Barack Obama Donates $5000 to His Own Campaign … “He’s not just talking the talk, he’s walking the walk”, That’s Why he Donated … Good Grief!
As reported at The Politico, President Barack Obama donated $5000 to his favorite charity, himself. Is Obama that hard up for cash? Things must be a bit tougher than expected for Obama in 2012 in the money beg. Obama certainly is not at a loss when it comes to fundraiser and mucking it up with the Hollywood elite. However, could it be that the “Hope & Change” is gone and he is not getting all those small donations like The One did the first time around? God only knows Obama’s donate to me in lieu of getting wedding gifts was a complete and epic failure, much like Obama’s first term in office.
The beggar in Chief …
“We depend on $5, 10, 25 donations. We don’t get some massive checks
like the other side does.“
[editors note: I guess Obama does not consider $40K a plate Hollywood/NY City elite fundraisers big checks.]
President Obama has given $5,000 to his own reelection campaign, an official confirms to POLITICO.
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.
“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.”
