The BEE MAD @ THE GOP Internet campaign was an effort to harness the political power of the unemployed to defeat those politicians who had turned their backs on the millions of Americans without jobs. The campaign began in July 2012 with the goal of helping the unemployed target their anger and frustration about the current jobs crisis where it rightfully belonged: squarely at the feet of Republican legislators in Washington who turned their backs on the plight of the unemployed.
The campaign was designed to highlight the Grand Old Party’s dependence on Super PACS, its addiction to corporate campaign contributions and lockstep determination to block any legislation that extended a helping hand to the jobless.
Thus, the Battle Royal was joined! The Army of American Worker Bees…the backbone of the US economy versus The GOP…the Greedy Obstructionist PAC-A-DERMS! And their legions of lobbyists and special interests!
