    Done. Wish I could donate more but I gotta spread the money love in response to President Obama’s email and to the DCCC (yeah I’m still pissed at some Dems but the alternative is horrendous).

    Good luck, Donna!

      Someone sent out a link yesterday quoting the Chicago staff and reasons why they’re fighting so hard for President Obama’s re-election. One of the quotes was “Because the alternative is not an alternative”.

      • September 30, 2011 at 6:19 pm

        “…Because the alternative is not an alternative.”

        So true…

        Hi dd4o,

        Donated, again, I hope “WE” win! 😆

        YES.WE.CAN…DO.(Much)More, Together!
        YES.WE.CAN, Again…Obama/Biden 2012!
        PRESS ON! 😉

    I want to share something with you all….

    I have received an extraordinary amount of donations primarily from this site. In fact over 300 of the donations I have received this month have come from TOD followers. I send out “thank yous” when you make your initial donation and I have gotten over a hundred responses in the last couple of weeks.

    I want those of you who participate and share information on this site to know that there are hundreds of people who read what we share here everyday. They are the silent lurkers who know us all by our posts and check into this site everyday but never say a word. They have shared with me in those messages about how we lift them up and motivate them to keep “Pressing On”. Some of their notes of inspiration brought me to tears. You never know the impact that your words and links and commentary can have on people until you encounter them in a simple message of support.

    I just want you all to know that you along with Chips are making a tremendous difference to so many O’supporters in the face of so much negativism. So keep informing, keep sharing and most of all keep lifting us all up to continue the fight because our President is worth whatever labor we endure to guarantee his success.

    No matter the outcome tonight I feel like a winner already just because of the overwhelming show of support I have experienced here in raising money for our President.

    Thank you all so much! You too lurkers

    • September 30, 2011 at 5:33 pm

      That’s spectacularly lovely Donna, you have no idea how much I want you to top those leaderboards, no one deserves it more. You’re an inspiration. 😉

      Donna, you are a winner! Your can do spirit is what this President needs. Our host, Chips, who works so hard to keep us informed and focused, is also a winner. She is one of my heroes. I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I feel for finding this site that strongly supports a President that I greatly admire and respect. I hopeDonna dem won the contest!

      I just made another 2 donations of 5.00 each per your request for small but more donations. I can’t do anymore right now, but I hope you will win. Please tell the President when you meet him that we have his back, Thanks.

    • September 30, 2011 at 9:57 pm

      Donna–You’re the best and have been such an inspiration to us. I went to a Democratic dinner tonight and told everyone at my table how terrific you were to get so much support for your challenge and how exciting it’s been to be part of it. The clock is ticking down now, almost time for the virtual champagne.

      You have to know that with ALL OUR HEARTS, we are pulling for you! What a beautiful, heartfelt message this is…it goes directly to the spirit that Chips has enabled here at TOD…the family that we share, for the sole purpose of re electing this most amazing man to lead our great country again. Thank you so much for sharing that with us…and now, I’ll go donate some more:)
      To celebrate Donna…and remind everyone of what and who we’re fighting for….(thank you, 3Chics!)

      I just sent you another donation…my fingers and toes are crossed for you!

  7. September 30, 2011 at 6:00 pm

    Donna, you are a winner regardless of the outcome, but you have got this hands down sis. I donated again today. Not only is it important to help you, it is important to help the President. I read something on “First Read” (like I really believe Chuckie) but he wrote that Romney and Obama’s donations for third quarter will be lower than second quarter. Why? I have no idea but I so want us to make a big showing this quarter and you getting to speak with him is the frosting on the cake!

    • September 30, 2011 at 7:31 pm

      For Romney, I just think the field is getting bigger. For PBO, he had to cancel some big time fundraisers due to the fake debt ceiling crisis. I’m sure that was all part of the GOP plan.

    • 24 CoyoteMarti
      September 30, 2011 at 7:42 pm

      If ours are down, that will be a bummer, but I do recall reading that the third quarter is typically the most challenging due to the distractions of Summer. Plus it’s been such an economically challenging quarter that I bet many many of us are either still waiting or, like me, having to contribute less than usual. And none of the big Wall Street doners who supported Obama in 2008 are giving, but are meeting with Romney instead.He helped save their butts but they will not be there for him this round. I think the campaign is surprised; many of us out here are not.

  8. September 30, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    Okey dokey Donna, I just made two different donations to your page, I’m really hoping that you win, and most of all i want to commend you on your committed hard work. I also donated on yesterday, but to VP Joe Biden’s request.

