your life is going to start.

Lowest. Common. Denominator.
How could anyone possibly view this fraud as a leader? A Commander-in-Chief of OUR ARMED FORCES? Or even as a decent ''nice guy'' human being.
He is mean, spiteful, and condescending.
Saw this ad on Hannity last night.... it's beyond despicable. It's just plain stupid. HBO has been gone from my satellite lineup for years. Some character, in every good series they had, somehow went gay ... ugly gay, at that. Mean, hateful, spiteful sex of all kinds, every episode, every series.
Of course Team Zero would dredge up a campaign ad like this. It's what they are - in-your-face ugly, spiteful, and just plain stupid.
How "I'm Barack Obama and I approved this ad" cannot think of his two daughters when he releases trash like this repulses me.The only "first time" for me was this ad is the first time in my adult like I'm embarrassed for my country.
Just what you would expect from this ghetto trash - he is one of the creepiest politicians I've ever seen. Have read more than one article saying that of course he's a great father - you think? Parents lead by example, and a good example is certainly not one who lies, uses filthy language and approves ads such as this. Just my opinion of course.
This ad implies that the experience of voting for Obama is akin to losing your virginity to him. Between this ad, the "vote as if your lady parts depend on it" ad, the Sandra Fluke kerfuffle, the manufactured "war on women," and lies about what Planned Parenthood actually does (and no, it doesn't provide mammograms...ever), it's apparent that democrats view women as nothing more than a collection of reproductive organs. It's insulting and demeaning (and come on, this ad is really embarrassing). Hey democrats, guess what? The majority of women have brains, and we use them. We are greater than the sum of our body parts. We know that Obama's economic and foreign policies are a threat to this country, our Constitutional freedoms, and the economic security of our families. We also know that it doesn't have to be this way, and we will vote accordingly....using our brains, not our vaginas.
#41, agree. My 20-something daughter and her friends are only concerned about their futures. (Had to ask her who this "creator" is) The only girls who will find this ad funny are, a. too young to vote anyway, and b. in college and may or may not vote depending on the previous night's activities.
The real tragedy, is that the press is still covering. We ALLL MUST make a stand! Call you cable/dish/TV programming provider. Demand that the ofer a package the does not include ABC, CNN, CBS, NBC and whatever else you choose not to want in your home. They of course won't have sucha a package, but if we were to ALL cancel unless they make one, things could change! WE MUST FIGHT!
That a President of the United States and a father of an 11 year old girl and a 14 year old girl would put out an ad like this stuns me and depresses me. Is this what we've come to? This ad is a metaphor: all the toxins swallowed by the left in the 60's and 70's are vomited up in this ad.
The internal polls for Obama's base must be really appauling if this pathetic ad has been put out. Smells of desparation. Another one of those bad ideas that made it out of the 2 a.m. pizza sessions at the White House.
This Obama Administration has to be the most low life crew that ever set foot in the White House. Do they really think that women want an ad. like this to be an example that they want their daughters to follow?
If ads. like this are what it takes to win in America these days this country is in real bad shape.
Not only is the ad disgusting, but if someone were to come up to me and say, what kind of woman do you really like? I would simply show them this video, and say, the exact, 180 degree opposite of this thing!
Everything is about the vagina.
Nice tat, which she wants to make sure is shown, because she is so "edgy".
That mayonnaise type complexion that looks sickly
Two eyes that look like olives
Everything is about the vagina
What is really important is someone paying for her birth control. Of course, what follows is certainly someone paying for her abortions.
How vulgar, sick and twisted can you be? As I have said before, if you don't pray, start. And if you do pray, you had better pray like you have never prayed before that the God of Heaven will deliever us from this present evil.
Actually, Shapiro's article was more vulgar than the ad, but he's not running for president either. As for the ad, I'm sure the creator(s) think it's the hippest thing since dropping acid at a Dead concert. I've a feeling the intended audience will just yawn at another lame grown-up attempt at hipness. And frankly you don't have to be vulgar and use crude sexual innuendo to be funny and/or reach that demographic, and in trying to do so, they probably alienated more than they sought to recruit. Shtoopid, really.
Dr. Krauthammer has said that, "Obama has 'forfeited' the stature of the Presidency." It is far worse than that.
With this ad, the foul word he used to describe President Romney, and his saying this about Sen. Rubio when he thought Rubio might be picked for VP: "Tell your boy to watch it. He might get his a** kicked." this blot on American history continues to embarrass our country.
But we have not yet seen the worst...
When a rat is cornered, he defecates, urinates, and squeals...but lashes out, trying to survive. Obama is cornered.
When is someone of stature going to set the subject of sex where it belongs? Sex has two purposes: procreation and recreation. If you are not planning on or hoping for a living child, then you have moved into the recreational area. which is OK, but NOT a women's reproductive health issue. People also get thrills over sky diving, downhill speed skiing, race car or stock car racing and high wire stunts. I don't recall anybody asking to have free parachutes, skis or orthopedic care. Women's reproductive services demanded are entirely about avoiding responsibility from the effects of their "thrill": Someone else is to pay to avoid pregnancy, if pregnancy takes place, someone else pays to have it killed and removed from the body. If the pregnancy is continued so the lamebrained woman has a new toy to play with, then the public should foot that bill, too. Enough!!!
What works in Chicago thug-who-can lie and pay off the best, will hopefully not work in the rest of the U.S. The depths of demonrats will only get lower as they get more deparate--we ain't seen nothin' yet.
It's not even original. Sandinista Daniel Ortega had billboards with young couples and the slogan "the first time do it for love" in his unsuccessful 1990 campaign. See P. J. O'Rourke's "Give War a Chance". Ortega to Putin to Obama - now there's a pedigree!
From the look of this boyish tatooed freak, I don't think she'll EVER be doing anything with a male. Ladies, do not let your daughters look like this. This is pure trash and I can only imagine the stench smoking from her body.
There are no words in any language that could describe the shame, embarrassment, regret, humiliation and revulsion I feel, that this president represents us before the rest of the world. He might as well invite every young woman in America one at a time into his bedroom so he can give them the thrill of parting with their virginity. Who does he think he is? How much lower can he and the moral degenerates who advise him submerge us before we stand as one and scream, "ENOUGH! We've had ENOUGH!"
No surprise that Dunham would perform this sexually suggestive ad for Obama. Wikipedia's entry on her says "Her father, Carroll Dunham, is a painter of 'overtly sexualised pop art', and her mother, Laurie Simmons, is a photographer and designer who creates 'disquieting domestic tableaux' with dolls." Their apple remains close to the parental tree.
This is what is meant by slippery slope. What do you expect when voters re-elected a sexual pervert like Bill Clinton? Now we have ads by a sitting president running for re-election which suggests having sex for the first time is like voting for him. Slippery slope. I cringe to think what will be the next political ad in future elections.
Slippery slope. Bill Clinton was asked by an MTV audience if he wore boxers or briefs. Now the wife of the president, Michelle Obama, was asked if she preferred Barack in boxers or briefs and she answered she preferred he wore nothing. Slippery slope. What is next? Their preferred sexual position? When will the voters demand that politicians and their wives get out of the gutter!
At the center of the 9/11 attacks against the United States by Islamofascist terror, an unlikely hero played a largely unknown role. He sacrificed his life in an attempt to stop the hijacking of one of the planes that later crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. He was an Israeli-American and his role has remained largely ignored and unacknowledged. Danny Lewin was an American-Israeli, a world-class Internet entrepreneur, and the very first person to be murdered by the Al-Qaeda barbarians on September 11, 2001. He was aboard the American Airlines Flight 11 plane out of Boston
On September 11, 2001, 343 firefighters were killed responding to the terror attacks on the World Trade Center. Before they died, they climbed stairs for 110 stories -- the equivalent of the World Trade Center -- in full firefighting gear. Fire departments across the country held events Wednesday to do the same. Some of the firefighters wore regular clothes, and some wore their full 60-pound gear. Either way, firefighters from coast to coast did their best to understand the physical challenges the 343 went through the day of the attacks.
On Tuesday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) suggested that Fox News host Brian Kilmeade was Islamaphobic because he said that Syrian opposition groups shouting “Allahu Akhbar! Allahu Akhbar!” as rockets hit government offices demonstrated Islamist influence among the opposition. “I have a problem helping those people screaming that after a hit,” Kilmeade said. McCain responded: “Would you have a problem with an American or Christians saying ‘thank God? Thank God?’”
Things are moving fast to a Cuban Missile Crisis in Syria, where Obama has been outfoxed by a combination of Russia´s Putin and the war theocracy of Iran. Today we see the makings of a regional war, with weapons of mass destruction and intercontinental missiles in the mix. World headlines now show gassed bodies of Syrian children near Damascus, challenging Obama to put up or shut up on his ever-retreating "red lines".
