Thanksgiving Discussions Didn’t Help O-Care

From NewsBusters:

Follow-up: Tweeters Indicate Thanksgiving Obamacare Conversations Didn’t Help the President’s Cause

By Tom Blumer | November 30, 2013

In the run-up to Thanksgiving, Organizing For Action… encouraged its members to "have the talk with your loved ones" about signing up for Obamacare.

… [O]n Thursday, two Huffington Post writers suggested that changing the subject away from Obamacare might be the better move. Even Andrew Rosenthal at the Obama-loving New York Times was concerned…: "The president’s communications team is just asking for it."

Based on tweets collected by the intrepid Twitter monitors at Twitchy.com, they got it:

"My family is drunk and screaming at each other about Obamacare."
"Family fighting over Obamacare. lol here we go."
"Yay! Inevitable Obamacare extended family argument time!"
"Arguing about Obamacare and social media at the dinner table…. I’m so done wow can I sleep now?"
"Oh no. Someone brought up health insurance and obamacare and now there’s lots of yelling."
"Everybody’s drunk and yelling at each other about obamacare and its not even 5 yet."

But Obamacare chatter at the dinner table didn’t just lead to misery. For some, there was family unity … but not in the way Dems intended:

"We held a family vote on Obama Care and we were unanimous in being "agin" it. First time we’ve all agreed on anything."
"Followed obama’s advice to discuss #obamacare during turkey dinner. Family consensus was obama is worst Pres in US history."
"Well we sat down as a family and all talked about the failure of #obamacare today at dinner. Thats what we were supposed to do, right?"
"We discussed #Obamacare at Thanksgiving dinner. We all still agree that it sucks."
"The only remotely liberal family member at Thanksgiving dinner today didn’t say a word in defense of Obamacare. Sorry, @OFA."
"Here was our conversation about O’care at dinner; Obamacare sucks, now please pass the mashed potatoes" – "#Obamacare talk w family went better then expected. They all agreed ACA should be repealed!!"
"We discussed obamacare over dinner as we were instructed. First time this family has been in total agreement about anything. Obamacare SUCKS"

Still, maybe we should thank Obama and his lickspittle minions at OFA for finally bringing some families together, at long last.

  1. At our hacienda we talked about things relative to Obama. That prudence keeps me from mentioning here.

    So, thanks for the tip, Barry. In our divisive family he is the one topic we all agreed on. Vehemently.
