President Barack Obama to me:
This is the moment our movement was built for. For one month, the fight for health insurance reform leaves the backrooms of Washington, D.C., and returns to communities across America. Throughout August, members of Congress are back home, where the hands they shake and the voices they hear will not belong to lobbyists, but to people like you.
Home is where we're strongest. We didn't win last year's election together at a committee hearing in D.C. We won it on the doorsteps and the phone lines, at the softball games and the town meetings, and in every part of this great country where people gather to talk about what matters most. And if you're willing to step up once again, that's exactly where we're going to win this historic campaign for the guaranteed, affordable health insurance that every American deserves.
There are those who profit from the status quo, or see this debate as a political game, and they will stop at nothing to block reform. They are filling the airwaves and the internet with outrageous falsehoods to scare people into opposing change. And some people, not surprisingly, are getting pretty nervous. So we've got to get out there, fight lies with truth, and set the record straight.[Fight the truth with lies is more like it...ed]
That's why Organizing for America is putting together thousands of events this month where you can reach out to neighbors, show your support, and make certain your members of Congress know that you're counting on them to act.
But these canvasses, town halls, and gatherings only make a difference if you turn up to knock on doors, share your views, and show your support. So here's what I need from you: Can you commit to join at least one event in your community this month?
In politics, there's a rule that says when you ask people to get involved, always tell them it'll be easy. Well, let's be honest here: Passing comprehensive health insurance reform will not be easy. Every President since Harry Truman has talked about it, and the most powerful and experienced lobbyists in Washington stand in the way.
But every day we don't act, Americans watch their premiums rise three times faster than wages, small businesses and families are pushed towards bankruptcy, and 14,000 people lose their coverage entirely. The cost of inaction is simply too much for the people of this nation to bear.
So yes, fixing this crisis will not be easy. Our opponents will attack us every day for daring to try. It will require time, and hard work, and there will be days when we don't know if we have anything more to give. But there comes a moment when we all have to choose between doing what's easy, and doing what's right.
This is one of those times. And moments like this are what this movement was built for. So, are you ready?...Let's seize this moment and win this historic victory for our economy, our health and our families. Thank you,
President Barack Obama
(Wonder how many Obamabots are left....)
Did you report this email?
And so it starts....which side will draw blood first?
I doubt it. ACORN has a hundred billion dollars of funding. We have none.
Childish Community Organizer move...
Got that this morning as well. The CiC (Community organizer In Chief) is at it again.
“I think we can outplay them on this one”
I joust with the Obambots on Topix. One told me I was reported to the Kenyan Imposter. =)
Yes, but according to Barbara Boxer — we’re better dressed!
Signs for the Townhall Meetings:
Start Packing; You’re Political TOAST
Not only fill the meeting location, but have thousands of people lining the roads to the meeting.
He’s beginning to establish his “Civilian Army”.....it’s called ACORN.
Our troops are deployed and ready. A plus is that they ain’t asking for free sandwiches and cigarettes.
Once again, he.s in campaign mode; Will someone tell him he’s prez of the whole country, not just 52%?
Yep....and it’s not unpredictable....it’s going to be a hot August for sure.
And The New Black Pathers--
shoot... no free sammies and cigs?
Everybody remember to bring your video cameras with you to these townhall events. We need every liberal lie and ACORN attack posted on YouTube.
Out Play, not out PAY.
There are only a handful of ACORNS, compared to US!!!!!!
If all we are worried about is the dollars then we should go to Meixco
