Have you gotten one of these whiney, pitiful letters begging for $3 because Barack can’t keep up with the evil rich Romney?
We’re getting outraised — a first for a sitting president, if this continues. Not just by the super PACs and outside groups that are pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into misleading ads, but by our opponent and the Republican Party, which just outraised us for the second month in a row.
We can win a race in which the other side spends more than we do. But not this much more.
So I need your help. If you believe that regular people should decide elections, then please chip in $3 or more today.
This isn’t about me or the outcome of one election.
This election will be a test of the model that got us here. We’ll learn whether it’s still true that a grassroots campaign can elect a president — whether ordinary Americans are in control of our democracy in the face of massive spending.
I believe we can do this. When all of us chip in what we can, when we can, we are the most powerful force in politics.
But today is the day to prove it. Donate now:
Thank you — for everything you’ve done before and everything you’re doing now. It matters.
Well, guess what, Barack spent $100 million on attack ads in key battleground states, many of them containing lies about Romney’s time at Bain Capital. He wants to create negative, lasting images of Romney early on. It doesn’t even matter to him if any of it is true.
One fine example is that he has had most every liberal media arm tell him that Romney was not working at Bain Capital when minor outsourcing occurred but he keeps repeating the lie in stump speeches and ads anyway.
Obama’s latest ad makes fun of Romney for singing “America the Beautiful” off key. I’m glad to know this because I really want a good lounge singer as President.
