The transformation of a political campaign organization, Obama for America, into a political action organization, Organizing for America, is really creepy and should be illegal. So Michelle O announces it in a video, Obama endorses it with an email and yet it is supposed to follow the IRS rules, of a 501(c)4 organization. From breitbart.com, http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/01/18/Obama-campaign-becomes-lobbying-group,
“a 501(c)4 organization can have lobbying on legislation as its primary purpose, “The promotion of social welfare does not include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office.”
So if it can lobby for legislation but can’t participate in campaigns, how can it change it’s spots in just over 2 months after the election? Shouldn’t there be a 6-month time-out period from campaigning to lobbying and didn’t O promise to shut the door on lobbyists? I know the answer. From the same article on breitbart.com, per Obama, “I’m so excited to see what you all do next — and so grateful to be part of it.” Can he be a part of it legally?
It seems this is what Obama meant as his permanent civil army*, an army of activists to push through his agenda while reducing Congress to rubble if it gets in his way. This is getting scary folks and we have to counter-act his army of thugs. I proposed, “Americans for Saving Americans” and hope that someone with influence will initiate such a counter-lobby (see http://www.redstate.com/checkmate2012/2013/01/18/accountability-dodgeball-not-a-game-for-weaklings-or-whiners/ ).
