President Obama sent a message to supporters this morning:
We now know who our opponent is.
But what we're really fighting against is what our opponent has pledged to do if elected.
He would shower billionaires with more huge tax breaks, oppose setting a timeline to bring our troops home from Afghanistan, starve investments in clean energy research, and make it harder for students to afford to go to college. He'd outlaw a woman's right to choose and completely cut funding for Planned Parenthood.
We can't afford an endless war in Afghanistan, a return to policies that hurt the middle class, and a social agenda from the 1950s.
The stakes and the differences are profound. The outcome of this election will determine the course of this country for decades to come.
I need you by my side.
