Here it is. Congressional Republicans have a single goal: To make Barack Obama a one term president. Don’t take my word for it, the Republican Leader of the U.S. Senate actually said it on TV. Since Republicans took the House of Representatives, Republicans have blocked President Obama at every turn. When it comes time to vote, they don’t even read the bill they’re voting on. If President Obama is for it, they’re against it.
We all understand the importance of voting for President Obama this November. Record turnout in our community made him President in 2008 and our votes will be as important as ever this year. But too many voters in our community vote for President and skip Congress, judges and prosecutors. With Obama’s success hanging in the balance, and local issues around justice stinging us at every turn, the stakes are too high to skip any position on the ballot. As a community, we must send a strong message that we have President Obama’s back by voting down ballot, especially Congress.
We must join together and stand up to the Republicans in Congress that want to end Barack Obama’s presidency and support Democrats for Congress who have the President’s back. For the past two years Republicans have done everything in their power to make sure the President fails. From offensive language to even more offensive behavior, many GOP Congressional members have dishonored their elected office by putting beating up the President over serving the people. With our help this can come to an end, but the GOP will keep trying.
