Obama Asks You to Give Him Your Friendís Birthday, Anniversary, or Wedding Gifts
Independent Journal Review ^ | June 22, 2012 | Bert Atkinson Jr.

Posted on 06/22/2012 6:57:10 PM PDT by Republican Wildcat

What better way to honor your friend’s special day than to throw money towards a campaign that once promised “Hope” and “Change” that never came? Ugh…

My “friends” need the money more than obama after he’s ruined the U.S. economy.

Lingering white guilt (with pollsters) ... until they get in the privacy of the voting booth and remember the cost of the last can of corn they bought or the cost of gas or the fact they are unemployed.

Why doesn’t Obama ask “Mickey Mouse” and “Donald Duck”. They gave plenty four years ago.

I cannot prove it, but I suspect a whole lotta foreign money was laundered into the Obama campaign in 2008.

Someday the truth will surface.

I don’t think my friends would give those gifts up. Is 0bozo asking that we take them without permission?

How? Why?

Because in the modern world your average voter would rather read the latest box scores or People magazine (if they read at all) than serious political analysis.

Your average individual potential voter today is more unlikely to know who the vice president is, who his federal representative is, who his senators are than they are to know who stars in Two and a Half Men.

The people of this country in general have little interest in politics other than to be sure that their own little benefits are not on the chopping block.

Threaten their share of the pie and the horns come out.

That’s the bottom line.

It’s extremely sad and disgusting.

With them wanting to make voting mandantory, they'll make the donation mandantory on Nov. 6, too. Forced voting but you have to buy the ticket, too.

There's a sucker born every minute, make that second, no make that nanosecond.

I certainly hope that people who keep holding on to their Obama blanket finally realize how threadbare it's becoming.

Every day there is something new, drip - drip - drip.

I never realized that the Beverly Hillbillies that occupy the White House were black .... what a low class bunch. Should we fore-go sending flowers for funerals of loved ones and send money to the Food Stamp President. Or maybe, have Planned Parenthood send $3.00 for each abortion to the Food Stamp President’s re-election campaign. How low can a progressive sink .... they have to look up to whale crap!

I asked my girlfriend if she minded if I did the donation thing instead of a wedding ring.
There was a silence...
a tentative laugh,
and then the gentile clarification of her opinion that can only be rendered by a southern belle.
God bless ‘em....

I agree. This is starting to take on a surreal quality. There is a stench of fear in the air - the smell of impending doom.

Apathy on the part of many voters. I hear all the time, “They are all crooks”, “there is no difference between them”,” I don’t like to talk about politics” “They all cheat” “where is the GOP plan to fix the economy, at least Obama is trying”

You can thank the MSM for that. They’re essentially doing what they did back in ‘08 - ignore anything and everything negative about Obama.

Yes, this is wierd; I’ve never had a black fellow come up to me with an extended palm asking for change.

Obama is done; he bet on the people that have no income at all. I guess they can’t charge donations to their WIC/SNAP cards...

He isn’t honestly polling above 20% anywhere; he has lost every election since his (the most recent being Walker winning by MORE THAN HIS ORIGINAL MARGIN OF VICTORY).

In WISCONSIN.

Nobody I know has ever been polled.

Yes Sir! The people he’s appealing to, who he thinks of as his base, are the dispossessed. No money to begin with.

But more important, Obama supporters are Mooches. They don’t Give. They Take. Everyone else is supposed to to give to them.

Desparate and despicable. The president of the united states, begging for your personal gifts. He has brought the street to 1600 Penn ave. Maybe he should apply for food stamps you know the USDA says it makes you feel and look your best. To all the guilty white folk, keep your guilt to yourself!
