We can change it

To view this email as a web page, go here.

We need to change course.

The Obama economy has left millions of Americans out of work, poverty at levels unseen in decades, and incomes in decline.

The American people demand and deserve better. And these tough times demand the strongest team we have for the tough job of turning things around.

I know from experience that Governor Romney is a tough competitor, and I also believe Paul Ryan has proven he is fully prepared to address our nation's economic challenges.

That's why I'm proud to support the Romney-Ryan ticket, and I hope you'll join me.

Let's stand together with them, and get our great country back on track.

Donate $X today to support Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and the Republican team.

We can and we will change course.

Thank you,

John McCain United States Senator

This is not an ordinary election -- because this is not an ordinary time.

After four years of getting the run-around, America needs a turnaround. And the only man for the job is Mitt Romney.

I'm excited to follow his lead, to join his team, and to pursue an agenda that will get our country back on track.

We know what we believe in. We believe in the hard work and ingenuity of the American people who built this country.

I accept the calling of my generation to give our children the America that was given to us -- with opportunity for the young and security for the old. I know that we are ready to meet serious challenges in a serious way, without excuses and idle words.

So here is our pledge:

We will not duck the tough issues, we will lead.

We will not spend four years blaming others, we will take responsibility.

We will not try to replace our founding principles, we will reapply them.

The work ahead will be hard -- but these times demand the best of us. Together, we can change it.

Join Mitt, the Republican team, and me -- and donate today to help us build a better future for America:

The America we believe in

Romney-Ryan [url]

Four years ago, many Americans were excited about the possibilities of a new president. I wish President Obama had succeeded, because I want America to succeed. But his promises gave way to disappointment and division.

This isn't something we have to accept.

We believe in America, and now is the moment when we can do something to turn things around.

I am running for president to help create a better future. A future where everyone who wants a job can find one. Where no senior fears for the security of their retirement. An America where every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads them to a good job and a bright horizon.

The time has come for us to put the disappointments of the last four years behind us. To put aside the divisiveness and the recriminations. To forget about what might have been, and to look ahead to what can be.

If I am elected president of these United States, I will work with all my energy and soul to restore America, to lift our eyes to a better future. Because our children deserve it, our nation depends upon it, and the peace and freedom of the world require it.

And with your help we will deliver that brighter future.

Stand with me, Paul Ryan and the entire Republican team to restore the America we believe in -- donate $X today: www.mittromney.com/donate/romney-ryan.

Thank you,

Mitt Romney

Blatant lies and misrepresentations

The Democratic Party -----------------------

Rep. Paul Ryan's speech to the Republican Convention tonight wasn't grounded in reality.

He leveled false attack after false attack against the President, while neglecting to give a single idea for how to move our country forward.

He also didn't mention that the Romney-Ryan plan would turn Medicare into a voucher program to pay for tax cuts for millionaires, or that their promise to repeal Obamacare would take away access to health care for 32 million Americans. And don't even get me started on how they want to end a woman's right to make her own health care decisions.

If this extreme Republican vision for our country scares you as much as it does me, donate $X or more now to help Democrats fight back before tomorrow's fundraising deadline:

[url]

There are only 68 days left until Election Day -- we're in the home stretch, and every day between now and then is critically important.

What's more -- we have our most important fundraising deadline yet tomorrow at midnight. And how much we raise before then will determine whether or not Democrats have the resources to beat Romney, Ryan, and Republicans across the country.

It's time for us to put our money where our mouths are and call Romney and Ryan out on their blatant lies and misrepresentations. But we need your help to do that.

If we don't do something...



You know that feeling you get when someone is lying to you?

Paul Ryan got up on that stage and pulled all of the biggest lies of the Romney-Ryan campaign into a single, epically false speech.

He knew he had three national TV stations broadcasting him live, and he turned to that camera and straight-up lied -- about Medicare, the Recovery Act, the deficit, even an auto plant that shut down under George W. Bush -- while looking you right in the eye. And I didn't hear one tangible idea for moving us forward.

We're all that's standing between these people and the presidency.

And right now, we're right up against the biggest fundraising deadline our campaign's seen yet.

