A message from Obama

In order to keep this site going I let google place ads above and around my post. When you click on these ads the site is paid a small fee.

About a week ago Obama ads started popping up and curiosity got the better of me. When I clicked the ad I was taken to Obama's campaign site and prompted to join an email list.

I thought it would be wise to see what the enemy was up to. Today I received my first email from the Obama campaign. I am going to share it with you.

Please do not take this to mean that I in any way support the President. I do not but I do think that you should be aware of his agenda and what to look for in his campaign. Soon his supporters will begin to make these arguments and I predict the media will follow suit.

Unfortunately I don't have time to dissect the email at this moment so please feel free to post comments and suggestions.

I hope to be able to respond appropriately in the coming days. Thanks for all of your support and please pass along the info:

Friend --

This morning, a group of public servants showed up to work at a brand-new agency created to protect everyday Americans from the abuses of Wall Street.

They're the folks of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and they'll be the cops on the beat protecting consumers from predatory credit card and mortgage lenders, bait-and-switch creditors, and anyone trying to make a quick buck by deceiving or manipulating Americans who are just trying to secure their financial future.

Many Americans don't know it, but this bureau is just one part of a sweeping Wall Street reform law -- the most pro-consumer and pro-taxpayer reform of our financial system since the Great Depression -- that President Obama signed a year ago today.

Watch this video to get a quick overview of the law, and a briefing on the special interests trying to undermine it:

Whether you watch the video or not, please share this email with someone.

It's important that everyone knows what this law means for all of us. Simpler mortgages. Clearer credit card rates, fees, and rules. Fairer loan terms. It's based on the simple idea that if you make sure that people get clear information, they'll make the financial decisions that work best for them.

And we can all rest a little easier knowing that our common financial future is more protected from the irresponsibility of a few. This law made structural reforms to ensure that the financial crisis we experienced in 2008 never happens again and that taxpayers aren't on the hook to pay for Wall Street's risky bets.

It's up to you to make sure more people know about this. Most Americans don't have all the details on how this law is working for them, and it's our job to change that.

Take a look, and be sure to pass this one on:

Amazingly, each and every Presidential candidate on the other side opposes this law.

And the same opposition that tried to block it more than a year ago is still alive and well.

Right now, lobbyists are at work trying to weaken the tough regulations this law imposes.

That's no accident -- its provisions are designed to rein in the Wall Street, credit card, and mortgage banking interests these people represent.

As we know, there aren't a whole lot of high-powered lobbyists in Washington looking out for the common good of everyday families.

That's exactly why this law is necessary, and why our growing organization in all 50 states is so important. It's up to us to make sure our friends and neighbors know about it. Watch our video about Wall Street reform today -- and then pass it on:
