Gimme Your Loot

Richie Rich

Obama wants your birthday presents and your wedding gifts.

No joke. On the Obama-Biden website (and by now twittered all over cyberspace), they have “the very latest” — their wording, not mine — fundraising effort:

The Obama Event Registry

“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—so get started today.

This grab goes “a lot further than a gravy bowl“, does it? Well, they’ve got that right: it goes straight to the heart of Obama’s shameless greed and mendacity. It's the Chicago Way... and Obama is the Truth and the Light, see? So how could you refuse?

As any Southerner could will tell you, the man wasn’t raised right. Anyone this clueless should be doing something else with his life besides taking up room on the Oval Office couch watching ESPN.

Let's see how the Lefticides will spin this tasteless, gobsmackingly tacky grab.

Oh, and what do you want to bet he goes after your child’s piggy bank next? Or even better...

...he’ll make you a deal: open up your pension plan right now and give him a — heh — “small” percentage. By next Friday he could have a directive inked and ready — all you have to do is sign over part of your future and he’ll guarantee you government support when the time comes: plenty of space on your very own ice floe.

Plus, he'll throw in a blanket. Much better than some old gravy bowl.

Better get the blanket part in writing, though.

Hopium and Change aren't substitutes for political successes which he none of or at least that are relevant to those in the private sector and not rich.

All in all, I mark this gambit up to sheer desperation, the money streams are drying up. I guess all the mysterious sub $200 donations he got last time are all gone along with support from the college kiddie set. Sure Hollywood is pouring in the money but it's not enough.

Could it be that his masters who bankrolled his last billion dollar campaign are less than enthused with his idiotic performance and his alienation of the White working class and independents that put him over the last time?

IIRC, the Baron said it was 1957 or 58. He had to sludge thru some movie stuff - Richie Rich in a MOVIE? Minerva, the smelling salts, pls.

Now, really looking at the cartoon, I see your point, Mike:D

Oh, I forgot to tell y'all!

Joshua Pundit had an even earlier sleaze story. The Obama campaign is selling designer "wear" for their fundraising. As in I rilly, rilly kid you not:

Obama Campaign Selling Fashion Items, Including Their Very Own Arafat-Style Keffiya

I want the pink one. And Mrs. O can use one of them instead of those humungous belts she favors. Wait...not fair. I haven't seen a picture of her lately. Maybe wiser heads have prevailed there.

They put our puny fundraising efforts to shame...only thing is the news reports say it's going out faster than it's coming in.

But isn't that how this administration has been since the git-go? Their deficits range far beyond the fiscal into the ethical, competent, and constitutional.
