Campaign against Liberty might be a more appropriate name for Organizing For Action, a new group formed by top operatives from President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, such as Obama’s Campaign Manager, Jim Messina, and top advisor, David Axelrod.

I find this very interesting and very troubling. Where in the *** is this country going to. Never in U.S. history has a sitting president morphed his campaign team into a tax-exempt nonprofit designed to use its voter databases to ramrod a president’s legislative agenda. Until now. On Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama said the Obama campaign, officially known as Obama for America, will soon be turned into a 501 (c) 4 social welfare non-profit called Organizing For Action that can raise unlimited donations and will become “the next phase of our movement for change.” Former Obama Campaign Manager Jim Messina will become the group’s chairman of the board, Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod will be a consultant, and Obama media strategist David Plouffe will join the group once he exits the White House. According to Politico, the group claims it will disclose its donors and not take money from lobbyists or political action committees (PACs), but will take unlimited money from corporations. “It ...

You know what amazes me in a good way? David Axelrod and Jim Messina were apparently the Dems' hardnosed versions of Karl Rove.
Oh brother! Where's a conservative equivalent to David Axelrod or Jim Messina, when the GOP desperately needs one???
As we turn the page on this election season and move toward a semblance of normalcy I think there is one overriding reason why the election turned out the way it did. The word that comes to mind is RESPECT. The Romney Team did not respect the President and the people in Chicago. They thought his election in 08 was a fluke and a superior candidate would easily dispense with the President quickly. Adding to their sense 2012 was destined to be a slam dunk was a sluggish economy and Americans anxiety about the future. The problem was they had no sense of history or self awareness. It never dawned on them that David Axelrod, Jim Messina and David Plouffe managed to get the first African American elected President in the history of our country. No one figured the odds of getting re-elected are better than getting elected in the first place. They underestimated the girls/boys in Chicago and it showed all summer long. During the summer Chicago pounded them over Romney's time at Bain. The Bain stuff wasn't new. ...
Jim Messina and David Axelrod... Does the Obama campaign have anyone who doesn't look like a level 3 sex offender on staff?
There's been a lot of conversation tonight about who should be the MVP of the Obama Campaign. Of course, David Axelrod, David Plouffe, and Jim Messina each deserve a nod for running a brilliant campaign, specifically for defining Willard before he had a chance to define (i.e. lie about) himself. You can't ignore the anonymous individual who recorded the infamous "47% video" either. In fact, Lawrence O'Donnell, Krystal Ball, and Ari Member unanimously thought that the award should go to this person, whoever he or she might be. Two more worthy candidates are Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, who unwittingly unmasked the GOP ticket for who they really are. Then, of course, there was Chris Christie, who proved to the American people that the only reason why there hasn't been any bipartisan cooperation in Washington in the last four years is because Republicans in Congress have stridently refused to work with Barack Obama who has always stood at the ready to work with them. Nevertheless, in retrospect, I don't b ...
Tipping my hat to David Axelrod, David Plouffe, Jim Messina, Rohm Emanuel, Robert Gibbs and of course, Bill Clinton ... the MEN behind Mr. Obama. I laud the WOMEN ... Valerie Jarrett, Stephanie Cutter, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and the woman simply known by her first name, MICHELLE, a wonderful First Lady indeed!!
Obama's gaining or maintaining in the swing states Team Obama is so dismissive of Romney's touted ad buys in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania that senior Obama adviser David Axelrod bet MSNBC's Joe Scarborough that he'd shave the mustache he has worn for 40 years if Romney wins any of them. The only reason Romney is making these desperate feints, Obama strategists argue, is that the polls show must-win Ohio slipping out of reach, and he's not winning any of the key states up for grabs. "There is no Romney momentum in the battleground states, only smoke and mirrors," Obama Campaign Manager Jim Messina said Wednesday. "We have the math; they have the myth."
