BOG Statement of Purpose

This discussion thread is pinned.
Can we bring over the one from DU2 to our new digs here on DU3?

The mission of the Barack Obama Group is to discuss information and news about the life, career, accomplishments, and presidency of Barack Obama; to provide a haven for those members of Democratic Underground who support the president and his policies; to discuss President Obama's policy positions, speeches, interviews, and other public appearances; to discuss President Obama's political campaigns; and to discuss the causes which President Obama has championed, including health care reform and ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Those who have a generally negative view of President Obama and his administration, support his defeat in the 2012 presidential election (in primaries or the general election), or who are generally supportive of those who do, are not welcome in the Barack Obama Group.

25. Second paragraph

"Those who have a generally negative view of President Obama and his administration, support his defeat in the 2012 presidential election (in primaries or the general election), or who are generally supportive of those who do, are not welcome in the Barack Obama Group."


I think this has been enforced in the manner you suggest.

Don't worry, I think you can feel fairly safe that the hosts will insist that nothing negative about Obama or his decisions is every posted here.

I didn't know about this group. I was absent for a long time and a lot's changed. And some things haven't, which is why it's so nice to find this group here. Thank you for having it.

38. Is this one of those "refuge" group/forums? I don't know how much more of DU

I can stand and yet, I don't want to surrender it to what it looks like is going on here: anti-Solidarity/anti-Labor, anti-health care, anti-Democratic.

1st: OF COURSE the President should stand to our evaluations of him, especially the negative stuff, but the spirit of what is going on here at DU appears to be trending toward toxic and MEAN.

So many VITAL issues are on the table and all most of this board can do is rip and tear on President Obama, maybe all of the interaction and effects between ALL of the issues is WHY they are trying to destroy him.

I'm feeling hopeless.

40. You have free reign to do that everywhere else on DU.

This group is considered a "safe haven" group, where supporters come together to escape the drivel we hear daily from the MSM and other 24/7 anti-Obama propaganda.

Please back off yourself.

Thank you.

44. Consensus on cleaning up the SOP to remove the primary/re-election language?

The mission of the Barack Obama Group is to discuss information and news about the life, career, accomplishments, and presidency of Barack Obama; to provide a haven for those members of Democratic Underground who support the president and his policies; to discuss President Obama's policy positions, speeches, interviews, and other public appearances; to discuss President Obama's political campaigns; and to discuss the causes which President Obama has championed, including health care reform and ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Those who have a generally negative view of President Obama and his administration, support his defeat in the 2012 presidential election (in primaries or the general election), or who are generally supportive of those who do, are not welcome in the Barack Obama Group.


Not really a big deal but I think we might as well do it, if people agree. Just to clean it up a bit.
