Pres. Obama re-election supporters open office in Wilmington


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Political season is in full swing. As President Barack Obama gets into to full re-election campaign mode, some local supporters opened their campaign doors in Wilmington.

Organizing for America North Carolina hosted a grand opening at its office on Wrightsville Avenue tonight. The event welcomed volunteers and highlighted the president's plans if he is indeed re-elected. Political science major at UNCW, Carter Jewell, volunteers her time for a campaign she believes in.

"It's important to me because I’m a student. I’ve seen what the president for young people as well as for Americans, “ Jewell said. “He’s done a lot for people my age. It’s really important for me to come out and be thankful for all that he has done.”

With today's grand opening, Organizing for America North Carolina now has five offices across the state.

Event leaders say the volunteers are what really drive the organization.

4 years is enough for Obama to be riding around in Golf Cart One.

Bad news for all of you

Neither Obama nor Romney will save this country from financial collapse.

Obama has no desire to and Romney has no ability to.

One Bad Ass Mistake

One Bad Ass Mistake America.

People have less money. More debt. No jobs. Great job Obama!

OBAMA FOR 2012!!!

Haters will always hate and racisim will always exist. It never ceases to amaze me how mean spirited you so called "christians" are. You do NOT represent Christ and his true followers. So continue to expose your hatred for OUR sitting President. Where were you when Bush W. was in Office? Where was your voice of displeasure at then. As I recall, I remember people were afraid to voice their opinions against Pres.Bush or they would face the wrath like the Dixie Chicks. Nor did I forget the countless vacations/trips taken by the Bush family while OUR men and women were at war in Iraq. But let Pres. Obama take his wife to a broadway show and all Hell broke loose. Oh and you think that Romney is the best candidate to be the President??? Really?? You kidding me right??? Mr. Obama will be re-elected whether you like it or not.

Speaking of're

Speaking of're the one playing that card. Why is it racist to disagree with Obama's politics? It has nothing to do with the color of his skin. Get that through your head. His policies are not only bad for this country, but he is slowly destroying the free market economy. You think I'm wrong? Take a look around you. Look at businesses today, look at how the regulations are running rampant. Stop thinking in terms of the "greedy rich" and actually think logically.

Have you seen how often Obama goes on vacation? I see a news story about him going either overseas or to Hawaii nearly EVERY week. That is not an exaggeration. He seems to be on AF1 more often than he is on the ground. I'm not saying Presidents can't take vacations, but that's a little excessive. You should look up the statistics about how much it costs to run AF1 with staff and everything else for just a single hour.

People were afraid to voice opinions on Bush? What kind of kool-aid are you drinking? People talked bad about Bush all the time when he was president. And to set the record straight, just because people don't like Obama, doesn't mean they automatically like Bush.

You're either an imbecile or a racist...

...if you think that President Obama is the leader on presidential vacations.

Which is it? Both?

Another idiot

So let me get this straight stupid, if you don't like Obama then you are a racist? That BS won't work this time around. I take it from your post you didn't much care for Bush? I am also guessing you must be a racist also, hating on the white man again. I will vote for whom ever I wish, I could careless what color he is. To be honest I think Obama is a moron, not because of his color but because of his leadership. Deal with it dumb ass.

Indoctrinate the youth

Carter Jewell is one of many naive, young people in the nation whose future has been stolen by poor fiscal policies implemented by politicians across the political spectrum.Their notion of the world is within the confines of academia,which actively promotes liberalism and secularism.Outside the Utopian bubble, here is the real "STATE OF THE UNION".The nation's debt is now approaching $15 trillion.According to the U.S Treasury,it will reach $20 trillion by 2015,more than 100% of the nation's GDP.Do your UNCW professors discuss this rendezvous with our financial armageddon?No one in this country has a bright future with this bearing down upon us.OBAMA HAS EXPEDITED OUR DEMISE!All Obama has done during his Presidency is engage in IRRESPONSIBLE spending that will dwarf George W. Bush, with nothing to show for.From the time of George Washington to George W., it took the nation during this duration to get to $ 12 trillion.Under the Alinsky radical,if relected, Obama will be looking at $ 8 trillion on his watch.Jewell is easy prey to fall for the Saul Alinsky plan promoted by Obama to an ignorant populace.One of the primary components of this plan is to indoctrinate the youth with the feeling of hopelessness and frustration with the current system, therefore they are willing to accept a reformation of a new system shaped in Obama's vision.You are the current day Brown Shirts that Obama suggested in a 2008 speech.His quote" We can not continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the nation's security objective.We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful ,just as strong , just as well-funded".Carter Jewell is a part of a the "NEW SOCIALIST MOVEMENT" that is being embraced by an ignorant and lazy electorate.Bottom line, there is no viable plan to sustain this dependency culture.There has been no appreciable improvement in almost any aspect of American life during his Presidency.Just look at the reality of the world in your daily travels.

