    UnFuckingBelievable. Tacky just doesn’t cover it.

  3. jeffhas says:

    The comments on his own website are priceless! – thank YOU!!!!

    • DandyTiger says:

      Wow, those comments are something. I assume they’ll be wiped soon, so go read soon. Priceless.

      • myiq2xu says:

        Not one positive comment

      • jeffhas says:

        Please get screenshots – this is too funny – this MUST go viral – WMCB where are your tweets?!

        • WMCB says:

          There is an #ObamaFundraisingIdeas hashtag trending now on twitter. It’s freaking hilarious.

      • Erin says:

        The purdge has begun. Lots of deleted comments there now. It’s not completely whiped cleant but for example Lola responded to comment with this

        “Wouldn’t it be nice if Malia had to give them up because Chelsea Clinton was running? The burn….”

        The original comment she responded to had been deleted.

    Wasn’t there an article that they are spending more than they are getting in? Then there was the Hollywood Reporter article indicating they are tired of only seeing him with his hand out. Unions told him no more and I bet they have hit up every donor and are getting “Things are so bad I am busted” routinely. So to come up with a scheme to get the money that people “give” away is a clear indicator that the well has run dry. He’s fucked.

  5. HELENK says:

    these are the most grasping people I have ever seen. They would take the pennies from a dead man’s eyes.

    If they start visiting New Orleans and the above ground burial sites , Worry

    HEY LIBS,,,,,, Did Valery Jarrett make her daughter give up all the gifts at her wedding last week ?

    And this one:

    naturesid • 42 minutes ago
    Desperate, classless AND tasteless. Grats on the three-fer.

    Oh so many good ones. This one kind of sums it up:

    Unmitigated, selfish, narcissistic gall!

  8. HELENK says:

    backtrack and meeeschele

  9. Lulu says:

    This comment from WZ is very disturbing. I did not know this.
    “I am old enough to remember Benito Mussolini – another Fascist – who asked women in Italy to donate their wedding rings for his party’s support. History really does repeat itself!”

  10. DeniseVB says:

    Sidebar: I’m cracking myself up today:

    And Lulu, yes, I posted an article the other day, I think it was Bloomberg, who linked to the FEC, Team Bam is blowing through donations. Probably why Michelle is getting “emotional” at her fundraisers and “he’s your husband too” emails. Dang. I may just vote for Obama to make her stop crying 😦 Nah.

  11. DandyTiger says:

    More popcorn. This is going to be the best election evah.

  12. jeffhas says:

    So, if I wanted to register an ‘Event’ – I can request that all my friends donate to Obama as my gift(s).

    Too Classy.

    I swear this Epic Fail is becoming so Monumental, we might have to build an actual Monument (like we do to celebrate heroic Presidents) to remind us to never do this again.

    There has got to be a site worthy of honoring this President.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Siting on a chair with a dunce cap, facing the wall. At some site already known as some failed public project. Maybe start a new twitter hashtag trending topic for this.

    • Lulu says:

      Darwin Awards? Oh, you mean real estate. La Brea tarpits? Llano Estacado? A salt dome?

      • jeffhas says:

        I like La Brea Tarpits – but we will be called r*cists for putting a monument of The First Black President in a Tar Pit. Oh wait, we’ll be called r*cists no matter where we put this monument… Oh, wait again – we’ve already been called r*cists.

    • HELENK says:

      rename detroit

  13. HELENK says:

    sorry to ruin the fun for a minute but I though you would like to see this

    holder’s letter to backtrack requesting him to invoke executive privilige

  14. SophieCT says:

    Why doesn’t he sell Executive Order Indulgences.

    Heck, I’d even donate if he eliminated indefinite detention, closed Guantanamo, required GMO labeling, killed the Patriot Act, enacted single payer, ended DOMA, stopped warrant-less wiretapping, etc..

  16. Karma says:

    No really…we’ve collected silverware at previous events…

    • Karma says:

      Regalado hurried the diners to finish up their salads and pre-cut chicken breasts, saying that the Secret Service required that there be no knives at the tables and that the forks be rounded up before Obama entered the room.

      “As you know, we’re having another speaker and there is some Secret Service involved. So there’s a reason why there’s no knives at your table and the forks will be collected…..And I’m not joking,” Regalado told the audience in a ballroom at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World. “So, like the good Hispanic mother I’m here to tell you to please, eat your lunch.”

