Obama's Event Donation Registry- For Brides, Birthdays and Bar Mitvahs- a flop

Good Lord. I thought this must be a joke, but it's not. Right there on the POTUS's website:


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.

And on this page, he adds bar or bat mitvahs, for his Jewish supporters. I wonder if he'll add QuinceaƱera for the Hispanic vote.

Sad thing for B.O. is that brides and others aren't as gung-ho about his proposal as he is. New York Post has written this:
President Obama’s bizarre marriage-theme fund-raising scheme — where he asks couples to request campaign donations from their guests in lieu of wedding gifts — has been a total flop.

The desperate initiative, dubbed “the Event Registry,” is being mocked by event planners and couples — and shows how desperate the Obama campaign is to keep up with GOP contender Mitt Romney’s fund-raising.

Campaign officials launched the initiative in late June, the same month Obama raised just $71 million compared to Romney’s $100 million.

So far, “the Event Registry” has been all but ignored on social-media sites — even though Facebook, Twitter and other networks have been a strong suit for the Obama campaign.

Some of the comments from brides

“gross!” and “tacky” — with one writing, “Hell no!”

“Politics and my personal celebrations should not be mixed,” another bride wrote.

Yeah, what they said.

He continuously proves how undignified and arrogant he is.
