I had a firsthand experience today with Organizing for America, the Obama re-election/community organizing group out of the DNC. While pumping gas at a Circle K in Durham, a well dressed young woman of 18 or so walked up to me and asked if I’m registered to vote “at your correct address.” I said yes and asked her who she represents. She said Organizing for America. I then told her I do not support President Obama’s policies. That’s when she turned around and walked away, which is a shame. I wanted to ask her why she supports economic policies that will drown her in debt and sentence her to poor job prospects for years to come. To her credit, she was polite, but obviously misinformed about the burden her generation will bear. And that is quite sad.
