We would say that president who never stops campaigning is meeting tomorrow night with his campaign staff, but that’s not quite accurate: Organizing for Action, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney tells us, is an “independent organization” — which just happens to run the @BarackObama Twitter account. CBS News’ Mark Knoller notes that President Obama will hold a question and answer session with OFA tomorrow, but the press is not invited.

We don’t know what $250 buys you, but as the New York Times reported, $500,000 to this “independent organization” gets you quite a bit.

Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House. Moreover, the new cash demands on Mr. Obama’s top donors and bundlers come as many of them are angling for appointments to administration jobs or ambassadorships.

    Are those crickets chirping in the distance?

    Is the Pres. prostituting himself to the OFA?

    • SpinMeNot

      Did you have to go there … I’m trying to get off the pain pills and mental images like this aren’t helping.

      • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

        Hope you don’t own a gun.

        • SpinMeNot

          no, I don’t own “a” gun.

      OFA is simply a node of the ObamaBorg. It’s reuniting with the host.

        You mean the Queen Borg?

        • Brown Bear Mike

          Yes, of course. How silly of me.

  • Brown Bear Mike

    “Independent organization OFA” … that just ‘happens’ to use the BARACKOBAMA.ORG domain.

    Yeah, surrrre.

    “We’ll mobilize to support the president’s agenda, but we won’t do so on behalf of political candidates,”

    I feel like Dashiell Hammett’s Continental Op.

    I’ve already found four lies in that statement (Outside of it being one gigantic lie and a contradiction in terms) with the promise of more.

    I wonder if Messina uses this kind of inverted nonsense logic when he dons a trench coat and trolls Athletic Clubs?

    Hey, you can speak to Obama just like all the DNC media sycophants get to do, all it takes is a cool half million!

    • GaryTheBrave

      I wonder if $500K is the price to join the WH press corpse?

      • https://twitter.com/davidjkramer DavidKramer

        No, all you have to do is be a died in the wool leftie………….and an Obama arse kisser to boot.

    Next OFA will morph into a campaign organization. Whatever they want it to be at the time. Is there any truth in this administration?

    • Adi

      They won’t. All of them are 100% O’cultist loyalists and Messiah & Mooch want all the money they can get their paws on. The Dem Party won’t get a dime from the stash.

  • Adi

    At the meeting OFA wil present a list with those who panned $500K.

    This is nothing but The Messiah’s pension plan, He knows won’t be Prez forever and has a lifestyle to preserve.

    His former campaign org was transform into a non-profit in order not to return the unused donations, and now they ask even more money to the point they dried out all other potential donations to the DNC, since all potential Dem donors prefer to stuff Messiah’s pockets. Talking about corruption and money swindling.

    This is not going to end well, and I keep some champagne ready to pop when the money fight between Messiah and DNC will explode.

      Rule of thumb: whatever the left accuses the right of trying to do while out of power, they will actually try to do while in power. Rumblings about how President Bush would try and overturn the 22nd Amendment means that some effort will be made within the next couple of years. Fortunately, I doubt 38 states would go for it, but stand by for “feeler” leaks from “unnamed sources” in major media outlets.

    Jim Messina looks like the lovechild of a lesbian and Walter Mathau

      There’s definitely a creepyness factor, ya know? . . . like registered level 3 ped-o-phile creepy!

      That picture of him with the written on hands on his chest makes him look like Gollum after finding his “Precious.”

        That’s the same picture I was referring to lol. I just watched Grumpy Old Men again the other night and he has the same fish lips Walter Mathau does.
