What If Obama Told Them To Throw A Big Party….And Nobody Came?

2-7-09

Apparently Mr. Obama misunderestimated the thrill running up everyone’s leg when he bellowed a call for his subjects to sponsor “house parties” designed to pump up some enthusiasm from the masses over the fact that he intends to put the next three generations of Americans our world citizens in hock up to their hairlines with this “stimulus bill” nonsense.

Hey if a couple of knuckleheads want to get together and pretend they are going to make some kind of grass roots movement to push this 500 pound pig through a three inch hole let them have at it. Meanwhile, as Nancy Pelosi would say, 500 million Americans have been jamming the White House switchboard and their Congressional representatives phones lines in OPPOSITION to this Obamination.

Few supporters are answering President Barack Obama’s call for nationwide house-party gatherings this weekend to build grass-roots support for his economic stimulus plan.

A McClatchy survey of sign-up rosters for a score of cities across the country revealed only 34 committed attendees in Tacoma, Wash. , as of midafternoon Friday; in Fort Worth, Texas , only 54, and in Sacramento, Calif. , just 78.

“Before the election, we would have had 500 to 800,” said Kim Mack , 46, a Sacramento city-facility manager who’s hosted house parties for political figures and causes since the mid-’90s.

Even in Washington , policy-wonk capital of the nation, only about 500 people had signed up.

Damien LaVera , a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee , called the interest level “considerable” for what he described as “the first national call to action aimed at helping to keep people informed and active in advancing the president’s agenda.”

Obama the candidate used house parties to recruit volunteers and raise money with great success, but this is the first time that a president has tried to mold his supporters into a post-election lobbying force.

It promises to be an uphill battle, several supporters said.
