  •  OFA did it's job very well. The 2010 (0+ / 0-)

    elections were not OFA's responsibility, and the 2014 elections will not be either.

    OFA could help the State and Local Democratic party organizations by making available OFA databases at an affordable rate, even though they are not required to.

    •  This is why I did not give one cent to OFA this (6+ / 0-)

      time.  I'm a Progressive Democrat.  I gave to Progressive Democrats, and I gave to Democratic Party organizations (like Move On) that support Progressive Democrats in EVERY ELECTION, not just one election for one candidate every four years.  Without a strong Democratic Party, having Obama in the White House for 8 years is pointless and largely, fruitless.  I had no sense that Obama built anything to leave behind when he failed to use OFA in 2010, and that is why he may serve as President for 8 years and leave the Democratic Party worse off instead of stronger.  He needs to run against the obstructionist Republican Party and for Progressive Democrats in 2014 just as hard as he ran for President in 2012.  Then he might be able to really leave a legacy behind that lasts well beyond his time in office in the last 2 years he is in office.  Much of what he as accomplished could be quickly reversed with a Republican in the White House, and that will happen without long term party building.  Doesn't a community organizer recognize that?

      America needs a UNION NEWS channel. We (unions) have the money, we have the talent. Don't buy 30 second time slots on corporate media, union leaders; fund your own cable news channel and tell the real story 24/7/365
