    I am a firm believer that if Obama stays the course by attempting to be a negotiator between the democrats and the republicans that it won't be enough to rally the party and organization will fall off.

    I think Obama needs a Protest movement - organizing door to door and protest in the streets and workplaces.

    I got this as a reply:

    You are naive . . .

    Oh, the world is so simple, and that's all we need to do to make sure he waves his wand and makes every wish come true.

    Well, I can see you're new here, and you're probably pretty young, too, so maybe you're not exactly aware of how we have gotten as far as we have, or what it takes.

    Then he challenged me on what I have been doing for the past six years while he was doing this important work on this blog.

    I was organizing in the Environmental and Anti-War movements going door to door, phone fundraising, and doing GOTV in tight congressional districts - full time I might add.

    Before that I volunteered throughout middle school and high school participating in two separate Democratic National Conventions.

    It sounds to me like people don't want to go to work and organize. That is what it sound like to me.
    It ain't pointless bitching if walk the walk.

    And yes I am a starry eyed supporter and protester of Obama, an organizer for progressive values first and last.
