 Here’s the start of The Great Leap Forward in America:

US President Barack Obama mustered his powerful campaign army on Monday, calling on his millions of supporters to lobby on behalf of his budget and economic plan.

The appeal to back the president was made in an email and video sent out by "Organizing for America," the organization which morphed out of Obama’s campaign machinery to push his agenda when he entered the White House.

In the video, Mitch Stewart, the director of Organizing for America, urged the president’s supporters to take part in the "Organizing for America Pledge Project."

"The pledge project is an ambitious effort to map out and identify support for President Obama’s economic blueprint across towns and communities in America," Stewart said.

"We’re doing that by asking people to pledge your support for the broad initiatives outlined in President Obama’s economic plan.

"Once you do, we will ask you to build support in your own communities by forwarding this pledge by email, by knocking on doors and by making phone calls," he said.

"We will show in every state, in every congressional district the hunger, for leadership and long range thinking that’s in too short supply here in Washington."

Stewart said Obama’s budget provides a "bold blueprint for our country’s future".

"It addresses three of the most pressing challenges facing our nation: health care, energy and education," he said.

"That’s the good news. The bad news is that as a result the special interests and the old habits in Washington will dig in even more.

"It’s up to you to make sure that they don’t stand in our way.

"By pledging and building support you will be taking the first steps towards establishing a nationwide grassroots network, neighborhood by neighborhood, standing side by side with President Obama as we bring about our agenda for change."
