Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois today exhorted his supporters to get extremely aggressive in their communities to persuade their neighbors to vote for Obama in November.
Speaking to a crowd in Elko, Nevada, Obama was quoted by the AP as urging the people to be his 'ambassadors':
"I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.
"And if they tell you that, 'Well, we're not sure where he stands on guns.' I want you to say, 'He believes in the Second Amendment.' If they tell you, 'Well, he's going to raise your taxes,' you say, 'No, he's not, he's going lower them.' You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case."
Obama has campaigned as a uniter. One can't help but wonder how neighbors will react to people getting up in their faces arguing to them to vote for Obama and how many friendships will be ruined by Obama this fall.
Ohhh..thats the way to make friends and persuade folks.
I have already seen this in the Obama supporters I know. They will lie to your face; it’s almost like they follow the Koran.

If an Obamanoid gets “in my face” I’ll show them what the Second Amendment means.
If one of Zero’s Zombies gets in my face, I will personally introduce them to the 2d Amendment.
“And if they tell you that, ‘Well, we’re not sure where he stands on guns.’ I want you to say, ‘He believes in the Second Amendment.’ If they tell you, ‘Well, he’s going to raise your taxes,’ you say, ‘No, he’s not, he’s going lower them.’ You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case.”
More like his lying minions!
hehe. I see we’re on the same wavelength here.
What happened to unifying the country? Kumbaya!
SOOOOOOOO stupid! What’s he think is going to happen in the privacy of the voting booth?
Noted street agitator teaches mau-mauing to followers.
Obama is living a pipe dream, if he thinks his supporters are going to get in our face.
He’s inciting violence, even riots. That used to be a crime.
I welcome the opportunity to “defend” myself when one of his community organizers gets in my face.
Agitprop-agitation + propoganda. He is going straight to the communist handbook.
Obama is a Chicago thug!
"He believes in the Second Amendment," as an article of faith, or as a reality of the Bill of Rights? This ain't gonna fly in Elko.
Man, they try that crap with me and they WILL get a hellstorm.
