Today Barack “The Movement Dude” Obama sent out an email to his rapidly dwindling group of roadies encouraging them to hit the asphalt and get busy with pushing his government healthcare takeover onto friends, neighbors, strangers at ball games and folks standing next to them at urinals in Wal Mart restrooms.
The problem for Obama is his popularity has dropped like a rock since January and many of the guilt ridden white liberals who voted for the guy hoping to assuage that guilt are now realizing they really got screwed as they stand in line at the unemployment office and watch their home values continue to plummet as neighborhoods go to hell in a handbasket due to home foreclosures.
The useful idiots i.e. the young college crowd who were all kinds of giddy when the former rock star was campaigning for president are now back to hitting the bong the booze and partying hard during the summer. Reality will bite for these kids soon enough when they get out of school and can’t find a job but hey that day is far off into the future so they don’t care. Give up some party time to canvass neighborhoods and push this government run healthcare plan into the faces of people who actually know what they are talking about? Fat chance home boy.

Check out what “The Won” is sending out to all his little brownshirts in a desperate attempt to drum up some kind of support for his George Soros mandated government takeover of our healthcare system and one seventh of the American economy.
Be sure to take notice of the URL near the end of Obama’s whining plea. Talk about a freakin’ narcissist.

subject This is the moment
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.
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?
Please commit now to taking at least one action in your community this month to build support for health insurance reform:
Let’s seize this moment and win this historic victory for our economy, our health and our families.
President Barack Obama
