It's Officially Obama v. America

Astroturfing WH operatives coming soon to your Republican neighborhood
Ben Smith's scoop about the role of Organizing for America in Wisconsin surprised me. Amanda Terkel's follow-up surprises me even more -- Democrats are bragging about their role in protests that are paralyzing Wisconsin's legislature for the near future, and expanding to the rest of the Midwestern states where right to work-style laws are being debated.

A DNC staffer told The Huffington Post that the group upped its efforts in Wisconsin after Chairman Tim Kaine spoke with local legislators last week. OFA then began organizing turnout for Thursday's statehouse rally and running phone banks in Ohio targeting state senators, which are slated to continue next week. This weekend, organizers have set up door-to-door canvassing in key districts that they hope will likewise put pressure on swing lawmakers.
