Moments ago, American Seniors Advocates President Randy Lewis responded to PJ Media via phone regarding the White House’s not-so-subtle attack on Bob Woodward’s age:

David Plouffe is an ass. No one is ever too old to contribute to the national dialogue. And Bob Woodward and his distinguished career deserves more respect from someone with so little professional achievement.

If unfamiliar with ASA, they are allied with the American Seniors Association. From their website:

Welcome to the new choice and the new voice for America’s seniors. American Seniors Association is the fastest growing seniors’ advocacy in the nation and an emerging conservative voice on the national issues that impact seniors.

At American Seniors, we believe that America’s seniors deserve respect, admiration and support for the contributions they made throughout their lives building families and the enhancing the quality of American life.

We believe that you deserve choices when selecting who best represents your interests in Washington, D.C.; and we believe you deserve choices when selecting benefits that help you live a healthier and wealthier life.

We also believe that our members are individuals. That is why our benefits are structured to allow you to make choices based on your individual needs.

If you believe in individual liberty and the importance of having choices in your life, then you are an “American Senior.”

During the first campaign, Obama and his team threw two reporters off the plane for failing to write what are now known as "Plouffe pieces" only about Teh One.

It appears five years later...they won't even stop to allow the plane to land before doing the same today.

"David Plouffe is an ass."

Isn't that one of the prerequisites for membership in Obama's retinue of advisors - the second coming of the bar scene from Star Wars!

I just got an AARP membership offer yesterday. Gulp. Gonna send it back with a polite "no thank you. I oppose Obamacare."

I kicked AARP to the curb after their unabashed embrace of the idiotic Harry Belafonte, giving him an 'impact award'. WHAT? The guy had one effing hit in all his life - walks talks and acts like a full blown socialist. Is that a life with impact?

I emailed AARP - their response was "Well Harry does a little over the top stuff but its all harmless", a load of shuck n jive crap. Belafonte had ONE big hit many years ago. His only constant is he's black!

The ASA membership is as valuable as the AARP ever was - and doesn't have a political wing of their organization working against the good of their membership. AARP is slowly losing out - just not fast enough for me.

Bananas anyone?

Somehow the phrase "Chicago Thugs" pops into my mind. But, then, I'm getting older.

Thanks for stating what American Seniors says they are on their website. But what is American Seniors? I don't know anyone who has ever heard of this organization, much less anyone who belongs to it. They appear to be just another web-only front group for some libertarians or communists. As communists, or maybe socialists, or maybe just fascists, we should beware whatever this group is peddling.

American Seniors is what AARP was supposed to be before AARP became a front group for the Democratic Party.

Of course Plouffe would make disparaging comments about age. Seniors remember when education was not propaganda and America was great. The only way this administration can transform this country is to preach it's disinformation to the idiot populance we are turning out in public schools these days.

It's more than that.

The pitch that Obama has been using to America's young people is straight out of Logan's Run.

That is, America's young supporters are the Inevitable Wave of the Future, just waiting for the older generation to die off already so that the young people can take over.

Yep - and some day they'll look around and see a broke and broken country and wonder WTF happened.
