Obama recruits an army of community organizers to ensure his reelection
IBD ^ | 4/24/2012 | Andrew Malcolm

President Obama's election campaign is recruiting an army of determined community organizers to walk the streets of the nation's cities this summer and autumn in the footsteps of a young Chicago community organizer named Barack Obama.

Recruits would gather other volunteers, register new voters, run phone banks and campaign events and knock on millions of doors to track voters' preferences and encourage supporters of the president's reelection.

The massive, cross-country organization is called Obama Fellowships. It involves many thousands of unpaid volunteers, both full- and part-time with separate fellowships for the summer and the fall leading up to the Nov. 6 presidential election.

The fellows' duties will include recruiting and training thousands of other volunteers to penetrate neighborhoods, run phone banks, organize and monitor campaign events and go door-to-door talking with voters, soliciting support for the Democrat and noting residents' political sympathies.

In a recent plea sent to millions of existing Obama supporters, Michelle Obama says: "I'm writing because Barack needs you out there this summer."

I hope they "get in people's faces."

That won't play well this time around.

Recruits would gather names and addresses for ballots,and revers names to addresses for double votes.
Let’s not forget the headstone names too.

There was a large, burly black man with a laptop sitting there glaring at each of us as we entered the polling place this morning (and the area where I live is about 0.001% Black). Have never seen him before in all my prior trips to this polling place. Obviously from some Community Organizer group out there sent to keep an eye on Pennsylvania’s new Voter ID law (i.e. stir-up some sort of trouble that can be used to challenge it)

lengthy application and mini-essays requirement

“OBAMA FELLOWSHIPS”

There is a box suggesting students ask their colleges if they could obtain course credits for their unpaid summer- and fall-long political organizing for the Democrat.

Another resume box hints that some kind of unspecified paid employment might be available for Obama volunteers after their fellowship is completed.

King Obama and his communists party are organized. He can win and not much of an counter organization in the horizon.

Zippy won’t have problems getting volunteers. He built that into his economic policy, i.e. “College Graduates Can’t Find No Work” program. Lots of young folks, unable to find work will flock to help out while doing nothing about their futures.

The White House directed ACORN, unions and other groups to canvas the entire country on a weekend in March 2009 in support of Tax-and-Cap, ObamaCare and big government. The event fizzled out when most “volunteers” didn't show up.

Nice little round-up list, no?

That would be MOST of me.

It is coming anyway. Might as well go to the mat now, when there is at least a portion of the once great United States still left.

I think the first thing we are going to have to teach them in this coming ‘war’ is some basic math... 78% > 12%

What?

You mean the stalwart, he-men statesmen in the Republican Party are not going to raise total Hell over still MORE nation-destroying fraud?

I expect this regime to be out in the open and “in your face” about voter fraud this time.

Not to worry. GOP organizers, grass root conservative supporters, and Tea Party activists will be coming out in enthusiastic droves to support Romney and get out the vote. Oh, wait...
