There You Go — Because Obama! by The Elephant's Child

They Held a Big Rally for Climate Change and Nobody Came! by The Elephant's Child

The polls have been quite clear. People are concerned about jobs, unemployment, the economy, and a long list of things, Right at the bottom is always climate. In the midst of nationwide concern about administration scandals, the IRS, the NSA surveillance, Obama was out asking the people to care about the climate and saving mother earth.

While the Obamas were enjoying a holiday at Martha’s Vineyard, Organizing for Action, the former Obama campaign group morphed into a nonprofit advocacy group planned a “Climate Change Day of Action Rally“in Washington DC, but  it rained in Georgetown and nobody came. Wit an embarrassing zero turnout, the event page disappeared.

There is something particularly amusing when people whose deepest concern is supposedly the climate of the earth, refuse to turn out in a little rain. Perhaps they can fix the climate so all days are equal and we don’t have to worry about going out in the rain, except on government preferred days.



The Permanent Neverending Campaign. by The Elephant's Child

President Obama is out on the campaign trail today to launch a public relations campaign to push the White House agenda. Let me repeat that— the campaign trail. Today he was in Asheville, North Carolina, at the Linamar Corporation.

Supposedly the campaign is over and now is the time for governing, but Obama is most comfortable campaigning. He will be aided and abetted by his campaign organization which has now morphed into a permanent “unrelated” 501(c)4 organization  called “Organizing for Action”, which began last night with SOTU watching parties.

Obama’s goal is not really to promote his agenda, he doesn’t really have an agenda. His goal is to “continue the neverending attempt to paint his political opponents as morally bankrupt, as obstructionist roadblocks to his glorious agenda.” Community organizing is what Obama knows, and what he does. And he will influence minds. It’s not that hard, we do have low-information voters.
