George Herbert Walker and son, George W., Bush help Obama's service to government...
Washington D.C) -- President Obam a called on all Americans to help in our nation's recovery by volunteering in their communities this summer in a video message released today by the White House and the Corporation for National and Community Service.
The President's call to summer service launches United We Serve, a sustained effort to expand the size and impact of volunteer efforts in addressing tough challenges facing the nation. The United We Serve initiative kicks off on June 22, and runs for 81 days through a new National Day of Service and Remembrance on September 11.
This summer, I'm calling on all of you to make volunteerism and community service part of your daily life and the life of this nation, said President Obama in the video. And when I say all, I mean everyone young and old, from every background, all across this country. We need individuals, community organizations, corporations, foundations, and our government to be part of this effort.
To make it easy for Americans to get involved, the President is urging Americans to visit Serve.gov, a website managed by the Corporation for National and Community Service. Visitors to Serve.gov can type in their zip code to find local volunteer opportunities, recruit volunteers by posting their organization's projects, or get ideas for creating their own projects with friends, families, and neighbors.
The President has made a bold call to service at a time of great need and Americans are ready to respond, said Nicola Goren, the Corporation's Acting CEO. Through United We Serve and Serve.gov, we hope to engage millions of Americans in service this summer and beyond.
I got excited when I thought I heard Obama was throwing out the first bitch tonight.
Gotta get the wax out of my ears.
Sorry, the rest of my life belongs to ME.
LOL! Ha-ha, good one!
Oh, I thought Obama felt Americans should spend the summer
going on expensive dates to New York or taking family
vacations to Paris and London and buying expensive clothes
for their privately educated children. My bad.
This, IIRC, from a Marxist who gave barely a farthing to charity (until his parsimony was recognized as a political liability); and who has done no legitimate volunteering himself.
Please feel welcome to correct if it's in error.
National Day of Service and Remembrance? How about National Day of Screaming Rage? I expect Obama will want us to focus more on the Service and forget about the Remembrance.
I ave to wash my hair that day.
Maybe the Obamas will eat at home this week and donate the expense of 1 night's dinner for four at the 4 Seasons.
that’s funny as hell, right there!
Oh, CRAP! I’m through being surprised at anything anymore.
Seeming to play nice while getting
his cronies to do his dirty work on GW
I’ve been serving in my own way for a couple of decades. My recent causes include my church, Toys for Tots, and a small private school. I cringe at every Barack Obama radio spot. He doesn’t give a damn about my causes. Statistically conservatives are more generous with their tie and treasure then leftists.

Like this slug is going to give up his golf games and his basketball games and his pedicures and smoke times...
And it doesn’t matter how badly his war in Afghanistan spirals out of control-
Barry ain’t giving up his beach time this summer.
He’s going to frolic on Martha’s Vineyard posing topless for the media
and licking ice cream cones.
If Obama wants community service-
he should greet the increasing number of flag draped coffins
returning to Dover on his watch.
Of course that should read “time and treasure”.
He should greet the coffins returning to Dover.
