100 Days until we reelect Barack Obama — What will YOU do with them?

Success doesn’t happen by accident

I’m getting ready to head to Detroit to the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) national conference at the Cobo Center where Anne and I will get to meet Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden this afternoon. It’s a significant day because we are now officially 100 days away from the general election where America will repudiate the Republican party and its ties to wealth & corporate power and give our vote to the team that works for average Americans — Biden & Obama.

What will YOU do with the 100 days you have left?

After the jump is a new video by the Obama campaign, showing the last 100 days before the election through the eyes of an OFA volunteer. It’s worth a look.

These corporate funders have so much to lose by having a Democrat in the White […]

Super PACs turn their attention from supporting candidates to destroying President Obama

Get ready, this is about to get VERY ugly

The opening salvos in the involvement of Super PACs in the 2012 presidential race happened in the past week. There are two very obvious examples and they should give us all a taste of the bitterness we’re going to see over the next seven months.

First, American Crossroads, Karl Rove’s privately-funded group, announced…

Barack Obama — Made in the USA

Barack Obama — Made in the USA

One thing I’ve always loved about Organizing for America (OFA) is their ability to have some fun with their fundraising. Here’s the latest: A coffee mug with the saying “Made in the USA” underneath a picture of President Obama. On the other side is a reproduction of his birth certificate. You can get it as a t-shirt, too. Good times, […]

The OFA = “the brown shirts” meme never dies

After my Twitter exchange with some fierce anti-gun control zealots earlier this week, in addition to being called a “freedom-hating communist”, I was also accused yet again of being a Nazi: [email protected]_Galt, I see that @Eclectablog is a brown-shirt…openly states he’s an #OFA community organizer…Sad, just sad. #NRA #guncontrol This is not the first time an OFA volunteer has been […]
