AARP objects to Obama invoking group's support during debate
fox news ^ | 10/4/2012 | fox news

The AARP, which put itself in the middle of the health care debate by endorsing ObamaCare, now is telling President Obama to keep the group out of his political talking points.

The nation's leading senior advocacy organization objected after the president during Wednesday's debate twice mentioned the AARP while defending his health care plan and attacking Mitt Romney's plans for Medicare. The AARP posted a blog saying that while the group is "grateful" the candidates had a "robust" debate on health care, the organization is not aligned with either candidate.

"While we respect the rights of each campaign to make its case to voters, AARP has never consented to the use of its name by any candidate or political campaign. AARP is a nonpartisan organization and we do not endorse political candidates nor coordinate with any candidate or political party," the group said.

AARP sees the handwriting on the wall. They are worried they aligned themselves with the loser. I hope AARP will go down in flames just like Obama.

Yep. and they sold out their base to hook themselves to “a star”. I tore up my card and cancelled my membership. I hope everyone does the same. There is a conservative group for seniors, AMAC, I am thinking of joining.

AARP wants it both ways.

WITH Obama when he’s popular and NOT WITH Obama when his failings are in the full glare of the MSM!!

Nice.

‘Not aligned with either candidate”???

Who was it that read all of Obamacare & announced here on FR that AARP will get paid a Billion over 10 years for it’s support of Obacare???

I don’t trust one single thing that AARP supports.

“I hope AARP will go down in flames just like Obama.”

I agree. AARP was more than willing to promote Obamacare to the senior population in order that their organization can put themselves in a position to make billions off of their medicare suppliment insurance.

They chose to lie down with dogs, and now they are trying to hide the fleas they picked up.

"The AARP, which put itself in the middle of the health care debate by endorsing ObamaCare, now is telling President Obama to keep the group out of his political talking points."

That's a laugh, AARP has been in Obama's back pocket since day one. AARP stabbed all of their clients in the back and sold them all out for Obam-deathcares 30 pieces of silver (actually billions of dollars in new supplemental insurance premiums they would receiver from their unsuspecting elderly clients to cover what Obama-deathcare will no longer cover that Medicare used to).

AARP used everything in its power to promote and get Obama-deathcare passed. After it was, AARP immediately applied for and received a total EXCEPTION from the entire Obama-deathcare mandate!

They benefit from the Obama-deathcare exemption and from the billions of dollars they will make off of the backs of their members from Obama-deathcare and now all of a sudden they are telling Obama: "Don't you dare use our gleaming endorsement of Obama-deathcare in you political talking points."

AARP = Sleazy, liberal company manipulating the fears and needs of the elderly for their fun and profit. I pray they lose customers by the millions.

I was listening on the radio last night while driving. The first time he mentioned them I thought I heard him say it as, A_R_P leaving out the 2nd A. Did anyone else notice that or was it just me?

Try doing what I do with those postage paid envelopes — fill the envelope with lunch meat. By the time it gets back to them it will be verrrrrry ripe.

Just called AARP and told them they were married to obama. Too late to divorce him this close to the election.

AARP is a nonpartisan organization . . .

Evidently we're not the only ones who opted out of their wonderful membership plans.

Non-partisan, my ass. The American Association of Greedy Geezers is about as left wing as they come. Look at their recent shenanigans in Florida and long-standing history of supporting liberal buttboys.

AARP was a big promoter of ObamaCare. The Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) was formed as an alternative to AARP. So far AMAC has taken quite a chunk of AARP’s business [membership] because they are the conservative alternative to AARP.
