Posted on 01/04/2009 7:06:59 PM PST by Maelstorm
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:
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.
SELLING INFLUENCE, are we???
If I donate $10, can I win the promise of not having to go?
Can’t do, I need the 5 bucks..low on toilet paper.
I’d rather by a McDonald’s combo meal then go to that inauguration. I think on January 20th I’m going to the mall. I cant stomach that crap all day
I would rather attend the “opening of the first inflow valve” ceremony at the new sewage treatment plant.
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.
Wow, the first Presidential Lottery. He knows his constituency well.
“I would rather attend the opening of the first inflow valve ceremony at the new sewage treatment plant”
Sort of the same thing is going to happen Jan.20th, only on a massive scale.
But put toilet paper and what usually goes on it together and that's what I'd love to donate...
And like, why would I want that? Can I have a root canal instead, please?
I thought this was a joke. This guy’s for real?
Dr. Pepper really hurts through the nose, but the laugh was worth it.
I’ll pass normally I have taken off the day the Prez gets in office but this time I plan on working and not even listening to a bit of news. I will offer the same respect they did to G.W. Bush however, I will be silent.
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.
If I donated 10 dollars can I get a cabinet appt
Me too (yesterday).
Better spent on cancer research or Alzheimer and the like.
$5.00 for a chance to see zero ... definitely not priceless!
They are what they are. They can't help it.
Sorry, I have a very important appointment that day to take a complete audit of each and every nose hair in my nostrils.
Yeah I suppose but I’ve never had this kind of email before from any campaign. I’ve seen this tactic repeatedly from both Hillary and Obama. Selling access like a sweepstakes.
Hillary and Bill already did that one. lol
You know it seems strange that with close to a billion dollars spent on getting Obama elected no one is asking that question.
Good! I need to donate more myself. (to Freerepublic)
I doubt there is any influence involved just Obama’s affluence.
Thanks for posting it, so we can all see what they are!
Okay, give me $5 and I promise not to go.
**Id rather by a McDonalds combo meal then go to that inauguration. I think on January 20th Im going to the mall. I cant stomach that crap all day**
If you live in NY, as I DO... I”m gonna spend that whole day at MCD’s, BK, and/or Wendy’s, cuz my beloved NANNY errr Governor is pushing for the FAT TAX...
THEY TAXED TOBACCO. I don’t smoke, so I said nothing ...
Save the five dollars to buy the book of Barack Obama cutout dolls in Border’s. It also has a Michelle figurine in her wedding dress.
sort of like an inertia package
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.
I agree completely! They are what they are...
Grand prize; You don’t hafta go, no way.
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.
Another one of his scams. Just like the lottery. Never see your money again.
I would not pay one red cent to see this imposter take the oath to an office most of us think he is not entitled to hold. Not interested in any of thos coins they hawk on tv either.
I mean, can you believe, this jerkoff wants more money from the people who our government including him just sent down the toilet?
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.
I had the same split second thought.
Wow now that is BAD.
I think any and all Freepers that do attend should all wear snuggies. snort chuckle
