Barack Obama draws 100,000 in Denver; John McCain trying to raise money

October 26, 2008

When things are going well, they’re going really well.  Barack Obama drew approximately 100,000 people to a rally in Denver today.  Guess folks want to see the next President of the United States.

I happened to receive a John McCain solicitation trying to raise money.  Immediately made me donate another $100 to Barack Obama.  Don’t worry–I’ll send in the GOP fund-raising solicitation (they pay the postage) and let them know I donated money to Barack Obama in John McCain’s name.

Here’s some key points from John McCain’s letter (you may want to grab a Kleenex before reading further–it may make you tear up a bit–not):

Dear Friend,

We’ve reached a critical juncture in the campaign.  The Obama Democrats and their left-wing, special interest allies have come forward in a united front combining their enoromous fundraising arsenal.  Meanwhile, the national Democrats led by Chairman Howard Dean are stepping up their cynical campaign of distortions and outright lies, and with the help of their cronies, are raising staggering amounts of money.

My friend, the last thing we Republicans can afford is to have our hands tied behind our backs due to the fact that their candidate broke his promise to the American people and refused to accept the presidential campaign spending limit–which means they will have no limit as to what they can raise and spend.

We simply can’t be in a situation where the Democrats hold a huge financial advantage over us in the last crucial month leading up to the elections.  That’s why I am writing to you today, as a most valued and trusted member of our Party.

You support is essential right now.  So, please send in a generous Emergency Membership Contribution of $35, $50, $100, $500 or even more if you can afford it.

…I would not ask for your help if the circumstances were not so dire.  However, it is clear that the weeks and days ahead will be the most important yet in our battle to defeat the Democrats and their deeply flawed policies that embrace higher taxes, more government spending, socialized medicine and surrender in Iraq.

…Thank you for your steadfast support of our Party and our country.

Sincerely, John McCain

John McCain lies even in his fundraising messages. What a pathetic guy he’s become as a result of this election.  But, that issue aside–since McCain accepted public funds, how can he still be raising money?  Or, do those rules not apply because “McCain says so?”

Enough!! Obama-Biden in 2008! Democrat Dave
