OFA – “We Do Big Things”

by lewwaters

Now that we see the left has officially began the 2012 re-election effort for the One, we see slogan after slogan being proffered. “Win the Future,” “Together We Win,” and now, a tee shirt offer of “We Do Big Things.”

Yes, and on the back it should read, “Doubled the National Debt,” “Raised Taxes,” “Threw Millions out of Work,” “Takeover an Unprecedented Amount of Business” and “Suffer the Highest Losses of any Midterm Election Since 1938.”

Obama’s Organizing for America pushing for DREAM Act and Repeal of DADT

by lewwaters

Barack Obama’s group set up to persuade citizen’s to buy into his agenda is working overtime today. With our country in dire straits, unemployment increasing, jobs drying up, national debt spiraling out of control and all of the maladies facing the nation, isn’t it odd that the main focus remains to be on passing the backdoor amnesty act for children of ILLEGAL Aliens brought to the country when young and caving into Gays who want to force acceptance of their sexuality upon the country.

Don’t believe me? I received the following just today in my email.

And, to make sure you do it right with the proper words, they even supply you a script to go along with the names and phone numbers of who to call to encourage calling legislators to pass these bills.


Shouldn’t we worry first about getting the nation back on sound economic footing?

Do you appreciate your name and phone number being given out to strangers on an email list?

“Don’t Vote,” More Feigned Democrat Outrage

by lewwaters

Ever mindful of Rahm Emanuel’s admonition of “never let a good crisis go to waste,” I see Democrats have launched a campaign of outrage over a short-lived ad from Nevada urging Latino’s “Don’t Vote” due to their votes be taken advantage of.

Mitch Stewart of BarackObama.com, also known as Organizing for America sent out an email I received this morning titled “If you don’t fight back, they’ll get away with it,” implying the ad, created and ran by one man, Robert de Posada, founder of Latinos for Reform is an official Republican Party operation against Democrat Nevada Senator, Harry Reid.

Organizing For America Offends Families Of Troops & Veterans

by lewwaters

Saturday August 22, 2009. An announcement in the Thursday, August 20 Columbian caught my eye on Organizing For America, a pro-Obama and decidedly left-winged group, planning on traveling through our county to gather ‘horror stories’ from people with private health insurance, figuring they could shock more people into believing the planned Obama take over of our healthcare and insurance system is best for America.

The group announced plans to gather at Esther Short Park to spread out from there.

Curious as to how they would manage this, my wife and I went down to Esther Short Park to witness the assembling, see what booths they may have set up and to wander through the Saturday Farmers Market held there each weekend.

Although we missed the initial gathering of activists who may have volunteered, we did see that there were not one, but two tables set up by Organizing for America activists.

Bearing in mind that even they have the freedom to spread their malicious lies about Republicans and others opposed to this massive takeover of one sixth of our economy, I especially noted that the sites chosen for both of their tables could not have been more inappropriate or offensive.

If it wasn’t a deliberate act of confrontation to set up where they did, it shows their lack of class and how they don’t care whom they offend to get their way.

The one booth was alongside the booth set up by a brand new chapter being organized for Blue Star Mothers, Moms who have Sons or Daughters who volunteered for our Military and are actively serving America at this time.

OAF - 1

That particular booth was almost inactive.

But, nearly directly across the sidewalk from the Blue Star Mothers was an active table of Organizing For America displaying their signs condemning any and every body who doesn’t roll over and play dead to accept this takeover of our healthcare industry.

Most offensive to the Moms manning the Blue Star Mother booth was that Organizing For America chose to put out a sign directly across from their booth saying, “Trillions for Wars and nothing for healthcare?” Of course, this is a blatant lie as we have poured billions of dollars into healthcare and other social programs. But, that doesn’t stop Organizing For America in their effort to subjugate us under the rule of Obama.

OFA - 5

Offensive because the Moms manning the Blue Star Mothers booth had to look at that sign, with their sons all serving our country today.

These are women who, whether or not they even agree with the war, have sons who are serving in our Military and whose sons either have been to the war or are in training. One Mom I spoke to said her son is currently in Mosul, a hotspot in Iraq and yes, she worries about him every day, like any Mom would.

Blue Star - 1

Blue Star Moms, Stephanie Wesztergom, Donna Eisinger and Crysta Alger look upon offensive sign.

