Organizing For Action Is NOT Non-Partisan
Organizing For Action used to be Organizing For Obama, in other words, his campaign machine. Now that he’s been re-elected OFA has re-branded as a non-profit, tax-exempt entity which laughably claims to be non-partisan.
It’s being run by Jim Messina who ran Obama’s 2012 campaign and they now control Obama’s official Twitter feed but we’re supposed to believe they’re a “non-partisan” organization? Please.
Does this sound like something a non-partisan organization would do?
Organizing for Action targets GOP lawmakers in first ad buy
WASHINGTON — Four California Republican House members are among 13 GOP legislators being targeted by a pro-Obama advocacy group in a new online ad campaign urging them to back a more robust background check system for gun sales.
Reps. Jeff Denham, Howard P. “Buck” McKeon, Gary G. Miller and David Valadao are among those featured in the banner ads, which begin running Friday on the websites of local news outlets such as the Modesto Bee and Santa Clarita Valley Signal. The ads, tailored with the photos and Twitter handle of each member of Congress, call on them to support universal background checks.
The online ad buy, which cost close to six figures, is the first such campaign by Organizing for Action, the month-old advocacy group formed by top advisors to President Obama to build momentum for his legislative agenda.
OFA uses Obama’s twitter account to send out dishonest messages like this one which fails to account for all of the people who have dropped out of the workforce since Obama became president.
Organizing For Action is about as non-partisan as a Huffington Post super user or any writer at The Daily Kos. The fact that they enjoy non-profit status is a joke.
Remember, these are the same people who demand that everyone pay their fair share, that paying higher taxes is patriotic and that millionaires/billionaires are evil people who became wealthy by stealing from someone else.
If they want to promote Obama’s agenda, that’s their business.
But don’t tell me they’re non-partisan.
