Obama: "What does your T-shirt say?"

"Dear Arnaldo:

According to our records, you are registered in California's 30th Congressional District.

What the nation saw on Tuesday night was leadership.
President Obama reminded us that, when Americans are faced with the most difficult challenges, we come together -- and we do big things.

But not everyone in Washington is ready to share the President's vision for winning the future. Too many are intent on doing all they can to emphasize divisions at the expense of what we share in common.

There's only one way to respond: show them what unity looks like.

The past two years have brought us to a defining moment. Millions of Americans across the country were inspired by the President's message -- heartened by a renewed and common sense of purpose. What we make of this moment is up to us.

President Obama needs Organizing for America to do what we all do best to achieve this agenda: focus on the grassroots and build on this momentum. A big part of that is making sure his message makes it as far and wide as possible.

Right now, if you make a donation of $25 or more, we'll send you a free, limited-edition "We do big things" T-shirt, so you can publicly show your support for his vision.
Please donate $25 or more today. The challenges ahead will be difficult enough without the politics of Washington getting in the way.

The President was clear: If we're going to pursue an economy that works for all Americans and re-asserts our place in the world, we must turn to what makes this country great.

We should foster innovation and invest in our children's future through education, preparing us for tomorrow's jobs and tomorrow's industries.

We should rebuild our country -- from roads and bridges to high-speed rail and Internet -- and re-establish our infrastructure as the best in the world. We should take responsibility for the debts we've incurred and meaningfully tackle the deficit that too many in Washington have ignored for too long.

And we should continue to reform our government, making it leaner, cleaner, and more transparent to the people it works for.

That's the vision President Obama laid out for winning the future. And it's exactly why we elected him president.

But unless we take action -- unless we back up that vision with our voices and our organizing -- the State of the Union is just a speech. Now let's answer that call.

Please donate $25 or more today and we'll send you a commemorative "We do big things" T-shirt so you can wear your support with pride:

Today, I couldn't be prouder to stand with President Obama -- and I couldn't be prouder to stand with you.
