What happened to Team Obama?

How did they go from masterminds of two fraudulent hoaxes successful presidential campaigns to two of the most ridiculed ad campaigns, ever?

As you probably recall, the geniuses over at Organizing for America (the rebranded successor to Obama for America, the campaign organization for Obama in ’08) rolled out “The Life of Julia” before the 2012 election. In a set of slides documenting the fictitious life of a hypothetical woman, Julia, from age 3 to age 67, it depicted how Obama’s policies “help” her throughout her life, as opposed to Mitt Romney, whose policies would “hurt” her.

For example:


But it was immediately mocked.

Even Uber-Libs Mika Brzezinski and Donny Deutsch were critical of the whole concept.

Then, two weeks ago, OFA came out with an even more absurd idea.

Called “Pajama Boy,” it featured a young man in pajamas (A onesie! For grown men! Who knew?) sipping cocoa.



The goal was to get people talking about Obamacare.

And it did.

Although not in the way that OFA intended:

And, here’s one from TAM Rickh:


Pajama Boy even got photoshopped into history:

So, here’s my question:

When OFA came up with this lame idea, what were they thinking?

But I think I know the answer:

They weren’t.

    It would be funny if it weren’t so tragic.

    “They” were thinking that “we” don’t LOL! Great reminder Shifra, can’t wait to see what else they come up with.

    It is sickening that this clown is the president of OUR country.

  4. MaryVal says:

    OFA came up with Julia and Pajama Boy, because OFA members *ARE* Julia and Pajama Boy. Everybody they know are Julia and Pajama Boy: their family, their friends, their co-workers. Obama could be the model for Pajama Boy. Entitlement weenies. Anti-men, anti-masculinity.

    Shifra, is it wrong of me to laugh & laugh? How twisted can things get???? I can just
    picture a caption “BUT WAIT…You can dial 888-123-4567 & have a personal conversation with Pajama Boy. Your charge for this call is actually a tax deductible conversation. So, warm yourself up a cup of hot chocolate & dial on in, Pajama Boy is waiting to hear from you!”

    Hahaha! That was pretty funny stuff, Shifra. What’s with the girlie-man thing anyway? The “feminization” of the American male. Is that how OBummer spends the cold days of December? Puke.
