Michelle: Send Barack Father’s Day Wishes, Cash

Posted by   + Show Post

 

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.

Tacky and sad, people who need the money will give him a check. Save the money for food for your kids.

 Yeah, the Obama fund raising place sent me the same email about his wife before mothers day.

It said my wife is wonderful with our daughters.  Please sign a mothers day card for Michelle; it would mean so much to me.

Then, it went to a page where you give money to his campaign, and no link to sign a card.

Yeah, and in the same breath, Obeyme is going to $40,000 a plate fundraisers, thrown by Hollywood's weirdoes. I wouldn't send him a plug nickel.

Just wanted to let you know that because of this thread, my family has sent the Obama Campain a check for $200. I know that wasn't what you were going for but oh well.

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

Yes, RR, it is a more noble cause.  Obama has plenty of Obama cash from his campaign stash.  No need to throw one's money out the window for someone who has less than 7 months in office.

I got an email from Ann Romney the other day asking for $5. When I get off mobile, I'll post it.

Gosh, you'd think that fundraising was important in a presidential campaign or something...

 They all do it.  Here is the one I was talking about:

Mitt

Friend,

Every day, Mitt and I get to meet incredible Americans, hear touching personal stories, and see this country's beauty. We feel so lucky.

If you could spend just a day on the campaign trail, you would see why all of this is so rewarding -- and so important.

So here's your chance to see for yourself. Two supporters like you will get the chance to join Mitt on the campaign bus and spend a day with him on the trail.

Donate $5 today to be automatically entered for the chance to join Mitt for a day on the road.

Best of luck,

Ann Romney

The Romney's need 5 dollars? What to tip Jesus?

 I thought is was a strange amount too.  I get that it's a raffle and so people aren't going to be willing to donate quite as much if it was a sure thing that they would get to meet him, but even still, $5 seems awfully low.