In the foreign arena, Israel is forcing Obama's hand by suggesting they will attack Iran.They are wanting to see whether he is truly an agent of the PLO and Arab sympathizer or a strong ally of our Judeo-Christian foundation.According to the Haaretz daily newspaper in Israel,many Israeli citizens are hoping that Americans come to their senses and defeat Obama in 2012.They have never felt more exposed.The CIA and the Mossad will take a close look at Obama if he is reelected.

Shame on You


Shame on you for attacking and devaluing a 20-something college student in a public forum.
How dare you make such accusations about someone you don't even know.

I work with many college students and know Carter well.
Ms. Jewell is ANYTHING BUT naive, ignorant and lazy.
Carter is extremely intelligent, well-informed, fair, passionate, faithful, and hard working.
The world is truly a better place with her in it.

I respect your right to believe the propaganda and nonsense out there about Obama.
I don't agree and will choose not to listen to such slander.
I also feel that you're free to attack a public figure such as our president, If that's the kind of person you choose to be.

But you have no place publicly attacking a passionate young person Especially one you don't even know.
I'll leave the adjectives describing your behavior for you to figure out...



You are one paranoid dude. Stop believing all those junk emails.

Robert Green III

So is he a Muslim liberal socialist, communist, fascist? This rant of yours makes no more sense than K-Blue.
The only ignorant populace is you.

Guest 1165....

Guest 1165...Any leader of America who bows to Muslim leaders all the while stripping this nation of all that gives it value is exactly what Mr. Green said he is. By the way, if you're out there listening Mr. Obama or posse, why did you lie about being a Christian the other day. You are NOT a Christian and you have offended me and millions of others. Stop lying!!!!! I'm sick of it!!!

Guest 1165

You make no more sense than Robert.

Guest6858, take an antidote

Guest6858, take an antidote for the anti Obama koolaid that you are drunk on. The President is an American. Clinton's campaign couldn't prove otherwise in the 2008 Democratic primary contests nor could McCain and the Republicans prove anything in the 2008 general election.

Who was that Saudi guy that our former foul-up in chief, none other than George W (Mission Accomplished) Junior Bush was photographed holding hands with???

Take your tinfoil hat. If you play with firearms, be careful.

Guest 99x...

Guest 99x....I'm sorry for you that you believe the hype. It will just turn out to hurt you. Saudi guys are a whole lot different than Muslims and if you really and truly don't understand that, there is no hope for you.

The Truth

Some people handle the truth carelessly; Others never touch it at all.

6858, did you really mean to

6858, did you really mean to say that Saudi guys are a whole lot different than Muslims?


Saudis are Moslems, you idiot. What do you think they are? Their government is Unitary Islam. You have no business on this board if you don't even know that.

I'm sorry 1165..

I'm sorry 1165...I meant Radical Muslims, you idiot...

Right, 6858, the Saudis are

Right, 6858, the Saudis are not radical Muslims. All of the radical Saudi Muslims died in the 9-11 attacks on America.


99x....Do you really believe that? We're in worse trouble than I thought.

Destorying America

If "the messiahs" plan was not to rip our nation apart, what would he have done differently?

Destorying(?) America

Did you go to school today or did you take your lunch?


Is this Robert? What are you trying to say?

Obama is the best we've got

Let's be honest with ourselves, he's the best option available. He is the best candidate by default. Let him finish what he started. The economy is starting to rebound, slowly. But slow growth is generally more lasting. I am seeing more trucks on the road carrying building supplies, and my taxes are not up, and the wars are winding down. He prevented what everyone agreed was going to be a disaster. He's got my vote. He should get yours.

Best we've got?

Best we've got says who? Are you kidding? He is a sorry excuse for a leader, he got your sheep vote, he damn sure won't get mine.

Grand Old, I never thought I

Grand Old, I never thought I could say this, but I truly feel sorry for the pathetic state of the Republican Party.

Really, what do you have?

Newt the lobbyist, on the very payroll of one of the entities that you Repubs blame for America's financial mess.

You have Romney.... a great creator of jobs, too bad in China. He also is a very talented author of health care reform, so good in fact, the Obama plan is modeled in large part on it!

In the remote event the choice between the two above finds himself to be viable against Obama, they will have to deal with the effect of Ron Paul siphoning off votes from the mainstream GOP candidate.

Clinton owes Ross Perot a debt of gratitude for his first term election. Obama will owe Ron Paul a similar debt later this year.

Is this the 1st?

Is this the first release from Organizing for America North Carolina or have there been others?

Are you serious?

No doubt, he is your best option if you are a Marxist or Socialist.

If you are a life long entitlement recipient, and don't want to get off the taxpayer funded gravy train, he's your best option.

But if you're a taxpaying worker or investor, he's about as bad as it can get.

As to taxes not rising, the key word is YET.

Let him be re-elected, and watch how quickly he will go to work to try and bully tax increases through. He has to if he makes the same type of public funded promises he made prior to November, 2008.

Numbers talk; and they tell no lies. Taxes must increase if he wants to continue his marxist agenda.
