Obama Campaign Wants Your Wedding Gifts

Obama Campaign Wants Your Wedding Gifts

Just when you thought the bar could be lowered no further by President Obama and his supporters, they surprise you.

The Obama campaign, which has been fundraising from every population segment, group and club it can find, is reaching out to newlyweds.

Not in a wholesome, congratulations-on-your-new-wedded-bliss sort of way, but in a money-grubbing, how-dare-you-think-of-yourself-on-your-special-day sort of way.

The Obama camp wants couples getting married to register with their website and ask guests to contribute to the president’s re-election in lieu of gifts. The plea on the site reads:

“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. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.”

OK, time for a little honesty, here. I mean who really believes they’ll get more value out of President Obama than they would a gravy bowl?

Obama’s getting a bit desperate, and who can blame him? Last month, his campaign reportedly spent more than it was able to gather in contributions, while Romney’s been making some sizable gains for his war chest.

But I think that whole self-coronation scene last week when Obama granted amnesty to 800,000-plus illegal immigrants may have gone to the new king’s head.

He followed that up with thumbing his nose at Congress by exerting executive privilege to block the Fast and Furious investigation, now he’s after your wedding gifts.

What is Obama going to demand next, droit-du-signeur — the right of the king to have the first night with a new bride? Maybe tack it on to Obamacare.

Well, Obama’s favorite word is “audacity,” after all.

My advice to couples about to be married, keep the cash for yourself.

Lousie black,
The obnoxious gumption of ome people indeed, like someone who would ask to be put on other people's wedding registries. I guess you think the public should finance some more vacations for Michelle.

sully16,
On the plus side this is an indication of how desperate he is.
