Organizing for Obama ...

Once again, the Obama organization is attempting to use the power of community organizing and the Internet to convince those who supported Barack Obama in the last presidential election.

Those who believed that Obama was a post-partisan politician, different from the rest, and a someone who would restore our hopes and bring about a restorative change. No more Washington insiders, no more corruption, waste and fraud. No special interests and lobbyists. No more divisive politics that divided, rather than united, the American people.

Unfortunately, we have all see what Obama has actually accomplished since he was elected.

Implemented socialist policies that promote the “collective” over the “individual.”

Promoted the interests of the socialistic public employee unions to insure that the public does not even have a seat at the bargaining table. These are the very same unions which threaten to bankrupt our municipalities, our states and the federal government -- all by promoting a privileged political class whose jobs are guaranteed for life and with ever-increasing pay, healthcare, perks plus a cushy retirement unavailable to those in the private sector who are urged to sacrifice their own well-being and that of their families to support this cadre of Obama supporters. Obama even attempted to circumvent the use of secret ballots in union organizing activities.

Obama attempted to take control over your personal lives by implementing a draconian healthcare program which would result in denials, delays and death.

Obama attempted to take over control over our economy by regulating the generation, transmission and usage of energy in America through his global warming cap-and-trade scheme.

To this very day, Obama is catering to the illegal aliens who are draining the public and social resources meant for legal, law-abiding citizens. Supporting sanctuary cities who refuse to deport illegal aliens who commit egregious crimes.

Obama has welcomed communists and socialists into the White House and placed them in positions of great power – bypassing the Senate confirmation process and allowing them to form a “shadow government” which rivals authorized cabinet-level positions.

Obama continues to play the race card and appears to support race-baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

He is pandering to the entitlement culture using lies about cuts to entitlements.

He is lying and scaring senior citizens about a loss of Medicare as he defunded the Medicare Advantage program by $500 BILLION dollars.

So why should we re-elect Obama to finish what he started: placing the progressive democrats in positions of perpetual political power where they can reign, not govern, over us all? 

Obama is trying to sucker you into your own self-destruction. In his own words …


Friend --

You've been hearing from Messina about our overall strategy and what's at stake in this election. My job as the Battleground States Director is to report back to you on the nuts and bolts of what we're building in communities across the country.

I want to take you through it in detail, so you can understand how to get involved and shape our organization where you live.

We're going to build it from the ground up. And we're going to use this summer to roll out our team model and organizing structure through grassroots planning sessions in homes and by videoconference.

Here's the full briefing – <link deleted> --  and if you're willing to get involved now and be part of the organization in your community, let me know:

Some of these planning sessions are already under way, and we're starting to get some feedback. I got one email from a supporter named Steven, who hadn't been involved at all since 2008, and only went to his grassroots planning session on a whim.

As a result, he's all-in -- he wants want to get involved fast, and also has all sorts of new ideas for how he can apply his skills better this time and which friends and colleagues he can reach out to about joining the campaign.

The subject line of his email about the meeting was "Inspiring night."
This kind of organization-building isn't just an electoral strategy -- it's a reflection of what we believe in as voters and citizens. It's a commitment to the kind of politics that begins in backyards and living rooms and empowers every single American to get involved and organize for the changes they want to see.

At a moment when it feels like the only thing that separates our opponents is how quickly they want to end Medicare as we know it, winning this way -- driven locally, powered by the grassroots -- will be a rebuke to those in Washington who still think that people across the country don't have a seat at the table where decisions are made.
I'm asking you to pull up a chair. If you're willing to get involved now, at this crucial point in the campaign, let me know here:< link deleted>

P.S. -- If you don't have time to watch the video, here's a quick rundown on where we stand:

-- Messina mentioned the one-on-one initiative last month. We're going to talk with every person who volunteered or made a donation last time. So the staff and I started making calls and meeting with people one-on-one. And then those people started having their own one-on-ones with others. So far more than 75,000 individual conversations have happened across the country. The results are a massive army of newly energized volunteers, plus thousands of pages of ideas and feedback that will inform how we shape our organization nationally.

-- Grassroots planning sessions are under way across the country -- we've had dozens so far with more than a hundred still to come. Everyone has been or will be invited to one.

-- You heard about our Summer Organizer Program when we asked you to help recruit them. Well, there are now hundreds across the country, and they start next week. We were pleasantly surprised that the number of applicants far exceeded what we saw when we launched this program in 2008, and you'll be hearing more about them -- and in many cases from them directly -- in the coming months.

Bottom line …

Obama is an empty-suit politician who has been caught in a number of lies … and is trying to bring about redistributive change to bankrupt America and bring them under the control over the international socialist regime.

Remember when you vote – Obama has done little or nothing of note; not that he does not take credit for everything and anything positive. Throwing his political baggage under the bus as he attempts to win our vote and a chance to complete his nefarious work.

Don’t let him succeed. Elect and honest broker for “We the People.” A constitutional conservative who will view America as an exceptional place – unlike Obama.

Vote as if your life depended on it, because this time it surely does.
