Skip to comments.AARP objects to Obama invoking group's support during debate
Posted on 10/04/2012 10:14:50 AM PDT by tobyhill
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.

I sent this to all of my “independent” friends/family who are of AARP age.
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.
AARP SHOULD'VE NEVER SUPPORTED THE KENYAN BACK IN '08!!!!
Why shouldn’t he? It’s actually about the only shred of truth that’s come out of that turds mouth.

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!!
(Make that several billion $$ short, you sellouts!)
“Barack who? Never heard of the guy.”
Too late !!! ,,,, shame on you ,,, it's not nice to play mean tricks on the old folks .
They ran ads for Obamacare.. they helped him get it passed..
AARP endorses 0bamacare before the reconciliation process and now runs for the tall grass once we know what’s in it .
Too late !!! ,,,, shame on you ,,, it’s not nice to play mean tricks on the old folks .
For the first time the POTUS spoke truth!
‘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.
Every piece of crap I get from AARP lands in the trash,unopened.In future I just might open the stuff and return any postage paid envelope...empty.
“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.
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.
Oops... I meant “supplement.”
