Obama Sells Stimulus Plan on YouTube

If 2008 was the first YouTube presidential election, then it looks like Barack Obama's might be the first YouTube administration.

His office and many of his team have taken to YouTube, where they've posted a 6 minute 47 second video that puts the hard-sell on Obama's $800-some billion economic stimulus plan, which he says will save or create 3 million new jobs and which he wants to get going as soon as he takes the oath of office next Tuesday.

The video is a series of talking-head interviews with some of Obama's top team members, including climate czar Carol Browner (EPA chief under Clinton), Health Secretary-designee Tom Daschle (former South Dakota senator and recent wearer of artsy/vaguely European eyeglasses) and Obama's top economic adviser, Larry Summers, and is introduced by Mona Sutphen, Obama's deputy chief of staff.

Watch the video -- which, by the way, appears largely to have been filmed in Washington, here.

The Untold Story of American Workers Vs. Illegal Immigration
January 12, 2009

by William Gheen
of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC

Across America a terrible story unfolds trapping honest and hard working Americans between the proverbial rock and a hard space. It is a story that I have gleaned from conversations with those directly impacted. It is a story I have learned from reading between the lines in the print media.

Many of America's print media publications are now facing well deserved financial extinction due to their penchant for bias, censorship, and promotions of unpopular political positions, rather than reporting facts. No issue illustrates their heavy bias more than illegal immigration.

American readers are bombarded on a daily basis with the latest illegal alien sob stories about how illegal aliens are getting laid off, being profiled, discriminated against, or finding it harder to get licenses and government benefits from mean and hateful Americans, while the most important part of the story is conspicuously absent!

The Americans who are falling down in historic numbers are not in these articles or publications!

The propagandists at the newspapers should take heed, when I remind them of two important things. One, people read the news to learn the facts and not the asserted political positions of the paper. Two, readers look for characters in articles, as well as in movies and books, who they can identify with.

Americans are losing their wages, jobs, homes, health, and sanity in numbers unprecedented since the Great Depression, yet you will not hear their trials and troubles in your elitist newspapers. And if you do get a glimpse of the horror of your neighbors and fellow countrymen, you will most certainly never hear of what I will speak of next...

And you can use this toll free number, 1-877-210-5351,
for the congressional switchboard to contact your reps.
