No, this blog post is not about convicted pedophile and child rapist Jerry Sandusky, who will thankfully rot in a prison cell for the rest of his life.
Yesterday, an even creepier occurrence happened. While some people simply mocked what they saw, and with good reason, thinking about it is more than enough to really peg the creepy meter.
What was it?
It was the suggestion from the Obama campaign that people who are getting married, having birthdays or almost any other major event, tell their loved ones to send contributions to his reelection campaign in lieu of a gift.
That’s right, the Obama reelection team has put together an Obama event page where people can register and get their family and friends to send contributions to his campaign instead of purchasing wedding gifts for newlywed couples and newborn babies.
What kind of narcissistic nut tells people to tell their wedding guests to give the money they would spend on them, on him instead?
What is next? Preprinted text for funeral announcements that says, “In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to the Obama ego fund? Oops, I mean the Obama reelection fund.”
Will this work, despite the derision that has followed it online?
What does it say about someone who thinks that asking people to forego the gifts from major milestones in their life, just for him?
Somehow the words “Dear Leader” come to mind.
We conservatives joke about Obama being a narcissist, but really. Would George Bush have asked for something like that? How about Bill Clinton? Or Ronald Reagan?
Jokes aside, those under thirty should be really offended by Obama’s narcissism. Wedding gifts are mostly given for those who are under 30 who are getting married for the first time. These are the people who have been hit the hardest by the Great Obama Depression. One half of college graduates do not have jobs. Compare that to 2006, when 90% of college graduates had jobs.
Many young people are not going to be able to start their lives together because they simply cannot afford it. They are still living with their parents because thanks to the Great Obama Depression, they cannot find jobs.
Thanks to Obama’s Party of Treason and the policies they perused, many of these young people, even if they have jobs cannot go after the American dream of home ownership for years, perhaps not ever.
Does Obama really expect people to give their wedding gifts to him?
For what purpose? So he can be reelected and have more expensive vacations? Should a newlywed give up their wedding presents so Obama can play another round of golf? Should someone forego their anniversary presents so Obama can blame Bush for his failures again?
Why don’t we start a new registry for Obama? That is the moving back to Chicago registry. Contribute to helping Obama move back to Chicago in January.
That registry can be found at MittRomney.com.
Does anyone else relish the image of Obama hiding in a spider hole, ala Sadam Hussein? Two Husseins in a hole in the ground are better than one!
I dunno Jacki.......my dream was always seeing the Obama family in line at the welfare office...or maybe Barry asking me if I would like a hot apple pie with my burger and fries.
OWS IS the Democrat Party of the 21st century, NOT the future!!!
I am so stuned right now that my jaw is STILL Dropped. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!! I know that they are DESPERATE but WOW...how low can you go??!! What a slimy weasel! What a JERK and a freak and anyone who actually does this, is as bas as he is! WOW....just WOW!!
dear leader and his spouse could be the model for the TV show . . Bridezilla . . . never seen it (never want to), but heard it was about difficult females and their hen-pecked future spouse.
Could this be a reason for record setting vacations costs, separate aircraft, White House galas and other cash incineration.
I heard that Bubba may be Sandusky's bunk mate . . . child rapist have a bleak future in prison . . . . but he deserves it.
Wasn't it the Emporer Justinian who forced well-heeled citizens of his empire to name him in their wills? Is that going to be Obama's next move? In lieu of the onerous death tax we now have, replace it with a pro forma provision in the will declaring him to be the automatic beneficiary? They finally got rid of the Black (no racial epithet here) Plague by killing the rats. I'm not advocating an act of violence against the President. I am advocating freedom from this "Dear Leader" and his minions by sending them all packing in November.
Thanks Larry for the idea!
Indeed Emperor Justinian also codified The Public Trust Doctrine, which sought to protect the public’s rights to access certain resources, such as navigable bodies of water and so on. .This ultimately leads to the EPA controls, sustainability summit, and things like The Law of the Sea Treaty, now before the Senate.
A two thousand year old half-baked idea coming to fruition in our time! Tying such up historically can be fun, can't it? (Wish it held off for another thousand years or so.)
To borrow a line from Ronnie Reagan......."Obama, you are NO Thomas Jefferson!"
Right now He is just asking, should he steal this election He will be demanding and then the cries will be drowned out by the laughter of socialist and communist around the world. We don't deserve this country for what we have allowed to happen to it. No more tears here but it still worries me to death that we will continue the path that has been set forth. America, the lost shining light on the hill. Until the government fears we the people we have to continue to vote them all out and stop the politically correct crap. A terrorist is a terrorist whether he is a Muslim, Christian or Athiest and we have to stop tiptoeing around the facts. We don't have to punish those that hate us all we have to do is stop rewarding and supporting them and they will kill themselves off. Stop the madness and vote them all out....God Bless and keep our military men and women safe.
Thumbs up, Jimmy!!
And the hits just keep on coming:
Definition: pathocracy (n). A system of government created by a small pathological minority that takes control over a society of normal people.
Pathocrats and kleptocrats fit and function symbiotically to form a no-ethics statist totalitarian regime.
Perhaps this is simply another one of the many White House leaks/gaffes, revealed before it was supposed to be, which foretells of his plan to tax all gifts and registries, the thinking being that you may as well just cough it up before you bother giving it and send it on in to him ANYWAY.
