from the perspective of any community organizer who works in allegedly disadvantaged community's,you can see the need to desperately find solutions to motivate 4,5,and sixth generation welfare families,not the truly poor,disabled or hopelessly recidivist criminal which in most cases are emotionally or mentally ill. these welfare families need these programs to wean their dependency on the system,the excuses for them are rapidly fading,I have asked many people from all over the world that come here and work at anything and hold our free education as though they won a lottery what makes them work and study so hard,the two answers most given are,where they come from,if you don't work you don't eat and there are no govt. checks handed to you,you swim or sink,and these people come here with the additional challenge of learning a new language-i find this amazing that with some of our own 6th generation welfare families most of them still haven't learned our language yet... keep this socialist welfare idea where it is truly needed,with those that prefer to be totally dependent on the state.

He is too inempt to do his job and he can't shut up. I've never seen any other president on TV EVERY day still campaigning. He is CLUELESS and a DISASTER for this country. What an a/s/s. 2010 and 2012 can not come soon enough.
AND are there ANY REAL Journalists out there? If so, research and report ACCURATE Obamination facts. While many will call you a trader now, you will be a HERO to this country by doing your job with sincerity.

So what jobs did GW the Moron do before he decided to kill over 4,500 american troops all in the name of christianity.

Many people will agree GW Bush was not a good president. However, it is time to STOP bringing up his name every time someone has a LEGITIMATE complaint about Obamination. You've used Bush over and over. This is NO longer about Bush. It is about the moron that was voted into office because the country was angry about Bush's incompetence. Now Obamination has made Bush look QUITE GOOD.

It is very much about undoing the damage Bush did to our standing in the world and making progress after eight slow years of retardation.

You are making the community organizers job sound waay to complicated.You don't have to motivate them to work or get their lives under control.You just have to motivate them to elect Democrat politicians and keep up black ministers.Presto! Yo' community is organized.

Pres. Obozo was a "Community Organizer" and I am sure he thinks he was good at it. If he want to do communiyt service let him do us a favor and resign and he can go work in the community.

He's got it backwards. We aren't here to serve our government.
It appears that we, as private citizens, not government 'volunteers', have done very, very well providing organizations and monies to help the environment, the downtrodden, victims of natural disaster, etc. We, as private citizens, give more money and aid to the world than the rest of all the countries.
He would love nothing better than to have a everyone conscripted, in some fashion, to the government.
We don't need this pompous, holier than thou, lecturing us about yet another perceived shortcoming that doesn't exist.
(I wonder how many bags he actually packed)

Socialism, communism, marxism and fascism have exactly what in common with freedom and (your words) progress?
All failed philosophies of demented men.
We should have embraced Stalin, Mao, et al , not vilified them! They got it right according to your statements.