The look on these Moms faces speaks volumes as they have to see that sign, knowing there are people directly across from them that could care less about the safety of their sons fighting for America and who would happily abandon them over there, withdraw all funding that supports and feeds them and divert it to wasteful government giveaways to those not entitled to it here.

And the attitude of the people manning the Organizing For Booth? Happy go lucky, without a care for how their hateful rhetoric may offend those they set up across from.

OFA - 9

Organizing For America, have you no shame? Have you no heart? Is converting America to socialism so important to you that basic humanity and thoughtfulness no longer exists in your world?

It seems the only “uniting” your messiah in Washington D.C. encourages is to knuckle under to his dictatorial control.

Shame on you, Organizing for America. You encourage violent acts at townhalls to deny us our free speech. You encourage highjacking of public events to ensure our side doesn’t get heard. You encourage lies about citizens and insurance companies, claiming the wages of top executives is “stealing from healthcare.”

And now, you disparage the families of those serving America and who fight to protect your freedom to spread your filthy lies.

How thoughtless you all have become since aligning with the socialists ruining America and the future of our grandchildren.

Brian Baird Gets Scolded by Constituents

by lewwaters

DSC06660DSC06665DSC06666DSC06677DSC06706

August 18, 2009, Clark County Amphitheater was the setting for Brian Baird’s first townhall after stating he would not hold any due to alleged death threats. Attendance was about 2800 according to the Columbian article on the event.

In all, the townhall went off with any major distractions, although a comment early on stating that many nations, Cuba included, had a lower infant mortality rate than the U.S. did, brought out the first loud grown and heavy boos from the audience.

Organizing for America sent out an email earlier calling on their followers to show up at 5 PM for the 7 PM event, to “make sure that the most powerful voices in this debate are those calling for real reform, not angrily clamoring for the status quo.”

Unfortunately for them, they were met by between 20 or 30 conservatives who arrived even earlier, yours truly included.

The gates were not to open until 6 PM and the line grew back out into the parking lot. Several Obama followers came with professionally made signs or those printed off of Organizing for America’s email.

A table was set up inside the gates entrance for registering to ask question. A group that had been milling around went in, identified as “volunteers,” although not one Republican was included in that group.

No signs were allowed in the auditorium, causing boxes of signs to be left outside the gate.

While the line was, for the most part, orderly, there were a couple Dem activists there who did try to incite trouble with bullhorns.

One, a Black lady passing out pro-Obamascare literature, tried to provoke confrontations, several times stepping very close to me as I handed out my flyers and eventually, following a man who brushed passed her after she stepped in his way, screaming in her bullhorn, and in his ear, that he shoved her and she wanted Police to arrest him.

Obviously a paid professional activist, if not an ACORN member.

Nothing came of it and seeing my wife starring at her, she began her bullhorn act again, right in my wife’s face.

Organizing for America met an unexpected flop as they set up their gazebo to give out professional signs in support. But with no signs allowed, they wasted their time trying to overpower this townhall.

Too bad, so sad.

Another supporter claiming to be a Viet Nam Veteran, tried to confront me for not supporting VA Healthcare for all and who seemed to be offended that I said he and I earned our VA Healthcare benefit. His wife stepped and got in my face to let me have it, informing me that her husband was alive due to VA Healthcare.

I lowered my head allowing her to see my Viet Nam Veteran hat and even her husband let her know that I was not the run of the mill conservative they could yell down easily.

Not too surprisingly, shortly before 7, I decided to walk through the lot just to see license plates, discovering a couple dozen Oregon Plates in the first 4 rows. I did not check on the 6 or 7 more rows back, but would bet money there was dozens more. No buses, though, that I saw.

Inside, questions were randomly chosen and were not pre-selected, as some have said they were. In all, 37 people were selected to ask their questions.

The first two were fairly softball in nature, but many others weren’t.

Of the first in support, single payer or a public option was mentioned as essential. One Dem woman made more of a speech than a question, exceeding her 3 minute limit and stating it was obscene that a CEO should be paid $6,000 an hour.

Another male complained about $900 a month insurance premiums, but then stated he was in a Union, destroying any credibility he might have had with the claim.

