Grumpy Old Men; The Real RNC

Grumpy Old Men; The Real RNC

By SOP newswire2

A year ago if you`d told me Rush, Newt and Cheney would be the new faces of the Republican National Committee, I`d have asked what you were smoking.

But, then again if you`d told me the Republican Party would raise over $14 million in one night in a hotel ballroom in Washington, D.C. I would have asked if you had some more to share.

Seriously, just last week 2,000 Republican fat cats gathered in Washington to gawk at Sarah Palin and listen to Newt Gingrich call President Obama a failure.  And, they ponied up millions of dollars to fuel unrelenting attacks by Republican retreads on President Obama and his efforts to get America back on track.

Well, they may have their fat cats, but we have you.

That`s why I need you to stand with me and President Obama before the big FEC June 30th fundraising deadline with a contribution of $5, $10 or more.

Here`s the deal: for every $1 you donate to support President Obama`s agenda before June 30th, a team of House Democrats will donate $2 of their own.

Trust me, my fellow political analysts and network pundits will be pouring over our fundraising totals to see how powerful grassroots support is for the President`s agenda.  We need a strong showing. 

Contribute $5, $10 or more to the DCCC`s Million Dollar Match* campaign before the June 30th deadline and see your gift tripled by a team of Congressional Democrats.

Rush, Newt and Cheney are stuck in the past and doing everything they can to take back control of Congress and block President Obama`s historic efforts to pass health care reform, fix climate change and restore America`s standing in the world. 

How about you and I tell them we`re not interested in more of the same.  Help us leave the RNC`s policies in the past where they belong and move America boldly into the future. 

Contribute $5, $10 or more to the DCCC`s Million Dollar Match* campaign before the June 30th deadline and see your gift tripled by a team of Congressional Democrats.

Sincerely,

Paul Begala
