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.

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.