Obama to use "affirmative" message in closing campaign pitch By Jeff Mason | Reuters – 2 hrs 23 mins ago.. . . WASHINGTON (Reuters) - After three days of focusing on superstorm Sandy, President Barack Obama will return to the campaign trail on Thursday with a more "affirmative" message to win over undecided voters in the final days of the race for the White House. With polls showing a tight contest between the Democratic incumbent and Republican challenger Mitt Romney before Tuesday's election, Obama will use trips to political battleground states to make a closing appeal for a second term. That argument will touch on points he has made for months about the choice between competing Republican and Democratic visions, Obama advisers said, but it will put more weight on Obama's ideas for the future and could resurrect some of the hopeful themes that helped him win election in 2008. "You're going to see him lift up ... the vision of what we're fighting for," senior campaign strategist David Axelrod said in ...
Team Obama to press: We’re going to win By REID J. EPSTEIN | 10/29/12 11:54 AM EDT President Obama’s top aides told reporters in no uncertain terms Monday that they are winning the campaign and are tied or ahead in all the swing states. “I don’t want to be ambiguous about this at all, We’re winning this race,” senior adviser David Axelrod said on a conference call Monday morning. “I say that not on the basis of some mystical faith in a wave that’s going to come or some hidden vote. We base it on cold, hard data based on who has voted so far and on state by state polling. So we just, you’re going to get spun and spun and spun in the next week and what I would urge you to do is to focus on the facts, focus on the data, focus on the trends in the states and if you do it will lead you to the same conclusions.” Both Axelrod and the campaign’s manager, Jim Messina, taunted GOP rival Mitt Romney’s team with suggestions that Republicans are “bluffing” when they claim momentum. Forays b ...
I'm tired of being panhandled three times a day for $5 by Barack & Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton, Debbie Wasserman, Joe Biden, Hilary Kuryk, David Axelrod, Juliana Smoot, Patrick Gaspard, Jim Messina, Donna Brazile, Ann Marie Habershaw, Rufus Gifford and Stephanie Cutter. And that's just this month.
Yeah I get it! BUT please: David Axelrod, Jim Messina, Joe Biden, Stephanie Cutter, and yes Michelle Obama too - STOP EMAILING ME!
Hey! Me Too! And Jim Messina and Julianna Smoot and Rufus Gifford and David Axelrod...They all love me!
Barack, Michelle, Debbie, Joe, John Kerry, Jim Messina, David Axelrod, Patrick Gaspard & Juliana Smoot email me more than my friends do.
I am thrilled to see the desparation of the Obama administration. Today alone, I receive emails from Joe Biden, David Axelrod, John Kerry, and Jim Messina. All wanted donations to fight the Romney assault. Appears to me they are running scared! So for those of my friends that support Obama, please donate. Because I plan to right a check to the GOP!
This is the comment I sent to www.whitehouse.gov today. Mr. President I feel so honored. I received four emails from your goofy campaign staff in 24 hours. I know you are busy and don’t really care as long as they bring in the bucks so I will give you a quick review of each. 1. Juliannna Smoot: “….savor this- because it is one of the final deadline emails you’ll see from me. Get out and talk to voters and send five bucks now. 2. David Axelrod: Obama care must be saved. Defend Obama care and send five bucks now. 3. Jim Messina: Paul Ryan lied in my opinion. Oops he forgot to ask for five bucks. Get out the Black Snake and handle this slacker. 4. John Kerry: Defend President Obama against false attacks. Send five bucks. Mr. President they wasted words since only your base will probably respond positively to these spin messages. Mr. President maybe the spin will not be as effective as you want it to be. According to polls posted by Hot Air you are losing your base in all categories to inc ...
