Leaders of President Obama's reelection campaign announced Friday that they are launching a permanent advocacy organization called "Organizing for Action" that will enlist his supporters to fight for his policy agenda.

Calling it "the next phase of this movement," former campaign manager Jim Messina described the new group as an extension of Obama's successful bid for a second term, which used technology to engage volunteers at a new level in their communities.

"If we can take the enthusiasm and passion that people showed throughout the campaign and channel it into the work ahead of us, we will be unstoppable," Messina, who will be the chairman of the new group, wrote in an email to campaign donors early Friday morning.

    So they sit there in Chicago, ignore all the murder around them and instead focus on implementing more liberal policies that can only result in more murder.

    Why am I not shocked?

    Deliver the message in easy to repeat slogans. Never confuse the people with facts. Make sure each message vilifies, demeans and marginalizes the evil conservatives that believe in the constitution and Judeo-Christian values. Distort and destroy their evil message before they can speak it to the masses. Always remember Newspeak - good is evil, people that think differently than you are dangerous and will hurt you. Go now, and do as you are instructed, Comrade. You get extra vodka ration reward tonight.

    i saw the video and u michelle can not trick the people to run around to do or be the president chess peices, if ur husband need inspiratiin and ideas, he is directed ti work with the people in congress. the process of make important decesiin for the people are elected ofdi ials, not people who vote for him. the process is all wrong. if he simply had made revulation to help small busiiness and start bussiness, their would be better employment numbers. if he would have believed in his cause, rather then fight a high scool afgument with the rich,he could have done more before the bush taxes expired. now he wants to violate thier civilian right of voting by forcing them to get more involved and thats wrong. if some one wants to get involved then thats perfection, but to broadcast a cry for help when thier civilian right is vote, is asking more form people then they diserve michelle.

    michell and burrack, you want help, find me here or email me here

    WAIT! There has been yet another shooting in Houston today. Was it a crazy person like you with weird paranoiac associations floating around in their head? Probably. They usually are. If you and your gun buddies would spend more time in a classroom than masturbating to your firearms as you fantasize about insurrection you might find your embarrassing ignorance and pathology frightening to you. As it is right now, your fears of everyone else not like you put normal people in danger. Like today in Houston.

    Exactly how can hyping up people with little information on the subjects be a good thing? That's how we got Obama, twice! IF they did some accurate education (which they can't, because their positions rely on lies), then this situation might be alight.

    The President certainly needs people to explain to those who cannot think beyond the limbic system of their brain what the mandate from the majority voters want him to accomplish. The racist and other socially retarded members of the minority party will continue to berate the President no matter what more he and his administration accomplishes during his second term, but at least the President can now focus on what we again voted for him to do.

    Ah, I can tell you are a true liberal, you went immediately to calling names and smears without providing any facts. But I would hope all Americans would "berate" him for running up a trillion dollar + deficit every year.

    Unlike you as a standing example, you will have to explain what facts you require in relation to my comment.

    Oh listen to you.. Racisit, retarded,ohh another attack using big names by a libutard, seems as you hit your nail right on the head. but then you are a gimme type of personality and not a work for it type. Just as Obama, that is why he uses exucitive orders and by passes congress, some of his own party votes against his extreme ideas, and as far as berate, until he lives up to his oath, he deserves it. this is a republic, not a socialist nation.
