Here's a sign that a candidate isn't looking out for your interests:

He point-blank says it.

To some of his wealthiest donors, Mitt Romney said that about 47 percent of the country sees themselves as victims. He went on to say: "My job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

How could he be so profoundly wrong about America? This is not a country of victims. It's one where, when people get knocked down, they get back up. There's absolutely no quit in America.

We haven't even voted yet, folks, and these guys have written off half of the country. Think about how that'd play out over the next four years -- scary stuff.

We know what and who we're fighting for. 44 days to go.

I know a guy who wholeheartedly disagrees with Romney's world view.

He's a guy who passed health care reform that touches the lives of every single American out there, a guy who brought our troops home from Iraq.

Right now, that guy is in the toughest election of his life.

Make your donation today to re-elect Barack Obama:

P.S. -- It's going to be neck and neck right up until Election Day, and trust me, every dollar goes farther today than it will tomorrow. Please donate right now:
