Quotes of the day

posted at 8:51 pm on May 4, 2012 by Allahpundit

“Back in his Wisconsin district today to hold a series of listening sessions, House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan commented on President Obama’s latest campaign mascot, a hypothetical woman whom the campaign calls ‘Julia.’ Ryan called the imaginary character ‘creepy,’ and called the idea of creating a fictional woman dependent on the government ‘demeaning.’

“‘It suggests that this woman can’t go anywhere in life without Barack Obama’s government-centered society. It’s kind of demeaning to her,’ Ryan said. ‘She must have him and his big government to depend on to go anywhere in life. It doesn’t say much about his faith in Julia.’…

“‘It really shows the philosophical premise they operate from, which is — I think Romney coined it well — it’s a ‘government-centered society.’ You have to have government at every stage of your life to be there for you, otherwise, you’re going to fail. It’s promoting a cradle-to-grave welfare society,’ said Ryan.”

***

“Julia’s central relationship is to the state. It is her educator, banker, health-care provider, venture capitalist, and retirement fund. And she is, fundamentally, a taker. Every benefit she gets is cut-rate or free. She apparently doesn’t worry about paying taxes. It doesn’t enter her mind that the programs supporting her might add to the debt or might have unintended consequences. She has no moral qualms about forcing others to pay for her contraception, and her sense of patriotic duty is limited to getting as much government help as she can…

“The point of view of ‘The Life of Julia’ is profoundly condescending. It assumes that giving people things will distract them from larger considerations of the public weal — the economy, debt, the health of the culture. This view’s infantilizing tendency is captured by Obamacare’s insistence that, for purposes of health insurance, young adults are children who belong on their parents’ policies until the age of 26. It devalues self-reliance and looks at us less as independent citizens than as drab Julias, bereft without the succor of our life partner and minder, the state.”

***

“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.’”

***

“The most shocking bit of the Obama story is that Julia apparently never marries. She simply “decides” to have a baby, and Obama uses other people’s money to help her take care of it. Julia doesn’t appear to be poor; at various points the story refers to her glamorous career as a Web designer, and it makes no mention of her benefiting from poverty programs like Medicaid or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.

“In 1999 Lionel Tiger coined the word ‘bureaugamy’ to refer to the relationship between officially impoverished mothers of illegitimate children and the government. ‘The Life of Julia’ is an insidious attack on the institution of the family, an endorsement of bureaugamy even for middle-class women.”

***

“How might Julia’s son, whom she names Zachary, fare in a post-Obama world? Herewith ‘The Life of Zachary.’

“Age 5: Zachary starts kindergarten. Julia drops Zachary off at his first day of public kindergarten. She is surprised and perplexed to find that despite the hefty local property taxes she pays, the class is large. While Zachary is at school, Julia does some Googling and finds that more and more of her taxes pay for pension and health benefits for retired teachers, not for salaries for current teachers. She wonders vaguely whether all that money from the federal government will really help Zachary…

“Age 25: Zachary meets a nice girl. Zachary meets a woman at work (his employer has taken a legal chance on this hardworking young lady). But in getting to know her, Zachary learns that she has $70,000 in student loans, plus $10,000 in credit-card debt. She makes about the same salary that Zachary does. Zachary likes her, but he can’t help but worry that if he got serious with her, he would be taking on a tremendous debt burden. Zachary often thinks long-term; he realizes that if he married her in a few years, both of them would have to work full-time, even if they had children, in order to stay current on the debt. They remain friends.”

“Age 42: Zachary’s mom calls him, crying. Julia is 73 now. She likes working, so she wasn’t too upset when the government abruptly pushed the Social Security retirement age for full benefits back five years, to 72. But now that she’s been collecting benefits for a year, she realizes that what she collects isn’t enough to live on. She’s more upset, though, at the reforms to Medicare that have just been enacted. Though generations of politicians promised never to touch benefits for people close to retirement age, in the end, they had no choice: younger voters demanded it. The basic Medicare package now will cover only big-ticket items. All but the poorest are on their own when it comes to doctor’s visits, prescription drugs, and tests.”

***

“‘I would love to see the DNC or somebody follow up with a ‘Here’s what life under the Romney-[Paul] Ryan plan would be like for Julia,” said Finney. ‘She’d be in the grave by her mid-30s I can almost assure you.’”

Why do these arrogant pols think they know what is best for everyone? Is there a school for that? Why yes there is. It’s called theory school where you sit around and discount every conceivable idea that has been shown to be successful and come up with new or old ways to control people. Oh, and the good news is these nice people don’t have to live by what they come up with.

You’ll notice that the Obama campaign forgot the slides that say Obama repealed the 22nd amendment, became President for Life, and became immortal. The guy is POTUS for 64 years, at least, of Julia’s life and he is 50 now.

Don’t get confused by the lack of a husband/father in the picture, as many have. The explanation is obvious. Julia is a lesbian and Zachary was conceived via IVF treatments, which were “free” under Obamacare.

