    Oh ... thanks for the question ... I'm glad you asked.

    It's not bake sales, PTA meetings, raffles, yard sales ... no that's a laymans version.

    Obama's version is the political version.



    Take a look at Obama's organizing and the description fits. Also ... notice the last sentence of the second quote. Ah yes once again ... Obama is promising everything but the kitchen sink to the middle class. he promises this after he thinks they are pissed off enough from bashing the Bush economic policies ... that Joe'Bama guy ... he's been plotting this campaign from an old glass house. If Alinsky was so correct ... why hasn't there been an alinskyfication of the country. :rolleyes:

    BTW ... FBN was the 1st to mention old saul in here ... right PC?

    You think you've made it, you're just a lucky man
    Guess who controls your destiny, fans
    But you diss 'em cos you think you're a star
    That attitude is rude, you won't get far
    Cos they'll turn on you quick, you'll drop like a brick
    Unemployment's where you'll sit
    No friends cos you dissed 'em too
    No money, no crew, you're through

    You played yourself...
    That's right, you played yourself...
    You played yourself...
    Yo, yo, you played yourself...

    This article is a goldmine ... it describes Obama at his speeches like the one today to a "T".

    So far he has made the wrong attack choices. He's playing right into what the Reps want.

    What should Obama be doing to combat Palin? I'm just curious.

    Re: So What is Community Organizing FBN?

    He obviously has to throw the Alinsky playbook out. But to do that he has to run on his experience ... but he can't McCain took that away from him with the Sarah Palin selection.

    If what I have read here is true he will go on to plan C and plan D. Plan C is already been launched as the campaign is going to go strong with women leaders from the democratic party making a push for him.

    Plan D ... I could be wrong but this plan will be used at some point is to compare Biden to Palin. The problem here is that Obama's ego is so big i doubt he will do this. Remember this is the guy that could have been the slam dunk President by picking Hillary. He picked Biden because Biden is a good tough guy who does not threaten Obama's messiah status.

    According to Alinsky the liberal masses are weak and will run ... i think the media is already doing this ... the bloggers will have to pull the train.

    :rofl: he has tried this already ... but Obama is one of those guys that just does not sell that he is mad.
    Rudy Giuliani also had this problem the other night. mcCain got the crowd worked up so much he pulled it off ... i was amazed ... mcCain is also not a guy who can pull off being mad ... he does not yell well. clinton was excellant at this ... he played the angry card the best i have ever seen after Reagan.

    Re: So What is Community Organizing FBN?

    BO actually wrote a chapter for an article in Ill issues called:

    "After Alinsky: Community Organizing in Illinois"


    A homage and where are we going to their fav commie Alinsky. No wonder there aren't many specifics from BO on his community org days. Let's not forget his work with ACORN the voter fraud group.

    Re: So What is Community Organizing FBN?

    Yeah, I have noticed the media. They are scared right now.

    Have also seen the "call to arms" for Obama women. Am wondering just how much Hillary will do.

    Plan D could work, but only if Palin falls on her face. I don't see that happening but who knows.

    And yeah, the Biden pick. He was so sure that he was had this all wrapped up that he didn't want to have to deal/share with Hillary. TBH, I thought he had it all wrapped up too. Go figure.

    Have always enjoyed that chapter written by Barack, explains what a CO is, what a CO does and what drives a person to take up this profession.. particularly a person who could have gone the corporate big bucks route.. instead he chose this.

    Not sure what you mean.. is it not correct that he was a co when he could have done something else?? Is capitalism wrong for him and ok for everyone else??

    Posting You Tube biased stuff means nothing..

    I think it's great what he did coming out of college.
    But he did it for a reason as he was doing it to furthur his career.
    So ... it was nice and compassionate ... but not on a Mother Theresa level. ;)

    Re: So What is Community Organizing FBN?

    I read in a few places that he has scripted his career very well ... almost to well. It's not out of the realm of possibility. He has made more than a few stops in his career with little accomplishment at each stop. Look, if that was his plan so be it ... his plan got him at the door of the dance but he rose so quick it is being used against him ... politics is brutal.

    Interesting theory, I just cannot conceptualize a 24-25 year old being able to script his life that well.. there are just too many variables... but that is my limitations..
