We're about to get hit with an avalanche of negative ads.
Romney-allied outside groups have already lined up more than $23 million in television spending for this week alone.
That's been the other side's strategy from the beginning: slamming the airwaves with ads trashing the President and his record.
Matt, I'll be blunt: They are trying to buy this election, and we're the only ones who are standing in their way. Don't wait any longer to take ownership of this campaign.
Can you chip in $5 or more right now to help?
We've worked too hard to slow down now. We need to bear down these last 29 days, because Governor Romney and his allies aren't going to play fair or take it easy on us. Take it from their own adviser: "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers."
We need to keep fighting and get the back of the guy who's got ours -- will you chip in today?
Thanks. Let's keep this up.
I get the same one....Except they think my name is Saul Alinski ;-)
“Matt, we’re buying a lot of people’s groceries with taxpayer money funding all the food stamps. The least people could do is send us $5 for using other people’s money to buy their groceries.”
When I first read this, I thought it was some kind of secret communiqué between the White House and Matt Lauer!
Wait a sec -- wouldn't taking ownership make Matt an eeeeevvvillll capitalist???
Yeah, you will be in the “lottery” with another million or so easily deceived $5 losers....:))
Somehow I ended up on a left wing mailing list of Move On. This is an email re how the left wing progressives feel about the debate:
Dear MoveOn member,
That was infuriating.
During last nights presidential debate, Mitt Romney smirked his way through dozens of mischaracterizations, distortions, and outright lies. The moderator, Jim Lehrer, never cut him off. And now the mainstream media is saying that Mitt won the debate.
We cant let Romney win the debate on a boatload of lies.
He lied about his tax plan, his deficit plan, and Medicare. He lied about what Obamacare would do. He lied, baldly and convincingly, about Obamas entire presidency.1
We need to move quickly to set the record straight. Our online team worked overnight preparing a media blitzincluding online ads targeted at swing-state voterscorrecting the worst lies in an easy-to-share format.
Chip in $5 to get the truth outcountering Mitts lies.
If we dont fight back now with the truth, some of those lies will stick, and Romney could pull ahead.
Already, Romney and his Super PAC friends have spent millions on blatantly false ads attacking President Obama for gutting work requirements for welfare and cutting $700 million from Medicare.
Last night was more of the same.
And research shows that when lies get repeated enough times people will believe themno matter how outlandish they might seem. The only way to keep Romney honest is to make sure the facts get corrected on the spot.
Were now in the moment when millions of undecided voters who dont usually pay attention to politics start to focus.
This is it. This is what MoveOns massive online network is for. Lets use it.
Please chip in $5.
Thanks for all you do.
Angie, Mark, Lenore, Tate, and the rest of the team

In my mail to you I forgot to say that that contribution is of course for Romney!
Just send it back and tell them that you need the $5 for green fees, that Obama will understand.
Gee, Matt. So you and Dave are on a first name basis!
The trouble with liars and cheaters is that they assume the other guys will do the same thing.
I donated $30.00 to the Romney tonight...
Take that you bastard...
