Obama Email Demands Yet More Power

The latest email from the Obama administration:

From: "Mitch Stewart, BarackObama.com" <info@barackobama.com>
To: XXXX XXXXXX <XXXXXXXXX@XXXXXXX.com>
Sent: Wednesday, September 2, 2009 10:21:24 AM
Subject: Power.

XXXXX —

Opponents of health insurance reform have power. Some reap huge profits from the status quo. Others take large campaign contributions from those who profit.

So they’ll do anything to keep the current system in place. When fact-based arguments don’t work, they attack President Obama with outlandish lies about a government takeover and euthanizing the elderly. And once that doesn’t work, they’ll go even further.

We don’t know what they’ll do next. What we do know is that we’ll have to be prepared for anything — ready to set the record straight, ready to make sure the media and Congress see the overwhelming support for reform, and ready to pass real reform this year.

But we’ll need the resources to do it — to pay for rapid-response ads in key districts and states, organizers to put together large rallies and grassroots events throughout the country, and the best technology available to empower volunteers — all at a moment’s notice. Please chip in $5 or more to help us pass real reform, this year.

This was never going to be easy. As candidate Obama said just three days before the election: "Don’t think for a moment that power will concede without a fight." Now, we’re seeing how true that really is.

These same well-financed forces have killed reform in the past, and they’re aiming to do it again.

But here’s why this time can be different: There are folks like you, all around the country, who are ready to go toe-to-toe with the special interests, even when they’re not fighting fair.

And we’ll keep at it, because we know that the work we’re doing together right now can make the lives of hundreds of millions better for decades to come.

But we need your help to keep it up. Please donate $5 or more to help beat the special interests.

There’s too much at stake for any of us to sit this one out. Please chip in.

Thanks,

Mitch

It’s a little disturbing.

Mr. Obama’s side has the Presidency, the Congress, the media, the academy, the arts, the popular culture, Wall Street, the unions, the rights lobbies – everything.

And yet they still don’t have enough power to suit their tastes.

You don’t hear Mr. Chavez complaining and asking for donations, do you?

But Mr. Obama has never had his quiet dignity.

(Thanks to Colonel1961 for the heads up.)

    Mitch Stewart’s name seems to ring a bell with me; was he the one involved with a child molesting charge?
    I can’t seem to find anything online.

    Remember the outrage over Iran/Contra? This smells.

    Another parallel with National Socialism.

    More power than anybody in this country has ever had is not enough. Not near enough.

    “When fact-based arguments don’t work, they attack President Obama with outlandish lies about a government takeover and euthanizing the elderly.”

    —-Since when did the fact-based arguments not work? The facts are precisely the reason that is leading to the downward spiralif this bastardized HR 3200. The facts have been brought forward and they cannot refute them.

    It’s really pathetic that they cannot draw any logical inferences from the intentionally vague writings in the resolution and also that the plain, written word in same is to difficult for them to comprehend. Additionally, the fact that much of it is incomprehensible to begin with should be a red flag. Let’s suppose for one moment that the erpublicans decided to put forth a bill written like this. Imagine the outcry then.

    As for attacks against Blammo, the boy king, well….all I have to say is “How’s it feel?” Truth hurts, don’t it? And you should be careful what you wish for.

      RS, here’s my take…

      “When fact-based arguments don’t work, they attack President Obama with outlandish lies… And once that doesn’t work, they’ll go even further.”

      Take out Barry and insert Sarah Palin. Every time these left-wing loons complain about tactics, you know they’ve already been there and done that.

  5. Arctain says:

    The White House team is re-framing this debate on whether or not you ‘like’ Obama – if you ‘like’ him, then you want him to succeed, and therefore you want his Health Care socialism to succeed; and thus you are a patriotic American. If you don’t ‘like’ him, then you want him to fail, want his health care socialism to fail, and thus are an unpatriotic American (and possibly a right-wing domestic terrorist).

    • proreason says:

      “reframing the debate on whether or not you ‘like’ Obama the Moron”

      That would be fantastic. Please, please, let them do that.

      Rev Wright, the Czars, Farrakam, Saul Alinsky, Bill Ayers, Tax Cheat Timmy, releasing Terrorists.

      America is learning.

    • Right of the People says:

      Right wing domestic terrorist and damned proud of it.

    • Arctain says:

      proreason,

      Unfortunately, the American people didn’t learn that lesson when they elected him. And so, they are trying to get back to the “Cult of Personality” that won them the election.

