More Creative Ways to Support Obama 2012

June 25, 2012

We already knew that Barack Obama was a full-time campaigner (with a side job as president, when he can fit it in), but this is novel:  The Obama campaign now recommends that you register your wedding with them—that you actually ask your wedding guests to donate to Obama’s re-election effort (i.e., to fund ads smearing Romney?) in lieu of gifts—explaining that four more years would be “a gift that we can all appreciate”!

The Obama campaign also recommends you do the same with your anniversary or birthday celebration.

Read the report at  It’s even being reported by CBS (which I’m sure I don’t have to tell you is not exactly a bunch of conservatives), and at least as of this writing, you can also still see the original post itself at

There are just too many jokes to make here about people’s unhealthy relationship to the president (or, for that matter, his unhealthy relationship to himself), but I’m not going to make any of them.  Instead, in the spirit of bipartisanship and reconciliation, I thought I would suggest a few more creative ways for the flagging Obama campaign to solicit donations:

Donate a Day of Babysitting

The Obama family can’t afford to have Michelle stay at home with the children—or else doing so makes her ill, we’re not sure which.  Either way, free up resources for use elsewhere with your in-kind donation of babysitting services.

Sponsor a Dog

Instead of rescuing dogs from the pound, give to this worthy cause:  For every $100 donated to the campaign, the White House kitchen will let one dog go free.

Organ Donation

Obama can’t run on his record, and he can’t run against the establishment again as the candidate of post-partisan “hope” and “change”—this time, he is the establishment.  In other words, the Obama campaign doesn’t have a leg to stand on.  Why not donate one of yours?

Bumper Stickers

Turn your personal vehicle into an unpaid ad for Obama 2012 for years to come.

On second thought, strike that last one—too far-fetched.

Bonus suggestion (from the comments under the original blog entry at

When you lose your job you can donate half your unemployment too

Hat tip to Rush Limbaugh.  (I see that Hot Air and Disrupt the Narrative were on it days ago.)

    You have failed to consider that Obama may actually be the Messiah.

    • No, enough of that. I’ll let you link to your off-topic NYT article of the day again, but only if you first articulate in your own words what proposition you want it to stand for, so that anyone who may want to argue with you can argue with you directly. You can’t just bring in the whole NYT staff to do all your arguing for you.

        My point is the same as it has always been: politics is all lies, distortions, and money. Romney or Obama, it doesn’t matter, the self-evidence truths of our “democracy” always hold true – politicians will always lie to get what they want (Romney perhaps the most glaring example of this in recent American history), and in the end special interests and the moneyed elite control this country, while people like you and me are left with no voice. That is why I don’t understand why you get so involved in this stuff, as if your life will somehow magically change for the better is Obama is defeated in November.

    Shameless. In response to Snoodickle, my life will change for the better if Obama is defeated – nothing magical about it.
