Are You Proud Of Me?

Joe --

This week alone, the other side is expected to spend $57 million on TV advertising against us.

It gets worse: We just learned that Mitt Romney and the Republicans started this month with a $34 million cash advantage.

This election is already extremely close. And because we've never seen this level of overall spending in a presidential race -- especially right at the very end like this -- we don't know exactly what it could do. It can't be good.

If we don't close the gap starting today, none of us should feel confident about how November 6th will play out.

According to our records associated with this exact email address:

    -- Total you've donated for the 2012 campaign cycle: $0
    -- Your most recent donation was: $0
    -- Suggested donation today: $5

This week should serve as a wake-up call for every Obama supporter.

We don't have to spend more than them, and we won't. But we can't get crushed on the airwaves without fighting back and expect this to be easy or go our way in less than three weeks.

If Barack Obama loses to the other side's cynical strategy, so does our way of doing grassroots politics.

The President doesn't have anyone else waiting in the wings -- you are it.

Please don't wait any longer. Donate $5 or more today:


Rufus Gifford
National Finance Director
Obama for America

Sorry, you've reached THE OTHER SIDE!

"grassroots politics" ha ha ha Mitt Romney is sending a similar fund raising letter. Ron Paul did for his election run, too. (The Paul campaign also sent "Did you see that other email?" emails. It really got annoying after awhile and made me wonder if all they really wanted was my money).

No, Mr. President. We are not proud of you. We are ashamed of you as our commander in Chief, as our President, as a politician, and as an American.

You are trash.
Resign and leave the country please.

Dear Rufus. My home, by the way built and paid for by me, has a rufus that leaks when it rains. Please send me 3,300$ so I can fix it.
