Michael --

Want to have a cup of coffee sometime soon?

I'm sure we'll have a lot to talk about, but mainly I just want to say thanks for helping out.

Make a donation of $3 or whatever you can to grow this grassroots campaign, and be automatically entered for the chance to come hang out -- flight, hotel, and coffee on us. You can even bring a guest.

Barack and I know that we ask you for a lot. We wouldn't do it if we didn't believe that folks like you are going to decide this election.

The spending on the other side this year is literally unprecedented. If nothing changes, Barack is on pace to be the first president in modern history to get outspent in his re-election campaign.

What you do will determine how this goes.

Make a grassroots donation today, and you'll be automatically entered to win:


Last week was a big one for this campaign. The truth is we need every week to be that big. We need to dig deeper and deeper every day if we want to win.

Hope to see you soon,


The Obama Campaign is continuing their fundraising gimmicks in an effort to try and keep ahead of Mitt Romney’s growing momentum. Romney hauled in over $16 million more than Barack in May. Most recently the Obama camp was quick to point out their stronger fundraising after the SCOTUS upheld Obamacare, although they are refusing to say exactly how much they rose from the decision.

First it was win dinner with Barack, then it was forego your gifts and contribute to the campaign, and now its grab coffee with the Vice President.

Do you think Biden will take the winners to a 7/11 or a Dunkin Donuts for their coffee?
