OBAMA WANTS YOUR WEDDING AND BIRTHDAY GIFTS. IS THIS DESPERATION OR JUST A CRASS LACK OF CLASS?

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.

Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy—so get started today.

Register with Obama 2012

**********************************

So reads the Obama Event Registry on the campaign’s Obama – Biden Blog.

If it is an act of desperation it is excusable.  Soliciting your supporters wedding and birthday gifts is distasteful and embarrassing but it is also open and honest.  If you are losing a fight for your political life some honest but unusual measures can be acceptable.

The rub comes in if it’s not a desperation move but just another way to get a few more bucks from your constituents.  Then it’s just plain shameless.  I call upon Barack to give up his golf and donate the greens fees, and upon Michelle to buy one less thousand dollar dress and donate the money to the cause.

And let’s suppose, just suppose the Obama kids got birthday gifts.  Wouldn’t  that be a scandal now.
