I am PUNY, hear me ROAR!!!!
Huffington Post reader Andrew Rohrberger (via an Off The Bus submission) grabbed a copy of the audio of the “Run Hillary 2012” robocalls that are reportedly being made in an attempt to persuade the secretary of state to run for the White House.
The script leads one to believe we’d be living in a veritable utopia if only Clinton had won in 2008.
America would be better off today if Hillary Clinton was our president. The Wall Street robber barons would be jailed, young people could afford college and find jobs and six million homeowners wouldn’t face foreclosure. We need to change our course. Please sign our petition to draft Hillary Clinton for president.
Clinton’s not running, of course. And it’s remarkable to see that people are still holding out hope that she might change her mind. That said, the call represents an extreme version of the type of buyer’s remorse that Obama faces in the months ahead.
Sure, Sam, some disgruntled and highly gullible self-proclaimed lefties are ripe for the
ratfucking picking. From the Left:
I can’t say I am surprised by any of this. President Obama’s support is tepid at best and among some demographic groups, nonexistent. If there was ever an election campaign ripe for a third party challenger, I believe 2012 is it.
If Hillary decides to jump in at the 11th hour, she will have my support and the support of my Blog.
Well, polls this far out are pretty meaningless, but about that “tepid support.” Do you mean among Democrats?
The narrative that Obama is losing the base was debunked by a new CNN poll which found that support for the renomination of the president has tied an all-time high.
The CNN poll found that overall 81% of those surveyed thought that the Democratic Party should nominate Obama again. Only 18% of respondents thought that the Democratic Party should go with a different candidate.
Aided by comparison to the vastly unpopular Congress, Barack Obama has advanced to a 49 percent job approval rating in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll - his best showing since spring, and one that, if it holds, that may put his re-election prospects back within reach.
Still, since the Republicans seem determined to reenact the 2008 Democratic primary, it’s only fair and balanced to stage a repeat of Operation Chaos 2008 on the Democratic side. All is not lost, as some of the posts in Run Hillary 2012.net’s “Join the conversation” section are a hoot (and could probably be made even hootier *hint* *hint*):
A Robo Call Message

Here’s my message to you.
I am going to find out who is beyond this insignificant website and make sure your Robo Calls are shut down.
So you can SHOVE your childish strategy, SHOVE your interrupting me and my life, and SHOVE your freaking ridiculous message about Clinton.

You will never get my vote. Robocalling to cry over your spilt milk is to stoop to R tactics.

What else would you expect from Republicans? They know they stand very little chance of getting anyone in their clown car elected President so they hope to disrupt the Democrats by planting false flags like this crud.
How about you list all your donors and their contributions? I bet there would be some familiar names & no friends of the Democratic Party.
Thanks for the robocall, y’all

It really opened my eyes. How stupid I was to support Obama! We all know how much the Republicans love and respect Hillary Clinton. If she’d been elected in 2008, everything the Democratic Party tried to do would have had enthusiastic support from the GOP!
Ah well, no use crying for what might have been. It’s a shame we elected a half-Kenyan usurper who can’t even spell “American” without a teleprompter in 2008, but in 2012 we can fix that mistake.
Keep robocalling, guys! Help America wake up to the truth!
Apparently, this is a multi-state campaign. Published reports from the New York Daily News and Politico say the calls have been received in New York, North Carolina, and Ohio.
And now California…
Which may put a stop to this nonsense pretty quick, because:
The California Public Utilities Code specifically makes robo calls that are not preceded by a live human operator illegal.
Of course, when it comes to the old ODS and manic progressives, there’s one born every minute. I mean, some useful idiots are still falling for Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen’s schtick.
