Just last week in an online forum I read how someone was upset with an anchor because she said she received her Barack Obama text message (on choosing Joe Biden.) He went on to criticize the liberal media.
I was signed up to receive the Obama text, as well as with McCain to stay up on his campaign.
I am going to assume that anchor was signed up for both as well. She maybe should have made that point.
Anyway, following last night’s first debate between John McCain and Barack Obama, I received emails from both of them.
McCain’s email began with saying it was a “spirited debate” and that he is returning to Washington to resume negotiations to try to solve the economic crisis. ” I am optimistic we will come to a final agreement soon. All voices must be represented in the final agreement, especially those of taxpayers and homeowners.”
Barack Obama began by outlining what he says he means by “ the change we need or more of the same.”
“I will provide tax cuts for the middle class, affordable health care, and a new energy economy that creates millions of jobs. John McCain wants to keep giving huge tax cuts to corporations, and he offered no solutions for the challenges Americans are facing in their daily lives.”
Of course both took the opportunity to ask for donations, but since supporters are the ones usually signed up, it’s probably the only point of the emails.
The complete text of both emails follows, beginning with McCain.
FROM JOHN MCCAIN
Tonight, Senator Obama and I participated in the first debate of the general election. It was a spirited debate and I believe the difference between our visions for America were made very clear.
In a few hours, I will return to Washington to resume negotiations with the Administration and Congressional leaders from both parties to forge a bipartisan solution to our economic crisis. I am optimistic we will come to a final agreement soon. All voices must be represented in the final agreement, especially those of taxpayers and homeowners.
We cannot be interested in who would get credit for finding a solution and who would be blamed if an agreement cannot be reached. We must put our country first to solve this economic crisis. Because in the end, that’s what leaders do in times of crisis.
Our next president and Congress will face challenging times that require selfless leadership. They must find solutions to issues like the economy, national security, and energy independence. I’m ready to work with Governor Palin and our Congressional allies to address the nation’s most pressing challenges. Make no mistake, we are ready to lead and the Obama-Biden Democrats are not.
But, the truth is that we won’t win without your support. We’re less than 40 days away from Election Day and polls in races across the country are extremely close. In the final weeks of this campaign, we will need to fund crucial get-out-the-vote and grassroots activities that will assist our entire ticket, from the top to the bottom to secure victory on Election Day. I’m asking you to help us by making a contribution right now to McCain-Palin Victory 2008.
Your support is always deeply appreciated and I thank you for your generosity.
FROM BARACK OBAMA:
I just finished my first debate with John McCain.
Millions of Americans finally got a chance to see us take on the fundamental choice in this election — the change we need or more of the same.
I will provide tax cuts for the middle class, affordable health care, and a new energy economy that creates millions of jobs. John McCain wants to keep giving huge tax cuts to corporations, and he offered no solutions for the challenges Americans are facing in their daily lives.
I will end the war in Iraq responsibly, focus on defeating al Qaeda and the Taliban, and restore America’s standing in the world after eight years of disastrous policies. John McCain wants an unending commitment in Iraq and fails to recognize the resurgent threat in Afghanistan.
Let’s be clear: John McCain is offering nothing but more of the same failed Bush policies at home and abroad that he has supported more than 90% of the time in the Senate.
Americans need change now, and I need your help to get the word out about this movement.
In the coming days, it’s going to be up to you to organize locally and reach the voters that are going to decide this election.
Now’s the time to make your voice heard.
Please make a donation of $5 or more right now to support this campaign for change:
Thank you for all that you’re doing,
