I really cannot get my mind around this…
Admittedly, Obama campers are surprised that Mittens and his attendant superpacs are making the money race competitive. They’ve only themselves to blame for this. Anyone who’s been awake for the last 30 years knows the GOP almost always collects boatloads of cash. The SCOTUS decision to unleash the gazillionaires is not longer news. I remember the DNC needing a telethon to stay afloat? It wasn’t that long ago.
Even with all that in mind, it’s not like Obama is being lapped in fundraising. He’s doing just fine. So why this new, and shockingly tacky, appeal for the long green? Does Obama know the billionaires are going to drop cash firebombs on his campaign come the Fall? Perhaps. Is it just greed? Maybe. The most likely explanation for this obnoxious appeal is the insular nature of the Obama campaign. Some internal group of Barry’s groupthinkers decided this was a great idea!
If I was 10 and my parents said to me “Johnny, you won’t get the bike you wanted this year but don’t fret we sent money to Obama instead!“ I’d run away and join the circus.
This latest cash appeal is a fine example of ObamaCultThinking at its tackiest. Your birthday, wedding, graduation, anniversary is less important than Obama. Understand this: They truly and deeply believe this is a fine idea. That’s why no one in the room where appeals like this are decided on chimed in to say, “That’s probably not a good idea.” No one in that room comprehends how obnoxious this is. To them everyone on earth must feel the same way about Obama that they do. If they don’t, they’re stupid and unworthy.
Even the snide crack about a gravy bowl is appalling. Has your best friend finally found the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with? Well, whatever you choose to commemorate this life changing, joyous event – your gift – is nothing more than…a gravy bowl. Is your daughter valedictorian of her graduating class? Show her how proud you are…by giving to a politician. That new computer you were saving for to give her a leg up in college…it’s just a gravy bowl relative to the importance of Obama’s re-election.
The blind arrogance is mind numbing.
