Gah! You scared me!
I've set aside time for four supporters like you to join me for dinner.
Most campaigns fill their dinner guest lists primarily with Washington lobbyists and special interests. We didn't get here doing that, and we're not going to start now. We're running a different kind of campaign. We don't take money from Washington lobbyists or corporate PACs -- we never have, and we never will.
No, you just give them jobs in your administration. All the dirt you've been kicking up around Elizabeth Warren has made that painfully clear.
We rely on everyday Americans giving whatever they can afford -- and I want to spend time with a few of you.
...is anyone else getting a sex vibe from this? I half expect him to appear over my shoulder and refill my wine glass without asking.
So if you make a donation today, you'll be automatically entered for a chance to be one of the four supporters to sit down with me for dinner. Please donate $75 or more today. We'll pay for your flight and the dinner -- all you need to bring is your story and your ideas about how we can continue to make this a better country for all Americans.
Pfft, I'll give you those right now. Regulate the banks and health insurance companies (price controls for the latter), forgive student loan debt, allow states to enforce their own usury laws, and roll back the "state secrets" expansion you've been abusing for the past couple of years. It's a longshot to ask you to raise taxes on the obscenely wealthy (even a Nixon-era tax rate would suffice), but I sure would appreciate it since trickle-down economics is total bullshit that doesn't work. Oh, and blowing less money on defense contracting projects that no one wants would sure put a smile on my face. Not that you'd ever see it, because a) you won't do any of that, and b) even if I got to have dinner with you, I wouldn't be allowed to bring up any of this stuff without the Secret Service boxing up my food and tossing me out on my face.
This won't be a formal affair. It's the kind of casual meal among friends that I don't get to have as often as I'd like anymore, so I hope you'll consider joining me. But I'm not asking you to donate today just so you'll be entered for a chance to meet me. I'm asking you to say you believe in the kind of politics that gives people like you a seat at the table -- whether it's the dinner table with me or the table where decisions are made about what kind of country we want to be.
Yep, definitely getting that sex vibe. This is the sort of phrasing you hear from husbands taking their wives out because they feel guilty about cheating on them. Which, honestly, is pretty apropos of the Left's relationship with Obama right about now. He seriously thinks we're all one champagne flute away from forgiving him for jailing all those whistleblowers.
It starts with a gift of whatever you can afford. Please make a donation of $75 today, and we'll throw your name in the hat for the upcoming dinner. I've said before that I want people like you to shape this campaign from the very beginning
Oh really? You could have turned your Team Obama campaign centers into organizational hubs for Democratic community service projects and actually put all that energy your campaign generated to good use. Or you could have kept them all open as campaign centers, since you've spent your entire first term as president begging me for money and giving high-level government jobs to every banking executive in your Rolodex, presumably to shore up campaign funds for 2012. Buy your own votes, you rich asshole.
and this is a chance for four people to share their ideas directly with me.
Hope to see you soon,
Fuck you. Sir. I'll see myself out.
