Robert Gibbs Gives Me the Perfect Birthday Present

First of all-
Thank You Robert Gibbs!

Yesterday, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs defended the President's visit to Notre Dame, citing the overwhelming support of students and Catholics. In particular, Gibbs referred to 23 student groups that have supported the President. I wonder who they are??? Check out these clips I found below (click to enlarge). I am so glad that our work is being used as supporting evidence by the White House. How awesome. LEFTY'S WIN!

South Bend Obama Supporters Stay Positive

In lieu of President Obama's upcoming visit to Notre Dame, local supporters are gathering together to express their support. Members of the ND College Democrats spoke with organizers in April about what would be the best way to support the president, and this is what we all came up with (click to enlarge):

Basically, we felt that it would be best to stay positive and avoid partisanship. We wanted to avoid counterprotests or anything that would sink to the level of the Terrys and Keyes types. Operations are being headed up by Jennifer Peck. The group responsible has a facebook group to join if you'd like. I encourage everyone who is in South Bend and has free time to head to the organizing meeting tonight at 6pm. Details are below:
