Republicans For Obama, A Group That’s Existed Since 2006, May Get More Traction

Posted by | May 15, 2011 13:56 | Filed under: Top Stories

With increasing discontent with the Republican presidential field, there could be more interest in the group “Republicans for Obama.”

Republicans for Obama is a grassroots organization of proud party members who all share one important trait— we are Americans first and Republicans second. (Even if it is a close second.) Founded in late 2006 as part of the nationwide effort to encourage then-Senator Obama to run for the Presidency, our volunteer-run, grassroots group now includes thousands of members from across the nation. Together, we represent a cross-section of the millions of Republican and conservative independents who voted for President Obama in 2008.

And are they happy with their Democratic president? Seems so.

President Obama has fought to find common ground and move our nation forward. His stimulus bill of 2009 included almost $300 billion in tax cuts. When the Bush-era tax cuts were set to expire at the end of 2010, President Obama signed compromise legislation extending them for another two years. When some Democrats demanded a single-payer health care system and then a “government option,” the President supported a moderate health care reform bill.

While we continue to debate and address many issues on which we all have strong opinions—abortion, gay rights, the relationship between church and state, to name a few—we will continue to support the President’s efforts to break our government’s paralysis and meet the challenges we face as a nation.
