Obama’s Organizing For America Flops Again: Only 8 Show Up For Amnesty Rally

Are even liberals this unenthusiastic about amnesty or have all of Obama’s diehard supporters at Organizing For America gotten sick of him, too?

Organizing for Action, the nonprofit policy advocacy arm formed to push President Barack Obama’s agenda, gathered only eight people to rally outside of the Merillville office of Rep. Pete Visclosky (D-Ind.) on Monday to push the congressman to support reform. The congressman was not actually in his office at the time.

The results were better but still underwhelming in other spots– 20 in Tennessee, 25 outside Boehner’s office in Ohio, a dozen in Iowa. A speech by Harry Reid drew hundreds, but I’m not sure we can credit OFA for that. These guys have access to an e-mail list of 13 million and presumably the data to figure out which of them care about this issue. I wonder, as I have from the beginning of this immigration push, if this isn’t yet another symptom of the rather low priority Americans place on immigration reform right now. The Beltway thinks it’s a keen way to spend its time, but it thought the same thing about gun control. On a list of 12 issues, Americans ranked immigration reform lowest on their list of legislative priorities in May, right behind gun control, which just went down dramatically with no visible political price for its opponents in the immediate aftermath.

Out of 13 million people, the OFA organizers could only get 8 people to show up at a rally? That doesn’t sound like they’re very effective at “organizing” or “action.”
