How can we change the news cycle for Obama?
Remember the times we sent dozens of flower arrangements as thank yous to various people?

I have been sitting here thinking for hours what can we positively do as Obama supporters to turn a negative into a positive.

Let's get some ideas going folks! One idea I thought of is to have so many flower and balloon arrangements sent to his main office for him and Michelle and on every card it says "yes we can" on it all sent on the same day for max impact and hopefully enough sent to get on the news cycle...

I was reading a diary in Kos for the past hour about a government teacher in DC who just decided sadly he can't vote in November if its Hillary and I thought there is so much anger on all the blogs these days.

So much passion...but instead of infighting why don't we do something? Something positive to support him? A lot of us have given extra $$ to his campaign and that is good but we don't see news cycles from that except once a month when he does good...

Any ideas???

1. The problem is MSM loves the story. They want to keep this
going right up to the convention. They'll promote Obama every so often and fawn all over Hillary. The only things that will change the news cycle are dead white girls and/or celebrities arrested for major crimes.
