So just days after President Obama announced his retrograde Republican attack on working families employed by the federal government, Obama's campaign organization, Organizing For America, wants to know what we think about the job it's done.
Given that Obama's presidency has increasingly become a sick joke on the people who supported him during the primary, I felt this survey would be a decent venue for a Purely Symbolic and Totally Ineffectual protest against the biggest disappointment of my political life (inb4 you accuse me of only having paid attention to politics since Obama came along, I've followed every election since 1996 extremely closely; before that I was twelve).
Yes, I know this is a little unfair. OFA has little, if any, power to affect Obama's decisions, wake him up to how he's been repeatedly played by Republicans, or warn him that if he continues down the path of appeasing the GOP while ignoring his base that he will become the worst remembered one-term president since Jimmy Carter (and at least he had a major Mid-East peace deal). As I said, this is a Purely Symbolic protest with zero chance of any positive effect, not unlike Obama's attack on federal workers for Purely Symbolic reasons.
Anyway, below are the relevant portions of the survey; omitted is everything else that didn't matter.
How do you feel about Organizing for America?
Negatively  2 3 4 5 Positively
What were your expectations for OFA in this election?
Low  2 3 4 5 High Expectations
Do you feel OFA met those expectations? Yes
Please Explain: Really, it's not your fault President Obama spent as much time spitting on progressive activists as he did trying to pander to Republicans, but for the purposes of this survey, I'm going to answer like it is.
How effective do you think OFA was at communicating the importance of this election?
Ineffective  2 3 4 5 Effective
What resources would have been helpful to have from OFA that you didn't have?
A president who doesn't act like the people who elected him are an annoyance. Or some kind of robot.
What are some effective ways to go about achieving these goals?
Step 1. Get President Obama to stop pandering to Republicans
Step 2. Get President Obama to stop purposing Republican ideas like spending freezes and pay freezes that hurt working people and destroy the economy.
Step 3. ????
Step 4. Profit
Do you have any other feedback you would like to share about your experience during the Vote 2010 election season?
The 2010 election is the single most depressing election of my life, and that includes 2000. Never have I been so unmoved to vote or so disgusted with the Democratic leadership as I was during this cycle. It seems President Obama is more concerned with appeasing congressional Republicans than standing up for working families and affecting the agenda he promised the activists who helped elect him. As a result, now Obama has a lot more Republicans to spend time appeasing, which he seems only too happy to do.
I fucking lol'd.
Do you have any other feedback you'd like to share with OFA, or thoughts about OFA volunteer activity you'd like to see in 2011?
YOU'RE ALL WORKING FOR HUBERT HUMPHREY
