Democratic talking points haven’t changed in a hundred years, except that these days, they want more money.
Want to know why Romney put his money on the right-wing wonder boy, Paul Ryan, as his VP candidate?
You’re going to see this week. When Ryan gives his big Convention speech and starts railing against Obamacare, those Tea Party fanatics are going to be leaping off their backsides to donate whatever they’ve got to defeat the President.
There’s no way around it — combine all this Tea Party money with all that Koch Brothers’ Super PAC cash, and we’re in danger of letting this thing get out of hand.
We’ve gotta close the gap and fight back before it’s too late.
Now, we’re coming down to the home stretch – the election is only a couple months out. I don’t want that feeling in my gut after it’s over where I wish we’d done more.
So I need y’all with me right now. Step up, hit ‘em where it counts, and send these guys packing once and for all:
The pundits and talking heads are talking about how badly we’re being outraised by the other side. You’ve heard it from us, too.
Three months in a row, Mitt Romney and the Republican Party have trounced our fundraising totals. And, along with allied outside groups, they’re using that cash to try to obliterate our side on the airwaves, outspending us in some battleground states by margins of up to three to one.
The pundits are saying this is how we could lose the election. You know what I say?
When you get knocked down, get up. There’s no quit in America. There’s nothing we can’t do.
This week isn’t just the Republican National Convention — it’s also the biggest fundraising deadline this campaign has seen, and one of the last. President Obama and I are counting on you.
Please make a donation of $5 or more today:
We’ve been counted out more than a few times before. It’s all on us to prove them wrong again.
P.S. — I’ve seen a lot of good campaigns — with smart, strong candidates and bold visions for the change we need — go down, simply because they couldn’t keep up. Don’t let this campaign be one of them. Donate today.
A lot of their policies haven’t changed all that much either, and they like to call themselves the Progressives.
