Joe Biden Sends Me E-Mail

Posted on | September 30, 2011 | 7 Comments

As noted yesterday, the fund-raising e-mails from Obama’s re-election campaign are becoming increasingly desperate:

Robert —

I need to ask you one last thing before tonight’s midnight deadline:
If you know you’re going to donate to this campaign eventually, what’s stopping you from doing it right now?
If you’re going to be a part of history in 2012, it’s time to get off the sidelines.
So, before midnight, will you chip in what you can and say you’re in?
This has never been about Barack and me.
We’re just two guys. It’s folks like you out there who will decide this election.
And what you’re capable of is incredible — if you decide to do it.

Thank you,

P.S. — That deadline also applies to the dinner Barack is having with four supporters. Donate today and you’ll be automatically entered for the chance to be there.

Anyone who signed up for Obama’s e-mail list in 2008 — which I did in an effort to obtain campaign news — has been bombarded by fund-raising e-mails for the past 10 days. Team Obama is already making excuses and seeking to lower expectations.

    He is one of the “bad joes.”

    Is there a registry?

    We’ll know it’s desperate when Biden tells us to give money or the grinning nincompoop gets it.

    “Hold it, men. He’s not bluffing!”

    He is definitely not part of my spawn.

    Well, considering your ages, I would suspect it would be the other way around.

    Therefore, good Joe, the questions must be asked: do you now or have you ever needed frontal hair plugs?

    Obama can’t even hold a $3 raffle without lying.  There are no “winners” in the sense of someone randomly chosen.  They are to be carefully screened and selected.  The campaign talked about a bunch of general categories they would seek to “diversify” the guests among, so the chance of anyone with a GOP donation on their history getting an invite is close to zero.
