    Obama campaign suggests political donation as perfect wedding gift



    Getting married? President Barack Obama's re-election campaign has the perfect wedding gift in mind.

    The campaign has started an "Obama event registry" to let engaged fans of the president ask friends and family for donations to his re-election bid instead of presents.

    "Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?" the site asks. "Let your friends know how important this election is to you -- register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift.

    "It's a great way to support the President on your big day," it continues. "Plus, it's a gift that we can all appreciate -- and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl."

    When signing up, supporters are asked to set a monetary goal. The site also provides some suggested language to use when hitting up friends and relatives for campaign cash.

    "For my big day, I'd like to show my support for a cause I believe in -- re-electing President Obama," it reads. "That's why I'm asking my friends and family to donate to the Obama campaign. Thanks for chipping in!"

    Obama has been raising money at a furious clip to keep pace with his rival Mitt Romney and the Republican Party.

    I hardly ever make any kind of political statement but this is so f'n dumb. I mean it's come to this? Almost begging people to give you money? How big is Barry's warchest? Does he really need to go here with all the celebrities that are on the dems side? I'm sure they're all giving him something. Didn't Bill Maher (sp, don't care to look it up cause he's a jack ass) just give him a cool million?

    I'm so sick of hearing about campaign financing. Shouldn't be about money, should be about what you can do for the country. Probably started to get real bad with the Clintons, but it's permeated all parties and all levels. And all for what, buying as many trixters as you can?

    Why the crap would someone want their wedding cursed with an Obama donation? So they won't be expected to fulfill any of their promises or expectations?

    This would neeeeeeveeeeeer be on my bridal registry.

    There was a time when people really wanted to make a difference and right the wrongs in our society. Politics is a noble profession when done with sincerity. Today's politicians have turned it into a cash cow to enhance their personal lives, NOTHING more. They run for office to feed at the public trough for as long as they can to accumulate wealth. They are taken care of by the taxpayer for the rest of their lives, with generous retirement packages that we the people can only dream about.

    Candidates that come from a business background, like to always run for office too, because it's not good enough that they've run a successful company if nobody knows who you are. It's all about ego and fame nowadays and NOT about service. Look how hard it is to get these jackasses to leave-It's like crack and they just can't get enough and we sit idly by and keep these people in their positions year after year. It always the same thing: Run for City council; Congress; Govenor or Senator; President. Along the way they're just racking up pay, benefits, perks, and comfortable pensions. I don't know how you would do it but I think we should find a way to make politics less lucrative to weed out career politicians and to get genuine candidates who REALLY want to serve their country. Rant over.

    It is what it is

    I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said

    I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.

    I have a friend who is a lib and voted for O'biden last time. She is getting married in September so as a joke I posted a link to the webpage for the O'biden registry on her facebook page. Funny thing is when I posted the link the text that appeared with it said,
    "Instead of a gift card you know I'll just forget to spend, Give to Obama 2012 for my big day.Just visit my donation page, no wrapping paper or ribbon required"

    Makes it sound as if this is really what she wants.
