Obama and his legion of sock puppets

A sock puppet, in the context of online communications, is a fake identity created to promote someone or something through blogs, wikis, forums or social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter.

Fake identities are created to circumvent site bans, increase product sales, improve or tarnish reputations, spread disinformation and stifle dissent, among other possibilities.

Sometimes people create their own sock puppets; sometimes they hire others to do so. Someone hired to create a sock puppet is referred to as a meat puppet, an Internet shill or a cyber shill. The use of a sock puppet to artificially stimulate demand for a product or service is known as sock puppet marketing.

Okay, now that we all know the general term and definition of sock puppets, we can move on. So what Obama does is call out his minions and re-broadcast his message through a legion of useful idiots, aka sock puppets. Sure they may be real people, but there is nothing real or original about what they say. There was nothing original about Obama either.

Want a great example of this just tour the twitter universe at a given time. After the chief loon utters one of his verbal commands, you see them scurrying to place his words into the dialogue wherever, and I mean wherever, they can. Don’t believe me? Just go to any popular representative or Senator’s page — mostly those on the Republican side — and see for yourself. All the talking points boiled down to useful twitter-verse lingo. It doesn’t matter what they reply to, the same talking points. Mostly off topic, makes no difference. They just spout toxic verbiage whereever they feel like taking a dump.

I am talking about the stupid subject of sock puppets only because of their narrative. They are obnoxious. They don’t have to know or understand what they are saying, and chances are they don’t want to. Remember how “Mic Check” was used in OWS dialogue. (if one can call that dialogue) They just offer a mouthpiece to project Obama’s sound-bite agenda. It’s simple. He’s the ventriloquist, they are the puppets. But they can also email and call reps, per orders, or whatever happens to be on Obama’s menu.

There is little difference from one to another. Reply to any of them and they block you and call you a troll. They have their too-cute-by-half hashtags and contacts on Twitter. They are there so you cannot ignore them. Of course, it’s right up Obama’s alley with all those fictional followers he and the First Twit have. These are just self activating bots.

Return of the money changers

While most of America wants to see the money changers out of the Capitol temple, this president ups the ante to bring in more of them. Then, no doubt, he will complain about the money and influence in politics.

Obama thinks what we need is more money and special interest influence. His rebooted campaign raises so many questions on so many levels.

NYT: Obama’s Backers Seek Big Donors to Press Agenda

President Obama’s political team is fanning out across the country in pursuit of an ambitious goal: raising $50 million to convert his re-election campaign into a powerhouse national advocacy network, a sum that would rank the new group as one of Washington’s biggest lobbying operations.

But the rebooted campaign, known as Organizing for Action, has plunged the president and his aides into a campaign finance limbo with few clear rules, ample potential for influence-peddling, and no real precedent in national politics.

In private meetings and phone calls, Mr. Obama’s aides have made clear that the new organization will rely heavily on a small number of deep-pocketed donors, not unlike the “super PACs” whose influence on political campaigns Mr. Obama once deplored.

At least half of the group’s budget will come from a select group of donors who will each contribute or raise $500,000 or more, according to donors and strategists involved in the effort.

Unlike a presidential campaign, Organizing for Action has been set up as a tax-exempt “social welfare group.” That means it is not bound by federal contribution limits, laws that bar White House officials from soliciting contributions, or the stringent reporting requirements for campaigns. In their place, the new group will self-regulate.

Officials said it would voluntarily disclose the names of large donors every few months and would not ask administration personnel to solicit money, though Obama aides will probably appear at some events.

“No precedent”? – That is until Obama created one, another historic first for the Radical in Chief. He sure is working at leaving a lasting legacy/stain on our nation.

The Left’s Soros-funded influence is not enough. They need more big money and big donors. Sure it will be the largest lobby and influence in Washington, what would you expect from a usurping dictator?

And for giving the big money, get big meetings with the president. Misinformation Secretary, Jay Carney claims this is not selling influence. How is it not? Officials appearing at events are not soliciting money either. (pardon my Casablanca chuckle)

Yet another conflict the media can pretend does not exist. The Obama Alinskyites can trot out their “the American people don’t care about any of this” excuse
