Obama: "Give Me Your Gift." Pathetic

I know a lot of you here think Obama's reelection is a lock. But this goes to show how much he is in trouble. At first, when I heard about this, I thought it was a joke. But no, Obama, on his website, is asking you to donate to his campaign not just giving by giving money yourself, but if you are buying a gift for someone else, like a wedding, birthday, or anniversary, instead of giving that person/persons a gift, you make a donation to Obama in their name instead.

Seriously, how pathetic is that? Wedding gifts are traditionally supposed to help new couples out by giving them things they can't afford at the moment to get their new life going. And Obama asks you not to do that, but give him the money.

I'm sorry, but this shows how (1) Narcissistic he is, (2) Out of touch he is, and (3) how desperate he is for money.

How anyone can defend this utter embarrassing begging for money is beyond me. I've never heard of this before and if someone did it in the past, well then they are on the same level. I don't care who they are.

Obama Campaign: Tell Your Wedding Guests to Send Us Money

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.

Can it get anymore desperate than this?

His campaign managers and close entourage must be nuts to accept to promote this kind of idea!!!!

Oh I can see the comedians and Republicans bashing this big time.

We have so badly twisted the 1st Amendment of Freedom of Speech, most recently with the infamous Citizens United Supreme Court decision, that the greedy need for money is well exceeding good taste and reason. Obama isn't getting any money from 'Wall Street' despite how much he continued to save their sorry asses continuing policies started by President Bush and not going after the criminals who got us in part into our sick economy.

I hope 1000's e-mail get sent to the campaign to say that this idea is just plain wrong, stupid and smells like desperation of the worst kind.

It's for people who'd rather support a cause of theirs than receive yet more material gifts that they hardly need.

I don't know how common it is for one of those causes/campaigns to offer online registration of your event for that purpose, but seeing how money-centred both political campaigns and personal events have become (e.g. online bridal registries) I don't see an issue with this - it's in less bad taste than e.g. attack ads.

Quoting GuitrThree (Thread starter):
how desperate he is for money

His campaign is up against some of the wealthiest ranks of the American Upper Class (e.g. Sheldon Adelson) whose individual donations outclass even much-popularised fundraising dinners. It's an unpleasant, but well-known fact that money swings elections.

Worth noting, Obama's campaign is now spending more money than it's taking in.
After all of his mudslinging against Romney and blaming everyone for all of the nation's problems, I have yet to hear him give us any reason to re-elect him. I have yet to hear of him boast of any accomplishments that his administration has achieved.

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Rom...1/id/443033?s=al&promo_code=F435-1
From the article;
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney surged ahead of President Barack Obama in fundraising for the first time last month — and a senior Obama adviser concedes that Obama will be the first incumbent president to be out-raised by his opponent.

Excuse me, but who's fault is that? Obama in 2008 outspent the McCain by more than 2 to 1, breaking every campaign spending record in history. Can you blame the GOP for rising to the challenge?

And don't feel so sorry about Obama's fundraising. Hollywood alone could provide all the funding he needs. There are a number of Leftist Hollywood types worth as much or more than the Kochs or Adelson, not to mention Soros.

No. Read it again. It's for you - if you would rather people donate to the campaign than give you a gift, you can ask them to, and they can. In no way are they asking you to give money to them instead of gifts to someone else.

3) Is anyone surprised he is desperate for money, the Koch brothers alone might put in $400 million to try and defeat him. Money tends to win elections and Obama won in 2008 largely because he raised more money.

So when Obama outspent McCain 3 to 1 last election that was okay? Some of the well know billionaire supporters are Buffet, Soros, Winfrey, Diller, Eisner, Blank, Tisch, Lear, Pritsker and Geffen. Then toss in the Hollywood elite like George Clooney, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg amongst the many. Then we can add Google chief executive Eric Schmidt , Google co-founder Larry Page, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Financier Ken Griffin, leader of Chicago hedge fund Citadel.

that of the voters, more precisely those swing voters that are swayed by expensive campaign items rather than issues

All the personal appearances, all the TV ads and all the phone calls that are supposed to sway people this or that way have to be paid for. To get noticed between the myriad of other (i.e. commercial) campaigns, a political candidate has to invest loads of money just like McDonald's, Pepsico and Citibank do. For a change to that, you could e.g. allot to each party a given and equal amount of airtime and/or ad space that has to be provided to them for free, barring them from purchasing any more... but I suppose that would be socialism, right?  

Anyway, if swing voters took or perhaps even had the time to ponder the promises of each candidate, those expensive campaigns would soon lose much of their meaning. And if you had fewer Olbermanns and Limbaughs, well... I can dream, can't I?

Quoting ZANL188 (Reply 7):

I don't think anyone could hope to become a senator, let alone run for reelection as President of the US, without being part of some sort of elite. It can be the financial elite (e.g. Romney), educational elite (e.g. Obama) or, as it were, an established elite (e.g. the Kennedy and Bush families). Essentially, you have to be part of some sort of network if you want to have a chance at a high political office.

Quoting windy95 (Reply 9):

That was then, this is now. Obama isn't going up against McCain and his supporters, he's challenged by Romney and his. And as I have just said, the ludicrous expenses for campaigns have never been a good thing.

Well, as long as money in elections is not controlled, this will continue.

Here a presidential campaign must not cost more than 22 millions € per candidate or it's canceled. Somehow the candidates still manage to get their point across, make numerous meetings, travel across the country on a daily basis, in fact by election time people are quite tired of the show. I'm sure the same could be done in the US with, let's say, 200 millions $ per candidate.

Think I recently read that Sheldon had given $10 Million and was prepared to go to $100 Million. I wonder what $100 Million buys you at the White House.  

At the other end of the spectrum, WIllard is having big money fly into Utah on their private jets for afternoon tea. There might be some political discussions and some money pledged, but (of course) there will be great care to keep the campaign independent of the SuperPACs. Which is probably why Carl Rove is there.

Yeah, think about those poor, poor people who Obama is stealing money from.  

'Traditionally' is the key word. Many people nowadays (including myself) have lived by themselves and marry someone who has also lived by themselves, therefore having most things they need (and even duplicates of those things). Charitable donations aren't out of the ordinary, and a donation to a political fund isn't unthinkable.

If I was to tell you that a republican had previously done this then I don't think you'd be so vocal about it.
