Dems: Donate now and win a trip to meet Obama!
Washington Examiner ^ | 10/11/2010 | Byron York

Posted on 10/12/2010 6:43:06 AM PDT by PDMiller

Organizing for America, the permanent incarnation of the Obama presidential campaign, has a new offer to its members: send money now and be automatically registered for a chance to win a trip to meet Barack Obama.

It will happen October 22, when Obama appears at a rally for faltering Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Las Vegas. "The president will be kicking off the final push at a grassroots rally," an Organizing for America email says. "We're saving three backstage passes for supporters like you."

“Are they throwing in a set of Ginsu knives?”

Are they throwing him into the bottom of a lake?

They actually think more than three people will donate money to Reid?

Isn’t an entrance into a lottery [contest] a violation of Federal election law?

Read the fine print of the email, and you'll see -- at the bottom, just like a contest on the back of a box or a six pack of soft drinks -- "No purchase or contribution necessary to enter. Void where prohibited."

I see an opportunity to FReep.

If I enter, without a “purchase” {snort}, and some how end up “winning” {snort}... Do I have the option of not going? I’ve been terribly busy lately you see. You know, working over time to support not only my family but a couple of welfare-fed homosexual drug addicts and providing free medical care for that nice illegal family up from Oaxaca...

Isn't that a little like playing the slot machine that says "Out Of Order"?

What?? You don’t want to meet the genius who’s made all that possible?!?! Think of all the different ways you could thank him — in person!

Wouldn’t the “prize” be taxable as income? Donate and pay taxes. What a deal! Wonder if they would do better if they said everyone’s name was in the hopper and you had to pay to NOT play? Make a donation in order to become ineligible.

I just signed up for sh*&s and giggles. From the sign up page:

Thanks for entering -- now spread the word. You have been automatically entered to win a trip to meet President Obama backstage in Las Vegas. With your help, we're executing the most ambitious grassroots program ever run in an election like this -- reaching out to the voters who will make a critical difference in these final weeks. We can't afford to go back to the failed policies of the past (where's the part about the slurpee and the ditch?)-- but it's going to take all of us to keep moving America forward. Will you take a moment and invite five friends to register for the chance to meet President Obama? You can even use our contact importer. Don't worry -- we don't hold on to any of the addresses you use. (right, I seem to remember an issue with this a while back)

Where are the hundreds of millions of TAX PAYER dollars Hussein way-layed and sent to big labor supporters across the country? Won’t any of that go to Reid?? Or is that cash being saved for 2012??!!

I might consider donating if winning first prize meant I never had to see, hear, hear about, or think about Obama ever again.

Just got the rules and regs email:

Sponsor may, at its option, conduct a background check on each potential winner. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any person from receiving any prize based on such background check if Sponsor determines, in its sole discretion that awarding any prize to such potential winner could result in a safety or security risk to any person or persons or could result in the disruption of any event associated with the Promotion

I'm guessing my Oath Keepers membership might be problematic.

You can take that to the bank.

The progressives think you guys are the second coming of the Waffen SS.

They really are silly shiites.
