This post is dedicated to our commenter, Ex-Dissident, who doesn’t feel like celebrating the Fourth. Perhaps this will change his mind a little:
It’s a great idea! A 4th of July celebration to raise funds to defeat our Broken-Promise Prez.
FOOs — Friends of Obama — probably won’t see this get-together as ‘patriotic’, but it certainly is an honorable dissent for those of us who want Obama to finish off his Carteresque reign with the same one term in office for which Carter is so justifiably famous.
America is too small, with too many bitter clingers, to contain a super-personage of Obama’s philosophy and ambitions and sparkling intellect. Not only does he need a global canvas, but Obama would be better served — as would we — by moving on to head the United Nations. Perhaps he could oversee its move from New York to Brussels?
There is a live-stream broadcast of the telethon starting at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (I’m surprised it’s not Daylight Savings Time, but perhaps it is?). At any rate, a great line-up of big names has volunteered — at least I hope they’re volunteers. Here’s a list of all the headliners who signed up to help.

In May, The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama raised nearly $265,000 in May, according to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission last month. They spent $300,000, and finished May with $168,000 cash on hand. The group also reported $145,000 in debt.
The MSM seldom links to anything on the right. So here you go: headquarters of a group who is fighting back:
Hat tip: Andrea Shea King, who never gives up.
By the way, this effort to Defeat Obama is an ongoing project. You can donate any time, not just today.