      While I don’t think it will work, the fight against this socialism isn’t over yet. Expect the same kind of Chicago-style politics, the same kind of smear campaign, an increase in the ACORN intimidation tactics, and the same kind of politics of personal destruction that manifested in the campaign (“Lipstick on a Pig” comment, anyone?) and won him the White House.

    • proreason says:

      “Unfortunately, the American people didn’t learn that lesson when they elected him”

      The Tea Parties, Townhalls and most of the polling indicates the people’s eyes are getting pretty wide about the Criminal Cabal that has siezed the country.

      You’re right. It ain’t over till it’s over.

      But there is definitely more awareness and a ton more spirit on our side this time than last.

      They thought they could bowl grannie over, but they thought wrong.

  6. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    Asking for Americans to chip in $5.00 to help defray the costs of defending the presidents image and ambitions? Not from me! Call me what you want, but if I want to be generous I’ll donate to the charity of my liking. And if I want to be a greedy sob and hoard my money to myself then it’s my business not theirs. The elections of 2010 and 2012 can’t come quickly enough.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      I’ll gladly give to anyone that will run this BRAVO TURD out of office on a rail.

      He’s got some balls, don’t he?

    • catie says:

      LD & 12, I’ll donate to anyone who will run against this monster too. I’m considering pulling my son out of school for the Obamadoctrination next Tuesday. It’s his first day of school but my husband says not to worry. Anytime Obama is on tv, my son says “obama is stupid, or obama is an idiot”. Can’t wait for the phone call from the teacher.

  7. sheehanjihad says:

    We, the People, are running him out of office right now. The Democrat liberal left machine grossly underestimated the true pulse of the American electorate…..and since almost ALL in congress are viewed in a very very negative light by Americans….real Americans who realize that they have to power instill the always existing term limits on these self serving despots disguised as elected officials: They are going to be voted out of office! And they know it! They are scared sh*tless for the first time in their storied corruption filled careers….because…….they are bound to back Obaba, they are under the harsh and totalitarian iron fisted rule of Pelosi and Reid….and now, their constituents who normally just took it on the chin are saying, and loudly…..ENOUGH! I enjoy watching them sweat….and if they think they are feeling the heat now, wait till 2010 and 2012……LOL! I dont think that even the leftist voter fraud professionals will be able to dig up enough dead people or import enough illegals to stuff the ballot boxes this time, no matter how many times each one votes…. because conservative turnout will be in record numbers,but mainly because so many democrats are going to quietly vote for the opposition. They too know that what is going on is way past just liberal ideals….we as a populace are facing socialism en force for the first time in our history, and this country, with all of it’s flaws, is still the greatest Nation on earth….and even the sniveling liberals know that they will not be able to do what they do now should true socialism gain a foothold. They may bark at rallys, and hold up signs for this and that…but when they vote…they will vote to oust the communist government that they voted in in 08. If they dont, they will have to hide along with those in power who will find out what happens when it matters to Americans. And it wont be pretty. We will prevail….one way, or the other, we will prevail. This evil that is upon us cant last, because like every virulent disease and cancer, it slowly kills it’s host, and thus withers with it.

      hear hear!!

      A big AMEN to that!!!

    • Colonel1961 says:

      Well said, SJ – vastly underestimated. Or should I say vastly misunderestimated. ;-)

  8. MinnesotaRush says:

    Has anyone ever seen an American President (and gang) so hell bent on going against the will of the people as this o-blah-blah dude and his buddies?

    Truth be known, it’s NOT about health care!!! But is about unbridled POWER!

    “Opponents of health insurance reform have power.”

    And damnit all!!! We (the o-blah-blah gang) WANT THE POWER!!!

    They finally named it and owned it! THEY WANT THE POWER!!!

    • proreason says:

      MR: it’s not so much that he is hell bent on going against the will of the people.

      The will of the people is irrelevant to him.

      As you say, it’s all about power for a tiny elite. What the people want is only relevant if it interferes with his ability to sieze it.

      For example, the People Beast has rumbled a bit about the Health Scare Scam, so expect a new set of lies soon. The ONLY purpose of the lies will be to placate the beast so that the march to absolute power can get back on trak.

    The Obama skull symbol, now has 3 stars on top of it. No doubt, it has religious meaning.