Several Veterans rose up and let Baird know they weren’t too pleased with his conduct of late, especially the ‘brown shirt’ comments. Baird sasid he was wrong and had apologized for it, but others still rose up to scold him over that.

One Marine rose mentioning the parenting skill section of the Pelosi bill and told Baird to “keep your hands off of my kids!” He received a standing ovation from the better than 2 to 1 conservative audience.

Several expressed distrust of the government with one stating he had taken an oath to protect and defend the constitution and was doing just that. He ended asking Baird when would he begin upholding the constitution.

I’d say the bulk of questions Baird was asked were against the Obamascare plan, but give Baird credit for being a slick politician and deflecting some, just not answering others.

The audience was loud at times, but mostly just with disagreement with a claim in an answer, occasionally in agreement. No violence for the 11 O’Clock news, although I saw both KGW 8 and KOIN 6 news crews there and also Eric the Great from KPAM 860 AM radio’s Victoria Taft, who was doing a live feed from the Amphitheater.

KATU also covered the event live.

5 Minutes from the end of the event, one Dem stood up and grabbed the microphone to yell out “single payer for all,” but left right after, the event close to being over anyway.

The audience expressed their anger with the proposed plan and Baird’s poor comments a couple weeks ago, but did not get out of hand. Baird had to face angry constituents, but was not threatened

Many properly scolded him, expressing our anger, frustration and fear of this socialist takeover robbing us of our liberties.

Did he listen and take our words and anger to heart?

Most likely not.

Come November 2010, Baird needs to be put in the unemployment line so we can elect someone who will actually represent our best interests.

CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, my profound apologies. You expected another out of control townhall with confrontations and maybe violence.

Even your paid goons could not incite it.

UPDATE: Brian Baird Steps On His Tongue Again

Constituents Snubbed By Baird, Unions Get Stealth Town Hall

by lewwaters

Updated & Rewritten

Baird relents, see update after post

Knowing that the media all over America has been reporting that Congressman Brian Baird had to “cancel” plans to hold Town Hall meetings with constituents over a “death threat” allegedly faxed to Baird, it was a bit perplexing to be notified this morning of a call that went out to selected members of the WA Federation of State Employees Union, urging to show up to a “meeting” to be held in Cowlitz County, Thursday, Aug 13 from 2 PM to 4 PM, that would be a face-to-face with Congressman Baird.

Baird has said in regards to face-to-face town hall meeting with constituents, “What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics,” and “There is this national movement in blogs and on the Internet to go to town hall meetings solely to attack people.” He went on to say, “live meetings will ‘probably resume’ in September or October,” in an interview with the Columbian.

Since Clark County constituents were treated to a hastily set up tele-conference Friday, August 7, with a very last minute notification going out to some, it piqued my interest to read of Union members being invited to meet with in a face-to-face meeting with a couple days notice.

I found it especially curious, as Representative Baird had indicated fear for his life due to the death threat allegedly faxed to him, but so far, it has been only Union thugs that have physically attacked and beaten people at town halls.

Searching for any announcement of the meeting, I was directed to the August 11 edition of the Longview Daily News and the article, Federal lawmakers to get report from Mount St. Helens panel which announces,

“Swanson said Friday he didn’t believe public comment would be taken at Thursday’s event, but it is open to the public. The meeting is only scheduled for one hour, making a public comment session unlikely.”

“Thursday’s meeting is at 2 p.m. in the Cowlitz County Expo and Conference Center, 1900 Seventh Ave., Longview.”

That certainly doesn’t sound like much of a meeting to stack it with supporters, especially with the email notifying those selected members saying,

“Spread the word & come if you can…. btw, this is NOT a health-care event (though it wouldn’t surprise me if there was protesting going on). Come out in your green shirt & hear what your Congressman & Senators have to say!”

Looking around the WA Federation of State Employees web site I found,

A number of town hall meetings are scheduled in coming weeks. While Congress is home on vacation, make sure they hear from you about health care reform. Attend an event in your area with your Members of Congress to show that we need health care reform and we need it now. It would be very good to counter the anti-health care reform rhetoric at these Town Halls. To see the schedule in your area and to download resources you can use, go to http://www.wfse.org > Action Center.

You’ve seen the news reports showing the shouting matches at these town hall meetings, some from legitimate frustration, but a lot orchestrated by big business and the big insurance companies. You need to make your voice heard so the call for affordable health insurance isn’t drowned out by the greed of the insurance companies.

