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
THis shows he is getting very scared. If he had that many supporters they would be in play already.
Obama says he wants you to call him and report the lies.
You can also call or write to the President:
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Please include your e-mail address
Or use their online form here
Also...don’t fall for his tactics; not only is he hoping the right makes the first wrong move, but he NEEDS a crisis.
These people are trained agitators.
“Never Let A Good Crisis Go To Waste”—they are banking on it.
Acorn probably. They'll probably be armed this time.
You know what? I really think a LOT of the “Obama Lovers” are not with Hussein on this issue.
To be sure, there are cultists that will never cross him...but I think the majority of working folks who supported this goofball despise the idea of government run health care.
I just reported this email and the link to his page as being fishy and full of lies. Sent the report to email@example.com
there were only a "handful" of Nazi ss troops, and 6 million Jews, and look what happened.
Plus, Acorn canvassers have nothing else to do, while the people that matter in this country have to work, to pay for that 100 billion Acorn is spending to pass out Obama propaganda.
“I think we can outplay them on this one. “ (LA Lydia)
“I doubt it. ACORN has a hundred billion dollars of funding. We have none.” (Nathan)
Congratulations, Nathan - you’ve just fallen for their Rule 1, and Rule 9.
RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.”
RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
This is the time to fight fire with an inferno, and not fall for their intimidations!!
This is just baby steps. Next comes organized informing, “committees for the defense of the revolution”, and blacklists. Obama and his thugs can order up selective IRS tax audits, FBI investigations, grand jury subpoenas and indictments, and all the other apparatus of the federal government to harass, intimidate and squash the protest movement, in addition to putting his ACORN brownshirts and Black Panther thugs onto the streets for more direct action. He is modelling himself on his amigo Hugo Chavez, and what worked in Venezuela he figures will work here too.
And with each step, he will create thousands of Henry Bowmans.
The Obamathugs are getting their marching orders...............
“Every President since Harry Truman has talked about it, and the most powerful and experienced lobbyists in Washington stand in the way.”
Except this time it is the AMERICAN PEOPLE that stand in the way. You are President for all of us!
What a communist tool he is...
They allowed their weapons to taken. Wannabe Nazis in this country would have a much harder (impossible) time rounding people up.
I posted mine on an earlier thread.
Ridiculous. They can in the same email say that the protestors are lying when they say they aren’t organized, and then try to ORGANIZE pro-deathcare?
Before or after 18 hrs at the office?
The first Patriots worked 18 hours on the land, then took care of their animals
When the Jewish men in Nehemiah’s day rebuilt the temple, they did so with arms in one hand, tools in the other. When patriots and settlers went out to farm, the rifles were stacked nearby, so... lame excuse
You get that email if you are registered on myobama.com found at: http://my.barackobama.com/ If you sign up, they send you all of their “marching orders” ... you can also “donate” (which the poster left off of the email). I would donate, but since I’m only donating to conservatives, this one doesn’t seem to qualify.
I've looked those Acorn folks in the eye - I'm pretty sure we can take them!
You know we could play their game back at them. Dress up like schlubs and disrupt. You know, we could put away our Brooks Brothers and Michelle Obama high fashions and get down and dirty, LOL.
These aren't such simplistic times.
Are you going to let history repeat itself? I sure as hell am not!
I ordered the first one off my property doing the GPS thing, haven’t seen any since
“Before or after 18 hrs at the office?”
If your house was on fire, when would it be convenient to put out the fire?
I suggest we show up in camouflage fatigues, that’ll make’em wonder
