Let's see how many of the rabid Obama forces come out for these events and learn how much "change" they really want to see. Instead of just phoning it in for someone else to accomplish. Phoneys. And they have no business cramming down their choice for the next President because they have done nothing to earn it.

CPA and CPF do NOT endorse candidates and are not rabid Obama forces. There are quite a few Republicans involved in both of the organizations as well. Know of what you speak!

Wow. I remember when this used to be a blog, not a news source. Shall we rename it "Blogahat" or "Noozabarbara"?

Ouch! I've always tried to print items of interest that people send me...but I see your point!

Let me explain. CPA and CPF are fine organizations that do a lot of heaving lifting work in this town. They do not endorse and that was not the point.

The point was here is a worthy activity for all the Obama fans who claim they want change to participate in and support with their extended efforts.

Will they show up in droves so they can prove they really want to work for change, or just ask someone else to do it for them.

Got it. That occurred to me later that day -- thanks for clarifying. Whatever side you are on it would be good to put your volunteer time where your mouth is! Wouldn't it be cool if we had a sense of entitlement around that?
