A Challenge to all Jews
Just for fun, a reminder video of how Obama won:

January 18 Speaker: Lu Busse

Lu Busse, Member of The 9-12 Project Advisory Board (national), has a
Master's degree from Northwestern University in Illinois and worked as an
allied medical professional for 30 years. Lu describes her most rewarding
professional experience as the two decades she worked with cochlear implant
recipients along with their families, surgeons, and audiologists.
As president of a small homeowner's association, Lu persuaded over 2/3 of
the property owners to vote for dissolution after the Colorado General
Assembly passed an onerous new law - her personal victory in reducing
governmental control on individuals.

After advocating for some political issues and candidates over the years,
introduction of TARP I legislation in fall of 2008 motivated her to work
toward restoring our Republic and its Constitution for all generations. Lu
joined The 9/12 Project in March 2009 and was elected Chair of its Colorado
leadership team 3 months later. She helped found The 9/12 Project Colorado

Lu was appointed to the national 9/12 Project Advisory Board in February
2010 and currently is its state coordinator for Colorado. Her 6-year-old
grandson and 3-year-old granddaughter inspire and motivate her to volunteer
numerous hours per week to The 9/12 Project and its activities.