"If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan." — President Obama, Aug. 11, 2009 So said President Obama again and again through 2009 and 2010 as he sold Obamacare to the country. He promised. He put his personal integrity on the line. His word. How many UPS employees voted for the president in 2008 and again in 2012? Because on Friday, UPS announced it was dumping 15,000 spouses of UPS employees from their UPS health plans despite the president´s many, many promises to the contrary.
WASHINGTON - CBS News has learned that the Pentagon is making the initial preparations for a cruise missile attack on Syrian government forces. We say "initial preparations" because such an attack won´t happen until the president gives the green light. And it was clear during an interview on CNN Friday that he is not there yet. "If the U.S. goes in and attacks another country, without a U.N. mandate and without clear evidence that can be presented," the president told CNN, "then there are questions in terms of whether international law supports it -- ´do we have the coalition to
More than 1,600 new employees hired by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources in the aftermath of Obamacare´s passage include just two described as ´consumer safety´ officers, but 86 tasked with ´criminal investigating´ – indicating that the agency is building an army of detectives to sleuth out violations of a law that many in Congress who supported it still find confusing. On the day President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law in 2010, HHS received authority from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to make as many as 1,814 new hires under an emergency ´Direct Hiring
Recently, Bill Kristol appeared on ABC. He answered a reader´s question about Sarah Palin and spoke of her value to the party, her loyal supporters, and her potential in politics. He went on to suggest that she "rehabilitate" herself by running for the Senate in 2014. "Rehabilitate" isn´t exactly the term one would use when thinking of Sarah Palin´s contribution to conservatism. In fact, as proven in election after election, the only folks who seem to need rehabilitating are some of the experts in the GOP. Despite their criticism, the former Alaska governor has made great strides in reshaping the
A liberal organization tapped Monday to manage a new federal government-sponsored video contest aimed at encouraging young Americans to embrace Obamacare is run by ACORN´s former top lobbyist, MailOnline can reveal. ACORN, the once-mighty Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, crumbled in 2010 just months after a video sting operation showed its employees advising activists posing as a pimp and prostitute on how to evade federal taxes and hide crimes including human trafficking and prostitution.
Small business owners across the country are receiving letters from the IRS questioning if they are reporting all of their cash income, in a new push by the agency some are saying could unnecessarily create fear in the small business community. The Wall Street Journal reports the initiative is an attempt to respond to what the agency feels is a widespread failure by small businesses to report all their cash sales. The agency says the letters are not the same as an audit, and it is simply seeking more tax information from the businesses. However, some lawmakers and business owners who received the letters
Immigration-reform activists aren´t supposed to talk publicly about a Plan B. They can´t, or won´t, answer questions from the media about what they will do if no bill passes this year to legalize the undocumented population. But as August wears on and there is no clear sense of what the House will do on immigration, some are starting to speak out. "There are groups that are for immigration reform no matter what. Then there are groups like us, grassroots...."
According to the Drudge Report, there is a major shakeup under way at Fox News. For the first time in a decade, changes are underway in the network´s top-rated primetime schedule. Afternoon anchor and rising cable news superstar Megyn Kelly is moving into the 9PM hour currently occupied by Sean Hannity. Hannity hosts one of the top two or three hours in all of cable. So it would be a major surprise if "Hannity" wasn´t moved into another primetime slot. This post will be updated as new reports come in.
