“I pledge allegiance to Obama”


No, seriously:

The Obama campaign has rolled out a new Twitter campaign: “For all”. In it, celebrities and Obama supporters have uploaded images of themselves with their hands over their hearts, pledging to support his re-election bid. The creation of the Twitter feed appears to be in response to a video of Mitt Romney discussing his chances of winning over 47 percent of the electorate, which pays no federal income tax.

In April, the Obama campaign rolled out the campaign slogan “Forward,” which was immediately ridiculed for its similarity to Communist China’s “Great Leap Forward.” Like the Obama team’s last attempt to motivate its liberal base, the new campaign is open to plenty of criticism from the right; it’s the kind of propaganda Chairman Mao might have adopted. Worse, it fits into the narrative of Obama supporters as individuals more inclined to pledge allegiance to a politician before their country.


Just when you thought those fuckers couldn’t get any creepier . . .

    Are they going to go all Heaven’s Gate and take drugs with pudding? Maybe they will be different and use fruit cocktail.

    Are you fucking kidding me? Creeeeepy.

  3. Lulu says:

    The vibe that was pushed so hard in 2008 was the coolness of Obama. This kind of stuff is the most UN-cool weird shit. Jim Messina looks like a psycho and that is not cool. He also looks like a friend of mine’s grandma on drugs.

    As lyn5 said, “Disciples”. 👿 Of course we won’t know for sure until they either tatoo or carve it into their foreheads. 👿 Still feel sorry for all the little boys walking around with the name Barack or Obama. 👿

  7. kanaughty says:

    well, i am sufficiently creeped out… notice, he just doesn’t understand that using celebrities is actually NOT a good thing for him. it makes him look more like a celebrity president than an actual president who gets the job done…

  8. kanaughty says:

    oh and also, jim messina obviously doesn’t know how to pledge allegiance. you don’t use two hands, duh… i mean i am surprised he doesn’t have an ob hat on his head…

    the language from this backtrack campaign is really weird

    DEFECTORS????????

    I started school during WW2. We were taught what happened in Germany and how it happened. We were taught the history of Russia.
    We were taught that unless we were awake and aware it could happen here. I guess they do not teach that in history any more.
    I really did not think that it was happening until backtrack.
    call me paranoid or what ever that bunch scares me when I think of the future of this country

    Breaking News on Drudge: 2 ex-Navy Seals were not part of security team for Ambassador. 👿 Hillary and Obama lied, people died. 👿

    What, exactly, “for all”? Justice for all? Tell that to Brian Terry’s family. A check for all? Obama for all? WTF does this even mean? Jeebus, you’d think after Hopenchange they’d learn.

    Here’s a new law for all those Hollywood multi-millionaires:

    House passes new Buffett Rule

    The House on Wednesday passed Republicans’ own version of the Buffett Rule, which allows wealthy Americans to voluntarily pony up to reduce the deficit.

    The bill, labeled the Buffett Rule Act, passed by voice vote, meaning Democrats and Republicans agreed with it. Under the legislation, which would still need Senate approval, taxpayers could check a box on their taxes and send in a check for more than they owe to the IRS.

    “If Warren Buffett and others like him truly feel they’re not paying enough in taxes, they can use the Buffett Rule Act to put their money where their mouth is and voluntarily send in more to pay down the national debt, rather than changing the entire tax code to inflict more job-killing tax hikes on hard-working Americans,” said Rep. Steve Scalise, the Louisiana Republican who wrote the bill.

      You could always donated to the US treasury if you wanted to, but I like this FU to them with this. 🙂

    I want to see who ponies up LOL

    So, today in “not-how-Romney-screwed-it-all-up” news:

    A WH intel rep admitted that Libya attack was a terrorist attack, but they are still sticking to “not pre-planned; just took advantage of situation” line:

    http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2012/09/19/no-evidence-deadly-libya-attack-planned-u-s-official/

    And remember that Colombia Secret Service prostitution scandal from a few months back? Word is coming out that White House staff also hired prostitutes.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/09/19/probe-may-cite-white-house-advance-team-involvement-in-prostitution-scandal/

    And CBO says it is 6 million (up from 4 million) who will get hit with Obamacare TAX (although they call it a penalty):

    http://money.cnn.com/2012/09/19/news/economy/healthcare-law-penalty/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

    It will be interesting to see how the MSM blames this all on Romney.

  19. angienc says:

    Hey, I’m in moderation for multiple links. Sorry

  20. I’ve taken a break from the campaign to think about something different for a minute….

    Nats still batting.

