Obama Campaign: Supporters Should Snitch On Their Republican Friends

You can't make this stuff up:
The Obama presidential campaign is launching an effort [Read that link! Gotta see it to believe it!] 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 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....Just imagine if this were happening in reverse: GOP contenders "having a little fun" at the expense of the private email addresses of their Democrat associates!

This kind of nonsense cheapens the campaign and election processes. Demeans them, even.

And what kind of list will the Democratic Party then have? A list of dissenters to torment or, possibly, to "investigate."

  2. That does fit into the larger scheme of things prosecuting US citizens without due process accorded by the Constitution. I'm sure we can return the favor if it starts to materialize.

    Getting the word out here is a start.

  5. Check out my post today at Infidel Bloggers Alliance. The ego of the man is insufferable!

    No wonder that Queen Michelle left for Hawaii without him. Sheesh.

  6. This kind of politicking that the Obama crowd has proposed ruins and defiles the Christmas season.

    Period.

  7. Comrades! From the BBC 19 July 2006

    "Officials in Romania have revealed that the Communist-era secret police, the Securitate, used children as young as twelve to spy on parents, teachers and others."

    Wasn't Watergate a low tech way to get information on the Democrats? And clumsily executed at that...

    Maybe Democrat operatives can do some dumpster diving as well. If Republicans had said, send us information about your Democrat friends, all hell would break loose with the national media.

    Slippery slope, slippery slope. Obama thinks he'll rope a dope.

    Sad when you can't tout your own record.

  8. Alligator,
    Politics is a dirty business all around.

    We have no statesmen to speak of!

  9. At best, this is in very, very poor taste. At worst, like you said, Obama is collecting a list of dissenters with his useful idiot spies.