      A Secret Service spokesman confirmed that the agency made the request, but said such requirements are common at large events where the president speaks at about the same time people are dining.

      “The Secret Service coordinates this process with staff and host committee to ensure tables are cleared of material that may be deemed hazardous prior to the arrival of the president,” Special Agent Max Milien told POLITICO.

      In other words, the announcement at the Latino officials’ event may have been unusual, but the removal of the silverware usually takes place without anyone realizing it’s a security measure.

      Still, there are a wide variety of breakfasts, lunches and dinners the president attends where diners still have the full complement of silverware was Obama speaks.

      • WMCB says:

        So if they leave the forks at some events, but collected them at this one, isn’t that…..racist?

        Look out for them hispanics, dude. They will CUTchoo!!!!!

      • Erica says:

        Next thing you know, they’ll be making people take off their shoes….cuz it’s only funny if someone decks president Bush with a shoe….

    • Lola-at-Large says:

      First comment was priceless, and earned 229 likes on FB so far:

      He didn’t want anyone to stick a fork in him. Cuz he’s done!

      Freakin’ hilarious.

    Doug Powers:

    I think they borrowed this general idea from Dennis Kucinich, whose main fundraising tactic when he ran for president was to go from table to table at wedding receptions and say “You gonna finish that sandwich?”

    • WTF? She is underexposed? I am sick to death of reading about her horrible clothes, her vacations, her begging for bawack etc. Oh wait-
      I get it now. She found a way to get in ANOTHER foreign vacation at taxpayer expense.

  18. Oswald says:

    You can’t make this shit up:

    Once registered an event page explains to potential party attendees why Obama is somehow a part of the upcoming birthday, bar mitzvah or block party.

    “For my big day, I’d like to show my support for a cause I believe in — re-electing President Obama,” the default event page explains. “That’s why I’m asking my friends and family to donate to the Obama campaign. Thanks for chipping in!”

    According to an event confirmation email, the money raised from the registry will help finance campaign organizers and volunteers.

    “Thank you for showing your support, and asking your friends and family to give to this campaign,” Obama campaign deputy manager Julianna Smoot’s form letter read. “By requesting a donation in lieu of a typical gift, you’re helping make sure Obama 2012 organizers and volunteers have the clipboards, pamphlets, and gas money they need to get the word out about the choice we have to make in November. And you’re saving your guests the hassle of curling a ribbon or guessing your size.”

      Shows how Obama sees even the smallest of efforts: saves your guests the hassle of curling a ribbon.

      If only he had known in 2008 what a hassle being president would be—could have saved us all from this purgatory!

    • HELENK says:

      backtrack gets you all the time. with him there is never a free lunch but he does make it sound like you are getting one

  19. Lola-at-Large says:

    OT: Suspended Politico report Joseph “jdub321” Williams has locked down his Twitter so he can slur Romney in privacy. Hilarious!

    • Lulu says:

      It wasn’t Romney stuff that was so bad, it was his obscene tweets about Mrs Romney that got him. He has also claimed it was hacked but he has had a “thing” about Mrs Romney for a while and only noticed the hacking today. For some reason he thought he could make statements about Mrs Romney like was done about Hillary and Sarah. He doesn’t understand that she isn’t running for anything.

  20. HELENK says:

    this woman needs to see a doctor. some of the outlandish statements she is making seem like she is demented

    • She is out of her frigging mind. She seems to have forgotten that third branch of the government that is charged with deciding if something is Constitutional or not.
      So how many have now told Obama to disregard the Constitution and seize power? Jackson’s kid, Clyburn and now Nancy.
      These people are starting to frighten me.

    • Erica says:

      He can call it whatever he wants, doesn’t make it magically disappear.

      Hey, where’s my unicorn?

      I suspected as much. 😦

    Gateway Pundit:

    In 2008 Barack Obama admitted that he and his wife do not give birthday presents to their two daughters, Malia and Sasha.
    The Telegraph reported:

    In a magazine interview Obama and his wife Michelle revealed that one of their steadfast house rules is not giving Christmas or birthday presents to Malia, 10, and Sasha, seven.

    The couple explained that they spend “hundreds” on birthday slumber parties and want to “teach some limits”. Santa Claus is still permitted to deliver seasonal gifts however.

    The girls are also given an allowance of just $1 (50p) a week for performing household chores, according to People magazine. Those chores include making their own bed, setting and clearing the dinner table and putting themselves to bed by 8.30pm.

    But he wants yours…
