The Most Panicky Panicked Email Ever?

  • Print

Desperate much? I know that fundraising emails are supposed to convey a certain sense of urgency. But "We risk losing everything"  just reeks of something a whole lot worse.

Subject: We risk losing everything

Obama - Biden
We're being seriously outraised, and there's not much time left.

As of last week, Mitt Romney and the Republicans had $45 million more to spend than our side.

That puts us at an alarming disadvantage in a close race with just 9 days to go. Please help close the gap today.

We have more than 4 million people who own a piece of this campaign, and the other side wants to straight-up buy this election from under our feet with a few big checks, and flood the airwaves with negative ads that distort the President's record and attack his character outright.

I know it can be aggravating. Believe me. But we have to stay focused.

Look, we knew this onslaught of spending was coming, and that's why we're here day after day asking you to help drive us forward. Now it's time for you to step up and join the team.

We need to fight this now, without delay -- and, for that to happen, I need you to do your part, or we risk losing everything we've built and invested in:

Don't let up.

Ann Marie

P.S. -- Also, tomorrow is your absolute last chance to enter for a free trip to Chicago to meet the President, and be there front row for his speech on Election Night. What you do now will decide just how that night goes.
