Basketball



When I was 10 years old, my father gave me my first basketball. It wasn't too long before I became a basketball fanatic.

It's a game I still love -- and one I've shared with my two girls.

Later this month, some of the greatest players to ever step foot on a basketball court are getting together in New York to support my campaign. People like Patrick Ewing, Sheryl Swoopes, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, Rajon Rondo, and so many more -- they're all doing this because they believe in what we're building together.

So I'm asking a few grassroots supporters and a guest of their choice to join me -- and that impressive roster -- for a once-in-a-lifetime night. We'll catch up over dinner, and then some of the players will get together for a casual shootaround. Who knows? Maybe I'll even get out on the court to shoot some hoops with you guys. If you join us, don't be surprised if I challenge you or your guest to play.

Donate $X or whatever you can today, and you'll be automatically entered for the chance to be there:

You might not have heard about this yet, but I know Michelle has -- because I can't stop talking about it.

Later this month, I'll be getting together for dinner with a few of the greatest basketball players on the planet.

But I'm not just looking forward to meeting my sports heroes -- I want you to be there, too, with whoever you'd like to bring.

Make a donation of $X or whatever you can, and you'll be automatically entered to join in.

Now, I don't know if I'll want to sprint up and down the court that night, but I'm always up for a little shootaround. If you join us at the event, don't be surprised if I challenge you or your guest to play.

The campaign will cover airfare and accommodations, so start thinking about which sports fan you're going to bring along. Even if basketball isn't your thing, I look forward to meeting you -- and I'm sure you know someone who would love to hit the court and hang out with some of the greats.

I hope you'll join us:

Obama for America

I love basketball.

Always have, always will. And even though my girls would probably tell you I'm too old to have any game, I still try to get out on the court whenever I can.

So I'm really excited about an event coming up in a couple weeks.

Some of the greatest players out there -- legends and newcomers -- are joining me for what we're calling the Obama Classic. You could be there, too, and I encourage you to bring a basketball fan in your life. Don't be surprised if I challenge you or your guest to play.

Pitch in $X or whatever you can, and you will automatically be entered for the chance to join me, Patrick Ewing, Sheryl Swoopes, Chris Bosh, Alonzo Mourning, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, and many more for dinner -- followed by a casual shootaround.

Believe me, that list of names is just as unbelievable to me as it to you, but there's no reason to be nervous: These players love the game, and they're going to love meeting you, too.

And if you're feeling up to it, I told the campaign I'd like to shoot a few hoops myself, but I don't want anyone to feel bad -- so I'll try to not make too many threes in a row.

If basketball isn't your thing, you should still come. If you win, you get to bring whoever you want, and I bet you can think of at least one person who would love to hang out with a few all-stars. We'll also have plenty of time to catch up off the court, with you and your guest sitting down with me and the rest of the players for dinner.

I know I can't wait. I hope you'll pitch in what you can today and automatically get your name in the hat -- airfare and accommodations included:

Good luck and go Bulls .

I'm honored to be joining President Obama and some of the best basketball players ever for a special event in a couple of weeks. Some of us might even get out on the court with the President for a bit.

It's called the Obama Classic, and you don't want to miss it.

I'm one of many players honored to be sharing the basketball court with the President of the United States on August 22nd.

Just check out who's coming -- Patrick Ewing, Carmelo Anthony, Sheryl Swoopes, Paul Pierce, Vince Carter, Rajon Rondo, and Alonzo Mourning. Last but not least, President Obama.

Are you kidding me?

You could be there. We'll have some dinner and shoot some hoops if basketball isn't your thing, you can invite your kid or a friend to take your spot on the court while you watch courtside .

It'll be a casual shootaround, but the possibilities are endless -- Patrick Ewing catching alley-oops from the President, Rajon Rondo dishing behind-the-back passes to Alonzo Mourning, you passing to Carmelo Anthony for a three-pointer.

This is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity -- I'm getting asked to play basketball with some of my childhood heroes, and help President Obama win the most important election in a generation at the same time!

