Campaign ads spammed to your cell phone. I never knew the future would be so irritating.

It could be worse, they could be spamming your cell while calling your landline and sending you mail-in flyers. All at the SAME time!!!

I wonder if the GOP understands that being annoying isn't going to help them very much on election day...

Hmmm, which party would be more inclined to do this. The one who's base is already motivated or the one who's getting desperate?

Sorry Barry, you're goin down.

Talking about rape doesn't help yet they keep doing it. Lying about thing like Chrysler's Jeep expansion in China, then doubling down shouldn't help either, yet here we are. There's enough misinformed/uninformed/stupid people in the electorate that Romney is competitive, Akin may win the MO Senate seat and Stephen King (R-dogfight) is well ahead of Vilsack.

weird. By now, the Democratic voter lists have weeded out the non-Democrat voters and are focused on democrats and undecideds. you didn't perhaps tell a Democratic phone bank that you were an undecided voter did you? that would get you put on the call back list for sure.

It's a sad day when you suspect it isn't the Republicans because it's not racist enough.

2012-10-31 09:16:08 AM  
quite simply, this sort of tactic is sheer desperation. Look, the Obama campaign has had us phone banking and canvassing doors since mid september. every day we narrow down the phone lists, screening out GOP voters and focusing on getting undecideds to switch votes to Obama and getting the Democratic voters to commit to voting on election day. that's a LOT of work but we're almost to the point where our call lists are around 90%-ish accurate and up to date. so we're not wasting time/effort phone blasting to people who aren't going to vote OR who are gonna vote Republican.

Then along comes this mass txt phone blast from the Romney campaign. if they're sending text messages to people who aren't Republicans then that tells me they're working off VERY inaccurate voter lists. they haven't put in the time and effort to narrow down their voter rolls, organize people to get Republicans to the polls on election day. it's sloppy and they're paying the price for NOT building an effective campaign organization down on the ground where it matters. they needed to be doing that work over a month ago if they planned to be ready for election day/go time.

Being annoying has been their bread and butter for a long while, why would that change now.
 
2012-10-31 09:25:04 AM  
I got a text message to "pls vt Rmny on elctn day" and I have to say, it was very convincing. Romney really showed he can text message better than Obama. That's going to matter when Iran keeps calling us and giggling when America answers the phone, then hanging up. Romney would just text Iran about what a biatch she is and avoid war entirely. Thank you Romney for keeping us safe.
 
2012-10-31 09:25:55 AM  

While several people on social media sites angrily posted that the messages were coming from Republican Mitt Romney, there is no indication that the messages were sanctioned or produced by his campaign.

I am still shocked that you're volunteering for the Obama campaign. Am I right in thinking that it's not so much that you've changed, but that Romney, and the current GOP, are just that terrible?

A last minute, pathetic cell phone spam-a-thon of propaganda from the GOP?

Wow, desperate much?

"Obama is using your tax dollars to fund Planned Parenthood and abortions. Is that right"

No, that's just another Republican lie like the "stole 716 billion" lie because lies and identity politics based on bigotry are really all that party have left.

Any more stupid questions?

the Republicans really are that bad. I believe them when they say that they intend to govern the country via 'biblical principal'. In effect, the GOP plans to run this country as a theocracy....and I do not want to live in a theocratic society. I don't want to run even the RISK of living in that sort of society. So I've no choice but to vote Democrat.

So I assume you have the same ire for Obama. Obama did claim that 800k US jobs would be lost due to territorial taxation by creating jobs "overseas"... Even politifact states that those jobs are not from a loss in the US. Oh wait, you only care about false implications when Romney does it. Should I talk about Obama's 5 Trillion dollar Romney tax plan that never existed? You see... both sides have been guilty, both sides of doubled and tripled down. Yet you show ire for only one side. Funny that.

"Voting for Obama means voting for same-sex marriage," I'm pro gay marriage.

"Obama is using your tax dollars to fund Planned Parenthood and abortions. Is that right" I'm pro women's health and anti-abstinence faith based family planning.

"VP Biden mocks a fallen Navy Seal during memorial. Our military deserves better." GOP distortion of the truth

So lies and appeals to bible pounders.......does the GOP have nothing substantial?
