The shocking ad from the Obama campaign that compares voting to sex and first-time voting to losing one’s virginity is a copycat of an ad released during a Russian election campaign by Vladimir Putin. The Putin ad was also intended to appeal to younger voters based on sexual themes.

In the Obama campaign ad, left-wing actress Lena Dunham says, “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy.” Later, the view learns she is talking about voting and not sex.

But the Washington Examiner points out today that the Obama ad is remarkably similar to the Putin ad, which has a fortune teller promising a young woman that she will eventually find the man of her dreams (Putin).

The Obama version is drawing condemnation from voters across the Internet, with most finding it repulsive and disgusting.

Below is a sample of some of the reaction from pro-life advocates on the LifeNews Facebook page:

Wayne Springer It is the left’s mentality!!

Terri Parker Bright It is an awful ad. He should be ashamed of himself!

Jeannette Vierma-Golindano Shame on you, Obama! You need to go!
Linda King This is unbelievable! I doubted the claim until I watched it myself! How disgusting!
Paul Edwards Yeah — mainly, if you vote for Obama, you’ll probably regret it for years to come.
Patrick Tharp I weep for the future, if this is it. Amazingly bad taste on the part of the Obama campaign. All partisan rhetoric aside, this is really really bad.
LaRane Peeler Dillinger Disgusting. Sick. If any PARENT were undecided before, he/she should not be now.
