After State of the Union, Obama calls supporters


President Obama dropped in on a phone call with supporters after his State of the Union on Tuesday night to urge them to organize around his call for action on agenda items ranging from immigration reform to gun control and job creation.

The call was organized by Organizing for Action, the new 501(c)4 established to promote Obama’s legislative agenda.

“Tweet your support of my plan to create jobs and strengthen the middle class,” Obama said on the call, urging supporters to use the hashtag #jobsnow.

He noted that the call was the first one he was making after his 2013 address to Congress. And he thanked those involved in the group and called on them to remain organized.

“I’m grateful to you guys. I appreciate everything you’ve done,” he said as he concluded the call. “I hope what I said tonight resonated with you, but remember that me saying it doesn’t mean anything. To get it passed; to get it signed; to get it implemented; to get it done – that’s going to require a big push from you guys.”
