Email from Barack Obama about RNC Attacks

This is why I endorsed Barack Obama. I am sick of Rovian attacks, an the RNC has just absolutely repelled me from even considering them. And yes, I have voted Republican before, name George W. Bush in 2000.

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. We gave the stage to everyday Americans who hunger for change and stepped up to make phone calls, knock on doors, and raise money in small amounts in their communities.

You may have missed it, but we also showed the country a video with the faces and voices of those organizers, volunteers, and donors from every corner of the country….

What you didn’t hear from the Republicans at their convention is a single new idea about how to make the healthcare system work, get our economy moving for the middle class, or improve education.

Just attacks — on me, and on you.

But what the McCain attack squad doesn’t understand is that people like you — who devote part of their busy lives to organizing and building their communities — have the power to change this country.

With your help, that’s exactly what we’re going to do.

Thank you,




  • I have to say, my jaw dropped when I heard the attacks against community service. I can’t imagine a greater way to serve this country, then to improve a local community. Considering I live in Chicago, it sure as hell isn’t a cake walk.

    Clearly the plan is to continue to divide people rather than bring us together. I was disappointed by that statement.

  • I realized that he means country first for those who are willing to seize power over other people through formal institutions, as opposed to those who organize the people to take care of themselves – in the community. So odd that they cant keep it straight…
