A new low for Mitt Romney



Seriously, did this actually just happen?

Mitt Romney in Michigan today:

"No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised."

There's no place in our politics for crap like that. Fight back:

Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president of the United States, just said this:

"No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised."

Take a moment or two to think about that, what he's actually saying, and what it says about Mitt Romney.

Then make a donation of $X or more to re-elect Barack Obama today:

It’s nuts.

Last month, President Obama gutted bipartisan welfare reform. Apparently, I'm not the only one who thinks this is crazy.

Watch the video below to see why one of the most respected newspapers in America called his waiver of the work requirement "nuts."

Welfare

The Romney Plan for a Stronger Middle Class will put work back in welfare. That's why your support is critical.

Donate today to help Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and the Republican team win in November.

Let's restore a little common sense and get America back on track.

Breaking: swing state polling

BREAKING: “Recent polls in several swing states show Romney asserting a lead or closing the gap in a way he hadn't before.” The Washington Post, 8/23

Mitt is ahead by two in Ohio, three in Virginia, one in Wisconsin, and one in Florida.

He has outraised President Obama for three straight months, and his non-stop attack ad rampage put him ahead in these swing states. No matter how we slice and dice the numbers, we know that President Obama will lose the election and Democrats will lose the Senate if Mitt wins these four key states.

To re-elect President Obama, to protect the Democratic Senate, and to win these swing states back, please click here to give $X right away.

This week has been a terrifying snapshot of what we'd see if Republicans steal control of the White House and Senate. Only two days after Republican Todd Akin belittled rape survivors, the GOP vowed to bar pregnant rape survivors from the right to choose in their official party platform. Today, we have an unbelievable opportunity to reveal Republicans' revolting blueprint for choice and rape.

But Mitt called this moment “pivotal” for a different reason: He sees these new swing state polls and believes this is his breakaway moment.

The time to fight is now. Let's win these swing states back: [url]

He's an astronaut

--

Here's an all-star Democratic candidate you need to know about: Jose Hernandez, a NASA Astronaut running for Congress in central California.

As a child, Jose worked side by side with his parents picking crops across the San Joaquin Valley. He grew up to become a world-class engineer that helped develop life-saving mammogram technology. Then, a NASA astronaut who flew a 14-day space mission in 2009. Not bad, right?

Jose's Tea Party Republican opponent, Jeff Denham, voted to end Medicare, defund Planned Parenthood, and give more tax breaks to millionaires.

It seems like this race should be a no-brainer for voters -- but here's the catch: Denham and his big corporate backers have millions of dollars to spend on ad buys smearing Jose's record.

Will you contribute $X or more right now to help Jose Hernandez get on the air and set the record straight?

In Congress, Jose will stand up against the Republicans' schemes to sell out seniors' Social Security and Medicare benefits for more millionaire tax breaks. But right now, we have to get Jose's back against the oncoming onslaught of attacks heading his way.

Please don't wait, Jose needs your help right away. Donate $X or more today.

Thanks,

Robby
