Green for All’s free-for-all, so to speak, all in the name of national service.

Meanwhile, David Paine, president of My Good Deed Inc., a 9/11 families group involved in the upcoming National Day of Service, told me in an interview Monday night that he wishes to make it clear that his group has nothing to do with the Green the Block campaign.
Paine didn’t express an opinion on Green the Block but said his group wants the National Day of Service to remain outside the realm of government, adding “We would oppose anything that would make it either political or commercial.”
“No one should utilize 9/11 to try and score political points,” he said.
Paine said his group is encouraging people voluntarily to serve their communities on Sept. 11 as a way to honor those killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. “We’re not promoting any particular activity,” he said. “This is a free country.”
He also stressed that his group, which pushed for a National Day of Service for years, resisted earlier calls to make Sept. 11 a federal holiday.
“We believe volunteerism should be something that people do out of the goodness of their hearts,” he said. “Self-directed service: Americans know what needs to be done.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
