Dear Friend,

Last week, I announced United We Serve – a nationwide call to service challenging you and all Americans to volunteer this summer and be part of building a new foundation for America.

And when I say “all,” I mean everyone – young and old, from every background, all across the country. We need individuals, community organizations, corporations, foundations, and our government to be part of this effort.

Today, for the official kick off of United We Serve, members of my administration have fanned out across America to participate in service events and encourage all Americans to join them.

The First Lady is rolling up her sleeves and getting to work too. But before she headed out today, she asked me to share this message with you.

Our nation faces some of the greatest challenges it has in generations and we know it’s going to take a lot of hard work to get us back on track.

While Michelle and I are calling on every American to participate in United We Serve, the call to service doesn’t end this fall. We need to stay involved in our towns and communities for a long time to come. After all, America’s new foundation will be built one neighborhood at a time – and that starts with you.

Thank you,
President Barack Obama

Got that in my email inbox the other day.

On Gmail, no less- interesting, that- they by and large supported Obama in the election- makes one wonder how they got my email address, since I have NEVER emailed the Whte House, and especially not from that address.

Don't know about you, comrade, but it makes me want to go grab a shovel and get to work. (Note my SEVERELY dubious smirk)

Guaran-dam-tee if the Bush White House had done this, the Leftards would have been all over it. But we won't hear a peep from them-- it's their rock star, Barack Hussein.

EDIT to add: if I were to use my government email account to send an email supporting a candidate or his policies, I'd be in SEVERE trouble. How is it different when it's the POTUS? IT's not HIS network, and I goddamn sure as hell didn't ASK to receive his propaganda...

Yup, I also got spammed by both Obama and his wife. Although I didn't really pay attention to the contents as I figured they didn't read the email I sent first(regarding the Customs & Border Patrol knife banning issue), which is probably what put me on their 'send spam to' list.
