Hello from the inside. Columbus Ohio Democrat here, DU Newbie!
I finally decided to join in the fun. I found DU in 2008 when the world was enthralled by the Palin -McCain ticket. I thought the world had gone insane, and found folks on DU were of a like mind (both moderate and extreme views, all facets of my own political leanings!)
But finally,Thanks to the extremists , lying, racists, ideologically challenged, obstructionists, I have had enough.
Our President of the United States of America is struggling to get respected for the good he has done. Who is performing the polling in Columbus? There is NO DOUBT that OHIO is going for OBAMA this go round. I hear stories of jobs saved, created and protected all over Ohio as I travel for work. Black , White, Latino , mixed and Italian- sorry if I forgot someone - speak highly of the POTUS. My wife knows I love MY First Lady , I wear a I Heart Michelle Obama shirt all the time, and as an ex-service member ( US Army Signal Corps, 44th Sig!!) I am as jingoistic as the next man. I stand for the anthem, sing along to Proud to be an American ( I am an African American Male so that is why this is funny)
I joined today because I want to start a movement. Not just a Ohio movement. I asked everyone I know on my contact list and facebook page to snap a picture with a group of fellow voters who voted for Obama early, or even planning to vote on Election day to take a group picture and let's post some We are with Barack photo's. The timing is perfect because Columbus Ohio is having a GOTV rally at the Martin Luther King Center tomorrow from 10:30 until 12:00. I know that we here in Columbus Ohio are not going for the Skit from Mitt. Can anyone tell me if I can publish my DU email address as a place to send me their pictures? Any help on getting this so we can show our force on this is appreciated.
Thank you for being here DU, and I am priviledged to be a DU Newbie!