Well, the word has been greatly associated with Communism, Fascism, etc., for more than a century as I document in the link that I provided.

‘She’d be in the grave by her mid-30s I can almost assure you.’

Now, that mindset exposes the real War on Women by liberal Democrats. Absolutely stomach wrenching.

Fallon on May 4, 2012 at 9:28 PM

A quote worthy of note from Jehmu Greene addressing Tucker Carlson on Megyn Kelly’s show today, on the subject of candidate Elizabeth Warren’s claims of minority status. Greene attempted to twist the criticism of Warren’s claims of minority status into an attack on Warren’s job qualifications purely because Warren is allegedly a woman as well as Cherokee. But she threw in a derogatory racial reference as well:

“To question this woman on her qualifications is going to be something that does appeal to folks like you, voters like you bow-tyin’ white boys…”

Nice, eh?

Kelly apparently couldn’t believe her ears when it went down. She apologized for her guest later in the show.

So far as I know, no apology from Jehmu Greene.

arnold ziffel on May 4, 2012 at 9:24 PM

I used to think that way, too, but I think that you have to look at it as a multi-dimensional chessboard. They know the history of the word. THERE IS NO WAY THAT THEY CANNOT GIVEN WHO HAS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH IT. They also know that the media and leftie talking heads will pose the same question to “regular people” (read: not political junkies like us) that you just did.

“Awwww, c’mon, you can’t really believe that the campaign would be so foolish to intentionally play their cards that way, do you?”

The MSM gives them plausible deniability while they are winking to their fellow travelers on the Left.

For all their bluster about us righties being uneducated hicks they know differently and do fear us.

Unfortunately I don’t think there are as many people offended by this Julia nonsense as I would have thought. What happened to ambition, self reliance (and the pleasure of that) How many years has this been seeping in anyway??

Recently I was having lunch with a longtime friend (since childhood) who has been unemployed for a very long time. She is on the EBT card and lives with a relative who can only provide shelter for her. She actually said that everyone should have shelter,food, clothes and spending money provided for them, this should be a law or some such thing. Nothing about her working for it, contributing toward it. It should just be. I was non plussed, didn’t want to argue because she is on the edge in other ways, but man…. so I paid the bill and took her to her home. She is terrified Romney will win and put her into a camp. *shakes head*

DoubleClutchin on May 4, 2012 at 10:26 PM

The basic Medicare package now will cover only big-ticket items. All but the poorest are on their own when it comes to doctor’s visits, prescription drugs, and tests.”

When I read today that the number of employed was the lowest since 1981 I decided to take a look at the census. In 1980 there were 226 million people in the country. In 2010 there were 308 million. Much of the increase has been fueled by immigrants, many of who entered the country illegally. Referring back to the article on illegals getting $1,000 refunds per child you can easily see how our government’s funds will continue to evaporate if we remain the dumping ground for the world’s uneducated and unskilled.

I didn’t understand the last about her benefits being over by the trench. Trenches are not good—for some they are, some not.

Anderson actually calls some moveon.org moron out on this phoney “war on women” and exposes the left for the hypocritical partisan fools that they are.

It is a sight to behold.

I think they want her to, er, get in line next to it. And the “new generation of helpful public servants” just happen to have shiny new rifles…

pookysgirl on May 4, 2012 at 10:56 PM

Why then do they excuse the dips that are effing up?

arnold ziffel on May 4, 2012 at 10:21 PM

I cannot say without knowing the individuals.

However, the realistic cynic in me offers the following possibilities…

It is an opportunity to display faux compassion and empathy for their lessers without having to actually do anything about it — the government will take care of them, the poor things.

And/or they are reflexivity making the noises they have been conditioned and indoctrinated to make, playing the role of the compassionate caring open minded liberal with regard to a blameless victim of society. They are rewarded with emotional cookies for doing this.

The bonus, for the true hypocrites, is the opportunity to condemn those who do not display the same compassion and empathy. It satisfies their need to feel superior without guilt.

thank you miss pooky. I didn’t think she was there to fetch water or use it as a latrine. arnold smells trouble.

At 33, while still a university coed, Julia joins S. L. U. T. S. (Single, Living Under The State) and receives her membership certificate personally signed by organization president Sanda Fluke.

In fact, a lot of trouble ahead for all of us.

Ryan called the imaginary character ‘creepy,’ and called the idea of creating a fictional woman dependent on the government ‘demeaning.’

LoLz..Looks like this is going to work out as well as the SAHM attack worked out for Team Obie..:)

The way the ratings of Anderson Cooper and the rest of CNN fell in April I guess they are ready to try anything – even acting like real reporters if they are forced to.

I had long suspected women would starve to death covered in their own excrement if Big Daddy wasn’t there to hold their hand. Thanks for confirming my suspicions Barack!

You are one smart fellow sir. Just remember the B and C were all we had at the start of the big one.

PS, an ill fated flight from back east to Sacto via Van Nuys, never made it. Oct. 1941. Two or three crashed in Kern county.