  10. Tater Salad says:

    Please vote on H.R. 615 whereas members of Congress who want to cram this socialized healthcare down everyones throats will also be bound to accept the same healthcare insurance as they are forcing us.

    “The Details2 PHONE CALLS ON 9/11 – Illinois! (Health Care Organizing Event)
    STAY HOME FOR THIS EVENT! DO NOT GO ANYWHERE!
    Stay HOME:
    —* The Event consists of ALL OF US Making Two Phone Calls on one particular, single day.
    —* We call each of our State Senators (phone numbers are below) on that day.

    What day? Our US Senators return to DC the Tues after Labor Day. That next FRIDAY, Sep 11, is Patriot Day, designated in memory of the nearly three thousand who died in the 9/11 attacks.

    All 50 States are coordinating in this – as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.

    DO YOU WANT to ensure passage of the Public Plan? Since 75% of Americans support it, I guess it’s time for us Seventy-Five Percenters to be heard. Why Public Plan? = Because It’s American To Take Care Of Our Own!

    And, according to a White House Advisor to the President with whom I spoke ten days ago at a DNC Panel, he said, “ON ONE DAY you ‘burn-up’ the Senate Switchboards – THE NEXT DAY you’ve got the Senator’s attention”. We will achieve that effect, on Friday, Patriot Day 9/11.

    Auto-generated emails will remind you about our Armchair Public Plan Slam-Dunk Two-Phone-Call Call-A-Thon. Plus I will email you that day, too. And, if you’re proud you joined-in, then email me (the Host) back, when you’ve made your calls. I will be honored to report our massive numbers to OFA for them to brag on the web.

    2 PHONE CALLS ON 9/11 – BE A TRUE PATRIOT –

    DEFEAT ANTI-DEMOCRATIC FORCES OF HATE WHO CONSPIRE TO REMAIN HEALTHY + WEALTHY WHILE THE PUBLIC LANGUISHES UNDER THE BURDEN OF OUR PRESENT HEALTH CARE SYSTEM –

    —* TELL THEM: “I’m calling from the city of [xxx] – and I AM mad as Hell – and I AM NOT going to take it anymore, If You Don’t Mind!”…
    —* TELL THEM: “Please make the Public Plan the Law of the Land –
    —* TELL THEM: “Because IT’S AMERICAN TO TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN.”
    —* TELL THEM: “Tell that to my Senator – Thank you, Good-bye.”

    That’s it – simple – all you need is a calendar, an armchair and a phone, for us to have a good strong voice.

    Ask your friends if they want to join our Public Plan Call-A-Thon on 9/11: Patriot’s Day –

    [Conservatives are HEIRS of Bin Ladin]
    —* RECLAIM OUR LAND FROM THE HEIRS OF, YES: BIN LADEN *—* YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE *—

    In case you haven’t seen it in the News: Republican Representatives, Senators, GOP Party Leader, GOP Political Machine top personnel (e.g., Gingritch), etc etc etc — they’re ALL every one of them applauding and encouraging their zealot-horde by merrily referring to them as “Proud Right-Wing Terrorists”. Google it – I’m not pulling your leg.

    But don’t hate them: Misguided citizens are easy-pickings for demagogues, whom they blindly follow because they’ve been trained all their lives not to question the dogma of their religion, so it’s natural for them NOT TO QUESTION what’s being spoon-fed to them by their FALSE PROPHETS who, themselves, shamelessly seek Worldly Glory.

    They don’t apply the simple Test: “Am I being led closer to God, when I do what these folks say? – Or, am I on a Bullet-Train to the Devil, and I’m just a pawn to make these folks richer and more powerful?” Because, you know: the Faith one has in God, is different from faith one should have in Man. And you need to be even MORE skeptical, when one of ‘em says that God picked them for something or another. You can bet whatever they’re doing is making them more powerful/ more wealthy, and certainly less pious, no? Ooops, and following them is making YOU less pious too, in thought, and in deed. Yesseree, it’s a real thing to chew on.

    Just remember: We Are The Super-Heroes Who Yes WE DID, and YES, WE SHALL commence administering Super-Hero Karate Chops, beginning now.

    Oh, and can some of you facebook and tweat this around? I’m not that good at it yet.
    IF YOU MISS THIS DAY, JUST DO IT OVER THE WEEKEND – IT’LL ALL GET REPORTED TO THE RESPECTIVE SENATORS ON MONDAY, ANYWAY.
