An email from Obama's Chicago HQ: "The Republican base is energized." The reason: Romney attracted 15,000 at a rally over the weekend.
The email:
Paul --
I just got this disturbing report: Yesterday's Romney-Ryan rally in North Carolina pulled in an overflow crowd of 15,000 people.
There's no spinning that number. It's a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized.
And that's not all. Since the VP announcement, Romney's campaign has brought in over 70,000 donations from his Tea Party base.
We've got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters -- starting right now.
Donate $3 or right now to help us rally our base around President Obama's agenda >>
Listen to what one Republican supporter said about Paul Ryan: "I love him...He's going to excite the Tea Party and get them on board..."
We can't let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can:

"Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?" President Obama asked at a fundraiser in Chicago on Sunday.

H*ll no....I do not want the government to take my money and share it with lazy azzes who will not work. If I want toshare...it will be with direct donation or through a religious organization !

Obama: "A New Vision Of An America In Which Prosperity Is Shared"

"Too many folks still don't have a sense that tomorrow will be better than today. And so, the question in this election is which way do we go?" President Obama asked at a fundraiser in Chicago on Sunday. "Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?"

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2012/0 ...

Sharing the prosperity means stealing from those who work to hand it to Obama voters who don’t.

Trolling for votes at the bottom of the America’s barrel.

Disgusting, to say the least.

I am kind of confused about what your focus point of the videos is supposed to be. What are you trying to prove exactly? This is what i get from the 4 videos.

Video 1=someones opinion of another person. That is the same as videos of people supporting jerry sandusky before all the allegations of pedophilia.

Video 2= Obama crushing Paul Ryan and the Republican party. There was no Praise from Obama, he actually pointed out that he had the same exact plan that the Republicans voted down.

Video 3= too long and no time to watch it.

Video 4= Conspiracy theory mumbo jumbo. i heard nothing about them being against anything.

I know...you want a Romney/Ryan administration who would give more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires and tax increases to the poor and middle class. Also, you want a vice president who has used the philosophy of a Russian atheist novelist as his primary guidance in politics. You want an administration who would privatize social security and get rid of medicare as we know it. Sounds like Cocke County would go back to conditions that existed in the early 1900's. I suppose that the poor people in this county who vote republican need to experience a Romney/Ryan administration before they learn that these men do not have their best interest at heart. I am not saying that the Obama administration is perfect but couldn't the republicans have put forth a better ticket?

Exactly what he said. My father always said, "how a poor man can be Republican is just ridiculous. I'm just not rich enough to be a Republican."

If you truly believe that any of these things are "free" why don't you enjoy the good life, and move into a luxurious flat at the Newport housing authority?

As a life-long Republican- I hate to say-can't vote for these two rich, elitist,lying idiots. Are they going to make Sarah Palin Secretary of State and appoint Newt to the Supreme Court? Don't any of you realize they care nothing about the poor? If I vote will be a write in for Al Gore or Hillary Clinton. Can't the Republican Party do better, or all they too busy counting money? Why do you want to vote for those trying to keep you down and out?

Have you ever wondered why you aren't rich enough to be a Republican? Could be because you are not a Republican. Try thinking, acting and imitating Republicans and watch your life change for the good.
