The Dumbing Down of America

Several examples of the “dumbing down” of America —

Howard Stern’s crew did “man on the street” interviews.  Don’t know how the interviewer kept a straight face (rather, voice) as the Obama voters he interviewed didn’t know the interviewer was asking trick questions (such as mentioning that Ryan was on the Obama ticket, Palin and McCain were running, Romney was black, etc.).  Gotta hear it for yourself!

Vox5 here, another example of why pro-family voters should NOTvote for Obama — see this link from Family Research Council for explaining the commercial featuring Lena Dunham who explains that voting for Obama in ’08 is like losing one’s virginity to ‘a really great guy’.  Are you kidding me?   This is “using” women and shows the disrespect this President and his advisors have for AMERICA’S WOMEN!  See the  commercial yourself below . . . maybe you’ll see this for the first time.  Be sure to NOT have young kids with you when you watch it and your Facebook wall open so you can exclaim to all of your friends, “HOW could he (Obama) ‘approve this message’?

THEN, THERE’S The View to see how (some) Americans are being brainwashed . . .

Expressing Ann Opinion

There’s a reason ABC doesn’t call its show, “The Views.” As far as these ladies are concerned, there’s only one view — and that’s extreme liberalism. Ann Romney understood that better than anyone heading into yesterday’s interview, which made her time on the blue couch all the more impressive. Despite one punishing question after another, Ann was every bit the warm, poised, and articulate woman Americans have come to admire. The barrage Ann faced couldn’t have been more different from the Obamas’ visit three weeks earlier, where the hosts asked about such hard-hitting topics as their first kiss and the girls’ bedtime rituals.

Before Ann had even settled into her seat, Barbara Walters bypassed the chit-chat and went straight for the jugular with a question on abortion. She asked if Ann, like Governor Romney, had changed her views on the topic. “The good news is I’m not running for office, and I don’t have to say what I feel,” Ann replied with a big smile. “But I am pro-life. I’m happy to say that.” As happy as she is to say it, Americans are even happier to hear it. For the first time since Roe v. Wade, our nation would finally have a First Lady who shares its pro-life convictions.

“Mitt has always been a pro-life person,” Ann explained. “He governed when he ran pro-choice — but when a decision came across his desk to use embryos for experimentation… he could not have on his conscience, creating human life for experimentation. And that’s when he came out with an editorial saying he was pro-life.” Her response was heartfelt, it was confident, and it showed amazing backbone in an interview that became more of inquisition than anything else.

Unlike Walters, Whoopie Goldberg made no attempts to hide her disdain. Unfortunately for Whoopie, another thing she couldn’t hide was her complete ignorance. During a conversation about military service, Goldberg completely botched her “gotcha” moment by totallymisrepresenting Mormonism. “As first lady… [you’ll be] talking to the mothers whose children are coming home in bags, you know, from wars. Now, I know — I believe that your religion doesn’t allow you to go fight –” “No, that’s not correct,” Ann explained. “We have many, many members of our faith that are serving in the armed forces.” Instead of landing a blow, Goldberg hurt herself — and the show. If these are “The View’s” standards for accuracy, then it’s no wonder millions of women are misled on issues like contraception, abortion, and health care.

Through all the insinuations and mischaracterizations, Ann turned in a performance that was second only to her husband’s comedy routine later that night. Believe me, it takes a lot of courage to stand up for your convictions in a hostile environment like that one. And while we don’t always agree with Barbara Walters, she did get one thing right: Ann is a wonderful advocate for her husband.
