Enabling identity theft, the Organizing for America way!

Correcting the record on Organizing for America.
(H/T: Hot Air) There’s an assumption here that should be challenged as a matter of course: “We heard story after story from current Organizing for America volunteers about how they were getting disillusioned with Obama because he wasn’t fighting for the public option,” [Progressive Change Campaign Committee flack Adam] Green said. “Obama’s email list may soon become a hollow shell if he does not fight | Read More »
TNR confused why OFA is DOA.
(Via Hot Air Headlines) I mean, really: is this a trick question? Disorganized What happened to Obama’s massive network of grassroots activists? They sold out, is what happened. They sold out and cashed in, which is why the representative of the faction that wanted to make OfA a fully-owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party is enjoying a six-figure salary and the representative of the faction | Read More »
Obama hates the media and wants them all to die in a fire.
Failing that, he’ll just have Organizing for America use them as a fundraising foil. Yes. Foil. Greg Sargent: This has to be the Obama camp’s most direct and premeditated shot at the media yet: His outside political operation just blasted an email to supporters directly faulting the press for falling down on the job of debunking health care “lies.” The email from Organizing for America, | Read More »
I’ll be on the B-Cast at around 5:30 today.
Link here. Mind you, it’s me – so it’ll be about zombies. On the other hand, I might be able to sneak a comment or two in about this OfA desperate rally at the fallback point conference call. Goodness knows it’s not really a subject change. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.

The sputtering of the Obama machine.
That’s the word that the Washington Post used, so don’t blame me (H/T: Glenn Reynolds): Obama’s Machine Sputters in Effort to Push Budget Grass-Roots Campaign Has Little Effect When his post-campaign organization was unveiled in January, Barack Obama vowed that the 13 million-strong grass-roots network built during his presidential campaign would play a “crucial role” in enacting his agenda from the White House.

Obama’s Organizing for America targets… Evan Bayh.
Fresh from their general campaign last Saturday of utterly failing to convincing Congress to do anything, Organizing for America is now engaged in regional spamming of their email lists to go after of individual legislators considered either hostile or insufficiently favorable to the President’s plan to saddle the next three generations with even more crushing, unnecessary debt. This is primarily targeting Republicans: in fact, based | Read More »
