Obama’s Eyes Are on 2012 Prize

Evidence accrues that Comrade Obama continues to defy the public he supposedly represents by imposing overwhelmingly unpopular policies because he doesn’t care if his party loses Congress this fall. The lefties at Time, who helped hype him into office, discuss the ostensible decline of Obama’s Organizing for America machine:

What happened to Barack Obama’s once vaunted political machine? The outfit that put upwards of 8 million volunteers on the street in 2008 – known as Organizing for America – is a ghost of its former self. Its staff has shrunk from 6,000 to 300, and its donors are depressed: receipts are a fraction of what they were in 2008. Virtually no one in politics believes it will turn many contests this fall. “There’s no chance that OFA is going to have the slightest impact on the midterms,” says Charlie Cook, who tracks congressional races.

Neglect is to blame. After Obama was elected, his political aides ignored the army he had created until it eventually disappeared.

Like ACORN, OFA is unfortunately not really dead, but lying low beneath its rock until it is called forth for the Manchurian Moonbat’s big comeback in 2012:

So earlier this year, when the White House gave OFA a whopping $30 million – more than half of the party’s entire budget for 2010 – senior Democrats suspected a hidden agenda. Several tell Time that OFA boss David Plouffe, who ran Obama’s 2008 campaign, is using the cash to rebuild an army for 2012 under the cover of boosting turnout in 2010. OFA is putting staff into such states as Virginia, North Carolina and Arizona, which have few close statewide races this fall but which are all prime targets in an Obama re-election campaign. “This is totally about 2012,” Cook says.

What everything is totally about with Obama is Obama. November’s congressional cannon fodder will be a small price to pay for ObamaCare, the biggest lurch toward totalitarian collectivism since FDR. So long as the king is on the throne, all is copacetic. “Community organizing” will be taken to new extremes of unsavoriness in 2012 to keep him there, as the Injustice Department’s refusal to prosecute the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation makes clear.

In the meantime, Obamunists in the media will be glad to condition the public with two years of stories about stodgy old white guys in Congress preventing the Historic First Mulatto President from saving the world if grownups do manage to take control of the legislative branch.
