Pro-ObamaCare Group Holds Rally On Barack’s Birthday – One Person Shows Up

OFA Attracts One Person For ObamaCare Event – Big Government

Organizing for America, the advocacy off-shoot of Barack Obama’s reelection campaign, has declared August as a month of “action.” It is taking a page from the Tea Party playbook and trying to show grass-roots support for Obama’s agenda. Its first event on Sunday, Barack Obama’s birthday, was to promote the benefits of ObamaCare. In Northern Virginia, a base of support for Obama, it attracted one volunteer. One.


From Politico:

The Centreville event’s lone attendee, Lynn Duvall of Fairfax, Va., told POLITICO that it was her family’s own medical burdens that fueled her passion for Obamacare. Duvall’s son Logan has Crohn’s disease and under the law’s provisions can stay on her health plan until he turns 26, next January. Then he’ll be able to get coverage in the health exchange, despite his pre-existing condition.

I have a very good friend with Crohn’s disease. That didn’t stop her from founding a very successful software company. That said, I don’t want this to be about the specific situation of Lynn Duvall. This story is about OFA’s failure.

OFA is trying to translate Obama supporters of his reelection into an advocacy network for his agenda. The challenge, though, is that there is less support for Obama’s policies than for him as a politician. That it could only attract one volunteer in Centreville, VA, which is full of federal workers, is evidence of the vast disconnect between Obama’s policies and the general public.

Record 40 States Honor Reagan Birthday; 8 Democratic Guvs Balk

Record 40 States Honor Reagan Birthday; 8 Democratic Guvs Balk – Washington Examiner

Ronald Reagan can count 40 states that still remember the Gipper fondly.

On his 102nd birthday Wednesday, 40 states – a record – have proclaimed February 6 “Ronald Reagan Day.” Eight Democratic governors have refused to recognize Reagan Day and two others are on the fence.

The Reagan honor is also a tribute to Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform. He also heads the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project which asks the nation’s governors to set the day aside for Reagan.

“Ronald Reagan led America forward to defeat the threats to our prosperity of high taxes, inflation, and recession at home and a surging Soviet Empire abroad. He left America stronger, freer, and safer than the day he became President,” said Norquist, whose project also encourages the naming of roads, buildings and landmarks after Reagan.

Here is the Reagan Legacy Project’s list of those backing–and rejecting–Reagan Day:

Alabama – Robert Bentley (R)

Alaska – Sean Parnell (R)

Arizona – Janice Brewer (R)

California – Jerry Brown (D)

Colorado – John Hickenlooper (D)

Florida – Rick Scott (R)

Georgia – Nathan Deal (R)

Idaho – Butch Otter (R)

Illinois – Pat Quinn (D)

Indiana – Mike Pence (R)

Iowa – Terry Branstad (R)

Kansas – Sam Brownback (R)

Louisiana – Bobby Jindal (R)

Maine – Paul LePage (R)

Maryland – Martin O’Malley (D)

Michigan – Rick Snyder (R)

Mississippi – Phil Bryant (R)

Missouri – Jay Nixon (D)

Montana – Steve Bullock (D)

Nebraska – Dave Heineman (R)

Nevada – Brian Sandoval (R)

New Hampshire – Maggie Hassan (D)

New Jersey – Chris Christie (R)

New Mexico – Susana Martinez (R)

New York – Andrew Cuomo (D)

April 30: George Washington becomes the first ...

No,not to me, like Alesiter I still call this holiday George Washington’s Birthday!

The Heritage Foundation would like to have a word with you…

It’s Washington’s Birthday, Not Presidents Day

February 22 is the birthday of George Washington — the man who, more than any other, made possible our republican form of government.

The third Monday in February has come to be known, wrongly, as President’s Day. America’s political leaders should take this occasion to remember Washington’s deeds, recollect his advice, and again call the holiday celebrating him by its legal name: Washington’s Birthday.

No better friend, no worse enemy!

May God bless the United States Marines! Happy Birthday to the USMC!

235 years ago today, the United States Marine Corps was born in a tavern in Philadelphia, PA. Each year, on November 10th, Marines all over the world celebrate the birth of the Corps. Marines and their wives go to balls, with a formal cake-cutting ceremony and a solemn reading of Gen. John A. Lejeune’s birthday message, summarizing the history, mission, and traditions of the Corps. The country is reminded of the valor, the pride, the honor, of being a United States Marine. The Corps values of honor, courage, and commitment still remain strong today, and Marines deployed all over the world uphold those values as they fight to defend our freedoms.

235 years later, Marines remain faithful. When Semper Fidelis was adopted as the motto of the Marine Corps, it was taken to heart. From Marines who remain fanatically devoted to their country, to the Corps, and to their fellow Marines, to the wives who stand devoted by their husbands’ sides through war and peace, we remain steadfastly faithful through the good and the bad, the easy times and the times when you feel like you can no longer go on.

As a Marine Corps wife, Semper Fidelis is my vow, too. It is my duty and my honor to stand beside him, to be always faithful not only to my husband but to the values of the Marine Corps as well. It takes honor to be a Marine Corps wife. It takes courage and commitment, especially when your husband is fighting halfway around the world and you don’t know if he’ll be coming back or not. It takes a special kind of woman to be the wife of a Marine. When you marry a Marine, you aren’t just marrying the man. You’re marrying the Marine Corps as well, and Semper Fidelis applies to the women left behind as well as the men who don the uniform.

Read it all, Cassy is the proud wife of a Marine, she knows of what she speaks!