I wouldn't miss it for the world -- you shouldn't either.

This isn't going to stop

Obama for America

The headlines are talking about how you and I got beat again by the other side in fundraising.

Those headlines aren't going away. I will be outspent in this election. And we will not win the ad wars on TV and radio -- right now, the other side is outspending us on TV by at least 2-to-1 in most battleground states.

And that's OK. But only if we're able to keep the spending gap close enough so that our investments in a truly grassroots campaign pay off.

I believe in that model, and I'm betting that you do, too.

It's moments like these that I need you to act on that belief. Can you make a donation of $X or more today?

Fighting for Planned Parenthood - and for us



As a working mom in Hollywood today, I'm lucky to have the resources I need to take care of myself and my son. But that wasn't always the case.

When I graduated from college over 15 years ago, I was unemployed and uninsured. I turned to the only place that would provide me with health care at a rate I could afford: Planned Parenthood.

What Mitt Romney forgets when he says he wants to "get rid of that" organization is that, for many women, the fight over Planned Parenthood isn't controversial -- it's about our health.

I recorded a quick video sharing my own Planned Parenthood story -- and why I'm proud that my president supports this great organization. Check it out, then make a few calls to let other women know why it matters to you.

One in five women will rely on Planned Parenthood for medical services like cancer screenings and pap smears at some point in their lives. Seventy-five percent of Planned Parenthood patients have incomes below 150 percent of the poverty line -- for many working women, the organization is quite literally a life-saver. It is the leading women's reproductive health care provider and advocate. It's there for us when no one else is.

The fight over Planned Parenthood is part of a larger debate about issues that, for most women, are intensely personal decisions: birth control and reproductive health. But now more than ever, it's important to talk to women about our personal experiences and ask them to step up and get involved -- the Republicans who want to take us back to the '50s need to know the consequences of their actions.

For me, birth control wasn't originally a tool for preventing pregnancy. It was prescribed to me when hormonally-induced migraines kept me locked up in dark rooms for days. I took it again when I had painful cramps. And when I wanted to have children, I got on the pill again, because it helped regulate my cycle for IVF. Thanks to family planning, today I'm the proud mother of a one-year-old son.

That's why I'm working hard to re-elect President Obama. He respects and values women. He knows that the government has no business restricting access to affordable birth control, cancer screenings, and the preventive care that Planned Parenthood provides. President Obama has not compromised on women's rights -- he's fighting for us.

So we've got to fight for him. Help spread the word by making a few calls and sharing your story with others about why these issues matter to you:

this could cost us the election...

--

This could cost us the election.

Republican governors across the country have enacted discriminatory voter suppression measures in swing states targeting minorities, the urban poor, and the elderly.

Aside from the fact that it's blatantly partisan -- since the voters affected traditionally vote for Democrats -- it's also an attack on millions of Americans' right to vote.

It's a long way from Hope, Arkansas to Fallon, Nevada, but when I look at John Oceguera, I see a guy who grew up the same way I did.

Raised by a single mom, John worked hard to help support his family and then put himself through college - first at an ice plant, then as a firefighter. They struggled, sure, but they got through as a family. Together.

He's never forgotten his roots. That's the important thing. After all he's accomplished, he's still that guy from small-town Nevada, fighting for the middle-class.

Now John's running for Congress. And I know he'll bring some good Nevada common sense to Washington. Because you and I know they need it.

I'm proud to say that I support John Oceguera, because we need more folks like him in Congress. Please join me -- support John with a contribution of $X or more right now.

John reminds me of the way things used to be. When Congress had common sense, things got done, and people didn't just tow the party line.

John will work to balance the budget the right way, like we did when I was President, with millionaires and billionaires paying their fair share.

And we've both had enough of these Tea Party Republicans saying it's their way or the highway, trying to privatize Social Security, end Medicare, and squeeze the middle class until it pops.

That's why I'm endorsing John Oceguera for Congress -- because he has the right priorities for Nevada's middle class. Please join me in supporting him.

The election's in 89 days. Let's go win it. Support John today.

Thanks,

Bill
