Community Organizer Obama to army of youth activists: ‘Go out and promote my website’

21st Century Wire says…

When a government project looks certain to fail, then the answer is to hype it. When the hype fails, then try to play the politics. When the politics are failing, then lie to the people. And when the lies run out, then what? Send in the youth. Send in the Community Organizers…

Luckily for President Obama, besides reading from a teleprompter and swinging a golf club, his other main and only identifiable skill is that of a ‘Community Organizer’.

Saul Alinsky disciple Obama held a “White House Youth Summit” and delivered a party motivational talk, where young socialist street teams were urged ‘not to give up’ on promoting his (unaffordable) Care Act, and getting as many unsuspecting Americans to enroll via the HealthCare.gov.

If that’s not enough to set off the red star alarm, he’s calling his street army,The Young Invincibles”.

In general, community organizing campaigns will advocate for a positive – but also oppose a negative. In this case, the negative is not signing up, so fear is required to make that part work. Americans haven’t yet heard all the horror stories to come in this department.

Obama urges on young activists; 3-day HealthCare.gov enrollment hits 56,000

President Obama urged a group of young activists Wednesday not to give up on promoting his signature health-care law, as enrollment picked up on HealthCare.gov.

Roughly 27,000 Americans signed up for insurance on the federal exchange on Tuesday, according to internal figures, bringing the site’s three-day enrollment total to 56,000. That figure is more than double the number who enrolled online in the entire month of October, which was almost 27,000.

Buoyed by the Web site’s improved performance, Obama and his aides have been touting the importance of signing up for plans before Dec. 23, the deadline for obtaining insurance scheduled to start Jan. 1.

Obama told the group at the White House Youth Summit, which was designed to mobilize support for the health law, that he needed them “to spread the word about how the Affordable Care Act really works, what its benefits are, what its protections are and, most importantly, how people can sign up.”

“Look, you know, I do remember what it’s like being 27 or 28, and aside from the occasional basketball injury, you know, most of the time I kind of felt like I had nothing to worry about,” the president said. “Of course that’s what most people think until they have something to worry about, but at that point, oftentimes it’s too late.”

Many young people remain reluctant to buy a health plan on the state and federal exchanges. A new poll by the Harvard Institute of Politics found that 29 percent of young, uninsured Americans say they are leaning toward enrolling, with 41 percent saying it’s a 50-50 proposition.

Young Invincibles executive director Aaron Smith, whose group is working to get young people insured, said the fact that the summit’s attendees included DJs and young entrepreneurs shows that the White House is looking for messengers “who are not in the political arena, but have an entry point into young people and know how to communicate to young people.”
