President Smarmy

One thing I’ve tried to stay consistent on over the years is the demonstrated respect (both in words and actions) one should exhibit for the position of the presidency. As citizens of a free society we can complain, criticize, and critique our leaders, and when they come up wanting, to summarily ride them out of town on a rail. The position itself does demand a certain level of respect and honor, one thing (among many) those leftist loons kept forgetting with the last guy.

But our respect turns into a Gordian knot when one so shameless forgets decorum and turns the White House into a used car lot. Hence we have his latest foray into prostituting the office:

Register with Obama 2012
Got a special milestone or event coming up?

Instead of another gift card you’ll forget to use, ask your friends and family for something that will go a little further: a donation to Obama for America. Register your next celebration—whether it’s a birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, wedding, or anniversary—with the Obama campaign. It’s a great way to show your support for a cause that’s important to you on your big day.

Asking for the kid’s birthday or bar mitzvah money? Talk about low rent. But this is the sort commercialism we have come to expect. And if no special event is forthcoming, one where you can steal all the presents and hock them to reelect Obama, you can sign up to have dinner with him, hot dog.

Barrack has used mealtime to fill the kiddy on more then one occasion. But a small donation for the chance (enter a raffle with thousands of other schmucks) sure beats the 38 grand price tag at Cloney’s gig.

I’m wondering what other novel ways the reelection campaign can use to pass the hat. Too bad the election is in November, otherwise I can see it now ,”This Christmas, lets show how much you love your country, forgo all the presents to Little Timmy and Sally, securing a better future for them is what they need, so give to Obama’s reelection campaign, a small present now can translate into a big present for their future”. Don’t think they aren’t above it.

How much you think they could get if they sold those Greek columns?
