Obama’s Email to Donors

O has sent an email to supporters, asking for dontations to help battle the McCain smear job.

A few hours ago John McCain, the same man who just months ago promised to run a "respectful campaign," said he is "proud" of his latest attack ad.

That’s the one attacking your enthusiasm, comparing me to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, and making false claims about my energy plan.

Now, we’re facing some serious challenges in this country — our economy is struggling, energy costs are skyrocketing, and families don’t have health care.

Given the seriousness of these issues, you’d think we’d be having a serious debate. But instead, John McCain is running an expensive, negative campaign against us. Each day brings a desperate new set of attacks.

And they’re not just attacking me. They’re attacking you.

They’re mocking the desire of millions of Americans to step up and take ownership of the political process.

They’re trying to convince you that your enthusiasm won’t amount to anything — that the people you persuade, the phone calls you make, the donations you give, the doors you knock on are all an illusion. They believe that in this election the same old smears and negative attacks will prevail again.

They’re wrong.

And right now, we have a few hours left to prove them wrong in a very concrete way.

Can you make a donation of $25 or more right now before the July fundraising deadline at midnight tonight?

Show the strength of our movement for change.

Thank you,

Barack

  1. You know what’s sick? People are stupid enough to pay attention to campaign ads. Just last week a coworker and myself overheard other people in the office talking: “I’m not sure who I should vote for. I think I’m going to vote for Obama but I heard he’s a muslim, and I just don’t know about that middle name.” I’ve given people too much credit for too long.
    Hopefully not enough people are so ignorant. Another thing that is irritating is that the morons who listen to Limbaugh and Hannity (not for a laugh) repeat this nonsense mindlessly.
