The Obama Administration has announced today that they would like for YOU to donate to the Obama Election Campaign in lieu of wedding gifts! Yes, that’s right! Have your guests sign up for the Barack Obama Registry – wait, what?? I thought for sure this had to be a big fat joke, but as it turns out, this is actually a real proposal, but more importantly, a supreme sign of desperation.
Here’s how it reads:
Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?
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. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.
Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy—so get started today.
So, after donating your hard earned money to this Administration via wasted and unnecessary tax dollars every year, let this be just one more insult to injury. Now you can contribute to the millions of dollars that go towards campaigning, too!
I don’t often offer commentary on my blog about political matters, but since this particular issue has to do with weddings, I felt inclined to remind the President that not everything in this world revolves around him. His narcissism is simply unimaginable to me at times, and the thought that your wedding guests should help support any political candidate is simple beyond the pale.
If you are a bride, please remember, this is your wedding day! If you are a groom, please remember, this is the bride’s wedding day! *Giggle.
The fact that this President even suggests donating to his empty-headed cause in place of a gift for the new couple is shocking, appalling, and shows a real lack of respect towards hard working Americans on the part of the presidential campaign.
