Most of you know this but the job I moved to WPB for is community organizing. I’m only a few months into the job but I can certainly attest to its value and purpose. I have said before that this is the hardest I’ve ever worked and I truly mean it. This is a 50-60 hour work week that has me running all over Palm Beach County but I enjoy it and do it willingly. The organizers I have met are dedicated hard-working individuals who have committed themselves to restoring their communities but according to Palin…
“I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities.”
What the crap is that about? Asinine cracks such as this and others were made throughout the evening and the RNC ate it up as though community organizing is a nonsensical thing to be jeered at. You would think that a party that is supposedly all about the people and doing what’s right for America would show respect and perhaps even praise for community organizations; organizations that have fought and won for the American people concerning a great number of issues such as education, fair housing, healthcare etc… Instead Palin, Guliani and the RNC saw this as an opportunity to discredit organizing while making personal attacks against Obama. Talking about trying too kill two birds with one stone and missing completely. Nice try Palin but both organizing and Obama are targets too full of power and hope for your outbursts of idiocy to bring down. Point-Obama. Point-Organizing. Zip-Palin.
Community organizing is how ordinary people respond to out-of-touch politicians and their failed policies.
