Newspaper Prints Correction

Probably a case of the RPOF trying to use the media to smear / marginalize us again. That was NOT my quote - I have NEVER supported Obama. I sent out an email with an article containing that quote. I thought it was an intersting perspective, that you could argue proved correct. Would the rise of the Tea Party have occured in 2010 if John McCain won the presidency?

Received this from the editor of the newspaper:

Mr. Stevens:

I apologize for not getting back to you yesterday.

This correction will appear Thursday.

St. Johns County Republican state committeeman-elect John Stevens forwarded an email that told an undisclosed recipient “[m]y opinion is that in order for us to save America, [Barack] Obama has to win. If [John] McCain wins then those who consider themselves to be 'conservatives' will be lulled back to sleep." Because of a reporter’s error, the origin of the email was incorrect in a story on Page A-1 Wednesday.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world.

Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has...
