    Obama Grassroots Group Using Newtown to Raise Money

    by Keith Koffler on January 25, 2013, 11:26 am

    Organizing for Action, the newly formed “grassroots” group that will help President Obama try to promote and pass his agenda, today sent out a fundraising and membership-building email that cites the Newtown massacre as a reason to “pull together” behind the president.

    The email, which was sent out under Vice President Joe Biden’s name and is signed by him, includes a link to a page on the Organizing for Action website that asks people to provide their email address. The page has a separate link that takes viewers to another area of the website where they can donate.

    In the message, Biden talks about Obama’s gun control agenda, and then he tugs at the heart strings:

    Right now, President Obama is counting on you.

    Each one of us needs to speak up and demand action. It doesn’t matter whether you live in a big city or a small town like Newtown, Connecticut. When our fellow Americans are victims of senseless violence, we all pull together as one American family.

    Let’s get this done, folks.

    Whether the action we take saves one life or 1,000, it matters.

    Thank you,

    Joe

    Organizing for Action was created this month out of the Obama 2012 campaign and is believed to possess an email list more than 20 million strong and include thousands of activists.

    And most members of Congress.

    So how was the NRA going to use Newtown to raise money???

    The NRA has been signing up new members at a record rate in response to Biden/Obama/Feinstein, not Newtown.

    Matty you get that don't you??? 

    When mentally ill criminals use guns that they steal to commit murder, the 99.99999999999999999% of gun owners who use them responsibly quietly gasp in disgust knowing that looneys will use that situation to try and disarm law abiding citizens.

    The NRA wanted to hear as little as possible about Newtown.  They want it go away.

    Another day has passed and none of the 400 million guns legally owned by Americans has been used to commit mass murder
