To Tag "Occupy" Camps as "Obamaville" Will Affect 2012 (Vanity)
November 5, 2011 | no dems

Posted on 11/05/2011 8:56:33 AM PDT by no dems

In 1928, Herbert Hoover was elected POTUS with 58.2 percent of the vote and 444 EVs to Al Smith's 87 EVs. During the Great Depression of the 30's, which started during his first, and only, term the encampments of the homeless and unemployed were named: "Hooverville". An empty front pocket pulled out of one's trousers was called the "Hoover Flag". He was decimated in the 1932 Election by FDR garnering only 39.7 percent of the vote.

Some have begun to "tag" these "Occupy" Encampments as "Obamaville". This clever, little ploy needs to pick up some steam in order to identify Obama's failed policies as the enemy of the people, not Capitalism. Then, we'll see how proud Nancy Pelosi and Michael Moore would be to identify with the "movement". It would be politically devastating for President Clueless.

With the Internet, this can be done somehow, just not sure how to go about it.

There isn’t anything that will change the outcome in 2012 for IMO those who would consider voting for 0bama in the first place are just way too stupid to be convinced to change their mind.

I think this is a very accurate description. At least in my town, I went by their encampments and it DEFINITELY looks like a bunch of homeless squatters.

The small business folks you’d think would support them (based on the types of businesses and their backgrounds) === I’ve overheard comments that they don’t support these moochers eithers.

You are right that the new term would be fitting, but I think Occupy is becoming a derogation description on it’s own. Either way, they look like a bunch of losers.

So, are you saying that Obama is going to win in 2012? I know people who voted for Obama in 2008 and now, they wish to hell that they had their vote back; for real.

But, what we want to do is “identify” those “losers” with Obama; blame the destructive, costly actions of this societal scourge on him.

Can you imagine the bedbugs and head lice that are having a picnic in these camps. No bath, hair shampoos, clean clothes - scratch, scratch, scratch, bite, bite, bite.

That is an excellent icon for Obamavilles! There should be one on display at each Obamaville in the U.S. Is someone going to head up that committee? I don’t have time - I have to work for a living.

I've been hearing it for weeks on talk radio.

In a 1930s movie scene (on TCM recently). One depression
displaced person says to another, "They say that prosperity's just
around the corner, but I keep looking. I must be on the wrong
street, because I don't see it."

I can't remember if the dump they were living in was referred to as a Hooverville.

Probably not, given the era.

444 EVs to Al Smith's 87 EVs.

Al Smith was a Catholic and in that era because of his religion he was doomed from the start. The attacks on Mormon Romney are bland compared to what was said about Smith.

What could be done, is that Freepers from different
states,cities, could take pictures and send them into a
thread on Freerepublic and they could be captioned
OBAMAVILLE DENVER, OBAMAVILLE ATLANTA, etc., and spread
from there through other threads & e mails etc.

OBAMAVILLE

Nibb’lin on Soro’s cakes
Watching all the flakes
All of the haters of big banks and big oil
Strumm’in my six string
I don’t know a thing
But I smell poo here in the soil.
Wast’in away again in Obamaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim the big banks are to blame
But I know it’s the Democrats’ fault.
Don’t know the reason
Stayed here all season
Noth’in to show but the stench of the poo.
I saw a young beauty
She was a cutie
Get raped in a tent by a few.
Wast’in away again in Obamaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim the big banks are to blame
Now I think heck it could be the Democrats’ fault.
Threw rocks in some windows
I love how the news shows
We injured the police and they had to crack down.
Well there’s drugs in my tent now
Dig that fire we just set! Wow!
And I’m even getting paid to hang on.
Wast’in away again in Obamaville
Search’in for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim the big banks are to blame
But I know it’s the Democrats’ fault.

I just threw this together this am. Here is the music.

This is a great idea to brand the various Occupy X sites as Obamaville X sites incited by Obama's class warfare and the economic malaise of his anti-business policies.

Together with some variant of Baynative's graphics above, which incorporate the Obama '08 campaign logo, it could become the iconic anti-Obama banner for 2012 much like "Sore-Loserman" was in the 2000 election aftermath.

I like it!

If someone with photoshop talent puts one together, we can all make our own signs and distribute them locally. I’ll be glad to stick a few up in and around Seattle.

Although your right that many are too dense to change their minds, their disillusionment with Obama will lead to apathy on voting day. No “excitement”, no votes.

Let's start sending these around and putting them in threads and comment sections everywhere. We can give them both the branding they've been wanting!

I sending emails to folks I know and posting on with the image info so they can get it printed into signs or bumper stickers at any local Kinko's or whatever shop they have.
