Ryan on ‘Julia’ Website: ‘Creepy’,’Demeaning’

Paul Ryan: Obama’s ‘Julia’ Website ‘Creepy’ and ‘Demeaning’

By Justin Sink

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Friday that the Obama campaign’s new website — which uses a fictionalized woman named Julia to illustrate how the president’s policies help female voters — is “creepy” and “demeaning.”

“It suggests that this woman can’t go anywhere in life without Barack Obama’s government-centered society. It’s kind of demeaning to her,” Ryan said during a constituent meeting in Wisconsin, the National Review reports. “She must have him and his big government to depend on to go anywhere in life. It doesn’t say much about his faith in Julia.”
