Watch Obama Respond to the Republican Convention
John McCain and the Republicans had all week to make their case -- and didn't do it.The whole Republican convention went by without offering a solid plan to improve the lives of ordinary Americans.
And people noticed! In the last 24 hours, more people have donated to the Obama-Biden campaign for the first time than ever before.
Barack is making clear what this election should be about. At a campaign stop in Pennsylvania yesterday, he spoke out about what we didn't hear at the Republican convention.You can help make sure that Barack's message of change is heard loud and clear.
We learned just this morning that unemployment jumped to its highest rate in five years, and our economy lost 605,000 jobs this year alone -- at a time when John McCain believes that the fundamentals of our economy are "strong."
McCain can talk all he wants about change, but he has voted with George W. Bush more than 90 percent of the time, and Americans aren't buying it.
Here are a few of the responses the Obama camp received from voters who watched the Republican convention:
"This is one Republican for Obama who knows 100% now that I made the right choice and will in November vote for Obama-Biden." -- Bev from Georgia
"Republicans like Palin, Giuliani, and Romney can engage in red-meat partisan vitriol all they want, right out of the Karl Rove playbook, but this isn't 2000 or 2004. Americans now have seen and felt the full impact of GOP policies on their pocketbook." -- Rick from Colorado
"What the Republicans displayed ... is more of the same old thing -- unproductive politics. I hope and pray that the American voters will see through this and realize that we need a different mindset and approach if we are ever going to get things done in Washington." -- Patricia from Kansas
Watch Barack's response to the Republican convention, and join millions of Obama-Biden backers in supporting real solutions and making sure Americans know what's at stake:
