How arrogant must you be to think young couples will ask their wedding guests to donate to the Obama presidential campaign rather than gift the bride and groom? Answer: you need only be as arrogant as Barack Obama, who lives in luxury at the expense of taxpayers and sends his wife to Spain for vacation, costing taxpayers $476,585, where she wore an off-the-shoulder blouse for the cameras as she made her way through the streets of Madrid. That’s the First Lady of the United States, almost-strapless in Spain, taking a full floor of a 5-Star Hotel, and she wants your wedding gifts to pay for another four years for her family in the White House. Barack wants it too. Michelle should be mortified!
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!” Source: Fox News
So yes, my gripe about showing shoulders in Spain is petty, especially when compared to the extraordinary spending habits of the First Couple, but it’s a small glimpse of who they are – and they want your gravy bowl. View the Most Arrogant Man in the World.