  10. September 30, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    Sometimes I just don’t know who to donate to, between PBO, FLOTUS, Dccc, DNC, they all are requesting donations.

    There’s great stuff at the Obama store which counts as a contribution also. I got the new sweatshirt so I can campaign when I walk in the neighborhood—–and elsewhere. Also like the gray v neck t shirt and the car magnet and the buttons etc. etc. etc.

    Boehner Pushes For Energy Department Loan For Home District Company Amidst Solyndra Scandal

    Not House Speaker John Boehner (R), who on Friday called for the Obama administration to send some of that federal cash back to a company in HIS Ohio district.

    Boehner’s office wants the Energy Department to approve USEC, Inc.’s application for a loan to construct a uranium enrichment plant for the American Centrifuge Project. They say that USEC’s proposal is solid and would “bring thousands of good-paying, long-term jobs,” which they said stood “in stark contrast to the ‘stimulus’-centric Solyndra saga.”

    “Hundreds of Southern Ohio workers stand to lose their jobs if the Obama Administration reneges on the president’s promise to support an energy project in the small town of Piketon, OH,” Boehner aide Michael Ricci wrote in a blog post.

    “Since the president made his promise, USEC has endured review after review and taken the necessary steps to conserve cash and protect jobs, but the Department of Energy has yet to act,” Ricci said. “This is despite the fact that the company has gone the extra mile to secure additional private investment to reduce taxpayer exposure. Now the Piketon project is at risk of being shut down, putting hundreds of jobs in limbo.”

    Thought this was an interesting tidbit. The head of the Chgo tea party, who is the main organizer for the national convention in Schaumburg, Il. this weekend (Chgo burb), who has received accolades from all over the place for being this really great guy, a family man, a family values man, was arrested last summer for soliciting a prostitute. And he forgot about his own failings as he took to twitter after his own arrest to condemn Jesse Jackson Jr. for his long ago indiscretions. The hypocrisy in the tea party seems to be the one connecting thread—–I’m thinking of tea party darling Joe Walsh too whose family values included ignoring his responsibility to his children in his failure to pay child support.

      Thank you for that, meta. I’ve been wondering if the bin Laden cohort – think he may have been a doctor? who was shown years ago in a video where he was inside a jail with others, and he kept hollering something like “We are Muslims” – is still around. Sorry I don’t have a better description, but would anybody know?

  15. September 30, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Any news on the number of donors and the raised this quarter ? Is there a website for it like last quarter did ?

    • September 30, 2011 at 9:44 pm

      The official date for reporting the previous quarter’s results is October 15th, so it’ll be a couple of weeks before we know the outcome.
      I think we’re shooting for $50 million and a million donors.

      • September 30, 2011 at 10:01 pm

        Thanks meta. If you remember, last quarter, they had a website towards the end where we could track the no. of donors and the amount (both of which they kept pushing higher and higher). Was wondering if they had such a tracking site this quarter ?

  16. September 30, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    Hi Donna-

    I just made my contribution (tardy for the party)! It was my intention to support you sooner but things have been hectic. I really hope you win this challenge. I would have given more but I’m trying to beef up my own goal. I’m definitely small time compared to you :). Anyway keep up the good work!

    Mitt Romney is desperately trying to be like President Obama – Oh he wishes. Now he’s trying to see if he can come close to PBO with the number of Twitter followers. He tweeted this on Sept 23rd:

    // “Thanks everyone for helping me get to 100k followers. RT and let’s double it in the next 60 days #Mitt2012
    23 Sep via web” //

    As Donna surges to victory in the Obama Donation I want to make one final reminder

    Please email me a list of the calls, tweets, email forms, conversations, or volunteer hours you have spent this week. I will post pictures of the treats, so far refrigerator magnets and a clear sticky sign you can put in your back window that says Press On.


    I am looking for places I could order the materials to make a pin we could wear on sweatshirts or coats, if anyone knows of a source – let me know.

    I am excited to read the emails tomorrow and send out the Press On items.

        I don’t want to wake up in November 2012 wishing I had done more. Failure is not an option! Once I max out for PBO I’ll start on Elizabeth Warren, DCCC, DSCC, DNC, nod monthly OFA vote for change trips to Nevada since the Bay Area us so blue. We all must keep doing all we can together. Thanks to you for your dedication, Chipsticks for her overall awesomeness in creating, sustaining, mothering, and inspiring this great community, and all who come here. What I love about our president is that he calls on us to work together in perfecting the American dream the only way it can be realized, through loving community. Never about fear, hate, lies, or venom but above love, empathy, reciprocity. Even more than 2008 it is a fight to define our future, almost apocalyptic in its implications.