One important town hall meeting is set this Thursday in Longview.

Senator Murray, Senator Cantwell and Representative Baird are scheduled to be in Longview on Thursday to speak on local issues. This was not scheduled as a health care event, but opponents of health care reform are targeting this meeting as a platform for their message.

We need AFSCME health care reform ADVOCATES in the house. Please try to attend!

Details:
Mount St. Helens Citizen Advisory Committee Update
Thursday, August 13, 2009 / 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Cowlitz County Expo Center, Loowit Meeting Room, 1900 7th Ave., Longview

But, didn’t the Union email just say it wasn’t about healthcare?

Looking around some more, I was even more surprised to discover on the official Obama website, Organizing For America,

Standing up for insurance reform in Longview, WA with Sen. Murray, Sen. Cantwell, And Rep. Baird (Health Care Public Event)

Our representatives are under attack by Washington insiders, insurance companies, and well-financed special interests who don’t go a day without spreading lies and stirring up fear. We need to show that we’re sick and tired of it, and that we’re ready for real change, this year.

Please come to the Health Care event, and make sure that the most powerful voices in this debate are those calling for real reform.

Please try to arrive by noon; space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Time: Thursday, August 13 from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Host: Organizing for America
Location: COWLITZ COUNTY EXPO CENTER (LONGVIEW, WA)
1900 7TH AVENUE LONGVIEW, WA 98632

This is the same location, same day and same time the Daily Times tells us the three will be in Cowlitz to receive a simple report, in a one-hour meeting. Surely they cannot be in more than one place at one time, so it appears the public announcement went out in the very bottom of a article filled with deflective words, possibly to discourage public attendance, seeing just another boring meeting over nothing too important.

Yet, OAF and WFSE are sending out invites to stack a town hall type event that all 3 will be at, showing any media invited how the citizens of southwest Washington support this healthcare reform when they televise it later on.

Baird champions himself as an advocate of his constituents, yet we are snubbed when it comes to meeting with him face-to-face to discuss such an important matter as totally revamping our healthcare industry under near complete government control. We that were lucky enough to get through last Friday were entitled to ask a question over the phone and only those fortunate enough to be listening in were able to hear the answers given.

And now we see that Baird, along with Murray, Cantwell, OAF and WFSE seem to be conspiring to hold a stealth townhall on healthcare that will most assuredly will be shown afterwards as a big win for Democrats, when voices of opposition will not be present, not knowing what was really going on.

If this is not a deliberate attempt to set-up a favorable town hall for display, then these people are inept and should not be trusted running out healthcare system.

This is not an “advocate of the people,” but a career politician ponying up to special interest money for support

I can’t really say I’m shocked, but clearly, Brian Baird needs to be replaced in November 2010.

With the challengers running, to replace Baird, he has shown a complete lack of regard for voters in Washington’s Third Congressional District with favoring special interests.

UPDATE: Congressman Baird, obviously under fire from many constituents, has cancelled the stealth townhall and is arranging town halls for constituents. Baird apologizes, announces meetings

Democrats Just Won’t Stop Lying

by lewwaters

Obama, ShockFor 8 years we all saw how the Democratic Cartel in power today lied about, fearmongered and totally misrepresented Republicans and the Bush administration. Since seizing dictatorial control of the government this has increased, not decreased.

In two previous posts, Democrats, STOP THE LIES! and Who Is Really Orchestrating?, I mentioned some examples and showed how organized efforts in this healthcare reform fiasco is them, not the ones they accuse.

It was shown on a national level how they misrepresented and blew a memo from a small Connecticut Libertarian group of less than 20 people into a major Republican coordinated effort. And still, the coordinated Democrat lies keep coming.

In last few days I have received numerous emails claiming how it is Republicans disrupting town halls and perpetrating violence, when in actuality it is the Union thugs sent by Democrats doing such. Inciting comments in those emails are as follows,

Received from Paul Begala on July 27, “The Republican attacks on health care are getting downright scary. And I mean literally.

One Republican says that now is the time to “go for the kill” on health insurance reform and even “drive a stake through its heart.” Another one talks about making it President Obama’s “Waterloo” and adding that “it will break him.” Jeez. These guys sound like they’re living inside a bad horror movie.”

