“Tea Party Rampant, GOP Reeling”
“GOP Leaders Admit O’Connell in Delaware is Unelectable”
“ Rove says O’Connell is Nutty”
“Soul Searching Time; A GOP Torn”
These are the headlines in Slate and Politico this morning.
How quickly the pundits turn on a dime as the realization occurs that the GOP Tea Party, the party of Just Say No, may not be quite as popular with a troubled electorate as they thought.
So now the real work begins. 47 days to go to November 2, 2010. Make no mistake, every single thing we have achieved in the last 6 years is at risk in this election.
As we take stock, and think about where we can each provide the most impact, remember this.
Barack Obama was never going to be elected President of the United States. And yet, he is. All the pundits and prognosticators were wrong. We had a plan , stuck to it, and changed America. For the Better. You had a plan and you executed it through sheer hard work.
Again, we ask that each of you choose a place where you can make a difference, be it financial, or field. Or calling from home. Or knocking on doors. Each and every candidate in Congressional, state, and other Federal races needs your help to survive the Just Say No crowd.
We know that, with each of you working, you will prove the prognosticators and pundits wrong again.
1. Donations to Obama For America/DNC will go directly to sustaining needs in varied races nationwide.
2. Simply and directly, each congressional, state, and senatorial race needs help. Each race needs you.

In 2006, you won the Congress.
In 2008, you elected Barack Obama and changed America.
The race for 2010 is in each of our hands. Everything you have achieved is at stake.
We ask, once again, for your hands, your treasure, your voice, and your vote. Do something. Do anything. The outcome on November 3, depends on only one thing. you.
We Stand, With You, For Hope and Change
