Powerful new Romney web ad features students who voted for Obama

Now this is a powerful web ad that plays off of Obama admitting that he can’t change Washington from the inside. More of this please:

    We need to help this go viral on all the social sites. The next generation is going to be the hardest hit by this POTUS.

    • toongoon

      …and that’s a fact whether he is reelected or not. All we can do is limit the damage.
      This needs to go viral.

  • grenadiadrian

    Voter’s remorse = voter’s revenge. You’re right, Scoop, MORE OF THESE ADS PLEASE!!!!

  • toongoon

    They wanted to be able to tell their children one day that they elected Obama president and he improved their lives. Now all they want to do is defeat him to improve their lives.

    • I really feel for the next generation. My husband and I elected not to have children, but if we had, we would be worrying about what they’re about to face, of all the failures BO has inflected upon us, what he’s done to these kids is the worst kind of exploitation.

      • toongoon

        The good thing is. Obama did not win in a landslide and like these kids, many of those who voted for him are saying they will vote against him. Obama is not running any ads with people saying they voted for McLame in 08 but will vote for obama this time.
        As far as a new president, things are looking brighter, as far as correcting the problems, it remains to be seen.

        • I pray every night that we get Romney over the finish line and go from there, but you’re right, who knows what the future will bring.

      • sDee

        Martha you are so right. We have four, for whom 2008 was their first significant election. I tried desperately in 2008 to make them understand that Obama was not what what he appeared. That he was a dangerous islamo-marxist ideologue, intent on undermining our economy and our sovereignty. I was not cool, and a racist, don’t you know?

        I grew up hearing first hand the inevitable oppression and misery that socialism brings. I knew the moment Obama was elected that the rest of my lifetime would be spent fighting it and (hopefully) repairing its destruction.

        And, as you say I do this because I fear for my kids future. A future of government control, filled with misery, which they have no idea of yet. But I can tell you that my kids get it now. They get Liberty and they get what the Founders built into our form of government. And they are not alone – more of their friends are coming around.

        This ad is good but I can say with absolute confidence that is not stuff like this that will build the next generation to defend liberty. We need to teach them the Constitution and the Founders’ original intent. If we do not – this cycle will repeat!

        The US Department of Education and it minions in the States is pure mind numbing propaganda. Romney has to stand up and break government control of our schools and universities.

        • I’m 59 years old and I didn’t go to college until late in life, but I have to tell that I never remember the Constitution being taught in school. Is it in the curriculum today? It appears that the liberal public schools have brain washed these children and continue to do so. You are right, parents will ultimately have to take a stand. Maybe sooner rather than later. You’ve made a start. Keep up the good fight!!!!!

          • cal40gal

            I am 67 years old, and brother, did we ever learn the Constitution!
            Had to study it for a semester, and pass a test for Jr. High.
            Had to study it and pass a test to graduate High School.
            Ditto for College – had to know it and pass the test.

            Those days are long gone, and unfortunately, so is our Constitution – at least the one that used to be the ‘real one’, not the one that is cherry-picked these days.

    • cabensg

      Since their totally clueless about what does or doesn’t improve your life via the Government this is how they have to be appealed to. Very, very sad that so many could be so poorly educated and informed as to even think Obama would be a good president. The “American Idol” culture is alive and well even in politics.

  • WordsFailMe

    IN 2008 you voted for a lie. It was a lie originally told to you by your weak, conformist parents and socialist do-gooder, tree-hugging, pillars of tolerance teachers, It was a lie you learned by rote and it was a lie that you told to yourself, over and over.

    The lie was that your country was wrong in its treatment of (fill in the blank.) and somehow YOU were responsible for fixing it. And you believed it and you still believe it.

    You have not awakened, children. You have just been disappointed and until you actually suffer the consequences of your choices, you will soon return the the trough of “human kindness” for another mouthful.

    • SPELL9

      Don’t try to blame the parents. Actually, do a study. I am sure that many American parents were surprised by their voting offspring’s views. NOW, it has been proven what a liar the Hope and Change President has been. I, for one, are a Parent praying that the Young Voters learn the TRUTH.

    • AlabamaPatriot2

      After 2 years of searching, now you’ve finally found a job. You’ve gotten an apartment. And when that first paycheck comes, you “hope” you can make ends meet, after you realize that about 30% of your pay has been confiscated by various agencies. Something else to hope for.

