A blog post on the Obama/Biden 2012 website on Friday announced the campaign's newest fundraising ploy - the "Obama Event Registry," which asks anyone with an upcoming birthday, wedding, or anniversary to "support the President on your big day" by asking for donation money "in lieu of a gift."
This sounds like a bad joke- something you might expect to see a televangelist do on a Sunday morning. Combine a huge ego with no class and this is what you get.
Seriously, who the hell asks for a gift on someone else's special occasion? Is this some kind of party favor?
What a Kim Jong Il move.
Americans should be outraged that Obama has stooped so low.
Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley assails the Obama presidency for repeatedly ignoring the law:
“The president is using executive power to do things Congress has refused to do, and that does fit a disturbing pattern of expansion of executive power under President Obama,” said Jonathan Turley, a constitutional law scholar at George Washington University Law School known for his support of progressive causes as well as his ire at Obama for not prosecuting Bush officials in connection with alleged torture of terror suspects.
“In many ways, President Obama has fulfilled the dream of an imperial presidency that Richard Nixon strived for. On everything from (the Defense of Marriage Act) to the gaming laws, this is a president who is now functioning as a super legislator. He is effectively negating parts of the criminal code because he disagrees with them. That does go beyond the pale.”
