Safe Mode: On
Obama Donating $5K to Himself

You may have heard already that President Obama donated $5,000 to his own campaign. Depending on your political persuasion and what you think of the president, that’s either very noble of him or it screams of desperation.

Of course, there is always a third option: you don’t care.


For those of you who do (for a myriad of reasons, we’re sure), we invite you to watch the following video released on Monday by the Obama campaign:

Final thought — In regards to the line, “We don’t get some of the massive checks that the other side does,” that just simply isn’t true. Didn’t Bill Maher and Morgan Freeman both donate $1,000,000 a piece to the Obama reelection campaign?

Furthermore, we don’t recall anyone on that “side” complaining in 2008 when they hauled in a record-smashing $750 million from fundraisers. And we really don’t recall anyone on that “side” explaining how outspending Sen. John McCain by a ratio of 3-to-1 was a “bad” thing.


Okay, so let’s see if we understand this correctly: Romney’s “massive checks” are bad, our “massive checks” are good. Got it.

    Sorry, just can't stand that asshole.

    "Despite Team Obama's continued attacks on Mitt Romney's past associations with Bain Capital, they aren't willing to give back $7500 in campaign donations from....Bain Capital executives. In fact, Team Obama has received more money from Bain executives than Mitt Romney so far this campaign cycle."

  • You may have heard that Obama donated $5000 to his own campaign...
    -In other news, Romney has already donated more than 10 times that much to his own campaign ($52,000).

  • Anyone that votes for Obama should have their hands cut off and then have all those hands turned into ash-trays. Just like the gorilla ones from back in the 60's and 70's.

  • "We don’t get some of the massive checks that the other side does" Perhaps not, you only get the massive amount of votes from people dependent on your system i.e. 95%+ of the Black vote and nearly 60% of all other minorities.

  • It's not 2008 anymore and I didn't hear anything in that video that called Romney's fundraising "bad" or Obama's fundraising in 2008 "good." The fact of this election is Sheldon Adelson, the Koch Brothers and the Wall Street firms that are backing Romney now and have pledged hundreds of millions of dollars, so the 2 million he got from Bill Maher and Morgan Freeman really is a drop in the bucket. Whether you call that good or bad is irrelevant-- the simple truth is small do More..

      Barry’s whole concept of class warfare is hypocrisy at it’s highest level.

      Quote: We depend on $5-$10-$25 checks, we don’t get massive checks like the other side does.