      • sDee

        Payroll deductions was a socialist stroke of genius.

        If citizens had to write a big honkin’ account draining check every April – the reality of this bloated parasitic government would hit like a ton of bricks.

        • WordsFailMe

          Second biggest scam was allowing government agencies to withhold union dues from paychecks.

          That agreement made by fed (et al) agencies with public unions should be made illegal. All union dues paid by government workers should be paid by private check from the member to that union.

          • Nukeman60

            …allowing government agencies to withhold union dues from paychecks…‘ – WFM

            That’s being turned around, starting with the recall election in Wisconsin. Once people see how many union workers decided to not give to the unions when given a choice (an actual choice), they will want the same thing for themselves.

            I truly believe the age of Union control is fast becoming extinct.

        • jenman3

          Or every quarter like small business owners!

      • Orangeone

        Just wait until they get slapped with the ObamaCare taxes. Then the message will be clear and they will suffer the consequences of what they voted for.

    • sDee

      You have not awakened, children. You have just been disappointed and until you actually suffer the consequences of your choices, you will soon return the the trough of “social justice” for another mouthful.

      So true Words. The battle for the minds of our youth has only just begun. The progressives’ grip on education is terminal.

  • Rshill7

    A goodun’ ! My lovely wife had this plastered all over Facebook within 5 minutes of it being put here by the Scoop. When I said did you see that new ad, she said, yeah I put it up on Facebook already.

    Our Libyan Ambassador was a “bump in the road”, and Netanyahu is “noise”?

    Americans are going to noisily create another bump amidst the Chicago potholes.

    • poljunkie

      I still cant believe the “bump in the road” thing. How totally rude and arrogant. As Obama drives his bus over our Ambassador and the Marines that were murdered in Libya, we wont forget. Hopefully others wont as well. And will vote that tick out.

      • Orangeone

        Certainly hope the surviving family members and the survivor at Walter Reed get ahold of the Romney campaign and do a nationwide TV ad about their family members being a ‘bump in the road”.

  • Good Ad…I like the ethnic mix and the I voted for you in 2008 but I cannot vote for 4 more years of this. I liked the girl referencing having to move back in with her parents. The young worrying about the future is a KEY and PIVOTAL thought to install into the young. Univision is the only network that challenged Obama and once again off that Teleprompter Unplugged is the REAL OBAMA!!! The Marxist loves the Power and the change he referenced 4 years ago was America to Amerika!!!

    Great ad…hope it can have great exposure!

    • poljunkie

      For many twenty somethings, having to move back home to your parents is a death sentence. Many will do almost anything before that. HA.

      • WordsFailMe

        Except join the armed services, I suspect…

        • sDee

          UhOh – did Presidente Hussein promise them that they can wear blue helmets? 😉

    • cabensg

      I disagree totally that it’s a good ad. There was not one fact stated as to why Obama is a failure. It was all about mistaken fantasy feelings of hope and change. It should work perfectly.

  • Goldni007

    So many people duped. So little time (and money) left.
    Thanks dumbasses of America. Thanks alot.

    • WordsFailMe


    • Orangeone

      They were stupid young people that couldn’t do even a little bit of research and we the hard working adults and business owners suffer the consequences of their ignorance.

  • 1217Chic

    This phoney made a dummy out of a lot of young people in 08…..Glad to see that they’re waking up and deciding it’s time for him to go……

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Way to highlight the Odministration’s “War on Honesty.”

  • Rshill7

    We are already engaged in another revolution. It’s a non-shooting revolution, relatively speaking. Oh we’ve had some left-wing attacks, shots and plans, thwarted and otherwise, but this one is ideological and political. If we can win this one, the powder can stay dry. If we can win this one, we can get this ship back on course…

    “Junior officers, clap this fraud in irons and billet him in the brig. Full right rudder, and full speed ahead.”

  • Yazz55

    I think this is a good start. But I’d like to see it be sharper & hit harder.

  • Beautiful!

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    Just sent this to my daughter….at college… to begin circulating this on facebook and elsewhere. 🙂

    Thanks Scoop!

  • Kordane

    Can someone tell me exactly how you “vote for hope”. I never quite understood that piece of illogic.

    The same people who said “you can’t wage a war on terrorism, because terrorism is a tactic”, are the same people saying “vote for hope”, even though hope is an emotion.

