President Obama's Campaign Vilifies Republicans - Partisan Politics?

Pres. Obama looks up and away
from reality

We usually try to stay out of politics. However, the latest ploy by President Obama, and his campaign for re-election, has us at the boiling point. Today, we got our hands on an email sent out to Pres. Obama's supporters for his re-election. In the letter (see full letter below), the campaign manager for Obama for America, Jim Messina, requests action through Twitter, and other media forums, to pass the so called "American Jobs Act."
We find it appalling that our President finds it necessary to play partisan politics after publicly stating that he proposed bipartisan legislation and bipartisan this or that. The man is moving to divide the country.
What we see here is a plot to demonize and vilify the entire Republican Party for attempting to be fiscally conservative. He has mobilized his "grass roots" followers to bash the entire party for not passing a bill that he had to know would not be passed, or even voted on.
We ask this simple question - Is it possible, just possible, that Pres. Obama made his jobs plan knowing full well that Republicans would not pass it, simply so that he could vilify the Republicans just like he tried to vilify "corporate" jet owners?  (for more on "corporate" vs business jets click here)
With a reelection year in full sight, and antics like calling out Republicans for not silencing people who chose to boo homosexual service members, and instead stating that he (Pres. Obama) supports all of the service members, yet at the same time trying to cut service member’s benefits and retirement pay, is more than we care to hear out of two sides of one mouth.
When will the bickering end and when will he accept that the American people are simply tired of mortgaging our future for a jobs bill that we will be as ineffective as the last two passed? Let us be clear, THIS IS NOT PAID FOR as claimed by Pres. Obama. It WILL be paid for by HIGHER TAXES on the people who employ the rest of us.
So, we call on you, our loyal followers, to counter this rediculous campaing through our own campaign for fiscal responsiblity.  Mobilize and call/ write/ Tweet/ smoke signal all of Congress, and the President, and let them know that being financial responsible is not about political parties.  It is simply a way of life for millions of Americans. 
Until someone can provide us with a better answer, we will be sitting here with what is left in our wallets held tight to our chest. - BadMoney
Please see the full email from the Obama for America campaign below -
"Friend --
President Obama is in Dallas today urging Americans who support the American Jobs Act to demand that Congress pass it already.
Though it's been nearly a month since he laid out this plan, House Republicans haven't acted to pass it. And House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is out there actually bragging that they won't even put the jobs package up for a vote -- ever.
It's not clear which part of the bill they now object to: building roads, hiring teachers, getting veterans back to work. They're willing to block the American Jobs Act -- and they think you won't do anything about it.
But here's something you can do: Find Republican members of Congress on Twitter, call them out, and demand they pass this bill.
Be the first to use our new tool and tweet for jobs.
Here's why we built this new tool, and why it's important.
If you've written letters or sent email to Congress before, you know it can be a frustrating experience -- sometimes it takes them weeks to respond, and sometimes they don't respond at all.
But many members of Congress personally receive the messages sent to them on Twitter, so you have a better chance of getting your message directly to them.
And even if they don't respond, your message will be public -- front and center for everyone who follows you or your representative. That means their staff, other constituents, and the media will see the mounting pressure.
So tweet for jobs now:
If you don't use Twitter, you can also contact someone else who needs to hear from you about this bill: The editor of your local paper. We have a tool that lets you send a letter to the editor, and even gives you facts and tips to help you write the most effective note you can. Write one now:
The American Jobs Act is not controversial legislation.
Ideas like rebuilding our roads and bridges, repairing our public schools, and keeping teachers in our classrooms are all ideas the Republicans have said they would support or have even proposed themselves.
But they're so dead set on preventing anything from getting done on President Obama's watch that they will reverse, deny, or ignore what they've said and done in the past -- even if it costs more American jobs.
And remember: They're willing to cost you and any other American your job, or your chance at a new job, because they think that doing nothing won't cost them theirs. Tweet at Republican members of Congress now and tell them you want a vote on the jobs bill right away:
Or write a letter to the editor:
I know we've been asking a lot of you lately, and all of us here would have loved to give you a break this week after all the emails we've been sending. But the reality is that we're building a grassroots organization from the ground up even as we're supporting the President in battles that need to be won right now. And that means we've got to be willing to stay focused week after week from now through the election.
Thanks again to all of you who donated to the campaign before the end of the third quarter, and for everything else you do to have the President's back.
Jim Messina
Campaign Manager
Obama for America"
