In an email to supporters this morning, the president essentially reminded Americans that he hasn’t forgotten about them. Forget the jet-setting to Hollywood and lavish $40,000 per head fundraiser at the Manhattan home of actress Sarah Jessica Parker; Barack Obama wants to have dinner with you, the common folk. Well, for a price.
That’s right – the man presiding over a painful economic recession is asking jobless Americans to donate to his campaign in order to potentially win a chance to have dinner with him. Talk about the audacity of hope!
“Friend– I’m about to sit down for lunch with a few grassroots supporters who are being flown in from Arizona, Maryland, Michigan, and Ohio,” the email began. “It’ll just be me and these four supporters, with enough time to relax and have a real conversation,” he reassured the reader.
What a guy!
“I’m not going to get to do too many more of these before November. That’s just a fact.” Right, because he’s busy ruining running the country and not campaigning.
But the goods are revealed with a little further reading:
“So if you’d like to be there for one of the last ones, please chip in $3 or whatever you can — and you’ll be automatically entered for that chance: https://donate.barackobama.com/Meet-Me-for-Dinner. Next time, I could be on my way to meet you.”
Be still my heart – Barack Obama wants me!
With unemployment at 8.1 percent nationally and an economic slump that even the president admits has harmed “a lot of Americans,” he has the audacity to ask for donations, simply so Americans can have a conversation with their commander-in-chief.
