Obama Campaign Collecting GOP Emails

by Keith Koffler on December 14, 2011, 10:13 am

The Obama presidential campaign is launching an effort to collect Republican email addresses by inviting its supporters to submit information about their Republican associates to the Obama 2012 website.

The effort could help the Obama campaign build a database that would enable it to target Republican voters during the general election campaign. But, more perniciously, it could also become part of an Democratic effort to influence Republican primary voters to select a candidate Democrats think Obama could most easily defeat.

The Democratic National Committee last month released a video that seemed designed to damage Mitt Romney, the GOP candidate feared most by the Obama campaign.

The Obama information collection effort is cast under the mischievous guise of asking Obama supporters to “have a little fun at the expense of a Republican in your life” by signing them up to get an email from the Obama campaign ribbing them for having “inspired” the Obama supporter to donate.

The result, however, is that the Obama campaign gets a new trove of Republican email addresses that it could never have collected through voluntary submissions.

From the Obama website:

Who inspires you to give?

This holiday season, we’re giving you a chance to have a little fun at the expense of a Republican in your life by letting them know they inspired you to make a donation to the Obama campaign.

Simply enter their name and email address below. Then, we’ll send them a message letting them know they inspired you to donate.

Thank you for supporting this campaign, and happy holidays.

Important: By making a donation today, you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to have dinner with Barack and Michelle Obama. By clicking on the “Submit” button below or otherwise participating in the promotion, you agree to be bound by these Official Rules and represent that you satisfy all of the eligibility requirements.

The effort is being supported by emails from the campaign to members of the vast Obama 2012 email list urging them to participate.

One message, from Deputy Campaign Manager Julianna Smoot, also invites donors to buy something from the Obama 2012 store for their Republican friend.

Really want to fire up your GOP friends? Buy them a gift from the 2012 store. I recommend the birther mugs — they get the message across pretty well.

The email was sent Tuesday. If the Obama supporter sends the gift directly to their Republican friend, then the campaign has a new personal address for its database.

This is an ironic juxtaposition of events. One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant

The other involves a groundhog.

Desperate enough to declare martial law over parts of the US to delay, or cancel the election. Remember the idiot idea of the Demoncrap governor of NC a couple of months ago, who opined that the elections should be postponed in order for the politicians to be able to do their important work without the stress and distraction of a campaign. Straight from the comrade Hussein WH playbook. You doubters might also ask why martial law signs have been trucked to Western parts of the US, and why the government is advertising for National Guard recruits to man detention camps via a 10 minute video. Too many new laws and regulations that are absolutely tracking those enacted by the Nazis when they came to power. But, no worry, we can trust our government, right?

Not just Creepy…DUMB. As someone who is in business for myself and does his own marketing, I cannot tell you how stupid this is.

When you engage in mass marketing you do so to either keep your name out there (e.g. we are real big), the cost of this marketing is not to bring in new clients, its to ensure your current clients that you are big. The problem with the marketing is that its expensive and a total waste of time.

Obama is Big…He is the president. Those Republicans who get the e-mails they already know who Obama is. The E-mails will be deleted…those that aren’t will likely be ridiculed…which is negative.

Obama is not going to win Republican voters (unless Ron Paul is nominated…to which he will get some cross-overs). In fact looking at the electoral college, I don’t see how Obama can win period. Latest polling against Romney and Gingrich (who are currently beating each other up, thus driving their respective popularity down), shows him LOSING by 3 to 5 points, and worse barely cracking 45%.

Ron Paul has the same international policy as the Republicans of the 1930′s…its called being an isolationist. Its fair game. But its not a winner. Americans are not thrilled about war, but they sure as heck don’t want a leader who has (and this is not misquoting) concluded that 9-11 was based on our international actions. This is not dissimilar to the international views of Reverand Wright. While I respect Paul’s views, and in fact agree with some of what he states. His platform is not going to net him the votes necessary to win the election. Nominating Paul is like putting a square peg in a circle whole. The left won’t vote for him because he wants limited government. Those on the right or in the middle will be concerned that we would be electing Reverand Wright as our Commander in chief. Its a loser either way.

