    Kind of hard to believe that CBS is wanting it stopped,,,,seems like hussein is losing his friends....

    March 19, 2010

    (CBS) Richard Grenell served as the spokesman for the last four U.S. Ambassadors to the United Nations: Zalmay Khalilzad, John Bolton, John Danforth and John Negroponte.

    The White House Office of Health Reform Director Nancy-Ann DeParle has been feverishly sending out unsolicited email messages to federal employees in an effort to build support for President Barack Obama’s health reform package over the last several weeks.

    DeParle’s unsolicited emails have been regularly coming to some federal employees’ official government email inboxes for weeks without permission or request, causing some federal employees to feel threatened by the overt political language.

    The Department of State employees, who receive hundreds of official government emails every day, have complained about the annoying and partisan emails but are nervous to go public for fear of retribution. The emails are addressed to the federal employees by name and use the official .gov address.

    The unsolicited emails also request that the federal employees take action in order to ensure that Obama’s health reform package is passed and the federal budget isn’t at risk for bankruptcy. One federal employee was so concerned about DeParle’s language in one email that he questioned whether his department’s budget would be cut or eliminated without passage of Obama’s bill. DeParle uses scare tactics that some assume are meant as threats:

    “No ifs, ands or buts about it -- if we do nothing to reform our broken health care system, costs will continue to skyrocket and break the budgets of American families, small businesses and the Federal Government,” read the March 12th email from DeParle.

    But should federal employees be subjected to partisan propaganda? What precedent does it send for the White House to use the federal work force for their partisan agenda? And shouldn’t we let State Department federal workers concentrate on pressing issues like the Israeli-Palestinian issue or the Iranian nuclear weapons issue? Why would Department of Transportation employees have to worry about forwarding The White House’s partisan emails to their address books?

    Federal employees are public servants not partisan foot soldiers for President Obama and shouldn’t have to decide whether a partisan White House request can be ignored without consequences.

    DeParle’s solicitation requests federal employees act on behalf of the President’s agenda by making this directive: “You can help raise awareness by sharing this email with your friends, family and online networks,” read the March 11th email from DeParle.

    But what would happen if the federal employee doesn’t act in the way The White House is suggesting? Would there be retribution? Has The White House requested that another federal agency monitor who is acting on behalf of Obama’s health reform bill and who is not?

    Turning the President’s partisan agenda into White House directives to the federal workforce has crossed the line and should be stopped immediately.

    Is there a member here who knows someone at The State Dept. who could get this communist scumbags e-mail address?

    I've heard stories during my life about how harassment and intimidation can work both ways.

    Maybe somebody could publish her e-mail address here?!

    Warmest regards, Kit Thomas

    Dirty Deals are in the process of being maid right now, all they have to do is get a few more to fall on the sword and it will pass.


    Mark my words when they get voted out of office in November because they voted for this health care bill, they and their associates will be given jobs in the one hundred plus commissions and bureaus the bill creates. Probably even make more money than they do now.

    Them Democrats had this all planned ahead of time.

    Well, I'm shocked...shocked and appalled that Government workers are being subjected to emails advocating even more government spending.


    Federal employees being the innocent, halo-clad proponents of fiscal restraint they are, this must insult every fiber of their being.

    Voting them out won't solve anything! Because we just vote others in that will do the same.

    Voting them out and in a way that they take nothing with them (pension, health care or sucerity personal) WILL solve the reaccuring problem.

    Its time for the 28 ammendment, BUT it will take a LEADER to interduce it. Its out there on the internet and been emailed by lots of people.

    When you leave public office all you should be given and take with you is a "so long,and a Thanks"


    I wish there was spell check on this site!
