Obama’s Post Debate Pitch: “I Don’t Want To Lose This Election

IT’S THE pitch Rush Limbaugh just read over the airwaves.

But there’s an old rule in competition. Never let them see you sweat.

Mitt Romney may have been the one spritzing last night, but today it’s President Obama.

Taylor –

I don’t want to lose this election.

Not because of what losing would mean for me — Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.

But because of what it would mean for our country and middle-class families.

This race is very close.

I’m not willing to watch the progress you and I worked so hard to achieve be undone.

Time is running out to make an impact — please don’t wait any longer. Donate $5 or more today:

I believe in you. If you stick with me, and if we fight harder than ever for the next two weeks, I truly believe we can’t lose.

Thank you,


P.S. — I don’t know what Election Night will hold, but I’d like you to be a part of the event here in Chicago. Any donation you make today automatically enters you for a chance to meet me — airfare and hotel for you and a guest are covered.

Romney’s post debate pitch:


I’m glad I had the opportunity to debate President Obama last night, and I hope you were able to watch. I wouldn’t have been there if it weren’t for supporters like you, and I appreciate you standing with me.

If elected, Paul Ryan and I, and the Republican team, will work to restore strength to America. Our children deserve it, our nation depends upon it, and the peace and freedom of the world require it.

Thank you for believing America can do better, and that together, we can restore the country we love. Thanks to supporters like you, we have built one of the strongest grassroots organizations in history.

Over 119,000 volunteers have made nearly 45 million volunteer voter contacts since Victory launched this year, including over 9 million door-to-door voter contacts — and that’s incredible.

We are fired up and ready to turn out the vote during Early Voting and on Election Day. But we need resources to compete with the Obama spin machine.

President Obama and the liberal Democrats are planning to blanket key battleground states with a surge of negative attack ads — and we have to ensure that our message is heard.

Please donate $15 today to make sure the Republican team has the resources we need in these last few weeks to counter the Obama spin machine and Democrats across the country.

Thank you for all you do,

Mitt Romney

    In all due respect, neither of those words from Team Obama nor Team Romney will make or break them now. It’s going to be all about turnout on November 6th.

    Oh and billboards telling urban folks of particular shades that voter fraud is a crime (paid for by an anonymous group).

    Oh and Hank Williams telling folks that we need to get rid of the “Dictator for Life” (aka President Obama).

    Oh and Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Swiss bank accounts.

    Oh and dogs and cats sleeping together (put signing prenuptial agreements before doing so even though they aren’t married).

    Is it November 7th yet? That’s the REAL interesting day.

      Heya T-Steel. Not about whether they’ll “make or break” them. But the differences in the message is stark.

      The last 2 weeks are going to be a gas! (So says this particular political hack ;-)

      Agreed. The first debate made this an actual race- before it, this was a pretty dull, listless campaign which seemed to be heading for an inevitable Obama win, probably by a substantial margin similar to his 2008 showing. That all changed with the first debate, and now it’s going down to the wire and concluding with a very late election night. Something I used to love- when I was a partisan democrat who would cheer the election of everyone with a “D” after their name, regardless of whether I had ever heard of the person beforehand.

      Probably the “best” possible result is a razor-thin Obama victory which convinces the President that he needs to reach out to his base and at least ATTEMPT a progressive second term. I see the razor-thin victory as very probable, but the second half is almost certainly just a pipe dream of mine.

    “I Want To Win This Election”

    There, fixed it. Always accentuate the positive.
