Sleazy Obama Campaign Reaches New Low Trolling For Donors


news_120625_barack_obama.jpg



From Denny:  In a new low of politics, the Obama camp has turned on their Sleaze Factor to record high levels.  They expect donations to come to them in lieu of your bridal registry, your birthday gifts, even your wedding anniversary.  Can Obama sound any more self-absorbed and greedy?  The Creep Freak Flag is flying high and it isn't even Halloween season yet.

Democrat campaign donors are drying up in this political mean season.  Big Banks and Big Business have all made a mad dash to Team Romney, anointing him with boatloads of cash like they did Obama six months before the election in 2008.  Big Business has changed sides this year.

Obama disappointed Big Business and his own voters alike.  Big Business whined for the entire past 3.5 years, complaining about any mild slaps on the wrists and cheap easy fines from Obama (so he could appear to look good to the public).  Real Democrats complained Obama sucked up to Big Business and never defended the middle class, instead allowing half of the middle class to slip into low income and poverty on his watch.  The middle class have lost their homes by the millions as millions of jobs trotted off overseas.

So, what is the Obama-Axelrod coalition doing to raise money when the biggest donors have gone on a walkabout?  They have turned to raiding the bridal registries of young women.  No kidding.  This is unbelievable.  It sure makes me glad a few posts ago I announced how I've left the Democratic Party (life long liberal/progressive Democrat) and joined the ranks of the Independents like many other disenfranchised voters.  Until corporate donors and the outrageous sleaze like this is scrubbed from the Democratic Party I will not vote for another Democrat.

What idiot dreamed up this nasty idea for fund raising?  How crass can you get?  Yes, it's true.  Snopes.com wrote about it too just to confirm the crazy idea was not a prank.

It's like Obama and Axelrod were standing around the Oval Office, brain-storming about how they could raise easy money.  Then the obvious thought landed in their laps:  It's June, the month of lavish weddings, rich fathers and blushing brides.  Hey, they declared, there's some serious money wrapped up in all those expensive gifts people buy.  Let's screw the bride before the groom does.  


Now, let's figure out how to tell them to send us all that cash in a way that looks like they don't feel screwed.  And then they sent out their dutiful idiot campaign aides to write the marketing campaign as if women were really that stupid to go along with it.  Of course, for political cover, they stamped a woman's name to the blog post so she could be the one to fade the heat if it came their way.


Here's what the Obama Event Registry blogged:





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.
Just log in or sign up to build and customize your page—and congratulations!



Now check out their suggestions for what you can say to your friends to talk them out of sending you a wedding gift and, instead, giving it to the Obama campaign:

"It's a great way to support the President on your big day," the Obama Event Registry site reads. "Plus, it's a gift that we can all appreciate -- and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl."



If you think that's crass - it gets worse.  Supporters are instructed to set a monetary goal for their friends and family to provide.  Then it goes on to give the registered users, i. e., the bride, pre-written copy to send out begging for donations:


"For my big day, I'd like to show my support for a cause I believe in -- re-electing President Obama.  That's why I'm asking my friends and family to donate to the Obama campaign. Thanks for chipping in!"


"Let your friends know how important this election is to you," the post reads. "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 for Obama for America."



Read that as "Your wedding day(/anniversary/birthday) celebration isn't that special.  After all, it's just a starter marriage and you will end up divorced in a couple of years anyway.  Give your money to us; we're far more important than you.  You are just a bunch of dewy-eyed romantic women.  Forget blowhard Rush Limbaugh's anti-women rants, President Obama wants what's in your wallet.  Yeah, let misogyny rule!  And how does Obama think this will solidify the women's vote...?

So, that basically means young women are no longer allowed their one day of fantasy before reality camps on their front doorstep.  The President of the United States wants to take over your wedding day, divert your wedding money his way and basically act like a rude and greedy drunken party crasher.  Can it get any worse?  Stay tuned to witness the Republicans and President Obama 2.0.

Hummm, come to think of it, this Second half of the year of 2012, our First Grand-Son's B-day, his Elder sister's (our First Grand-Daughter's) B-day, their mom's (our Daughter-in-Law's) B-day, my better-half's and my wedding-anniversary all coming up before the US President's election day. Now the incumbent President of the US of A "asks anyone with an upcoming birthday, wedding, or anniversary to "support the President on your big day" by asking for donation money "in lieu of a gift."" Begs me to ask the question of "Why" - why in the world should I support Mr. Obama at this juncture especially after more than 3 and half years while he's in the US President's office, at the best, he only has done a So-So average job for America. "A donation for Obama for America"? What an absurd audacity?! Talk to my right-hand's index finger and what do you know - it's waving left and right which means "Hell No"!

OK. I will cancel this year's anniversary celebration and empty my savings account, and send him the interest I've earned since 2009, the entire $.48.

The first email I received from Obama; he was askingme to send $3 to enter a lottery drawing for the chance to have dinner with him.

The second email was asking for $3 for the chance to have lunch with him.

The third email came from Michelle asing or a donation to enter yet another lottery; this time to help the President celebrate his birthday.

Last week; on TV; I heard some ploy to get money from chidren.

Basically; it wanted the kid to empty their piggy banks for the chance to have lunch with Obama.

They seem to forget that the kids piggy banks are already empty; thanks to them; and will continue to be empty for generations to come.

Now; they want us to give the money we would otherwise spend on gifts to him.

Obama and Michelle spend most of their days basking in the glow of their advisors and aides who tell them 24/7 what wonderful people they are and how much good they are doing for the US.

They have such high opinions of themselves, they actually believe all these lies.!

This should come as no surprise, because they believe their own lies as well.

Obama and Michelle have no shame.

I guess their next solicitation will be to go to a blood bank that pays for donations; and ask you to send them the proceeds from that.
