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 Breitbart.com. 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 barackobama.com.
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.
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?
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.
