Thank goodness we have something to talk about today besides this ad in the Washington Times:

Don’t worry, it’s just another in an endless list of “Obama lies” so we can just ignore it too.
Instead, let’s talk about something Big Guy is totally comfortable with: fundraising (since that’s what he’ll be doing for the rest of the
term week). Last night BO was forced to pull out the long knives and go after Romney. (I know, I know “if they bring a knife, you bring a gun” (h/t Rhambo the Magnificent), butt we’re just a little “gun shy” these days, given the current outrage. I mean the Dark Knight thing, not Fast and Furious.) He was just defending himself against Romney’s unfair attacks. Imagine someone using your own words against you, that is so…so, un-American. And probably racist. Here’s Big Guy’s re-direct:
"Frankly, the other side can't sell their ideas so what they're going to do is distort my vision. Earlier today, Gov. Romney was at it again," Obama said as the crowd booed. "Knowingly twisting my words to suggest I don’t value small business. In politics, we all tolerate a certain amount of spin. I understand those are the games that get played in political campaigns. Although, when folks like omit entire sentences of what you said, they start kind of splicing and dicing, you may have gone a little over the edge there. But there’s actually a real choice there."
Anyway, here’s Team Obama’s latest in a long list of reasons why you should give BO some (more) of your money:

As I reflect on it I’m thinking that the “adorable” pitch is actually a much better reason to donate than some of the others that the staff has been kicking around lately. See what you think; here are their top 10 reasons to “Donate today:”
- he saved the American economy,
- he put everybody back to work,
- he’s a surprisingly good
bowler golferpool player,
- he let you keep your health care plan if you like it,
- he kept a tight lid on our national security secrets,
- he will have “more flexibility after the election,”
- he personally capped Bin Laden,
- he closed Guantanamo
- he closed the borders
- you want 4 more years of his
So, since I know you’re in, what’s your numero uno reason? Feel free to come up with new ones – we still need a lot of money!
