The Obama campaign targeted young women yesterday with an insulting and degrading ad equating voting for Obama with losing one’s virginity. Conservative women are fed up with being viewed as little more than a collection of lady parts and are fighting back.
Concerned Women for America is out with a new campaign that smacks down OFA’s “Your First Time” ad and its insinuation that American women care only about access to free birth control and abortion on demand. With the “Lady Smarts,” campaign, CWA shines the spotlight on what really matters to women: jobs and the economy.
Washington, D.C. — In response to the Obama campaign’s “Your First Time” ad featuring Lena Dunham, Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee CEO and President Penny Nance announced the launch of the “Lady Smarts” campaign. “Lady Smarts” seeks to dispel the liberal notion that women are monolithic voters and are only concerned about free contraception and abortion. “Lady Smarts” refutes liberal efforts to distract from the real concerns of voters by alleging a phony “war on women” and highlights the fact that women’s issues are everyone’s issues. Our major concerns this election are jobs and the economy.
“I’m saddened to see the liberal women of this country allow themselves to be painted into a corner and portrayed as single-minded and only concerned about getting free stuff,” Nance said. “I’ve traveled across this country and women of all backgrounds are telling me that this election is not just about their ovaries, they’re thinking about the overall picture of the economy.”
Brilliant — and devastating. Women deserve far more from this president than cab fare and a pat on the head; they deserve to be taken seriously. It’s time for President Obama to take a seat and let the lady smarts take over.
