Donate $5.00 now and you may win an all expense paid trip to President-elect Obama's inauguration!
http://my.barackobama.com ^ | 1/2/2009 | my.barackobama.com

Posted on 01/04/2009 7:06:59 PM PST by Maelstorm


Your ticket to history Thanks to you, President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden will take their oaths of office in just 17 days.

You helped shape history, and now you can be a part of it.

Ten supporters and their guests will be selected to come to Washington, D.C. for several days of inaugural events. You could be chosen to fly to Washington, attend the welcome ceremony, the Inaugural parade, the swearing-in, and an official Inaugural ball.

Donate $5 or more now. You could be part of the historic events you made possible.

This inauguration will be open to hundreds of thousands of people. To do that, it takes unprecedented resources.

In the past, inaugurations have been funded by lobbyists and corporations making six-figure contributions. Like our campaign, this inauguration is going to be different. But that means, once again, Barack and Joe need to ask you for your help.

Supporters like you made this possible, and with your help Barack and Joe will run their administration without the influence of big money from Washington lobbyists or special interests. Funding the Inauguration this way is another example of the change you helped bring to Washington.

It's up to you, at this crucial moment, to make the Inauguration a success and give change a strong start.

Make a donation of $5 or more now for the opportunity to join Barack and Joe at the beginning of this historic journey to change our country:

https://donate.pic2009.org/tickettohistory

Thank you for your extraordinary efforts throughout the campaign.

Happy New Year,

Obama for America

P.S. -- You can participate without donating. We recognize this day is as important as it is historic, and we want to hear in your words what this inauguration means to you.

There is just something so low class about this. Is this the publishers clearinghouse Presidency?

If I donate $10, can I win the promise of not having to go?

For just the tiniest of a split second, I thought this was a way Jim Rob was trying to get people to donate to the current FReepathon!!!! [shudders]

Then I realized that wasn’t possible, NO one would donate to the FReepathon if there was the slightest chance of “winning”
(wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more) tickets to the end of America as we know it!!! So I knew in my heart of hearts that FR was safe, LOL.

Whew.

Just donate $5 to the "keep Michelle Obama in designer clothes" fund and you will be entered into a drawing to win this authentic painting of Lincoln, which currently hangs in the White House. Lincoln reminds many people of our beloved Barack

I’ll bet his next big Obamathon will be that if you “donate” 10 bucks, you can go over to Obama’s house and watch the Super Bowl with him and his sidekick, “Rimshot” Joe Biden, the Gabby Hayes of Politics.

By this guy I assume you mean DEAR LEADER. You ain't seen nuttin yet. Buckle up, we are on a very very high roller coaster and it is all down hill. I cannot fathom how it gets stopped. Too many Americans have been hurt dramatically by their 401ks being wiped out and now they not only embrace socialism but are running as fast as they can to see the Messiah bring it to them.

$5.00 for a chance to see zero ... definitely not priceless!

It is just struck me as inappropriate especially with so many having worked so hard and given so much to him already. Asking them to buy tickets to a raffle to see him seems really low.

Everything about the Liberal God is low class, corrupt, sleaze, and enough to make me throw up. I won’t watch that pile of manure on TV, radio, newspaper, magazine, or anywhere else his arrogant face appears. It’s going to be a long four years of media blackout at my house. That human waste has absolutely nothing to say that I care to hear or believe.

For damned sure I will NOT donate. With my luck, I would "win".

Please note that they didn't say anything about "expenses paid"!

Smacks of an old, 1960s, San Francisco radio station (KSFO, IIRC) prank contest:

"First prize, 1 week vacation in Tracy; 2nd prize, 2 week vacation in Tracy!"

Dang Obama still nickel and diming his flock?

I finally got my point across to stop spamming me.

I wrote and wrote to take me off Obama/Kerry/Biden/Clinton spam e mails for money.

Then a few weeks ago ranted here at FR about the non stop give me some money dem spams.

Have not got any spam now for a week.

Ah come on watching the inaug will be fun.

What other televised event can you throw Obama plates around and break them into pieces and those salvation army bargain wine glasses too and not have the family think you have gone bonkers.

We are going to use the event to yell and scream and laugh to relieve some cabin fever.
