Obama group to set up shop in N.C.

A national political group built on President Barack Obama’s campaign is coming to North Carolina.

Organizing for America, a project of the Democratic National Committee, is expected to announce Tuesday the hire of two staffers in Raleigh, Barb Barrett reports. The group will conduct what it calls "listening tours" around the state in coming weeks, focusing on education, energy and health care. The group hopes to build support for Obama’s agenda.

The group’s inaugural N.C. state director, Lindsay Siler, is a former field director and public policy director for Planned Parenthood in North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Virginia. She also worked for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in Iowa.

The new field director, Gregory Jackson, led the group D.C. for Obama, which sent volunteers to key states during the presidential campaign.

Re: Obama group to set up shop in N.C.

As a moderate independent, I attended the recent Listening Tour in Asheville with other independents. Fantastic and refreshing after so much exposure to extremist propoganda.

It pays to check out the "facts" and wild statements that are so common now. Don't be a lemming! Use your search engine to check out "propoganda techniques" on independent non-partisan sites - very informative. Soon you'll be able to spot the tricks used, such as those in other comments.

My guess is that yes they are affiliated with ACORN and will probably help on the census. We should watch this group closely. And where is the money coming from to operate this office? State party funds? National party funds? ACORN funds (which come from the US taxpayers)? Soros?

Any ACORN affiliation?
