Skip to comments.Is Obama Awakening His Base?
Posted on 03/09/2009 5:33:43 PM PDT by anniegetyourgun
Weeks ago, I obsessed on a political point: would President Barack Obama mobilize his millions of voters to apply political pressure on Washington to pass his policy initiatives. At that time, the stimulus package was the top item on his agenda, and the White House was not doing much to activate the Obama millions to boost support for the legislation in Congress. As the stimulus fight proceeded, Organizing for America, the spin-off of the Obama presidential campaign, did zap out an email to its list of 13 million and asked those supporters to hold house parties to discuss the recovery package. But discussing something is not quite the same as fighting for it.

Only way to get these Obama voters fired up would be a massive bailout for them to pay their cable bill and get dad out of jail.
Most of them don't know who dad is.
Don’t forget vouchers for ciggs...
Of course he will probably create an Obama brand...
Oh my God...seriously...his base.
They were convinced they were getting big screens and bigger free money checks;
Seriously, his base — all this politics stuff is just putting them to sleep — they are ready for the money and bling from the Gub-ment;
Now why would this be necessary? Aren’t we all told daily how much he is loved and revered?
His bas awakening can only mean ACORN types. This could get really ugly quick. They are all about freebies for their loyalty.
We are looking at a nasty uphill fight.
Awakening. Perfect word. They’ve been sound asleep from the beginning. I do not think he wants them to wake up.
Only a "community organizer" could believe he can rub raw the resentments of the privileged class...dumb shitz.
I was getting ready to prepare a really good dinner.
Now I’m borderline past nausea.
This is indeed the question. And the answer is because he does not have enough votes to pass the legislation. Harry&Nancy are calling for help.
The Blue Dog Demos realize that they are hitched to the Obambi wagon and it is spiraling out of control down a steep hill. They are concluding that Obambi has ruined his Presidency in 7 short weeks and they want off the ride.
But it is too late IMO, the confidence lost since November cannot be easily restored. What we need of course are massive tax holidays and cuts, but this will never happen. The producers are hunkering down, we are seriously spooked and there is not much Obambi can do to unspook the small businessman right now.
I went to a dinner party Saturday night with some friends who were die hard Obambi supporters, they just could not wait for the inauguration. They never mentioned his name ...
There will be another 2.5 million jobs lost by the end of the year. In June when they know the 2nd quarter GDP is tanked they will write every household a check for $5,000 and saddle our kids with another trillion in debt. Watch him rally these losers, the damage is done and little can change it now.
I don’t know what Commie Corn is complaining about. Hasn’t Obama got everything he has hoped for from the Politburo?
Does his base have a 401k, business, job, illness or eat food? If so, they may soon be next to you and me at the Tea Party!!
Oh, the MSM will run video of those protests 24/7 to hope to boost the appearance of support for the Obamamessiah and the Corruptocrats. Hmmmm...I wonder if they will have giant papier-mache puppets of Rush at them....
Unfortunately for them it will have quite the opposite effect. There is nothing like video of a bunch of hippies, “professional students”, “community activists”, race/ethnic warriors and the other dregs from the fever swamps of the “reality-based community” ralllying for their gubmint handouts to really pi** people off. It will be the equivalent of tossing a supertanker full of gasoline on a fire.
The Corruptocrats, the 0bamamesiah and the rest of the ‘reality-based community” are so clueless. It is probably because they know nothing about the people of this country. In fact they are quite afraid of us. They think they are in control, but they are not.
