Ad targets Obama fans who oppose marriage equality


A new ad from American Values PAC, which is connected to evangelical leader Gary Bauer according to Politicker, attempts to convince Obama supporters who oppose same-sex marriage to support the Romney-Ryan ticket. Some observations about the ad…

“Hey, honey — how are ya?”
The husband waited until after he prepared the cup of coffee to ask his wife how she’s doing. We can only assume that the husband and wife spent the preceding minute or two in the kitchen in complete silence, demonstrating just how much President Obama’s support for marriage equality has ruined this couple’s marriage.

Any directors out there want to explain this shot? Does the ad not work unless we know the coffee mug landed safely?

“Fine, I guess.”
The wife doesn’t thank her husband for making her coffee. No time for thank yous. Not with this gay marriage thing threatening her way of life.

“Obama is trying to force gay marriage on this country.”
That’s a stretch. President Obama supports marriage equality, though has yet to introduce legislation to legalize same-sex marriage. If anyone is attempting “to force” a definition of marriage on this country, that would be the presidential candidate backing the federal amendment.

Also, President Obama announced his support for marriage equality in May. The wife is just learning about Obama’s position now? Maybe she didn’t thank her husband for delivering the coffee because she’s mad that he just got around to delivering her MAY’S NEWSPAPER.

“What can we do?”
She has no idea what to do. She can’t think of one way to help remove President Obama from office. Not one. She needs ideas. And if anyone can deliver on an idea to help remove President Obama from office, it’s the guy who silently and thanklessly delivers her coffee in the morning.

“We can vote…”
Oh yeah. Voting. Why didn’t she think of that? I mean, she remembered voting for Obama, but are you even allowed to vote twice?

The ad is appearing on televisions in North Carolina, where, in May, 61 percent of voters backed an amendment to North Carolina’s constitution that banned same-sex marriage. A recent Pew poll shows that 29% of Democrats oppose legalizing same-sex marriage.

Do you think a voter who backed President Obama in 2008 will back Mitt Romney in 2012 because of President Obama’s position on same-sex marriage? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