From Mitch Stewart of Organizing for America, received on July 29, “You’ve probably seen the headlines: Opponents of change are doing everything they can to delay health insurance reform. As a Republican strategy memo concluded, “If we slow this sausage-making process down, we can defeat it,”” referring to the now infamous Libertarian memo to 10 people.

On July 29, the DCCC’s John Vogel said, “Today the Republicans launched an early assault to try and stop President Obama’s progress on health care reform. It’s also bigger than we were expecting. Republicans are now spending $1 million of special interest money on campaign activities attacking Democrats who support President Obama on health care reform.

Their rhetoric is also reaching absurd new levels. One House Republican said that health care reform will cause seniors to be “put to death by their government.””

August 3 brought from Bill Clinton, through the DCCC, “But, just as I did in 1993, President Obama has run into a buzz saw of special interest opposition to his top domestic policy priority — health care reform. He is facing off against some of the most powerful special interests in Washington who’ve launched a furious campaign to preserve the status quo.”

On August 5, signed by Barack Obama, “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.

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.”

Again from John Vogel and received August 6, “Republicans wanted a fight on health insurance reform this summer? Thanks to you, they’re about to get more than they bargained for.

It’s getting hard to keep track of all the truth-twisting attacks by the Republicans in their drive to preserve the status quo for big health insurance companies. That’s why the DCCC has launched HealthCareFactCheck.com, to expose these false attacks.”

Also on August 6, Vogel sent out, “At a time when families are looking for solutions to rebuild the economy and make health care more affordable, Rush Limbaugh is attempting to sidetrack the important debate through his use of symbols that are synonymous with murder, intolerance and genocide.”

August 10 saw Mitch Stewart send out, “Members of Congress have been home for just a few days, and they’re already facing increased pressure from insurance companies, special interests, and partisan attack organizations that are spending millions to block health insurance reform.

These groups are using scare tactics and spreading smears about the President’s plan for reform, trying to incite constituents into lashing out at their representatives and disrupting their events.

The goal of these disruptions is for a few people to get a lot of media attention and hijack the entire public discourse.”

August 10, David Axelrod of the White House staff sent, “Anyone that’s watched the news in the past few days knows that health insurance reform is a hot topic – and that rumors and scare tactics have only increased as more people engage with the issue. Given a lot of the outrageous claims floating around, it’s time to make sure everyone knows the facts about the security and stability you get with health insurance reform.”

August 10 also saw Moveon.org’s Nita Chaudary email, “Right-wing extremists have been crashing tons of events and trying to dominate the national debate. But MoveOn members won’t let them succeed-we’re pushing back with Real Voices for Change, an ambitious campaign to show that the overwhelming majority of Americans continue to support President Obama’s plans for change.”

Uh, if they really had the support they claim, would they have to resort to such cries for support?

You’ll note too, there is no mention of Nancy Pelosi calling those of us concerned Nazi’s, un-American and no mention of just last week, Washington State’s Brian Baird referring to us “Brown shirt’s” with a “lynch mob mentality.”

The Obama administration and is Democratic cartel have publicly called upon the SEIU, the Service Employees International Union, to appear at town halls to “counter” concerned citizens who question the proposed healthcare changes being shoved down our throats.

Andy Stern of the SEIU, in response to their “organizing philosophy” says,

We prefer to use the power of persuasion, but if that doesn’t work we use the persuasion of power.”

Just ask Kenneth Gladney, the Black man in St. Louis who members of the SEIU viciously attacked and beat last week about the effectiveness of the SEIU’s “organizing philosophy.”

Those that either oppose or speak of legitimate concerns on this proposed legislation that would grab one sixth of our economy have gone over the parts of the bill that have been made public. They have picked out troubling aspects and presented their arguments and concerns by quoting the actual bill by page and paragraph number.

The Democratic cartel sends in the goons and emails false claims to let you know you are too dumb to read.

If this bill is as good as they claim and will do as much to better people as they say, two points come to mind.

1. Why don’t they do as the concerned citizens do and counter concerns by quoting page and paragraph number as well, showing us the actual benefit or lay to rest concerns we have?

2. Why are they unwilling to place their families and selves on it first?

Perhaps those opposed to it, middle class Americans, not the special interest corporations the neo-coms claim, are on to something.

