A touch of family, a couple of friends, a barbeque, and the national news. Mix them all together and what do you get? The recipe for AmericanPresident2012.com... that's what! Sounds simple enough, right? It was during a spring get-together in early 2008 that the plan to create a new way to get people involved in politics was first conceived. A wise crack, a spark of brilliance, and a toast spawned the original idea that we just couldn't let go.
While talking about the presidential campaign, the candidates, their avoidance of the important issues, and the public's lack of enthusiasm about the candidates, someone made the comment about how the whole campaign might be a lot more interesting if it was put on like "American Idol." As everyone laughed and nodded in agreement, spouted, "At least the ratings would be better." When she heard that statement, Mona, known for her offbeat and successful marketing ideas, latched on to the whole media campaigning concept and refused to let go. A few days later, she was bouncing the concept for AmericanPresident2012.com off of friends and family. It wasn't long until she had recruited a small team that included her husband Jon, her brother Curtis and a close family friend, Ken. The team met every week, and often several times a week hammering out ideas and details, timelines and legalities. After more than a year, a lot of hard work, and a whole lot of determination, AmericanPresident2012.com is here and ready to positively change the way Americans look at everything political, from the election process to the way we handle the critical issues facing our country and the world.
The scope of this project has been an incredibly huge undertaking. Everyday, each of us on the AmericanPresident2012.com team realize how critically important it is for all of us to get involved in the day-to-day happenings of our government and to play an active role in the administration and control of our government, of the people, by the people, and for the people.