Megyn Kelly blew out Rachel Maddow in the key demo on Tuesday after losing to her the night before. "I have never seen it in all my years of cable," says Phil Griffin.Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC, says there's something fishy about Tuesday's ratings for the Fox News Channel, which were up significantly from a day earlier when Fox News debuted its new schedule. And he wants an investigation."Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic. On the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, we either tied or beat them in those hours," Griffin said at a briefing, according to TVNewser
On Friday, after blaming conservatives like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the Obama administration´s mishandling of military death benefits, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said Cruz simply did not represent the GOP. Fox News host Martha MacCallum mentioned that Cruz would be visiting President Barack Obama along with other Republican senators like Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Marco Rubio (R-FL) at the White House on Friday. She asked McCain, "How do you feel about him representing you there?" In response, McCain smirked before saying, "First of of all, Martha, please, he´s not representing us there." Also in the interview,
Jen Senko is a filmmaker who watched in horror as her father slowly came to believe the extreme right-wing lies of Rush Limbaugh and other conservative media mavens. Now she’s making a documentary about it calledThe Brainwashing of My Dad. Senko’s first documentary, Road Map Warrior Women, won recognition with several festival awards. Her most recent film, The Vanishing City, co-directed with Fiore DeRosa, exposes the economic policies that have made New York a city for the rich. The Vanishing City won Best Feature Documentary in the Williamsburg International Film Festival, Best Short Documentary in the Harlem International Film Festival, and
On health care, the president´s pile of broken promises keeps getting higher. Consider this gem from Aug. 20, 2009: “Let´s be clear about the fact that nobody has proposed anything close to a government takeover of health care.” Well, yes, somebody did. President Obama is now well on his way to orchestrating the federal government´s takeover of Americans´ health care. Commandeering the resources of major federal departments, particularly the Department of Health and Human Services and the IRS, the administration and its allies in Congress have created numerous federal bureaus, commissions and programs and have issued thousands of pages of rules, regulations,
I pointed out the other day that President Obama has unquestionably been hurt by the government shutdown, but Republicans have been hurt more. How bad is it for the GOP? The most recent Gallup poll shows the GOP is viewed favorably by 28 percent of Americans–down 10 points since September and the lowest number for either party since Gallup began asking the question in 1992. “The Republican Party is clearly taking a bigger political hit from Americans thus far in the unfolding saga,” according to the Gallup analysis. Then there’s a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, which (as Rod Dreher helpfully summarizes)
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- From county chairmen to national party luminaries, veteran Republicans across the country are accusing tea party lawmakers of staining the GOP with their refusal to bend in the budget impasse in Washington. The Republican establishment also is signaling a willingness to strike back at the tea party in next fall´s elections. "It´s time for someone to act like a grown-up in this process," former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu argues, faulting Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and tea party Republicans in the House as much as President Barack Obama for taking an uncompromising stance. Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour
Best-selling conservative author Ann Coulter, who has used her nine books to launch vicious attacks on Democrats, is turning her guns on Republicans in a new book out Monday, calling Florida Sen. Marco Rubio a hypocrite, urging donors freeze contributions to the GOP, and demanding that only governors or senators run for the party’s presidential nomination. Her point in “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3 -- Especially a Republican” is to shake the party out of its doldrums in time for the 2014 and 2016 elections. “Elections matter. We’re trying to make the country a better place. But if our candidates don’t
Good morning. Over the past few days, I’ve met with Republicans and Democrats from both houses of Congress in an effort to reopen your government and remove the dangers of default from our economy. It’s a positive development that House Republicans have agreed on the need to avoid the economic consequences of not meeting our country’s commitments. Because once the debt ceiling is raised, and the shutdown is over, there’s a lot we can accomplish together. We’ve created seven and a half million new jobs in the past three and a half years. Now let’s create more. We’ve cut our deficits in half over
Law: An Obama official at the heart of the Pigford reparations scheme sues the widow of the crusading conservative who exposed her and a multibillion-dollar redistribution scam to African-American farmers. Hell hath no fury like an Obama administration official exposed for corruption or racism. On Wednesday, news broke that Shirley Sherrod, the former USDA official whose speech before an NAACP group revealing her angst about helping a white farmer got her fired, has decided to amend her lawsuit against the late Andrew Breitbart to name Andrew´s widow and mother of four, Susie Bean Breitbart. As Christian Adams recounts on PJ Media, Sherrod,
Boston – A possible glitch in a computer system upgrade was causing major problems nationwide with the Electronic Benefits Transfer System on Saturday, as a countless number of shoppers found themselves stranded at the register. Reports from around the country began pouring in around 9 a.m. on Saturday that customers’ EBT cards were not working in stores. The glitch, however, did not appear to be part of the government shutdown. At 2 p.m., an EBT customer service representative told CBS Boston that the system was currently down for a computer system upgrade. The representative said the glitch is affecting people
Police officers in Los Angeles have long faced accusations of institutional racism, but now it appears their dogs may be unjustly discriminatory, too. A new report focusing on the Canine Special Detail of the LA Sherriff’s Department (LASD) has uncovered a vast increase in the number of minority individuals bitten by police dogs since 2004. And in the first six months of this year, every single victim of a bite by a LASD dog was African-American or Latino.The data was published in a new report by the Police Assessment Resource Centre (Parc), a Los Angeles-based non-profit organisation, devoted to “advancing effective
House Republicans were furious with Senate Republicans and President Obama on Saturday for trying to cut a debt ceiling deal that leaves them out in the cold. Members emerged from a conference meeting saying Obama had double-crossed them by breaking off talks in order to shop for a better deal from the Senate GOP. They said the deal, formulated by centrist Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine.), would never get House GOP approval. “They are trying to jam us with the Senate and we are not going to roll over and take that,” House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said after a GOP
