No, of course not. Liberals aren't tolerant of people who live different lifestyles. Liberals are tolerant only of a very specific lifestyle, which of course is the liberal lifestyle. It's the same thing as "believing" in Free Speech, (but only when it's speech you agree with).
No, Rock, they're actual college age. :) They are the kids of friends of mine, and two are my god-daughters. I know that at least two of them are regular worshipers (one Catholic, one Jewish), and one is a hunter. So the stereotyping isn't really working, but if it makes you feel better, okay.
Liberal social issues involve promiscuity, homosexuality, drug use, welfare, gimmie free stuff, etc. Essentially, crap that adds nothing to society. Seems to me young voters need to grow up instead.
I'm probably of the demographic that ad was meant to reach: Female, single,urban-ish, socially moderate, etc. And to a degree, you DO have a point. Does the GOP need give on social issues? Hell yes.
But this ad sucked at making that point.
It was patronizing. It made an assumption that all I cared about was 'wimmens issues'. Oh, please. I want more people employed so they'll buy the bullshit items I sell so I can get a bigger commission and do more shit I wanna do.

Frankly, younger voters aren't much of a problem for the GOP. We can turn the economy around(we've done it before), and the best thing that we can offer young voters is a job and a future. When you can offer them that, get back to me.
She perfectly captured the condescension and contempt in the Obama ad.
