This week, President Obama will take the stage at the Democratic Convention to deliver one of the most historic speeches in political history.

Let him know you're with him and wish him good luck right here: [url]

After endorsing marriage equality, extending health coverage to 30 million Americans, and saving the auto industry, let him know you're fired up and ready to go.

If you're proud of President Obama, sign your name even leave him a note! and we'll pass your message along. Let's send him 50,000 good luck wishes.

I know he'll appreciate it.

Are you better off?

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

Romney-Ryan [url]

President Obama and his liberal allies just don't get it.

The middle class has been crushed under his administration. Gas prices have doubled, incomes have dropped, poverty is headed toward fifty-year highs, and unemployment has been above 8 percent for 42 straight months.

And yet, he still wants you to believe you are better off now than you were four years ago.

Americans deserve a president who gets it: a leader who understands we're not better off, and who has a plan to fix it.

The present administration has made its choices. And Mitt Romney and I have made ours: before the math and the momentum overwhelm us all, we are going to solve this nation's economic problems and get America back on track.

Our Plan for a Stronger Middle Class means more jobs, more take-home pay, and better opportunities for all Americans. And we will restore, protect, and strengthen Medicare -- for my Mom's generation, for my generation, and for our children's generation.

With your help, the Republican team will begin to undo the damage of the last four years. If we're smart and we're serious, together we can fix this.

Donate $X today to help us get America back to work.

Thank you,

Paul Ryan
