When David Axelrod Gets Worried, He Always Sends Me E-Mails

Posted on | October 26, 2012 | 9 Comments

And every time he sends me an e-mail, he asks for money:

Robert —
I first met Barack Obama in 1992.
Back before he was a state senator, a candidate, the President of the United States, a husband or a father, he was a 30-year-old guy running voter registration drives in Chicago. He made an impression on me — and when, in 2007, he decided to run for president, I signed up without hesitation.
I thought, if I could help Barack Obama get to the White House, I would have accomplished something great in my life.
It’s been a long and amazing journey, and our small team of a few became a movement of millions. Now, we’re in the final days of his last campaign, fighting to keep Barack Obama in the White House — and there’s not much time left to step up. We’re planning his last Election Night — and he wants you to be there.
Be a part of this. Donate $5 or whatever you can today, and you’ll be automatically entered to meet President Obama and be right up front at his Election Night speech.
I don’t know how this is going to end. But no matter what, I know each of us will have given this campaign everything we’ve got.
I hope you can be there on the big night.
Flight and hotel are covered for you and a guest — donate $5 or whatever you can today, and you’ll be automatically entered:
Thanks for everything. Let’s win this.

If you ever signed up for their campaign’s e-mail updates,  you’re getting a steady bombardment of fear-mongering and worry-warting in your inbox these days. It’s almost as if Axelrod and Obama and Debbie Wasserman Schultz and all the other Democrats desperately begging for campaign cash don’t really believe Nate Silver’s 73.1% prediction.

Maybe they’re worried about The Racist Hurricane.

Maybe they’re worried about turnout in Virginia.

Maybe they’re worried about how moms in Iowa, Ohio, Colorado and other swing states will react to their sick new “do it with Obama” ad.

And, yeah, maybe that Benghazi mess worries them.

    What kind of friend only writes when he wants money from you?… Exactly.

    I’ve started routing a few of my personal e-mail accounts to my gmail account just to filter out spam. (GMail is actually very good at that.) I’ve been getting Obama e-mails to one account for months because I used it to sign up for their creepy (and quickly dying) “watch and report” website or whatever it was called.

    So when the Obama e-mails started showing up in my gmail account, I cheerfully reported them as spam. They don’t show up any more. Heh.

    I thought they met at that men’s bath house in Chicago, the one Rahm and Obama belongs to.

    Awesome! How’s Axelfraud’s addiction to alcohol and antacids coming along? LOL!

    I hadn’t heard that about Axelfraud – Barry and Rahm-Rod-Room, yes.
