More evidence of President Obama’s faltering re-election effort: his campaign has released a new ad comparing voting for the president to virgin sex. Has it really come to this?
So, we know it’s a last-ditch effort on the president’s part to convince Millennial voters to turn out. Problem is, the youth unemployment rate approached 12 percent in September. Enthusiasm just isn’t there. True, some Millennials might turn out just at the prospect of getting some action behind that curtain — until they find out the only action is filling in ovals on a white sheet of paper. Pretty boring, actually.
The die-hard lefties love the ad, but it will creep out middle America. At this point, if Obama is still trying to shore up the base that this ad appeals to, he’s in deep trouble.
The only surprise here: Chris Matthews doesn’t make a comeo in the spot.
