Grassroots Organization To Reelect President Opens Greenville Office

President Obama's grassroots organization held its grand opening of its Greenville office Tuesday night.

This is the eleventh regional office to open in North Carolina and the first one in the eastern part of the state.

Laura Jane Glascoff is part of the group "Organizing for America North Carolina." She says, "Having our own office definitely kicks it up a notch. It's a statement to the community that we are fired up and ready to go. We have a home and anyone can come in at anytime and we'll put them to work. We'll have fun too, but we are going to get the president reelected and we have a long way to go."

The organization will have another event on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at their new location at 214 E. Arlington Blvd.

They say they hope to get more young people registered to vote and to gain more volunteers throughout the community.

    Did you know that Obama added $9,145,478,044 to the national debt TODAY ALONE???? He added over $100,000 PER SECOND to the national debt today!!!! Does this "Grassroots" organization know that the national debt has increased by $4.94 TRILLION since Obama took office????

    Obama will be tough to unseat. Think about this. N.C. is one of the poorest states in the union. Almost more people on welfare than working. Do you think those on welfare want to have to get up and go to work every day or get up once a month and go get their check. More people laid off getting 2 years of unemployment checks. Nobody wants to go back to work well for 2 years any way. Government workers want Obama back in office to keep a bigger government. Smaller government means fewer gravy jobs. More people wanting more from the government that is Obama's and the democrats main focus. Keep people dependant on the government and you keep those people down. Obama's followers do not see that it is the government that is actually keeping them down because the government is giving them a check and that can not be bad. But it is a lot like feeding a hog. Once you get him fat you kill him. Once you are totally dependant on the government and it dies so do you.

      Didn't work out very good considering he has added trillions in debt and significantly increased the amount of welfare programs in every conceivable category. He has allowed for a very unfriendly environment for small/medium business and the rest of the middle class. There is an endless list of things that he has either directly or indirectly done to help further the decline of this nation. so yeah, I'd say things are quite good! Are you better off than 4 years ago? No. And if you say yes, you are a delusional lair.

    The Blaze; “Progressives can say mission accomplished. Now it’s phase two.” Invoking Stuart Chase’s “The Road We Are Traveling” and the recent Obama propaganda piece by essentially the same name, Glenn informed viewers that progressives’ “road” has come to an end, and thus, it is now time to “start studying Communism.” And while this machine is “way beyond Barack Obama,” he is, in effect, its prime mover. Recall during his 2008 presidential campaign, Obama said he wanted to “fundamentally transform” the country, and indeed, the entire world. In the words of Maya Angelou: ”The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.” But, Glenn ceded, “Obama is not the first radical.” “Woodrow Wilson and FDR did it too.” He also reminded that when Obama vowed to fundamentally change the nation and the world it was brushed off as merely “campaign rhetoric,” but with progressives, “their words have meaning.” So the president wanted to change the entire structure of the country. In order to do that, Glenn cautioned, one “needs to dismantle the current structure.”

    This Muslim Socialist pretender of a commander in chief has attempted to destroy the U.S. economy and our military. People make the mistake of thinking he is inexperienced and inept but rest assured, he knows exactly what he is doing. He has filled his cabinet and other government positions with nothing but hard core radicals who share his same extremist views and he is well on the way to destroying our social fabric with his class warfare strategy for re-election. He bragged in his election victory speech that, "We are going to fundamentally change this country". Give him four more years and he'll very likely succeed. Instead of being re-elected, he should be put on trial for crimes against the United States and deported back to his native Kenya.

        Lavon, I would respond to your post but I learned a long time ago that arguing with idiots is an exercise in futility.

    I wonder if this office will fly an illegally defaced flag too? I bet if they call the Florida DNC they can give them a link to the Chinese website where it was bought.

    I wonder if Republicans will get the same publicity and prominent position on this webpage when they open their office to STOP OBAMA FROM RE-ELECTION?
