Young Woman Breaks Up with Obama in New RNC Ad: VIDEO


The newest ad from the RNC, which will be "worked into rotation," according to CNN, features a young woman breaking up with Obama at dinner, throwing down her napkin, and saying:

“Listen, this just isn’t working. It’s been four years. You’ve changed. Your spending is out of control. You’re constantly on the golf course. And you’re always out with Hollywood celebrities. You think I didn’t see you with George Clooney or Sarah Jessica Parker?”

  1. This is what they think of women. Pathetic.

  2. Wow, this ad is stupid even by Romney's standards. Are they actually accusing Obama of loafing on the job. Wait until someone pulls out the stats on Romney's off days as Governor of Massachusetts.

  3. Seriously, is this the best the RNC can do?! lol
    I bet crybaby, hot drunken mess Reince Priebus came up with this gem!

  4. Terrible acting, appeals to the least intellgent type of voter. And, BTW, Mitt's cardboard cutout would be a lot stiffer and more two-dimensional.

  5. The ad is both stupid and poorly produced. What Denny's in Kansas was it filmed in?

    Three funny details I noticed: Her water glass if nearly full; his is empty, a riff on the tired glass half full / half empty. She is of ambiguous racial / ethnic appearance -- is this a nudge at Mr. Obama's mixed race ethnicity? She has a vague resemblance to Monica Lewinsky.

    And a fourth -- she's stupid. You always wait until the end of dinner to break up and walk out -- so you stiff the breakee with the check. Anyway, that's how I always do it.

  7. They're not serious are they? The RNC, I mean? Do they really think this is going to work? They've managed to insult women (because republicons do that almost as if its second nature for them) and golfers (insinuating that golfers are lazy slackers), among other people.

    All one has to do is to compare the vacation and slack time that G. W. Bush took and Ronald Reagan took to that of Mr. Obama or, even, Bill Clinton, to demonstrate that the art of goofing off in the Oval Office is a republicon specialty.

    This ad by the RNC is really, really pathetic and quite frankly, Bush league (pun intended).

  8. After the smack down they just received by women at the convention ... this is what they put out?

    If it isn't clear by now, the RNC is pathetic.

  9. The pathetic thing is, that some people buy into this. I can't tell you how many people I've seen making comments about how the Obamas would rather be hanging out with celebrities, or appearing on talk shows, or going on vacation. Because, you know, W never went on vacation.

  11. What I learned from this video
    1)Republicans aren't funny
    2)They hire people who can't act to let us know that this is supposed to be a joke

  12. Is the insinuation supposed to be racist and homophobic?

  15. And the award for the least useful ad in GOP history goes to ...

  16. This has to have been put out by the dems to make the repubs look stupid. No way the repubs really thought this was a good idea.

  17. Shush. Don't tell the RNC that Bush II took more vacation in his first four years in office than Obama did. They don't like facts.

  18. Not to be mean or anything, bu that woman isn't a very good actress or she was directed horribly.

  19. The more desperate the RNC gets, the stupider their campaign ads become.

    At this rate, the next RNC ad will consist of monkeys flinging poop at a crayon drawing of Obama.