Consider the consequences of inaction, then chip in $X or more right now:

Respond quickly and powerfully



Obama for America

I have one message burned into my memory for everyone who cares about the outcome of this year's presidential election:

Respond quickly and powerfully to attacks from the other side.

_We've got to step up and fight back before it's too late. _

What makes 2012 different from when I ran for president in 2004 is that the other side doesn't have to wait for an outside group to come along with false attacks.

Consider this: Swift Boat Veterans for Truth spent about $X million on smear ads against me in 2004.

This year, the Romney campaign and super PACs have promised to spend more than $X billion.

Barack Obama has been a tremendous leader who has moved our country forward in more ways than we even probably now realize. He needs another four years to get the job done.

If you tune in to the convention, you'll see that Mitt Romney and his allies have no qualms about misleading voters if it means defeating President Obama.

But their attacks won't work if enough people step up to protect the President's record.

Don't let them get away with it.

The campaign faces a critical fundraising deadline tomorrow night.

Please make a donation of $X or more today:

No matter what Romney says...



No matter what Mitt Romney says tonight about Barack, about me, about you and this campaign, there's just one thing we've got to remember:

What Mitt Romney and his allies are proposing would knock middle-class Americans back down. Barack and I believe in a country where everyone pays their fair share and gets a fair shot. A country where you're able to own your own home, where you can send your kids to a good school, and maybe even pay for them to go to college one day.

So when you listen to Mitt Romney or any of his friends on the stage down there in Tampa, I hope you think about this. I hope you think about what's on the line in this election.

And, today, I hope you do something about it.

Build this campaign by chipping in $X or more:

This could swing the election



If we win this election, it will be because of what you did in moments like this to help close the spending gap.

Because this is real: Just last week alone, Mitt Romney's campaign and his allies outspent our side by at least three to one in North Carolina, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Colorado, and Pennsylvania, all states we need to win.

That could swing the election -- but it doesn't have to.

Tomorrow is our biggest fundraising deadline so far. Will you make a donation of $X or more today and help this campaign hang in there for the final two months?

[url]

Tonight Mitt Romney will deliver a speech that millions of Americans will hear.

He's going to say a lot of things about Barack Obama, and belittle what we stand for.

When he does, remember the important role you play in the political process. Remember the kind of man our president is, and the tough choices he's had to make from that Oval Office.

Voters in some very important states are hearing distortions and lies from people who've invested a lot to see Barack Obama removed from the White House.

Fight back. Donate $X or more and make sure your voice is heard just as loud:

We wouldn't be here without you. Thank you.

P.S. -- Deciding that the stakes are high enough to do our part isn't a November 6th decision. It's one I'm asking you to make right now, before tomorrow's big fundraising deadline:

He's going to say a lot of things about Barack Obama, and belittle what we stand for.

While he does, I want you to remember the kind of man our president is and the tough choices he's had to make from that Oval Office.

And keep a few things in mind about Mitt Romney, too. He wants to give huge tax breaks to billionaires who don't need them, to be paid for by raising taxes on middle-class families. He and Paul Ryan want to turn Medicare into a voucher program that would raise costs for retirees, slash education funding for Pell Grants and Head Start, repeal Obamacare, and let Wall Street write its own rules again.

Right now, voters are hearing a very different story because the other side has outraised us three months in a row, and they're using that cash to bury us in an onslaught of negative TV ads.

Imagination

Instead of reminding you we're 24 hours from the election's biggest FEC deadline, I ask you to use your imagination.

Deadline: 24 hours. Contribute. Instead of reminding you we're 24 hours from the election's biggest FEC deadline, I ask you to use your imagination.

It's August 2013 and you flip on the news. President Romney is holding a press conference from the Rose Garden highlighting his accomplishments, flanked by GOP leaders who now control the House and Senate. Eight months after their government takeover, Medicare as we know it is gone, Planned Parenthood funding is zero, and they've eliminated access to contraception for millions of women.

Really, close your eyes and picture it. Imagine how angry you are.

Future you is even more livid because when you saw Paul Ryan's convention speech last night, you knew this could happen and that you could have done a little more to help stop it.

Don't be furious with yourself. Click this link right now, contribute $X and stop Romney and Ryan from taking the White House and Senate. Donate $X before you run out of time in 24 hours — we still have $X left to raise.

