Obama is Arrogantly Desperate

Obama and his staff have really gone off the deep end.  At first, I thought it was a joke.  It is no joke, folks.  Obama is really soliciting funds from people by way of their birthdays, weddings and other life events. Is Obama for real?

I'm really not so sure that having people donate to Obama's campaign is a better gift than a gravy bowl.  I still use the gravy boat that we were given as a wedding gift 19+ years ago.  With this economy, brides and grooms need all the gifts they can get -- they can't afford to buy everything. What is Obama thinking on this one? People are probably having rehearsal dinners without the gravy and he's asking them to donate to his campaign.

In the current economy, I think it takes quite a bit of audacity to tell people to ask for donations instead of getting gift cards you will forget to use.  In this economy?  No one will forget to use a gift card.  We go to Sam's every 2 weeks and used to get by for $300. Now I am lucky to get out around $420.  My purchases have not changed-- meat, food and cleaning supplies for my family....and this man wants people to forgo gift cards they CAN actually use.  Those gift cards will get you further than getting Barack Obama reelected, folks.

It takes an arrogant man to ask people to donate to his campaign instead of accepting gifts on their special days.  

Wedding gifts are cherished memories of a special day. I have gifts from my friends that we have used our entire 19+ years of marriage! They make holidays special and other events precious.  These wedding gifts are a way that we can remember those special people in our lives each and every time we use the item for years to come. These gifts will outlive any president's term in office.  Mr. Obama needs to get over himself.  

The Obama Event Registry is his latest money raising tactic.  Laura Wilson posted today:
Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?
Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.
Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy

When you click on the link, you get more ideas:
Register with Obama 2012
Got a special milestone or event coming up?
Instead of another gift card you’ll forget to use, ask your friends and family for something that will go a little further: a donation to Obama for America. Register your next celebration—whether it’s a birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, wedding, or anniversary—with the Obama campaign. It’s a great way to show your support for a cause that’s important to you on your big day.

 Peace Out.
