Fun story:

President Obama gave a speech last week in Cleveland, where he drew contrasts between his plan to help the middle class and Mitt Romney's plan to help himself and people like him.

Romney's contribution to the debate? His staffers drove his campaign bus around the parking lot honking the horn repeatedly.

I'm not kidding. Romney campaign staff, in a giant bus wrapped with the Romney campaign logo, circled the event blowing the horn.

It sums up their entire campaign strategy nicely.

That's not how this organization is run. We are in the field building this grassroots movement so that we can have more conversations with voters -- because when people know the truth, we win.

Can you chip in $X or more today to make that happen?