    • sDee

      That caught my ear too. Very odd. Very Obamaesq.

    • poljunkie

      I ‘ll get you Demi Moores phone number.

    • cabensg

      This is where we are. Facts and logic have no place in our psyche anymore. It’s all about feelings.

      Acting truthfully using common sense and logic sometimes mean discipline even sacrifice, qualities that more times than not must be taught.

  • sjmom

    Good ad and great to see the young, in spite of the liberal academia, have good common sense. My son, who told me a few years ago he is a moderate, has now joined his parents’ ranks as someone who disdains the liberal hype. In medical sales he has seen firsthand what Obamacare is doing and will do. Like I said, experience teaches what academia cannot; the reality of living in today’s world. His parents have now become smarter than we have ever been before. Wait until he has kids because we’ll be geniuses LOL.

    • sDee

      Many in our family works in healthcare provider and equipment. I can confirn what you say – we all are feeling the effects of the government take over – Romneykare and Obamakare.

      Workers in free market companies doing business in anything related to healthcare are all going to start feeling the leash tighten.

      Next in the food chain are healthcare consumers. The people of America have no freakin’ idea what is coming None!

    • sDee

      Electronic Heath Records (EHRs) were mandated by the Central Government (starting under Bush2). They came with all sort of glittering generalities but the real government objective was to control us and out doctors via our medical data.

      As with all government takeovers, it is being crushed by enormous complexity, cronyism, and it own bureaucratic weight.


  • “yes we can” – No we can’t!
    Hope – Hype
    Change – Chains

    What’s up with that?
    Unemployment is UP!
    Foodstamps usage is UP!
    Welfare spending is UP!
    Gas Prices are UP!

    In language NObama would understand: That ain’t cool bro!

    If you are no better off than you were 4 years ago and if you want to be better off in 4 years than you are now. The answer is simple. Vote for Change. Vote Romney and put a President and not a pResident back in the Whitehouse in 2013!

    • marketcomp

      Right On, White Wolf! I love it when we slap him with facts!

      • Facts to a Liberal are like a Crucifix to a Vampire! And we need to hammer home those facts right into the heart of that Vampire until that vampire is dead!

        • marketcomp

          Absolutely! We are the wooden stakes, my friend!

    • Orangeone

      Hey WW, been missing your excellent posts!

    • PovrlaChasse

      Obama, the guy who ran on “Hope and Change” now says that there is no “Hope” that he can “Change” anything as President?

      I “Hope” for “Change”. I “Hope” Obama is relieved of his ‘burden’ that is stopping him from doing anything next year.

  • KM


  • They should also have mentioned that roughly 50% of all college graduates can’t find a job, or at least one they majored in. Think about that. After spending four years and countless thousands of dollars, not to mention student loans that will almost never go away, you can’t even find a job. “Yes we can” has turned into “I don’t think so.” If any college-age kids don’t see that a continuation of Obama’s economic policies will only mean an even darker future for them, then they really need to go back to school and take some more basic economics courses. But, they don’t even need to do that. All they have to do is check the Want Ads to see that there are no jobs out there, and who’s responsible for that.

  • Nukeman60

    The hard truth cannot be hidden. Politicians like to bamboozle the populace, and Obama is the biggest bamboozler of all time. But when reality is staring these young people in the face, no amount of trickery or deception can alter there viewpoint.

    That’s what makes this ad so great. Many who voted in ’08 for ‘Hope’ realise that they must survive in a world that is not kind to them, and Obama made it less kind in his four years in office. Not a pretty picture for many, so now the vote in ’12 will truly be for ‘change’.

  • anneinarkansas

    Fabulous Ad….Young people and the elderly may be the two groups who defeat this Fraud!

  • wales777

    Ouch! They should edit this for tv. The rubes who still watch tv need to see it.

  • Rshill7

    In so many instances, I believe that college has actually dumbed these kids down. Reality is wising them back up.

  • HoundOfDoom

    Great ad, needs to be seen by all young voters. Is there anyone that voted for McCain/Palin in the last election that’s switching their votes to Hussien? I mean anyone that’s not a lying Democrat plant.

  • OldmanRick

    Send this ad to everyone you know. Post it on Facebook, etc. Make it go viral.

  • right on. anytime i have a chance to talk with a young voter, i point out to them that this president’s disastrous decisions have screwed their financial future. and if they care about their choices in a free market society, vote him out.

