This Year’s Chutzpah Award Goes To…
...the Obama campaign, for a letter that it is using in advertising. The Washington Examiner reports:
The Obama-Biden campaign’s web page featured a “letter of the week” from a 25-year-old woman who wrote that “I am one of the 47% of Americans who fall under Mitt Romney’s definition of ‘entitled’ and ‘unable to take responsibility for my life.’ I have Down syndrome.”
The letter comes on the heel of the campaign’s TV ad playing in battleground states that uses the audio of Romney dismissing efforts to win over 47 percent of voters dedicated to Obama because they receive some kind of government assistance. While the Romney campaign said the context is about the election and not how he will approach the nation as president, the Obama campaign has made the case that Romney won’t look out for those who need help.
Enter “Brittany” and her letter. In it, she said that she is a registered Democrat, and on assistance, which she said makes her part of Obama’s 47 percent.
“My mother applied for Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income program (SSI) for me when I was 19. I really want to make lots of money and have a hot tub someday, but SSI subtracts my paychecks from my SSI benefits, so I don’t have much to put into a savings account,” she wrote.
“I am now working for a store, folding clothes and doing returns. I like my job a lot! I make $4.98 an hour and I am allowed to work 25-30 hours a week (I have paid $542.72 in federal, FICA, state, and city taxes this year as of August 31st),” she added in a knock at Romney’s other comment that many of Obama’s supporters don’t pay taxes.
So here’s where the chutzpah comes in: under the abortion regime defended with fanatical frenzy by the president and his supporters, there was a 9-in-10 chance that Brittany would never have had the opportunity to write her letter, because 90% of all preborn children diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome are aborted. She is one of the blessed few who get to live a life where they can dream of having a hot tub. One wonders if anyone has explained this to her, and if she’d still be supporting Obama if anyone did.
