This is critical: (Obama campaign email)
Obama Campaign email

Posted on 08/17/2012 11:27:59 AM PDT by matt04

I just got back from Iowa, where we are being outspent 2 to 1 on the air. Voters there mentioned it to me more than once.

We expect Mitt Romney and the Republicans to outspend us.

What I will not abide is getting outspent by a margin that negates all the hard work our volunteers are doing -- talking to voters, knocking on doors, making calls.

We are in control of that outcome, but our time to close the gap is dwindling. After three consecutive months of being significantly outraised, it couldn't be more urgent.

Will you make a donation of $3 or more?

https://donate.barackobama.com/Outspent-in-Iowa

If we win this election, it will be because of what you did.

I don't get to tell you enough how grateful I am.

Thank you,

Barack

P.S. -- In a few weeks, I'll accept our party's nomination for president onstage in Charlotte, North Carolina. I wouldn't be there without you. Any donation you make today automatically enters you and a guest for a chance to join me and Michelle as VIP guests of the convention. Hope to see you there.

A short desperate email yet there were eight times “I” and “me” were used.

“That is so lame. Begging for $3 donations.”

The saying, “phoney as a $3 bill” comes to mind.

“Voters there mentioned it to me more than once.”

That seems completely unlikely.

“What I will not abide is getting outspent by a margin that negates all the hard work our volunteers are doing “

But wasting their grandchildrens money is Okey-Dokey.

Does that mean that Soros won’t be kicking in any dough this time around?

I suspect that, through the magic of Obama, your $3 donation will increase to the legal limit, courtesy of an unknown contributor.
It's your name and address he wants, as a beard for an illegal donation (JMHO)

Gee, in the primaries if you total up the Republican nominees to Obama who ran unopposed for the most part it is quite clear who is spending money this election.

What is the legal limit someone can donate without being known?

I wondered about that as well. Could be, though, that the old bastard is too preoccupied with his upcoming marriage, believe it or not.

The Obama campaign was sending out similar messages (text and e-mail) in 2008. Nothing has changed.

Yesterday, I received an email from Gingrich explaining a contest to attend the GOP convention. Cost? $3.00.

My response was that this tactic is a tacky as Obama’s.

Not lame enough. When I see the SOB living in a box under a bridge and standing at an intersection in 100 degree heat with 90% humidity begging for food I MAY BEGIN to feel good.

Until then I can dream and HOPE he’ll beg for CHANGE.

Eff him.
