Mayor Vs Community Organizer (2)

Mayor Vs Community Organizer (1)

The Obama campaign and its media cheer leaders are stunned.  Somehow, the McCain-Palin campaign has roared to life, forcing their candidate to deal with challenges he didn’t expect and isn’t prepared to take on.

In our Inbox this morning was a second petulant email from the Obama Campaign, defending so-called Community Organizing, a major component of Obama’s meager resume.

Why would the Republicans spend a whole night of their convention attacking ordinary people?  With the nation watching, the Republicans mocked, dismissed, and actually laughed out loud at Americans who engage in community service and organizing.

Our convention was different…You may have missed it, but we…showed the country a video with the faces and voices of those organizers, volunteers, and donors from every corner of the country.  Watch the video and make a donation of $5 or more now to show that in this election, ordinary people will make their voices heard.

Really?  Will this video explain why Obama claims his experience as a community organizer prepared him to be President?  Great!

So we clicked on the video.  What a waste of three minutes!

  • Video of cars driving up and down streets,
  • people walking around with clipboards,
  • half-second clips of people holding up little “hope” and “change” signs,
  • vapid three-second soundbites from those proud “ordinary people,”
  • Joe Biden bellowing that “this may be the last time to reclaim the America we love,” and finally,
  • sputtering to an end with the same old banal, “oratory” from obama, with the usual cheering mob in the background…

We are one people! We are one nation! And together we will begin the next great chapter in the American story…YES WE CAN!”

Where’s the defense of community organizing as preparation for the most challenging executive position in human history?  Not in this video!
