Less than a day after the Obama campaign launched an online campaign called “The Life of Julia” (which follows a fictitious woman through life and shows what happens if she’s subjected to GOP policies), just about everyone seems to agree that the idea is a bad one. Of course Romney and the RNC jumped on the story.
Romney’s campaign released a statement:
“The fact that President Obama’s campaign has to create fake people to distract from how his abysmal policies have failed real people is sad and extremely pathetic.”
The RNC’s coverage of the clever and entertaining Twitter postings that mock the campaign is also worth a visit.
Even the “Morning Joe” crew on MSNBC had a hard time defending the ad. Joe Scarborough sarcastically wondered “Who’s brushing her teeth?” after jokingly calling co-host Mika Brzezinski a “Marxist.”
Watch as Willie Geist, Donny Deutsch, and even Brzezinski join Joe in slamming the faceless Julia campaign (the idea was so whacky that Mika eve wondered which side benefited more from it):
