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!
An Iraq veteran who thought he was buying an iPad as a Christmas present after responding to a Craigslist posting, has been shot dead in an Indianapolis parking lot by the fake sellers. New-dad Jim Vester, 32, was lured to an address on Wednesday in the west side of the city and brothers Tyron Kincade, 19, and Tyshaune Kincade, 18, have been arrested after Vester was shot dead leaving behind his one-year-old son, Gavin and wife, Jamie.
A nuclear arms race is now arising in the Middle East, starting with an Iranian nuke, then a Saudi and Egyptian one. Nobody knows the end game. Obama´s biggest legacy may be worldwide instability for years to come. This administration is coming to an end. If you take away its corruption and thuggery, its constant scapegoating, its weird cast of characters, its astronomical spending, its drone killings of terrorists who were supposed to be dead last year, and its healthcare debacle -- everything comes down to imperial overreach.
ObamaCare was sold to the nation as a compassionate response to the approximately 47 million uninsured Americans. Yet, 30 million Americans will still not be insured even after the frenetic misrepresentation and bribery required to pass the bill and the botched rollout. Plus, the policies of millions of insured Americans are being cancelled and replaced with HHS "approved" policies that have higher premiums. Then, following the wipeout in the individual market, millions of Americans currently covered by employer-provided plans will have their policies cancelled because they are deemed inadequate and unacceptable under the ObamaCare regulations issued by HHS.
Muslims groups around the world are crying Islamophobia and playing the victim card as horrific Islamic-motivated crimes, such as grooming and rape-gangs, rage on with impunity throughout the Western world, especially in Europe. Rape or grooming gangs, which are almost entirely Muslim, are committing a crime that is religiously mandated in Islamic doctrine. Muslim grooming gangs have been operating unchallenged in Europe for over 20 years, especially in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, and France.
I am one who steers very clear of tinfoil hat conspiracy theories. I often believe progressives plant stories in order to distract and disrupt, enabling them to pursue their true goals and objectives. That’s why I stress the importance of staying focused on the modern liberal socialist policies of the Obama administration, not the sideshow antics. However, as a former combat commander, I have been trained to look for trends. And I believe we’ve found a very disturbing one. It seems that backdoor gun control is in full effect in the United States.
Wake up, Mom and Dad: your government has its paws all over your children during school hours -- always figuratively, and too often literally. If parents are taken out of the education equation completely, something will fill the vacuum. And that something is bound to be the police state. When kids in Brazil, Indiana participated in a mock drug raid at Clay County Courthouse as part of the annual October Red Ribbon Awareness week, they got a lesson in what it´s like to live in a police state.
Comrade Obama and the Politburo, both conveniently located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, are in the midst of overhauling the nation´s military. Radically so, as befits the nation´s most radical president. Downsizing the armed forces is the cover, in part. The people´s savior is giving the heave-ho to military brass who can´t quite get with the program, which might be described as inflicting a smothering political correctness on the nation´s armed forces. Political correctness is actually too charitable.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
