Skip to comments.Obama wedding registry fund-raising strategy not a hit with brides (a total flop)
Posted on 07/16/2012 7:03:40 AM PDT by Zakeet
President Obamas bizarre marriage-theme fund-raising scheme where he asks couples to request campaign donations from their guests in lieu of wedding gifts has been a total flop.
The desperate initiative, dubbed the Event Registry, is being mocked by event planners and couples and shows how desperate the Obama campaign is to keep up with GOP contender Mitt Romneys fund-raising.
Campaign officials launched the initiative in late June, the same month Obama raised just $71 million compared to Romneys $100 million.
So far, the Event Registry has been all but ignored on social-media sites even though Facebook, Twitter and other networks have been a strong suit for the Obama campaign.

Who could of known that you Freepers, among many others, would be so stingy?
I am willing to contribute.
Just reroute my sewer lines to the White House (of felons) and (I promise to make hourly donations),
What happens when a bungh of youngsters are given the keys. Remember the seal “Office of the President-elect’?, then Fight the Smears and of course, Attack Waaatch? THe bridal registry is just the latest disaster for them. I say, let them waste their money on such crap.
Any FReepers still trying to decide what wedding gift to get Barney Frank? How about sending him a card stating that ‘In lieu of a gift, a donation has been made in your name to the Romney Campaign.”
Insider Information Alert....
In light of the success of Register with Obama 2012 a new campaign will begin immediately.
Instead of Burying your recently deceased loved one, donate the body to the Obama Campaign so the organs can be harvested for sale to Third world nations, and the gold in the teeth can be converted to much needed campaign cash.
After the body has been respectfully processed for money by our team the donor will be allowed to reclaim remaining parts of the corps(sic).
Note...You must provide your own quart size zip lock bag or Tupperware container.
You are an utter genius.
Hey, Obama, there can only be ONE prima donna bridezilla per wedding....
When I first saw this atrocity appear, I called it to The Bride’s attention. In a spontaneous moment, we flipped off the monitor together.
of course it flopped. it was spectacularly self centered. it is the equivalent of “give me your wedding present!”
only the well and truly hypnotized would fall for this one.
ha ha ha ha!
I SWEAR, if I personally knew a liberal couple of Obamatrons who were about to tie the knot, I would send them a card with a receipt indicating I had donated to the Obama campaign in their honor, just to see their reaction.
However, I would not REALLY give one thin dime to the O campaign and would probably give the couple a REAL gift on their wedding day, (depending on how nasty I was treated for the Obama donation.)
Obamas Super-PAC Advantage
So far, Obamas super PAC is outspending all super-PAC efforts opposing him combined.
WSJ: Unions contribute four times what FEC disclosures show
Give them a Bible and “The Case for Faith” on dvd.
As of July 2nd, the Obama campaign and affiliates has raised $471,400,000. The Romney campaign comes in at $264,223,126. Yet if major labor union promises are fulfilled, President Obama will be the main beneficiary of the more than $400 million labor leaders have promised to spend electing Democrats in 2012.
If only 15 percent of that money is directed towards Obamas campaign, that pushes his above total over $530 million, giving him a 2-1 spending edge over Romney. Thus, President Obamas lament that he cannot win if he is being outspent” is revealed to be utterly disingenuous.

He’s running that “Romney Bain Outsourced Jobs” lying ad of his all weekend on cable. I think I even saw it during yesterday’s NASCAR race on TNT.
id be curious to find out how many people were stupid enough to contribute
Make your wedding, the most special day of your life about this South side Chicago thug masquerading as an intellectual and pretending to care.
50% of our populace is brain dead--drowned in the years of brain washing by govt. schools and media. If they had two brain cells to rub together, they would see thru the lies and blue smoke.
Give Blood For Bammy's Campaign.
Professional moochers seeking the next handout. The communities of illiterates he organized will undoubtedly send him more.
Heh heh heh....
Good to see you, Sarge!
My daughter and son-in-law are going to a Kennedy wedding next month. I guarantee you the guests are not going to give their gifts to Obama.
Since that didn’t work, they’re switching to funerals.
