Live with President Obama: Organizing for Action

President Obama joins Organizing for Action following the State of the Union address. He thanks his supporters for helping him make his vision into a reality, and asks his supporters to tweet (#jobsnow) in support.

 

"Me saying it doesn't mean anything - to get it signed, to get it passed, to get it done it takes everyone."

 

Organizing for action is an interesting organization as it is fairly new, and, as I understand it, is now a Political Action Committee formed out of Obama's former campaign committee. This means it has potential legs even following the president's term. We shall see as we move further into his term.
