Time for Activists to Mobilize Behind Obama's Progressive AgendaRandy Shawbyline‚ Nov. 13‚ 2012
Four years ago, activists who had worked day and night for months to elect Barack Obama returned to their regular lives and waited for the new President to implement Change. We know how that turned out. Activists now must write a new script for the post-2012 election by pushing the President to keep his progressive campaign commitments on taxes, the budget, and, most urgently, comprehensive immigration reform, where the time for action is now. Obama is already saying the right things on these core issues, yet many have doubts about his future actions. This makes it imperative for labor unions, MoveOn, Daily Kos and all the other activists, groups, and websites that helped re-elect Obama to continue mobilizing voters behind their own and the Presidentís progressive campaign agenda.
