Offering up yet another the bizarre statements for which he is famous, Vice President Joe Biden said in a fundraising email sent out today that he and President Obama consider campaign donors their “second family.”
From the conclusion of the email:
Barack and I honestly wish we could thank everyone who contributes to this campaign personally. You’re our second family, you know.
In the email, Biden asks members of his second family for $3, saying the money is needed before “the most urgent fundraising deadline of this campaign so far,” the closing of the books on the month of July.
Romney, Biden charges, is threatening to spend the Obama campaign “into oblivion” in order to seize the presidency to do terrible things to the country:
The only way someone like Mitt Romney — who’s asking Americans to put him in charge of their taxes while refusing to come clean about his own, who wants to repeal Obamacare, end Medicare as we know it and give more tax breaks to billionaires who don’t need them — defeats someone like Barack Obama, is if the other side spends us into oblivion.
Biden’s email is one of a series of increasingly histrionic messages being sent to supporters by the Obama campaign officials warning that Romney is outraising them and donations are urgently needed.
