White House Seeking to Organize Americans on Obama’s Behalf

Quote:White House Seeking to Organize Americans on Obama’s Behalf
by KEITH KOFFLER on NOVEMBER 12, 2012, 10:05 AM
The White House is pulling a tactic out of its campaign playbook – and President Obama’s own community organizing past – using the organs of government to enlist average Americans to help Obama advocate for his priorities.

In an email sent to people who signed up to receive official updates from the White House, recipients are told to forward the message to their friends, asking them to help promote what is in effect White House propaganda. The White House email list, which government officials began compiling earlier in Obama’s term, is separate from the famed Obama campaign email list, but recipients are nonetheless being asked to engage in partisan political activity.

The email, sent out Friday, presents a video of Obama in the East Room earlier the same day making his case as negotiations with Republicans are set to begin on the budget stalemate that could lead to massive spending cuts known as “the fiscal cliff.”

The unsigned missive asserts:

Now you have a choice to make. This debate can either stay trapped in Washington DC, or you can make sure your friends and neighbors participate. You’ve shown that getting people outside of Washington involved shifts the conversation in favor of the middle-class priorities.

As the President just said, let’s get to work.


Stay Connected

The message carries a veneer of nonpartisanship, asking people “no matter where you stand” to share the video with others, “no matter their political background.”

But the attempt to use the government to organize a mass campaign with a partisan message benefitting the president is obvious. The email states:

The President (in the video) lays out a clear strategy to move the country forward — past the dysfunction and into a future built on a strong middle class.

What’s more, the effort to get people to act regardless of their political affiliation can serve to broaden Obama’s base.

The email is part of a larger campaign by Obama to gin up support outside the Beltway for his position on cutting the deficit. According to several news outlets, Obama will travel outside Washington trying to convince Americans to back him.

Hitler's tactics are becoming more and more obvious.

America is soooo blind. That, and they don't read history.

They'll suck it up like candy.

I was surprised by some of the people I knew during this election cycle. Suffice it to say that I'll most likely do a lot of smiling and nodding and very little talking when they wanna talk politics.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

I would honestly and seriously not be surprised if Obama had a group of "Obama Youth" by the end of this next four years. School kids are already being taught to love Obama and sing songs about him.

I also would not be surprised if there turns out to be some sort of signal or salute for him by the end as well, if quite small or unobtrusive.

And no, I don't wear a tin foil hat.
