This is pretty much exactly what I want to hear coming out of Mitt Romney’s mouth when it comes to things like that ridiculous ‘Julia’ slideshow* from the Obama campaign.
Have you seen President Obama’s vision of the future? To help us see it, his campaign has even created a little fictional character, living an imaginary life filled with happy milestones for which she will spend the rest of her days thanking President Obama. It’s called “The Life of Julia.” And it is a cartoon.
Julia progresses from cradle to grave, showing how government makes every good thing in her life possible. The weak economy, high unemployment, falling wages, rising gas prices, the national debt, the insolvency of entitlements – all these are fictionally assumed away in a cartoon that is produced by a president who wants us to forget about them.
What does it say about a president’s policies when he has to use a cartoon character rather than real people to justify his record?
I won’t belabor the point: unlike President Obama, I trust that the people reading/viewing this are functional adults. Check out the rest of Mitt Romney’s speech here.

*For those who missed it: the Obama administration just recently put out a slideshow that purported to demonstrate the Democrats’ devotion to women’s causes by… suggesting that the only thing that would save one half of the population from utter, nihilistic DOOM would be a slavish devotion to a cradle-to-grave paternalistic slew of government programs.
This slideshow was, as you might imagine, very soundly mocked. Not even the media is trying to pretend that this one was a win for Team Obama.
