I was one who volunteered to "Get Out the Vote". I rang about 200 doorbells a day. I heard many jest about Obama's credentials as a "Community Organizer" and people laughed. Impressed? Yes! I was handed 10 sheets of data every morning. Names, Addresses, if they voted last election, Union member and if so, what union. I jotted down their approximate time they would vote and it they didn't vote by one hour later, someone called them. Very thorough. Elections are no longer won by only voting. If you want your candidate to win, you need to invest your time in your community and writing checks to the campaign! If you want to lose the election, sit back and pontificate on your thoughts on forums like this! Get involved!

The right doesn't have to be led to the polls like the idiots on the left do. They know to get up in the morning, eat breakfast and automatically do what the leftist have to prodded to do because they are indeed cattle.

The problem is that the criminal element in America is larger than the none criminal element. And when voting happens, Democrats have a greater chance of winning presidential elections because they come out more for general elections. Well, they are nagged more to come out for them, indeed.

The Democrat's community organizing is actually communist organizing. Since these people are often on the public dole they have more time to devote their lives to manipulating the criminal types to vote for more of other peoples

I'm for outlawing the coercion you folks call the ground game. If you take welfare handouts you shouldn't be able to participate in political campaigns (because they result in your attaining more stolen wealth for others).

But alas, the criminals have over run the place and civil war is liking the only way to stop it.

And they are more dedicated voters. They vote even when they are dead.

Well, that's pretty funny since MANY California registered republicans Never bothered to vote! You are a paranoid schizoid and if you think revolution is the way to go, you are even more comical than I initially thought.

BTW, I'm not a welfare recipient and my household will definitely be hit pretty hard with the upper 1% tax increase.

I'm from the 60's and I've been in politics for forty years! You are an idiot!

Buy your gold, store your food & water & MREs' & hide behind these stupid posts and you too will miss the fun of real American Politics! You totally miss the entire concept of Politics.

Go back & re-read our history of Adams, Jefferson, Washington, Frankin. What a pathetic role model you are for our future.
President Obama won re-election in part because his crack campaign team understood 2012 voters and put together an impressive ground operation. Out of professional respect, Republicans should refrain from cracking jokes about the president's erstwhile profession, community organizing. That's what I took away from recordings of Harvard's Institute of Politics quadrennial presidential campaign autopsy, which were released Monday.

Team Obama conducted nightly surveys of 9,000 likely voters in 10 battleground states. Because of those surveys, campaign manager Jim Messina told the gathering, "We thought we knew exactly where the electorate was." The campaign's targeting was so tight that national field...