Perhaps individuals showing up en masse at town halls and who angrily speak up really are angry at how we are treated and disrespected as the Democratic cabal manipulates us into surrendering our liberties and freedoms to them?

Perhaps we need to speak up louder and tell these Democrats where to put their socialist agenda!

Who Is Really Orchestrating?

by lewwaters

For over a week now, the Democratic cabal have been leveling false charges of how Republicans and conservatives have organized in opposition of Obamacare. Listening to them, attempting to draw support for your view and helping people express their views is all of a sudden something akin to blasphemy.

I was a little less than surprised to receive from Obama’s Organizing for America the following,

Obama, Organizing For America

 

 

Friend —

All throughout August, our members of Congress are back in town. Insurance companies and partisan attack groups are stirring up fear with false rumors about the President’s plan, and it’s extremely important that folks like you speak up now.

So we’ve cooked up an easy, powerful way for you to make a big impression: Office Visits for Health Reform.

All this week, OFA members like you will be stopping by local congressional offices to show our support for insurance reform. You can have a quick conversation with the local staff, tell your personal story, or even just drop off a customized flyer and say that reform matters to you.

We’ll provide everything you need: the address, phone number, and open hours for the office, information about how the health care crisis affects your state for you to drop off (with the option of adding your personal story), and a step-by-step guide for your visit.

According to our records, you live near Rep. Brian Baird’s office in Olympia, WA.

Sign up now to visit Rep. Brian Baird’s office in Olympia this week.

(Not your representative, or think there might be another office that’s
easier for you to get to? Click here to find a different office.)

As you’ve probably seen in the news, special interest attack groups are stirring up partisan mobs with lies about health reform, and it’s getting ugly. Across the country, members of Congress who support reform are being shouted down, physically assaulted, hung in effigy, and receiving death threats. We can’t let extremists hijack this debate, or confuse Congress about where the people stand.

Office Visits for Health Reform are our chance to show that the vast majority of American voters know that the cost of inaction is too high to bear, and strongly support passing health reform in 2009.

Don’t worry if you’ve never done anything like this before. The congressional staff is there to listen, and your opinion as a constituent matters a lot. And if you bring a friend, you’ll have more fun and make an even greater impact.

Click below to sign up for an Office Visit for Health Reform:

http://my.barackobama.com/OfficeVisit

Wherever you live, these visits matter: Many representatives are pushing hard toward reform, and they are taking a lot of heat from special interests. They deserve our thanks and need our support to continue the fight. But those who are still putting insurance companies and partisan point-scoring ahead of their constituents must know that voters are watching — and that we expect better.

Earlier this week, the President wrote that “this is the moment our movement was built for” and asked us all to commit to join at least one event this month. This is the way to answer that call, and rise to the challenge of this moment together.

Thank you for going the extra mile when it matters the most,

Mitch

Mitch Stewart
Director
Organizing for
America

I am really left wondering, just what is this “movement” in the statement, “this is the moment our movement was built for.”

Are we not all American citizens now? Just what is this “movement” designed to do to our beloved country? Did he not take an oath to “faithfully protect and defend the constitution of the United States” for all, not just his “movement?”

Mostly out of curiosity, I visited Organizing for America to see just how they were orchestrating visits to congresscritters. The two pages below are what I found there. Bear in mind, it is something un-American now to draw people to your point of view if a Republican.

Obama, Schedule Visit to Rep. 1

(larger view of image here)

and

Obama, Schedule Visit To Rep. 2

(Larger view of image here)

Note on page 1 that they will give you step by step instruction on your visit with your congresscritter and supply you with needed information to make their view, oops, sorry, your view, known.

On page 2 next to the block to enter your phone number, you read (so that an organizer can follow up with you.)

Don’t they trust that you would conduct the visit in the proper manner, as per their instructions?

And what if you didn’t? Do you get scolded? Told to repeat the visit and do it right this time? Will you be expected to rat out the congresscritter he/she doesn’t jump on board? Wouldn’t reporting him to flag@whitehouse.gov accomplish that as well?

I am left wondering if their position is so weak that they must resort to leading people around by the nose and putting words and thoughts in their mouth to drum up support for this.

I have to tell you, Obama gets scarier and scarier all the time and, we are only a little over 200 days into this regime.