This is a 50-50 election. It is possible — given the Republicans' colossal financial advantage — that we lose both the White House and the Senate. and this is crucial — it is just as likely that we win both. It's really up to you.

So use your imagination once more: It's a year from today. Obama is still President and Democrats still control the Senate. Medicare, Planned Parenthood and access to contraception are safe from the radical Republicans.

And you will have a good night's sleep because you donated right here: [url]

jaw-dropping

I don't know how Paul Ryan can look in the mirror. Last night, he slammed President Obama with jaw-dropping lies packaged into hollow platitudes.

And after outraising President Obama month after month, they have enough money to saturate the airwaves with Ryan's lies for the next 68 days.

If we can't raise $X before the FEC deadline in 36 hours, we will not be able to respond. Not responding means President Obama will lose this election and Democrats will lose the Senate. Your support is the only way we're going to get there.

We must call out Paul Ryan's lies and stop him from taking the White House and Senate. There are 36 hours until the FEC deadline—can you give $X?

clever...

--

Paul Ryan is a rigid far-right ideologue and a clever politician.

That's a dangerous combination -- especially in an election where ultraconservative billionaires like the Koch Brothers are spending millions to ensure that their extreme right-wing agenda becomes a reality.

We have to do everything we can to expose Romney and Ryan's plans to slash the social safety net for seniors, children, and pretty much everyone else to pay for more tax breaks for millionaires.

Donate $X or more to support President Obama up with a strong Democratic majority

Unlike some of these Tea Party Republicans, Ryan understands that much of what he wants to do is very unpopular with the American people. He'll do everything he can to avoid the specifics of his plans to end Medicare, privatize Social Security, and give Mitt Romney a 1% tax rate.

That's why we need you to help us set the record straight.

it was brazen

--

Last night, Paul Ryan brazenly lied to the country. Repeatedly.

He lied about Medicare. He lied about Obamacare. He even attacked President Obama for a GM plant that closed while George W. Bush was still President.

We only have 24 hours left before the biggest fundraising deadline of this election.

Contribute $X or whatever you can so we can fight the lies and support President Obama's agenda

In the next 10 weeks, Republicans and their corporate Super PAC allies are going to repeat all those lies you heard last night ad nauseam. Romney's campaign has already admitted that they won't let their campaign “be dictated by fact-checkers.”

They're willing to say anything to tear down President Obama.

Chip in $X or more before the deadline so we can fight back.

why?

--

I want you to remember one thing about that Republican Convention:

All those radical ideas you heard on TV would become a reality if Romney was elected with a Republican Congress to back him up.

My friends at the DCCC are working overtime to expose the Republicans' plans to sell out the middle class for multi-millionaire tax breaks, but they need your help right now. Tomorrow is the most important fundraising deadline of this campaign:

Donate $X or more to help the DCCC elect a Democratic House for President Obama -- your donation will be triple-matched

The Romney-Ryan-Republican plan would essentially end Medicare, defund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare. It would slash student aid and gut Social Security.

Why?

Just so they could pay for more tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires.

If we wake up the day after the election and Romney and the Republicans have won, it will be too late. Your moment to make a difference is now. Please donate before tomorrow's fundraising deadline:

cold-blooded

--

Lie after lie after lie.

Paul Ryan's speech last night made my blood boil. But at Romney headquarters, you can bet they cheered as the money poured in from their right-wing base.

It doesn't matter to them that nearly every point Ryan made could be disproved with a simple Google search. What mattered was that Ryan lit a fire under the fringe of the Republican Party just before the most important fundraising deadline of the election.

We have 24 hours left to respond.

Donate $X or more to fight back against Republican attacks and support President Obama's agenda before the fundraising deadline [url]

Ryan had no intention of being honest. He wanted to stoke the rage of every Tea Party activist looking for an Obama-bashing ideologue.

It was a cold-blooded play for cash.

We're already being outspent in key battleground states. We can't let any more of these Ryan lies go unanswered.

We're 67 days away from a President Romney backed by an extreme Republican Majority in Congress if we don't do something about it. Take a moment, think about what that would mean for our country. Then help us stop it from happening.
