Pledge Project Today!

President Obama has asked us to canvass our neighborhoods today, talking one-on-one with members of our community about his budget plan. The pledge asks supporters to invest in what our President refers to as the three areas most critical to our future: Energy, Health care, and Education.

Click here if you want to sign the pledge. If you'd rather sign the pledge in person on this sunny spring day, come find us in Central Square, Harvard Square, Porter Square, or Davis Square. We'll be there from 10am-2pm, and we'd love to talk to you.

Even if you can't come out today, we would really like to hear from you. In the comments section, please tell us what's on your mind. What do you think of the President's budget plan? How do you feel about signing the pledge? What are your reservations? What do you hope the pledge will accomplish?

What do you think?

I'm excited to be doing something to help President Obama, but I have mixed feelings about the support pledge. In the campaign, there were moments when the strategy wasn't clear, or didn't make sense to me. But eventually everything made sense and worked pretty well. So I'm fairly confident that this is part of a larger plan, and I want to help that plan succeed. I'd really like to hear more about what we'll be doing next month, or through the rest of the year.

When the stimulus package was first presented and subsequently passed, I felt that it didn't go far enough. However, I believe that President Obama's budget fills in some gaps in the stimulus package by appropriating necessary funds for long-term investment in energy, health care, and education. The budget fight is going to be tough, but I think we can win it!

I support President Obama's efforts to broaden our investment in renewable energy, health care and education. While I don't agree with all the specifics in his proposals, the President has made it clear he is open to and interested in hearing such feedback.

I am impressed with the President's ability to look at our pressing economic problems long range and incorporate his goals for energy, health care and education into his plan. I hope the American people will have patience and give this plan and our president time to work.

As for the pledge, I'm glad he is reenergizing his supporters. I'm not sure that this activity will provide an accurate picture of support across the country but it is a good start.

Good luck CSfC! Wish I could be with you today!

My wife and I just finished a couple hours of clipboard duty in Harvard Square. (Warming up over coffee now.)

Getting people to stop is the hard part. There is a lot of support out there, but cynicism is also seeping in.

I think winning the presidency was the easy part. Gobama!
