Misc. Monday: “Organizing for America”

Beginning today, Mondays are dedicated to miscellaneous topics/updates that do not necessarily warrant a full day to themselves, but nonetheless are newsworthy.

Last week I received the following email:

Friend —

When Barack Obama was declared our 44th President, you didn’t just revel in that victory — you started asking what’s next for this movement.

How is this unprecedented group of volunteers, grassroots leaders, and dedicated supporters going to help make change a reality?

More than half a million people shared their thoughts and ideas about moving forward, and we listened carefully. Last week, President Obama announced the creation of Organizing for America — a group that will work alongside the President to support the agenda you fought so hard for.

You can be part of its first steps.

Watch a short video message I recorded with Mitch Stewart, Executive Director of Organizing for America, and learn more about this new organization you helped build.

Watch the video

 

You’ve already invested in the future of this country — whether you voted, donated money, helped organize your local community, or got involved in countless other ways.

But right now, your participation in the political process is more important than ever. We’ll soon be asking you to give whatever time or talent you can to support the President. With your help, we can bring change to Washington and the entire nation.

I look forward to working with you in the months and years ahead.

Thank you,

David

Is it just me, or does the fact that Obama’s perceived plan of bringing this country together resemble his ulterior plan of making it easier for unions to organize employees?   The name “Organizing for America” is eerily close to what a title that would be bestowed upon a union organizing drive.  Remember how the SEIU reminded the public to use the name Employee Free Choice Act instead of Card Check?  Well, perhaps getting the public to buy into the name “Organizing for America” will ease the road to winning public approval for organizing companies in the near future.
