Pathetic beyond belief. Just like the scruffy bums on the corner holding their handwritten cardboard signs — “Will work for $3”

How much does a credit card transaction cost the receiver ?

If we were to donate less than that amount, his campaign would lose money on every transaction.

He said, “I need three fity.”

And I said “Get away from me, you damn monster!”

I signed up to get these from his campaign early on and have been a tremendous source of humor. At one point, they were asking people spare a room or two to take in people who where being sent to the area to help setup new offices and train recruiters. Odumbo is desperate.

I’m surprised that Obama is asking for campaign donations. Obama can just steal the money from the US Treasury to finance his campaign — just like he steals money from the taxpayers to finance his and Moochelle’s multi-million dollar vacations to Spain, Hawaii, NYC, Mexico, Aspen etc..

Friend --

Sorry to bug you on a Saturday. The FEC wouldn't let us push back their big March 31st deadline. (I tried.)

Just hours to go -- please chip in $3 or more:

Thanks.

You mean that guy that came down to Crawford, TX and tried to tell us how to deploy the banner we owned?

That feller?

That weasel that tried to order us about in Crawford even though he didn't know us?

So tell me, Jack, what experiences YOU have had with that sucker that gives a favorable impression?

What?

You have none?

Then I guess you should shut the hell up about things you don't know about.

If we were to donate less than that amount,

Surely you don't think that an online credit card pay system would let you 'donate' less than the minimum?

I had a fake Obama bill much like that, only it was for a million “dollars”, and it had “stimulus funds” printed on it. I sent it to the RNC the last time I got a request for a contribution.

Possibly.

But Yankees from Florida do NOT TELL Texans what to do.

Ever, under any circumstances.

Heck, some of us might even carry grudges for a decade.

Amazing how the word “please” wasn’t used once in that cheesy email. Having manners just isn’t cool with the Obama crowd.

This did remind me, though, to make another donation to Newt’s campaign.

Changing the subject here but I need to vent somewhere, this thread is as good as any.

I’m in Wisconsin and we have our primary on Tuesday. I have received at least 30 anti-Santorum, pro-Romney calls in the last few days.

Who do I complain to? I am sick of it!

I also received a push poll today. Pro Romney.

Well, carry on then. One of the main things I remember from that day was the heat wore out our local-based EMT. After the rally, he had to hook himself up with an IV to keep from passing out.

Jean - I'm in WIS too. Been keeping track (helps with my sanity) A call every 15 mins. Almost on the clock! All this past week.
Ya, WHO DO we complain to? I've been picking up and immediately hanging up. At least I don't have to listen to those god-awful calls.

Whenever I get a robo call I immediately place the phone down somewhere and walk away, letting the recording drone on. I figure I may as well waste at least some of their time and maybe help prevent 1 or 2 less robocalls if one of their lines is tied up.

Another tip: Whenever I get a live solicitation call anywhere near dinnertime, I politely say to the caller, "Hey, can you hold on for just a sec...?" I then put the phone down and forget about it until later, when the phone starts making those loud, busy-signal noises.

If you're on a "do not call" list, you may have legal recourse available.

Otherwise.. not so much. If there is a live person on the line some
amusement might be had with them, if you're feeling creative.

“If we were to donate less than that amount, his campaign would lose money on every transaction.”

Back in the days of snail mail, a buddy of mine used to send $0.01 donations to the DNC.

He was proud of the fact that the DNC would spend much more than $0.01 to send him thank you letters, and other assorted propaganda.