    More Obama propaganda — The Obama “O” on the flag (where blue field of stars should be) on campaign swag. Go look now as tweet about it was deleted after complaints.

    • gram cracker says:

      The red smudges on that flag make me think of the haunting images of the bloody finger smudges on the walls of the consulate. Shame on Hillary and Barack!

    • All this stuff is even creepier than the Obama ring and the fake seal they designed — they got blowback for that, too. Then pretended they were not doing it. Does the Obama campaign really think that indies will not be creeped out by this? What is this supposed to accomplish. His loyal supporters don’t require this to get them fired up.

  23. angienc says:

    Sorry for all the links tonight but you have to go see the memegenerator for that creepy Messina “pledge” pic (h/t HoSHQ):

    1st inning of the SF Giants/Rockies game. Two pregnant women were holding up a sign that said “Hit a home run and we’ll name our babies after you.”

    Panda golfed a 3-run dinger off the foul pole. There will soon be 2 baby Pablos somewhere in #SFGiants land.

    please excuse my language
    isn’t this just fucking wonderful,. backtrack gives up ipad to go to live intel meetings. I am so underwhelmed

  26. carol haka says:

    I asked the question 8 days ago, why isn’t anyone talking about who armed the Libyan rebels knowing full well it would turn out our weapons would be found to be the weapons used to kill our own Americans. 👿 breaking on Gateway Pundit: American armed and trained! 👿 well Hillary, what do you and Hussein have to say about that? 👿 WE NEVER FUCKING LEARN! Mika’s dad probably was advising on exactly how to arm and train a terrorist group since he has had so much experience! Asshole!

    • wmcb says:

      Dana Loesch was going off about that. She was a loud voice against the Libya invasion, because OUR military was saying then that Al Queda was involved in the overthrow effort.

      • DM says:

        It’s been reported that the same thing is happening in Syria. al-Q is mixed with Syrians to overthrow Assad.

        • wmcb says:

          Knowing what is going to replace it BEFORE you boot the guy is like kindergarten common sense level foreign policy. But Obama is all “duuuh”.

          Unless the paranoids are right. Maybe he is doing it on purpose. I’d not be surprised at this point.

    • Glennmcgahee says:

      When this happened that was my first thought, “who armed these people?”

  27. myiq2xu says:

    MM really gets going in the 2nd half.

    • angienc says:

      You know, she’s right. Everyone inside the beltway –Dem & Rep. — were in the tank for Obama & are still in the tank for him. Bill Kristol will always have a place at the top of my “hack” list because of the time he said– with a straight face — that Hillary was hinting at a possible assassination of Obama when she mentioned Bobby Kennedy during the primary & if Obama picked her for VP he had “better get a food taster.” GAH! Waddanasshole.

      Also, I never, ever want Malkin pissed off at me.

    That is tres creepy. Should we check under O’s hair for the sign? Maybe an omen.

  29. wmcb says:

    Well, you thought it couldn’t get creepier, but it has. Obama has redesigned the American flag to feature himself. The new version is up on his website. And the red smears are disturbingly familiar:

  30. angienc says:

    OK, one more link — Brett Baier ran a 5 minute piece tonight on FOX news about what is being billed as an “explosive” story that blows apart Obama’s fake “underprivileged” bio that is going to published in the Washington Examiner tomorrow — all about the privileged life Obama had, his pathetic record helping slum lords in Chicago, etc. I seriously doubt the MSM will pick this up other than to call the Washington Examiner a liar, etc, but Brett Baier’s show is the “news” on FOX (and Brett actually usually does a good jobs, the times I’ve watched it), not an opinion show like Hannity or O’Reily. I actually can’t even believe FOX ran it. You can watch the video at this site here:

    A friend of mine was a letter carrier. He’s a very mellow guy, soft-spoken, calm, not easily agitated. For this reason, the office he worked at put his case between two “problem” employees. On one side was a guy who was always threatening the supervisors, and on the other side of him was a woman who was so out of it that, in addition to holding conversations with herself, would apply her make-up vertically askew: half where it was supposed to go, half where it wasn’t. She’d come to work that way, chattering away, and going about her business with lipstick all upside her cheek like this was normal. That’s what these folks remind me of. That crazy guy standing on the corner with his jacket on backwards and a take-out box on his head who you cross the street to avoid. And I’m sure they have no idea how deranged they are or why the rest of us are staring, from a comfortable distance, with our mouths agape.
