Michelle: Send Barack Father’s Day Wishes, Cash

This weekend is Father’s Day. That means it’s time to give President Obama a hug – and a check, at least according to Michelle Obama.

Today, the Obama campaign sent out a missive from the First Lady to the general public. The header: “Will you wish Barack a happy Father’s Day?”

Apparently, it never occurred to the Obama campaign that the president is not our father. Nonetheless, Michelle wrote this:

Benjamin --

From coaching basketball to knowing how many Jonas brothers there are, Barack is a pretty cool dad.

But more importantly, Barack is a wonderful father and partner. No matter what's on his plate, he puts the kids first, and they know how much he loves them.

This Father's Day, I want Barack to know how much we love and appreciate him back, so I hope you'll join me in wishing him a happy Father's Day:

http: // my. barackobama. com / Fathers-Day

Thanks for all your hard work, and happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there."

-- Michelle

Obama is now trading on his personal popularity alone. Why does it matter that Obama knows the Jonas brothers? Why is it important to Americans that he coaches basketball? Nobody has challenged Obama’s credentials as a father or a husband, yet Michelle still feels we must be informed that Obama is a great daddy and puts his kids first.

So we’re all supposed to join Michelle in wishing Barack a happy Father’s Day.

Or, rather, we’re supposed to send him money.

Because when you click on the above link, you’re taken to a page asking for your contact information. When you give it, you’re immediately linked through to a contribution form asking for cash.

It’s one thing to ask us for Father’s Day wishes. It’s another to ask for a Father’s Day present. Americans all have fathers of their own. They don’t need to be given a surrogate dad by the Obama campaign – and they certainly don’t need to be burdened with giving a Father’s Day political contribution to their non-father based on the fact that he’s nice to his kids and wife.

Wow. That woman has some guts. Not many brains, or one ounce of class or dignity or respect, but TONS of guts! And, I don't mean that in a complimentary way, either.

Quick question on the pic--before it was taken, did anyone think to look around for Bo, the non-existent dog, to be sure Obeyme wasn't cooking his "specialty?" ;-)

That is how stupid his people are, they don't even think that him in a barbecue apron, might be a bad idea.

I'd rather send my money to a more noble cause, like The Wounded Warrior Project.
