Spread the Word--The Accomplishments of a President

Scroll down for the list: 

The election of Mitt Romney simply CANNOT and must not happen.  The president has done much and has suffered the onslaughts not only of criticism which all presidents suffer but also severe, mean, cruel and dastardly racism.  It cannot be denied even though the party of the disloyal opposition surely does try to cover it up.  DO NOT BE DUPED.  

Electing the president is more important now than ever before.  Would YOU want to have Willard charlatan flip flopper in chief selecting maybe three members of the Supreme Court taking an already right wingnut bought court and congress to Herculean heights?  

DO NOT SIT BACK.  Pretend this is 2008 and the George Bush legacy has ruined a nation because Bush's sickening influence is STILL with us.  The moron Bush, Cheney, et al never sleep and our president inherited their pile of dung.  NEVER GIVE UP and do not falter but most of all failure is NOT an option.  Send this to all your friends and put it up on Facebook as well.  Heck pass it out at the supermarket ... anywhere and everywhere we must NOT let the Republican voter suppression illegality work.  

Re-elect the president and elect the superb Elizabeth Warren to the US Senate!!

The Obama Administration has accomplished incredible work in its first term, and part of our work is to make sure our supporters are able to talk about these accomplishments. Below is a list of some of the greatest hits from the first term that you should work to incorporate into your conversations about the President.There are many more - recently accomplished.

Some may be blind to these accomplishments because "It is by a black guy in the White House". Those people may have a right to their opinion but not to the facts.
