The Inside Story of MoveOn's Secret "Silver Bullet" to Deliver Victory for Obama | Mother Jones


....snipped....
On Wednesday, MoveOn unveiled a multimillion-dollar campaign to do just that. Between Tuesday and Election Day, the group will send 12 million "voter report cards" (PDF) designed by Oran to residents of presidential battleground states and other states with key Congressional races such as Connecticut and Massachusetts. The report cards grade recipients based on how often they've voted in the past, and—here's the kicker—the cards compare each individual's grade with the average grade of his or her neighbors. (Who you vote for is private information; how often you vote is public record.) "We've taken a social dynamic that gets people to turn out the lights, and we're using it to turn out the vote," says Justin Ruben, MoveOn's executive director.

I know, I know, Ted Cruz is the antichrist to many minds or if you are not religious minded, just plain evil. I think he just wants to win but, he can't because he won't be swayed from his core beliefs. Is he the best candidate ? Better than Rubio, I think. More principled. But, it's a losing battle, though I was intrigued by the vote in Iowa. We all know Cruz "won't play in Peoria...", i.e., California, New York, etc., and I think that is a shame.


Also, this was most interesting.

Ted Cruz's letters were far more outrageous.

There's a big difference.

And now Ted Cruz's campaign is telling voters that people have dropped out who haven't?

He's a scumbag.

Big difference.
The Moveon flyers showed a neighborhood average - no invasion of privacy.
Cruz's campaign posted the names of each neighbor and assigned each a score from A to F - grounds for lawsuits.

I disagree. He is just very hateable.....<s> As he is a very intelligent man and I think a decent man. He didn't kill anybody. HIs overzealous campaign workers sent out an unfortunate flyer. Are people in Iowa that stupid that this forced them to vote for Ted Cruz ?
