Obama Uses Bush and McCain Fundraiser In $ Appeal

This just hit my inbox:

Philip —

Right now you have a unique opportunity to go head-to-head with George W. Bush.

This week, John McCain and George Bush gathered behind closed doors, away from the cameras, to raise money for McCain’s campaign.

McCain used Bush to raise a reported $3.5 million from a group of about 500 Republican contributors.

That’s a lot of money that will undoubtedly be used to attack us and make the case to continue George Bush’s failed policies.

But I have an idea about how we can match it. And we don’t need George Bush.

Right now, someone who has already given once to the campaign is ready to give again — but only if you make your first donation right now.

If you take the next step and decide to own a piece of this campaign, that supporter will double your gift.

You’ll see the name and hometown of the person who matched your donation. And you can even choose to exchange a personal note about why you’ve decided to support a different kind of politics…
