Typical: "Republican" Woman in Obama Campaign Ad is Actually a Registered Democrat

First, watch the entire clip (via Buzzfeed):

 

At first blush, this spot looks like one of those insufferable campaign ads suggesting Mitt Romney wants to roll back women’s reproductive rights, or whatever.  We’ve seen that played out before, of course, except in this spot (I can’t say I’m surprised) there is a registered Democrat/left-wing activist caught red-handed playing the aggrieved ex-Republican card. Incredible

One of the women in the Obama campaign's new video of Republicans supporting the president because of GOP positions on women's rights appears not to be a Republican at all.

 

Maria Ciano who is featured in the web video has been a registered Democrat since October 2006 according to voter registration records.

"People like me and my family have realized that the Republican Party once was inline with our views, but are no longer," the Colorado resident says in the video.

The video is one component of a larger Obama campaign push on women in light of the recent controversy surrounding Todd Akin.

 

The president cannot run on his record and win re-election.  Therefore, he will focus on non-economic issues that (a) resonate with certain constituencies and (b) portray Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as extremists.  Perhaps this is why the Democratic National Convention -- as Kate humorously pointed out earlier in the week -- is slowly but surely turning into a giant pro-choice rally. As we noted earlier, however, a recent CNN poll reveals that Americans are becoming increasingly pro-life -- that is to say, 62 percent now support some legal restrictions on abortion.  President Obama believes he can win re-election by making women’s issues the focus of his campaign.  It's a bold strategy, to be sure, but one the voters already seem to be rejecting.

Rush Limpbaugh didn't even vote until he was 36 after he got his 1st radio show.
he idolizes Ronnie Reagan whom he calls Ronaldo Maximus and yet NEVER voted for him either time he ran and NEVER met the man personally.
He is a big phony of the highest order who makes 50 million a year to spread the Lies of Right-Wing think tanks like the Heritage Foundation who do his thinking for him and give him "his stacks of stuff".
He,like most CONservatives are unable to think for themselves because they are unable to argue intelligently against the truth.
Limpbaugh simply gets paid by his corporate owners as do all of hate radio and FOX personalities to Lie,tell half-truths,or twist the truth.
It's the old Hitler,Goebbels,Goering ploy of repeating a Lie over and over until it becomes the truth and is understood by what they called the Common Scum on the ground who make up their listening audience.
The left has nothing close to the Conservative Media Lie and Deception Machine!
