Tech4Obama

Source: Huffington Post

Recent polls from Gallup and Pew have been pretty hard on President Obama. So given a recent blast of support from the tech community, perhaps the administration should start relying on SurveyMonkey instead to get the electorate's pulse.

Left-leaning tech luminaries and execs have come out to back President Obama with a new website and a series of online videos. The initiative, called "Tech4Obama" or T4O, mainly consists of interviews with tech personalities like LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, Dropbox founder Drew Houston, and Craigslist founder Craig Newmark giving their reasons why they endorse the Obama presidency and explaining how the president encourages innovation, especially in Silicon Valley and other tech hotspots.

This is really no surprise. I am in high tech and we work hard, have vision, MAKE SOMETHING, and like people with vision. We are not like the Romney's and the Wall St. crooks who make nothing and are just leeches. Meg Whitman is not high tech. She is from retail and I bet she fails in high tech.

Obamacare- what it really is -Obama must tell this story in the next debate

Obama should really tell the story what it really is. Because we have a system in place to insure only healthy people we had to make a compromise to insure young people who have preexisting conditions that are long term problems.
i know a young women who has two terrible life long problems one is an auto immune system disease and another is an issue with her reproductive system. This person could never get insurance on her own. A second example is any Young person with a congenital problem or diabetes.

None of these people are insurable under the prior system.. Since we don't have single payer we have to deal with what we have a for profit health system that tells these young people to go jump in a lake.

Obama had to make a deal to go with a mandate to get coverage for these people. It is for the young who can't get insurance. It was the only way they could get covered.

Romney- The wimp factor

Deep down in the psyche of the nation when it comes to choosing a president is the "wimp factor". Americans hate wimps. When Romney buckled to Limbaugh when he denigrated Sandra Fluke for a week, the Americans saw what he was made of. We still believe in chivalry and defending women.
The best Romney could come up with was "those aren't the words I would use". I believe this burned into the psyche of Americans.

Clinton had a similar moment with Sister Soulja and he did not back down. We don't always agree with our presidents but we will not accept wimps.

Time to donate

we can crush this bastard now. Last night we donated again to Elizabeth Warren and Barack Obama. They only have 50 million and we have 88 million. 4 Years ago we set a record at $150 million for Sept.. Let's break that record and go down ticket.

$5, $10,$15,$20 anything can help skip the starbucks and any other spending and make one last contribution.

The real geniuses-Plouffe and Axelrod

I am so sick of hearing that Rove is a genius. He won one count them one national election-2004. He lost 2000 and everything else was winning for republicans in the south as it turned away from the last democrats.

Plouffe and Axelrod- beat Hilary
Plouffe and Axelrod- got the first African American elected
Plouffe and Axelrod- Has Romney running around with his head cut off.

these guy's are good.

It's time to donate and let's all start calling- The final push

Well, here we are on the way to a victory. Romney is running out of money. I called the last election. We can all call from home. The Obama campaign sets it up so you can do that.

NOW IS OUR TIME. DONATE and CALL

Thank you Service person who taped Mitt

In the words of Sean "You are a great American". This is way better than leaving your DNA in the food. You must be at home with a smile from ear to ear.
You may be bringing down the entire republican party. They(people at the fundraiser) may have been looking down their nose at you but you have the last laugh.

THANK YOU.
