New GOP ad hits Obama campaign for Wintour ad, jobs report

posted at 10:21 am on June 4, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

The RNC calls this ad “Meanwhile,” but perhaps they could have called it “While Obama Wears Prada.”  Jazz wrote yesterday about the Barack Obama campaign ad starring Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, widely known to be the model for the sadistic boss in the book and film The Devil Wears Prada.  The ad itself has to be seen to be believed.  Bear in mind that this is the same campaign that has spent much of the past month and more slamming Mitt Romney for being a member of the 1%, for being out of touch with the reality of working-class Americans.  And their new ambassador to the working class is … “Nuclear” Wintour?

The parodies will write themselves, but the RNC mainly plays this one straight.  Instead of overtly ridiculing the ad, they simply play it in the background while pointing out that Obama attended six — six — fundraisers the day that the disastrous jobs report came out on Friday, and then reminds viewers that joblessness is up in every category over the last four years:

Via Jim Geraghty, Chris Wallace and Juan Williams yesterday called the Wintour ad “a mistake” on Fox News Sunday:

Fox News’ Chris Wallace: “Here’s another blunder that you may not have seen. On the day, Friday, when all of the bad economic news came out, the Obama campaign decided that was the day to release a video of Anna Wintour. If you don’t know her, she is the editor of a fashion magazine, Vogue. Saying to people contribute to the Obama campaign and you can come to a big exclusive dinner in New York that Sarah Jessica Parker and I are hosting. Take a look at this.”

Vogue’s Anna Wintour: “Sarah Jessica and I both have our own reasons for supporting President Obama, and we want to hear yours. So please join us, but just don’t be late.”

Wallace: “Yes, don’t be late. And this is on the day when we find out that the economy created only 69,000 jobs. First of all, do you subscribe to Chip’s idea that the campaign is off to a shaky start, and if so, how big a deal.” Fox News’

Juan Williams: “By the way, that was hilarious. That looks like a parody. It looked like the Romney campaign planted Dr. Evil in the house of Obama and he said, ‘you know on the day the grim job numbers come out let’s have someone who reeks of ornamental excess announce that the peasants can have a place at the table.’ It’s just unbelievable. I mean, so you know, just a mistake.”

Speaking of the peasantry, the lowest ticket price for any of these fundraisers was $2500 a pop.  Looks like the only way the peasants get to see the King is if Wintour allows them access:

Flying to Minnesota under the banner of “official business” – an event at a Honeywell factory in a Minneapolis suburb – Obama will quickly turn to politics, lunching with three separate sets of donors at the downtown Bachelor Farmer restaurant, an eatery owned by Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton’s two sons, Eric and Andrew.

The president will first address a group of 100 guests, each paying $5,000 a plate.  He then will meet privately with two small roundtables of deep-pocket supporters – one group paying $40,000 per person; the other $50,000 per person, a campaign official said.  (The $50k ticket price is the largest for any Obama fundraiser held since the start of the campaign.)

Proceeds from all the events will benefit OVF, a joint fundraising account that funnels contributions to Obama for America, the Democratic National Committee and several state Democratic parties. The first $5,000 of an individual’s contribution will go directly to the Obama campaign; the remainder, up to $30,800, will go to the DNC; and anything beyond $35,800 will get distributed to state parties, officials said.

In the evening, President Obama will head to Chicago for three more fundraisers – a televised campaign reception at the Chicago Cultural Center with an estimated 350 fans (tickets will cost $2,500+ per person) and two intimate dinners at private residences.  Tickets for the dinners cost $35,800 apiece, an official said.

Unbelievable is the right word.

But you have to go to JoinObama.com for your chance to win and the contest ends tomorrow night so go right here, right now. Because we need him and he needs us,” Sarah Jessica Parker pleads in the ad.

These idiots are acting like they’ve already turned the corner on overthrowing our Capitalist system and are right on the verge of returning to the Feudal era. They try to use OWS as the last final push to turn people against big business, while imploring their aristocrat, ruling class donors to give more money in exchange for being in the company of noted “beautiful people”. Little do they know that the silent majority is far from dead.

The fact that they ran this during the MTV Movie Awards show tells you all you need to know about Democrats and Liberals. They are all about style over substance.

Their ad just showcases that they would follow a glossy 8×11 glossy Madison Avenue marketing photo over someone who actually has a plan and purpose.

Obama was a marketing plan that worked. That’s all. They bought into a message without substance. Unfortunately, when they got their package, it lacked an instruction manual, was missing pieces, and didn’t work.

Obama, Clinton to Headline Trio of NYC Fundraisers

President Barack Obama is getting a little help from former President Bill Clinton at a trio of campaign fundraisers in New York.

The presidential duo will speak at a high-dollar fundraiser at a private home, then headline a gala at the Waldorf Astoria hotel. Obama and Clinton will end the night at an event dubbed “Barack on Broadway” at the New Amsterdam Theatre.

Monday’s trip is Obama’s first of two fundraising blitzes in New York over the next two weeks. He will return to Manhattan next week for a fundraiser at the home of actress Sarah Jessica Parker.

Obama is seeking to persuade voters that he is still the right steward for the economy following a dismal jobs report out last week that showed an uptick in the unemployment rate.

Flora Duh on June 4, 2012 at 11:30 AM

It can’t be said often enough, the entire Obama crew, especially The Clod himself, are truly dumb, dull, lost little people. Less the huge crutch of the media, which seems more & more unable to cover for them, they are embarrassingly incompetent.

Maybe Kathleen Sebelius can go too. She and Sarah Jessica Parker can play Kentucky Derby.

Reminds me of this ad from 1980:

You could go the Elizabeth Warren route. They’re not allowed to question your self-identification.

Guess I was wrong.

Carry on.

I thought most women understood men.

Guess I was wrong.

Carry on.

As a long time horse owner, I’m tired of all the insults to horses on this thread! /

Just because she’s a liberal doesn’t make the comments about her looks less insulting than similar comments found on Daily Kos about Michelle Malkin and Ann Coulter’s looks.

Flora Duh on June 4, 2012 at 10:45 AM

You’re wrong. Parker makes her living based to a large degree on her looks. Wintour earns hers by deciding what people should look like. Malkin and Coulter do not.

Think barry will lose the occupy vote with all the 1 percenters coming out for him?

peacenprosperity on June 4, 2012 at 12:57 PM

These new republican party hates the middle class. Their goal is to do all they can to turn this country into one of those third world countries. You know, the ones where the upper 1% controls everything.

Uppereastside, you’re a total idiot. How many prosecutions for financial fraud have there been under Obama? How is it that Corzine, who stole a billion dollars, is still raising money for Obama? Your POTUS is a liar and a crook. Step away from the thigamajig, crank crack pipe, Uppereastside.

“Okay, the guy who opposed The Surge which ended the war in Iraq,

Fixed it for anyone interested in the truth.

The RNC calls this ad “Meanwhile,” but perhaps they could have called it “While Obama Wears Prada.

I would have called it “The Devil Wears Mom Jeans.

The RNC, Romney and Crossroads ads have been stellar and timely. I do hope they run them on MTV, Comedy Central etc. Time to start preaching beyond the choir.

Sprayed my soda on that one.