The Democrats are running scared, I have recieved emails from John Kerry, Howard Dean, President Obama, Joe Biden,Jim Messina,(an aid to Obama,Patrick Gaspard another Obama aid,David Axelrod,Julianna Smoot another Obama aid, all in the last 24 hours. They fear We The People, and know that we are going to change the dynamics of America's Political Future, one election at a time. Every lying Politician should fear the People of the United States,
I bet David Axelrod and Jim Messina are laughing their *** off at
From a guy who has some skin in the game: On CNN yesterday, Obama strategist David Axelrod claimed that “most of the experts who have looked at this” have said that Paul Ryan’s plan to reform Medicare would put the program “in a death spiral” and “would raise costs on seniors by thousands of dollars.” A day earlier — as Representative Ryan was preparing to accept Mitt Romney’s offer to join his ticket — Obama Campaign Manager Jim Messina had said the plan involved “shifting thousands of dollars in health-care costs to seniors.” None of this is true. Any expert who looks at Ryan’s plan — any intelligent and fair-minded person, really — can tell you the actual worst-case scenario for how much more it could make beneficiaries pay: $0. The claim Axelrod and Messina are making is based on a hostile interpretation of an earlier version of Ryan’s proposal. Ryan has changed the proposal over the last year, however, and Romney has endorsed the new version. The Democratic criticism, ...
Via Tom Kinney This is the comment I have sent to tonight. Mr. President I received emails today from two of your trusted stooges. I am referring to David Axelrod and Jim Messina. They could have saved time and money if they had both ...just signed the same message but they are just like you and love to waste other people’s money. Not only did they waste money but they wasted the time of their staff by writing lengthy letters that said essentially the same derogatory comments about Paul Ryan. Since they said the same thing they also had the same underlying theme. The theme is simple and familiar to the entirety of the Obama group; class warfare. Mr. President it is a shame that you have to rely on class warfare, a campaign that specializes in slander, playing the race card, and using Executive Orders to legislate to cover up for your failed administration. Do you ever ask yourself if you might have not been such a miserable failure if you had not put your personal agenda ahead of the U.S. Constitution a ...
Are FCC laws a big deal??, no coordination between the Obama Whitehouse and the Super Pac (Priorities USA) on that pathetic ad blaming Romney for the death of that women ? do you believe that ? lets lay out a couple facts BESIDES the audio tape of Mrs Cutter talking to the husband on the conference call on May 14th, lets pretend we haven’t heard that one yet LOL … Priorities USA run by former Whitehouse official (Bill Burton) Who’s helped Billy boy raise money for THE SAME Super Pac (Obama men = Jim Messina , David Axelrod , Robert Gibbs) Also here is David Plouffe’s name again (current senior Obama advisor) , this guy helped them raise money too , still think there is no coordination going on ?? IF you say yes to that , then I’m afraid to tell you , you should disconnect your phone lines cuz your going to get taken , someone’s going to call your house looking for an investor , probably for a swamp land resort , you wont know the guy but he has your best interest in heart , really he does , tr ...
Emails from both Barack and Michelle Obama, James Carville, Jim Messina, Nate Shinagawa, Mindy Meyers and David Axelrod today.
I'm flattered to be receiving dozens of personal emails from: Joe Biden "An emotional moment in the Oval office". David Axelrod "Say you're with President Obama on this". Barack Obama "Say you're with me". Jim Messina "Let's win this *** election". Barack Obama "I will be outspent". Jim Messina"Todays decision". Also heard fom Michelle O'bama. Had invites to dine with several Hollywood celebrities at their homes, with the Pres. and First Lady...and all they want is $3.00 toward their campaign--this might have better odds than the lottery, and I can get a voucher to opt out on participating in the new Health Plan !
If you've ever wondered how much Jim Messina, Juliana Smoot, David Axelrod, etc. get paid...
OMG. I freaking get it! I get it, now! David Axelrod, David Plough, Jim Messina, you are BRILLIANT! Shut him out of the center and make him stick to his guns from the Primary. *** the etch-a-sketch away and make him swallow his words. I tip my hat to you gentlemen. I wasn't sure what you had up your collective blue sleeves but once again - you prove that the President has keen taste in strategists.
If you pause and listen carefully, you might be able to hear the despair coming from Jim Messina, President Obama’s 2012 Campaign Manager, and David Axelrod, Obama’s top strategist and communications director, as the meaning of Wisconsin’s recall election becomes clear.
