Last week, a video revealed what Mitt Romney really thinks of half the country: "dependent upon government" and "victims."

First Lady Michelle Obama took the stage for the first night of the Democratic National Convention and delivered a powerful speech about family and the promise of America. Watch it—then if you're fired up, chip in to help us win.
Mitt Romney's advice for students struggling to afford college: "Borrow money from your parents" or just "shop around."
Here's what Mitt Romney has in common with his new running mate, Paul Ryan: They'd both drive us back to the same failed, top-down economic ideas that crashed our economy and punished the middle class.
The budget that Ryan is famous for is extreme: It would end Medicare as we know it, turning our guaranteed promise to seniors into a voucher program. One of his proposals could have raised seniors' health costs by up to $6,350 a year.
And just like Mitt Romney, Ryan calls for a tax hike on millions of middle-class Americans to pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires. Ryan's budget would make permanent the Bush tax cuts, which he criticized at the time for being too small. And to add insult to injury, he'd pay for budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans by gutting federal college scholarships and other investments critical to middle-class security.
Ryan talks tough about balancing the budget, but his plan wouldn't do that for a generation—leaving the middle class to suffer in the meantime.
We can't afford Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
