The attacks on President Obama started before he even took office, and they’ve only gotten worse. Republicans, their ideas discredited, their policies responsible for the incredible challenges we face, have stepped up their attacks, spreading misinformation about policy proposals, and even criticizing the President’s date with his wife.
We can’t afford to let up at all. It’s tough, hard fighting in Congress to make progress on getting new jobs, real reform of our health care system, and a new energy economy, and we need everyone to know that Democrats are not going to let up until we get the job done.
I’ve seen first hand how the far right reacts when they see their failed policies challenged. Rush Limbaugh calls for failure, and Republican House leaders back him up. When their attacks start flying, we need to hit them hard.
June 30th marks a critical FEC deadline where both Republicans and Democrats must report how much money they have in the bank. The political pundits, media and the GOP will use these totals as a referendum on support for President Obama, and they’ve already started running ridiculous stories about a GOP “comeback.” We need your help to raise $1 million before June 30th to show the world how committed we are to standing with President Obama and against those who are rooting for him – and America – to fail.
From our economic recovery, to health care reform, to meeting the climate crisis, to restoring our moral leadership in the world, there is far too much at stake. The amount we raise will be used to judge how committed we are to standing with President Obama and his agenda for change, or whether these Republican attacks are actually starting to work.
That’s why it’s so critical that we make a strong show of support for President Obama before June 30th.
The power to stand strong against these attacks is in your hands.
Please help us before Midnight on June 30th.
Senator John Kerry
P.S. If there was ever a doubt that the far right intends to go after President Obama with the same dishonorable attacks they used on me, just listen to the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich rooting for our President to fail. Contribute by Midnight on June 30th to help us fight back on behalf of President Obama. Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats will match every dollar you give with two of their own.*
