Obama Wants You to Pledge Loyalty to Him

By Lona Manning

They have taken a pledge of loyalty to Obama, and they say they are coming tomorrow for yours. Organizing for America, the Obama-for-President campaign morphed into Obama-for-Maximum-Leader army, will hit the streets for their “Pledge Project Canvass,” knocking on doors and accosting folks in parking lots and sidewalks to ask them to sign a pledge to support Obama’s policies for health care, energy and education reform.Organizing for America, a project of the Democratic National Committee, is variously described in the media as [President Obama’s] “own version of a lobbying firm”, “a parallel organization to the Democratic National Committee” and “an independent force to lobby for Obama’s goals” (Houston Chronicle); “an independent group” (Dayton Daily News); Obama’s “citizen army,” and a way of building public opinion” (The Bergen County Record); “a grass-roots lobbying group,” (Roll Call), “Obama 2.0” (Newark Star-Ledger), “a joint partnership,” (DNC press release), and as a “political bully,” (AP).

American Thinker: The Knock at the Door, Exerpts:

“Obama describes OFA as a “grass-roots movement” but OFA is a “project” of the Democratic Natrional Committee.”
 
“A visit to the OFA website reveals that supporters are not simply asked to sign up, they are asked to take a pledge. A pledge to support — not the flag, not the constitution, not the country, not even the Democratic Party, but Obama and his “bold plan.” OFA does not use the Democratic Party logo but the “O”-shaped logo of the Obama campaign in which the red white and blue of the flag are abstracted to soft pastel colors.”

“So we have a Movement — this is their term, not mine — organized by, and loyal to, a sitting President. Pledge canvassers, armed with your name, will ask you to pledge loyalty to the President too. A president whose term has already become a permanent campaign, is signing up ground forces in a mass organization pledged to personal loyalty to their Leader”