    • kong1967

      Do they listen? I try talking politics with my 21 year old daughter but all I get is a deaf ear. She doesn’t care. She doesn’t support Obama or go against him.

      • Orangeone

        Kong, there is a great book called Shame you should give to your daughter. It was published in the UK and talks of the ramifications of Sharia law. It was written by a woman who experienced it up close and personal.

        • kong1967

          I could try, but I’m tellin’ ya she won’t read it. She’s in the stage of being focused only what directly effects her. Although politics directly effect her and Sharia definitely could, she doesn’t see a direct connection and she ignores it. Basically, she works and lives her life without politics.

          • Orangeone

            Ugh.  She has no idea what liberty is like until it is stripped away from her and she becomes property of a Muslim man.  I fear for her generation.
            There was a 60 minutes segment with the author replayed not long ago, let me see if I can find you a link.

      • cabensg

        If she’s not voting it doesn’t matter. When I was much younger and didn’t follow politics I also had the sense not to vote. The insistence from the press that everyone vote is actually part of the problem. What good is a large voter turnout if the people voting don’t have a clue or care about what will be the result.

        • kong1967

          I agree. I tried telling her to go vote for Romney and she said no because it wouldn’t be her vote and it wouldn’t be fair because she doesn’t know what’s going on politically.

          This is why “get out the vote” drives need to be declared illegal. The left goes out seeking the uninformed vote and it’s appalling.

  • kamiller42

    Oh no! The Romney campaign left off the “I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message.” The liberals will have a fit.

  • Joachim14_1a

    So if Obama believes he can’t change Washington from the inside, why does he want to stay there? (I know, this is a rhetorical question.)

    • kong1967

      Rhetorical, yes…but it makes a good point. Maybe he should go back to community organizing where he can shake down banks and politicians for money to build parks over-run by drug dealers. Don’t forget the people without jobs that need loans to buy houses.

      On second thought, I don’t want him doing that, either.

      • WinMissouri

        Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson have those positions filled, perhaps they need a guy to read from the teleprompter for their presentations.

        • kong1967

          Lol, it’s the only thing he’s good at, besides lying.

  • kong1967

    That is the most effective type of ad you can have. Real people.

    Of course, the left has these ads too, and they make the people up. For example, the family that said they couldn’t afford health insurance for their kids. Investigation showed they had a warehouse and an extravagant home. The ad was a lie.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Good ad. So sad that these people were hosed like this.

    We told you so.

  • tvlgds

    Fantastic! We know they’re not alone and more people need to speak out!

  • BHliberty

    That was great! Appealing to the youth vote is what Mitt Romney should be doing! Hope this gets aired in college towns nationwide!

    My hunch is that there will be a lower voter turnout in that base (age 18-34) compared to 2008. This will significantly hurt the incumbent!

  • Emma_Goldman

    You do realize those are all actors?

    • DebbyX

      And your point would be?

      Obumer voters would NEVER pitch an ad for Romney! Even if it was a paying gig. They’re already getting their weekly check for the government, so they don’t need a legit paycheck!

  • freenca

    Now, That’s an ad that I CAN GET BEHIND!!! Play often, in all markets, red, blue and purple states!!

  • DebbyX

    I guess for most of the young people in this Country to see this, it will have to be aired just before American Idol comes on.

  • I worked at a University Financial Aid office for the summer semester and learned American Students are getting cut off of Federal Grants to make room for the ” Dreamers”. When i went back found out this was a fact, when into affect January and 1800 students were let hanging with not enough money to cover the cost of tuition,etc. They dropped out.

  • Martin2717

    I can do without the girl speaking spanish a little bit here. The only turnoff about this ad.

  • Suzyqpie

    Fed govt Student loans are redistribution of wealth, from the students earning of tomorrow, to academia of today. Student loans are today exempt from discharge in bankruptcy. Only so a democrat of the future in need of votes, can executive it out.

  • gothicreader

    LOL. That was a humdinger of an ad!

  • cabensg

    This should certainly appeal to them since it’s a slogan based Ad. They fell for yes we can so now that he couldn’t well bye, bye. This is so superficial as to be laughable but then so was their vote for Obama in the first place. It’s a pathetic appeal to an already stupid voting block who apparently know nothing that isn’t tweeted or text-ed to them by their peers. Let’s hope it works their education sure hasn’t.
