Obama Gave A Measly $5K To His Campaign

From the Politico:

Obama donates to himself

By BYRON TAU | Tuesday July 31, 2012

In an email to supporters this morning, Obama said that he had given to his own reelection campaign for the first time as a symbolic gesture.

In fact, Obama even made a video of his donating to his campaign.

"On its own, what I gave won’t be enough to surmount the unprecedented fundraising we’ve seen on the other side, both from our opponent’s campaign and from the outside groups and special interests supporting him," Obama wrote. "But we have always believed that there’s nothing we can’t do when we all pitch in. That includes me."

Naturally, Obama whines about how much the Republicans are raising. Hopefully, he will be able to put an end to Republicans raising money in his second term, when he will be ‘more flexible.’

But is he using money he might would have used to buy himself a birthday present? His birthday is this week, as his minions constantly remind us. Do you remember knowing the birthday of any other President while they were still in office?

But there isn’t one detail of Obama’s life that we don’t hear about. Except for all of the important details.

While there are no limits on a candidate donating to his or her own campaign, Obama’s donation is the federal maximum that an individual can give to a campaign…

Notice that the Politico can’t bring itself to mention the amount, which was $5,000. Still, since there are no limits for candidates, you have to wonder why didn’t he give more? He is rich, you know.

Maybe his Hollywood buddies warned him that only a fool puts his own money into his own productions.

"Over the past two months, we have been outraised by our opponents. They’ve used that advantage to distort the truth and mislead people, over and over, on TV and the radio in battleground states," Obama wrote in a different email to supporters. "Tonight is one of the most critical fundraising deadlines we’ll face."

Obama never gets tired of whining. He never gets tired of crying ‘wolf.’

    The Fundraiser-in-Chief has held more than 160 fundraisers since he took office, more than Bush and Clinton put together. All that matters to these people is power – and holding onto it.

    From the Washington Post, Jan. 11, 2012: “… With the Obama team releasing its final 2011 fundraising numbers on Thursday….The president reported raising $42 million in the final three months of last year, bringing his total collected in 2011 to $130 million. His campaign did not release its cash-on-hand total on Thursday…..”

    “Raise money from every source every day from Day 1. Stay in office!” is the Demonicrat mantra.

    He raised and spent about $775 million in 2008, double what John McCain raised.

    • Right of the People says:

      More like 196 since he declared.

      If he gets a second term he won’t have to ever worry about it again after he declares martial law and claims the title of President for Life. This evil must be stopped.

    Come On SG – you really think the money came from Obama do you?

    Fastest dine and dash I ever saw was at Michigan State. A table full of academia 6 of them sat for dinner without of course the proper payment method agreement (because HOW is not part of the liberal lexicon). There’s my brother & me (grammatical error intended) sitting at the bar laughing our asses off with the bartender as we watch one get up pay for their own dinner & leave.. then another…then another. When the table was half empty the remaining I swear broke into a trot with the smell of smoldering corterouy wafting behind them.
