AARP: Not Backing Any Presidential Candidates
NewsMax ^ | 10/05/2012

Posted on 10/05/2012 11:49:21 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

AARP is reminding voters that it's not endorsing any candidates after President Barack Obama cited the group in the first presidential debate.

Obama mentioned the lobbying organization for seniors twice Wednesday in discussing Medicare and Social Security. He noted that AARP supports his health care law and opposes the voucher-like program Republican Mitt Romney has proposed for Medicare in the future.

AARP's senior vice president, John Hishta, says AARP is nonpartisan and has never consented to the use of its name by any campaign or political group and doesn't take sides in political races.

I had my car in for service on Wednesday morning last week and picked up the AARP magazine in the waiting room. They had a voters guide in the magazine. It had 3 columns in it. Column 1 was AARP’s take on the issues. Column 2 had Obama’s response and column 3 had Romney’s. Columns 1 and 2 looked virtually the same and column 2 was written in 1st person. Column 3 looked like it had been researched and written by AARP (or someone in the Obama campaign). One could draw their own conclusion about who AARP supported.

Why, hell, Obambi gave them a waiver for their company on the crappy Obama-Health care . . . don’t they owe him a big favor? Aren’t they his lapdog?

AARP disgusts me . . . nothing but a lapdog organization, and now I guess they’re afraid that Obozo is so hated in America, that they might get bad publicity. Whores!

I always return the AARP membership and insurance solicitations in their prepaid envelopes with religious tracks, dish network ads and a little note that I will join when the repudiate their endorsement of the Food Stamp President and Obamacare. They keep sending them and I keep sending them back. I make sure the envelopes are well filled and overweight and oversize so that they have to pay more.

Tells you how unpopular Obama really is. The Union/Media cheering squad can’t even hide how we “feel”out here. Every time I hear any B.S news my blood boils before I can hit mute.

Their support of Obama over the past years has cost them members. They’ve lost tens of thousands and continue to slide, and although it probably perturbs them to distance themselves from the great One, they really don’t have much of a choice.

They certainly have chutzpah. AARP will not get one thin dime of my money ever.

Someone a couple of days ago suggested that you can mark refused on AARP mailings. Refused sounds like it might cost them more. Before I was sending the docs back folded up in their postage paid envelope with Not interested marked on them.

42 million dues paying members.
One of the largest organizations (of any type) in the USA.
And a Democrat stealth lobby.

It’s too late, AARP. I would not buy any of your “stuff” if it was the last “stuff” available. Traitors.
