Conservatives Are Flipping Out Over 'Julia,' Obama's Mythical Poster Girl For His Policies On Women

Conservatives on Twitter are fighting back against another Barack Obama “composite” girl. Yesterday, it was an apparent revelation that Obama “compressed” multiple ex-girlfriends into one in his memoir “Dreams from My Father,” which he actually already “revealed” in the book.

Today, it’s “Julia.” “Julia” is the theoretical poster girl for the Obama campaign to highlight the differences between Obama and Mitt Romney’s policies and how they would affect women. 

Conservatives are freaking out about this because — beside the policy disagreements —  she’s just way too dependent on government help.

The Obama campaign has compressed The Life Of Julia into an infographic. Here’s the hook:

“Take a look at how President Obama’s policies help one woman over her lifetime—and how Mitt Romney would change her story.”

Head start: Fictional Julia is starting school, which, according to the Obama campaign, she could do because of the Head Start program. Those figures have yet to be confirmed by any major non-partisan agency.

Can Julia afford college?

The RNC's pushback: College tuition is higher than ever and is going to keep rising.

This one hits on Romney's plan to repeal Obamacare and one of its most popular provisions. But, still, 55 per cent want it repealed, according to a poll this week from Rasmussen.

A direct hit on Romney's refusal to support the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

Now hitting on the student-loan issue.


At 27, the Obama campaign presents Julia in the debate of covering contraception, hitting the other side again for not supporting it. But this is a highly partisan issue with some religious implications as well.

Whoa, Julia got old fast.

She's 65 now. This is the debate over which side will really 'end Medicare as we know it.' The RNC also pushed back with the recent report that showed Medicare and Social Security in bad shape.

At 67, Julia retires. Will there even be Social Security?