Frankly it looks like its Gingrich or Romney. I was and still am hoping Santorum could take off…or perhaps Perry wows us in the last debate. But truth be told it doesn’t look that way. Real shame that Tim Pawlenty dropped out…he would have ran away with this.

No matter what the question, he stammers around incoherently, eventually focusing on abolishing the Fed and returning to the gold standard. He’s like watching Admiral Stockdale babble on in previous VP debates…the guy isn’t even lucid half the time. That said,he’d STILL BE A FAR BETTER PRESIDENT THAN THE MARXIST IN OFFICE!

The Watcher December 15, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Compiling a list of republican emails is not so they can convince republicans to vote for Obama. Its so they can tamper in the republican primary by sending emails promoting the republican they think they can beat, or simply dividing the republicans further, or suppression. And since there is no democrat primary, many states that don’t have party registration will see democrats voting in the republican primaries to queer the vote. The statists of the Obama camp believe that they know better than all of you, and that self-mandate empowers them to win at any cost, so they can control your lives in their ‘enlightened’ way.

Reply

Larson December 14, 2011 at 11:52 am

It’s a weak approach without getting any approval or avoid accusation of accessing private citizens information without consent. What do you do when you receive an e-mail that states if you delete this or do not respond we have the reserve the right to contact you in other ways? Do not trust a group that always has to go through the backdoor to get their business done

Reply

Jim December 14, 2011 at 12:25 pm

Yes, but the problem is you’ll get an email that will look like it’s coming from a Republican or independent group and it will contain information intended to damage a Republican candidate to skew you to another Republican candidate which Obama thinks he has a better chance of beating.

Appears that autocorrect is at fault here. However, you are correct that our education system is far from effective. Makes you wonder how liberals escape criticism. It is their policies, leadership and agenda that has been guiding schools from kindergarten to university level for decades.

As far as this fascist attempt at collecting “enemies” (Obama’s description of opposing party members) email addresses, I find it another attempt at intimidation in line with the Attachwatch website and Hoffa’s “take the son’s a bitches” speech. I find the acceptance of this type of behavior further evidence of the left’s inability to agree to disagree.

Krysta, dear, simply referring to a period of history during which anti-semitism was displayed does not make one anti-semitic. If you refer to the period in U.S. history during which slavery was legal, does that make you a slave owner, or a supporter of slavery? Logic, please.

The point that GRAM was making (and that you clearly missed) is that NAZI Germany also used tactics to gather intel on the location and contact information of Jews, in order to compile a list and make it easier to hunt them all down. There were even ‘rewrds’ for turning in intel to the authorities pertaining to the whereabouts or other ‘useful’ informattion concerning Jews, both before it became ugly and then after. It is simply somthing to consider, as history does repeat itself, dear.

Now this little circus performance in and of itself is nothing too crazy, but perhaps it would do some good for your perception of reality if you spent a little time researching just how much data-mining the feds are doing and what they’re looking for. I’ll give you a good starting point : check out the ‘signs of a possible domestic terrorist’ posted by Homeland Security.

Perhaps you should start with yourself. No comment is as ignorant and misinformed as stating “no difference between him and obama”.

We wouldn’t have Obamacare if anyone other than Obama was elected.

All the GOP candidates right now want to overturn Obamacare.

The list of differences is endless.

Gingrich’s position on illegals is much more nuanced than you’re saying, he’s not pro cap and trade, and his wife wasn’t dying. He’s also vastly different from Obama about tax. Policy, economic policy and foreign affairs. All of which you’d know if you followed the debates rather than the Ron Paul – Michele Bachmann talking points.

It’s certainly in a very gray legal area. It’s one thing to get names off of voter rolls. It’s quite another to ask people to sign up others without their consent. Yes, people send e-cards to each other through on-line services so I suspect that would be the argument here. However, intent is commonly invoked in the interpretation of the law and the intent here is spelled out quite clearly: “[H]ave a little fun at the expense of a Republican in your life…”

They’re basically advocating harassment by signing up people to receive something they didn’t consent to. Orwellian concerns aside, this form of incitement by the administration is beyond the pale.
