State of the Union

You're great!

keep dreaming cuz it's a nightmare
the internet

Last week, I brought you a "one question survey" from Organizing for Action (OFA, a 501(c)4 prohibited from supporting a specific candidate) that asked what you wanted to hear the president talk about in his state of the union address tonight. OFA e-mailed the "results" (vague, natch), which ought to dispel any reasonable doubt that OFA (formerly known as Obama for America) is little more than an Obama fan club:

Edward —

Before you tune in for the State of the Union at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time, I wanted to report back on what OFA supporters said they wanted to hear in the President's speech tonight. 

The top responses from folks like you: the economy, good-paying jobs for the middle class, health care reform and the benefits millions of Americans are already seeing, immigration reform and where that fight goes from here, and what we're going to do about climate change. 

As President Obama lays out his national agenda tonight, OFA supporters across the country will be watching and gearing up for the months ahead.

There's a lot left to do, and a lot standing in our way—it's going to take all of us pitching in, but I believe we can make serious progress this year. 

Say you're ready for the fight:

Thanks—more soon,

Hopefully in all the bloviating going down tonight, President Obama doesn't forget to pat himself, and his supporters, on the back. He'll certainly explain how there's still "so much" work to do and how those who disagree with him are "standing in the way," even though he's been president for five years now and dissent is part of the fabric of American politics, something he understood before it was his chance to be an imperial president. The rest of America, wisely, seems to be tuning out on what's turning out to be a failed presidency.

  1. Edward–

    Are you better off now than you were one year ago? The answer is clear.

    Orgasms from Action

  2. Thanks heavens the IRS cracked down on those “non-profits” that are actually just partisan fronts!

  3. “Organizing for Action (OFA, a 501(c)4 prohibited from supporting a specific candidate)

    Since it is highly unlikely Obama is going to become a candidate for anything ever again, he must be one of the few people they can legally back.

  4. Jason Collins is a special presidential guest at the SOTU. He recently came out as homosexual, but how gay can he be if he’s in the First Lady’s box?

    1. Huh? Being in the First Lady’s box is very gay.

  5. Oh, for pete’s sake! Is that image for real?

    1. It shows up on 2008 articles, and I’ve seen worse, so I’d say “yes,”

  6. The top responses from folks like you: the economy, good-paying jobs for the middle class, health care reform and the benefits millions of Americans are already seeing, immigration reform and where that fight goes from here, and what we’re going to do about climate change.

    Looks like proggies are looking for their talking points being as not even the PWCfOAA (Professional Water Carriers for Obama Association of America) has given them what they need to feel good about Obamacare other than PEEPLULS GET INSHURENTS, which of course isn’t happening at all like the law intended.

  7. The top responses from folks like you…

    One good think has come out of the Obama administration, a resurgence and re-legitimization of the word folks. I now use it all the time when I want to soft peddle some hurt I’m laying on someone. I can see it being particularly useful when referring to the hoi polloi when directly speaking to the hoi polloi, so much better than you proles, you peons or you unwashed.

  8. Jack Frapp Sampy is not going to like that man.
