If there is one thing nice we can say about (NMP) Obama, it’s that he runs an excellent campaign apparatus. Governance? Respect for Americans who disagree with him? Foreign relations? Adherence to the Constitution? Not so much. Campaigning and ginning up crazies to get out there? Yes. And lying liar Stephanie Cutter tells us about it in video at Real Clear Politics
STEPHANIE CUTTER: President Obama provides the leadership here, and he said the American people have to speak up and make their voices heard in this debate. Just like the NRA is doing with there membership. And President Obama’s network across this country, grassroots individuals, who organize, volunteered with their time to get the president reelected are much more powerful than the NRA lobby.
And I think that you can expect to see that network activated, very soon. And for good reason. We need to pass commonsense legislation to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and those who shouldn’t be carrying guns. That’s the commonsense nature of this.
So instead of a national discussion, we’ll see a typical Obama campaign of fear and demonization, of abusing and smearing the NRA and Americans who support that pesky 2nd Amendment, not to mention the 4th, 5th, and 9th.
In fact, Obama looks to continue the neverending campaign for everything
In an unprecedented move, President Barack Obama’s vaunted political organization is being turned into a nonprofit group — funded in part by corporate money — to mobilize support behind the president’s second-term agenda.
Democratic officials familiar with the plan said Thursday the tax-exempt organization will be called Organizing for Action and seek to harness the energy of the president’s re-election campaign for future legislative fights. Officials said the group will be separate from the Democratic National Committee and advocate on key policy issues such as gun control and immigration, train future leaders and devote attention to local issues around the nation.
Perhaps Ted Cruz is correct that Obama is “drunk on power.” It’d be nice if he got his facts straight, such as his mule fritters assertion about 40% not obtaining a background check to purchase a handgun, but facts matter little when Obama is reaching for an issue and Americans to abuse.
