A cradle to grave look at what a government-centered life can get you.

The government is there at your every need, beck and call.

This has turned into amazing ridicule and mockery on Twitter for the obama campaign.

Here is the winner so far;

Jim Messina, obama's campaign manager is getting roasted alive on Twitter.

This is HILARIOUS!

Reminds me of the WTF (Winning the Future) campaign slogan rollout...that disappeared.

Here's the REAL life of Julia;

Obama left out a bit of Julia's life under government control.

10 years: Trapped in a failing and dangerous public school, Julia (another Julia, not the dead one) is terrified and miserable. Under the Obama administration, protecting the government education monopoly from competition and accountability is almost as sacrosanct as abortion. School-choice programs are severely constrained or eliminated.
Under government control, Julia has no choice in the matter.

How about posting a link to the Obama thing instead of just criticism's of it? We can make up our own mind.

I read this earlier on another source. How pathetic. Typical liberal leftie thinking. Julia is not what I would ever want my daughter to become. A loser expecting the government to pay her way.

Does this mean you're no longer supporting the president?

I love it! Obama posts something that says, "Look! You have to subsidize this ENTIRE WOMAN'S LIFE!!!"

This is going to backfire BIG TIME.

I hope it will backfire. It should. Women should be enraged. The Obama campaign is basically suggesting that women are incapable of taking care of themselves and need the government to be there at every turn for them.

Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of faith that people will see it that way because of the entitlement mentality (among both men and women) in our culture that seems to be getting worse and worse.
