President Obama sent out a letter to his Organizing for American brownshirts, asking them to stand up and voice their support for his liberal agenda in final two years of his presidency.
Here is the letter. Please try to contain your laughter until you have read the whole thing.
Two years: That’s all the time I have left as your president.
I know what I’m going to be fighting for until I leave this office.
And the work you do now with OFA — whatever it is that you choose to fight for — will define what we can achieve together in that time.
So let’s go. If it’s raising the minimum wage for hard-working Americans or fixing our broken immigration system that fires you up, I need you to stand up for it. If it’s gun violence prevention, speak out. If it’s marriage equality, or women’s rights, or getting serious about fighting climate change, your voice is needed like never before.
The elected officials I’ll work with in the last two years of my presidency need to be reminded that people like you aren’t going away.
They need to know you won’t let the special interests in Washington drown out the voices of Americans who want to drive our country forward. That’s what OFA was built to do.
So today, I’m asking directly: Will you commit to finish what you started with OFA?
I want to be clear about this: The difference you make isn’t theoretical — what you choose to do has a concrete impact.
When it comes to health care reform and the effort to help Americans across the country get covered in the months ahead, the role you play will be life-changing for real people. I’ve seen it.
Because of you, and groups like OFA, the face of American politics is fundamentally different today. You’ve changed what it means to get involved, and you’ve redefined how power is built.
Last week’s election doesn’t change that — it just makes your job all the more critical.
With or without help from Congress, I’m not done making real change for the American people. And I bet you aren’t, either.
Let’s hear it:
