Ithaca grassroot groups unite for Obama
the Ithaca: Ithaca, NY ^ | Wednesday, September 28th, 2011 | Eli Sherman Contributing Writer

Three Democratic organizers have joined together in Tompkins County to rally up voters for President Barack Obama’s re-election.

Senior Veronica De Cesare, a member of Obama for America 2012 who is responsible for canvassing Ithaca College and its surrounding areas, held a meeting in her Circle Apartment last week to talk about re-election tactics and to celebrate the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, which prevented openly homosexual and bisexual individuals from serving in the military.

De Cesare, Cornell University senior Brynn Leopold and Robert Chapman, an adjunct instructor at Tompkins Cortland Community College, met in mid-September during a grassroots training course in Syracuse and are working with different strategies to gather support for the president in next year’s presidential election....

“The Republican primary is on its way, and they’re always on the news, and they’re having debates and in the public view,” De Cesare said. “The president is still the president and he’s got to do his job and doesn’t really have this time to campaign per se. So it’s important to reach out to individuals and campaign on his behalf.”

“The president is still the president and he’s got to do his job and doesn’t really have this time to campaign per se."

Obama doesn't have time for campaigning? That may be the funniest thing I'll read all week.

Obama may lose the rest of the country but he'll always Ithaca...the City of Evil.

I have been to Ithaca in the recent past.

It looks like San Fransisco - libtards everywhere

Signs on lawns and in windows saying F*** BUSH (still!) and aggressive behavior after they saw my TEA party bumper sticker.

My car actually got bumped (thank God for 5 MPH bumbers)

That line caught my eye as well. Veronica must be working on her set for the Ithaca College Comedy Club
