Republicans -apologists

Republicans just released their latest fundraising report and it’s got me fired up. For two straight months now, Republicans have broken fundraising records! I guess being apologists for Big Oil pays.

Here’s what it comes down to. This June 30th FEC deadline is as big as it gets. If we don’t beat the Republicans, it will be seen as a sign the GOP has all the momentum. We can’t let it happen.

Help House Democrats raise $1 million in grassroots gifts by the June 30th FEC deadline. Contribute $5, $10 or more today and a group of Democrats will match you dollar-for-dollar.

Stop  Sarah Palin's Tea Party

John Boehner must be worried about all his British Petroleum stock. Because in addition to record-breaking fundraising from special interests, he also just kicked off his “Battleground” campaign to get Republican House Members to raise $20 million so they can protect Big Oil’s agenda.

We have more seats in play this year, but right now, Republicans are raising more money.

We know what happens when Democrats have resources – we won the special election in Pennsylvania’s 12 district when a lot of the supposedly smart money was saying we couldn’t win a district in 2010 that Barack Obama couldn’t win in 2008. But we did.

We’re already close to making our grassroots goal. Help put us over the top by the June 30th FEC filing deadline.

P.S. June 30th marks the first FEC deadline since Republicans broke fundraising records for two months in a row now, thanks to all that Big Oil special interest money pouring in. The media is closely watching to see whether grassroots Democrats can reclaim the momentum for our side. Contribute today and a group of Democrats will match you dollar-for-dollar.

A message for OFA from the President

Organizing for America

President Obama recorded a message for OFA supporters to update us on the crisis in the Gulf and why it’s critical that we establish a new foundation for energy in this country.

Watch the President's update.

Promoting Responsible Fatherhood

June 21, 2010 — President Obama announces the Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative, a nationwide effort to support responsible fatherhood and to help re-engage absentee fathers in the lives of their children at a Father’s Day event in Washington, DC. June 21, 2010.

Will Democrats Cave?

In his State of the Union address, President Obama pledged to end the law that denies gays and lesbians the right to serve their country. And last month, the full House of Representatives and the Senate Armed Services Committee finally voted to make it happen and repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” There’s only one more step left before we succeed: a vote of the full U.S. Senate.

The problem is Republican Senator Roger Wicker from Mississippi has announced Republicans will filibuster. Senator John McCain said, “I’ll do everything in my power” to block a vote. One after another, Republicans are vowing to stand united against the entire defense budget if the repeal isn’t stripped from the bill.

With the November elections right around the corner, we have to ask: If Republicans filibuster, will Democrats cave?

We’re not willing to sit down and hope Democrats stand strong. It’s up to us to make sure they deliver.


Over 75% of Americans, according to a recent CNN news poll, want to end this discrimination now. But some Democrats in Washington have cold feet, worried about how Republicans will frame it in an election year.

After dragging their feet for months, enough Democrats finally stood up to lead once the progressive community — including the leadership of Governor Howard Dean and the members of Democracy for America, Courage Campaign Equality, Servicemembers United, MoveOn, OpenLeft and over 30 other organizations — united in calling for action.

But will Democrats stand their ground? The New York Times reports John McCain has solicited letters from those who oppose repeal on the Joint Chiefs of Staff — the chiefs of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines — in an attempt to use top brass to pressure Democrats to buckle. McCain, of course, isn’t acting alone. He’s being amplified by FOX News and the right-wing Family Research Council, which released ads claiming Obama is trying to “force open homosexuality on the military.”

It’s offensive and outrageous, but it could work to stop repeal.


Over 13,500 Americans have been discharged from military service for no reason other than their sexual orientation. They were willing to die for America. We dishonor that sacrifice every day “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” continues.

President Obama said it best. We must end this law because “it’s the right thing to do.”

We will end this discrimination now. Then, working together, we’ll defeat candidates for office — Republicans and Democrats — who stood in the way.

Thank you for everything you do.
