“We Will Always Have This President’s Back” #GOTV

by Donna

Here is the email I sent out this morning to friends and family. Feel free to use this – it’s one small thing you can do to GOTV for this President. Even if it turns one person into a voter this year you will have made a great difference for 2014.

Voting Friend,

I’m reaching out to you today because in just a couple of weeks there is an important election taking place.

This November we supporters of President Barack Obama need to send a strong message to the Republican Party and the Mainstream Media that we continue and will always have this President’s back.

So much has been accomplished in the face of adversity.

This President walked into that White House in January 2009 with not just the weight of this country on his shoulders, but because we live in a global economy, he had the weight of the world on his shoulders.

The Republicans conspired that very night to be an obstacle to his every effort. Party before Country became their unspoken model. They proceeded to obstruct and filibuster every piece of legislation that would have a positive impact on you the voter. The goal was to make you cynical about government so that you would tune out. The media has virtually remained silent on this travesty.

Six years later, the President and Democrats’ efforts in Congress have brought us back from the brink of economic disaster, we have Health Care for all Americans, 55 straight months of private sector job growth lowering the unemployment rate to 5.9 percent and our manufacturing industry is booming. Yet the Republicans want you to believe that all is lost. They want you to think that state of our economy is awful.

Well we are better off now than we were when President Obama walked into the Oval Office due in no small part to him always putting your interests ahead of politics.

We have the President and the Democrats in Congress to thank for any progress we have made.

But just think how much further along we would be if the President had a Congress that was willing to work with him.

We could have comprehensive immigration reform, an infrastructure jobs bills putting millions of people to work, an increase in the minimum wage and climate change legislation that would make our environment safe for generations to come.

And this is just the short list.

I strongly urge you to go out and vote for Democrats this November.

I urge you to take your family and friends to the polls as well.

Don’t reward the Republicans’ bad behavior by conceding your vote to them.

Make them pay by showing up and voting them out.

Your Friend,

Donna

      That’s what I’m talking about!
      Lead by example. MY President! OUR President! YOUR President!

      All the polls and the pollsters can kiss my arse!
      We are going to WIN this!
      Even that Allison person(holding my nose as I say this)…..if she does not it’s her own fault.
      And maybe just maybe the Clintons will just stop and go back to Arkansas(please, God)

    Great letter, Donna. I WILL share widely:) everyone can insert a little blurb specific to your state’s specific candidates to make it more personal and locale specific. Imagine how awesome if everyone got this memo! I think the MSM and RW are scared… Let’s give them reason to know that they should be terrified! Bring it home for PBO! He’s always been there for us… Time to have his back and thank him for all his hard work on behalf of the people.

          I know. I’ve been trying to contact one household with little success for a couple of weeks now. One’s in hospital – they are trying to strengthen her for heart surgery, but not looking promising, and her spouse is pre-Alzheimer and repeats more than he absorbs. I blush to say that my other contact (who helped me out when you were leader-board climbing) hasn’t heard from me in aaaages, and most usually only when I’m pushing voting.

    Donna, thank you so much for this letter.
    You read my heart. I, yes I was growing weary of family, friends and haters finding fault with this hard working President.
    Need I say my so-called Liberals friend quoting pols all the time. What’s up with that? I have come to my conclusion they just don’t have facts and they are disgruntle, miserable because they really are too scared of this GOP a.k.a.KKK party they left.
    But thank you, again. My funds are all depleted for fundraising, but I still have to fight back in whatever small way I can. If this letter helps one person to get up and vote, I will be more than glad. We did it then…..we sure need to do it now!
    As much as I detest Face Book, I must post this.
    We’ve got work to do!

      I think IS is trying to get an easy victory to counter what has to be a PR disaster for them in Kobani. And, without the Yezidi getting assistance, it might be just that, an easy victory.

        Every time I see him do this I grind my teeth, especially because it isn’t a matter of space with him! I once, long ago, tweeted him about it, grrr! Of course it made no difference.

        I retweeted his voting tweet above then deleted it in favour of Josh Lederman’s which at least used the president’s twitter name. (I take my little pleasures where I can. 😉 )

    Listening to NPR station, guest says Dems are said to be in position to lose Senate, but this is not definite as Rethugs are being challenged quite strongly by Dems. Right. PBO is so unpopular that candidates cannot identify with him in red states. Right. His approval is at 40. Right. So I come here and read the tweet by Donna re Politico. To hell with NPR.

    It’s amazing that anytime a Dem runs in a red or purplish state they run as a moderate/centrist but when the nuts on the right run in states that are mostly blue they run as the nuts that they claim to be.

    When you get a lot of help from the media portraying you as a viable candidate I guess this is what is possible. I will always lay the failure of this country knowing the facts at the feet of our lazy, sloppy, good for nothing media.

    Joni Ernst shouldn’t be able to win as dog-catcher much less a US Senator but there she is as viable as ever. 😡
