Obama Rallies his Minions to ‘manufacture’ Support?

The White House has dismissed the anger expressed about health-care legislation as “manufactured,” because conservative groups have helped organize opponents to go to these meetings.

I just received an email from Obama’s campaign with this plea:

That’s why Organizing for America is putting together thousands of events this month where you can reach out to neighbors, show your support, and make certain your members of Congress know that you’re counting on them to act.

But these canvasses, town halls, and gatherings only make a difference if you turn up to knock on doors, share your views, and show your support. So here’s what I need from you: Can you commit to join at least one event in your community this month?
