Obama Seemed Perfect But Women Are Feeling Cheated

(WASHINGTON D.C.) –, a project of the Independent Women’s Voice, today released a 30-second web video, “Boyfriend,” ahead of President Obama’s convention speech.

Women, who four years ago overwhelmingly supported candidate Obama based on his promise of a robust economic recovery and a new tone in Washington, are feeling a bit cheated.

For the first time this year President Obama is going through a rough patch with women, leaving him upside down on favorability rankings, with a majority (50%) of women voters, single and married alike, viewing him unfavorable while only 46% find him favorably.

Despite his dubious efforts to win women over, his policies have resulted in the real war on women: chronic unemployment, rising cost of living and a less-than thrilling economic recovery.

Perhaps if Obama learns some basic economics and implements policies to turn the relationship and our country around, women will give him another chance?

Video Script:

Melissa: I was so excited at first
Mary: I know
Melissa: He seemed so perfect
Mary: They always do
Melissa: And I could listen to him talk for hours
Mary: Did he ever do more than talk?
Melissa: I wanted to believe him.. I trusted him
Mary: Melissa.. we all did
Melissa: I’m tired of waiting for him to get his act together. It’s been almost four years
Mary: You can’t change him
Melissa: He always has an excuse for everything.. there’s always somebody else to blame
Mary: You can’t live on excuses
Melissa: Why do I always fall for guys like this?
Mary: You know you deserve better is a project of the Independent Women’s Voice focused on advocating a better policy direction for the future of our country.
